Spectacular property inside and out. I love the open kitchen, dining room and living room with plenty of space for meal prep and conversation even with a large group. We enjoyed relaxing next to the cozy fireplace and watching beautiful sunsets and the night sky. Sitting on the screened porch at night listening to the wind, owls and wildlife is magical. The grounds, gardens and trails are beautiful with a large prairie and diverse tree and bird species. Low traffic cycling roads are right outside the door as well as acres of hiking and snowshoeing (be prepared for hills). Close to Chestnut Mountain ski resort and historic downtown Galena, known for its many festivals and parades. The owner is an exceptional chef and hostess and can help tailor your vacation, much more than just a place to stay!
