Woodland Cabins

Beautiful, Peaceful, and Close to Everything.

Located 5 miles SW of Carbondale and on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, Woodland Cabins sits at the edge of Southern Illinois rolling hills and the Shawnee National Forest. Woodland Cabins offers four luxury accommodations, sitting on 44 acres of privacy, where mature woods are interspersed with open fields.

Sleeping only two people, we consider our luxury accommodations to be “romantic retreats”, providing the perfect place to get away with that special someone. Whether meeting the morning sun or putting daylight to rest, the tranquility from your private deck with your own private hot tub inspires relaxation and romance. Let Woodland Cabins be your place to relax, unwind and make memories that last a lifetime.

Amenities: All our cabins have an outdoor hot-tub, gas log fireplace, flat screen HD TVs, DVD Player and outdoor fire pit with fire wood. Towels & Linens and hair dryers are also provided.

We just stayed at Woodland Cabins and it was fabulous! Very secluded yet close to town. Extremely clean and fully equipped. We enjoyed coffee in the hot tub while watching the wildlife. We will definitely be back!

We’ve stayed twice now, and we won’t stay anywhere else while visiting the area. The hot tub, outdoor space, fireplace, cleanest rental I’ve ever seen…all make for the perfect escape from reality!
