About the property

Galena, Illinois

Peace and tranquility await you at this picturesque Galena vacation rental house, nestled in a very private, wooded setting far from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

You’ll immediately feel at ease the moment you arrive at this secluded wooded property, entirely surrounded by beautiful thick trees. Look forward to spending quiet mornings out on the screened porch, where you can sit at the table with a hot cup of coffee and take in the home’s serene atmosphere. For dinner, whip up some tasty barbeque on the grill located on the back deck, followed by s’mores around the new fire pit in the backyard with your loved ones. Everything you need to cook or grill meals is provided!

Your favorite relaxing spot will quickly become the home’s private 6-person outdoor hot tub on the deck, which you’ll surely appreciate after a day of skiing in the wintertime. The house also features an inviting fireplace to keep you warm on chilly evenings. During the summer months, lounge on the hammock in the backyard while listening to the soothing sounds of nature.

Cancel your booking, this house is a mess.

  • 1 of 5

The hot tub was gross and unusable the first day, very bad smell. I had to purchase pool shock and run the hot tub 24 hours to get to an acceptable temperature. Very unprofessional, the hot tub should be cleaned after each guest, should be on a timer and keep hot.

The outside furniture was very dirty (not cleaned) and unusable. The sliding screen door was broken and unusable. There was rotten wood on deck that created a trip safety hazard. There was only one bunk bed ladder for two bunk beds and the bunk beds were very unstable.

There was garbage surrounded the house, cigarette buds everywhere.

Don't advertise a fire pit and not provide any wood, you would expect some firewood.

No Wi-Fi as advertised, I brought my amazon fire stick to binge watch, no luck without Wi-Fi.

The stove was broken, only one burner worked. The BBQ was unclean and no tools or supplies to clean the BBQ were provided. Nice that it is advertised: “whip up some tasty barbeque on the grill located on the back deck” and “Everything you need to cook or grill meals is provided!” except for a clean BBQ and a working Stove.

Lastly, they have not done anything about the reported wasp infestation. The wasps were everywhere inside the house and inside the screened in deck, I had to purchase wasps killer.

All and all: pack pool shock, cleaning supplies (and be prepared to clean), wasps spray, firewood or book some where else.

Lovely site, clean house, easy to find

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our late-20s Chicago-area daughter and a few friends, several of them chefs, for a getaway weekend in March 2017. They arrived late at night, found the house well-lit, and loved their stay. They used the hot tub and the fire-pit, enjoyed both, and said they'd like to return for another visit. The local manager was professional and returned calls immediately.

Nice home

Clean, comfy. Plenty of room. Hot tub was a nice bonus. Actually bought them a new coffee maker as the other was plugged. Definitely would go back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review--and the coffee maker Patrick! Our team is always happy to help assist you if you encounter a challenging situation (let's face it, no coffee is definitely challenging) in the future! Best, The Evolve Team

We felt at home in this rental!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here and wish we would have stay longer. The kitchen is quite small but bad everything we needed. The can opener did not work so we bought a new one(enjoy 😊). The driveway was pretty steep so one of our vehicles could not come down it since it snowed otherwise they wouldn't have been able to get back up. The hill in the front of the house was an amazing sledding hill for my kids! The hot tub was awesome! Overall a good time!
