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

This is a great place to get away for peace and quiet. It is a nice contrast to the hustle and bustle of downtown Galena. The cabins are very rustic, kind of like a fancy camping experience. The Alpacas were fun to watch and pet, very cute animals. The golden doodles were pretty frisky and got pretty excited any time... More

It is said on their website that visitors will notice that the stars hardly twinkle. I can attest to this claim. We went there for the Perseid meteor shower and indeed saw many meteors. The weather cooperated and there was no cloud at all the first night Indeed the sky was so clear and the stars really did not seem... More

If the cabin hadn't been $200 a night, I would have given a higher rating. We all enjoyed the alpacas, and the cabin was very cute and more spacious than a typical hotel room. However, there were dozens of hornets everywhere and 2 of us were stung. We had an issue with the coffee pot and when I approached the... More

I was looking for a place to escape to, get away from the everyday busy life. Relax in the country, enjoy the nature, sky, stars, quiet, etc. Galena Log Cabin Getaway was that & so much more. The cabins were absolutely beautiful, the rocking chairs & ottomans were so comfortable & if all that didn't help you relax then the... More
