My boyfriend and I were in town to visit family for a christening. Instead of staying at the overly packed house with the family, we found this hidden gem. Located on the Trail of Tears, The Goddard Place was the perfect get away. I could rest well surrounded by trees, hills, and a private pond. I strongly recommend to have breakfast with owners, Edna and Jim. Not only were they a joy to greet in the mornings, but Edna's cooking leads to a better day!
This cabin is for the couples, or small families, that can appreciate the thoughtfulness and simplicity of quality spent time. (It's also not far from great restaurants and many wineries).
We are already trying to find another reason to be back soon!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Goddard Place, hidden among the wooded hills of scenic Southern Illinois and the Shawnee National Forest, is a quiet peaceful change of pace. Guests can relax on the back deck overlooking the small lake, just a stone's throw away, and listen to the breeze rustle through the pines that shade the 28' x 16' log cabin. ... more less
