Three Gables Luxury Home - The Galena Territory
average rating of 4.095238 based on 21 reviews

great space for a family, especially kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Three Gables home. Our family, from ages 3-76, had an enjoyable time. The owner was great at communicating and the house was clean. It was a great benefit to have use of the garage for accessing the house and storing outdoor toys. There is a lot of great green space. We would recommend this house to others.

Spacious, great house for a family getaway. Nice and close to all attractions and Downtown Galena.

  • 4 of 5

We had 5 families meeting for a long weekend, the house was perfect with more than enough space. Rooms are nice and large to accommodate each family. Outside space is beautiful, peaceful and area is VERY clean. Everything we needed for our stay was in the house, as far as kitchen equipment, pots, pans etc. Only thing missing was a table on the deck for us to enjoy the outside space for meals and games. Also house is advertised as seating for 10 at the dinning table, there is only 8 chairs. But otherwise we can not complain, we for sure would come back to this house. The owner was great to work with as well!!

Good overall

  • 4 of 5


- The owner is nice and communicative

- This is a great place if you have multiple families staying. There's room for kids to spread out so they're not waking each other up

- Lots of yard and grass

- Nice location that's not too far from town

- A great deck that contains children well


- There are skylights in 2/5 bedrooms. Makes it very hard to sleep with the sun coming in (especially for babies)

- There were lots of bugs in the house. None of them freaked me out (and I freak easily). I'm sure this is more of a function of being in a somewhat outdoorsy location vs. the place itself, but something to be prepared for

- The house could use more nice touches--decorating is sparse and it doesn't have much of a homey feel. Could use a paint job

Owner's Response: All good points. We will be adding shades to the skylights. It is true as well that in the Galena Territory, with so much wooded area and Green Space, we have to constantly be working to minimize pests. We will continue to do so. I would also agree that our decorating style is more of a sparse taste. We will be re-painting throughout as suggested.

Very comfortable for lots of people

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we rented this house in Galena. It was clean, spacious, lots of bedrooms, close to town, swimming pool, golfing, wineries. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. Beautiful big deck. Nice neighborhood to walk in. We had four generations and all enjoyed it.

Great Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Had the pleasure of staying here with family and friend the week before Thanksgiving. We were lucky enough to arrive before a big snowfall. This worked out perfect for us as we had kids with us and the hill next to the house served as a perfect sled hill for the kids to enjoy most of the day Saturday. We experienced no other issues that were mentioned before. Only thing we had an issue with was not enough cable channels as we are big sports fans and were not able to get some games on Saturday night. No biggie. One thing that occurred was my 3 year old daughter lost our Amazon Kindle. We did not realize this until we arrived home. We asked Barry, the owner, to look and he was unable to find it. After checking with everyone who was there we still came up empty. My wife asked Barry to again check but check, keeping in mind, that a 3 year old had it and he was able to locate it under a bed upstairs. He promptly packaged the Kindle and mailed it to us asap. Thanks Barry! We will definitely be back.

Please be cautious

  • 1 of 5

Our family, along with another rented this property for four consecutive years. While it was only marginally well furnished and comfortable, we liked the proximity to the activities we enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to have our dog allowed during our stay. While planning for our last stay(2014), the owner asked us to pay in full earlier than required because of "an unexpected tax situation". Because we felt we had cultivated a relationship with the owner, we did so and were promised a free night on our next stay. Luckily for the owner, he didn't have to keep that promise as our last planned stay, October 2015 never happened. I kept in touch by text, our typical mode of contact. As late as July, we were told, "you're all good, have been traveling". I still have proof of that text. Yet, he fell out of contact completely with the excuse that he traveled internationally and couldn't receive texts. When he did contact us again, he told us the property was no longer available. We were left to scramble at the last minute to find accommodations for one of the busiest weekends of the year. Please approach this property and this owner with caution. We did our best to maintain a positive working relationship and were treated poorly. We ended up renting through the resort and had a much better experience. I would recommend that approach over this owner to anyone considering this property.

Owner's Response: The renter is correct on all points. I made a big error in utilizing text messaging for rental confirmation. In this case the family had stayed at my home for four years and were great to have. I thought I had followed the text communication with an email booking request, unfortunately the request for confirmation was not forwarded, and the weekend was double booked with another renter's confirmation. I did try to compensate the renter for the real difficulties I caused. I paid the renter $365 for the nights stay we were to provide, and offered a weeks stay free of charge to help compensate for the error. The only point I was a bit uncomfortable with was point on furnishings and comfort; however, that is a personal point. I am very sorry to have caused these difficulties and will work very hard to insure it does not happen again.
