Perfect Galena Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

9 of my girlfriends and I stayed at this BEAUTIFUL house for a Bachelorette party. We were VERY happy with our choice for many reasons ~ location was easy to find, house finishes were top notch, wide open kitchen / family room perfect for our large gathering, hot tub was clean and set to the right temperature, and the best part...we had access to the Owner Club!

My only suggestion for the owner would be to improve the WiFi connect and to purchase a Keurig coffee maker.

Girls' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was the perfect get away to celebrate over 25 years of friendship with four of my closest girlfriends. We were able to spend time together cooking and staying up late talking and laughing and basically being loud. It was simply a great house and none of us wanted to go home! I am so glad that we stayed together at this home instead of a hotel. The master bath is so big that we all did hair and make up together just like in college before a night on the town. We had a great location to downtown Galena and it was easy to find. It's a clean, well kept property with beautiful views and wonderful layout for entertaining. No complaints here! Great memories! Thank you!

Great house for a big family!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a Christmas holiday family reunion and couldn't have picked a bitter place. In the past, we had rented the same house in 'Eagle Ridge. As is was not available at the time we wanted to stay, I found this house on VRBO. We all agreed that this house was MUCH better - it is very comfortable, has a great kitchen for cooking and dining and room for everyone with 5 bedrooms and bathrooms. Having two seating areas (one upstairs and one down) was perfect for families - adults and kids could hang separately, watch different shows or movies, etc. Cannot recommend this house more and hope to return!

Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time our whole family has rented this home. The house is very clean and well kept. The layout is good for families with children. Everyone can have their space. We particularly like the kitchen as it has everything you need to make meals and several people can be using it at the same time. The location is next to a golf course with walking trails that we used every day. We hope to come back again.

Annual Galena Goers

  • 4 of 5

We LOVE this house-it fits our group wonderfully. A couple of suggestions: please make sure nightlight bulbs are working and liquid soap dispensers actually have soap in them ( not so watered down that all you get is water). We also are wondering about the living room furniture-not so comfy and not enough comfortable seating upstairs. As we all know furniture needs to be replaced from time to time. Furniture in downstairs area super as well as the beds are super comfy!! Lots of kitchenware, dishes, glasses, etc. overall a FANTASTIC house!!! THANK YOU!!!!!
