It was nice, but....

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful house. But.....the towels are old and smell. The furniture is also old. Many of the tables are wobbly and when you sit in the couches you sink to the floor. There also seems to be a lady bug problem. Other than that, it was great!!! The company that represents this house helped immediately when the coffee maker wouldn't work. All in all we had a great time. It is in a great location. I guess I just wouldn't call it a "luxury" home.

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us stayed at this home for a long weekend recently, and the home was beautiful. It was as spacious as the pictures show, and everything is in excellent condition. The home was very clean upon arrival and had most everything that we needed for our stay. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishware, silverware, utensils, and other staples for cooking (e.g., spices, sugar). The property is in a secluded location, but is only a 15 minute drive to town. We also appreciated the use of the pool and tennis courts at the Owner's Club (about a 7 minute drive from the house). We found the whole rental process very easy, and can't say enough good things about this property.

Friend Trip

  • 5 of 5

12 friends ( late 20s, early 30s) went to Galena for the weekend with the intention of going skiing. However, mother nature was not to kind to us and Chestnut Mountain was closed due to the lack of snow. However, we still had an absolute blast. We played a bunch of board games, watched movies, went in the hot tub, and explored Galena. We cooked dinner both nights and the kitchen had everything we needed. It was a very well stocked kitchen for a rental house. The house was beautiful and well-kept. There was plenty of sleeping space for everyone! It was a relaxing weekend away from the city. We had no problems and will definitely be back!
