Laid back owner in a small quiet safe town. Guaranteed a peaceful nights rest.
The original bank vault from 1891 is on display in this room which has 2 queen beds, a table and 4 chairs, wifi, and HD flat screen satellite TV.
My motel is located among the center of old downtown Aviston. Post office on 1 corner. The 2nd bank, which is now a civil engineering firm, located on the other. My motel, which was the original bank, at one corner. And an empty lot which was the meat market when I was a child where I would purchase a soda pop after school. Always a Ski which is the local soft drink of choice and you should try one while you are in the area.
  • Great place to stay friendly small town

  • Very nice place. I've stayed at places many times the price that weren't as nice. The old vault door is a really cool extra. Amiable and accomadating host.

    Alesia2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Another great stay in the “Vault Room”. Scott is really “rapid with responses”, flexible and accommodating. His place/space is warm, cozy, and clean! An excellent value!

    Sharon2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Scott’s Place was warm and welcoming- exactly what I needed. He quickly responded and was readily available to answer a couple of questions I had. The space was clean, cozy, quiet, and wonderful !

    Sharon2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great halfway point for us to stay on our way back from AR to MI. The room was very clean and the check in was a breeze. Would stay again.

    Britanni2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

    Danny2019-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Only stayed for a night during a long road-trip, but was a perfect spot to rest my head. Scott had the place ready even with my late arrival. I wasn't able to stick around and explore the small town, but enjoyed the stay here! Thanks

    Emily2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful unit with all the amenities you need for a very comfortable stay. You are completely private. The furniture is very comfortable and so is the bed. The kitchen facilities make it easy to purchase groceries to keep from having to go out all the time. Oh, and before you leave, if you want to go ahead and wash your clothes, there is a washer and dryer there as well! Close to everything, but far enough away to appreciate the privacy. I will definitely drop in again when I'm in town.

    Rich2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • May's place was a great find! It was very clean, spacious, private, and comfortable. We will definitely seek to book her place again when we come back to visit the area.

    Stephani2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little place out in the country. Was fun to watch the animals from the window. Enjoyed my time there.

    You’ll love my place because of the comfy beds, the kitchen, the beautiful wooded setting, the pond, swimming pool, and the views. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Here is a fabulous video made by a guest! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjbGvuCMkXg
    Feed our horses, take a swim in our pool, relax in Adirondack chairs next to the lake, enjoy a fire and watch the stars! This is a walkout basement with projector media room.
    Very private house with only one neighbor.
  • This place is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Tom and JoAnn went above and beyond with extra touches and hospitality. We spent the evening by the fire which is the perfect place to connect with friends, family, and nature.

    Nina2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • JoAnn and her husband were great hosts. The property was beautiful and the guest house was very comfortable and homey.

    Steven2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • JoAnn’s place is a lovely quiet out-of-the-way place. If you have reason to be near Breese, IL, her two bedroom Airbnb is great for couples or families. If you visit in the summer time, the pool would be nice or a walk down the lane.

    Karen2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place was exactly what I expected! Beautiful private place to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends. Between the pond, pool, and horse/donkey there is plenty to do! Very happy to have the privilege to share this home ... definitely would stay here again.

