There are so many things to see and do in Southern Illinois, it
would take a lifetime to take it all in!
    Thousands of visitors come each year to tour the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, enjoy nature at Giant City State Park, or take in a minor league baseball game at The Southern Illinois Miners.
    In addition to the wine trail, Big Muddy Brewing offers Saturday brewery tours and beer tastings;, and there's the new  Southern Illinois Beer Trail
    The appropriately named Panther's Den Wilderness with hiking trails and rock climbing is only two miles from the cottage. 
    The  River to River Trail is also two miles away. 
    For the more adventurous in the outdoors, the new 
Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tour  provides a course of eight zip lines that cover over eighty acres at up to forty miles an hour through the treetops and bluffs. The Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tour is less than three miles from our cottage. 
    Numerous top-notch golf courses are nearby with very reasonable fees.
        Nature abounds right out the front door of our cottage. Deer, turkey, rabbit, squirrel, geese and bobcats are frequently seen by our guests.
