My siblings and I gathered with our parent's for their 50th wedding anniversary. We rented two of the distinctive homes and had great accommodations. We were able to take advantage of the resort amenities and had a wonderful dinner at the Woodlands in a private room. There were plenty of activities to please each member of the family. The golf...

Eagle Ridge is a cute little area. Not new, so bathrooms felt a little old. They weren't dirty or anything, just not the greatest. Service is fine, rooms were clean, area is great! The pool and pool projector are pretty cool, tiny arcade, okay amenities.. the bar and restaurant in the hotel are pretty nice too. Overall, everything is above... More

My son recently got married in the Galena area. They actually stayed at the resort itself. The rehearsal dinner was held in a room at the resort overlooking the lake. It was such a beautiful setting! The bridal party girls all had their hair done at the spa/salon. Everyone looked beautiful! The staff was so friendly and accommodating. We actually... More

True-confessions first -- I'm not a golfer, but if I were, "wow." Anyway, this was my first stay at Eagle Ridge, and I was there to help lead a corporate retreat in one of the rental-homes on the property. I stayed in The Inn (hotel/lodge), and it was amazing itself. Service was exceptional, beautiful scenery, remote-yet-close to historic Galena for... More

Had a nice weekend stay at Eagle Ridge! We enjoyed our two BR two Bath house with a hot tub and screened in porch. Very relaxing sitting watching the World Cup and relaxing in the hot tub with a glass of wine. $100 extra a day for the hot tub feels a bit excessively pricey. Wish it had been sunnier.... More

We stayed here for an extended weekend getaway. It was pretty quiet which we liked, and there are some nice drives and one of the smallest farmers markets I've ever seen nearby. The only downside is that it's a bit of a drive to downtown Galena. Other than that, a good stay

Booked a room through booking.com for a last minute trip to Galena. Got a courtside room, two queen beds with balcony room. In past visits, I have booked condos/townhomes so this was the first time we stayed at the resort. The service desk for how busy it was seemed overwhelmed, not very professional and easily flustered. We got our room... More

The drive around Eagle Ridge is just beautyul, and if you are a golfer, I would recommend that you stay here and play a round or two of golf. The lodge is in the process of a huge renovation, and it will be really nice when completed. Workers are all over the lodge area every day, but did not disturb... More