    This Cottage is our Honeymoon Suite complete with full kitchen, king size bed, spa room Jacuzzi tub, outdoor shower, BBQ grill, fire pit and private courtyard. It has a great relaxing view of the lake and surrounding area from the bedroom and porch. The Winery at Shale Lake is also located a short walk away! Guests to all Shale Lake cabins and cottages are subject to a 3% Local Hotel Tax due upon check-in and separate from any taxes paid or collected by Airbnb.
    This Cottage is our Honeymoon Suite complete with full kitchen, king size master bed, outdoor shower, BBQ grill, fire pit and very private courtyard with a multi-level deck. The Spa Room with 2 person Jacuzzi tub also has an electric fireplace, TV, vanity and reading nook. The view of the lake and surrounding area from the bedroom and porch is romantic and relaxing.
    Shale Lake is located on 211 acres of the former Mt. Olive and Staunton Coal Company Mine #2 and The Winery at Shale Lake is the only "Coal Winery" in Illinois (one of only 2 in the US). The property was reclaimed in the 1980's. Susan and David Wesa purchased the property in 2006 and renamed it Shale Lake after the 46 acres of shale hills leftover from the mine. In 2007 they planted the vineyard and opened the horse boarding stables. The Winery (with tasting room) was opened in 2010 and produces 2,000 gallons of wine annually. HIKING TRAILS There are 212 acres available for exploring. The entire perimeter has some form of fencing (some chain link and some barbed wire). There are a few interior chain link fences as well. You are welcomed to explore the entire property except for the outbuildings. There are a few wooded trails that are maintained annually. HILLTOP VIEW There are horses in the pastures in front and behind the cottages. VINEYARD The vineyard is approximately 14 acres planted in 2007. There are 74 600' rows. We have 6 varieties of grapes: Norton, Chambourcin, Marechal Foch, Vignole, Cayuga and Traminette. LAKE Our 24 acre lake was reclaimed in the 80’s. The lake averages 5’ deep - if you fall in, STAND UP! Cabin guests may fish, CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY. We have crappie, bass, catfish and bluegill. FOWL, FUR and SHELL We host a lot more than humans at Shale Lake! You may see a Grey Heron soaring in for the night and occasionally a white one, too. We have Swans and White Northern Pelicans stopping almost every year. We also have at least 3 Barred Owls, a pair of Red Tail Hawks and a mating pair of Bald Eagles that winter in the north woods. We have more than our share of turtles including some snapping turtles the size of a tire! If you find one hibernating in a creek, best to leave it alone! WOODED BOUNTY We have some unusual plants and trees. The old coal mine employed as many as 700 people. There were buildings in and around the woods. The buildings are gone but you will find cactus thriving in the shale dust and a huge bed of iris blooms (planted by office ladies). We have a yucca grove, pecan & walnut trees, plus apple and persimmon trees. The old metal stove was not grown but rather thrown here by locals using the property as a dump. There is a lot of really cool, really old stuff. Please feel free to explore and take any trash…ehh..treasures with you!
  • Great place.

    Lydia2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Haley2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • The place is gorgeous. The decoration is well thought. David provided us with firewood that we went to the winery to order, but he brought up to the cottage. There is a beautiful lake view, you can even fish at it if you want to. Highly recommend, would come back.

    Pedro2019-09-29T00:00:00Z

    Ruth2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Good place to stay for our road trip home. We were coming from St. Louis. Good location if visiting there not too far and out of the city. Good place to sleep and shower if that’s all you’re looking for. Good deal.

    Nancy2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great price. Like others have said not a lot of amenities, but it had clean beds and cold AC. Not much else you need for the price. Would go there again if I need a place to just simply crash for the night.

    Hidden Lake Winery, located in rural Aviston, IL, is situated in Silent Forest, a wooded parcel of land abounding in local lore. These woods have been well known to those who hunt deer and forage for wild mushrooms. Bootleggers hid their still back in these woods to dodge the revenuers in the early 1900s. Our wines are produced with locally-grown fruit and bottled here in our cellar.
    Our cabin creates a perfectly romantic setting for anyone. Indulge in the heart shaped Jacuzzi tub or relax by the fireplace while enjoying a complimentary bottle of wine.
  • Exceeded my expectations 100%! The photos don’t do it justice. So beautiful and comfy, will be back soon!

