Cozy, comfortable home with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

My entire family loved staying here. Not only was there enough space for us all to comfortably stay, but the house was well stocked with everything we might need. We loved the screened in porch. The bedding, towels, kitchen supplies were all high quality and definitely didn’t give you that feel that hotels often do with cheap items being provided. This felt like a home and we enjoyed our stay very much.

The house is very close to the owners club, which would be great for anyone who planned to use those amenities. While we did not get time to do so, we were excited to have the option so close by.

George was wonderfully helpful and thorough in staying in touch and answered all our questions before we even had to ask.

Our only critique of the property is that it was a little dusty and that it would have been nice to have a few extra towels. Also, because no one was staying in the house right before us, it was 80 degrees inside when we arrived. While the air works great, it took hours to cool down the house enough to be comfortable. While this can’t be avoided, it’s something to be aware of as guests checking in during these hot, humid summer months.

Overall, great experience. We would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was wonderful. There were some housekeeping issues though. We contacted owners on day one and they were very helpful. I will say that there were other cleaning issues as the days went on. Dirty dishes and pots and pans in cabinets and lots of dusty areas in the home. We chose to just rewash them before using instead of calling owners again during the Thanksgiving holidays. I would just suggest maybe a new cleaning service. Other than that it was a great home for a family with outdoor space for the kids to play. We’d definitely stay again!

Owner's Response: I am always glad to receive feedback. I am sorry some of the feedback was not good. I forwarded this email to the cleaning service. They are also glad to received email, good or bad. We went over the email and can't imagine how this happened. The manager is going to share this email with all of her cleaning staff and make sure something like this never happens again.

Property was secluded which was nice and the owner provided good instructions.

  • 4 of 5

Overall very nice property in a beautiful setting. There were a few issues with regards to cleanliness but we reported these to the owner as we felt we would want to be aware if the property was ours. Well stocked kitchen for making meals and comfortable beds to sleep eight. A few more seats in the living area would be nice so everyone could enjoy the one television comfortably together. The deck and screened-in porch were nice spaces...our kids wished that there had been a fire pit. We enjoyed the pool table...not sure why another group said the space was inadequate to play as this wasn't our experience. A short distance to downtown Galena but well worth the drive!
