Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Apple Canyon Lake - The Hideaway

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy a peaceful cabin experience in our fully furnished lakefront home with private dock. We are the only rental property on Apple Canyon Lake licensed by Jo Daviess County that owns all the way to the water and has it's own private dock.

A perfect getaway any season, surrounded by a canopy of large oaks, with excellent swimming, walk-out fishing, trails, and nature around every corner.

Choose your experience... Rent a pontoon from the marina and cruise the lake or swim and fish right from the dock. Meditate down by the quiet, private shoreline, or next to the warm fireplace. Spend a day hiking the scenic 13-mile trail around the lake, cross-country ski or downhill ski at Chestnut Mountain. Guests can also plan active day trips to the area attractions such as the wineries, Galena shopping/restaurants, Grant's home, horse back riding, sleigh rides, Mississippi casino boat, Apple River State Park, New Glarus (WI) Brewery tour, Mineral Point (WI) shopping.

Located in a unique part of Illinois where rough terrain, hills, and beautiful views were spared by the glaciers. 25 minutes east of Galena, Il., and Chestnut Mountain ski resort. 2.5 hours west of Chicago and most suburbs. Discover this well kept secret that our many returning guests have.

About Beth

With smaller children and a busy lifestyle, we aren't able to spend as much time at 'The Hideaway' as we would like. We have opened our home for vacation rentals so others can enjoy the many fun activities the lake has to offer and make as many wonderful memories here as we have!

Beth purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Beth chose Illinois

Apple Canyon Lake must be experienced to be described. It's like the northern woods of Michigan or Wisconsin, yet only a couple hours from Chicago. This is Illinois best kept secret and why we bought property here.

What makes this cabin unique

The areas land and lake are extremely well preserved and not overloaded with people, streets, houses, etc. There's an abundance of nature around every turn and excellent fishing.

Our "Big Chill" Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend together with friends. Six of us converged on this home for a weekend away and it was perfect. There were enough bedrooms for all. The kitchen/living/dining area was spacious, open and perfect for food, conversation and games. Lakeside coffee in the morning & a cozy fire in the fire pit at night were the highlights. Beth was so accommodating and easy to work with. My only regret was the weather didn't cooperate as planned (could have been better, could have been worse). I would love to come back when the leaves are at their peak and the sun is shining. Next time :)

Wonderful home,

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at house for 5 days. We were having a family wedding. The house was very large and spacious and had everything we needed. Very secluded and wonderful outside space. We really enjoyed the lakefront area with great swimming from it.

An awesome experience!! Highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my son and a few of his friends to enjoy fishing and the area. The owner was so accommodating and quick to respond to any questions. The cabin is so nice (everything you need), so well maintained and a great location on the lake. We could have not asked for anything better!!!

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a weekend and it was great! Very clean and had everything you would need!! Our weather was very chilly but by Saturday evening we got to enjoy the firepit outside for several hours!! The kids enjoyed fishing down at the lake also! Friday evening was cold so stayed inside and enjoyed playing pool in the basement. I highly recommend this for families and/or friends who want to get together for a few days .. or longer.

Owner's Response: Countless hours by the firepit - telling stories, favorites of the day and of course eating s'mores! One of the highlights of our time at the lake! Thanks for sharing your experiences!

The Pefect Hideaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family wanted a weekend away.. close to home. We had ages ranging from 8 months to 83 years young!!

The Hideaway was perfect!! Boating, fishing, grilling out.. The fire pit, smores, and a hot game of Monopoly!! We had such a great weekend. This house is tucked away but still close to everything. The home has everything you would ever want or need. The house was exceptionally clean and well stocked. It truly is the perfect spot. We will be back again.. Thank you!!

Apple Canyon Lake house

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Apple Canyon Lake house was right on the lake with a dock, multiple decks, fire pit, and many nice amenities. We were able to swim off of the docks and use our kayaks and boat for fishing and other fun. The house is close to the pool, launch, and restaurant. The house was clean and provided games, pool table, and dishes for cooking. It was very fun to stay at this house. We would surely return.

Owner's Response: Being close to the marina is a bonus for lake owners who have a lot but no place to stay. You can launch your ACL-approved boat and dock it at the house all during your stay!