  • Such a thoughtful couple. The personal touches we above and beyond. The breakfast mindy made was outrageously good. We walked around the town and to a nice place for dinner. Could not ask for more. Very historic town too

    Michele2020-01-04T00:00:00Z

    David2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • From the moment Brett greeted us at the door to when we said our goodbyes we knew we were in a very special home. Brett showed around his home and shared his ideas for dining in the area. We were very happy to be able to walk to DeMaggio's, a quaint Italian restaurant, an easy seven minute walk from his home. He also showed us the bookstore and offered us to each pick out a used book to take with us. There were so many books to choose from. We also bought a card game to play with our grandchildren. When we checked out our room we found some delicious chocolates waiting for us. There was also a mini fridge, on our floor, stocked with soda and water for our use. Our room was very large and comfortable with a private bath. The shower was a sitdown shower in the jetted bathtub. It was so relaxing soaking in the tub, first. The towels were so soft and fluffy!! When we returned from dinner Mindy, who was now home from work, had prepared a snack of wine and cheese and crackers for us to share with them. We really enjoyed our conversation with them and we loved their story. It was a very nice evening. Otis and Gus Gus, their two dogs, are very sweet and love to be included. Where do I begin with the breakfast?? It was amazing and the presentation was very elegant. Mindy had prepared a delicious apple French toast casserole served with homemade caramel sauce, maple syrup and freshly whipped cream. There was also scrambled eggs, bacon sausage, fruit, orange juice and coffee. It was scrumptious. As we were leaving Mindy gave us a small package of homemade cookies for our continued road trip. What a nice gesture. If we are ever passing through the area we will be sure to check for availability to stay with Brett and Mindy again.

  • Travis’s place was the perfect stay for us. We loved the great mattresses after a hard days work. It was extremely clean and updated. It was like a home away from home. The duplex was in a nice quite neighbor. This is a good choice for a family or 2 couples.

    Nancy2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great space, centrally located to Governors Run Golf Course and local winery. Very clean. Simple but attractive space. Highly recommend.

    When we found Wilcott Pines nearly 4 years ago, we fell in love at first site. You will, too! Covering nearly 3 acres on private Governor Bond Lake, the 3,800 sq. ft., two-story house is a log cabin built in the early '80's, completely modernized to comfortably host up to 15 people. Our listing price is for 4 guests. It's $25 per guest, per night additional fee, reflected in your final booking. We are 100% house-trained, well-behaved pet friendly. Please let us know if you have more than 2.
    Because Wilcott Pines covers so much area, there a several spaces where small groups can meet and be separate from one another. There is also enough wide open space in the house for a very large group to be together. This makes Wilcott Pines perfect of any kind of large meeting, executive retreat, writers group, family reunion, etc. And caterers love our kitchens! A full kitchen, including refrigerator, stove, oven, and sink on the lower level allows food preparation to be done away from the main living area. Please contact us for special, one-day meeting prices. The property is near the tip of a peninsula with a full 180 degree view of the lake, we are witness to a wide variety of avian wildlife. Depending on the time of year, we have pelicans, geese, ducks, cormorants, herons, egrets, eagles and many song birds. The lake is stocked full of fish and at any given time you will see several fishing boats on the lake.
    Our neighborhood is 100% residential and very peaceful and quiet. We are located on a peninsula cul de sac with only 4 other houses nearby. We have lots of wooded area, as well as wide open spaces for soccer, croquet or star gazing. The Town of Greenville is a small, Christian college town with little to no night life. It's a one-grocery-store kind of place with very friendly people who all wave when you drive by. Third Street Antiques is the best place around to find hidden treasures. Say hello to the owner Annette when you visit! And Kahuna's has the best burgers!
  • This was an amazing place and was perfect for our couples get-a-way. I would recommend this house to anyone!

    Cary2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great location to host a staff retreat! Scott and Heidi were a great team. Scott's movie collection is an added bonus. The sauna was especially a great experience.

    Michael2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We were blessed on a cold winters day with a comfy couch, fantastic kitchen, fire in the fireplace and the most amazing view of the lake and autumn scenery. Scott's place was the perfect place to hold our retreat.

