I cannot say enough good things about this place, the property managers, the location, the downtown area, the whole stay in general - even the drive in! Our entire group was in love & awe & we didn't want to leave. A return visit will definitely be in the works whether as our original group or each of us with our own families in the future!! A big thank you for the ease & communication with everything being taken care of from Mary, Eric, & Kevin. Cannot wait for a return visit! Thank you Almost Heaven Rentals & Galena for an unforgettable weekend!

Normal, IL

A beautiful home that is well designed and nicely decorated

  • 5 of 5

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.
