We want to make sure our guests leave Rock Ridge feeling happy and content. Here is a sampling of the feedback we've received from our guests.

Awesome house with amazing views

This is our second time staying at Rocky Ridge and we will definitely be back. After a day of hiking or touring the wine trail, we loved coming back to the house to cook our dinner on the grill and enjoy the sunset on the deck. The house is beautifully decorated, very homey and has a perfect layout for two couples. Mary was also very responsive and accommodating before and throughout our stay. We would highly recommend you stay at this house on your next visit to Southern Illinois. You will not be disappointed!!


Beautiful property inside and out.

This is an extraordinarily nice home surrounded by beautiful southern Illinois forest. Our stay there this past weekend was perfect and there wasn't one thing that was lacking. Probably the cleanest vacation rental I have ever stayed in and we so appreciated all the small details and touches that made our family get-together (six adults) so enjoyable. Hardest part was deciding which deck or balcony to sit on with my morning coffee and take in all the beautiful scenery! In the front there was the gorgeous sunrise and in the back there were the trees and rocks. Ended up doing both and then hiking up the hill behind the house to sit on a giant rock in the woods. This is a stunning property. Thank you for sharing it.


Peaceful, restful, fellowship with my sister.

My sister and I take an annual scrapbooking trip with some backroading. This year my niece joined us and our sister in Christ/dear friend! There was plenty of room for us to spread out all of our wares and scrap to our hearts content while enjoying an incredible view. We will be back as scrappers and my sister will be come back with her husband and Harley group of sweet friends. Thanks for a WONDERFUL stay!! All of our needs and desires were cared for in this fine home and pleasant details. Its immaculate, modern and the layout is perfect! The scenery cannot be topped!


Girls Weekend

We rented this property for a girls weekend, We absolutely loved this property! It was absolutely clean and everything we needed was available. With 6 adults we had more than enough room and options, the view is absolutely beautiful, loved watching the deer.



Beautiful, clean, well-cared for, attentive owner...would certainly return.


Luxury cabin in the vale!!

We spent a long weekend at the cabin, perfect spot for star gazing, relaxing on the huge deck with coffee, or enjoying a local wine or beer. We were very pleased with the vast view of the southern hills and woods from the cabin. Evenings we would spend time on the deck overlooking the pond, watching herds of deer come out to feed in the field below the cabin. The cabin has plenty of space for family or friends to gather, an open living room, spacious kitchen with quality appliances, huge kitchen island, used as a food prep area or an eating area, plenty of outdoor areas with patio furniture provided. Mary, the manager, is professional and works hard to make your stay enjoyable. The cabin did not have a tea kettle for hot water, Mary brought her own over within the same day of requesting for a tea kettle. We had a very relaxing time between enjoying the dark sky at night, comfortable deck with a gorgeous view and tranquil surroundings!!


Wonderful house, great views

We came here for a weekend bachelor party and left incredibly happy with the home and location. The house was clean, fairly new and had fantastic views from the porch and living room. The grass was also recently cut which allowed us to play yard games and grill outside. Mary was incredibly helpful with all our pre-trip questions and the instructions for getting into the house and using everything were clear. If I had any concerns it would be the internet speed and the distance from other things, but both of which didn't bother us at all. If you go somewhere as pretty as this you shouldn't spend your time staring at a screen. And while our group was used to getting around quicker, 25 - 35 minute drives to our destinations wasn't bad at all. Overall, it was a great experience and I'd highly recommend the house. Everyone was really happy with it.


Perfect fall getaway!

Great stay once again! The house is sparkling clean and has everything you need. Took grandkids into Anna to pick pumpkins, perfect! We'll be back next year!!!


Great location, fantastic view

This property has everything you need. Three spacious outdoor seating areas to take in the flora and fauna. Comfortable sleeping, spacious well designed kitchen. Great central location. We were close to all of the parks we wanted to explore. Deer grazed in the front yard every morning and evening. We loved our stay. Our host was delightful.



What a house!!!!!!! AWESOME!!!



This is my second visit to Rock Ridge and will not be the last. Such a beautiful property. The grounds and the home were perfect for my needs, such an enjoyable time for me and my family.


The place was beautiful and well stocked!

From the fuzzy blankets to the pancake griddle, the owners thought of it all! We loved seeing the deer in the front yard every day!


Incredible property, wonderful property management

Danny and I got married at Rock Ridge this past weekend. The property was beyond perfect. The open space in front for ceremony overlooking treetops, gorgeous/spacious backyard for the reception, picturesque nature surrounding on all sides, fire pit and room for dancing/kids to run, large kitchen, and comfortable house with all the amenities for my immediate family to stay made for a magical day. Could not have asked for more. Mary was just a text away through the whole process and more than helpful in the planning. We can't wait come back for our anniversary.


Picture perfect!

This was the perfect place to spend our family Christmas. The house and the property are absolutely beautiful! The manager was professional, thorough with instructions and very friendly. The kids loved the swings in the backyard as well as the woods. We can't wait to visit again!

Must See To Believe

PERFECT. If you are looking for a beautiful home and unbelievable outdoor views in Southern Illinois, look no further. This A-Frame home has it all. From the open floor plan to the 3 separate levels of living space and all new furniture and appliances, not to mention neat and clean. It is perfect for a family, group, or romantic getaway. I can not say enough about the views from this location both day and night. The owners were very accommodating to all our needs. I was sad to leave, but will be back!

The perfect indoor and outdoor space for any age.

The layout of this house is perfect for 2-3 families. The inside space is lovely and cozy, and the outside property is wonderful for exploring without even driving anywhere. I don't think you can get any more privacy or access to such beautiful private bluffs and forest trails than here. We hosted a family reunion with people coming from all over the country. The huge balcony with a spectacular view was perfect for the family photo and for relaxing. A short drive gets you to the Shawnee Canopy Tour zip line, several forest hikes, and at least 5 wineries. We could not have asked for a more perfect location or living space than Rock Ridge! Also, the property manager was very accommodating and available to answer all of our questions .

We want to make your vacation special. Don't hesitate to ask about in-house massage therapy, catering, event planning, or guided climbing and repeling. The only limit is your imagination!
