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.
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!!
- 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
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.
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.
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.
