Carol's Trip

Carol M

Hi! My name is Carol. I was so inspired by the natural beauty of this place, we built the Inn & Lodge back in 1991 using all natural materials found around our property. We haven't looked back since! We've been in business for over 20 years and our property is one of the most beautiful in Southern Illinois.
