We have been coming here for years and we always have a great time. If you are afraid of spiders or being outside in nature at night (when it is dark) this is probably not the right place for you. It's rustic and a bit like high-end camping, but you have a roof over your heard, a frig, a comfy... More

We did not stay here but we wanted to see the alpacas. We texted the owner in advance and received a reply that viewing was between 10-4. We arrived to find a handful of sad looking alpacas in a pen. No one was around. There certainly was no evidence of a store mentioned on the website. We thought we might... More

Where to begin, this was the worst place I have ever stayed. The advertising pictures are far from what it really is. When we arrived to the office shack we were terrified had to get key from cork board that had cob webs all over it. Once arrived at cabins it was a joke. We stayed in Lincoln, weeds everywhere...

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
