I found my stay here to be refreshing and quiet peaceful. I loved the rustic feel of the place I didn't want or need a 5 star hotel. The accommodations were more then comfortable. It was clean and quiet. Loved the fact that there was a picnic table area and fire pit by each cabin. Yes the water was rusty... More

There should not be a single positive review for the Galena Log Cabin Getaway. Like my subject line suggests, you might as well set your money on fire. I feel as if I have been robbed and all of my attempts to speak to the owners regarding my stay have been ignored. I paid over $400 for 2 nights....the worst... More

This is truly a wonderful place. If you are looking for a 5-star hotel spa then this is not the place for you. If you are looking for charm, character, peace and quiet without the busy buzz-like atmosphere of a a huge resort, these cabins would be quite therapeutic. It is similar to going camping in the great outdoors with... More

Like the other travelers who stayed in the Franklin cabin, we were terribly disappointed and kind of skeezed out. The office looks like a shack in a scary movie, I stayed in the car with the doors locked ready to dial 911 in case my husband didn't make it back! Our cabin was next to the one the owners use....

Two friends invited us up during their Valentine’s Weekend spent skiing on Chestnut Mountain, they chose this because it had an additional bed on the second floor, plus allowed dogs and was more spacious than other options. We arrived and were only there for a short while before skiing, but from what we saw, it was an adorable rustic getaway,... More

We wanted a quick get away for Thanksgiving, and my teenage daughter was not keen on the trip. The promise of friendly Alpacas on the property was the perfect thing to get here interested in the trip. The other thing I have promised her is that whenever possible, she gets her own sleeping area. The log cabins seemed just the... More

As promised, our keys were tacked to a cork board on the office door, however, because there was no sign, we blew by the office and had to turn around and look for it. The office was shabby and in disrepair. The grounds were overgrown and cluttered. Upon arriving at the cabin, I was disappointed. The door skin was peeling... More

We love log cabins and were very much looking forward to our stay. We specifically chose to stay here because of the fireplace and whirlpool tub. Unfortunately, we couldn't use the whirlpool tub because the water wasn't warm enough and it was extremely discolored due to iron concentration in the water, as well as quite visible "iron-eating bacteria" added, which...

We decided to stay at the Galena Log Cabins on our visit to Galena because we thought the kids would get a kick out of sleeping in a log cabin. Check-in was very easy at the "office" and we stayed in the Adams cabin. Our first impression was "wow, this is VERY rustic" (said with concern) as we looked from... More
