The place is very nice for quiet time by the lake.
The rooms are not brand new, but well kept and the mattress/pillows/linens are
Of the very good quality.
Positive: hotel service is good, restaurant, coffee shop and convenient stores on the property;
Lots of scenic walking trails, pontoons to rent.
Negative: room was very expensive even with TravelZoo deal I purchased($18 daily resort fee plus tax), spa services are super
expensive($55 for pedicure), no outdoor pool or the beach area; no entertainment at night (everything closes in Galena at 10pm on the weekends and 8pm on the weeknights).
Bottom line: if you not a golfer or the traveler who likes very quiet country retreat, this is not a place for you.
