“It was great and the location is fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2011

We (a couple of 3 persons- included a teenager) stayed there for two nights. Its not far from Galena but far away to have a silent place for relaxing. We were directely in the nature .. with a beautiful view on the lake, birds whistle..The rooms are also greate and large. There is a plasma TV above the fireplace, a small fridge and a coffee maker. In addition we had a whirlpool in the bathroom. In balance- we enjoy each day. That's exact what we expect after some days in Chicago...

This quaint little resort is specacular for any getaway. The rooms are clean and the king size bed makes it hard to get out of bed. We came about three years ago and since then the inn has been modernized and they added a pond with a walkout gazebo. I will bring the whole family this summer!

Room Tip: The best room by far is their cabin.

We found the LeFevre Inn to be a charming little inn with a great panoramic view of the countryside. Our room was very tastefully decorated and the fireplace gave the room an extra touch of comfort. The service was excellent. It was well worth the 5 minute drive out of Galena. We hope to have an opportunity to return to the Inn in the future.

We stayed at the Inn for two nights. We initially thought we would have preferred staying at an inn right on main street until we got to LeFevre Inn & Resort. The inn was the prefect location. It is a short 5 minute drive to main street and set up in the hills with a beautiful view and pretty sunsets. The property is large and quiet, it is close to the shops and restaurants but away from the noise and crowds on Main Street. The rooms have a king or queen size bed and a couch with a pull-out bed. There is a plasma TV above the fireplace, a small fridge and a coffee maker. We brought leftovers from meals back to the inn with us as there is a microwave that you can use to reheat food near the ice machine. The pool on site is a perfect size and the water was a great temperature. Although their websites states that there is a hot tub as well it is inaccurate as the hot tub has recently been removed. The rooms however do have a large two person jetted tub. If you are looking for a restaurant in downtown Galena stay away from Vinny Vanucchi's Italian Restaurant, it is overpriced and the food was terrible, probably the worst restaurant I have ever been too, no idea how it has any positive reviews.

Very beautiful suite with relaxing atmosphere! The manager was so friendly and helpful. The beds were extremely uncomfortable, though. I ended up sleeping on the sofa, which was far more comfy.

This was a wonderful getaway from Chicago. The prices were very reasonable, the owners were very friendly and helpful about local restaurants. The rooms were very spacious, spotless, and updated with all appliances including a fireplace in the room...not to mention how comfy the mattress and plush pillows were in the extra large King size bed. We will be back with out extended family later this summer...and you can bring small dogs too:) We will def. be back!

Wife and I spent our 39th wedding anniversary at this Inn and were quite impressed with the level of quality found here. Not your everyday motel chinzey fixtures. While the rooms in the main house were a touch "cozy", I felt, the overall feel of the establishment was very high. Michelle, the Innkeeper, was very friendly, helpful, and projects a feeling of actual care for the comfort of her guests.
The view from the front of Le Fevure is quite spectacular and the man-made Lake is beautiful and relaxing. Go ahead and purchase the bottle of wine in your room, you won't be disappointed.
An in-room microwave would have been nice, but it's the only negative I can think of.
I think we'll be back next year!
