This 1856 homestead is a comfy retreat nestled in the hills of Southernmost Illinois. You can "get away" & still be close to unique villages, music venues, organic farms, local artists & wineries. If you enjoy hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, cycling & being in nature, its' on your doorstep. We are also smack in the middle of the wine trail. A mile to Cobden, 10 minutes to Makanda, Anna & Alto Pass, 20 to Carbondale. Well stocked home. I pay hotel taxes from your payment & $20/hr for cleaning.

This house is perfect for a quiet escape. We had such a great time, and Bonnie is the best Air BnB host we have ever dealt with.

Bonnie’s place was awesome! It was just what I needed to get away. I could literally live in the house. I felt right at home! It’s between a lot of great trails in Shawnee and Panther Den if you want to Hike. Also a short drive to Ferne Clyffe. The front porch is great for sittin…

Loved unplugging at the homestead! Took Bonnie’s message to heart and turned my phone off for the entire weekend. It was a great experience!

I'm so glad you were able to completely unplug! Congratulations! it's not an easy thing for us to do, in fact, I don't think I've had my phone off for three days in a row in over two years! Those people who have done it say it's so rejuvenating for them. So glad you enjoyed your stay.
