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 Elizabeth

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.

Idyllic

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your property with us, if I were the owner we would want to live here and never leave. Merely driving the road to it, then spotting this awesome cabin is a real joy. It is located in the most marvelous peaceful valley in Illinois (if not further!). Don't ever let the county pave that road! -we loved sitting on the balcony watching the wildlife -rarely a car goes by. A hummingbird stopped by several times perhaps attracted by the lilac scent wafting in the breeze.

And inside the cabin is clean and organized. We had everything we could possibly need in the way of kitchen utensils. The clothes rack in the upstairs bathroom is a bonus for hanging clothes, and the tin tub is a real treat for sore muscles.

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

OMG we had an absolutely fabulous time staying in this hidden gem. The lack of internet was actually wonderful and we were able to have old fashion phone free conversations. Had the feeling of seclusion but still close enough to civilization. Roasted marshmallows over the fire table and ate every meal outside. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Away from it all,literally!!!

  • 5 of 5

For once I am so glad I did not read all the details of this amazing cabin. All I was looking for was a nice place that pets where allowed on very short notice!! Well to my surprise it had no WiFi, off the grid!! And we loved it!! We sat and talked, listened to the sounds of the day and night on the enclosed porch. I have two huskies and the temp was perfect for them that we just left the back door open most of the day so they can sit on the couch!! My husband and girls and I watched cartoons and movies due to rain and we even got in some hiking at Apple Canyon lake state park. I could not have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable Mother’s Day weekend!!! Thank you so much!!

My family (me, husband, 2 kids 7 and 11, dog) really enjoyed the Seven Sisters Suite for 3 nights. Countryside is gorgeous. Pup loved roaming around property with us and exploring. Saw deer every morning! Great cabin. Super clean. Well appointed kitchen. Comfy beds. We'll be back!
