Wonderful!

Aaron and Zoe were extremely kind, responsive, and courteous hosts from the beginning. Their place is very comfortable and clean. We had a wonderful stay for our mom's birthday. Thanks Aaron and Zoe!

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.

Cute house VERY Clean.

  • 4 of 5

I would have given 5 stars had there been a patio and firepit. Other than that we were really just looking for a place to sleep for the most part. The house remained very cool with the little window air conditioners and it was a very hot weekend. We saw deer hanging out in the side yard and walking around in the neighborhood. The beds smelled so fresh and clean when we got in them. I will definitely stay here again. Please think about that firepit.... :)

Great place really close to Galenas strip.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a girls family weekend. We had 6 ladies and a baby. We loved the house. The air was on when we arrived. It was very clean and well taken care of. It's so close to the main strip we probably could have walked there. The hosts were great and answered all of our questions, they even sent us a link for things going on during the weekend. We hope to make this an annual trip and would definitely stay here again
