Guestbook comments from the manager

This being our second year working with you, I must say that the whole rental process has been absolutely seamless. My family LOVED the Bluffwood home. Clean, well maintained and nicely decorated... the home was the right size and very comfortable. They also really liked how close it was to Powderhorn. My family and I would like to rent the same two properties again next year !!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
4 of us rented the house for a Girl's Getaway w/e. The house was lovely, clean, spacious and great location. Housekeeping was most helpful and rental agent went above and beyond to get additional info as we asked for it.

Great property, a few warts

  • 4 of 5
We found this property to be a very enjoyable one to stay at. It was as advertised- very clean, in excellent shape, and plenty of room with a really nice setting -quiet, surrounded by woods. The couple of things that stopped this rating from a "5" rating was the shape of the gas grill and the working status of refrigerator. Gas grill's burners were in tough shape, electric starter didn't work- thus the temperature was difficult to control and we had to use matches to start burners, which was not too reassuring from a safety standpoint. Refrigerator was not working when we arrived. We called and the manager was very responsive, offering reimbursement for ice and spoiled food. But this should have been discovered before we arrived. Without these two issues, we would have given the property an outstanding review.

50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5
Pictures do not do this place justice! We had such a lovely time celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary with them. This place easily accommodated our 3 families and offered great opportunities for visiting and relaxing. We took some wonderful family photos on the back patio with the forest and glistening snow in the background. We enjoyed making dinner, breakfast, and building fires in the fire place. The Jacuzzi tub was wonderful, and the mini bar down stairs was a nice place for an additional gathering. I highly recommend this place for any of you getaway festivities!

Couples Weekend

  • 5 of 5
This house was awesome. We were there on a couples weekend getaway. There were six of us staying at the house. It was perfect as each couple had their own bedroom as well as their own bathroom. We could enjoy time together but also have our privacy. Planning to go back next year.

The Perfect Galena Getaway! Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5
This review is long over due! My husband, 4 year old daughter at the time, and I stayed in this cozy, yet elegant home. We called it first class camping because we lived in luxury, but yet felt like we were out in the wilderness. The outdoor fire pit was perfect for that feeling and we used it every night to roast marshmallows and snuggle up and eat s'mores! Plus, the Galena Territory is wonderful for taking in the outdoors and the beauty of fall. We saw many deer. Drive with caution and slowly!!! We also saw live turkeys while driving through the territory very near to this wonderful home! We celebrated our 7 year anniversary there and were hoping to make it back this year, but we just bought a new home of our own, so finances are a bit tighter this year. We plan to come back again. My daughter keeps asking, "Can we please go back to our home in Galena?" Yes, we will. I also want to mention how wonderful the Great Escape, Gabby in particular, was at accommodating our request to stay another night because we loved it so much and, luckily, the weather was too rainy for us to drive home. She took that into consideration and significantly discounted our last minute decision to stay over Sunday night. That is truly putting customers first and that is a huge reason we will stay at this wonderful home again. P.S. I'm very very very particular and I always need newer and immaculate homes. I'm also a real estate broker, so will refer others to this home, too. This one is a keeper. I have no constructive criticism whatsoever! I love the bikes, too!!! xo, The Alexopoulos Family (from Chicago then, now Northbrook)

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful stay. Everything was great! Very clean, stocked with everything you need! We enjoyed every night grilling out at "home" on the two grills (a charcoal and gas grill - take your pick!). Every evening we sat by the outdoor fire pit enjoying the fire and S'mores. Access to the Owner's Club was a bonus! The kids loved the pool and game room which was just few minutes away. The only complaint we had was that we had to leave! We can't wait to come back!
