We loved our anniversary trip to Hawk Valley Retreat. Our cottage was comfortable with all the right amenities and our hosts were so hospitable and gracious. We highly recommend having dinner in your room but don't plan to eat much that day. The portions were SO generous. We had a wonderful time!

When deciding where to stay for our honeymoon, we wanted something more personal than a nice hotel room, so we chose a Bed and Breakfast. We did a LOT of searching for the right one and were not disappointed with Hawk Valley. It is so unique in the fact that they have rooms in the main house, but also have... More

We loved our brief visit to Hawk Valley. It's only a 3 hour car trip from Chicago, but it feels like a completely different part of the country. The cottages of Hawk Valley are surrounded by rolling hills and farmland. There are no golden arches on the horizon. In fact the car ride in had us meandering past historic buildings,... More

We loved having you and it isn't everyone that gets to meet the beagle from down the street. Glad that your cottage provided you with a home away from home feeling. Look forward to seeing you again. Wendy and Hal More

My better half and I needed a couple days to decompress after a hectic summer, and Hawk Valley was an affordable option. Aside from the well kept property, wildlife, and accommodations Hal and Wendy were personable and knowledgable on the Galena area. If you want seclusion with top notch service in a friendly atmosphere look no further.

We won a this getaway and it was a great break from the busy hurried life we live in Chicago. The Stars out there are beautiful. Mornings were even better with the terrific breakfast and great hosts. We will be back especially this last weekend for the Halloween parade. The winery's are the best bonus.

Wendy & Hal are terrific! It was so hard for us to leave after a weekend of waking up to the incredible views, serene atmosphere, and delicious breakfasts provided by Hawk Valley. It was my girlfriend's first trip to Galena and the whole experience left her floored. We were debating on whether or not to stay at a hotel in... More

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
