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 Illinois

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.

The Seven Sisters Cabin was beautiful! We loved the remote location and the ability to unplug

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our company with our friends and watching the cows come home in the evening. This is a great location within driving distance of Galena, wineries in Hanover, golfing, and a festival in Stockton. We had plenty of fun activities to choose from, but we would come back in the afternoon just to enjoy time at the cabin. The cabin is well taken care of and feels relaxing. Worth a visit! We will be back again!

Peaceful Serenity, A Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Our family along with the Grandchildren had an amazing stay at this beautiful cottage. Tucked away in the country, this cottage is only 15 minutes from Galena and 15 minutes from Apple Canyon Lake. Lots of wildlife along with a gorgeous view of the countryside. The cottage is fully stocked with everything you would need. Dena, the owner was a joy to work with. There is also a walking trail across from the cottage, it was perfect for our family.

Nice rustic getaway in the country!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice cabin that slept 5 people very comfortably. Other than the air conditioning going out while we were there, it was a great place. When we called about the air, the owner was very prompt in addressing the issue and the air was back on three hours later. Would definitley recommend this cabin.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked the Seven Sisters Suite for our baby-moon. We arrived mid-week and no one else was on the property. Our dogs loved our hikes throughout the hillside and down the quiet road. The road leading to the cabin was rarely used and there is no TV/internet access which made it a perfect get-away from life! The cabin was clean and homey. Had almost everything you would need, but no coffee grounds to make morning coffee :( Watching the sunset from behind our cabin was priceless! We spent our days taking trips to nearby cities/tourist attractions and spent our nights snuggled up on the couch watching a movie or reading books in bed. Even in the "off season" for Galena, we found a lot to do by using the provided tourist materials to plan our day trips. By Friday afternoon other visitors had arrived on the property. We rarely heard the downstairs occupants, only if they ran the shower and our cabin was quiet could you hear them. I would love to return to this property in the future!
