Description of the Galena vacation cabin rental
A wonderful, charming and relaxing location to take a break from life or to party it up. Walking distance is Lake Galena where you can rent a boat to cruise around, go fishing, or dock at random places and explore the forest. Fish (lots of it) from the peer or rent a boat, enjoy volleyball, soccer, basketball and tennis courts, as well as one of the best Golf courses in the world! Nearby is Galena town with its civil war-era charm, private wineries with wine tasting every day, local cheese makers, unique sauces, sweets, as well as antique stores. Fine selection of restaurants, from fancy French, Italian, to small town diners and burger joints (one literally called 'Burger Joint', its awesome!). About 20 minutes away is the Mississippi river and town of Dubuque. There you can find vegas-style casinos. This is a great destination for a family vacation, or just a friends getaway to nature. We can house up to 20 people in 2 houses.

Nice place but could use some updating

November 9, 2013

Very nice log home. Very spacious, open and quality finishes and a good location about 10 minutes from Galena and five minutes to the very impressive owners club. However for the rental price, we were pretty disappointed in the quality of the furnishings and there were some maintenance items that needed to be addressed. The decor of the home did not match the quality of the home's style and construction. The appliances and cooking supplies (pans/dishes/silverware) were not sufficient to accommodate the size of our group. (7 adults) We had to press in on the dishwasher to get it to start. We did not care for the beds, (memory foam), but 3 of the bedrooms were spacious and generally nice. The 4th bedroom was on the small size. The air conditioning unit did not seem to be sized right for the size of home as it never really seemed to cool down and the great room ceiling fan did not work. We did make the owners aware of some of the maintenance items (dressers falling apart and toilets running) and they assured us they would take care of those items and appreciated us letting them know. We would still encourage them to match the home's décor and furnishings to the quality and style of the home. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and our adult children enjoyed the hot tub and surroundings. The deck and screen porch were nice and the home is large enough too that everyone had plenty of room. The owners could improve the stay even more by updating the furnishings, décor, and matching these items to the quality and style of the home's construction.

We had a fabulous time last weekend in Galena due in large part to where we stayed. It was very roomy, clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. Thanks for an awesome time.

Owner's reply:

Glad you like it! Welcome back anytime.




Fraudulant rental

January 7, 2013

This is a fraudulent posting. I booked this property two months in advance and was provided with what seemed to be a legitimate rental agreement. A week before my arrival I could not contact the person I contracted with and learned it was all a scam. I recommend avoiding this property.

40th B-day Couples Weekend

October 18, 2012

The home was a cute log cabin in the Galena Territory. The house was nice for the 3 couples who stayed. There was a brand new stove and microwave which was great for cooking breakfast. The newer hot tub was also a nice addition. The master bath and full bathroom could use some updating. It was wonderful that we were able to rent this 4 bedroom home at a 3 bedroom price since that was all the space we needed. Overall we had a very nice stay and enjoyed viewing the fall foliage and wild turkeys roaming near the house.

Wonderful Home!

May 3, 2011

We had a wonderful time on our family weekend! The house was great, enough room for everyone. We were within walking distance of the lake, we even rented a pontoon boat one day. There were trails to hike on, beautiful scenery. All in all, it was a wonderful family retreat!

Galena get-a-way

December 28, 2010

This place was awsome. The Cabin was wonderfully set up and had almost everything you could of thought of. The washer and dryer came in handy as well. The sights were breath taking and the folks in Galena were charming. We will for sure go back and stay longer 3 night was definately not enough.
