  • 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."

  • Friends weekend

    "I have actually rented out this place a few times. I have come up with groups of friends. It so lovely to wake up and see the sunrise over the rolling hills and the sunset in the evening. The house is so comfortable and warm. There is plenty of acreage out back to take a morning stroll. Or cross country ski if there snow. It's also not too far of a drive to Chestnut mountain if you're looking to do a little down hill skiing as well. If you have a bike the territory is fun to ride in the rolling hills. Downtown is just a scenic drive away. I highly recommend this property with it's fireplace,full kitchen and beautiful deck to enjoy time relaxing outside. I love the territory as there aren't many lights on at night so you can view the amazing starscape. Coming from Chicago, this is something I look forward to most! This house has everything you need and the owners are great to work with!"

  • KC410

    "We stayed in this charming home for 5 days and found it to be as good as earlier ratings said it is. Galena is an interesting and fun place to visit with lots to do from historical venues to quaint shops to good restaurants. The best part, though, was the cabin itself. There were two couples in our party and the configuration of the unit maximized privacy and gave everyone plenty of space to spread out. It was cozy at the same time - no mean feat. A+ Rentals were great agents, responsive to our inquiries and to a request for assistance. All 4 of us agree that it was a great place to stay in the fall (beautiful color) and would be a great place in the summer with all of the amenities available in The Galena Territory and Eagle Ridge. We plan to return."