    Carlene2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wilcott Pines Cabin exceeded our expectations!!! "Family-time" at its BEST! Amenities, kitchen, open-concept living area, ambiance, fireplace, sauna, lake-front fun, room for the entire family, indoor/outdoor dining options, Holiday Magic! The cabin is located in a quiet area, which we appreciated very much. There are several small communities nearby for shopping and antiquing. St. Louis is about an hours drive. Communication with the host and co-host was always prompt and extremely helpful. This is a special property that our family hopes to visit in the future. Highly recommend!!! Thank you Scott and Heidi. ; ) ~Rich & Christine

    Rich & Christine2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Scott's house was fantastic! It exceeded our expectations. We were there on an Elders Retreat for our church. It fit our needs perfectly. The 5 of us were able to each have our own comfortable room and the living spaces were perfect for meeting together and enjoying our time together. The kitchen was impressively stocked as well! Highly recommend.

    Steve2019-11-16T00:00:00Z

    Dan2019-11-10T00:00:00Z

    Mounic Sai Ram2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Super cozy fall weekend at Wilcott Pines. The setting is perfect for the fall colors. Greenville is such a cute and friendly town. Check out the Chamber of Commerce site to see if there are any activities going on. With the chillier weather bring some slippers. The lakehouse has this beautiful tile but it gets a little chilly on the toes. The wood burning fireplace was perfect. They provide the wood, no shortage there, so all you have to do is cuddle up by the fire. They have a sauna as well, which we have not actually used yet, but will next time for sure! Internet connection can be tricky here but we have found the computer stored movies they have work great, there is like 2,500 of them, and something for eveeyone. We always have our laptop that we can connect with their HDMI and tether off our phones if we have issues with Netflix or Prime Video...that works really well for us. Great opportunity to unplug and unwind. We love it here!!!

  • Let me start off by saying there were homemade chocolate chip cookies when we arrived! The loft is beautifully decorated with antique furniture and charming amenities. The balcony was wonderful to have coffee on in the morning. The bathroom had a hot shower/tub with a heated fan and plush towels. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and this loft was perfect. We visited two wineries near by, Copper Dock and Hidden Lake, both had great food and beautiful atmospheres. We ran into one hiccup with our room and Carole had it taken care of in minutes! Her family was incredibly nice and her loft exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend as a romantic getaway!

    Houda2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Co-hosts Carole and Christine have created a beautiful and comfortable space that would be perfect for a private retreat, romantic getaway, or any other reason one might find to visit. It was both sparkling clean and welcoming. Their checking procedures were wonderful, the grounds were calm and beautiful, and their directions were perfect. I highly recommend this property. I've traveled all over the country staying in hotels, b&bs and AirBNBs, and the quality and value for dollar of this property is exceptional. Thanks for a great stay, ladies!

    This "tiny house" is 30 minutes north of St. Louis, MO on US Rte 66 and Hwy 55. You’ll love the view, the kitchen, the comfy bed and the deck. This has 1 queen Sleep number bed and a sofa sleeper, full kitchen with fridge, stove and oven, outdoor grill, large deck, indoor and outdoor dining areas. A short stroll away from The Winery at Shale Lake. All Shale Lake cabins and cottages are subject to a 3% Local Hotel Tax due upon check-in and separate from any taxes paid or collected by Airbnb.
    HIKING TRAILS There are 212 acres available for exploring. The entire perimeter has some form of fencing (some chain link and some barbed wire). There are a few interior chain link fences as well. You are welcomed to explore the entire property except for the outbuildings. There are a few wooded trails that are maintained annually. HILLTOP VIEW There are horses in the pastures in front and behind the cottages. VINEYARD The vineyard is approximately 14 acres planted in 2007. There are 74 600' rows. We have 6 varieties of grapes: Norton, Chambourcin, Marechal Foch, Vignole, Cayuga and Traminette. LAKE Our 24 acre lake was reclaimed in the 80’s. The lake averages 5’ deep - if you fall in, STAND UP! Cabin guests may fish, CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY. We have crappie, bass, catfish and bluegill. FOWL, FUR and SHELL We host a lot more than humans at Shale Lake! You may see a Grey Heron soaring in for the night and occasionally a white one, too. We have Swans and White Northern Pelicans stopping almost every year. We also have at least 3 Barred Owls, a pair of Red Tail Hawks and a mating pair of Bald Eagles that winter in the north woods. We have more than our share of turtles including some snapping turtles the size of a tire! If you find one hibernating in a creek, best to leave it alone! WOODED BOUNTY We have some unusual plants and trees. The old coal mine employed as many as 700 people. There were buildings in and around the woods. The buildings are gone but you will find cactus thriving in the shale dust and a huge bed of iris blooms (planted by office ladies). We have a yucca grove, pecan & walnut trees, plus apple and persimmon trees. The old metal stove was not grown but rather thrown here by locals using the property as a dump. There is a lot of really cool, really old stuff. Please feel free to explore and take any trash…ehh..treasures with you!
    Shale Lake is located on 211 acres of the former Mt. Olive and Staunton Coal Company Mine #2 and The Winery at Shale Lake is the only "Coal Winery" in Illinois (one of only 2 in the US). The property was reclaimed in the 1980's. Susan and David Wesa purchased the property in 2006 and renamed it Shale Lake after the 46 acres of shale hills leftover from the mine. In 2007 they planted the vineyard and opened the horse boarding stables. The Winery (with tasting room) was opened in 2010 and produces 2,000 gallons of wine annually.

