  • We loved our time at the Tiny Moon Little Cabin. Kris & Matt were wonderful. They accommodated our early arrival, showed us their other properties and made suggestions that suited our family, especially our 9 yo son. Fishing, kayaking, roasting hotdogs on bonfire...fantastic. The beds were comfy. The cabin was cozy and clean. The view was postcard perfect. I have no doubt that we will be back. Thank you so much for such a wonderful weekend.

    Amy2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place fit the bill for me and my husband. It was easy to find with Google maps. The hill it was on is a bit steep and not the place for someone with balance issues. :) The outdoor shower worked well and was a new experience for me. The interior was immaculate with great Wifi and TV options. We got a fishing license and fished off of one of the docks. Very nice! Would return!

    Arah2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful little lakeside cabin, perfect for a weekend away. The outdoor shower is a really unique, fun touch to the place. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the deck and grilling out. Lots of nearby hiking opportunities! Thanks so much for hosting us, Kris!

  • Amazing little space and a great place to relax!

    Rob2019-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin was wonderful. My boyfriend loves tiny homes, but I was worried it would be cramped. However, it was perfect! The cabin was beautifully done inside, and perfectly cozy outside. I loved loved loved the curtains on the porch that offered more privacy! Will definitely be back for another getaway!

    COVID 19 Update- Our lake house & the lake remain open. More time blocked between guests, bleach & disinfected. Lakefront vacation cottage on Lake of Egypt; 2 open docks, screened porch entire back of home overlooking lake. Sleeps 6. Full kitchen, washer/dryer. Coveted dock fishing. 2 kayaks free use. Grill. We supply bacon, milk & farm eggs! Pets must be pre-approved before booked. Crawling infants - age 2 aren’t suited due to 2story screen porch. FAQ/packing info found below.
    The cottage is a quaint vacation home with modern amenities but charm from the past. The 2nd house built on the lake, it has an old time lake cottage feel with comforts of today. Original wood floors in both bedrooms & 2nd story screened in porch that covers the entirety of the back of the home overlooking the lake. The screened in porch is the gem, according to our guests! Screened in porch is furnished with outdoor furniture, large fan to enjoy your coffee in the morning or evening relaxation gazing at the gorgeous view. Full kitchen with many amenities. Relax on the screened in porch, hammock, porch swing or a chaise lounge on the dock--all why enjoying the waterfront view. 2 Docks: 1 deep enough to tie your boat to, has ladder to jump in & swim in the private cove, or 2nd dock to relax in the chaise lounges. Boat ramps are less than 3 miles away. Maximum 6 guests. Sorry— no parties, events or group gathering outside the maximum 6 guests are permitted. PACKING LIST QUESTIONS? Look here: We have stayed ourselves in several Airbnb's & have noted the degree we supply our guests--cannot be found in any Airbnb & we're quite proud of that. We stock the cottage with complete sets of sheets, blankets, toiletries, towels, dishes, glasses, utensils, pots, pans, blender, toaster, can opener, microwave, mixing bowls, aluminum foil, trash bags, zip locks, paper towels, coffee maker, coffee, multiple creamers & sweeteners, cereal, pancake mix, condiments, milk, farm eggs, bread & bacon! Just bring yourself & your clothes! We also provide kayaks, life jackets, games, floats, beach towels, sunscreen, laundry detergent, bug spray, first aid kit, fishing poles & gear, charcoal grill with charcoal & lighter What!? Yep. That's a lot of extras we spoil you with! Some non-shedding pets, <25lbs, that meet guidelines are allowed, max 2 pets, but please see pet policy below. Guests must message us if they wish to bring pets that meet guidelines and agree to pet policy before booking. Unfortunately, we have guests with allergies & simply do not have enough time to clean to the degree we want our guests to have with shedding fur babies. We have tried, it simply doesn’t work for this lake house & the cleaning schedule. Beautiful breeds we love but do not qualify due to shedding include but are not limited to: German Shepherd, Labs, Huskies, Malamutes. We do love them-we just can't accommodate them at the lake house-sorry.
    Our cottage sits on 2 lakefront lots and has 2 docks available for use in a quiet area of retirees. We have a hammock lake side for you to lounge in, a grill on the ground level covered porch, a fire pit on one of the docks with 2 chaise lounges, 2 kayaks for you use and floats, rafts, noodles and fishing gear for your convenience. We are just down the road from the Country Club golf course & one of the closest areas to get to by land from the interstate. There are several close marinas & you can tie your boat to our dock!
  • Tricia & Randy’s place is definitely a place you want to stay. We have stayed here a couple of times and look forward to coming back in the future 😊

    Andrea2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great hospitality and location.

