Inn Description:

The Stablehouse is a fully furnished two-bedroom (and futon couch + rollaway) guest rental adjacent to one of the barns and stables of the beautiful 75 acre Herold Farms in Alto Pass. The interiors have a western theme, and a corral with indoor stalls is available for rent also. Easy access to the corral for loading and unloading horse trailers is via a circular driveway. (Note: You must bring your own horses – we do not have horses for rent. We board horses but may or may not have horses in the corral when you visit.). We also have chickens.

The rental includes a full kitchen with front porch, back outdoor patio, rose arbor and BBQ, and sleeps up to six people. The Stablehouse is the perfect getaway for a long weekend or a week vacation. Hunters, equestrians, hikers, vacationers and families with children are welcome! We also like pets, if well-behaved – call to tell us about your pet.

The Stablehouse is on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, in the beautiful Shawnee National Forest and the Southern Illinois Ozarks.
