For those seeking a calming getaway, this secluded cabin is the perfect property. -- THE PROPERTY -- Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: 2 Twin Beds Nestled amongst tall trees with rolling hills and flat rock creeks, Makanda's beautiful and peaceful surroundings will not go unnoticed! Boasting 1,000 square feet of living space, this beautifully crafted cabin with knotty pine woodworking presents a rustic charm. Built in 2015, this upscale cabin is perfect for smaller families, friends, or couples traveling together. Inside, the property features stylish wood decor, beautiful granite countertops and all the amenities necessary for the ultimate home-away-from-home experience. The chef of the group will appreciate the new stainless steel appliances in the fully equipped kitchen and center island for extra counter space. With an open concept kitchen and living area, sit back and relax in front of the flat screen TV as the fireplace warms the space and dinner cooks in the oven! The early riser of the group will look forward to enjoying their morning coffee on one of 2 porches or the outdoor patio. Overlooking the landscape and rolling hills, the large, open-air front porch with beautiful wicker chairs will quickly become your favorite place to unwind. Additionally, the back screened porch provides a tranquil space to sit, read and dine while nestled in the forest. For outdoor amusement, the charming patio beside the cabin has a built-in fire pit for campfire fun! If the group is looking for other outdoor activities, the property sits on the boundary line of the Shawnee National Forest and is within hiking distance of the Panther's Den wilderness attraction. With many adjacent hiking trails connected to the River to River Trail, you'll be minutes away from beautiful strolls through the forest! -- THE LOCATION -- From this private cabin, you'll be in the perfect location to explore the area. If you're seeking a waterfront view, Devil's Kitchen and Crab Orchard Lakes are both within proximity. The outdoorsmen of the group will love the closeness to Giant City State Park. Nestled in the Shawnee National Forest, this park is known for the unique impressions made by the massive sandstone structures. With hundreds of species of wildflowers, over 75 varieties of towering trees, and outdoor activities such as camping, horseback riding, and fishing, this park is perfect for visitors of all ages. Work up an appetite after a day of hiking and exploring? Visit Blue Sky Vineyards for some delicious wine and pizza pairings!
