The owner of this property called me and emailed me several times to make sure I knew everything about the property down to how to turn the TV on. Wonderful, very clean property at a fair price. Thank you Dan for everything.

  • 4 of 5

First time visiting the Galena area. Great location. Easy parking for 2 or more vehicles. Layout of cabin was great. Outdoor picnic table would have been nice in grilling area. A couple of rocking chairs (or a glider) on the front porch or balcony would have been nice. Would definitely consider staying here again.

Owner's Response: In the fall the back porch will be screened in then I'll get some outdoor furniture. Tried working on the porch in May but the bugs were crazy. I swallowed a bunch of them, wasn't bad kinda fills you up, didn't eat lunch that day!!

We loved the home, the location and the surrounding areas-Cul-de-Sac that prevented thru-traffic

  • 4 of 5

The house was excellent, clean, comfortable. We were too busy to use the hot tubs or the pool table. However, both seemed to be attractive enough that if we would have had the time or the weather would have forced an indoor time frame, we would have used more of these amenities. The Wi-Fi didn't work and Sprint is one of the worst carriers to use around the Galena area. There was some frustration because texts and searches were difficult to use for communicating. Also, there is a lot of "downtime" that is filled with phone accessed applications to read (FB, Instagram, kids games, and others).

The owner did provide a high chair and a pack and play for the little ones. We were able to find small gates and other accessories at a nearby Wallmart. Location was between 15-20 minutes into town but the scenery and the winding roads made for very beautiful drives.

Other than that, we had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Everything is wireless in that area and the trees blocked the signal for the home Wifi. The new Internet Company is coming out August 7, 2017 and guests can use that for Wifi. Other groups have had problems with Sprint - You just can't believe those Sprint commercials!!
