  • Great Weekend at this House

    "Great property that exceeded our expectations. House is very well built and maintained. Beautifully decorated with comfortable beds. 3 season porch and back deck are great areas to play cards and enjoy the peace and quiet. We spent most of the night in the hot tub that was plenty of room for our 6 adults. There is also a really cool fire pit area stocked with wood to burn. Great place. Plan to go back."

  • 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."

  • Sweet Sixteen Celebration

    "I have stayed at numerous homes in the Galena Territory - from weekend getaways with girlfriends and family to Yoga retreats. This home was perfect for bringing 6 teenagers to celebrate my daughters sweet 16th! Three floors with three bathroom and bedrooms was essential for privacy since we had 3 boys and 3 girls. The pool table, numerous games and hot tub were a hit! All of the kids are basketball players - so using the gym at the owner's club was a bonus! Very clean, has many specific items that add personal touches to the home. The overall "feeling" is warm, cozy and loving. I had a last minute emergency and Ginger was extremely helpful and accommodating. Looking forward to multiple future stays as this home is by far, my personal fav!"

  • Family Girls Weekend

    "Myself and 7 other ladies from my family stayed at this home for a weekend of family fun. The house was even better than the pictures and exceeded our expectations. There was plenty of room for us all with the 5 bedrooms and the communal space was perfect. We could make breakfast together in the spacious kitchen and then all sit and eat together at the large dining table. The living room was perfect for late night game playing with more than enough space for us all to be comfortable. Loved the master bed/bath! The screened in porch and hot tub was great and it is nice that it is so secluded. I would recommend to anyone looking to stay out in nature, but close enough to so many attractions. We are already planning a return trip to Galena for next year!"
