We just returned from a pre-Christmas 3day trip to Chestnut Mountain Resort outside of Galena, IL. This mid-west resort was homey and perfect for our family of four who lives about 6 hours away. If you are looking for a middle class resort that caters to beginning skiers but can also be enjoyable for more advanced skiers, this is your... More

We stayed at the Chestnut Mountain Resort on Thanksgiving eve and night. It happened to coincide with their preparations for the opening of skiing season. Although a dusting of snow covered the landscape visible for miles from our very spacious room, the resort was also running its snow machines non-stop to get a base ready for the Thanksgiving weekend skiers...

stayed two nights at this ski resort on their off season for our wedding anniversary. The room rate was low so we were not expecting much we were very much impressed by this place. Front desk ladies were very nice and accommodating. We reserved a second room for my sister and husband which were only staying for one night. They... More

This hotel is a ski resort overlooking the Mississippi River about 17 miles out of quaint step-back-in-time Galena. It's great to go go off season for a low cost room with an awesome view of the river. Make sure you request a river view or you might get the awesome parking lot. The restaurants located in the facility were very... More

My husband and I have traveled to this resort several times. Galena is our favorite getaway only being about a 3 hour drive. We love the windy, scenic drive to the resort. The resort itself is very charming with friendly staff. I love the breakfast buffet and the great view in the morning. We have stayed in the remodeled half... More

The rooms were well furnished and very spacious. The furnishings were dated but were in great shape and the beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were very nice sized too. The view from our window was beautiful and relaxing. We did not eat there or do any of the activities, so we can not comment on them. Check in was... More

My wife and I spent the weekend (10/3-10/5) here and thoroughly enjoyed the area. First, trust your GPS to get you there. We used the Blanding Rd, Hanover, IL address and it took us directly there, but you might think you're lost or on the wrong road. It's about 8 miles of 2 lane, twisting, hilly turns, but you're on...

This was our first time at Chestnut Mountain and overall it was a good time, weather was not as warm as we might have liked but we did get some time to walk the trails. The pool and hot tub came in handy and the Summit Bar for food and drink. You get a great view of the Ski Area... More

My mother loved this place and brought my sister and I many times and now we bring our kids and grandkids. This year we traveled with a Groupon. $59.00 +tax per night. Being a long time customer I...
