Reviewer Comments:

Chose this house because of the wonderful fact it had 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. I thought it would be perfect for 4 couples. We did have a wonderful time being together but unfortunately the house needs updating. The non-covered porch was unusable due to rotting boards. The list of needed maintenance items is long

Owner's Response: This house has great spaces, large rooms and also great outdoor spaces. We will be inspecting the boards on the back deck to see what the issue is. There is a screened in porch, front porch and open area outside down below to enjoy as well. We hope to find out more from this guest so we can address any issues, unfortunately they did not contact us during their stay so we could not attempt to resolve any issues during their stay. Please don't hesitate to call us anytime during your stay!

Reviewer Comments:

We were somewhat disappointed with this vacation rental. The square footage and layout of the home were nice. There was ample room for 8 adults. The home itself is nice however some of the areas were neglected in cleanliness and upkeep. A day with a maintenance man and a good cleaning crew could make this home amazing. The lower level outdoor area was unusable for us because the plastic lawn chairs, and the patio were very dirty and had not been cleaned in quite some time. The fire pit leg was broken off and unusable. The bed linens were uncomfortable, very poor quality and very worn, definitely in need of replacing and upgrading a notch. The beds themselves were very comfortable and the quality of all of the furniture was great. There were many ants on the kitchen counters that we were told had been sprayed for prior to our arrival. We spoke with management several times during our stay and we felt Abby was attentive but unable to make changes for our stay. She did send assistance for a television problem. This home has the potential to be wonderful. It just needs a little bit more thorough cleaning and some maintenance and upkeep. The condition of the home seems somewhat neglected but met our needs for the weekend we were there.

Owner's Response: Our Concord home is an amazing place! When visiting please remember that the home is located in a very wooded area in the middle of a place we all love in the Galena Territory. This means during inclement weather leaves and dirt are present as well as insects, etc. The Concord home is very popular and far from neglected. Our homes are serviced monthly by a pest control service and our maintenance and housekeeping groups service all of the homes on a regular basis. We agree the fire pit had a broken leg, however still usable as a basin but has since been replaced. We update the bed linens on a rotational basis and we agree the beds are comfortable and that the home affords a great background and big space for our guests. If you have issues with tv service, or wifi or anything else during your stay please do not hesitate to contact us. Our goal is for you to have an amazing stay and we will do whatever we can to make sure that happens.

Reviewer Comments:

We were pleased with the accommodations for 8 Adults. Everyone was able to have their own bedroom and restroom. The common areas had enough seating for all 8 Adults. Only negative is the parking is limited and at the bottom of a steep incline. You have to either enter through the basement or climb a hill for access to main level front door.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a fantastic stay on Concord Ct. The home was beautiful and the communication was awesome. Any questions we had were answered immediately, and it was a very smooth process for getting in and out. The distance from downtown Galena was perfect. It was a nice, short drive, but still allowed my entire family to be together in one place. Everyone had a wonderful time. As my husband and I gathered everyone, we offered to take the fold out couch in the basement. Honestly, I would recommend keeping the couch unfolded and sleeping on the couch part itself if you want to save your back. Everyone who slept in beds were all VERY comfortable.

Reviewer Comments:

It was perfect!! the only thing is that it said 10 guests could sleep there and to be honest, I don't see how 2 other people could have fit in there. There were no blankets for the couch. Other than that, it was really good!! (luckily we were 8 people and not 10)

Owner's Response: This is a 4 bedroom home that sleeps 8 in beds however the occupancy is 10. This means you can opt to bring an air mattress, sleeping bag, etc for your extra 2. Most homes in the Territory are rated 2 people per bedroom plus an extra 2. We always suggest to bring extra towels, pillows and blankets for your comfort!

Reviewer Comments:

Several members of our family gathered to celebrate one of our birthdays. We enjoyed breakfasts and dinners in the house. The house is roomy and bright. The kitchen was well appointed. We loved the log fireplace and staying up late together, watching TV. and spent the days in town. We love Galena - it's the perfect mix of history and outdoor beauty. Some of us shopped. Some went to historical places. Some went skiing at nearby Chestnut.

Location

So much to enjoy in Galena, IL. Rolling hills, scenic roads and historic charm revitalize the spirit. Inspired by nature and overlooking the banks of the Galena River, Main Street embraces a simpler time. You'll create cherished memories spending time together relaxing and unwinding.
