  • Great Large family getaway

    "I booked this place for an extended family getaway for a long weekend. Age 70 to just 1 year (brought a pack and play for the baby). Everyone found something to do. Fishing, hiking, biking, swimming, game room, horseback riding, kayak, by the way all of this was done right in the community the house is at. Plus of course heading into downtown Galena for shopping...only a 15 to 20 minute drive. If you plan on coming I would recommend making reservations at the stable for riding and the kayaks as soon as you get there. They can book up fast especially on Sat/Sun. I would only bring bikes if those who are riding are old enough to be comfortable on the road (no sidewalks) and can handle HILLS! Although there is a nice paved trail up the way it is extremely hilly, we are talking going down at 25 mph and having to walk the bike partway up the hills. That being said there were several of us adults and some pre-teen and teenagers who rode the bikes to the pool. Totally doable, only about 1.5 mi ride to the pool and game room, (bring a bike lock), but again extremely hilly and you are sharing the road with cars. Now to the house, just as it is pictured! The only thing missing out the pictures is the hill that makes up the driveway! Mavis was extremely helpful with questions prior to booking and never had a problem there. The kitchen has plenty of pots/pans, even a Keurig. No need to bring much. I just brought my favorite chopping knife. There is a Piggly Wiggly grocery store about 5 minutes past downtown Galena. We actually only ate out for a few lunches, we had all our dinners in the house...utilized the grill often. (Grill is not perfect, the shelf is WOBBLY, but will do.) I would totally recommend this place to a large family. Lots of fun in the area."

  • Parents of Chicago resident

    "This was a lovely unit! We were in town visiting relatives and absolutely loved the unit and the location. Were within walking distance of everything we needed, including our son. Very comfortable unit (although they could use a new sofa. The one in the unit has seen better days), very clean and all modernized. Great kitchen appliances, very functional. Suggested to the owner that they may want to stock the fridge with water - Chicago tap water leaves a bit to be desired, but that is not the fault of the unit owners. All in all, I would not hesitate to recommend this unit, in fact I already have! Gave a card to my son's in-laws for when they next visit Chicago!"

  • Beautiful Location and Amenities

    "Our family enjoyed Eagle's Nest this weekend as we held our 28th annual family gathering. It's a gorgeous facility with plenty of amenities for family gatherings, business gatherings, or a relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We really enjoyed the beautiful setting but wished we had more time to spend taking in all the events Galena has to offer as well as the special provisions at Eagle's Nest. The pre-arrangements were well communicated and everything was as stated in the rental offering. Taking advantage of the weekend, we had 24 people enjoy family members ranging in age from <1 year old to our family matriarch who'd rather not allow me to state her age. We enjoyed the recreational provisions, the setting, nature walks, and time away in the Galena area. Hopefully our family will be able to enjoy Eagle's Nest in the future."

    "I believe we were in the best area in Chicago. Parking was convenient and inexpensive. Restaurants ( best in Chicago ) all within walking distance. The apartment was roomy and very clean. The kitchen was great and we made breakfast every morning. I hope to stay again on our next trip to Chicago."