    Rebecca2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place was just the thing my family needed for a weekend getaway. The pictures don’t do the view and setting justice! My three children had a blast playing in the backyard and walking along the lake shore.

    Joshua2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay. You will be comfortable and the view from the living room can’t be beat.

    Zoran2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

    James2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The screened in porch is the gem! We spent a cozy Thanksgiving here and were able to prepare our meal with all of the tools in the kitchen. Beautiful decor, tons of personal touches, board games, and great location!

    Kristin2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Easy check in. Felt like home walking in with the great decor and coziness. The screened in porch was absolutely beautiful and so peaceful to enjoy every morning. The extra breakfast items provided were a great touch! It was conveniently located close to everything we wanted to try from hiking at Giant City to dining in at Walts! With it being right on the lake it was absolutely perfect and we cannot wait to return for a future summer trip!

    Ashley2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Exceeded expectations. The screen in porch is fantastic and has a beautiful view. The lake house is clean and full of thoughtful details. I’d highly recommend and look forward to return trips.

    Near Ferne Clyffe state park, Giant City State Park, multiple southern IL wineries, and many other lakes and parks. Fishing, boating, mountain biking, hiking, relaxing!
  • Kris and Matt's cabin was perfect for our stay. It had the snug and cozy feel I was hoping for. The Wifi is a bit spotty, but they have a Smart TV and a nice selection of DVDs. They have a lot of kitchen utensils and plenty of blankets to stay warm. The cabin is a bit far from major hiking locations, but usually no more than an hour and a half. The owners were very helpful and communicative every step of the way. Easy check in and check out. Beautiful new dock and water amenities available just across the street. Stocked with plenty of firewood. Very nice place to take a vacation.

    Briana2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place!

    Timothy2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • 2 adults and 2 large dogs. Weekend stay. Traditional (owner built) log cabin that is elevated with a spacious deck/porch. Full bath and kitchen with everything you need (minus a dishwasher. It’s cabin living. Hand wash em) 2 separate sleeping lofts that get nice and toasty. Gas fireplace was a nice touch for our frigid Valentine’s Day weekend. Matt and Kris quickly answered all of our questions and checked in periodically via messenger to make sure everything was going well. Along with the red roof retreat, they have 3 other structures. Their personal/main cabin. A one room tiny house. And a currently under construction tree house with 2 decks, full kitchen, full bath, and trap door style sleeping quarters. We CANNOT wait to visit one of their other two properties this spring/summer!

    Amanda2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I stayed at the Red Roof cabin for our first trip to the Shawnee National Forest and had a great stay! The cabin was cozy and clean, and we had all we needed to cook a little and relax. The location is about 45 mins away from garden of the gods and under a half an hour from giant city. Kris was so helpful in making sure we were comfortable and settled in. I’d recommend staying here to anyone visiting the area :)

    Leslie2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • On Christmas Eve Eve :) my husband and I had to leave to head to Illinois for a family illness emergency. Kris was so helpful as we drove through the night she made sure we were all set before arrival. With the stress of the trip and holidays it made our sudden trip much more enjoyable having an amazing place to stay!

    Brandi2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Kris’s place was a perfect spot for a family get away. Quiet, relaxing and so comfortable.

    Chris2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little cabin that has everything you need for a nice relaxing weekend.

