“Great Weekend Getaway”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We celebrated our anniversary and had a wonderful stay in the Woodlands Cabins. They were very clean, comfortable and felt like home. I can't wait for our next visit. The area is full of things to do: hiking, biking, and many wineries.

My husband and I spent a few nights at the end of May for our 15th anniversary. We had never been there and let me tell you it was nothing less than spectacular! The Cabin, scenery, etc. will not leave you disappointed! We couldn't have been happier. During our stay we visited Giant City Park, Southern Illinois Wine Trail and was able to go into Carbondale for some shopping! A must if you are looking for a southern Illinois getaway!

Our second time visiting the Woodland cabins and we chose a different cabin then the 1st visit and it was just a wonderful
Of a stay! Love that everything is there for your use that you really only have to bring clothing and food and drinks not much at all when traveling for a weekend from as far as we travel to get there! Just far enough away from everything but close enough for convenience! And locations to hike and wineries to visit are just a beautiful scenic drive away!! Look forward to visiting again soon!!

An absolutely wonderful place to stay. The cabin was superb with a very comfortable bed, complete with linens, towels, full kitchen, A/C and all. Close to Carbondale - only about 15 minutes from campus. Also right in the middle of the Shawnee Wine Trail. Did some hiking at Giant City, kayaking at Little Grassy Lake and stopped at a few wineries. The cabin with its hot tub was private, secluded and very quiet. I whole heartedly recommend these cabins to everyone (but would love to keep it a secret for ourselves)

Our cabin (Fern Glen) was amazing. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a nice dinner, the hot tub was great, fireplace, and even the washer & dryer came in handy. The firewood was too wet to get the firepit going, but it was a nice setup.

We would love to go back. Our only regret was only staying two nights--at least one more day to do more hiking and wine tastings and enjoy the cabin would have been nice.

Use the canoe, firepit & hot tub while watching the birds and just relaxing. Fully stocked with all you need to cook, nicely furnished & comfy beds.
LOVE this place and highly recommend these cabins. All are a little different and I have seen them all. We have gone with a group and rented several of the cabins...very close to wineries and parks

We had a fantastic time during our stay at Woodland Cabins! We stayed Four days at Whitetail and could not have been happier! The cabin was beautiful, the scenery serene, and the amenities were plentiful. The hot tub was great, the fire pit was relaxing, even the furniture made us feel like we were on a top notch vacation. Being so close to everything and just off the highway made it easy to get anywhere and explore without feeling lost. Jim and his crew were very friendly, and really made us feel like we picked the right place to stay! We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We only stayed at the white tail cabin (their newest), but definitely suggest it if its available.
