Great family fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on family vacation! The house was plenty big for 10 of us. Every bedroom has a king size bed and it's own bathroom, which worked out great. Very clean. Kitchen well stocked with utensils and cooking items. Stephen was all over it when we didn't have hot water and sent the plumber within hours to have it fixed. Kids loved the small putting green, fooseball table and hot tub.

You have access to the owners club, which has pool, workout room, basketball court and game room, so lots of options (note: it's about a 10 min drive to the club).

Downtown Galena is about 12-15 min drive away.

Incredible weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Lots of room for eight adults. The living room and dining room were very well set up for socializing, but the bedrooms were large enough and private enough for quiet time. The kitchen was extraordinarily equipped. You won't need to bring any pots or pans. We're definitely planning on coming back.

Great property, plenty of space, each bedroom has a bathroom. Hot tub was a huge hit!

  • 5 of 5

We took a family trip to Galena with (10) kids and friends ranging in age from 14 to 20. Our total group was (12) people. The master bedroom is on the main level, with the remaining 4 bedrooms on the lower level. Each of the 5 bedrooms has an attached bathroom with shower, which was awesome! There is also a sofa/sleeper on the lower level as well, which is how you arrive at the total sleeping space for 12 people.

The hot tub was a big hit with the kids as it got used numerous times. We visited in late December, but the cold did not detour anyone from going in. There were plenty of towels provided for both showers and the hot tub. I was impressed by how many there were.

The kitchen was well stocked with pans and utensils. There was plenty of space for group meals. I was surprised that little things like dishwasher soap, paper towels and coffee were provided. We did buy some additional garbage bags, but our group did create a lot of trash during our stay. The provided washer and dryer were used several times. Here too I was impressed that laundry soap was provided.

The clubhouse was awesome. We went there for an afternoon and played basketball in the gym for several hours. We did not see a map telling us how to get to the clubhouse as it is too far to walk. Ultimately we figured it out, but a map of the property would have helped a great deal.

A couple small tips. We checked out a little late on our last morning as we were slow getting everyone up and out. We did get hit with a charge to our security deposit as a result. Be sure to check out on time. Also, don't lose any of the cards for the clubhouse. We misplaced one and ending up finding it after we got home. We had to send it back via FedEx. It is worth the extra effort to keep close track of these during your stay.

All in all the property was great. We plan to stay again on our next trip to Galena!

great size for multiple family stay with all the needed household amenities, comfortable furnishing

  • 5 of 5

We had a slight snag with our early check in because of the late departure of the prior guests but the property owner responded immediately with a suitable resolution. The rest of our New Years stay went off with great success. We had 7 adults and 5 young children and never felt cramped. There was plenty of comfortable seating and a huge dining room table for meals, games and puzzles. We didn't use the sleeper sofa but the other 5 king size beds were deemed comfortable by all for the first time in any of my many multi-family overnight excursions. We packed extra cooking and backing wares only to return home unused thanks to the overly stocked kitchen.The fire place gave us some extra ambiance and the kids loved the foosball table. They may have liked the starry nights and indoor pool at the owners club even more. Thanks
