“Got lucky with weather and accommodation.”
Reviewed 8 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Packed some amenities just in case but found everything available just as described. Got lucky with the weather (70's) except for one day when we limited a round to nine holes because of the chill. Courses were in beautiful shape and we almost had them all to ourselves. I guess most vacationers wait for the summer heat. Would return to Galena for the accommodation, the golf, and Fried Green Tomatoes. One son from D.C. flew into Dubuque to join us which was just a short drive away. And the parking was at the terminal door and free. Beats big city living.

“Very relaxing and had every thing we needed”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Our stay was great! Cozy little house with everything one would need for cooking in. Sheets, towels, blankets, even the dog bowls. Bbq only gets to about 300 degrees though. View from the deck after some leaves had fallen, water fall and lake. Great get away with our pup, walking trails, lots of stars, lots of birds, blue jays, hawks and even an Eagle. Great looking golf course.
We will definitely do it again next fall.

Thanks Rick!

“It worked”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Home was decently clean, but smelled of smokers. Worked perfectly for our young family. Was nothing too fancy.

Our house rules specify that our place is non-smoking. If someone smoked in our place prior to your visit we were unaware of it. We do have a wood burning fireplace and it is possible that a lingering smoke smell can exist if it had been used.

“Comfortable and quiet - just what we were looking for!”
Reviewed 27 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This two story, pet-friendly home just outside Galena was exactly what my wife and I wanted for a short excursion with our two dogs. Very accessible to both the natural beauty of the Mississippi River parks and the charm of Galena. Also a great place to just get away from the city.
