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.

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.

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.
Truly a great place to stay. Tucked away in a rustic and scenic setting with plenty of open acreage around, the Homestead Hideaway is a true gem. The cabin successfully marries modern conveniences and amenities with the charm of cabin living. The owner's attention to detail and care for the property are self-evident the moment you walk inside.
Complete with a gravel road that leads up to the cabin, this spot is ideal for anyone who is looking to literally disconnect from the outside world. There is no WiFi or cable/satellite TV - this is a good thing (if you crave entertainment, browse the DVD library or board game collection). While you may have no cell phone reception inside the cabin, the signal tends to return around the driveway.
If you stay in the Seven Sisters Suite, the main floor's outdoor deck is the perfect space for enjoying a sunrise or sunset, and generally just great for quiet reflection. Pros: solitude, a pitch black horizon at night, and a warm/inviting atmosphere. Cons: completely depends on you.
We agree with the other reviews that everything is just as shown in the pictures (#nofilter). We can't say enough good things about the owner who is gracious and understanding. Although our group of three only stayed for just one night, we will definitely be returning. Thanks.
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.
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 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 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.

The property is in a secluded wooded area. Depending on your cell phone service provider, service can be easily accessed or not so easily accessed. We have found that if you have a provider that is not strong in the area usually it will work outside the cabins. We do have a landline at the cabin.
