In Southern Illinois, just a mile from the University in Carbondale, you will find one of the best places to vacation in Illinois. All you have to bring is your swimsuit and lots of water toys. This cabin has everything you will need, even a complete full game room with a pool table, pinball machines, and a fuse ball table.

The house comes with four bedrooms and a private pond, so you can have all the privacy in the world and not worry about a soul bothering you. I guess I would never think of Illinois when booking a beach house vacation cabin, but this one really is something special to stay at.
