We nearly cancelled when we learned that our studio unit would have a Murphy bed, but we were pleasantly surprised when the bed was more comfortable than expected and the room larger than predicted. The big windows, balcony, and high ceilings helped open up the room, and we were very comfortable for a 4-night stay. Kitchen was small, but met... More

Nice clean room, bigger than I planned on, very pleasant staff, will stay here again. Will not even look at any other place. Tubs are so good I fell asleep in it. Movie rentals are very cheap, no blue ray.

We stayed over a weekend. We have driven by many times, but decided to stay this time. We were impressed. Beautiful, spacious rooms, great amenities. Very friendly staff. We had a room on the back side which overlooked a nice wooden area. Location is right along Highway 20, just East of Galena.

This is a beautiful property in a good location. We had a very nice two-bedroom condo overlooking the hill view. The location was quiet and about 5 or 6 miles outside of the town of Galena. There were fireplaces between the master bedroom and master bath and between the second bedroom and the living room. We used both fireplaces a... More

Overall this is a great resort! I am used to the Wyndham's that have activities so that was a disappointment. The rooms were wonderful with a warm fireplace and we had friend staying next door and they loved the room and the area as well. I plan to go back for skiing. The staff is EXTREMELY friendly and they welcomed... More

Everything you need for cooking is there. The water is not bad, its not brownish as some other review say. The view outside is nice, just make sure... More

This is an exceptionally nice place to stay in the Galena area. Very quiet and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back. The pool and hot tub was also great. The drive to Main St. takes about 10 minutes.
