Great property, plenty of space, each bedroom has a bathroom. Hot tub was a huge hit!

  • 5 of 5

We took a family trip to Galena with (10) kids and friends ranging in age from 14 to 20. Our total group was (12) people. The master bedroom is on the main level, with the remaining 4 bedrooms on the lower level. Each of the 5 bedrooms has an attached bathroom with shower, which was awesome! There is also a sofa/sleeper on the lower level as well, which is how you arrive at the total sleeping space for 12 people.

The hot tub was a big hit with the kids as it got used numerous times. We visited in late December, but the cold did not detour anyone from going in. There were plenty of towels provided for both showers and the hot tub. I was impressed by how many there were.

The kitchen was well stocked with pans and utensils. There was plenty of space for group meals. I was surprised that little things like dishwasher soap, paper towels and coffee were provided. We did buy some additional garbage bags, but our group did create a lot of trash during our stay. The provided washer and dryer were used several times. Here too I was impressed that laundry soap was provided.

The clubhouse was awesome. We went there for an afternoon and played basketball in the gym for several hours. We did not see a map telling us how to get to the clubhouse as it is too far to walk. Ultimately we figured it out, but a map of the property would have helped a great deal.

A couple small tips. We checked out a little late on our last morning as we were slow getting everyone up and out. We did get hit with a charge to our security deposit as a result. Be sure to check out on time. Also, don't lose any of the cards for the clubhouse. We misplaced one and ending up finding it after we got home. We had to send it back via FedEx. It is worth the extra effort to keep close track of these during your stay.

All in all the property was great. We plan to stay again on our next trip to Galena!

great size for multiple family stay with all the needed household amenities, comfortable furnishing

  • 5 of 5

We had a slight snag with our early check in because of the late departure of the prior guests but the property owner responded immediately with a suitable resolution. The rest of our New Years stay went off with great success. We had 7 adults and 5 young children and never felt cramped. There was plenty of comfortable seating and a huge dining room table for meals, games and puzzles. We didn't use the sleeper sofa but the other 5 king size beds were deemed comfortable by all for the first time in any of my many multi-family overnight excursions. We packed extra cooking and backing wares only to return home unused thanks to the overly stocked kitchen.The fire place gave us some extra ambiance and the kids loved the foosball table. They may have liked the starry nights and indoor pool at the owners club even more. Thanks

Great weekend get away

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to all meet and celebrate our golden anniversary. Room for everyone and, most important, plenty of bathrooms. We spent the majority of time gathered around the large dining room table, we would love to come again in the summer to enjoy the porches. It was a great place for us

College girls reunion

  • 5 of 5

Overall was a great stay. Accommodated 12 ladies pretty comfortably, two got stuck on the couches, but they were comfy! Kitchen was a great set up, living room fit us all comfortably. Hot tub was a big hit, and it was very quiet in the neighborhood. Only had one hiccup in a broken coffee pot, so had to run into town but Stephen immediately responded to my message, reimbursed me, and was gracious enough to extend our check out time. Recommend bringing extra paper products if your group is large, and trash bags.. everything else they had us covered. This has been our favorite house thus far, and we already agreed on a weekend next year and will book again. If your looking for a great rental with great owners, look no further!

Perfect for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house (and the property next door) for an extended weekend. Twelve adults and ten kids fit perfectly into the two houses. It was nice to have king beds in each bedroom, rather than the typical array of queen and twin bunk beds that a lot of large rental properties always seem to have.

The Galena Ridge Territory had plenty activities to keep the kids entertained. We had great communication with the owner. He responded quickly to the couple of communications we had over the weekend. The house was well maintained and provisioned very appropriately. Almost every child expressed a desire to come back "Every Year", and we'll likely try to come back next year.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear that everyone wants to come back for more. We are already taking reservations for next year. We definitely want our guests to come back again as a family tradition. Let us know when we can make a reservation for you for next year. Make sure you remind us that you rented these houses previously.
