About Tana Ivitts
We have run a family owned business in Paducah, KY for 40 plus years. We both grew up in the Western KY area and have lived in the area our whole lives. We moved to Southern Illinois in 2014 and have been here ever since. We bought this cabin and completely renovated it in 2014. We are both outdoors enthusiast. We love to fishing, hunting, hiking, horse back riding, and ATV riding.
Tana Ivitts purchased this Lodge in 2014
Why Tana Ivitts chose Brookport
Our Cabin is centrally located on 100 Acres between Paducah, Metropolis, and Golconda. It is only 18 miles to any of the 3 locations. This property adjoins the Shawnee National Forest on the north and west side. There are trails from this property right onto the forest. The main road that runs by this property is the Ohio river scenic byway. This property is located 1 mile North of The Smithland lock and Dam. If peace and serenity are your idea of vacation this is your place. Very secluded with lots of wild life for viewing. It is not uncommon for whitetail deer to feed from the apple trees in the front yard. We are a short distance from The Southern Illinois Wine Trail and Garden of The Gods.
What makes this Lodge unique
From the moment that we laid eyes on the Rustic Log Cabin we knew we had found our home. It has 2 master suites one at each end of the house. Perfect for privacy when we have company. Enjoy your own private pool and Tiki Hut perfect for just 2 or entertaining as well. Our Cabin is perfectly nestled on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest. We love it and hope that you will to.

We loved staying at the cabin! It was very relaxing. Tana was great to work with. Will definetly be back.
We took an adult weekend get away. The property and location was beautiful! The property was exceptionally clean! The owners had a stocked kitchen, wood pellets, firewood, personal hygiene products in the bathrooms, pool floats, and information about local attractions! It was a perfect place to relax by the awesome pool! We will be coming back with our children and for more adult only get aways! We really can't say enough great things about the property! You won't be disappointed!!
Absolutely beautiful place. Once you check in you won't want to leave to go anyplace else!
I want to live here. Comfortable, beautiful!
Great place and even better hosts
A lot of thought has gone into making guests comfortable. This is our second trip to the lodge and we plan to come again.
It was so great to see you again. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We couldnt ask for better guests. Cant wait for you all to come back.
Awesome family get-away!
Tana and Jimmy were fantastic hosts. The cabin is pristine, and has everything we needed. We connected with our kids (9 and 7 yo) with no internet and minimal cell reception. Played in the pool, relaxed in the hot tub, explored, watched movies, played board games, and had s great time. The Traeger smoker was a nice surprise too. We can’t wait to be back.
We had a great weekend at the house! It was secluded, but provided all the modern conveniences that we are used to. We are already working on planning our next trip down!! Owners were attentive and easy to contact with questions.
