Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
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, and the events in people's lives they are able to share.
Laura purchased this Cabin in 2009
Why Laura chose Downtown
This property has been family owned since 1930. The Edelweiss Cabin and the Aster Cabin were built in 2009 and 2010. The idea was to offer beautiful upscale cabins, on this property so others can enjoy the area and all of the natural beauty has to offer. There are over 400 acres to hike, snow shoe, bird watch, picnic or even fish. Enjoy the water with our paddle boat and canoe. 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. This cabin, the Edelweiss and the Aster Cabin are a perfect pairing for family reunions or other events.
What makes this Cabin unique
WE offer hot tubs all year round, and beautiful scenery all seasons. Our kitchens are fully equipped so you never have to leave to go out to eat unless you want to. We are honoring my mother, Sally von Carlowitz with this endeavor, as it wouldn't have happened unless she convinced us to follow through in providing this magical experience. We all loved the Sound of Music, which is why the cabins are named as they are, and Lorelei is named after myself, Laura, and my sister, Lisa. Unfortunately, my mother passed away suddenly in 2010 before the second cabin was finished. I believe she is watching over us and happy with how everything turned out and really happy at how busy all of this has been keeping me!

Just what we needed
Beautiful cabins, perfect for little fisherman
Lovely cabin in a very picturesque location; my son loved fishing in the little pond behind the cabin where he caught some bass and sunnies.
The cabin is in a beautiful location and so close to downtown amenities. We boated on the pond, enjoyed a bullfrog symphony each night, and enjoyed Dubuque and Galena. We will definitely be back.
A fun and renewing experience.
The four of us had a peaceful and relaxing time. It was everything as advertised. The wildlife was awesome, and the items provided came in handy.
We will be back. Thanks for everything.
Can’t wait to return!
I can’t say enough great things about this cabin! They literally thought of everything to make your stay perfect. From hiking, to morning coffee, to the party barn, this is the perfect place to relax, recharge, enjoy time with friends and family. can’t wait to return.
Romantic and Relaxing Getaway for any Anniversary
This was my wife and I's second stay at the cabin. Perfect place to go to getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and share some quality time with the better half. Hot tub was more than relaxing in the cold weather. Close enough to any stores, if needed anything extra. Only 20 minutes away from shopping in Galena. Owners are only a phone call away and will more than oblige any request. Will stay again in the future.
On site, with over 400 acres to hike, snowshoe, fish in the Catfish Creek and in the newly built ponds. Many beautiful places and overlooks to enjoy picnics and sunsets. Wildlife is abundant, including deer, turkeys, eagles and red tailed hawks. Close to Sundown Mountain for winter skiing, cross country skiing is available on site, or at The Swiss Valley Park. Snow shoeing is available with snow shoes available. Only 8 minutes to the city of Dubuque. Many great places to visit in Dubuque: casino, hockey, theatre, ballet, ice skating, the Mississippi River Museum, river walk, shopping,wineries and much more. The 4th St. elevator is a great experience in the spring, summer and fall. There are many great restaurants such as L'May, and Woodfire. Close to Galena, Illinois., which offers many shops, antiques and great restaurants.
