The place was wonderful and had everything you would ever need to cook with. The bedroom where spacious and everything was super clean and welcoming. Tom and Kelley were great hosts and the land they are on was amazing. We come down once a year and it's hard to find a place to stay we were so blessed that their place was open. I would recommend this to anyone coming down to the Carbondale area!

This property is a must visit the host Tom and Kelly are 2 of the most gracious people you will ever meet. The home sits on 19 acres and even though it is only a few miles from downtown Carbondale, it is very private and peaceful. Tom and Kelly made special arrangements at the last minute for my family and I. My family and many members of my family happen to be in town attending the services and burial of my father. All of the hotels were booked with no vacancies due to Southern Illinois University parents weekend. Tom and Kelly welcomed my family. The house has everything you would need and every room is more beautiful than the next. This house is a spacious 4 bedroom slice of heaven ! We recommend staying here, you will have a wonderful time.

Tom & Kelley's gracious hospitality is a huge part of what makes their charming home so comfortable & welcoming. My party consisted of 8 family members all coming from various directions for Eclipse 2017. We had room for everyone with the 4 bedrooms. Mine was super comfy and everyone else said the same about theirs. This place is perfect for a large clan. Very clean & I loved the color coded towels so we all could keep track. And the kitchen! Wow, loved it. Contains everything a cook needs for a good home-cooked meal of which we had several. Had no problems when I had questions or requests. Tom & Kelley were quick on the response. Very accommodating without being intrusive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mulberry Hill Farm to anyone. I would definitely love to come back - especially in April of 2024!!

Mulberry Hill Farm is great - the house is very light and modern, the kitchen is well equipped, and the beds are extremely comfortable! A real home from home! The house was immaculately clean when we arrived, perfect for our fellow guests who had been traveling for over 24 hours. It is very large & roomy, so was the perfect location to host a family pizza night the night before our wedding. Tom & Kelley were great hosts, and held a bonfire for us one night - s'mores and hotdogs, yumm! Thanks for such a great stay! I would definitely recommend Mulberry Hill Farm to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Southern Illinois area :)

Tom and Kelley were fantastic hosts- easy to communicate with, kind, helpful, available, and easy-going. They were there to meet us when we arrived a little later than scheduled, had all amenities you could need available, made a fire in one of the fire pits for us on our second night, and overall just provided us with a perfect place to stay during our time in Carbondale. It was so nice to sit outside by the fire and chat with them! The bedrooms were all very nicely appointed, all with new furniture and very comfortable beds. Tom and Kelley even provided bottled water for us! Perfect stay- highly recommend! Thanks again Tom and Kelley!!

Our family of nine enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home! The hosts were so friendly and accommodating. The home was clean and roomy, and the kids loved roaming the acreage outside. The location was prime--quiet and removed from the hustle and bustle but only minutes away from anything one would need in Carbondale. We would highly recommend this home to others and will definitely return if in the area again!
