  • Perfect mom's escape!

    "The Cozy Cottage was a perfect choice for our escape. It was just what we were looking for. It was close enough to Peoria for a nice dinner out, and perfectly tucked away in the woods that we felt like we were miles away from everything. The Cottage was very cozy and we enjoyed all the 'treasures' placed around the house. We booked on very short notice and Sal and Buzz were exceptionally considerate and welcoming. After a very stressful holiday season, this was exactly what us two stressed out moms needed. It was a perfect place to disconnect and relax. Thank you for sharing your home with us. There have been thoughts of bringing the husbands and kids back next year, but we may need to keep this one all to ourselves!"

  • 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 chicago urban living

    "We just spent a week at this property and absolutely loved it - great location off quite residential street - two minute walk to roscoe street with all the adorable shops - train stop just a little further - we cooked several meals in the kitchen and the furnishings were way better than most homeaway rentals - great blender - high quality pots and pans - very highly recommended"
