Excellent location in an older cottage

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, walking distance to town. It is an older home but it has all the amenities you need for a nice stay. Right up the hill is Knots A Problem, a great massage place, about five blocks down the hill is historic downtown Galena. Great place for a weekend getaway. Highly recommend. The owners were accommodating and easy to work with.

Galena is terrific

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed the hiking on the Galena River and Heritage trails. The home is a bit pricey for the amenities. In particular there is a choice between a comfortable bed upstairs and access to the bathroom downstairs. A new mattress would resolve the issue.

Otherwise everything else was fine and the town is very interesting.

Cute, clean, comfortable house in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I came to Galena for a girls' getaway and found this to be a comfortable little house conveniently located for walking to downtown and for a quick trip to the supermarket. Nice, newer kitchen appliances. Cute and very clean and located on a quiet street (very little traffic). Weather was very humid and in the upper 80s and low 90s while we were there, so we didn't walk around the beautiful historic neighborhood after doing so the first day. It's only about a 6 block walk to downtown Galena, but very hilly and steep - mostly downhill going there but uphill coming back - a good walk for cooler weather than we had. The rental fee was very fair. I would definitely stay here again.
