The place is in a nice, quiet area. The log cabins are a nice place to visit with your dog. We went with some friends, so our cabins were right next to each other, so it was convenient to see each other and meet up. The Apalcas were so cute! It is a laid back place. They provide nice little... More

Really neat setting of rustic looking log cabins with all the modern conveniences inside. Nicely decorated and very comfortable. Just a short distance from some to the most beautiful bluffs and natural areas. It is very dog friendly (we brought our 4). They loved all the on site hiking and short car trips to areas of interest. The Netzel family... More

A delightful rustic log cabin in a country setting. Our family has been going there for years and we always look forward to going back. There is so much to do. Galena is just a few miles away. We enjoy shopping in downtown Galena, and then coming back to the cabin to relax and unwind. We enjoy hiking on trails... More

We stayed here from March 26 - 28, 2015. A short Spring Break getaway. The cabins were very nice. The owner Frank, Ruth, and Johathan were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the Alpacas. I think they got fat after our stay because we fed them so much food (picked grass around the area, fruits, etc.) We even had a... More

Since the weather was starting to thaw out after my first winter living in the Midwest, my fiancee and I booked a last minute weekend getaway at GLCG. If you don't want to read a review longer than 200 characters, simply put, we had a great time. The cabins are easy to locate, we arrived quite late on the Friday... More

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...
