ABSOLUTELY THE BEST EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
We simply could not have asked for a better experience staying in this charming cottage. Meticulously maintained, we found no detail overlooked. Down to the door handles, the property’s antiquated appeal made you feel right at home in the 1800’s. It is everything a Bed and Breakfast aims to be, in terms of décor and personality, but with the convenience and privacy of your own home. And you could not beat the location. Steps away from all the hustle and bustle of Main Street, but with something many properties in Galena don’t have, an actual yard! You’d be surprised how stacked one-upon-the-other many properties in Galena are. I suppose it’s due to the nature of building in a hilly river town, but while this property is located right in the Historic District, it offers the private and peaceful serenity of a well place, and well sized lot. And it has a garage! Yet another modern convenience you will rarely find. We found the home to be clean and cozy, with a well-appointed kitchen even my gourmet husband could appreciate. We have rented many properties over the years and have dealt with every kind of agency and/or owner. I can honestly say that the owner of this property is by far the most pleasant, and accommodating person we have had the pleasure of doing business with. We will definitely be back!

PLEASANT SKIING WEEKEND IN GALENA COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
My wife, two kids (10 & 7) and I had a very pleasant weekend stay at this cottage. Located on one of the major Galena roads, a short walk from downtown and 15 minutes from Chestnut Mountain, it was a refreshing break from look-alike hotel rooms and condos. The cottage was clean and spacious and easily could have slept six, though the single bathroom might then become an issue. The owner was very helpful and the listing fairly reflected the offering. The one issue we had was that there was a good amount of animal hair in the carpet (our 7 year old has some allergies) and the on-site vacuum cleaner was not up to the task. This is a great rental for someone who wants to be in town, wants basic amenities, and isn't looking for the oversized tub or TV screen.
