Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Elizabeth - Homestead Hideaway 7 Sister

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 Illinois

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.

Secluded Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Very nice cabin in a secluded location. Easy access to Galena and surrounding area. Nice to wake up to cows in the pasture. Please note that there is another rented cottage attached to this one. They do have separate entrances and are fairly private.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained and beautiful. Very relaxing. We had a great time. We were uncertain how it would be with two little kids, but it was ideal!

The place to go if you are looking for remote, relaxing seclusion.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and looked great. The surrounding property was well maintained with neat outbuildings which made for great photographs. The only thing I would suggest, even though this is the place to unplug and go off grid, is to have wifi available as communication with other family was tough unless they called the cabin phone. You will not be able to use your phone at all. Will definitely stay again.

We would recommend this place to anyone seeking a relaxing getaway. Very peaceful and homey.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. If you are seeking seclusion, then everything you need is right there. Yet, if you wanted to have some fun..it won't take long to get to that too. We enjoyed the walking paths and even just the gravel road for taking in nature. We also enjoyed the deck to sit and visit have a peaceful time out there as well. Everything was clean and comfortable. Was nice to have some dishes too to eat some meals right there. Definitely just what we needed.

Property was cute and served our purpose of a get away.

  • 3 of 5

Cell phone reception is non-existent inside so it's difficult to use phone if you need to have it. We had a doctor on call so that was a problem. Also since property is not in territory we had no swimming privileges which we would have needed if couldn't golf. Night sky was beautiful outside unit. Bring bath soap because it wasn't there. Downstairs shower is really slippery. We all used that one because second floor doesn't have one.
