About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 1 Sofa Sleeper -- can accommodate 4 Guests

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.

The Gleneagle Suite is our honeymoon/weekend getaway suite. It is a studio style rental. It is the bottom unit of our cabin with the Seven Sisters Suite. It has a full kitchen, living area, dining area, bathroom and a full size bed in a studio style setting. The sofa in the Living area is a sofa sleeper --so this rental could accommodate 4 guests.

The top two levels of this cabin is our Seven Sisters Suite which is also listed on VRBO #623038 & our other cabin on the property is listed as the Brimeyer Cabin vrbo #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 in is free.

Quiet and peaceful. A wonderful get-away.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after the sun set, relying on our gps to find the cabin. We lost our way when we lost internet coverage. Heed Dena’s advice and print out directions before leaving!

The cabin was clean, quiet and spider-free. We were off the grid and it was lovely! We brought our small dog and she was intrigued by the farm cats strolling along the road and the cows in the field across the way. I think there was maybe one car that drove past while we were there.

We were disappointed that the county health department in Galena doesn’t allow dogs in any outdoor seating food establishments but we adapted.

We enjoyed bird watching from the front porch, b-fast at Otto’s Place and a quiet bike ride along the river trail. We look forward to staying there again!

Very nice accomodations, but not as quiet as we wanted it to be

  • 3 of 5

The host and accomodations were very nice, and were really easy to get to. We enjoyed the remoteness, and our dog also enjoyed the yard. We also loved cooking on the grill in the evening and sitting by a fire. Our only complaint, though, was that the floors to the upstairs cabin were rather thin, as we heard a lot of stomping and noise throughout our actual time inside the cabin. We weren't really able to take an afternoon nap or relax as it was just too noisy upstairs with the family that was there. If we returned to these cabins in the future, we would definitely choose one of the other ones that would allow us more peace and quiet, as we didn't know when booking that this would be an issue.

Privacy, but not too far away

  • 5 of 5

We spent our 30th anniversary here, visiting for the first time. It was sooooo lovely. It was quiet, and the night sky was just AMAZING! Each night as we sat on the porch, deer came up to see what we were up to. We had excellent bird watching while we were here. The call of the coyotes was just beautiful. This is a serene spot which is close to Galena where we enjoyed one of the best rib-eye steaks we have ever eaten. (Log Cabin Steak House), and great shopping. This is a one-of-a-kind place. We will return.

Fantastic cabin for two

  • 5 of 5

The most impressive thing was the complete silence when you are outside. Perfect getaway and very romantic spot. Will definitely come back, just for the fireplace alone.
