Enjoy tiny farmhouse life in this adorable 375 sq. foot cottage. Loaded with everything you need this little cottage is nestled privately behind some trees on our 11 acre farm. You will soon forget how close you are to town with the beautiful view from your windows and the pasture fence just steps out the back door. Whether you’re here for the wineries, amazing hiking, an SIU event (3 miles) or to visit with family, the Homestead Cottage will provide a comfortable retreat from any adventure.

The space
We have a few animals on our property, some the horses and chickens and others free roaming like our dogs and cats. The dogs and cats are very friendly and will always want to greet whoever comes to stay. Feel free to say hello to the horse from the outside of their space and if you would like to see a chicken just let me know since I know which of my ladies are the friendliest.
*If you plan to bring a dog please contact me and know there is no fence for them. They must also be friendly with other pets!

Unfortunately, if animals are not your thing our place may not be the best for you.

Carbondale, Illinois, United States

We only have one neighbor at the front of the property across the pond. Our house sits almost 1/4 mile back from the road with the cottage even further back.

Wife of a hard working husband and mom to two great girls. We love the outdoors and traveling together.

During your stay

Our house sits at quite a distance from the cottage (nearly 100 yards) so if privacy is what you seek than you are in the right place. However, we are friendly people and always enjoy getting to know someone new.
