Nestled a mere 2 miles from Main St. and surrounded by 120 acres of pasture and field, are five rustic, original 1800s log cabins updated with luxurious amenities such as double whirlpool tubs, wood burning fireplaces, satellite tv, central heat/ac, continental breakfast and more. Situated on the Galena IL boyhood estate of Civil War General Augustus Chetlain, this quiet, pastoral country setting is the ideal antidote for the stress of city living. The perfect "get away from it all" location without having to travel for conveniences. We allow tent camping and you can bring your own grill. Enjoy a campfire in the fire pit or arrange for a HUGE bonfire while you're here (weather permitting). Family owned and operated with many recent upgrades. New sofas, new mattresses, etc. Pet Friendly, too!! All pets welcome except elephants and giraffes (they won't fit)!!

This trip was perfect for our anniversary weekend. This was exactly what we wanted and more than we had expected. We stayed in the Rawlins cabin, and it was rustic with a bit of modern flair. We had a mini fridge and microwave and a couple of wine glasses and cork screw to go with. Yes, the bathroom was smaller and we had to go upstairs to use it, but that was just fine to get the ambience we wanted. The fireplace worked well, and the HVAC kept us warm and toasty at night. The owner brought us wood right away when we needed it. Location is outstanding, less than a ten minute drive to downtown Galena. Overall highly recommend for a cozy, rustic getaway that’s still close to the downtown area for a weekend away.

My girlfriend and I have now stayed at the log cabins 3 times. And we love it! It's quaint, it's rustic, it's romantic, it's clean and it's an overall great place. Our most recent visit was last week and I called last minute to see of there was an availability. Tammy assured us she'd have a cabin ready for us upon arrival later that day. After an afternoon of hiking around Galena, the whirlpool in the cabin was a welcome respite to our weary bones. We also enjoyed a fire outside as the owner was nice enough to have some firewood out for us. The weather was perfect and the full moon and the stars in the sky only made the evening all the better. As we checked out mid-day on Sunday, Tammy recommendation to visit Chestnut Mountain was awesome! The Augustus Chetlain Log Cabins in one of our favorite places to visit and we look forward to many more visits in the future. Thanks again to Tammy for welcoming us and with great service! ~Jason & Becky

We are just back from a lovely weekend staying at Tammy’s Log Cabins in Galena. We stayed in the Smith cabin and made the most of staying on the property to enjoy its peacefulness. The cabin had great amenities and thoughtful attention to detail. The super comfy bed made for a great nights sleep too! Each cabin has its own history and the gardens of the property are beautiful. Thanks Tammy! We’ll be back :)

Fell in love with the cabin the moment we walked in. "I could live here". We stayed in and ordered delivery both nights (instead of dining in Galena) - that's how much we enjoyed the cabin and fireplace.

We stayed two nights. Enjoyed the fireplace one night and the large whirlpool tub with a view the second. Breakfast was fresh muffins and juice with coffee and maker in the cabin. The cabin was remarkably clean and everything worked. It is close to town - five minutes from being parked on Main St. - but looks out over rolling pasture. We were delighted with our choice.
