Fabulous house. Very well-equipped kitchen. Great layout for sleeping and socializing. The best house we have ever rented in Galena Territories. Will definitely return.

Spacious group getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house has great open space for our group of couples. The kitchen is very well-equipped, with everything you need, plus lots of room for everyone to gather! The table seats all of our group comfortably. The location of the house is close to the entrance to Eagle Ridge and the setting is picturesque. There are many activities nearby, but relaxing in the home is also easy to do. There were a few minor maintenance issues, such as a clogged bathroom drain, but we were assured they would be taken care of. The property company was very easy to work with.

Couples weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and we'll laid out for our large group. Plenty of room for all. Had a few minor issues, the front door lock was very difficult to use, took several tries to get it to lock and unlock. The gas grill would not light so we were unable to use it for our cook out, and no dish soap to wash up pots and pans. Other than that it was a great place to stay, beautiful views and secluded feeling. Would stay there again. And the property company was very easy to deal with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review of our vacation rental home. We take every review into careful consideration to allow us to improve our vacation property. To ensure that your review is helpful to our future guests; we had the gas grill serviced on Wednesday, October 5th, and it appears that the gas grill was not turned on appropriately before use. There should have been dish soap under the sink for washing any dishes. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and the 5-star rating!

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The location is awesome, so close to owners club and golf courses yet short (and picturesque) drive into town.

The house layout is ideal for multi-family vacations or girls get away. Just lovely setting and furnishings. The kitchen and outdoor spaces were perfect for evenings in and big breakfasts together as well. No complaints, we would definite stay again!

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and 5 children had a wonderful time staying in this home. It is the perfect location to take advantage of the swimming pools at the owners club and day trips to Galena and Chestnut Mountain. We loved having the two living areas, and five bathrooms was heavenly! The kitchen had more storage space than what we needed, and we made all of our meals there. It is just a minute off of Highway 20, but feels secluded. We also enjoyed golfing and taking a hot-air balloon ride.

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.
