  • Girlfirends Weekend!

    "Five lifelong college girlfriends spent a wonderful and relaxing weekend at the Above it All home. The best word to describe the home is "comfortable" The great room encompasses the entire upper level and provides plenty of space for togetherness, from cooking, playing board games, watching a video and most importantly, catching up. The upper deck was just the place for a BBQ and dinner at the picnic table. We didn't take advantage of that huge hot tub. No time! Loved the surroundings...trees, trees and more trees! A great area for walking and a short walk to the beautiful club house provided all of the activity amenities one would want. We spotted a few wild turkeys during our stay. The bedrooms being on the entry level would provide a wonderful opportunity to sleep in, but we didn't. Both bathrooms are on the lower level, no problem for us, just a little inconvenient. A few concerns worth noting that lessened the vacation feel for us. The toilets are in need of replacement as there are typed instructions taped to the toilet top on how to make them stop running. In the master bath, we regularly had to jiggle the handle and even remove the top, put our hands in the tank, to wiggle a handle to make it stop. Not much of a problem in the 2nd bath. Additionally, having to haul garbage to the disposal site across the Territory left a bad taste in our mouths. Seems like something the housekeeper would do instead of the guests. Other minor issues, there is only one TV, perhaps, 36" and enough seating for 6 adults in front of the TV. TV seemed really small relative to the huge room and huge, gorgeous fireplace. The great room A/C is extremely loud but does a tremendous job of cooling that huge room. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and had a great time on our first trip to Galena. Mary was wonderful to work with, timely with communication and willing to help in any way possible."

  • Second time at this location and will go back

    "This is our second visit to this penthouse location and it was everything we remembered and hoped for. Outstanding location. You can train in from O'Hare airport and never need a car. The unit is very clean and well equipped and the view is unsurpassed. There are bike rentals nearby which gave us access to Lakeshore Drive. We also walked to the Chicago Theater, the River Walk, Miracle Mile and numerous restaurants."

    "A beautiful part of the city and a complete home away from home feel. I highly recommend it."

  • What a great weekend!

    "We rented the house for a group of 6 couples (12) to have an annual Euchre tournament. This house was perfect for the occasion, down to the three (3) large table to play cards on. The bedrooms were all very nice and spread out throughout the house. Although we spent a good part of the weekend at the house, members of the group, had the opportunity to play golf, shop and visit the downtown area. Our group will be back next year !! They even want me to plan something for the fall. The owners were very responsive to all our questions leading up to the trip, and would imagine IF we had needed anything while we were there, they we would have been the same."
