  • Friends weekend

    "I have actually rented out this place a few times. I have come up with groups of friends. It so lovely to wake up and see the sunrise over the rolling hills and the sunset in the evening. The house is so comfortable and warm. There is plenty of acreage out back to take a morning stroll. Or cross country ski if there snow. It's also not too far of a drive to Chestnut mountain if you're looking to do a little down hill skiing as well. If you have a bike the territory is fun to ride in the rolling hills. Downtown is just a scenic drive away. I highly recommend this property with it's fireplace,full kitchen and beautiful deck to enjoy time relaxing outside. I love the territory as there aren't many lights on at night so you can view the amazing starscape. Coming from Chicago, this is something I look forward to most! This house has everything you need and the owners are great to work with!"

  • Great girls getaway!

    "My girlfriends and I rented this place for my birthday celebration a few weeks ago. It was perfect for the 6 of us. Location is ideal, and the home was nicely maintained. The owner (Ed) went above and beyond to make sure we had details about Galena, where to go and what to see. He was very quick to answer all our questions and made sure that we had a memorable experience. He also included access to the owner's club where we could use the pools etc in his fee. He also doesn't charge an extra cleaning fee, making this one of the most affordable units around. This unit is at the end of the street, so it's very quiet and peaceful. The back yard was amazing!!!"

  • Great house to rent near metro

    "We stayed at the yellow cottage for a week at the end of March. It was perfect for a family with school aged children. We could walk to the "L" and spend all day in Chicago and then come home and be able to cook a sit down dinner and relax. The area was very safe and walkable. It was also quiet at night. The weather was cool but we did see families outside in the late afternoon. The house was clean and equipped with everything we could think of. Groceries were within walking distance. we parked our car in the garage after we unpacked and did not back it out until we checked out of the house."
