Hosted by ElizabethAsk a question
In 2010 Marty & Elizabeth Canfarelli relocated to southern Illinois from the suburbs of Chicago. After a 25-year career building high rises in Chicago, Marty turned his attention to building something unique that would provide a venue for families and couples to make life long memories. In 2012 they opened Timber Ridge Outpost & Cabins, A treehouse and log cabin resort in the heart of the Illinois Ozarks. Marty & Elizabeth live on the property and enjoy meeting their guests and promoting this amazing area that is often referred to as “the best kept secret in Illinois”. Why not come down and see what its all about!
Elizabeth purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Elizabeth chose Hardin County
Timber Ridge Outpost & Cabins is ranked #1 in our area on TripAdvisor with over 200 FIVE STAR reviews. We have been featured in the Saturday Evening Post (August 2016), Chicago Parent Going Places magazine (2012 & 2014 & 2017), on Cruisin' Illinois with Julian Cruz (WGN-TV spring 2013) as well as a long list of various blogs, regional publications and more. Come see what all the fuss is about and go home with memories to last a lifetime!
What makes this Cabin unique
Enjoy wonderful sunsets from the 2 person swing on the front porch while listening to the birds sing their evening songs. Play a game of horseshoes or tether ball at the pavilion. Relax in the antique claw-foot tub, swing in the hammock or hang out around a campfire (firewood supplied). You are just minutes away from the famous Garden of the Gods, Rim Rock, Pounds Hollow Lake and more. All guests check in at our new outpost store, Garden of the Gods Outpost; an ice cream and souvenir shop located at the foot of the Garden of the Gods Wilderness area in the Shawnee National Forest. Unlike many cabin places, the owners, Marty and Elizabeth live on the property and are available if you need anything.
