About Vacation Homes of Galena by A Great Escape!

We've been coming to the Galena area for years and purchased this home in 2008. We love all the activities the area has to offer and think you will too!

What makes this house unique

The time spent here is always too short. If you golf, horseback ride, ski, fish or hike, there's lots to do for the outdoor enthusiast.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This being our second year working with you, I must say that the whole rental process has been absolutely seamless. My family LOVED the Bluffwood home. Clean, well maintained and nicely decorated... the home was the right size and very comfortable. They also really liked how close it was to Powderhorn. My family and I would like to rent the same two properties again next year !!

Reviewer Comments:

Three couples stayed in the Bluffwood rental home for three nights. The home was clean, well-maintained, had the necessities and was spacious. It was very comfortable. We were not there long enough to enjoy all the amenities (grill, fire pit, bikes, etc.) I would certainly stay in this home again.

Reviewer Comments:

The Mission Style home was JUST RIGHT for our group of 3 couples!!! I LOVED the outdoors area of the home...especially the fire pit as well as the indoor. Being there for a wedding it just wasn't enough time to fully enjoy the house, but we are MOST APPRECIATIVE of the time we shared with one another with our busy lives. We WILL BE BACK!??

What a beautiful, clean, comfortable, peaceful home. It was just what we wanted. We were even treated to a little wildlife viewing in the morning when we saw a family of wild turkeys from the deck. What a great time.

Relaxing and quiet destination

  • 5 of 5

We took a family vacation with 3 of our older children and our granddaughter. The house was very spacious and had a great layout. We were all able to enjoy ourselves with plenty of room. The house is fabulously decorated with a bright interior. There was enough parking for our 4 vehicles and the street was very quiet. It was close to town and close to the clubhouse which had the swimming and workout facilities that we took advantage of. The screened-in porch which had its own outdoor furniture and both the upper and lower decks which were not screened in, provided lots of seating and chairs. I loved the view from the back of the house which was woodlands. Plenty of firewood was available although we brought some just incase and left it for the next visitors as it was too hot for a fire. The side yard provided opportunity for some yard games that we had brought with us as the back yard was mainly the fire pit and seating around it and for enjoying the woods. We saw deer right across the street a few times, turkeys down the road, a few frogs and of course bunnies. The property manager was fast in answering questions and seems concerned about the property.

Our family enjoyed the quietness of the facilities and how roomy the house was. Close to town we were able to run to town to get pizza one afternoon and bring it back to enjoy it around the large dining room table. Other family members ventured into town for a few hours later in the day to check it out while the rest of us, took walks down the streets enjoying the sights and then took a nap. The miniature golf was fun in town and the burger joint in town is well worth the trip. The guys liked the backside of the menu which was devoted to funky malts but the sandwiches and fries were fantastic!

Four ladies on a three day two night trip were very pleased with this house rental. So very clean. Possibly the cleanest vacation rental I've ever experienced. Three good size bedrooms. Lovely deck and screened in deck areas. Enjoyed the pool at the center, that wasn't too far away. We had a blast and probably going back to this home next year.

We had a family gathering of 6, including 2 grandkids. The home has a great layout and plenty of room for meals and relaxing. The screened in porch and Deck with patio set, gave us plenty of room to spread out. Great location. Quick drive to Owners Club and Eagle Ridge Lodge.
