We had a group on 8 people and we had a wonderful stay. Everything was perfect. Accommodations were excellent. Kitchen was great for cooking meals (baking dishes, pizza pan, utensils, etc. We would definitely book again.
We have very good vacations!
Great house. We stayed with 5 other couples. Plenty of room to gather and relax. Close to downtown Galena.
The property was great! Bugs are bad, though, so I would suggest looking into fogging.
At the end of the road, surrounded by green nature, totally secluded, dead end of Galena Territory. The house big and has very unique and unique decorations, wooden table, chairs, original fireplace. Everybody in my group liked its atmosphere. Bedroom furniture is oldish but bedrooms are clean with no dust. Shining bathrooms.
We had a wonderful weekend in the Galena Territory. The house comfortably slept all 11 of the guests for the entire weekend and we will most certainly look to stay again if we find ourselves back in Galena, IL. We also took advantage of the access to the basketball courts and pontoon rentals and both experiences were great. I highly recommend David's home -- especially if you are looking for a tranquil experience.
Perfect property for our large group, did have some noise as there is outside road construction going on, but due to muggy weather we spent our time inside.
We found the property to be just as we enjoyed it last summer! Fantastic weekend!
We had a wonderful family weekend at this property. The house and adjoining coach house were spacious, comfortable, clean, and well-stocked with meal prep items. We found games to play and enjoyed socializing on the screen porch despite the rainy weather. We definitely would choose to stay again!
We celebrated Christmas with our families. The priest was very large and easily accommodated 15 people. The carriage house was great and we all had fun playing pool and air hockey. The hot tub was a nice way to end the day. We went to the owners club several times to work out, shoot hoops and plat games. David was super easy to work with and made us all feel at home. I look forward to a future stay!!!
