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 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.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked the Seven Sisters Suite for our baby-moon. We arrived mid-week and no one else was on the property. Our dogs loved our hikes throughout the hillside and down the quiet road. The road leading to the cabin was rarely used and there is no TV/internet access which made it a perfect get-away from life! The cabin was clean and homey. Had almost everything you would need, but no coffee grounds to make morning coffee :( Watching the sunset from behind our cabin was priceless! We spent our days taking trips to nearby cities/tourist attractions and spent our nights snuggled up on the couch watching a movie or reading books in bed. Even in the "off season" for Galena, we found a lot to do by using the provided tourist materials to plan our day trips. By Friday afternoon other visitors had arrived on the property. We rarely heard the downstairs occupants, only if they ran the shower and our cabin was quiet could you hear them. I would love to return to this property in the future!

Cozy, rustic hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend with some extended family. While they are correct that there is limited cell service, we thoroughly enjoyed truly "getting away from it all." The cabin is not fancy, but is well-stocked and has everything you may need. It is tucked into a hollow of sorts, away from the busy roads and overlooks a pasture. The hiking trails by the cabin are not long, but provide a nice walk and beautiful scenery. We'll definitely be back! Cabin owner was very helpful and gave good directions and insights to make our stay as comfortable and simple as possible.

Great secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

The 7 Sisters Cabin was the perfect unplugged location for us. Dena has wonderfully furnished accomodations that are perfect for anyone who wants to still be close enough to the world but able to detach from it. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a similar experience.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. Very nice. 2 separate bedrooms and bathrooms which was very nice to have. Plus a pull out sleeper if needed. The cabin is 20-25 minutes from Galena down some very nice, scenic, twisty, hilly, 35 mph roads. It is definitely a little challenging at night to get to but my Google Maps worked all the way to the cabin. Cell service was iffy at the cabin. Cell service all around Galena is iffy. Honestly, for me, I wish it didn't work at all. The cabin is very nice. Well decorated and stocked. I really have no complaints except the wood for the fire place. I have never seen anything like it. It would not burn at all. I could get kindling to burn just fine but not one of the provided logs. That was disappointing for sure. I could see where the people who stayed before us tried to get a fire to go and had the same problem. Other than that it was a great stay. Definitely the peace and quiet I was looking for.
