Overview

About the property

Set on a beautiful seven acres of wooded hillside, Homestead Hideaway offers you a unique opportunity to rest and relax within a peaceful setting. Located just 15 Miles from Galena, Illinois, our cabins in the woods can be your home away from home while you enjoy Galena, Chestnut Mountain, hiking, wineries, and all the other amenities Jo Daviess County has to offer.

When you stay at Homestead Hideaway, you can simply relax in our cozy rustic cabins, or get out and enjoy everything the area has to offer. At Homestead Hideaway you can expect a tranquil feel and a stress free retreat. The cabins are located in a beautiful rural area where it is perfect to have a cup of coffee or tea in the mornings and enjoy the wildlife. Let our cabins be a rare chance to unplug from the world and help ensure you have a relaxed and secluded stay. We are not able to provide Internet or cable TV due to the location of the cabins. However, do not let that steer you away from the beautiful setting. There are numerous locations in Galena as well as E-Town Coffee in Elizabeth, IL with Internet access.

We have two historic cottages located on the property and three separate rentals. The cabins are located on opposite ends of the property. You can enjoy the seven acres of wooded area by hiking or taking your dog for a walk. Whether you are planning a romantic trip to Galena, a golfing trip, a couple’s getaway, a wine lovers weekend, or skiing at Chestnut Mountain during the winter months, Homestead Hideaway will accommodate to your needs.

We have been renting the cabins for about 2 years now. We have decided to go beyond the brochure advertising and word of mouth and work with VRBO for our rentals. Do not hesitate to ask any questions.

This specific rental is the Seven Sisters Suite which is located on the top two levels of our main cabin. The lower level of this cabin is our Gleneagle Suite which is also listed on VRBO Listing #624157 & our other cabin on the property is listed as the Brimeyer Cabin VRBO Listing #624141

We now have a landline at the cabin. It is for local and emergency(911) calling only. If you wish to call long distance you will need to bring a calling card. However, long distance inbound calling is free.

About Dena Boehm

I purchased this property as a hobby aside from being a member of our US Navy. I have been a member of the US Military for 20+ years. I enjoy nature and being outdoors. I believe this property gives you a feel for what its like to truly relax and get away from the rest of the world.

Dena Boehm purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Dena Boehm chose Elizabeth

I wanted others to experience the beautiful, relaxing, rustic feel these cottages give you. Renting the cabins out would give others the opportunity to enjoy it like I have.

My family (me, husband, 2 kids 7 and 11, dog) really enjoyed the Seven Sisters Suite for 3 nights. Countryside is gorgeous. Pup loved roaming around property with us and exploring. Saw deer every morning! Great cabin. Super clean. Well appointed kitchen. Comfy beds. We'll be back!

Winter Stay

  • 4 of 5

Amazing log cabin nestled in the hills of Elizabeth. We were the only visitors, which we were thankful for, since the lower level is another rentable unit (didn't know this). My favorite thing was the wood burning stove! Plenty of room to spread out and relax. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!

Peaceful, secluded, beautiful cabin

  • 4 of 5

Our family of eight enjoyed our brief stay at the cabin. We woke up Christmas Eve to snowfall which was a wonderful surprise! The cabin, property, and surrounding countryside are beautiful and we appreciated the feeling of seclusion while being less than 20 minutes from Galena. The kitchen was well-equipped overall, the decor was warm and welcoming, and the beds were very comfortable. The hot water supply was limited and a bit spotty. Many of us had to take lukewarm showers one day but the next day the water was fine. That, and the stress of getting the wrong code to open the door on our arrival were our only complaints. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely come back. We rented the smaller cabin three years ago and had a enjoyable, comfortable experience that time as well.

Perfectly Secluded

  • 5 of 5

This cabin looks great in pictures and is even better in person. It has great character and is well maintained. My friends and I loved the seclusion. It felt so great to unplug. Not to mention the cabin had great views both during the day and night. I would highly recommend this place
