"Just spent a lovely weekend at this spectacular home! I felt as though I'd been transported back in time and truly got a taste of of a bygone era (without forsaking modern conveniences). The large kitchen with two ovens and two dishwashers was perfect for cooking and eating in with our large extended family.
Multiple bedrooms and living areas offered plenty of space for our party. The entire house was immaculate. Nice furniture and a well appointed kitchen with plenty of dishes and cookware easily accommodated our group.
The whole family enjoyed the patio and yard overlooking the river. I especially enjoyed the beautiful walking trail along the river in Sterling that you can access just a few minutes walk from the house.
I highly recommend and would definitely return!"

Great Property - Great location, building, unit and amenities!!
"The pictures were great but they didn't do the unit justice. The living room, dining room and kitchen are spacious. The bedroom is very large with a very comfy bed and bedding. The bedroom bathroom is a bit small but very nice. It is very hard to tell from pictures but the hot tub is right off the master bedroom and in a very spacious all wood paneled room with the bathroom right off of it with a shower with good water pressure. The neighborhood was safe and quiet with parking not a problem. Taylor Street offers a variety of dining options within walking distance - a very nice street to stroll down. The building was very quiet. Couldn't ask more from the owners - very responsive, the check-in and check-out couldn't have been easier. Am coming back in September and wanted to stay again but unfortunately it is booked. This will be my preferred vacation rental when visiting Chicago from now on!! Couldn't give it a higher recommendation."

"Each summer, I get away for a weekend with my adult daughters and thought Galena would be fun this year. They knew nothing about the area and I had not been here in 20 years. We were all pleasantly surprised! It's so beautiful in the territory. The condo was easy to find and close to the owner's club and East Course where we played foot golf (we're not golfers). We had an issue with the smoke detector chirping and the owners came, replaced the battery and wanted to give us a box of chocolates for our inconvenience! That was not an inconvenience and we were grateful for the prompt attention as that would have been hard to sleep through. King bed in master bedroom. Master bath was huge. Futon outside the master bedroom was comfortable for my daughter. Kitchen was fully stocked and clean. Bathrooms were clean and had little bottles of shampoo and toothpaste. Upon our arrival, small bottles of wine and chocolates were on the coffee table. Back deck had a beautiful view and late afternoon you can see the hot air balloons lift. Paisanos (in the main hotel building) had awesome pizza. Durty Girts in town had great food and milk shakes. Entertainment in the hotel bar was very good. We enjoyed the music and watching the "fashion show" that came out of a wedding. Brunch in the hotel on Sunday was awesome too! Great food and any drink is included. Will definitely come back again!"

"Had a fantastic time in Chicago, the check-in was perfect thanks again for accommodating!
This room was one of the larger sizes in the building, noticed on the floor plan on the back of the door. It was very clean and well stocked on arrival.
The building staff were great, had a business hiccup during my stay and all resources were onsite to help get it resolved quickly.
Drumbar on the roof is worth spending some time, very good bartenders.
Overall a very smooth process beginning to end, my first VRBO. I would stay here again.
