"Adorable" cabin in the woods! This cabin has 2 bedrooms (both Queen) and 2 full baths. There are twin beds in the loft, so it is perfect getaway for 2 couples with children or a small family. It also has TV/DVD/Cable, a fireplace and a deck with a gas grill. This unit is a short 1.8 miles to the Owners' Club where you will have access to the Indoor, Outdoor, and Kiddie Pools, Game Room, Fitness Center, Indoor/ Outdoor Basketball Courts, etc... Sleeps 6. Max. Occupancy 6.
I was born and raised in the Galena area. My family has been managing vacation rental homes in the area for over 15 years. We love the unique and beautiful topography of the Galena area and enjoy sharing it with others.
This was a super cabin for our family that included two teen boys. Plenty of room to spread out and VERY comfy furniture and beds. Nice kitchen supplies. Very clean, updated. There are other similar cabins/homes in this area, but we never actually saw anyone. Great hiking trails. About 10 miles from downtown Galena where we had some great meals. The fireplace works great! Several board games, cable and wifi but no Xbox as advertised. We would stay there again!
We enjoyed the house it was comfortable but a little tight. The living room really only seats 4, maybe 5. Some of the lights were out on the stairs down to the house which made it difficult to see where you were going when entering the house at night. The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals and there were board games that we enjoyed while we were there. Overall nice stay.
Our stay was wonderful in the territory but the house was a bit dated. The temperature was really uneven.. cold then really warm. The lights on the walkway were out and it hard to navigate for the first 3/4 stairs (scary at night)! Other than that it seemed nice but a little further in than I anticipated. I think we might revisit when it"s a warmer season so we don't freeze at night. Jolene was really a great representative and helpful!
Very nice house. We would definitely stay here again. It was clean, updated, comfortable. All kitchen amenities. Nice deck. Large propane BBQ on the deck. I have absolutely no complaints or suggestions for any improvement. It was a perfect stay. Thank you.
This is a very nice place, peaceful and a great location. The only problem I have is with management. They tried overcharging me last year (the price per night was $199, but charged $219 telling me that's the price on their website). They did end up honoring the $199 rate which is what we paid the two previous times we stayed there. This year I went to reserve it again and the total I was given was higher than the amount I paid the last two years (although the deal is still the same, $199 per night, stay 3 nights get 4th free). I was told that there is now a $75 cleaning fee added to all rental units. Nowhere on this site or the others does it state anything about a cleaning fee. In fact a couple of the listings state "housekeeping included". May I suggest that this fee is stated on the listing on this site, Home Away and any others the property is listed on. I guess I will continue looking for another place to stay in Galena this fall. I love the area and plan on buying a house in the Galena Territory by next fall.
We stayed 3 nights with our daughter and 2 grandchildren. The house is nestled in the woods so that when you are inside it feels like you are in a treehouse when looking outside. It is nicely decorated in a more contemporary way that we found so pleasant. There are vaulted ceilings that make it feel so open. The beds were all comfortable and there was one for each person because of the loft. You wouldn't want to have to carry any big bags up the spiral staircase though. But the kids loved it. We never even used the downstairs area as the advertised game system was not there. I did not care about that though as I did not want them using that while we were here. I did cook in the kitchen and it had everything I needed and the outdoor grill worked very well. We ate outside each day and were not bothered by the bugs until the sun would go down. The owners club was great. The children loved the pool and the free game room. This is about 8 miles from town so we did have to do some planning for meals. Ended up eating dinners at the house instead of driving back into town for a meal. We would definitely stay here again if we come to this area. It was so peaceful and had everything we needed to be comfortable.
