My friend and I just completed a week at these fabulous cabins and loved every minute of it! Dixie and Bob think of everything in these cabins, from comfortable accommodations to fully equipped kitchens. Breakfast on the screened porch is simply the best way to start the day. This is a repeat trip, and we will return next year and...

My husband and I stayed in eagles retreat with a group of friends. The cabin was very nice and clean. They have everything you could possibly need there for you. Just bring food and drinks. The screened in porch in the back was nice and big. They have a fire pit out back with wood and chairs all around the...

My husband and I and our two dogs stayed two nights in Eagles Retreat and two nights in Cougar Bluffs at the beginning of June 2015 (wanted to stay four nights but they didn't have one cabin available for the whole time). Cougar Bluffs was a little tight for two people and two dogs but would be perfect for a...

We have been to Rim Rock's Cabins a second time and look forward to a 3rd in the near future as we have designated it as our "family place" to go! I want to say first that I have scoured all over the state of Illinois, for anything that even matches what Rim Rock has to offer, and there is...

I had the pleasure of staying here recently with some friends while on our way to the Garden of the Gods nature area. This spot is an excellent jumping off point for activities in the area and for hiking, horseback riding, and sight-seeing. My group stayed in the Bears Den cabin which sleeps 6. The cabin was clean, well maintained,...

We stayed in Coyote Hollow Cabin. It was perfect for myself, my husband and our two dogs. We were so near the great hiking trails (Rim Rock) fabulous!, (Garden of the Gods) fabulous! They also had a 1.6 mile trail on the property that we did use each morning. Great start of the each day! Also, we started a bonfire...

My daughter and I have stayed at Bears Den twice now and will be back again. Always clean! We really enjoyed the wildlife. Hearing the whip-poor-will at dusk was amazing, one landed in a tree by the back deck to serenade us.

This cabin was charming! We have stayed in the Bear's Den with a group before, but the Cougar was perfect for a couple. So comfortable that it truly feels like a home away from home. We brought our two small dogs and they instantly settled in.