    Mus2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Red Roof Retreat is clean, well appointed, and in a perfect location for enjoying the Shawnee National Forest! Kris was a fabulous host - helpful guides to the local region, comfortable accommodations with the thoughtful touches that make a rental 'cozy', and a great space exactly as described. We enjoyed the lake access and stargazing, easily took day trips to Makanda's art community (Vulture Fest!!), and explored the Shawnee. This trip was just my husband and I, but our 2 kids would have fit the space great also. We would book this cabin for a future family trip or another weekend away together.

    We live in the midst of the Shawnee National Forest on Lake Of Egypt. Our home sits at the top of a hill less than 300 feet from the beach in a gorgeous secluded subdivision. We are 5 miles from Ferne Clyffe State Park and less than 10 miles from a beautiful winery with lots of Antique Shopping in any direction.
    Our home sits on 4 acres in a small cozy subdivision. There is natural beauty and safety and comfort for those who like to walk & hike the outdoors.
  • We were provided a bedroom, bathroom, and common space with couches. Most importantly for us, these folks are pet-lovers and we were able to stay with our new puppy. Peggy was super cool and nice, and the kids who stopped in and out and the pets on premises all added to the charm.

    Steven2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay. Peggy was amazingly accommodating to my crazy schedule and her and her husband were very sweet and helpful. Great hosts! They also have adorable and super friendly dogs!

    Eric2018-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! They were incredibly flexible with my unique schedule and were always offering to go above and beyond! Communication was fantastic and I would undoubtedly stay again if I needed a place to stay near there.

    This lakeside retreat is sure to delight. From the expansive decks offering beautiful Lake of Egypt views to the cozy interior this house will help you feel at home.
    This mansard style house was built in 1969. The owner and builder of this beautiful home constructed the Poplar Street Bridge in St. Louis, Mo. Leftover material from the bridge was used to build the home. It has been fully remodeled with the integrity and charm of the house maintained. This lakeside retreat sits on the beautiful Lake of Egypt offering gorgeous scenery. Bring your fishing gear for the warm water lake and swim suits as these are musts when spending time at the lake. Kayaks, and lake tours are available for rent. The house has a full kitchen and washer and dryer. With three bedrooms, there is plenty of space for you and your extended family to enjoy our treasured home. There are three bedrooms on the upper floor. The master bedroom offers a king size bed whereas the other two rooms offer queen size beds. There is a full futon downstairs as well. The house has a game room for the kids and a party room for adults. On the deck outside you will find a wood burning fire pit as well as a charcoal grill. There are lots of inside and outside spaces to have a lovely family get together or a private romantic getaway. We cannot wait for you to enjoy our home as much we do. Welcome to Lake Living!
    The neighborhood is peaceful and beautiful and has good walking and bike riding areas.
  • Wonderful place to stay on the lake.

    Angela2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great cozy place with everything you should need to enjoy yourselves.

    Rebecca2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house and location. Easy communication and friendly host

    Tracie2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Bell's place was great for our family trip to Southern Illinois. She was very communicative since booking up until the day we left. Her assistant greeted us and showed me all the light switches and heaters throughout the house. There is no shortage of recommendations for local places to eat or things to do. We had no issues the entire time we were there. The location on the lake was beautiful and the house was perfect size. I love that the bar area was separated from the main part of the house so if people went to bed, and we stayed up playing games, they weren't bothered. We would recommend staying here for anyone looking for a place in the area!

    Sara2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The lakeside location in a quiet neighborhood was great for a relaxing weekend. We went in the fall and used it as a base to explore nearby Shawnee National Forest. The house was clean and had plenty of space for our family of 5 and our dog. Bell greeted us in-person and was very attentive throughout our stay. Overall a great experience and I would gladly stay there again.

    Ben2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Comfy beds. Lots of kitchen amenities- made cooking easy. Wonderful that it's dog friendly. My dog is a big dog but he's well- behaved-at least as far as being house trained (too unfocused to sit and wants to pull on leash and wants people food but won't chew or pee or do anything destructive), so it was great for it to be no big deal for him to come along. Great hiking within 1 hour drive. Wilderness preserves were great. Thanks Bell!

    Josephine2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • I imagine the location would be even more beautiful on a spring or summer day. It was pretty nice on a fall/winter day. Wish the downstairs bathroom was not a split. Other than that everything was great. Lots of nice places to sit and rest or relax!