  • Shake Lake cabins and the winery were gorgeous. The cabin was small and cozy and very clean. The only downside is lots of bugs swarming to the door at night because of the light outside the door in the otherwise pitch black of nature. That lead to a scary first entry but nothing too horrible. The winery has amazing food and drinks. I’ll be back for sure.

    Samantha2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • I was looking for a place to have a relaxing weekend and this place was just perfect. I loved every part of it -- the tiny house was more than I expected ... the space was clean, the views were beautiful and everything I needed was in the house. In addition, the grounds were beautiful -- horses, trails, lake (I used the canoe!) and the winery. Thank you for such a relaxing get away!

    Mary2018-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! The environment is peaceful and the cottage is quaint and relaxing! David was very helpful throughout our stay. Loved that dishes pots and pans were provided as we made brownies from scratch. Loved waking up to see the horses in the pasture and the sun rising above the lake.

    Tony2016-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • The property was easy to find. The owners were sweet and easy to communicate with. The cabin was cute yet spacious. The property also doubling as a winery was a bonus. The wine was good. They have a dog on the property which made my trip.

  • The photos in the cottage listing really do not do the place justice. They are charming, clean, really unique, and the property's setting is spectacularly relaxing. There was a constant lovely breeze on the front porch and walking around the lake and trails was a great way to spend the afternoon.

    Danielle2018-08-06T00:00:00Z

    Colleen2018-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a relaxing, romantic, and fun getaway at Cottage #12! The scenery is beautiful with horses, sunsets, and view of a lake. You really feel like you're out in the middle of no where! We had plenty of privacy, checking in was a breeze, and the owners were easy to contact when we needed a last minute late check out. We enjoyed sitting out on the shaded patio with drinks and games. The space inside is very clean and had all the amenities we needed for a short trip. Comfy bed, good a/c, three TVs with local channels, and a place to sit inside. Just FYI, we never found the DVD player and the loft area was a lot warmer than the downstairs bedroom. No big deal We wish we would've had more time to explore the winery and hiking trails!

    Mallory2018-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • David was amazing. The cottage we stayed in was perfect for our weekend getaway! It was our anniversary weekend and we needed a quaint place off the path, but close enough to home to get a way to. David's property was PERFECT!!! I wish we could have stayed longer. Loved the winery, he makes a very good Seventh Heaven, a perfect blend for my husbands dry palette vs my sweet one. Loved the trails we were able to walk on to relax and have fun with my husband. LOVED the horses in our front yard first thing in the morning with a beautiful sunrise!!! We will definitely be back at least 2 more times. I REALLY want to stay in the Honeymoon cottage. As well, we want to return with our kids and stay in The Manor! Thanks David for everything. You and your wife are amazing hosts!!! The Fowlers

