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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We will be back and want to stay in this very rental. This place was absolutely perfect for a getaway. The home itself is wonderful and cozy and had EXACTLY what we needed for our stay. Beds were very comfortable and the living room area was ample space for us. I hate staying in cramped hotel rooms with just a bed and TV and this is hands down about a million times better. Home away from home. And I can't rave enough about the almost panoramic views of the forestry. Stunning and peaceful. We saw deer right outside our place, and even a few wild turkeys. (yes, you read that right!) I loved that our "home" was tucked away in the most peaceful of surroundings and yet only a 10 minute ride to downtown Galena. We stayed in December where the trees are barren, so I can only imagine how amazing it must be in the summer when they are lush and green, or even the fall with all the colors. The home was clean and very well kept. I will definitely be back! Thank you again for this wonderful spot. Loved every minute!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the "treehouse" (what my son calls it!) The pictures don't really do it justice, the deck, views and outside area are quite stunning. My son already wants to go back!

Childhood Memories

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in this home off and on since I was a child (15+ years). Very clean, nicely decorated and good amenities. We will continue to return in the years to come.

A Fine Retreat to the Woods!

  • 4 of 5

The pictures don't do it justice. It's a curiously-shaped house in a beautiful setting (and we missed late fall color). Great access to amenities and local activities in the Galena Territory and in Galena itself and Dubuque. Just about everything you need in the "toadstool" house. It would be a bit small if you intended to spend tons of time there with more than two, but it was enough for our family of four (2 little kids) as we took day trips all over. Thus, it was a great base of operations. Only improvements I can see would be in kitchen tools - a big saucepan and knives that actually cut, but those things are easily remedied.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed the charm and uniqueness of this home. Maybe next year you'll be able to catch the spectacular fall foliage. We will look into improving the kitchen accessories. Thank you for your feedback- it's very much appreciated.

We had a great time. Very quiet and peaceful; just what we were looking for. Comfortable and clean. Loved sitting on the deck, enjoying the wooded view. Very happy we made the trip!

Nuttiness and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The place was wonderfull I really enjoyed myself. Only thing I had a problem with was the sliding door, the shade for the door kept falling and no latest lights. But house was clean and comfortable.Th atmosphere was so nuttiness and relaxing. I would definitely recommend visting the home to friends and family.
