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.

New Year's 2014 we stayed at a Lodge named Cabin Bluff in southern Georgia.....just north of the Florida/Ga border. It's 24,000 acres of private land operated as a corporate retreat but open to the public. The property is owned/operated by Mead Westvaco corp. You will stay in a finely appointed cabin (very nice), 3 meals a day, a private 6... More

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

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
