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

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
