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

My husband and I have never stayed at a bed and breakfast before so we were not quite sure what to expect...we were pleasantly surprised! I loved the coziness of staying in the main house and felt like I was part of their family! Wendy was very accommodating after forgetting my brush at home! Lol...the town was beautiful as well...

My husband and I have been coming to Galena on an annual basis for the last 16 years and have stayed at several places in the Galena area. We decided to stay somewhere different this year and noticed all the good reviews of Hawk Valley Retreat on Trip Advisor. While we have liked all the places we have stayed, Hawk... More

Hawk Valley Retreat is several miles outside the city of Galena. It is a beautiful, restful, homey place. Our bedroom was very well decorated; the bed was very comfortable, and the room was large. I was especially pleased that our hostess made me a gluten-free pancake and sausage breakfast that was really good. They were welcoming and accommodating.

My sister and I recently stayed at Hawk Valley for a sister's weekend. Our hosts, Wendy and Hal are very welcoming and have created a peaceful and lovely B&B / Retreat. Rooms have a private entrance, breakfasts are hearty and delicious and the vast grounds have a little pond, a gazebo and the lawn is very well kept. Only minutes... More

We hadn't been to Galena for a few years and decided to try a different B&B. We loved our stay at Hawk Valley Retreat. We stayed in a room rather than a cabin. My husband likes lots of pillows so he was in pillow heaven in the meadow room. We spent some leisurely mornings enjoying the view from the porch... More

We stayed at Hawk Valley with my mother-in-law, who needs a handicap friendly place, and my sister-in-law, who was celebrating her 50th birthday. Hal and Wendy were terrific and helped us with a special cookout for the birthday celebration. The breakfast they served each morning was outstanding as well. This place was perfect because it was close enough to Galena... More

For those of you familiar with the Highpointers, we travel around the US seeking to ascend to the highest point in every state. You've got everything from world class mountain climbs to stepping out of your car on a the hillcrest of a street. Anyway, I've topped out on 48 of the 50 state highpoints now, and it turns out...
