Perfect house for a weekend ski trip!
"I stayed at the "Retreat House' with a group of 11 people for a weekend ski trip at Chestnut Mountain. The house was perfect for a large group with plenty of bedrooms, a large kitchen, a hot tub, pool table, and gambling room. The house was spacious, cozy, and accommodating and we will definitely be returning next year. The owner's were gracious enough to extend our check-out time at no cost. My only complaint is that it snowed the night before arriving and we had to shovel the driveway and around the hot tub ourselves. This was a minor price to pay for a great weekend getaway!"

"We stayed July 2014 for a family gathering of 4 adults and 4 grandkids. It was a great home, plenty of room to spread out. The home was clean, had plenty of supplies and towels for us all. My son liked the jetted master bathtub too."

"This was our first time to Galena and we just fell in love with it. The townhome was really lovely. Homey and inviting. Everything we needed was provided. The location was perfect as well. We were just a short walk to the subarea pool and a short drive to the owner's club complex and general store. We were also a short walk from the area where the hot air balloon festival was. We will definitely be staying with Art and Kathy again."

"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."
