KibbieKabin Cabin Rentals are cedar log cabins nestled in the dense woods near Oblong, IL of Crawford County in Southeast Central Illinois. It's more than just a cabin rental.  You will enjoy the picturesque setting overlooking the one-acre pond that is nicely stocked with channel cat, bluegill, redear, hybrid sunfish and bass. All fishing is catch and release only.  This pond offers excellent fishing as well as a refreshing swim. The water is kept clean, and being spring fed, is fresh and cool even in the sweltering summer days. It is located on a tract of 130 acres of land that includes a variety of terrains. It consists of 64 acres of woodland, 30 acres of cropland, and 16 acres of grasslands, parts being creek bottom. This offers the best habitat possible for great whitetail deer and turkey viewing as well as all other types of wild life. You may even see a coyote or bobcat. This beautiful forest is woven with miles of mowed trails for hiking, jogging, cross country skiing, or mountain bike riding.  Convienience is a plus as your cabin rental is located right where your outdoor activities will be.

Don't let winter keep you from visiting our cabin rental!  The woods is a spectacular sight after a fresh snow.  February is a great time for looking for deer sheds.  Don't forget your fishin' pole and auger for some great ice fishing.  In the spring you might want to bring your rubber boots but it is well worth seeing the forest come back to life!  Wild flowers canvas the ground and you'll probably get a visit from some migratory fowl returning to their summer home.  Of course the heat of the summer months bring about the opportunity to play hard at any of your favorite past times, take a splash in one of the ponds, lay out and soak up some rays or just relax and watch the many varieties of birds.  Bring your camera and get some great shots of the hummingbirds suspended in midair as they extract the nectar.  And then there is the splendor of fall with all the many brilliant colors that can send you into a hypnotic trance.  Any season is a great time to get away to your cabin rental in eastern southern Illinois.  Rest, reflect and enjoy the life you deserve! Although you may see some photos of a canoe or peddle boat we no longer offer these. Sorry.

Currently we have three facilities to choose from for your cabin rental. Both are very similar in style and amenities but mostly differ in size.  The aroma is relaxing while you rest in front of the gas fireplace. As well as the fireplace they also have air conditioning. There is plenty of hot water for your shower or doing the dishes. Turkey Roost, the smaller cabin, sleeps two in the full size bed on the main floor . The mid sized cabin, Buck Rub, can sleep 6 people with a full size bed and two twin beds in each of the spacious lofts. Fox Den Cabin is the largest of the three with beds for 10 with 2 full size, 2 twin, twin bunk beds and a queen size in its private bedroom.  Fox Den has a very nice ramp and porch for handicap accessability.  It has 36" doors and the full handicap tub and shower.  It is has plenty of room for  navigating around the cabin.  These cabin rentals are furnished with dishes, silverware, cups, glasses, cooking utensils, pots and pans, coffeepot, toaster, stove (Turkey Roost cabin does not have a stove but a two burner hot plate), microwave, refrigerator, towels, toilet paper, paper towels and bedding.  Settling down in the evening is easy while you watch one of the satellite TV channels which includes the locals and they all have DVD players. Buck Rub and Fox Den have 54" big screen tvs!   Some books and magazines are supplied. Provided outside are large front porches, picnic tables, fire pits with grill and gas grills.  Firewood my be purchased for a nominal fee.  You are permitted to bring your own firewood if the wood comes from within Illinois due to the cronic problem of the Emerald Ash Borer.  As of 4/9/12 we have installed mini split heat pumps to keep you comfortable whenever you are here. We want your cabin rental to be comfortable and memorable!

All cabin rentals are non-smoking facilities.  Please help us preserve the fresh cedar scent by observing this.  Smoking is allowed outdoors and ashtrays are provided on the front porches.  Also, pets are not allowed.   

The reception hall is a wonderful place to have your event!  Weddings, Receptions, Christmas Parties, Business meetings, ladies retreats, seminars, family reunions or just about any activity that involves a larger crowd. There is a 40 x 10 covered deck overlooking the pond and woods. Be mesmerized by the fountain in the pond as you enjoy this deck.  It is a great relaxing view.We have a parking lot laid down that should handle 75 or more cars and plenty of other additional parking is available.  A large stationary dock extends 44 feet out in the water. It has a 5 foot wide approach to the 12 X 16 deck out in the water.  This offers a beautiful place to take your vows if you want an outdoor wedding. This is a unprecedented setting for your wedding and reception, family reunions, Christmas partys or any kind of function.  It is a great place for your company's Christmas party or event.  It will be the "out of the office" place for meetings or conferences.  Tables and chairs are funished for approximately 250 people.  The Hall will has two restrooms with plenty of facilities and there is a kitchen area with plenty of serving area, stove, fridge, microwave and double sink. There is plenty of heat and air conditioning so you will be very comfortable. The view is awesome from what ever window you look out.  All is handicapped accessible. Your caterer and beverages are welcome, it's your party!
