“Clean, caring, fun, and great place to stay.”
Reviewed 12 August 2012 via mobile

The chalets are very clean, and only 6 years old. We rented a speed boat and jet ski from the resort and my kids loved the experience. A band plays at the restaurant on the weekends while we enjoyed the lake view as the sun set. We went horseback riding at a location they suggested, and had an excellent ride. Most of all, we appreciated the how well we were treated by Micah, Jude and their team. They truly go out of their way to make you feel welcomed, and continue to engage you through your stay. We are not big into fishing, but people I know say it is a great lake for fishing. If you chose Egyptian hills, you will be very happy with your choice.

We stayed in cabin 8 but it had a number 5 on the door. The lake is awesome. Mike the manager, is very nice and helpful. Rented a pontoon and that was quite enjoyable. Had the pizza which I wouldn't rave about. Not much better than Pizza Hut.

The cabin was very outdated. Needs some major updating. Not even a toaster in the unit. Brought the dog which I kept on leash. Everyone else seems to let their dogs run loose. The view from the deck was very enjoyable. I felt for the price of $150/night weekdays was not worth it because of the cabin's condition. Wouldn't stay there again unless I saw other units first hand.

We spent a week exploring southern Illinois. We liked the cabin and loved sitting on the deck looking out across the lake. During the week the lake and resort are very quiet. Lake of Egypt is a beautiful lake. Everyone at Egytian Hills are very friendly. On the weekends they had live music. What could be better than sitting outside listening to live music next to the lake with a glass of wine? We renting a pontoon and enjoyed exploring the lake. We will be back again. the only down size is if you are very tall the cabins might not be very comfortable for you. I believe the shower is maybe 6 ft tall.

We had an amazing time this weekend! From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by friendly staff and the sounds of soothing waterfalls. Egyptian Hills Resort is centrally located around all of the local attractions. We went on the bike trails, wine tours, and rock climbing all within 20 minutes from the resort! We were able to adventure off to see the local attractions; however, we could have just as well stayed right on the resort grounds. They had nightly entertainment and the pizza and homemade ice cream were TO DIE FOR! I would drive 3 hours again JUST for the pizza and ice cream! We are already planning our next trip with our kids and cannot wait! We totally stumbled upon this resort last minute but definitely found our new vacation home! Thanks to everyone for making our anniversary weekend so special. From the cabins, to the food, to the outstanding service...we felt very welcome and truly blessed!

Room Tip: The cabins were amazing! Well stocked and just perfect! We could not have asked for a better place t...

I have been meaning to write a review on this wonderful place. We heard about Egyptian Hills resort from friends and decided to take a trip with my daughter and her new fiance to meet his parents as it was a half way place to meet. What awesome cabins with all amenities that you would need,even fresh fruit on our arrival.I might also add that the pizza and ice cream made our weekend perfect. What a beautiful and relaxing place,wish we could have stayed longer!

My wife and I loved this place. We had a like new cabin furnished with everything we needed and enjoyed a sunset view of Lake of Egypt from our private deck . Next to our cabin was a gurgling waterfall that put us to sleep and calmed the nerves. Please try the beautiful lake side restaurant serving amazing pizza and the best homemade ice cream I've tasted. We especially appreciated the owner's help in enjoying the lake eventhough we didn't bring a boat. Be sure to meet the owners, who have put a lot of love in every detail of their resort. Their object was to provide a place where you can really fullfil your vacation goals. Mine was to relax, enjoy nature, and heal. Done!

We had a wonderful time a few weeks ago at Egyptian Hills and we will certainly be back. The Cabins accommodated our family perfectly and the enclosed deck was great for the little kids. We were able to rent a pontoon boat and a speed boat and had a great time exploring lake of egypt. We did most of our own cooking on the grill and in the kitchen, but the kids loved walking down to the marina to get homemade ice cream every night! The owner and his family were terrific--very kind and helpful. It is a beautiful setting and I would recommend it and will stay there again.
