About A+ Reservations

I was born and raised in the Galena area. My family has been managing vacation rental homes in the area for over 15 years. We love the unique and beautiful topography of the Galena area and enjoy sharing it with others.

Great girls weekend!

  • 4 of 5

My 5 girlfriend's and I came up here for a get away! It was the perfect Lil cabin to come stay at. Loved the upper loft so cute. It was far enough away from downtown to be on our own but close enough that we stay till had a chance to go and shop!

Pet & Family Friendly

  • 4 of 5

I really though that we would leave the house a lot more but everyone was happy and comfortable. The house had everything we needed. There were deer visitors daily in the back yard. The kids loved the spiral stairs leading to the loft that they shared. We would rent again. Thank you for allowing pets. We rarely get to take them and this worked out well for all of us.

Extended Columbus Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Galena. Because we enjoyed staying at the house so much and were so relaxed that we ended up not doing half the things we planned to do in the Galena area. We cooked a number of meals at the house as the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Lots of channels on the wide screen TV in the living room. Lots of privacy between the bedrooms and the loft. Watching the sun set on the deck in the evening was nice, very beautiful view! Hope to be back! Would definitely recommend this property to friends.

Comfortable Stay with Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I took our grandparents to Galena for the weekend. This was a great place to stay - the deck had lots of room, the view was beautiful, the beds were comfortable, and my dog could join us! I had seen some previous reviews about the dining chairs being wobbly, but all the furniture was both sturdy and comfortable for us, both inside and on the deck. The resort amenities are great as well, and it was about a 15 minute drive into town. This is a great value and could comfortably fit all of us. Make sure you read the reservation policies for things such as trash pick-up (you will be assessed a fee if you don't take trash to a dumpster on site or leave $2 per trash bag when you leave). We would definitely like to stay here again!
