Where you’ll be

Marion, Illinois, United States

Location, Location, Location! Our cabin is not just centrally located in the heart of all things "southern Illinois" but more importantly to you, as the traveler, we are only 4 miles from I-57 and I-24- making our destination assessable and stress-free!
The cabin is located on our homestead property- on what we consider "the back 5" acres. This is separated by a privacy fence so you have ample privacy.

Well hello there. I'm Allison and as you can tell by my reviews and Superhost status, I LOVE what I do. I have been an Airbnb host since 2016. The husband and I started out hosting guests on our 50 foot motor yacht on Kentucky Lake when we owned and operated Kentucky Lake Boat Charters. We love meeting new people and sharing our best experiences- so much in fact that we decided to build cabins on our property to host guests in southern Illinois. Thus, Dam Near Lake of Egypt Cabins, LLC was born. After a couple of years under my belt and getting the backend management to a well-oiled machine, I have grown this business into Southern Illinois Vacation Rentals, LLC. and Professional Hosting Services for other property owners. Fun fact: Dam Near Lake of Egypt Cabins is a pun to help identify our location- Near Lake of Egypt, but not waterfront. We are just 1 mile from Lake of Egypt's dam. ;-) Randoms about us: - Michael is a USCG Captain, fantastic wakeboarder and a spirited entrepreneur - Allison is a military combat veteran, Director of Community Programs for the great city of Marion, and a health fanatic. - Dam Near Lake of Egypt Cabins, LLC is a certified veteran-owned, woman-owned business. - We have been married for 17 years and have 2 kiddos, a loyal mutt, a docile Great Dane and a couple of lazy indoor felines - When we aren't working, we love fellowship with others around a good campfire or working on house projects.