The lake traffic is light except for peak holiday weekends. Even then we don't generally see more than 5 or 6 power boats at a time.
  • Our family of 11, including 5 kids under the age of 7 loved our stay at The Nest. We had plenty of room for every family to have their own space but yet be together. It was so awesome that they had crib, pack n play, bouncer, and so much more available for a baby. The Nest Team was very helpful and they had awesome amenities available. We celebrated Christmas while there and they had a nice tree set up for us to use. The outdoor space is amazing, and with the warmer temperatures we were able to let the kids play some . They loved the slide! Extra touches like games, blankets to cuddle on the couch with, plenty of coffee, laundry detergent, and more made it feel like home. The kitchen is well stocked. My mom brought baking dishes from home wanting to fix us our normal Christmas breakfast but they werent needed because the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed . We drove to St Louis twice and it was only about an hour to the zoo and the arch . I really hope we can come back in the future!! Thank you Nest Team for a great new Christmas tradition.

  • We love it here. We are reoccurring guests at The Nest and it keeps getting better. Susan continues to take feedback to heart and make small changes to best meet the needs of the guests. Highly recommend for large groups.

    Sarah2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! That was the word I uttered multiple times upon arriving at The Nest to host 10 women for a Wholehearted Women retreat. The Nest team was incredible, from answering many questions and granting us a tour before booking, to being in close contact during our stay. The house was perfect for our fall retreat, providing enough space for us to gather in the living room area during sessions and then transition to the kitchen for communal cooking and meals. We even held a yoga class in the basement! There were plenty of bathrooms and spaces for people to spread out when they needed some space. Everything was wonderful about this property, and that doesn't even include the amazing setting/view. Wow!

  • Susan's "The Nest" Property was simply amazing. We booked for a co-ed wedding party house as a retreat in between the wedding and rehearsals as a place everyone could relax and mingle. It was the absolute best for that. It had everything we ever needed and more!! Would recommend to anyone with a good group looking for the most amazing lakehouse retreat! A+ property, location, owners, and caretakers!!

    Matt2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • The Nest Is a spectacular property that accommodated our ladies retreat beautifully! Susan and her crew exceeded our expectations with regard to communication and responsiveness. The house is tastefully decorated and lacked nothing. The outside space worked well for our evening fires, as well as eating and relaxing on the decks. We hope to return next year.

    Sharon2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great large house for a big group. The outdoor space is great with lots of decks and seating and easy access to the lake. The lake was beautiful and not at all crowded when we were there. Very comfortable beds and lots of space for our group of 20. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking for a large group. We would for sure stay here again!

    Natalie2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Nest is very comfortable, modern, spacious, well equipped, clean, family friendly, well located by the Lake. We loved the place. The Host is very comunicative, kind and helpfull. We highly recomend the Nest.

    Katarzyna2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • This property was amazing. We had a group of 16 adults and everyone had space and we didn’t feel packed together at all. The kitchen was incredible and fully stocked with the items we need to prepare our big meals. The wrap around deck and all the chairs and tables were perfect for hanging out and having meals outside when it was nice. They had a nice TV set up so we could watch our baseball games and play video games when it rained. The outside was set up perfectly with lights, fans, chairs, hammocks and fire pit. The beach area was no hassle and perfect to get in and out of. And when we had questions about things we needed they were quick to respond with helpful information. The lake was peaceful and not busy or old at all. My wife and I were able to paddle board to the other side of the lake without having to worry about boats often. And there are no neighbors close so it was quite and relaxing on the property as well. We will definitely be staying here again when our group decides to head back to the lake. Thanks again for everything!

  • Jill’s place was the perfect spot for our girls weekend. We had the whole place to ourselves, it was sparkling clean, and so much was provided for you in the house to make you feel right at home. It was in a great location and never more than 30min away from beach, wineries, grocery store, or whatever we needed/wanted to do. It was so easy to communicate with Jill and she provided lots of local recommendations for us as well :-)

    Winnie2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • The space is so much greater than pictures will tell. It was roomy and very well equipped. Comfortable beds and games to play. Sunrises are stunning. We couldn't have asked for a better home base as we were there to be "command central" for our daughter's wedding. Even as that event made us a little scatterbrained (losing keys, locking ourselves out) we were treated with perfect kindness and understanding, and responsiveness was immediate. We also took a break to spend a day in St Louis, only an hour or so away.

