  • Can't wait to do it again

    "Clean,organized with every amenity you will want. Thank you for wifi, which was unexpected. A beautiful well maintained home that feels at home the minute you enter. We look forward to returning during golf season. Thank you for sharing with us. Highly recommended. Kent and Barbara Duffy"

  • Nice location

    "Their were a lot of pluses included in this spacious home. If you are looking for a private place for a group of twelve or more this is the place to go. Six bedrooms with private bath. Nice dining area with kitchen. No crockpot and oven was not clean otherwise you should have what you need. Beds were very comfortable and if you need more towels you had use of washer and dryer. I recommend the owners supply pump soap in kitchen for guest.Bar soap while preparing meals not very sanitary. We had planned to go into Galena for dinner out but we enjoyed the property and the lovely dining/kitchen area so much we decided to stay and use the grill and outdoor kitchen area."

  • We have made this place our Yearly Tradition!

    "We’ve stayed here a number of times for different occasions, starting from New Years eve party, family country Thanksgiving, summer vacation with kids, to romantic getaways of just two of us. Every single time we had great time of relaxation and pleasure of being separated from crazy schedule at home. We have enjoyed open space of second floor: kitchen, dining and living, works just great, all the family members enjoying and joined by the same space, every single time it brought in a” Christmas like” memories… laughter’s, food preparations, kids roaming around! On the other hand, secluded and cozy bedrooms of the 1st floor are good destination to retire if needed. The view from wrap around deck is simply priceless, several miles of poetic landscape puts your mind at deep ease. We have especially enjoyed spacious hot tub , situated under open sky. (not like at the most of other cabins, squeezed under some dungy porch) Close proximity to indoor and outdoor swimming pool and other clubhouse facilities, provide nice reason to take a walk outside. That location is also a great point for ski trip or quick hop up’s to Galena down town. I could probably write many pages about wonderful time we have had there, but there is a one more important aspect of renting this place: easy going, non invasive and understanding owners who always went along with our extra requests. I strongly recommend to stay at that charming, in its own very special way, place and to forget about the rest of the world! Peter & Dorothy U. Burr Ridge, IL"

  • Great place for family gathering

    "We recently rented the Birdsnest for a family gathering to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It worked out beautifully. First of all the bedrooms are on three different levels so there's plenty of separation for all. In addition the home is very well equipped and nicely decorated. If you're headed to Galena for a visit, you won't find nicer accommodations. And the owner, Steve, is great to work with."
