FAMILY FUN WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends (and our families) rented this house to celebrate us all turning 30 this year. We had a wonderful time and there was more than enough space to accommodate four couples, two toddlers, and two babies. We visited the pool, which was much larger than expected, with a great kids area. We would definitely recommend this house to others and hope to all return in the future!

THE MANHATTAN GROUP

  • 5 of 5
What a great week our family shared in this beautiful home! The kitchen allowed us to easily prepare meals for a dozen people ranging from 15 months to 61 years. It was clean, comfortable and spacious - but that does not do justice to the view and serenity. The open stairs may not be suitable for young children. Pre-school and older kids will love it. A dozen of us slept like babies in a well-appointed house that showed obvious owner's attention. The shops and restaurants in Galena are warm and friendly. The vineyard at Hanover is a must-do.

ANOTHER GREAT STAY IN GALENA...

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with our stay in Galena this past weekend. We have been returning to Galena for the past 5 years for the Galena Triathlon & Duathlon and were very impressed with our accommodations as well as proximity to Galena + Eagle Ridge.

The listing was accurate regarding photos, amenities and appearance. We look forward to returning and highly recommend! Thanks!

STEPPING OVER DOLLARS TO PICK UP PENNIES

  • 3 of 5
We stayed here a weekend in January 2014. The house was great. We were however turned off by how the property manager choose to manage this property.

Issue 1: A couple of days after our departure we were accused of taking a key card for the club house, and told it would be over the top replacement fee. Since nobody in our group went to the clubhouse we were perplexed by this accusation. After 3 days of emails back and fourth the property manager found said keycard. Good try!

Issue 2: Our group was charged in excess of the traditional cleaning fee. We were told that the kitchen counters were left dirty and that the garbage which was neatly bagged and left in the laundry room (only because the garage where the bins are kept is not accessible to visitors) was not appropriately disposed of. Mind blown at the charge for this.

We weren't able to get the outside grill working, but it was extremely dirty and abnormally cold, so I won't fault them on this. Like the comments about not providing wi-fi it just seems like this place nickel and dimes it's guests on the small stuff. I expected a little bit more for a place at the rate we paid during a non peak month.

LOVE THIS HOUSE!

I want to write something terrible so nobody rents this home and it is more likely available for my next trip, but I can't! It's beautiful and we had a great, great ski weekend!