    Jill2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • There is so much room to spread out-both inside and out! Very peaceful and fresh. Best kitchen supplies of all the Airbnb’s we’ve stayed at!

    We call this cottage our "ladies night out" unit but really it works well for any medium sized group. The cottage is set up for 2-7 people with a king sized bed in the Master Bedroom and four separate beds in the large loft. The short ceilings in the loft are 4' in the front and 3' in the back. The living area has a large dining table and a full sized kitchen. The bath has a hallway dressing area. The porch has 2 swings and a breakfast bar overlooking the view of the lake.
    HIKING TRAILS There are 212 acres available for exploring. The entire perimeter has some form of fencing (some chain link and some barbed wire). There are a few interior chain link fences as well. You are welcomed to explore the entire property except for the outbuildings. There are a few wooded trails that are maintained annually. HILLTOP VIEW There are horses in the pastures in front and behind the cottages. VINEYARD The vineyard is approximately 14 acres planted in 2007. There are 74 600' rows. We have 6 varieties of grapes: Norton, Chambourcin, Marechal Foch, Vignole, Cayuga and Traminette. LAKE Our 24 acre lake was reclaimed in the 80’s. Cabin guests may fish. We have crappie, bass, catfish and bluegill. FOWL, FUR and SHELL We host a lot more than humans at Shale Lake! You may see a Grey Heron soaring in for the night and occasionally a white one, too. We have Swans and White Northern Pelicans stopping almost every year. We also have at least 3 Barred Owls, a pair of Red Tail Hawks and a mating pair of Bald Eagles that winter in the north woods. We have more than our share of turtles including some snapping turtles the size of a tire! If you find one hibernating in a creek, best to leave it alone! WOODED BOUNTY We have some unusual plants and trees. The old coal mine employed as many as 700 people. There were buildings in and around the woods. The buildings are gone but you will find cactus thriving in the shale dust and a huge bed of iris blooms (planted by office ladies). We have a yucca grove, pecan & walnut trees, plus apple and persimmon trees. The old metal stove was not grown but rather thrown here by locals using the property as a dump. There is a lot of really cool, really old stuff. Please feel free to explore and take any trash…ehh..treasures with you!
    Shale Lake is located on 200 acres of the former Mt. Olive and Staunton Coal Company Mine #2. The Winery at Shale Lake is the only "Coal Winery" in Illinois (one of only 2 in the US). The property was reclaimed in the 1980's. Susan and David Wesa purchased the property in 2006 and renamed it Shale Lake after the 46 acres of shale hills leftover from the mine. In 2007 they planted the vineyard and opened the horse boarding stables. The Winery (with tasting room) was opened in 2010 and produces 2,000 gallons of wine annually.

  • David, our host, was kind enough to change our reservation to one that offered a bit more living room space. The cabin we had originally reserved was more of a family cabin, offering more sleeping space. Since it was just my husband & I for Valentines Day, I had seen that Cabin 14 was available and seemed to have more living room space. It ended up being perfect for the two of us. It was very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay in the cabin, at the winery & also did a little antique shopping in the area. Would definitely like to return when the weather warms up & experience more of the outdoors there. Would highly recommend for a weekend getaway!

  • Very cozy cottage overlooking the nearby lake. My husband and I had a short layover in St. Louis, so this was a lovely getaway from the city (~45min from the airport). We didn’t get to do any of the nearby activities since we arrived a bit late, but we do plan on coming back for a holiday! Cozy space but I couldn’t find the shampoo/conditioner, so I supplied my own. The upstairs loft is great, too!

  • We had a great stay. Diane snd her husband are very welcoming and nice. We felt safe. Everything as presented. Very lovable cat too:) And 2 cute dogs.

