  • Great Girls Getaway

    "Enjoyed a really great stay with some girl friends here! This home is in such a great location in Eagle Ridge,right around the corner from the Owner's Club, a short drive to Downtown Galena. The top floor is one big great room and was perfect for us to enjoy each other's company and catch up. There are three different sized beds (king, queen, full) which was great and two full bathrooms as well. The hot tub on the deck was just the icing on the cake complete with breathtaking views. Will be renting again soon!"

  • Girls Birthday/Getaway

    "I love this property! It isn't Fancy but it is Fabulous and located in the perfect area. It is 3 blocks from shopping on Michigan Avenue and 2 blocks from Rush Street. Ten of my closest friends celebrated my birthday in Chicago and this property was perfect for us. There was plenty of sleeping area (rented the Penthouse and the Garden Level) and the living rooms were perfect for us gathering together throughout the day. I highly recommend this property and can't wait to rent it again."
