“Jessica”s place was exactly what we needed for a quick stay as a base for hikes in the vicinity. Please is clean and has most amenities required. Jessica also provides firewood for the pit on request. Kids had a blast making s’mores. On a different note, we were pleasantly surprised that Grubhub delivery was available from 10+ restaurants in the neighborhood.”

“Billy and Hal were gracious hosts. The “cabin in the woods” was adorable! Spacious, very clean, modern and an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of city life. My husband and I enjoyed the cabin and the private lake. I loved fishing on the bank and even taking the boat out on the lake. I brought a paper cup to scoop water out every once in a while. It had a small leak but never felt like it would sink. I was out for hours enjoying the serene and scenic views on the lake. The sights and sounds of all the wildlife was amazing! Humming birds, lizards, deer, wild turkeys, butterflies and dragonflies galore! We will be back again! Thank you again for a wonderful birthday weekend! St. Nichols Brewing Co was great for dinner and drinks! Mia & Bear”
We live in a spacious log home in rural Ava, Illinois. The Shawnee National Forest is just outside our back door. Kinkaid Lake is only 3 miles from our house. We are 30 minutes from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. We welcome everyone, adults and children alike, and well behaved pets.
“Beverly replied my VERY late request for a room very quickly, assuring me that my friend, her pupper and I would have a place to rest our head before continuing our travels. While we got a place to rest our head, we received MUCH more than that. Beverly’s welcoming home made us feel safe and sound, especially during these uncertain times, which was such a nice relief!! On top of everything, Beverly cooked a wonderful and filling breakfast which was an amazing start to the day, with lovely small talk getting to know her! She also asked if either of us had any dietary restrictions before we arrived, which was extremely appreciated. Beverly BnB is a must stay!!”
