Why The Owner chose Galena

After vacationing at the Eagle Ridge Inn and Resort in the Galena Territory in Galena, Illinois, we decided to build our own home so that other people could enjoy the area just as we have for so many years. Galena is equally beautiful in the summer and winter and the fall colors are amazing. There are so many activities to offer everyone, from sitting by the fire reading a book or sitting on the deck watching the flora and fauna to downhill skiing or golf.

What makes this house unique

This home offers the privacy and relaxation yet has all the comforts of your home in the beautiful surroundings of Galena, Illinois.

Weekend with the family

  • 5 of 5

We had an extremely enjoyable weekend in September. The house was perfect for our needs. My 80 plus year old parents and my siblings and spouses couldn't have been more pleased. The house was clean and had everything we needed for the weekend. The weather was beautiful which allowed us to spend a good deal of time on the deck and use the hot tub. We grilled out one night and ate on the deck. The Owner's Club is terrific. The fitness center is large with new equipment. Both the indoor and outdoor pool were open when we were there. There was a nice farmers market on Sunday too. We spent some time in downtown Galena which was just a short drive away. The lake was calm and we had a fun couple of hours on a pontoon boat. We even saw a bald eagle. All and all a great weekend at a great place.

Relaxng Family Weekend for Labor Day

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults, 2 children, and 2 dogs stay at this house for Labor Day weekend 2016. Our family really enjoyed spending time here. Although there are many houses nearby, this house is tucked in the trees and really does give you the feeling of seclusion. My kids enjoyed the extremely large back yard, we played many games of baseball back there over the weekend. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you could need. The house had plenty of room and we did not feel cramped at all. We enjoyed the hot tub on the screened in deck, as well as breakfasts, coffee, and game time on the nice outside table on the other deck. We also really liked the basement, with foosball, electronic darts, a basketball arcade game, and also there were many games and books there. My kids especially enjoyed all the Disney books. We didn't use the pool while we were there, but it looked nice. We did go kayaking on the lake on the property grounds, which was really nice. It was very calm and not busy at all, even with it being Labor Day weekend. We also loved being so close to downtown Galena. I would recommend this house to any large group looking for somewhere to stay for a nice, relaxing weekend, or even a longer trip, lots you can do. Thanks Tom!

The house could not have been more perfect for the 6 of us! We utilized the hot tub as well as a surf and turf dinner on the gas grill! There was more than enough room throughout the house and the view from the deck was great. Perfect accommodations and a big thanks to owner Tom for his hospitality! We can't wait to come back!

Very nice rental house

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our stay at the lodge was great. The hot tub outside is cleverly placed on a patio walled up by mosquito nets, so you can comfortably stay there, enjoy the summer weather and not worry about any bugs coming in. The nature surrounding the house gives it a nice, secluded feel. We did, however, have two issues with the house. While it comfortably sleeps 10 people, the dining table has only 6 chairs. So 4 of us had to sit on high chairs and we couldn't all comfortably sit down for a meal. In addition to this, although the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, there were not enough normal sized glasses in it, so we ended up buying a set of 8 large water glasses and left it there for the next people to come. Aside from this, the lodge was a wonderful place for a getaway weekend. I would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Eleonora, I'm glad you had a geat time and most everything was to your liking. I'm sorry to hear about the glasses. Thank you for the glasses but I wish you would have let me know while you were thre. I would have made every effort to get you more if I had known. As for the seating, you are correct. There are 6 chairs at the dining table in the kitchen as shown on the pictures in the listing and 2-3 counter stools for the counter next to the dining table. If you had mentioned that it was an important amenity I would have advised you. Hopefully you will consider us for future stays. Thanks for your business. I really appreciate it.

Army Nurses

  • 5 of 5

6 Retired Army Nurses,met for a reunion @ the Blackhawk Lodge. It was so much more than we expected. The Lodge is beautiful and we lacked for nothing!!. Beds enough for all and hanging out on the deck, was woderful. The surrounding scenery is a magnificient work of nature... Tom was great and very accomodating. We certainly would recommend renting this lovely place and will certainly do so again, if there is a Galena vacation, in my/our future. Thanks Tom
