Go here this time of year because it is quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. Outstanding and helpful staff. Large pool and hot tub always perfect temperature, sauna, one bedroom units immaculate with full kitchen, laundry, jacuzzi, and fireplace in living area and bedroom.Relatively small resort and not real busy this time of year but picks up for the weekend.

From the moment I arrived, the staff was amazing! Both Courtney and Sandy were great! The 1 bedroom condo looked just like the pictures. All amenities advertised were included (fireplace, w/d, whirlpool jacuzzi, etc.) Even down to providing stemware, flatware, and seasonings! A quick 15 minute drive from downtown Galena, where there are cute shops and restaurants. Quiet and serene....

Glenda is a beautiful area. Staff extremely helpful.We had a two bedroom unit. It was very nice. Had housekeeping come and clean the shower because it was not cleaned to my standards. Someone came immediately and cleaned it again. The carpet was not vacuum properly but I decided to vacuum it myself. The master's bedroom mattress was too soft for...

Very nice quiet location. The staff was very friendly and helpful with questions about the area. The rooms were very clean and modern. No restaurant on site but close enough to town where there are many good choices.

Generous 3 star rating. A week in Galena, Illinois - booked a special getaway with my wife. Studio apts here are a notch better than dorm rooms; $100 a night is NOT a bargain. Postage-stamp-sized Murphy Bed, confusing WIFI, minimal amenities, etc. You can see the toilet directly from the couch. No food or lounge. 6+ miles from Galena. There's...

We have stayed at this hotel twice, once in October 2014 during the fall and the beginning of December 2016. The first time we stayed our room smelled a bit like pancake syrup which was a bit disappointing but the property has a nice location, great staff and great rooms and we came back anyway. First, the hotel is about...

We were guests of another couple in a two bedroom suite. Our bedroom held two very comfortable twin beds and a night stand. There was a double sided fireplace between our room and the living room. The kitchen was well equipped and the living room furniture was comfortable. Our only issue was with the lights in the second bedroom. There...

We enjoyed the stay. Room was clean and well laid out. Staff was very courteous. Only downside was room above had children running, to be expected of small ones, but adults footsteps were loud too, plus vacuumingr several times per day was a bit distracting. Couldn't hear a peep next door but sounds above were very loud.
