  • Perfect hotel alternative

    "This property is perfect for a family or group of women such as ourselves who appreciate a larger space with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen. The property was clean, the photos were accurate, and the owner was very helpful. It is in a perfect location so that you can walk everywhere in the downtown area and do not require a car. There is a supermarket and a Starbucks downstairs and there are restaurants on every corner. This property was perfect for our needs and I would recommend it."

  • Perfect location

    "This was an excellent location (extremely central, practically across the street from Grant Park) and less expensive than the hotels in the area. It's not a luxury accommodation but a small, clean, quiet studio apartment, perfect for 1 or 2 people visiting for a week of Chicago sightseeing. All trains, including the blue line from O'Hare, come within walking distance of this location. For breakfast in the neighborhood, there's a French pastry place and Wildberry Cafe, and there's a Target store nearby for food and supplies."

  • 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."

  • The best getaway ever

    "Thank you so much to the Mountain family for sharing your perfect retreat! The cabin lacks nothing and the scenery in unrivaled! The forest, the stream, the pond, the trails - all are wonderful and I thank you for letting me share in their beauty. I had the best time in my life in your cabin. Thank you. Anna"