    Trevin2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Expect the best! this is a wonderfully decorated lake house. Expect to be able to swim, fish, boat, or just relax around the fire pit. Bell has thought of everything, so you don't need to pack much. A great stay!

Amy was a great host! We didn't realise it was 25-30 minutes out of town (our fault) so next time we come we will pack more food and be more prepared! We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again in the future!

    Britne2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

  • We had a fantastic stay at Lori’s place. It is very secluded and we had a lot of time to de-stress and relax. We especially loved the outdoor grill and the hot tub was really awesome to relax in with the outdoor lighting. The kitchen is so well put together and furnished with everything you may need to cook. We would highly recommend Lori’s place to any traveler’s to the area!

    Eric2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed at More than 20 Airbnb’s and Lori’s place is clearly the best one we have ever stayed. Lori’s attention to detail and decorating and a fully equipped kitchen and an out door grill and fire pit and hot tub and etc and etc. The pictures, while amazing, do not fully show just how amazing her place is. We will be back!!

    Lake Front House on Lake of Egypt in Southern Illinois. Our house has a great view of the lake, beautiful sunsets can be seen from our decks. The lake is well known for fishing and recreation, is on the northern edge of Shawnee National Forest, where you can enjoy the many hiking and biking trails. There are several wineries and micro breweries in the area. Great place to kick back and relax.
  • Great place to stay, very comfortable with a great location on the lake!

    David2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a spacious house right on the lake. The house is warm and inviting and a great value. Would definitely stay here again

    Omar2019-09-20T00:00:00Z

    Danielle2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful and quiet "get-a-way" spot for a couple or a family. Warm and cozy Lake House cabin feel. I grew up often going to lake houses with my family and this felt like home.

    Lance2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! We had a great time here

    Michaela2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • This house is a great place to make family memories on the lake! We rented it for the weekend to celebrate my mom’s birthday; the big selling point for her was the one review we read that commented on the gorgeous sunsets, and they weren’t kidding. Best sunset spot on the lake! The one (very) minor oddity was the power plant that was sitting directly across the lake from the house, it marred the view a bit, but we got over it fast and enjoyed a weekend of floating in the lovely lake and making family memories we won’t soon forget! Bud was awesome to talk to and an incredible host! We all agreed that we would definitely stay at Bud’s Place again!!!

    Erica2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • The house and location are great! We had 6 people stay very comfortably. The inside is very cozy and easy to relax in, and at night sitting on the deck is wonderful as well. The dock on the lake is also very easy to chill out on and swim near. 10/10

  • Great place to stay! Lakeside is super cool, and the private entrance makes it feel like you’ve got the place to yourself. Hosts are very hospitable as well!

    Putty2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, wonderful host and super clean. The views are amazing and right out the window! I would recommend staying here and would definitely come back.

    Michael2018-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Bryanna is a terrific host. The place is clean and friendly with very nice touches. For anyone looking to spend time near Egypt Lake or the Marion area this is a great place for friends and family. One caution; if you have weak legs or breathing conditions the climb from the lake to the Rock House is probably not for you.

    David2018-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend Bryanna's place for you to stay! It is a beautiful peace of the lake and the accommodations are amazing! You won't regret staying here!!!!

  • What a great place to relax and unwind. This house is so great and has plenty of space. The basement is like it's own little house! Jill had complimentary snacks, games, movies, and books to keep us busy and the house is super cute. Also very clean. We enjoyed fishing off the dock and smores by the fire pit. Cant wait to go back!

    Shannon2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Jill’s lakeside retreat is a great find. Three bedrooms upstairs, and one down makes plenty of room for sleeping. My bed was super comfortable and the pillows were perfect. Jill has went out of her way to make sure all the necessary items are already available for an easy getaway. Kitchen was well stocked and cooking was so easy. All the condiments and spices made the best touch. No need to run out and get dinner or spend extra on those necessary items. We enjoyed coffee each morning while relaxing in the living area by the fire. My mom loved the view and the peaceful atmosphere. We will absolutely be back!

