Would love to come back and visit again

  • 5 of 5

We were attracted to this cabin by its wooded hilltop location, and it exceeded expectations in every way. It’s a beautiful home, recently constructed and very well-maintained. There’s plenty of space for multiple families – we utilized only a small portion of the house (for five adults and two children). The living area is very comfortable, with vaulted ceilings and a rustic feel. There are bedrooms on all three floors of the cabin. The wraparound deck was perfect for our two little girls to play on. And the fire circle was fun – just steps from the cabin down the hill. We were here in April, before the leaves came out and could see part of the lake from the deck. We saw a number of birds including wild turkey, bald eagle and various songbirds. One can imagine that the cabin is fun in all seasons. The cabin is up a winding road and offered a lot of privacy and quiet.

Frank is very helpful and responded to my texts immediately when I had a question about turning on the water. He provided several suggestions for activities, and the cabin is stocked with local information. We did not utilize the Apple Canyon Association amenities, other than one nine-hole round at the golf course. The golf course is uniquely situated among ancient stands of oaks and rolling hills.

Galena is an easy, scenic drive from the cabin. We also made it to Dubuque and the Mississippi River Aquarium and Museum, which was a lot of fun for the kids. Highly recommend Crust pizza in Dubuque. We enjoyed exploring the historic town of Scales Mound, between the cabin and Galena.

Amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly perfect for our family reunion. There were even more rooms and beds than we expected, plenty of seating for all 8 of us and 4 amazingly comfortable couches for us all to hang out. The rooms are on three different levels giving lots of privacy for everyone plus there's a great basement to hang out. The fire pit was also lovely. We spent time at the pool, which was free! I have rented cabins before and this was the best one we've rented. Frank, the owner was also very easy to contact and was also extremely helpful.

We had a great time

The house was exactly as promised. Frank was extremely helpful and easy to deal with. He checked in with us occasionally to make sure we had everything we needed and all our questions were answered. Great turnaround on the security deposit also. Highly recommend.

Fathers Day Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Went up for feathers day weekend and had a wonder time. Very nice home, well equipped and furnished, like how away from home. A couple thing's we enjoyed was use of the fire pit, grill and spacious deck, also open floor plan. Kids really enjoyed all the nature, and common pool area, whiched looked very nice and not overcrowded. Great weekend I would definitely revisit and recommend to all.

Perfect Get-Away!

  • 4 of 5

The house is great! Sleeps more than we initially thought. Kitchen is stocked with everything you need. We loved the wrap around porch and fire pit. Access to the beach is about a 10-15 minute drive. The beach is small, but we got there early to get a good spot. We brought rafts to float in the water and had a blast. Frank, the owner, was great to work with - provided us with all the details we needed and checked in to make sure we were ok. Would definitely recommend staying at Apple Canyon!
