Recent Illinois property reviews

  • 50s crowd

    "When I looked for a place to gather to celebrate a "reunion," I found the perfect place. Our "home away from home" for a few days was indeed that - a HOME. Accommodations were excellent and met all of our needs. The owner was very helpful, too."

  • Excellent - clean and quiet!

    "Everything was just as advertised, and the unit is even bigger than the pictures suggest. It's an easy 7-8 minute walk to the Blue Line. Highly recommended to anyone looking to not pay Downtown prices but still have easy access to the city."

  • A beautiful home that is well designed and nicely decorated

    "Our family rented this very nice home in the Galena Territories for a 3 day stay. We all wish we could have stayed longer. The house is beautiful, is extremely well maintained and has a very functional lay out for a family of 5 or 6. The bedrooms are spacious very well decorated. The Master bedroom and bathroom are luxurious. We particularly enjoyed the screened-in porch. The hot tub was a hit for our kids as were the three flat screen HD TV's. The home also featured wireless internet and Dish Network satellite TV service. We also enjoyed the pool and amenities at the Owner's Club which is a short drive from this house. Of course, the golfing opportunities in this area are second to none. I throughly enjoyed my 18 hole round of golf at the Eagle Ridge North Course, one of four first rate courses in the Galena Territory. We also took a couple of quick shopping/dining excursions into historic Galena, IL which is a 15 min. drive from our house. To top everything off, our family had a wonderful trail riding experience at the Shenandoah Riding Stables which is only 5 min. away from the house. The owners of this home are very friendly and accomodating. My wife, children and I would give our experience at this property an A+. We will definitely come back."

  • 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."
