Guestbook comments from the manager

I just wanted to thank you for a great time. The house was immaculate and comfortable/cozy. The children loved the upstairs bedrooms, and we all had a great time playing in the basement.

Pictures aren't what you get.

I am normally not the type to write negative reviews but I feel the need to on this property. Although we made our own fun, the pictures of this property are very misleading. We looked for a house that provided a game room so our teenage-young adult family members would have plenty of options for a weekend of fun and games. All of the game equipment needs to be updated. The fuss ball table was about the only game that we could actually use. The pool table sits uneven and there was no chalk for the old dried out pool tips. The shuffle board game was not usable at all. The hot tub was nice, but kept at a pretty high temp and a lot of chlorine used in it. The appliances work but not great. The dishwasher for sure does not clean the dishes as we rewashed all of them after running a load of dishes. The property is need of a major cleaning of lights and fans. The positives for the property are....very beautiful outside. The patio/decks look very nice for outdoor sitting and there is a nice fire pit to use. The large dining room table was nice as we were all able to sit and enjoy dinner together. We also enjoyed many games of cards around the table. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are also kept clean. Walking on the floors throughout the property require wearing shoes or slippers as your socks would be dirty after walking around.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I apologize for the issues but was unaware of the games not working. Please don't hesitate to call us when you have issues so we may address them for you. We have been there since and the games are working so not sure what happened during your stay. It is a lovely home and we would want it to stay that way so we will definitely make sure we address the game room a little more intently so that everyone may enjoy the room. Again thank you for the feedback and we hope that you visit the Galena are again.

Dissapointed With Rental

  • 1 of 5

Let me start off by saying this vacation lodge was very impressive when me and my family walked in, it looked like you would want a vacation house rental to look in the Galena Territory. However, we had 2 main huge issues with our stay. The first was the metal fireplace frame that the chain curtain and doors were connected too was loose and had broken away from the actual fireplace. With a simple pull it could be removed entirely... this allowed smoke to billow up from the crack between the fireplace frame and the rock and filled the lodge with smoke. At first we thought maybe the chimney was not open but we confirmed it was, also the temp outside was much cooler than that inside so that was not it. But it turns out it was the fireplace face which was just sitting there loose allowing smoke to escape before it went up the chimney. So we couldn't use the fireplace which was one of the main reasons we even rented this property.

Secondly and the most grievous issue with this rental was the bedding on 3 of the 3 beds was dirty. The upstairs queen comforter had a huge water stain 2 feet in diameter on the underside of the blanket which in best case was a spilled drink and worst case a bed wetter....either way not acceptable. The same queen bed had white crusty dried mark on the bed skirt...I don't want to speculate as to what that was but it was completely unacceptable. The second upstairs bedroom which had two twin beds both had dirty blankets and pillows. Finally the master bedroom had 6 stains on the sheets and I had to drive 40 mile round trip to the local Wal-Mart to buy new bedding out of my pocket and new bedding for the queen mattress where me and my wife were sleeping, all this after a long day of driving up there. We then later had to buy a lighter for the fireplace as the one that was provided was out of fluid. There is no fire pit outside in the yard either which was a disappointment since the fireplace didn't work. Because of the dirty beds no one wanted to use the hot tub because they no longer trusted whoever was in charge of keeping stuff clean. I felt so horrible because I was the one that picked this place for our family trip. What a horrible disappointment that could of been way better if they just took more care when cleaning and fixed the fireplace. We will be back to Galena, but we will be staying somewhere else.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the comments and bringing certain items to our attention. We are definitely looking into them and will make sure they are taken care of. The bad part is that NO ONE called us about any issues until the day after the departure which makes it very hard to verify or even help you with any of the issues stated. We did check out the fireplace and found that it had come loose from the track and that has been looked at and is currently being fixed. Our phone numbers (office and after hours) are listed in the home so we really should have been called, especially when the fireplace issue happened. We do try to make sure all the homes are very clean, especially with the bedding. We also carry all new bedding at our office but unfortunately again we were not called to come out and see the issues and then try to help resolve them. The woman who rented the unit told us they didn't want to call an emergency number because they didn't think it was an emergency, but no one even called during our office hours either. This is a very nice home and we are very sorry you had issues but we would have gladly taken care of them if we were just notified right away and not the day after you departed.
