This a very nice rental home tucked away in a quiet rural area. It was very comfortable for our group of 3 adults and 3 kids. We didn't have a chance to take advantage of as many activities or parks as we would have liked, but we did visit the Blue Sky Vineyard and Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tour, both less than 10 minutes away.
The house itself was great. The bedrooms were comfortable and everything we needed was there, including a thoughtful basket of snacks and eclipse glasses! The air conditioning stayed very cold, even as temperatures approached a very humid 100 degrees. Everything was in very good condition and check out was a breeze. The lot has plenty of open space near the garage or in the back field for a telescope if you like stargazing, and the skies are fairly dark, too. The deck was perfect for the eclipse and the skies cooperated by clearing up before the big event.
You will not find a better owner! He stopped by after check-in to make sure everything was fine and suggested some activities and the Blue Boar BBQ restaurant that was also very good. Most importantly, he kept our reservation for almost 2 years after our deposit. Despite trip advisors horrible customer service and automated review rejection system that didn't want me to discuss last minute cancellations and price gouging at other lodging during the eclipse weekend, I am happy to say in my first hand authentic experience that Toolshed B&B owner Steve was very honest and helpful.
We hadn't been to the area before and it was beautiful. We plan to come back soon for a longer visit and Tool Shed Corner or one of Steve's other rentals will be our first choice on the next trip, too. The location is close to I-57 and not far from the wine trail. Thank you for reading this genuine personal account of my actual visit that contained no hear- say whatsoever about this property.
What a delightful place to stay! We were looking for a place for our 3 families to stay together while in the area for a wedding. We had plenty of room for everyone (6 adults and 2 children under age 2), not only for sleeping arrangements but for just hanging out together in the living room. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils/equipment for cooking. The deck out back would have had plenty of room for us too but it wasn't quite warm enough outside for us to enjoy it. We will definitely consider coming back!
