Clean, not fancy but very comfortable rustic log cabin in a peaceful area.We were so happy to find a dog-friendly get away in Galena. The gas fireplace added to the cozy feel of the cabin. The night sky was amazingly clear and Frank's knowledge of the cosmos was helpful for us novices. The Alpacas were interesting and very photogenic. It... More

Rustic but charming, cozy original built log cabins set in quiet, rustic area. Beautiful night ski. Cabin very clean, with fireplace, downstairs bedroom and sitting area, and neat loft bedroom. Owners couldn't have been more helpful. Alpacas fun to see and loved to be fed apples as snack. Continental breakfast delivered in cute basket in evening for next morning. Surprise... More

Do not expect the Ritz here. Instead, be assured you will find an amazing rustic log cabin retreat that has comfy beds, clean sheets, fireplaces and so much more. No noisy traffic and chaos, just peace and quite and alpacas. Also, the cabins are about a 10 mins drive to downtown Galena. This place is perfect.

We loved the rustic log cabins. It felt as if we were transported back in time. The fireplace was inviting after a day of skiing. The cabin was set up perfectly for a family or girls trip, with the loft providing a separate sleeping space. The alpacas were adorable and the owners Frank & Ruth were very hospitable. I plan...

As a family of 5 with grown kids and a small dog, we found our Galena Cabin Getaway to be endearingly rustic and cozy. It is a perfect place for those looking for a quaint vacation space close to nature. The cabins border an Alpaca farm, which adds to its charm. The local trails were scenic and beautiful, as this...

Rustic log cabins with cozy fireplace and cute alpacas. Would like to come back for hiking. Stars at night were spectacular. Bathrooms clean but shower/ tub needs some updates. ************************************

Rustic but very charming, family oriented facility. Don't expect a fancy lobby with all the amenities of a full scale hotel. If you're looking for a quiet place out of the way this is it. The owners cannot do enough to make your visit more comfortable. My husband, son, and I stayed over the Thanksgiving week-end and totally enjoyed the... More

We had come to Galena for several days for a wonderful friends weekend and when circumstances beyond our control forced us to find new lodgings - the information center found us a place here for two nights. The owners were pleasant and our cabin was clean, but very tight for four people and we all felt that this was very... More

This charming place has a special place in our heart. From the alpaca, the quiet starry nights, bonfires with smores, to the cozy rustic cabins...this place is special to us. It was the location of my first weekend getaway with my wife, the site of my proposal, and now my 2 year old daughters favorite place to go feed the... More

Glad we only wasted one nights worth here. Buggy! Crack around door let's the bugs sleep with you. Fireplace not available May through September which you find out after arriving. The waters delicious metal taste sticks to you like stink on a skunk. The cabins are secluded from town but not from each other. Didn't go near the hot tub,... More
