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:

We have stayed at a few places in the territories and by far this one was the best. The house was clean, great living space and plenty of bathrooms. We wished it was warmer to make use of the fire pit and awesome deck and screened in porch. We hopefully will be back in warmer weather to enjoy those amenities.

We rented this home for my daughters wedding party to get ready in and for her to stay in prior to the wedding and on her first 2 days of her honeymoon. What a perfect house for pictures as it's gorgeous, even nicer than the photos reveal. It has a great flow to it in the layout. This home will always have a special place in our family and thank you for offering it and making the rental process effortless.

Reviewer Comments:

the house was very good, just a couple of things, first we were very upset we could not get any televisions to work, as we are Iowa Hawk fans, we planned on watching the football game and could not get the tv to work, we called the help number and they said they would try to get ahold of the owners and we never heard back. We are very tech savvy but after hours, we finally gave up. This could be a deal breaker for us staying there again. The other thing was, there was one bath towel each for the whole weekend. It would be nice if they could provide more towels. If we stay there again, we will bring our own towels, which we should not have to for the price charged. I would recommend this to a friend, but warn them about the television and lack of towels.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately the whole area has experienced an outage issue with multiple cable providers. Maintenance has checked the home and all is a go now and working at this time (10/02/17). I spoke with the guests and told them this and that if there was anything I could do or resolve by contacting the owners I would do that. Unfortunately late on a Saturday night I was not able to come thru with a solution. I did offer a suggestion of checking out the Woodlands Bar and Grill as they most likely had the game on and plenty of good food and drinks just about 5 minutes away down at the Resort. Please note and we do say this in our welcome materials, we provide 2 bath, hand and wash towels in every bath. If you wish to have more please be sure to pack extras. This home sleeps 8 and does provide you a washer and dryer with detergent for your use during your stay. We hope you will consider our Bluffwood home as a great alternative to Hotel accommodations when visiting Galena.
