Rend Lake Cabins in the Woods is a family owned business.  They are owned by William & Cathy Young of Benton, IL.  They are are operated by two of their children, Sarah McCollum and Jesse Young.


The first 5 cabins were purchased by William & Cathy Young in April 2014.  Cabins 1-5 each have two bedrooms, one bathroom, full kitchen, living room, and a porch. 


We built Cabins 6-8 in October 2016.  We added Jacuzzi tubs to these beautiful rustic cabins.   They also have 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, full kitchen, living room, and a front porch.  Cabins 6 & 8 also have a back deck. 


Cabins 9 & 10 were built in March 2018.   Although these cabins have the same layout as the others, they are larger in size, and Cabin 10 has a deck on the back.  We call cabin 10 our luxury suite! Check out the photos!!!


Our five bedroom cabin, Cabin 11, opened April 2019.   This is a 5 bedroom cabin and is perfect for larger groups.  You can have a weekend of fun with your friends or family altogether in one cabin.  Please refer to the cabins tab to see photos of each cabin!

Over the last few years, we have added a few more vacation homes to accommodate our wonderful guests.  We have added The Hideaway, The Farmhouse, The Stone House, The Water's Edge, The Licata House, and Wagon Wheel Ridge.


Stay at our cabins and you will have free access to our deer cleaning & fish cleaning stations.  We will dispose of your deer and fish waste.  Each cabin has a picnic table, grill, and fire pit.
