Wonderful Location and Charming Home

  • 5 of 5

Such a charming home and an awesome location in Galena. We brought our 11 1/2 year old lab and had a wonderful time. The home is supplied with everything you could need. Great communication with the owners. Would highly recommend!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Zoe and Aaron were very accommodating - allowing us an early check-in time. And although it is an older home, the inside upgrades were pretty nice. We were trying to find a location within walking distance to downtown and it really is about a 15 minute walk (fyi - you do have to take stairs to get there)

Cute and Cozy

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room to spread out. Good for 5 adults at most.

Clean and comfortable.

Good amount of kitchen supplies.

Close to Main Street but not an easy walk. Very hilly!

Would definitely return.

Cozy hillside cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Galena several times, usually staying in hotels or inns. Since we were bringing our adult kids this time, we researched homes. This was a simple and clean home--well maintained by the owners. Decent proximity to downtown, but with the hills, walking would not be ideal for everyone.

For the price, size and location, I would definitely recommend this to others looking to stay close to Main St at an affordable price. We would rent this house again if the opportunity arose.
