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

This is a great get away for families without young childern. Adult activities like bags, vb, and the hot tub sooth the adult traveler, but there isn't really anything for little children to do. What this resort is missing is a pool.

I cannot say enough good things about this place. The cabins are immaculately clean, cozy and extremely comfortable. The rate was amazing for the amenities. The owners were friendly and nice, while still giving guests more than enough privacy. I would highly recommend the hideaway for romantic getaways.
