"After an extremely hectic holiday - we enjoyed a couple days here at your cabin. We really had a wonderful time together her sitting in the hot tub. We hiked through a creek bed - but mostly just relaxed - sleeping in with no phone. This was our second visit - and we can't wait to return."

"This is a great, close getaway. Our 2nd visit was as nice as our first. We'll be back for a 3rd."

"My husband brought me here for the 10th anniversary of when we met. He tried to keep it a secret - but couldn't. We've been other places but none compare to this. It's like a dream place. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be back."

"Great place to spend Valentine's Day - This is our second visit our third will be in April. For Christmas our son and his wife wanted as their gift a night at the cabin - as we were having coffee this morning we noticed a family of dear at least six out back. So peaceful, so calming."

"We just wanted to say thank you for letting us spend a great quiet romantic weekend. This is a great place, the location is very nice. It was a great time spending it alone and getting to know each other on a whole new level. We had a great time. The place was nice and clean. Everything you need was here. Thanks again and we will be back."

"This was a much needed and most appreciated upside from the busy world! The cabin truly is a hideaway. The wondering view that changes as daylight passes into evening was wonderful. The serenity of the forest was soathy. Walking the trail was a joy! Hours spent in conversation by the fire, meals shared at the table, and precious moments of intimacy are all memories to be treasured." 

"We've always wanted to get away from our busy schedules and hectic life. Looking on the internet, this place sounded and looked just what we were looking for. It has been a wonderful weekend. Your cabins are more than we expected. We were able to enjoy this weekend with good friends of ours in a relaxing sort of way. We really enjoyed tackling in the hot tub and sitting around the fireplace. We will definitely be back and we will also spread the word about your cabins. Thank you for a perfect weekend." 

"I loved the cabin. It's a wonderful place to rekindle "romance" everything was incredible!"

"Me and my fiancé got engaged the Sunday before Christmas and because we are both still in college and working we haven't been able to find the time to just be together and enjoy each other's company. After hours and hours of searching the internet we stumbled upon this place and decided to spend our spring break here. The place is wonderful. Ever detail was seen to. We loved the hot tub and the peaceful surroundings. We plan on visiting again soon."

"The cabin is great! I'm addicted to the hot tub! I will be back, soon hopefully! The peace and quite of this little Illinois sanctuary couldn't have come at a better time I really have needed this break from it all. See you soon!" 

"This place was great! I loved the fact that you guys stocked the cabin with movies, linens, and plates, silverware, etc.. It made the stay so much more enjoyable. Thanks so much for all the things you did to make the stay better. Hope to come back some day."

"Sitting here rocking in this wonderful chair and watching the trees swaying in the breeze pulside, I can't imagine anything or anyplace more peaceful."

"There is a little pond up the trail just past the boundary marker. If you are quiet you will be able to see a grand old turtle. The due up by the cabin were a pleasant surprise. What a great place. Well worth the 600 mile trip to get here. Bill Smith Springs is a lovely place t o hike, but be sure to bring water shoes and wear shorts, the rocks are slippery. Thanks for a great vacation."