    Morgan2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jill offers many nice touches to her home . She is quick to respond with helpful information. Her home is exceptionally clean. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

  • Jill and Wes have a special talent for making complete strangers feel welcome into their home. Not only were the amenities incredible, but the location on the lake and set up of their house both were fantastic. The property is nothing short of beautiful. If you are looking for a relaxing stay down at the Lake of Egypt, Jill and Wes can provide a great experience!

    David2019-10-27T00:00:00Z

  • Mark is a great host. I will be back next year

    Lisa2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Marks property was fantastic. The house had great amenities including complete cookware and a working propane grill. It has a fantastic setting on the lake and has seating both inside and outside to allow you to enjoy the views even if it’s cold out. Mark was always quick to respond. This is a great place to stay if visiting the Marion or Carbondale areas.

    Cam2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Recommend it for sure!!!!, Second time I’ve been there this year , and will be back in March ,Awesome place to go fishing or just sit on the back deck and do nothing!!!!!

    Carl2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very comfortable, cozy and charming. it is located near a lot of nice hiking trails. The view of the lake from the porch and the upper terrace is just beautiful! There are plenty of dishes, towels, everything that is needed for the nice stay. Both bedrooms are large, the mattresses are good quality. Mark responded to all communications immediately and answer all our questions. We really enjoyed out stay and would recommend this place to everyone.

    Galina2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Responds quickly to any questions. We definitely will be booking again in October.

    Adella2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely LOVED our stay at Mark’s place! The home is quaint and beautiful with a view that is unbelievable. The lake is clean and clear for swimming or floating right off the dock. The home is equipped with everything we needed for our stay, which was really nice. Mark was extremely prompt and informative throughout our stay as well! If in the area, this little gem is where I’ll want to be, without a doubt. Thank you, Mark!

    Karri2019-07-02T00:00:00Z

    You’ll love my place because of its roominess, privacy, beautiful lake views, peaceful, natural surroundings, and location on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest. Leave city stress behind and just relax and recharge or be as active as you like. Swim or fish off the two-slip boat dock (available for your sole use). Take your boat out fishing or water skiing, hike one or more of the Forest’s trails, or visit a winery. My place is good for couples, families and groups.
  • The place was beautiful. Deck is great for fishing, many locals stop with their boats to fish. Be aware, many steps to the dock and in the house for the elderly. We loved it though.

    Jacquie2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Janet's space was perfect for our ladies weekend getaway! The house is cozy with Gorgeous views. We plan to come back already!

    Mary2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Janet’s place was perfect for our girls weekend. We loved it! Couldn’t have asked for anything better and check in was super easy!

    Caitlyn2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Janet was a treat to work with. She responded immediately when I had any questions and let us check in early due to early arrival. The house is great and comfortably slept 8 of us with room to spare. The dock is awesome for fishing, relaxing or jumping in the lake for a swim! Great place for great value!

    Blake2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing home on the lake! Our family didn’t want to leave. Just the location enough made this a spot everybody wanted to come to. The water was deep enough for adults and kids to jump and swim around in. Fishing off the dock was easy with the table and chairs set up and it must have been a good spot since all the boat kept stopping there to fish. If the location on the lake wasn’t enough, the large home would definitely have you in love. A large and gorgeous 3 story home with enough beds to comfortable sleep 11, all the amenities and comforts of home and more! When the night came to an end the back deck was a perfect spot for some card games and wind down. We will definitely recommend and will be staying here again next time we’re in Southern Illinois.

    Sasha2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house with great views of the lake. Comfortable for a large group. Easy lake access for swimming and boating.

    Penny2019-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • You can’t beat the location and amount of space at this house! Janet is so helpful and we will definitely be returning!

    Jen2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • If your looking for a house that has space this is it! The kitchen is equipped with things you didn’t even realize you needed. Top of the line appliances. Plenty of dishes, pans galore. Wonderful deck overlooking the lake. The deck has a great swing also. Plenty of seating for meals inside or out. Great dock space for your boat(s) we enjoyed fishing (yes we caught fish!) from the dock. Both bathrooms had numerous big fluffy bath towels. Comes with a good dozen or more beach towels. Had great cellphone reception and had no need or desire for any WiFi. Plenty of parking space. The stairs weren’t a big deal we just stuck everything in a beach bag and small cooler when we went down to the lake. Definitely will be back. Great house on the lake.

