All it takes is a three-and-a-half-hour drive from Chicago and you'll feel like you've been transported to a different century in this 1850s-era cabin in Bellevue, Iowa, which offers an extraordinary (and historical) escape from the bustle of city life. The cabin itself was constructed with reclaimed lumber from an 1800s cabin, and the 20-acre property—swathed with native grasses, blooming prairie flowers and fish-filled ponds—looks like something straight out of a Laura Ingalls Wilder book. Whether you prefer to fish, pick wildflowers or even take a guided pizza-making class using the wood-fired oven onsite, you're sure to find something to love about this gorgeous rental.
