"Myself and 8 friends all stayed at Dan's cabin for the weekend and had a GREAT time. The cabin is beautiful, clean and has all of the amenities for a great stay. It's secluded and perfect for getting away from the noise and hassle of Chicago! We ventured out to Galena on Saturday for their Oktoberfest and it was only a 25 minute trip through the rolling country side. Dan has lots of board games, a fire pit (with all of the wood you could possibly need!) and a zip line to keep you entertained for your entire stay! All of the beds were comfortable and there was more than enough seating for meals! The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking. Scales Mound is about 10-15 minutes away and had a great little grocery store with an excellent meat counter. The only downside was that the wifi was a bit weak - but that was probably for the better! Dan was a great host and promptly responded to any and all inquiries - will definitely consider staying again!"

"We were back on a familiar street where we once owned an apartment. The location is perfect for transportation, Chicago downtown and beach activities. Only problem was a mishap with owner's cleaning company when the cleaner did not show up. Substitute cleaner was very efficient and conscientious and we only asked that the essentials be taken care of. We couldn't get into apartment until 18:30. Ashley told us our cleaning fee would be returned. Towels were limited and would suggest beach towels on hand in summer and perhaps a parasol. Air conditioners too loud to sleep with. Comfortable apartment and felt quite at home in the apartment. We had a lovely stay despite initial problem. Would recommend Apartment 2. Neighborhood changing. We had one last chance to enjoy Big Bowl, Corner Bakery, DaLobster (formerly Ashkenaz Deli). They all closed the week we were there -- buildings being converted to shopping."

"my husband and I & our 3 small dogs enjoyed our stay at this cozy cottage. It's challenging to find places to stay when traveling with our furry family. The house was well kept and clean and the location is a quick 10 min scenic drive into Galena. we also enjoyed the walking path near to the cottage. Will be back! Thank you !"

"My family stayed at this lovely 3 bedroom flat around the Holiday Season. The owners were very gracious and even allowed us to stay another night due to an emergency. The apartment was clean and very accommodating for our family which included a 1 yr old. The location was perfect and we were within walking distance to restaurants, church, and the train. I would highly recommend this home."