  • I had a crew of guys staying at Jerry's place while we were working on a project in time. Jerry was easy to communicate with, and his place accommodated all of my guys.

    Ferris2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • It was really amazing house looking to visit again!!!!

    Arun2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • If your reading this review to find out what you should expect when staying in any of Jerry’s rentals, well I can tell you that you should expect that at checkout you won’t want to leave and will wish you had stayed just a little longer! I have had the opportunity to bring my family to two of Jerry’s listings and overall if I had to review both experiences I would say the hospitality was my favorite part of the rentals. My family and I travel everywhere (from Hawaii to Maine) and stayed with Airbnb on most all of our trips. I don’t believe I have had a bad rental in all our bookings however Jerry and his crew are by far the most welcoming we have EVER stayed with. If your a person that travels (especially with Airbnb) then you know just how important hospitality is. We didn’t just feel welcome, we felt right at home! I am always a renter who try’s to make sure we left the homes we stay in better then when we arrived however as the mother of three accidents can happen. Spills, muddy feet, and sometimes rough housing take place and relaxation is hard to find when your worried if something like this happens the owner wouldn’t be understanding. Thankfully I have not ever had to cross this path, I want to point out that Jerry’s rentals are beautiful but very kid friendly. I never feel as though I’m walking on egg shells in his homes. Which makes my trips that much more enjoyable. I want to also add that Jerry is simply a text away and he is always quick to get you a answer for any question you may have. Even when your arriving at 10:30pm and are not sure if your in the right driveway. Yup, that would me with my awful direction reading skills: ) He didn’t just respond quickly but also with kindness. Making me feel less awful about possibly making him up with my silly questions that was actually already stated in his directions on the listing. Moving on, you will find my review on Lakeside (the first home I stayed in) I believe under the lakeside rental. Now I will tell you about the Lake Egypt Home! Like I said earlier in my review I have three children and lots of nieces and nephews who will also travel with me. This house was more than plenty to accommodate all of us. We had 3 adults and 9 kids and never once did I feel like we had beds we didn’t use. Everyone had their own (extremely comfortable) beds that were dressed with linens with freshly folded towels on top! The kitchen was perfect. As a family who generally cooks all their meals instead of eating out, the kitchen is a big deal for us when renting. It was equipped with everything we needed to feed our 12 plus family! They even had snacks in the basket for my hungry children to grab. Normally I hear the words “I’m starving” from at least one child while we unload. However They found the snacks as soon as we walked through the door, making my unloading process a little less chaotic. Again in the mom world, THIS IS HUGE! The bathroom in the master bedroom was perfect. My boys did lots of fishing and canoeing while we were there. This made for lots of dirty boys with muddy feet. Perfectly located was a bathroom off the front door that they could stay on the tile and shower there sweet selfs off before coming into living room area. Again, making my cleaning up so much easier. Also this meant that huge master bathroom stayed fresh for this momma who very much enjoyed soaking the jetted tub. All the bathrooms had soap, shampoo and conditioner for you to use in the event you would happen to forget your own. Again, this is a nice add when you arrive at 10:30 and realize that you left your toiletries bag on the table at home and your more than ready for a shower after your travel. Don’t worry about bringing extra towels. The house is equipped with plenty of bath towels and was clothes. Another one of my most favorite features of this house is the outside area. We brought scooters that the kids all enjoyed riding up and down the paved driveway. Under the large deck on the back of the house was a area that we could put a large baby pool (we brought the pool from home) for the little kids to swim in while the big kids were out on the lake. It kept the little kids cool and out of the sun. The yard was perfect for all the bubbles and toys to be played with. The beach that you will find passed the driveway to the house was under construction while we were there. However this didn’t stop us one bit. Jerry had four kayaks with paddles waiting for us at the edge of the water. We spent a lot of our time fishing from the kayaks while exploring lake Egypt. As people who do lots of fishing and traveling it was incredibly nice not to pack my own kayaks with us to get there. We simply hopped on the four by four that Jerry has waiting in the garage, drove down to the beach, hopped on the kayaks and off we went. It was like hitting the EASY button. Which meant when we were hot or hungry we were able to just run back and forth without the hassle of loading and unloading. I booked this house as a last minute rental when my boys ball games were cancelled. Hoping we could go back to see the elk on Jerry’s mountain. Only to find that all houses in Samson’s mountain were booked . I was sure we wouldn’t have as much fun here as we did...

