  • The Wagner weekend

    "We had a great stay in the home and the general family area was clean and comfortable. Some things I would improve upon would be better quality sheets.....two of the rooms had nylon sheets which are very uncomfortable. Also one bedroom has no window covering which is annoying to wake up to! The kitchen was well equipped with many utensils and dishes but no 13 x 9 pans were available for cooking for the large crowd. We also ran out of paper towels and toilet paper after the first day and when spending that kind of money, I would think we would have plenty of those types of supplies available to us. We also cleaned well, but did not have enough garbage bags. a few other comments...the large table was tilting when we put our elbows on it and the rocking chair was not working easily. I mention these because I do not want to be held responsible for things that were not functioning when we arrived. It's a great spot to gather a large group."

  • Perfect for exploring Chicago!

    "My wife and I stayed here for five days along with another couple from Australia during September. The Accommodations were as advertised, clean, very comfortable and complete. The Old Town neighborhood was very nice, and the El station was within easy walking distance; only a few stops from downtown. We enjoyed a show at nearby second city and also a great dinner in a nearby pub. The owners were very good to work with, and graciously allowed us late check-out since our Amtrak departure was late in the day. We are definitely coming back for further Chicago adventures. Make sure to take the downtown architectural cruise on the Chicago River.... excellent."

  • Perfect choice!

    "If you are looking for a "get-away" offering peace, nature, comfort and country charm, this is your place! Our sisters/cousins weekend was relaxing and affordable. We felt thousands of miles away from the hustle-bustle of regular life -- just two minutes out of "town." Go! Enjoy! Unplug!"

  • 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."
