Recent Galena reviews

  • 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."

  • "OUR Vacation House" - That's what the kids call it!

    "Our family of four has really enjoyed staying at this lovely property twice now, and there will be more visits in the future especially since the kids have declared it "Our Vacation House". :) What can't be beat is the second level of the home with the clean, bright and open kitchen and living room area which opens to the huge deck and spacious hot tub. There are windows all around the main level bringing in the nature you seek. The wood burning fireplace can be viewed from the kitchen while cooking, and while the kids (12 and 10) are enjoying board games or crafts at the huge counter height table in the dining room. We ski during the day, then hot tub, make a nice dinner and cozy up by the fire for a family movie. Perfect get away! From the hot tub, the stars are beautiful at night and we could hear the owls in the distance. Be aware that there is no bathroom on the main floor if going up and down stairs bothers you, but there is a private master bath downstairs. The first level is a little dark, where the bedrooms are, which is fine by me because that is where I sleep. Mary is great to work with and mailed my favorite bathing suit back to me in a flash, no complaints or heavy sighs! Thank you Mary, for sharing your beautiful home with us!"

  • Great girls getaway!

    "My girlfriends and I rented this place for my birthday celebration a few weeks ago. It was perfect for the 6 of us. Location is ideal, and the home was nicely maintained. The owner (Ed) went above and beyond to make sure we had details about Galena, where to go and what to see. He was very quick to answer all our questions and made sure that we had a memorable experience. He also included access to the owner's club where we could use the pools etc in his fee. He also doesn't charge an extra cleaning fee, making this one of the most affordable units around. This unit is at the end of the street, so it's very quiet and peaceful. The back yard was amazing!!!"
