From the time I booked the house, I knew I was making a great decision. Jim was warm and welcoming. I am an over packer, and I learned a hard lesson because I did not have to pack anything here. This place was packed with everything you need, which surprised me. I loved that I had the top floor and my kids had the bottom level. The two full bathrooms was great. It was a small piece of heaven having a private area to myself. Everything was clean and organized. The resort perks were awesome. We were there everyday doing something.

I plan to come every year during the summer. There are so many places to go and things to do, and it is so peaceful here. I plan to stay at Jim's and Jenny's place because it was close to everything and exceeded my expectations. I cooked dinner and breakfast everyday, and having the washer and dryer was a plus. If you come to Galena, do not stay at a hotel; this is the place to stay if you want to be close to everything and if you want a warm welcoming environment. Also, if you are up for adventure, take a balloon ride with Andy because it was an awesome experience.

“Great stay, very cozy townhouse”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is our second stay at this property (first one was back in 2014). We really love it there. We were 5 adults and 1 child this time around and we had a really great time.
The house is clean and very well-maintained (we noticed a couple of upgrade since last time) and we love its feeling of coziness. Plenty of room for our needs (5 adults + 1 child). Beds are comfortable, even the extensible sofa from the living room turns into a surprisingly good bed when extended. All the amenities were there as expected.
We spent most of our time at the owners club (that's like a 5 minutes drive from the house) in the pools or playing tennis (plenty of other stuff to do there too)
The owners are great people, easy to communicate with and really friendly. We didn't have the pleasure of meeting them this time around (we did back in 2014), but we have been in touch via email.
I would recommend this property to anybody looking for a getaway in the Galena area.

We are 3 sisters from different parts of the country, and we all met for a vacation in Galena, Illinois (somewhere none of us have ever been). We all LOVED the townhouse and the town. This home was clean, secluded, and beautiful. It was stocked with about anything you could need, and we prepared meals there using some of the many condiments they stock in the kitchen. When they say they have coffee, well, they have LOTS of coffee (and tea)! There is a small creek and trees with tons of birds and squirrels right off of the deck. We all highly recommend this townhome to anybody traveling to the Galena area. It isn't suitable for someone who has a problem with stairs, because the main living area is down a full flight of stairs. But it is perfect otherwise. I hope we can return soon.

This townhouse is impeccably clean with all the amenities one would need from shampoo to silverware......The serene area made for quiet cozy evenings just to relax and enjoy nature..The color changes made it extra beautiful (and we won $$ at the Mystic Casino in Dubuque ) ;) Thanks Jim and Jenny

“Perfect retreat location for a college roomies reunion”

person found this review helpful

This condo proved to be the perfect location for our college roommates reunion. Quiet, away from the crowds, yet just 10 minutes from downtown Galena's shopping and excellent restaurants. Accommodations were comfortable. Plenty of room for our group of three, with a cozy dining/living room for our gab sessions. We even opted to 'eat in' the second evening, because of the convenience and fully equipped kitchen. We also enjoyed the wild turkeys on the walking paths and the pair of raccoons that came up on the deck to say 'hello.'

Liked best: Beautiful location, well appointed condo.
Liked least: Didn't expect the winding country road access to the property. A little creepy when driving after dark.

“We loved the setting of this cabin or townhome.”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The place had everything that you could want. We brought most of our food and entertainment but forgot one thing. I called Jenny and asked her for help in finding what we left behind and she gave me directions for the General Store which had it. The pull out bed was very comfortable.

The only thing for us was all the stairs ( 66 yr olds}

A suggestion would be to screen in the deck due to the woods or make it an all season porch.
Very clean and easy to get to!

“Great family location!”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The owners really thought of everything! We had everything that we needed and then some. We forgot our shampoo, no worries there was shampoo available in the rental. This house is as described, clean, quiet, cozy and beautiful scenary on the way to downtown Galena, a short drive away. Comfortable beds and pillows and nice swimming pool for the kids. It was a very nice and relaxing getaway for our family.
