Thanks for asking. Besides the cool weather, everything was perfect. Both Houses (2 and Fore Augusta) were as advertised and met our needs. We enjoyed our time and would consider returning when time permits.

Reviewer Comments:

Augusta Fore was absolutely amazing! The house was beautiful and well kept. the enclosed patio as an added bonus! We didn't have to worry about running out of dishes. They had everything from serving dishes to beautiful wine glasses. The bedrooms were super cozy! I will be going back next year and the year after! Thank you to Abbey, who made the rental process easy! Thank you to the owners for opening your home to us! I highly recommend this vacation home to anyone that wants to get away but still have the comforts of home!

This home is beautiful and looks just like the pictures! Lots of space for women's weekend. Great location. About a 15 minute walk to either the Eagle Ridge Resort for spa treatments and the pool at the owner's facility. The house was very clean. the management was very easy to work with. All questions were answered quickly. I would recommend this house to friends and family.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed in the Fore Augusta for Labor Day weekend, and had a wonderful time. We had four couples who all enjoyed their luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms. The decor was relaxing, and comfortable. The screen porch was especially wonderful, with plenty of seating and room to spare! We adored the kitchen - loaded with amenities and all the basics as well. The only negative point was that the jets in the hot tub began to leak, and didn't spray during our stay. The heat worked, but we were disappointed that the jets weren't working. Upon reporting this to the agent, the owners did give us a $50 credit, but we would have preferred that the hot tub worked, as that was one of the reasons we chose this home. All in all, we would stay here again, provided the hot tub was fixed.

Reviewer Comments:

This is our second year staying at this house.We love the spaciousness and everyone has their own bedroom and bathroom. We were a little disappointed in the quality of the mattresses and cleanliness of the pillows in the two basement rooms. The rooms upstairs are great. We like the fact that the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, the screened in porch is great and it is located on a quiet street. There is a pool table in the basement and a small putting green, which was used almost every night.The few small changes we suggested would make this house a 5 star accommodation.

Location

This luxury five bedroom vacation home is located in the heart of the picturesque 6800-acre Galena Territory, a pristine area of abundant wildlife and rolling hills that stands apart from the normally flat landscape of Illinois. Within walking distance (although hilly) from the home is the Territory Owners Club facility, with a new indoor pool, a newly updated outdoor pool, game room, fitness center, basketball court, tennis courts and children's playground. Just a minute down the road our guests can fish or boat on the 220-acre private Lake Galena. Also just minutes from the home in the Galena Territory lies the Ridge Golf Club and Spa, boasting 63 holes of championship golf and a world class spa facility. The home borders one of the Territory's 40 miles of hiking trails, a great way to conveniently experience the beauty of the Territory up close. Just a short ride down Route 20 lies the historic city of Galena, a great destination for shopping and eating.

Other activities: boating, health/beauty spa, miniature golf, cross country skiing, basketball court, shopping, kayaking, wild life viewing, hot air ballooning

Golf: 3 options all very close by

Ski: Chestnut Mountain and Sundown Mountain both within minutes
