  • Serenity at the lake


    It was very peaceful and relaxing. Close to town.

  • Clean and cozy, great amenities!


    The property is very clean, and included many nice touches (welcome snacks, coffee, water, toiletries.) The location is quiet and peaceful— the deck is a great place for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. The kids enjoyed having outdoor space to play and explore. We even saw a raccoon and a bald eagle during our stay! It’s also convenient to Murphysboro and Carbondale. The owner was very friendly and responsive. Would definitely stay again when in the area.

  • Perfect spot! Great host!


    We were down to the Lake Kincaid area to fish for 5 days. This was the perfect spot for us being so close to the lake. The apartment was perfect with a nice living space, bedroom and kitchen that was stocked better than most rentals I've stayed at before! If you're not fishing this is a great location either way. There was ample parking and the host was super responsive of we had any questions. Thank you for the great stay and we'll see you again next year!

    Excellent accomodations for us traveling for the softball tournament. We had a cozy bed, couch bed, and kitchen available. We were kindly left snacks and an extra bed left on request. Thank you so much!
