Dubuque cabin 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.

              • The scenery is breathtaking. We have two ponds for fishing and other water activities, and we use the ponds for ice skating in the winter. We are close to Dubuque, but the feel is country living at it's best. Most people come to the cabins, and they do not want to leave to go eat or do anything but relax, or do outside activities. Great for reunions, family gatherings, weddings, or any other opportunity to get away! We have lots of space, and a party barn, with more games and areas to explore. We also have fire pits, for a bon fire!...moreless

                  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.

                  Why Dubuque:
                  This property has been family owned since 1940. The Edelweiss cabin has just recently been built as a way to share the beautiful land with the hiking trails, and communing with nature. 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. Please ask us about our other property available to rent as well.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  We enjoy all of the amenities the cabin has. We hike, watch the sunsets, snowshoe, look at the stars while in our own hot tub. This property is very close to nature and very private, yet not isolated. We have ponds and the creek, and beautiful landscapes.
