“An incredible collection of amenities and hospitality”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

D and Jane and curated an incredible home with an amazing addition in the Pool House. They were incredibly accommodating of us when we stayed there for the Total Solar Eclipse. The space has room for several groups to camp and lodge in addition to the Pool House, creating an incredibly homey community of travelers. They're two of the most interesting people you'll meet, and they cook an incredible breakfast. Stay there.

“The Pool House experience”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The Pool House is the best Airbnb experience we've ever had. Carbondale, IL, has its charms, but Pool House is a destination unto itself. This is a place where the whole is very much more than the sum of its parts. Every last detail has been thought out: from the interior decor to the most basic wants and needs of travelers. Everywhere you turn, there's a furnishing, facility or other object that is fascinating on its own but also exactly what's needed. The Pool House experience includes a private structure with master bedroom, kitchen, full bathroom with shower (including laundry) and an upstairs nook or "bird's nest" for work, reading or a children's room. Pool House opens onto a patio with the pool and fire pit, lounge chairs and further on extensive gardens of vegetables, flowers and native plants. The pool is unusual, being specially designed for swimmer comfort and safety. The deep end plunges to 11 feet, but there's also a shallows for young children. The grounds are secure, well kept and private. The entirety of Pool House except the upstairs nook is accessible. I could envision solo travelers, couples, or families having a great experience. The proprietors are an engaging couple and highly responsive to traveler needs. The lasting impression is having had more than expected and being entirely pleased with it. We'll definitely be returning.
