Great

We spent 2 nights there with friends, 3 couples in all. Accommodations were very comfortable and everything as advertised. The owner was cooperative and pleasant - a wonderful place for a retreat, not far from restaurants and activities, but quiet and peaceful. Would recommend this property.

almost perfect cabin

We really liked this house for our vacation, clean and cozy, with all your needs. Our only problem was the heat. The living room is big and takes time to warm up, even with all the doors and windows closed. The vents were blowing warm/cold air and in the bedrooms was very hot ( 85F) and in the living room (69F) which was cold.
Overall was nice and almost perfect!
thank you!
Owner's Response: We did have our heating guy out to check for any problems. He noted one of the heating vents in the main room had slipped under the crawl space. It has since been repaired. You should have brought it to our attention when you were there and I would have had him out earlier. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

Great place!

The house was the perfect size for 4 of us! It was clean and we had everything we needed. the only "problem" was that the main living area was on the cold side and when warmed up, the bedrooms were VERY warm. We figured out a happy medium and used the plentiful extra blankets while we were watching a movie. Overall, a great place that I would use again!
Owner's Response: The heat usually is not to much of a problem if you keep the upstairs doors closed and the 2 glass french door off of the great room closed. I am glad you were able to work it out and enjoyed your time in the territories. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

Great little home

The property was exactly as we expected. It was clean and well maintained - during the stay we rented a pontoon, walked, played in the owners club (which exceeded our expectations), and enjoyed some meals at the Eagle Ridge Inn. We barely went into Galena as there was so much to enjoy on the grounds. The sunsets were great and on one night we even saw the Milky Way from the deck. Thanks for thinking of everything - there was even a kettle so that these English folk could make a cup of tea! Try Chef Ivo's BBQ in downtown Galena. They take great care to slow cook their meat over 20 hours.
