We had a great time spending the weekend here! The house and guest house had plenty of room for activities for all, including pool table, air hockey, hot tub, and bonfire. The closed in porch was great for when it got a bit chilly outside.

Very convenient comfortable and relaxing me and my guests really enjoyed and hated to leave!!

Everything was as stated; place was in beautiful location, hot tub and accessories were all working. Owners Club use was a bit difficult because of Covid rules, but worked through them well with owner. Dave was excellent and did his best to help us out with scheduling at the club. Overall, the family gave it 5 out of 5 for a great time away from it all!!!! Thanks Dave!

We were overall very happy with the house and it’s unique layout offering bathrooms and patios for every bedroom and different areas to relax.

Had a great time renting this property for a friends bachelor party. Very nice main house and second house equipped with pool table and other games. Comfortably slept 12 of us between the two houses. Very easy Check-in/Check-out process.

Set away from civilization, this beautiful place completely blew our minds . While some of the hardware could use a bit of an upgrade - we actually believed everything blended perfectly giving it a status of a place with a soul . We loved every minute of it, including my daughter making friends with two huge snapping turtles in the pond :-) Will definitely come back

We enjoyed our stay at this property a great deal. Beautiful and isolated location provide a chance to enjoy the rolling hills of NW Illinois and the colors of fall. All amenities as promised. We were a collection of adults to include a few in their 80’s and the configuration of the main house provided for those with limited mobility – as well as the balance of the group who leveraged the bedrooms on the lower lever and the adjacent guest house. The main floor grand room was an awesome space for 12 family members to hang out as a family. The large table and screened in porch served us very well. We especially enjoyed the décor, Kitchen configuration and well stocked kitchen and eating utensils, firepit, game room, and all the stars we could see at night!

Everything was fabulous. Beautiful surroundings. Would have liked to see a refrigerator in the area above the garage. Otherwise, it was great!

After doing a lot of research on cabins near Galena for a weekend getaway with friends, we ended up choosing this cabin, and it was the best decision we could've made! It has a ton of great amenities and space to accommodate just about any group of people, and is a short 15 min drive from Galena, which is a great town to take a walk and look around in. The property managers were easy to get a hold of and made the process a breeze, thus, I highly recommend this spot for anyone looking to do a weekend getaway and visit Galena!

The cabin and property are a great find in a beautiful area of Illinois. Down a little gravel drive its almost completely secluded in trees on a steep hillside. The cabin is welcoming and homey inside as well as roomy. With 2 bedrooms and a game room outside we had ample room for our sizeable family. Really enjoyed the stay. Communication from the owner was rather poor though. I had to make repeated requests to book before he finally even looked at it. On the day before we arrived I tried contacting him again for details on check-in and so forth. The door was unlocked upon arrival but I never did get a reply from him. So overall a great stay. We were all very happy with th accuracy of th listing.
