    The house and the property was absolutely fantastic for our family mini-vacay. There were 6 of us as well as 2 dogs and there was plenty of room. We thoroughly enjoyed the open space on the main level as well as the recreation space downstairs. The house was clean and the bedrooms were adequately sized for all of us. It was such a nice bonus to have en suite restrooms in all of the bedrooms. We also took advantage of the Owners’ Club access as well as the accessibility of the Galena Lake Marina. It was an easy 15 minute drive to downtown Galena, but was nice to retreat to this quiet spot at the end of the day. Such a great time! We’re looking forward to coming again!

    Well appointed home we enjoyed as a family before the start of school. Loved the outdoor fire pit for late night gatherings. Owners club and pool was an added bonus! Property owner was very responsive to any requests and questions.

    My mom and all my sisters joined me for a short stay. We had a great time shopping, swimming, playing games, and just being together in this beautiful home.

    Our family rented this home for a family wedding in June. It was perfect because everyone had their own rooms and bathrooms to get ready . There was plenty of room for all to relax and we had everything we needed. Only wished we were able to stay longer to enjoy the territory.

    Six of us stayed 2 nights and could not of been happier with this home. It was perfect – very clean, very comfortable, owners very easy to work with and close to Downtown Galena. It was so nice that each couple had their own room with bathroom. We enjoyed the firepit and the ping-pong table and pool table. We will definitely rent this beautiful home again when we make it back to Galena.
