Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as pictured. The only picture missing is the driveway, which is a HILL! Great workout walking around the place! Clean, kitchen was fully stocked, no need to bring anything. They even have a Keurig. Although I did bring my favorite chopping kitchen knife. Used the grill for 3 dinners as well. There was a couple BBQ tools in one of the kitchen drawers but if you have a favorite tool bring it.

I rented this for a family getaway, ages ranged from 1 yr to 70. Everyone had a great time. Only a 15-20 minute drive to downtown Galena. Plus the local grocery store is only a 5 minute drive past the turnoff for Main St, Galena. Members of my family used the community swimming pool, the game room, we took advantage of the kayaks, horseback riding in the community as well. Although I would recommend making reservations for the kayaks and horses when you get there. They can book up fast especially on Sat/Sun. They also fished. I would only recommend bringing bikes if those who are riding are comfortable on roads with cars (no sidewalks) and can handle the hilly terrain. Although there are paths just up the block, it is quite hilly....25mph on the down and sometimes the hills were so steep had to walk the bikes up.

The pool is only 1.5 mi up the road, totally can use the bike to get there just bring bike locks. Again, you share the road with cars and very HILLY! Bring your walking shoes as well. And for those who live in the city like us HIGHLY recommend going outside about 10:30pm on a clear night! Saw 2 shooting stars and more stars than you can imagine.

Mavis answered all my questions prior to and after booking this home very quickly. Very nice to deal with. Never had to call for anything while we were there. Nicely stocked house. I would recommend to friends and family.

Great Large family getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.
