This rental is fine...there's nothing particularly WRONG with it, but nothing great considering the price. That's about all we would say. The four of us who rented this townhouse have traveled a lot and stayed many places, including other rental houses in the Galena area. It is as advertised, and met our needs, so since we were late with finding a rental for our weekend together, we were OK with what we got. But here are some of our dissatisfactions... there is no DVD player and the cables for streaming didn't fit our laptop (we even tried to find a place we could buy some that fit, but would have had to go to Des Moines); the microwave is so old even we seniors couldn't figure it out; some fairly basic items just weren't available...soap for the showers, paper towels, Kleenex (there was one box in the living room), dish rags or sponges, good working clocks, a mixing bowl...we found the sheets to be about the cheapest possible, the towels were not very good, better lighting (there are floor lamps, but no bedside lamps at all); and what's there is just so BASIC we were disappointed.
Galena is a quaint historic town the perfect distance from Minneapolis/St Paul. The Summerhouse has everything you need and lies in a quiet country setting just a few miles outside of town. We enjoyed the swimming pool and found the workout studio and gym to be much larger than expected. If you want comfy, cozy, relaxing and convenient then this is the place to go. Highly recommend.
Clean, comfortable and convenient arrangements to access property with flexible time arrangements. Would definitely return.