    Jennifer2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Jerry's is lovely, lots of space and clean. My family really enjoyed themselves. They all would like to return. Thanks Jerry

The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need and then some. We hope to book with Toni again in the Spring. We enjoyed the place that much. The host is very informative and gives detailed instructions for check in and check out. Quick response to any questions or concerns you might have. We recommend Toni’s place!!

    Melissa2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Just as described. Very peaceful, clean and no problems at all.

    David2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Little touches like cold bottles of water in the fridge and snacks on the table made me say, "WOW!" as soon as I entered. Everything seemed brand new from carpeting to paint to appliances. I came looking for an isolation pilgrimage-- no people and zero noise. That's exactly what I got. Though when I did have to leave for anything stores and restaurants were about 10 easy minutes away. Plus it gets so dark at night that I never woke once in the middle of the night. This was far beyond my expectations. Toni was polite and gets back to ya quickly.

  • We had an amazing stay. The house was so comfortable, and we'll kept. The lake was beautiful, off the main drag so semi-private as there were neighbors but they were all super friendly. I am hoping to come back as it was a great weekend get away, but felt I could have stayed a full week!

    Jessica2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. The house took our entire group (14 including 6 children) with ease. By far our favorite amenity is the dock and lake. We lucked out with the weather being perfect, and we spent our entire 3 days on the dock while the kids enjoyed the diving board and slide. Being next to the boat landing made putting in and taking out my jet ski's super convenient. The large deck, patio area and outdoor kitchen were really handy as well. All in all , this place exceeded our expectations in every category. Mary Ann was very quick to respond and easy to work with.

  • I was looking for a relaxing weekend on the lake and this place definitely delivered! It is a gorgeous house with plenty of space for a couples retreat or in my case just a group of friends. The house is located on a quiet street and as soon as you walk in there is a great view of the lake through a wall of windows. A large kitchen and living room also allow you to view the lake through the big windows. The master bedroom is huge with a large enclosed shower and a walk in closet. The additional bedrooms are also very good size and there is an extra room downstairs with a ping pong table and tv for extra entertainment. We enjoyed grilling out on the deck and afterwards spent hours in the lake. We had plans on having sitting around the fire pit also but just couldn't get away from the water. It had a good size dock with a diving board and slide and also provided some kayaks for a little extra entertainment. I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this home.

  • Our stay at the cabin was perfect! Mary is very easy to communicate with as she is friendly and has great response time, and nothing could have been better at the cabin. We found the home easy to navigate with the meticulous labeling and many amenities. We WILL be back!

  • We were warmly welcomed by Mary when we arrived in the early evening. We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house. We found the information in the listing to be accurate. For a quiet, rural, get away with a fantastic view I'd visit again.

  • Location, location, location. Mary was a wonderful host and Rock Ridge was the perfect location for a weekend getaway from Memphis (a short three hours). Mary guided us from the interstate to the house since it would be after dark and we could have easily missed the driveway since Google doesn't map the address correctly. She welcomed us warmly and gave us a great overview of the home and a map with local restaurants, hiking, wineries, and landmarks. The cabin is located against bluffs that we enjoyed exploring and more hiking at Ferne Clyffe and Giant City. And we can't forget the wineries that were great fun to visit. The cabin is perfect for a couple or family with a wonderful loft (King bed and en-suite bathroom) upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs and another living area. The kitchen is outfitted with great appliances and just about any tool you might need. We could not have asked for more and look forward to visiting again!
