  • Comfortable spot in great location!

    "I just stayed at this rental with four friends for a mini-reunion. Everything was as advertised. The beds were very comfortable, the showers were great, and the accommodations met our every need. Location is fabulous. Very close to public transportation, and just steps from an incredible spot for ribs. Loved it!"

  • 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."

  • Great girls weekend

    "5 friends and I stayed here for a girls' weekend. There is a carriage house with two bedrooms and then the main house has 4 bedrooms, plus a couple of futons. I didn't want to stay in the carriage house, because I thought it smelled a bit musty, but my friends who did stay there, had no issues. The house is very comfortable, with many amenities, and is in a beautiful setting! There were wild turkeys one morning at the end of the lane! Very quiet and cozy. The house has all dishes etc available and everything was in working order, except one of the tubs did not drain well during a shower. I would stay here again. There is a pool table and other games out in the carriage house. There is a hot tub, which we didn't use, but it looked like it needed a good cleaning to me. There was also a three-season porch. Some of the furniture was a little worn, but all beds and bedrooms were comfortable."

  • Chris of Cinci

    "I was really pleased with my three day stay. Everything was clean and quite comfortable, and especially warm- it was hovering around negative degrees outside. All amenities for cooking and cleaning were available so I didn't have to alter my diet and eat out while there. The code entry doors were nice, didn't have to fumble around with a key or key card. The house is extremely historic and retains enough old time charm without sacrificing modern convieniences. Parking was decent, wasnt hard to find a spot despite deep snow on the ground. We will be staying there again next we come back to Chicago!"
