We were looking for a great place to just chill for a weekend. It had been a long time since just the two of us had had this chance. Hawk Valley gave us exactly what we needed. My back round is in home building and inspection. I always dread what I may see that others may have missed. What we... More

Hal and Wendi were awesome as always. It was our third time there, and we plan on returning every year! Rooms clean, awesome breakfast, beautiful area! The cottages are private and serene. Perfect for a getaway weekend!

My daughter and I stayed here for a mother/daughter weekend getaway before her wedding. We stayed in the main house. The rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and serene. Hal and Wendy were wonderful and made you feel at home. I really enjoyed our conversations with them. The breakfasts they prepared were delicious. I cannot...

What a wonderful place. Close enough to Galena that you can get there in a short drive, but out of the way in a peaceful spot of the country so you don't feel like your surrounded with the bustle. The grounds are huge and well-maintained. Great for a morning walk. When it's just you, the birds and a few distant... More

The only negative associated with Hawk Valley Retreat is.....we cannot get there often enough! Found it on a google search about 5 years ago and we both agree it is the perfect quick getaway destination for us. The owners Hal and Wendy always make guests feel welcomed and like part of their family. Be prepared for an awesome breakfast and... More

What a great place! We would definitely come back. So peaceful and quiet. Top notch accomodations and food! We loved the porch swing where I could sit and read a book and listen to the cows moo. We saw a hot air balloon right over our cottage! We loved it!!

I stayed in one of the 3 bedrooms with a private shower. Very nice room! Breakfast was filling and so delicious. There are nice walks you can take around their land in the day and a nice deck to sit at night and see the unbelievable stars. The hosts are very nice with easy check in and will see to... More

My husband and I planned an overnight in Galena on our way to Chicago. We really didn't anticipate the beautiful and bucolic setting we had selected when we chose to stay at Hawk Valley B and B. We loved Galena, our time on the beautiful deck outside our room, and the excellent dinner at Fried Green Tomatoes as recommended by... More

If you want a completely relaxing and stress-free wedding day, then take advantage of their elopement package. I let Wendy and Hal do everything for our wedding day and it was amazing. (All we had to to was get the license from the county clerk the day before.) The Fox Glen cottage is spacious and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful... More

I have said this before, but I believe it bears repeating...elopements are such happy events you can't help but smile when you think of them. We wish you many, many years of happiness and hope that you will continue to look back on this time with fond memories.... More
