An older home, wonderful walk downtown, responsive owners, perfect retreat with our dad.

  • 4 of 5

We brought our elderly, but chipper, father to Galena, and needed a bed and bath on the main floor. This house fit our needs perfectly. Nice, large kitchen, good sized dining room table, a fabulous walk to downtown for us younger set. Comfy living room. The beds and linens were very comfortable.

It’s older, well worn, but very clean. Zoe was awesome, very receptive and responsive to needs. We enjoyed the restaurants, but also cooked a lot, the kitchen had everything we needed.

We will return because of Zoe and location. A wonderful winter retreat for us.

Quaint and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The home is old-but cozy and perfect for a small group. Very clean and stocked with all the supplies you’d need. Downtown Galena is a short walk. There’s a really nice neighbourhood bar called Dillon’s that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner-literally a 3 minute walk from the house! They’re friendly, have COLD beer and delicious pizza.

Aaron and Zoe keep a hidden gem in Galena-you should check it out!
