Nice location

  • 4 of 5

Cute home in nice location, where you can walk to main lodge and beyond. Home could use a little TLC and updating but otherwise functional (paint, etc).

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for me and my friends! There was definitely enough room for everyone to enjoy. The kitchen was fully stocked, even along with some extra spices to cook with. I would highly recommend staying here if you want to explore Galena or even the outskirts into Iowa. We took a day trip over the Maquoketa Caves State Park. It took us about 45 min and was totally worth it. This is the perfect location to be close to everything Galena has to offer. The only thing I can say that was bad, was that it didn't seem to have been cleaned before we arrived. There were pieces of candy on the floor in one of the bedrooms. Also a few dead bugs spread across the floors. Otherwise it was perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The bugs unfortunately come into the home with the doors opening and closing and usually meet their demise after our guest leave. Pest control also visits and during the spring when the home is not occupied as much as summer so they sometimes die after housekeeping has left the building. The piece of candy on the floor I cannot account for and will take it up with our caretaker. It is unusual for her to miss something like that but will bring it to her attention. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and I am sure the tip on the Maquoketa Caves will be enjoyed by others.

My friends and a took a trip up from Oklahoma to beautiful Galena for a wedding. After reading the reviews for this place, we decided to take a chance on it. I'm so glad we did! The place was perfect for us and had everything we needed for the weekend. There were even movies, which we enjoyed the day after the wedding (when we may have had a little too much to drink). The owner was so helpful, and even helped us out (via phone) when we got lost on our way in. We enjoyed our trip so much, we plan to make this our yearly "girl's weekend" trip and will DEFINITELY stay in this home again.
