Recent Illinois reviews

  • Nice location

    "Their were a lot of pluses included in this spacious home. If you are looking for a private place for a group of twelve or more this is the place to go. Six bedrooms with private bath. Nice dining area with kitchen. No crockpot and oven was not clean otherwise you should have what you need. Beds were very comfortable and if you need more towels you had use of washer and dryer. I recommend the owners supply pump soap in kitchen for guest.Bar soap while preparing meals not very sanitary. We had planned to go into Galena for dinner out but we enjoyed the property and the lovely dining/kitchen area so much we decided to stay and use the grill and outdoor kitchen area."

  • AWESOME AND EXCEPTIONAL

    "As most of the reviews have stated, this is an exceptional apartment and the views are absolutely amazing. The staff could not have been any better - friendly, courteous, and makes you feel like you are "home". The location is just far enough away from "the action" to be quiet but close enough to walk to most Chicago attractions. My daughter and friend needed a cab and asked one of the doormen - within 20 seconds, he had one at the front door for them! The apartment was clean, attractive and exactly as advertised! The kitchen had all the "gadgets" and was well-stocked for cooking and dining, although we did neither with so many restaurants to experience in Chicago! Having the washer/dryer in the unit was a big time-saver and convenience. For the most part, the building is quiet - there are a lot of dogs but most are "trained" and you only know they are there when you ride the elevator with them - I think I only heard one bark once and that was the excitement of getting to go outside to the adjacent park! We also appreciated being able to stay in a "green" building. I would definitely make this my first choice on my next trip back to Chicago! You will not be disappointed!"

  • 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."
