This is a two room cabin with the deck extending 16ft out over the water. The main room consists of areas, living room, dining ,kitchen with a separate bathroom (shower only, no tub). The addition is a 16x16 bedroom, king size bed, french doors that open to the covered patio facing the lake. There's a covered paddle boat dock and a lower dock that extends out past the patio that sets you on water level, very relaxing..Lots of wildlife, just sit back and watch.

The space

NOVEMBER: in November I'll have an additional sleeping quarters for hunters as well as the main cabin. Finished heat/ air just no plumbing or beds I'll have air mattresses available for the additional building . Estimated 6 comfortable additional hunters possible but alittle crowded.Hunters,Quilters, Couples, Children are always welcome just remember limited sleeping area, so air mattress might help with that and could be available per request. The property is within walking distance to the Shawnee Forest. The Southern Illinois Wine Trail is a 45-60 min drive.

It would be nice if my guest didn't leave a big mess. I'll have to strip the beds after each reservation so it's not necessary to make the bed . And I'll clean everything else as well but if you didn't leave trash and food containers lying around and just put your trash in the trash can that would help as well

Shirley's place was great. It was quiet, clean, beautifully decorated and had a nice view.

Shirley's cabin was a real treat! She keeps an incredibly well appointed cabin. it's lush, comfortable, and peaceful. the lake is a delight and you will be right on the water. i was up at dawn both mornings, watching the sunrise over the lake with the sweet kitties, puppy, hummingbirds, geese and beavers! it was just the peaceful break from everything that i needed with all the comforts of a hotel suite. Shirley leaves you everything you could possibly need and much more. i can't wait to go back! this is a true find!!

We enjoyed our stay at Shirley's place on the lake. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and some great yummy cupcakes. Thank you Shirley. There are 7 cats but only 1 let me pet it and pick it up on the second day. The neighbors dog hangs out here most of the day.

Very nice and quiet place to enjoy some r&r. Convenient location between the land between the rivers and garden of the gods.
