My Family Reunion!!!
My family has a reunion every year. We look for a place that can hold 16 to 24 people. This year we had 18 family members. I saw this house and contacted Christa about renting her place out. She informed me about the law which only allows up to 12 adults to rent her place. I then talked to her nextdoor neighbor, Dan about renting his place also. They both agreed that this would work and my family reunion was set. Christa was very easy and nice to work with.
The day we were to arrive was Thursday, July 28, 2011. The day before this Galena received the most rain it had ever had(13.5inches) in 24 hours. A lot of the roads were underwater, closed, or even washed away! I called Christa to ask her to find more information about it before we left. Christa called me back right away letting me know that her place was okay. After finally finding a road that wasn't closed we arrived. Christa offered us an extra night for our trouble. We respectfully declined because all of us had to be back to work on Monday. She didn't have to do this but it showed me how nice of a person she really is.
Two of my family members can't walk very well and her place was very easy for them. They were able to park right next to the front door and within twenty feet they were inside and sitting. The house was better than what the pictures show. Very spacious, big kitchen to cook, two bedrooms on all three levels, more than enough more for the 12 people that are allowed.
There is so much to do in Galena. During our stay we went hiking, to the casino, wine tour, ghost tour, the owners club(to workout), and the aquarium. Stuff we wanted to do but didn't have time and these were closed due to the rain/mudslides was the Apline Slide, renting a pantoon boat, and using the pool at the owners club.
My family has yet to ever have our family reunion at the same place twice. We love trying new things and new places. Christa's and Dan's house were so great and the stuff we didn't get a chance to do we decided we want to come back next year. That's how happy we are about these two houses! If you rent this house you will be VERY happy with it and the owner!!!
Thank you Christa!!
