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."

  • Beautiful, well appointed house

    "We have stayed at this property 3 times now and absolutely love it. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly think of that you might want. In fact, if there is something (especially in the kitchen) that you want and think it doesn't have, you just haven't found it yet! If it had a Keurig I'd be an even happier camper. Love the spa and the firepit."

  • very flexible, lots of room

    "This property has two buildings, one has 4 bedrooms, the other 2 bedrooms. It offers lots of flexibility for groups/families. A large lounging area is near kitchen on main floor in bigger building. The bottom floor has a large TV area with substantial seating. The other building has a large well-equiped gaming area. The grounds have swing set, small pond, burn pit, and hot tub area. However the hot tub would not heat which was disappointing as our group would have enjoyed it. All-in-all, we would rent this property again."
