  • 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."

  • Perfect for an executive family relocating.

    "Our family of 4 was relocating to the Chicago area and we needed a place that was fully furnished and could accommodate us while we house hunted. The listing description is accurate. The furnishings are beautiful and the space is professionally decorated. This is, by far, the most well equipped kitchen I have ever seen in a rental! It was a perfect fit for us and exceeded our expectations. The proximity to everything is great. Walking distance to the train station, library, post office, shopping, and dining. The owners are wonderful!! They were in touch with me as soon as I contacted them. They were helpful and provided lots of information before and during our stay. We moved in the end of December and enjoyed it so much we stayed until the middle of April. If you are looking for an upscale rental in a great community this place is for you. Thank you for a great stay!"

  • AWESOME AND EXCEPTIONAL

    "As most of the reviews have stated, this is an exceptional apartment and the views are absolutely amazing. The staff could not have been any better - friendly, courteous, and makes you feel like you are "home". The location is just far enough away from "the action" to be quiet but close enough to walk to most Chicago attractions. My daughter and friend needed a cab and asked one of the doormen - within 20 seconds, he had one at the front door for them! The apartment was clean, attractive and exactly as advertised! The kitchen had all the "gadgets" and was well-stocked for cooking and dining, although we did neither with so many restaurants to experience in Chicago! Having the washer/dryer in the unit was a big time-saver and convenience. For the most part, the building is quiet - there are a lot of dogs but most are "trained" and you only know they are there when you ride the elevator with them - I think I only heard one bark once and that was the excitement of getting to go outside to the adjacent park! We also appreciated being able to stay in a "green" building. I would definitely make this my first choice on my next trip back to Chicago! You will not be disappointed!"

  • Wonderful getaway cabin!

    "We spent 3 nights at Doc's Lakeside Cabin in August, for our 44th wedding anniversary. It is a wonderful place! The cabin is beautifully decorated and has a very peaceful and warm feel. The setting is stellar! Nestled into the trees right on a lovely lake. It is very secluded and private. We met Tanya, the owner, when we arrived and she is a very warm, friendly and caring lady. We highly recommend this place for a private and peaceful getaway!"
