Hidden Lake!

Letter Welcome to Hidden Lake ... situated on eight acres of woods and gardens in the midst of the Shawnee National Forest, along the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail and just moments away from Alto Vineyards, Blue Sky Vineyards, and Russell Hill Winery to name just a few as well as Giant City State Park, the Cache River Wetlands, Little Grand Canyon, Bald Knob Mountain and the Southern Illinois Wine Trail.

Feel free to enjoy a fire in the chiminea on a cool evening—Tom has a pile of wood always at the ready - and counting fireflies dancing in the tree line or the deer walking by to say hello. Be sure to walk the grounds with an early morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine as you relax from the day's adventures.

Romance Jacuzzi Suite

At Hidden Lake, you have your choice of three luxury suites, each decorated with a different, yet captivating theme and each offering varied amenities. All of our suites, of course, enjoy private, in-suite baths, outside entrances for added privacy and all of the amenities you might need for an extended stay. Each of the Jacuzzi suites incorporate a large, 2-person, Jacuzzi bath while all of the suites also offer the ambiance of a nice, cozy fireplace. The suites also incorporate private balconies with beautiful tree line views.

My favorite, I'm Rebecca by the way, is probably the Romance Jacuzzi Suite with its cherry wood fireplace, oversized king bed and elegant decor. Tom's favorite, on the other hand, is the The Loft with its airy design, wonderful views, and hand painted vignettes of Southern Illinois birds. But take a look at the “Accommodations” page on our web site and choose your favorite. Then click on "Check Availability" at the top of any page or "Book It Now" to see when your favorite suite is available. You can make a reservation online or feel free to give us a call. Whichever suite you select, we feel confident that you'll find the accommodations at Hidden Lake elegant, comfortable and, most of all, relaxing.
The GuestHouse

Before I end, let me encourage you to take a look at the “Attractions & Restaurants”, “Calendar of Events” and the “Special Packages” sections of our web site as well as “Great Ways To Spend The Day”. Each section offers a variety of ideas on ways to ensure that you enjoy your visit to Southernmost Illinois.

Cache River Wetlands

Tom is always saying that Southern Illinois is the best-kept secret around! And Hidden Lake is uniquely situated with the Cache River Wetlands just south of us, Giant City and other state parks just a few miles northeast and northwest of us, and Shawnee Hill Wine Trail Vineyards and Winerie all around. There is so much to see and do and no crowds to hinder your travels. As you make your reservations to stay at Hidden Lake, keep in mind that Tom and I are available to assist with all of your travel plans. The locale of Hidden Lake ensures that you will be afforded the privacy and beauty of the country without needing to travel too far to see our great sites or enjoy a wonderful meal.

Come join us! We truly hope to see you soon and exceed your expectations.
