#loveourguests "Oh my! We have stayed in MANY AirBnB’s over the years but this place tops them all. The hospitality is beyond anything we expected, the cozy decor and amenities are fantastic. When we walked in, my kids asked “could we please come here every year!” Explore the Shawnee National Forest, biking, and enjoy the outdoors ....Restaurants, bikes, comfortable beds, upscale amenities, soft towels, DISH TV, books, a hot tub & firepit, make it enjoyable. Business ready, 24 hour check in.

The apartment is very homey and welcoming. We were provided with lots of local tips such as restaurant recommendations and must see locations in Shawnee National Forest. She even gave us maps to take with us because of the poor cell service.

Thank you guys for staying with us, we're so glad you had a great time! The maps do come in handy for the forest...you never know when you will have service, so I'm glad they helped! It was a blessing to meet you, we would love to have you back anytime, there's a lot to see in the forest and this time of year is beautiful!

My boyfriend and I were going back to my hometown for my cousins wedding, which is about a 2.5 hour drive from STL. We usually stay at a hotel but since using AirBnb we decided to see if there were any in Southern Illinois for a little more comfort. We found the Apartment at 217 …

Wonderful, comfortable accomodations. Close to hiking and biking by car, and great walking distance to neighborhood restaurants. We came because of the Shawnee Forest but would have been thrilled with a vacation in which we never left the apartment.

Response from Judy:
Thank you for choosing to stay with us! We enjoy the hiking and biking but like you, at the end of the day, it is nice to walk down the street and have several choices for dinner! So glad you had a great family time here, we would love to have you visit again...every season is different and there is so much to explore in our area.
