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."

  • Exceeding Expectations

    "This property is as good as you can get from a rental home. The owners have great pride in their property. You'll find it extremely clean and everything works; which is extremely rare for homes listed on VRBO. Each bedroom provides all of the options that you would expect from a property in this price range. The lower level entertainment center is terrific for all ages. We had our entire family in for the holiday and not a single complaint, just compliment after compliment."

  • 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!!!"
