Property description

The Lorelei Cabins are located in Dubuque, Iowa, near Swiss Valley Park. The beautifully decorated cabins, The Edelweiss and The Aster, and our newest property, The Homestead, are perfect for any getaway. The cabins and the house are secluded in an area with over 400 acres of land, yet close enough to the city of Dubuque to enjoy the restaurants, shopping, and other amenities a city has to offer.

A perfect place for a family gathering, reunion, wedding or a romantic getaway. Each season has it's own unique offerings, with the vibrant leaves in the fall, the snow activities in the winter, and the relaxing tranquility of the ponds and Catfish Creek in the spring and summer.

The sunsets are abundant, and the lights of the city are a beautiful back drop to this area. Viewing the wild life and various scenes of nature are an experience everyone can appreciate. Walking in the woods, having a picnic or bird watching, is also recommended.

Call us and create your own getaway!
No pets allowed.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Laura is originally from Dubuque, Iowa, and Jim is originally from Milwaukee. They have been married 28 years and have three grown 'children'. Both have human service back grounds. Jim is a motivational speaker/educator and owns Creative Education Services as well as Lorelei Cabins with Laura. The best part of owning the cabins has been the great people they get to meet all of the time, and the events in people's lives they are able to share.

Why Dubuque:
This property has been family owned since 1930. The Edelweiss Cabin and the Aster Cabin were built in 2009 and 2010. The idea was to offer beautiful upscale cabins, on this property so others can enjoy the area and all of the natural beauty has to offer. There are over 400 acres to hike, snow shoe, bird watch, picnic or even fish. Enjoy the water with our paddle boat and canoe. My home is a hillside away from the cabin, so we are available to take care of any problems or to help your stay be complete. This cabin, the Edelweiss and the Aster Cabin are a perfect pairing for family reunions or other events.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
WE offer hot tubs all year round, and beautiful scenery all seasons. Our kitchens are fully equipped so you never have to leave to go out to eat unless you want to. We are honoring my mother, Sally von Carlowitz with this endeavor, as it wouldn't have happened unless she convinced us to follow through in providing this magical experience. We all loved the Sound of Music, which is why the cabins are named as they are, and Lorelei is named after myself, Laura, and my sister, Lisa. Unfortunately, my mother passed away suddenly in 2010 before the second cabin was finished. I believe she is watching over us and happy with how everything turned out and really happy at how busy all of this has been keeping me!
