My husband and I love the Grant Cabin. We used to come here all the time. But now the bed in the cabin is getting old. Not very comfy. I guess my husband and I are getting old too though. I wish they would let us know if they replaced the beds.

I'm so glad you love the cabin!! The Grant is my favorite, too! We replaced the mattress in that cabin the first of this year :) We make upgrades whenever we can, so if you find something that needs fixing while you're here, just let me know! I don't stay in the cabins so if you don't tell me, I... More

These cabins are truely one not to pass by. From thier rustic frontier apperance one truely feels that you've stepped back in time. Check in was very quick and stress free. The staff is excellent. Our cabin was gorgeous on the inside with a beautiful view of the valley and the huge fire place. Staying here was definitely the highlight... More

We stayed for a weekend and enjoyed our cabin so much. We were looking for a place that our dog could stay, too. Thanks to our hostess for making us and our corgi feel so welcome! These cabins are close to Galena, yet have a feeling of being way out in the country. Loved our morning banana bread- yum!

Our son just had his wedding here and everything was wonderful. Miss Tammy went above and beyond to make it a special day. The cabins were perfect and the property was beautiful. Miss Tammy even built a bonfire upon special request. We will definitely be back!

We loved our time at Allen's! Tammy is a wonderful hostess and very knowledgeable about the area. It's only a few miles from downtown Galena but feels like another world away. So nice, peaceful, and relaxing! The cabin we were in was so nice and cozy. The jacuzzi was fantastic, especially after walking around all day. We will definitely make... More

Spent the night here with my daughter and our large dog. Clean, friendly, and make you feel at home. Will definitely be back, Tammy and her mom have a great place here. They have 5 cabins and a coach house, one of the cabins accommodates 6 people.

I booked here last minute this past Friday for the next day for one night. I spent a lot of time contacting places for my son and his fiancé. He suprised us with his homecoming from his first deployment so I wanted to find a place for them for a short getaway! I emailed the inn keeper and she did... More

This place is awesome. Grant's Cabin will forever be a place my wife and I remember. You walk into a REAL log cabin, it's 150 years old, you can see each and every axe cut in the logs from 150 years ago! They've also tastefully incorporated a nice bathroom and a hot tub into the cabin. This past weekend was... More

We were looking for something quiet and relaxing and found it here. It was a quick last minute get away and when we called Sunday morning there was availability for the next two nights in Grant's cabin. We had never heard of this place before and decided to venture out from home in McHenry County. This was absolutely perfect for... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled a mere 2 miles from Main St. and surrounded by 120 acres of pasture and field, are five rustic, original 1800s log cabins updated with luxurious amenities such as double whirlpool tubs, wood burning fireplaces, satellite tv, central heat/ac, continental breakfast and more. Situated on the Galena IL boyhood estate of Civil War General Augustus Chetlain, this quiet, pastoral country setting is the ideal antidote for the stress of city living. The perfect "get away from it all" location without having to travel for conveniences. We allow tent camping and you can bring your own grill. Enjoy a campfire in the fire pit or arrange for a HUGE bonfire while you're here (weather permitting). Family owned and operated with many recent upgrades. New sofas, new mattresses, etc. ... more   less
