This may have once been a cool place to spend some time while in the Galena area. Spring or Summer might be a better time to visit, when there is less mud and the trees and grass have a chance to hide the trash that seems to be around pretty much everywhere. The cabins are falling into disrepair and our... More

I went here on a weekend trip with a few friends and it was great! I would recommend this place for sure. Few things you do need to know. There is no kitchen, just a microwave and mini fridge. There were 4 of us and we slept 2 to a bed, but one of the beds was a rather tight... More

We probably could have handled some of the older things and items not updated but the rusty water was not expected. We ended up buying bottle water the second day to wash and bathe in. The stains in the bathtub were gross but the water that came out was far worse.

The log cabins have a cozy, rustic flavor but with all the amenities (gas fireplace, small fridge & microwave, satellite TV, whirlpool tub with skylight). With the upstairs loft, the cabin could easily sleep four adults or a family with children. We loved being able to bring our dogs. The setting feels remote yet is close to Galena, Casper Bluff...

The place is in a nice, quiet area. The log cabins are a nice place to visit with your dog. We went with some friends, so our cabins were right next to each other, so it was convenient to see each other and meet up. The Apalcas were so cute! It is a laid back place. They provide nice little... More

Really neat setting of rustic looking log cabins with all the modern conveniences inside. Nicely decorated and very comfortable. Just a short distance from some to the most beautiful bluffs and natural areas. It is very dog friendly (we brought our 4). They loved all the on site hiking and short car trips to areas of interest. The Netzel family... More

A delightful rustic log cabin in a country setting. Our family has been going there for years and we always look forward to going back. There is so much to do. Galena is just a few miles away. We enjoy shopping in downtown Galena, and then coming back to the cabin to relax and unwind. We enjoy hiking on trails... More

We stayed here from March 26 - 28, 2015. A short Spring Break getaway. The cabins were very nice. The owner Frank, Ruth, and Johathan were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the Alpacas. I think they got fat after our stay because we fed them so much food (picked grass around the area, fruits, etc.) We even had a... More

Since the weather was starting to thaw out after my first winter living in the Midwest, my fiancee and I booked a last minute weekend getaway at GLCG. If you don't want to read a review longer than 200 characters, simply put, we had a great time. The cabins are easy to locate, we arrived quite late on the Friday... More

Clean, not fancy but very comfortable rustic log cabin in a peaceful area.We were so happy to find a dog-friendly get away in Galena. The gas fireplace added to the cozy feel of the cabin. The night sky was amazingly clear and Frank's knowledge of the cosmos was helpful for us novices. The Alpacas were interesting and very photogenic. It... More
