Our stay was just about perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This house and the entire Galena Territory was perfect for our Christmas stay. Our party of 12 family members had plenty of room. The large main floor with open kitchen, dining room, and living room, was a great place to spend most of our time. Having five bedrooms all with their own bath and shower helped everyone get along well. The Owner’s Club, with swimming pool, game room, and basketball court gave everyone in the family a memorable time. We didn’t spend much time in Galena, because the house was all we needed, but what little we saw made us want to visit again someday. The only negative was that the home WiFi did not work at all during our stay. It’s amazing how reliant we all are on it! The fact that it didn’t work was definitely felt. All in all we definitely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We have been working with our ISP on this issue with the internet. Unfortunately for us, we are in the country and there are frequent breaks in service due to line maintenance and inclement weather. We hope to have the issue resolved soon with our ISP, but are glad to hear that otherwise your stay was perfect. It is indeed amazing how reliant we are on the internet.

Great house with well equipped kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We spent thanksgiving weekend w 5 couples and the kids and we had absolute blast. It was great that we each got our own room and bathroom and there was a ton of space for games for the kids and for us. The house looks much better and newer in real 👍 The kitchen is absolutely amazing w all the beautiful plates and cups , well equipped for your stay . To have the hot tub outside is a treasure after a long day w the kids. There is a beautiful waterfall just 1.7 miles from the house. Close to the chestnut mountains as well. Great location.

The home was clean and had more amenities. We had a great stay and would absolutely come back.

Also, very quick response time by the owner to all of our request and questions . Thank you, Stephen!

What a beautiful, warm home to stay in during a cold, rainy weeekend. The home was comfortable from the start. My whole family was so impressed at how beautiful it was. Very clean and up to date. From the cute dishes to the basic lay out of the home nothing had not been well thought out. The common areas had enough space for our group of 12 including small kids! We made great memories thanks to our comfortable lodgings.

A great place to relax!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are 5 couples who met in college in the 60's. We have been getting together for almost 25 years, once a year, to catch up on family, friends and memories. This was a beautiful place tucked in the woods for us to relax, especially since it rained for 2 days!!! No problem, we ate and talked and went out between rain to enjoy the great places to eat in Galena, went to the Country Fair and toured some historical locations. The owner was great to work with and made everything plain and simple. The kitchen was especially well equipped for us to cook a bit with a table that would fit all 10 of us! I would return to this house and will highly recommend it to others! Linda Gaumer

Perfect girl's weekend

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a large group. Open main floor and huge dining table allowed everyone to hang out together. Each bedroom has an adjoining bathroom, which made getting ready in AM a breeze. Quite cul-da-sac location. Emailed owner regarding an issue with power in one bathroom and received a response very quickly which solved our "problem." Highly recommend this property!
