Pefect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing! The house is decorated beautifully, clean and in a quiet location with breathtaking views. We got married at this house. It was the perfect location for a very important day. The master bedroom made the perfect bridal suite with all large mirrors, furniture and mini fridge for our mimosa's. All the men joined at the bar and in the game room. We had our ceremony outside on the garden terrace (the view made an amazing back drop) and the reception was inside. Our guests had a wonderful time admirring the views, drinking and dancing in O'Donnells pub and just relaxing with good conversation on the many decks. We had our immediate family stay with us at the house for the entire weekend. It was so relaxing and intimate, Our Friday night rehersal was a cook out at the house, We have so many cherished memories from the entire weekend. If I had it to do over again...I would just add a few more days to our trip. I would highley reccomend this house for important events and gatherings. This house is a one stop shop for special occassions! I would be happy to share pictures with anyone considering doing any kind of event similar to ours at this house.

Amazing House! Great Owners! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
This house is absolutley amazing in every way....from the house always being in fantastic condition, to the owners always being so friendly, flexible, and easy to work and book with! My family/friends and I have been renting cottages up in Galena for the past 10 years or so, and for the past 5 of those years we have rented this particular house. The house is always extremely clean and well-taken care of when we arrive, it has everything you can ever possibly look for in a winter cottage; from the pub room, to the hot tub outside, the beautiful views from the loft, to the gorgeous loft area and master bedroom upstairs. We always rent this house because it is exactly what we are looking for. It provides us an avenue to get away from the everday stresses of life and allows us an opportunity to all get together, spend quality time with eachother, and relax. Not to mention downtown Galena is a short drive away as is Chestbut Mountatin. This house has provided us with so many great memories throughout the years and we are so grateful to the owners for allowing us to rent it year in and year out. They truly provide an excellent house and great customer service. They always remember you when you come back and you can really tell they care about their renters. I would HIGHLY recommend this house to anyone looking for a Galena getaway!! 5+ stars!! It's absolutley amazing and everything you can ask for. You think it looks great in the pictures...wait until you see it in person...even better!!

Great For Big Groups

This place was excellent! My family and I stayed here over Christmas and the owner was nice enough to set up a tree for us. The description provided was accurate, the place was very clean and the rate was quite reasonable. I would certainly recommend this to a friend.

Perfect house for a winter ski weekend with friends. Beautiful kitchen attached to awesome bar area with a great juke box. House is unique and comfortable. Easy to access main roads and head to town/skiing. Owners were great and very easy to work with. Might even have to come back this summer!!

Christmas in Galena Territory

  • 5 of 5
Once again, the home in the Galena Territories provided many Christmas memories that will be remembered for years. Mother Nature even contributed with an unpredicted couple of inches of snow on our "Christmas Eve" experience. The drieway and steps were cleared first thing the next morning, so we had no inconvenience from the snow. The hill next to the house made for ideal sledding for the grandkids. To say that this vacation home is perfect in every way would be an understatement. Looking out over the wooded area in the morning we caught glimpses of deer, rabbits, squirrels and even a lone coyote. One of the grandkids was given a camera for Christmas, which got a real workout almost immediately it. It is hard to put in words how fantastic the inside of this home is. Nothing is left to the imagination. It has it all, from the enormous bedroom suite upstairs to the hot tub on the deck.. This home is clean,easy to find and has amenities that make any vacation a memorable experience. The many decks give fantastic views of the woods and golf course. There is even a game room down a hallway that can be enjoyed without noise carrying throughout the rest of the home. I would definately recommend this home to anyone. My grandkids, as well as their parents and great grandmother all agree with me on this. We had a wonderful Christmas weekend.

Owner's Response: We are happy that we have been able to be part of your Christmas experience in such a positive way. We had nothing to do with the dusting of snow but will gladly take credit for it. The wild life in the Territories is spectacular and the best time to get a gimps of it is during the winter months. We never tire of it! Thank you for taking the time to write a review and Happy Holidays to you and your family.

FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5
FABULOUS! Great, user friendly and beautiful home. The trip was easy from start to finish. This home contributed to memories for our children and grandchildren that were above and beyond our expectations. Home is very well equipped especially the kitchen. No need to drag along your big casserole dish to make your favorite breakfast....it's there (yes! I brought mine along with other items that I did not need because the home was so well stocked). Love! Love! Love! this place for any occasion or to just get away from the hustle bustle. Our family will be making efforts to make an annual visit.
