Great house...will stay again.
Good experience overall
Fall is spectacular in the Galena Territories. This home was a great place to enjoy the beauty.
House needs improvements
We DID enjoy our stay. It was much better than staying in a hotel/motel. Our family was able to be together in a comfortable surrounding.
We owned a rental property for several years, so I am probably more aware of items that need fixing / improving. I have listed these items below, only to make you aware of them.
Below we have included photos of some of items that should be addressed:
Cups from the dishwasher were not clean. We were able to remove the coffee stains with elbow grease.
Plastic cup from the dishwasher still had lipstick on the edge. We removed by hand washing. (We did NOT use the dishwasher during our stay)
The bottom of the dishwasher had a lot of [ rust ? ] flakes. Did not remove, as we wanted housekeeping to see. These flakes can easily be removed with a dishcloth.
Queen bedroom - electric outlet cover is missing. (Maintenance did not have a cover to fix it )
The horizontal blinds on several windows have not been adjusted to the length. (This is an easy fix and would improve the look)
Master Bathroom - the GFCI outlet did not work. (Maintenance fixed the day we called)
Master Bathroom - floor vent is the wrong size, does not lay flat.
Master Bedroom - vertical blinds could slide open, but the slats do not work. (Maintenance said they need to be replaced)
Twin Bedroom - slat needed nut and bolt - inner spring fell through the frame. (Maintenance fixed)
Kitchen wall clock not working - might need a battery
Kitchen track light - one bulb not working
Refrigerator door is hinged on the right side. It should be hinged on the left side, making it easier to place items from the fridge on the counter.
The lower kitchen cabinet (left of stove) - the bottom shelf appears to have fallen through the frame.
Kitchen Island cabinet - kick plate is broken or missing.
Lower Level Bathroom - wallpaper around the shower. This area could be painted and would look nicer.
We could not get the fireplace to work. We found the ON / OFF knob, but nothing happened.
We have pictures-if that would be helpful.
Thank you for reviewing the above. I hope it will be helpful.
The location is great. It’s on a quiet street but close to a shortcut road into town and easy access to the general store, the owners’s club, and all of the golf courses. Although it’s an older home, some updates have been made with new flooring and carpet. The home was very functional overall and accommodated our needs.
shopping in Galena
The INSIDE of the house was so nice. The outside--deck and sidewalks--not so much. It was a very interesting structure. I liked it a lot. The only drawback was coming into the upper level. My mother had a difficult time with the stairs. I saw nowhere in the ad that the entry was on the upper level. I do recommend this house to others who can do the steps.
Lovely wooded location close to Galena
My sisters and I had an enjoyable week. We got a call saying we could come early to avoid a snow storm and had a microwar
My sisters and I had an enjoyable week in this home. The manager was very considerate, allowing us to come early to avoid bad weather and delivering a microwave after we asked for one. There is everything you could need including a deck and screened porch. We found the beds to be a little firm. The main living area is on the lower level so stairs are a consideration. The home was beautifully decorated and very clean.
