Great family gathering facility
"We have just returned from a fun weekend family reunion, with children from 4 years old to senior family members. This property is well suited for this type of gathering, particularly having a full bathroom for each bedroom. This avoided bathroom wars!! The design of the property, the quality of the furnishings, and the equipping of the kitchen made it very easy for all to have a great time and not need to leave the facility. The location provided many options for family members, from hiking and running trails, access to many golf courses, the owner's club facilities and pools, and much more. The owners were great to deal with, and answered all of our questions, therefore, we fully recommend this property."

"We had a great weekend in Galena at this house. The living room and kitchen/dining room are open and great areas. All of the bedrooms had very comfortable beds. The hot tub is easily accessed from the dining room. We have rented several homes in Eagle Ridge and this is one of our favorites. The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with."

"This was a perfect home for our weekend gathering of three brothers and their wives -- so perfect that we wished we had booked it for longer. Everything about it is attractive, clean & inviting -- exactly as the pictures show. The only difference I noted between the photos and the reality is that in the summer, with the lush greenery of the woods behind the house, it is even prettier than the pictures. Our favorite room was the screened in porch -- nice furniture - pretty colors - and all comfortable. There has been much attention to detail in this home, with many little extras to make you comfortable. For us it was the extra pillows.
For my husband's brothers & their wives renting a home to vacation in was a new experience. They were used to hotels when traveling. So, when we were making plans I suggested it would be fun to eat dinner at home one night. There were no takers. After seeing the great setup for grilling and the relaxed atmosphere for dining and conversation they were sorry. Live and Learn.
We highly recommend this home."

"Dear Bill and Sue,
We have just returned from our third annual Sister-Friend gathering at the Retreat House. As in the past all that is offered meets our needs perfectly for relaxing and reconnecting. The location is convenient for walking (albeit is hilly), canoeing, swimming, shopping, dining, and this year, a Pontoon boat ride. All of the bedrooms are clean & spacious and having a bedroom on the main floor appreciated by those challenged to climb stairs. Our coffee on the porch began as early at 6:30 and often lasted several hours as the peaceful view draws us to stay there late into the morning. The comfy beds always receive compliments (with searches for tags to know where to purchase for our own homes) and we appreciate the high quality and abundance of bath linens and variety of kitchen equipment and utensils. Our best hope is that the love and positive energy we experience during our time at the Retreat House will welcome others who follow our stay. We have reserved our dates for 2016 anticipating another wonderful time in Galena.
Nine Grateful Sister Friends"
