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.

I had a few glitches that were rectified in a timely and professional. Beautiful property and quite peaceful. A nice get away! I'd recommend inquiring about each of the cabins ammenities when booking as they do differ a bit (ie. I would recommend the top floor cabin or the stand alone cabin due to creaking floors if you are staying in the first floor cabin; especially if you have pets traveling with you.)

My husband and I spent Christmas here. The cabin was very cozy and it was nice to not have cell service so we could completely unplug for the weekend. We originally booked the lower cabin and the refrigerator was broken so since the upstairs wasn't booked the owners said we could move up there. Upstairs is really beautiful and spacious. The dishwasher was broken and the tv is small but there is a DVD player. The beds were nice and overall we enjoyed our stay very much. Nice secluded spot!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away and unplug this is the place to do it. We had such a great time relaxing at the house and walking around the property with our dog. Galena is also super close if you want to pop out for shopping or a bite to eat. We can't wait to go back with friends and family. Including our furry frieds which was the best part.

Quaint, quiet, secluded, beautiful little cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I made a last minute decision to go away for his birthday and all hotel rooms and B & B's in Galena were booked. We luckily came across this little gem on VRBO! Neither of us are really a fan of crowds, so this was the perfect place! We meandered down winding roads through beautiful rolling hills and scenery, then down a gravel road to end up at Homestead Hideaway! We had the bottom unit of the cabin, with our own parking, patio, and fire pit; away from the guests in the upper unit. (We never even saw the people in the other unit!)

The unit itself had all of the amenities to make us feel welcomed and cozy. We enjoyed grilling our own steaks, building a fire in the wood burner in the living area, watching the stars at night and the steer by day from the little patio, soaking in the claw foot tub, and sipping wine under a comfy throw blanket. We used the moveable fire pit both nights of our stay. Since we did spend some time in the nearby towns of Galena and Elizabeth, we actually did not have an opportunity to hike the trails on the property. We would really like to return someday to do so! We loved it here--truly a home away from home! Kudos to the owners for providing such a wonderful hideaway for all to enjoy!

Romantic, secluded, dog-friendly getaway

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic cabin with all the luxuries of home. Was a little concerned about no wifi or cable but we brought games, books and movies and really enjoyed disconnecting. It's so quiet and peaceful. Do hit up the grocery store before, it's about half an hour away. There's a very nice antique mall in Elizabeth and one one the way to Galena on 20.
