  • 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."

  • COMFY HOME FOR FAMILY

    "Thank your for allowing us to stay @ your cabin. It was nice & quiet & you wouldn't know you were only a few blocks from Dixon. It had a cozy feel to it with being so secluded. I would love coming back someday when it was warmer. We did sit out on the porch til it got too cold & had to go inside. We loved the fire pit. It was cold so it was nice. The cabin accommodated everyone in our party. I loved the inside decor - made it feel even more comfortable. For me it was especially nice because I grew up in the Milledgeville; Sterling Rockfalls area. Superb customer service by this owner. He was prompt in answering questions etc., Loved it! Thank you."

  • Just like home

    "We stayed here for a few days while our daughter was visiting a college. The house was so warm and cozy. We had plenty of room to relax and the beds were comfortable. We were even warmly welcomed by the owner with a plate of dessert. We will definitely be staying here on future visits."

  • 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."
