7/11/14: What a great place!!! My wife and myself never go to a place without looking at the reviews. For some reason we looked at the web pages and booked the room with out looking at reviews. That must have been due to all the effort and great job on the web page. We felt if they put that much... More

We came to Hickory Hideaway on the recommendation of another business in a nearby town. We could not have been more pleased that we came here. Cabin is clean and attractively decorated. Location is pastoral and quiet, and two small town are nearby for dinning and grocery necessities. Our cabin had a micro wave, fridge and sink for food prep.... More

No cable or satellite but if your going to watch TV they do have wifi, as well as did and vhs cassette players in the room. Plus movies to barrow... More

The owners, George and Sherry were very friendly and helpful. The luxury cabin was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Our romantic stay was highly enhanced by the comfy king size bed, a cozy fireplace and a relaxing whirlpool tub for two.

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful, relaxing weekend at Hickory Hideaway. We were looking for a "little cabin in the woods" to take a break from our crazy lives that offered all the amenities you'd want to relax, and we were 100% satisfied. Hot tub = check! Warm fireplace = check! Comfortable accomodations and clean = double... More

Great room. Owners were very outgoing and nice. Close to a fee gas stations. Check out mt.carroll while you're here... Cool haunted house and nice restaurant. Great hot tub. Very private also. It's a little pricier than the surrounding places but definitely worth the money. I would come back again for sure

The owners were very friendly and make us feel comfortable on their property. We've been to many cabins in the midwest and these were among the top of the list. We will definately be back. Nice little winery a bit down the road was quite fun for even those like myself who don't drink wine. It was a nice change... More

We stayed for four nights and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect to visit Galena and the surrounding area. The owners are so helpful...any issues were quickly taken care of without hesitation! It's a peaceful setting in the woods and the grounds are maintained. I was traveling with a special needs child and the owners paid careful attention... More