  • Diane makes a wonderful and full breakfast! This is one of the highlights as that is not something that is often found, especially a hot breakfast! It's a great way to start the day! The beds were really comfortable too!

  • These people are amazing and such warm and welcoming hosts. Cute cat, beautiful & lush rural landscape. Perfect for a casual and quiet getaway.

  • What a wonderful find! Diane and Don could not have been more kind and accommodating to my family. We requested vegan options for breakfast, and they made fresh, amazing food for us. They were flexible with our timing, the house was impeccable, and their kindness made us feel so very welcome. I highly recommend that you get to know Don and Diane by staying in their lovely home whenever you are in their area. Their furry family members were just the right balance of polite and hospitable, as well. They go above and beyond to treat their guests right.

  • We had 14 people over Thanksgiving and we never seemed crowded. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, everything was very clean and perfectly as described. The house is stocked with lots of video and board games. I would love to come back in better weather and take advantage of the kayaks and great outdoor spaces. I would recommend for any large gathering.

  • It was an awesome place for families get together! Clean and comfortable with lot of recreational stuff for Adults and kids! We really enjoyed this place..🙂

  • This house and location are everything that it looks like and more. Our large family had a great time. There is plenty of room, abundant supplies, and thoughtful touches. One challenge we have run into in the past is seating for everyone. This was not a problem at this house. There are several places where large groups can gather and visit both inside and out. The hosts were attentive and welcoming, the beds were comfortable, and lake was beautiful; what else do you need!

    John2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • These hosts are the most generous, most accommodating, and most thoughtful hosts of any Airbnb we've booked through. Communication is near-instantaneous, thorough, and guest-focused. From rapid responses to any questions we had about the property or our stay, to week/day-of helpful messages to provide an up-to-date status of the house, personalized directions straight to the driveway, to answer any question or address any need, it's clear these hosts care deeply about providing their guests with the best experience possible. We were especially surprised to receive near-instant responses to questions we had *DURING* our stay! All of the little touches these hosts put into their guest's stay add up to offer a truly luxurious experience. From a USB charging station in every room, coffeemakers in bedrooms, plentiful towels and linens placed in intuitive locations, shampoo/conditioner/bodysoap conveniently placed in easy-to-use dispensers, to the multitude of activities available (board games/tables, Pool, Mini Shuffleboard, Ping-Pong, Guitar Hero, Foosball, etc) - we found that any need we would have or amenity we would want had already been anticipated and thoughtfully offered to the guests. We had an indescribably amazing weekend at The Aerie - one we couldn't have managed without the loving attention these hosts pay to their guests and their property. We're very thankful for having had the experience to stay at The Aerie, and we cannot wait to come back!

  • The Aerie was an amazing location for our large group retreat.

    Julie2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was great. They went above and beyond to make us happy and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place to a large group. There is plenty of room to socialize and to entertain.

    Abbie2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • A stay at the Aerie will be everything you need for a relaxing get away. There are plenty of comforts, many amenities, and a beautiful view from the house. There are many things to do both inside and out. A great place to just relax with friends/family.

    Paul & Lori2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Aerie was fantastic and better than expected. Plenty of room. No shortage of anything really (towels, dishes, silverware, entertainment, etc.). Being right by the lake was awesome. Overall all of my friends and I had a super fun weekend. FYI the WiFi is pretty slow and doesn't reach many areas of the house.

    Mary2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Paid but realized the location was too far after booking. Requested a refund fifteen minutes after booking and they never responded back.

    Will2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great and so close to everything you could want in Carlyle.

    Chad2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great location at a great price. Good breakfast. I would like to have maybe stayed in the little cabins available on the property, but did not know about them until we got there.

    Barbara2019-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you to Raj for offering such nice accommodations at such a reasonable price. Very lovely hotel, complimentary breakfast was good, nice pool, and the view of the lake from our room was amazing!

    Holly2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • A pretty room, and also a pretty area. I had a blast.

    Tanner2019-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Check in and check out times were flexible to my needs, which was great. Good communication from the host.
