  • Beautiful property. Top-notch service.

    "Very much enjoyed our stay at The Guesthouse. Well located. Beautiful finishes. Enjoyed having a dedicated garage to park in as well as a gas grill to fire up every night. Oh, and the steam shower! Best part of our stay was the service. Received very clear arrival instructions. We also arranged for Peapod grocery delivery, but didn't arrive on time to receive them. The staff received our groceries plus placed them in the unit for us. After a 6 hour drive with 3 kids, arriving to a fully stocked refrigerator was a small miracle...thank you! Would stay here again without hesitation!"

  • Fabulous stay in Chicago

    "We loved staying in this home for our family vacation in Chicago. We travelled with our 2 adult daughters and we were all comfortable and had space. Teri is the most thoughtful owner of any of the Homeaway homes we stayed in. Her book on things to do, restaurants etc was much appreciated. Coffee and set ups were provided, as well as lots of soaps for bathroom and kitchen. More than enough bath towels were provided. A special treat was the Steam room in the downstairs shower. The home was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. The location couldn't have been better - a quiet residential street an easy walk to restaurants, grocery store Wrigley Field and the "L" - and our favorite - Jeri's ice cream. The "L" is on the Brown Line, which is a short direct ride to Old Town, Goldcoast and The Loop. It was easy to switch lines when necessary to another "L" or the bus. Very convenient for sightseeing. We did not have a car - nor was it needed. However, when we had a friend visit, it was wonderful to use the garage that was included. Definitely recommend the Clark Suite"

  • 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."

  • Perfect 1 bedroom in a wonderful location

    "I stayed here while I was helping my sister the week before her wedding in Chicago. It was the perfect size with the perfect kitchen, and in the best neighborhood in Chicago (Wicker Park). Parking was easy, and it was also close to public transportation. I will definitely stay here again the next time I come to Chicago, and I would definitely recommend it to others."
