Wonderful!

Aaron and Zoe were extremely kind, responsive, and courteous hosts from the beginning. Their place is very comfortable and clean. We had a wonderful stay for our mom's birthday. Thanks Aaron and Zoe!

Galena is terrific

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed the hiking on the Galena River and Heritage trails. The home is a bit pricey for the amenities. In particular there is a choice between a comfortable bed upstairs and access to the bathroom downstairs. A new mattress would resolve the issue.

Otherwise everything else was fine and the town is very interesting.

This house was great for our girls weekend! Everything was clean, the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, and the couches and beds were very comfy!

Cute, clean, comfortable house in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I came to Galena for a girls' getaway and found this to be a comfortable little house conveniently located for walking to downtown and for a quick trip to the supermarket. Nice, newer kitchen appliances. Cute and very clean and located on a quiet street (very little traffic). Weather was very humid and in the upper 80s and low 90s while we were there, so we didn't walk around the beautiful historic neighborhood after doing so the first day. It's only about a 6 block walk to downtown Galena, but very hilly and steep - mostly downhill going there but uphill coming back - a good walk for cooler weather than we had. The rental fee was very fair. I would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Location and Charming Home

  • 5 of 5

Such a charming home and an awesome location in Galena. We brought our 11 1/2 year old lab and had a wonderful time. The home is supplied with everything you could need. Great communication with the owners. Would highly recommend!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Zoe and Aaron were very accommodating - allowing us an early check-in time. And although it is an older home, the inside upgrades were pretty nice. We were trying to find a location within walking distance to downtown and it really is about a 15 minute walk (fyi - you do have to take stairs to get there)
