  • A place that has it all!

    "If you are looking for a house that has a fire place, hot tub and plenty of space but is also conveniently located in Galena Territory - you got it! It is our third time in this house and we wouldn't go anywhere else. It is not a luxurious stay so if you like everything shiny and new - look further. We enjoy everything that the house has to offer - the spacious and open dining-living room-kitchen with the spectacular views and fireplace, the hot tub on the wrap around deck, and the 3 bedrooms on the first level that have everything you need - extra bedding, pillows... There are 8 passes for the Owners club where you can find fitness, swimming pool and entertainment like table tennis, pool tables, games - everyone can find something to do. It is a 10 minute walk to the Owner's club. If you like skiing like us you can go to Chestnut Mountain Resort. We are nature lovers and "Above it All" is giving us exactly what we like and what we look for when we go on a vacation. Every time we have to go home I find myself thinking: "I wish we could stay another day." The owners are very nice and they always give us a discount coupon that we can use for our next stay. Thank you!"

  • Perfect for us!

    "We spent a week here this July and it was perfect for our little family! The house was clean, well maintained and equipped with everything we needed. We slept great on vacation which is unusual - the house was dark and quiet at night. The boathouse is awesome! It will be hard to go on a lake vacation without one again! Lake Sara is beautiful. Looking at the fabulous houses kept us totally entertained. Kids enjoyed jumping off the dock, tubing and fishing. Hope Lake Sara will get another restaurant when Abigail's closes this season. That is sad :( we loved the house and the lake and we'll be back!!"

  • Thanksgiving weekend 2014

    "Beautiful property, great location. Our family had a lot of fun at the cabin. We had the Christmas tree lights on the entire weekend! Enjoyed 2 great sunsets. Will definitely come back during summer months to enjoy the deck down by the lake."

  • 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."
