LeFevre Inn & Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 11, 2011

We found the LeFevre Inn to be a charming little inn with a great panoramic view of the countryside. Our room was very tastefully decorated and the fireplace gave the room an extra touch of comfort. The service was excellent. It was well worth the 5 minute drive out of Galena. We hope to have an opportunity to return to the Inn in the future.

We stayed at the Inn for two nights. We initially thought we would have preferred staying at an inn right on main street until we got to LeFevre Inn & Resort. The inn was the prefect location. It is a short 5 minute drive to main street and set up in the hills with a beautiful view and pretty sunsets. The property is large and quiet, it is close to the shops and restaurants but away from the noise and crowds on Main Street. The rooms have a king or queen size bed and a couch with a pull-out bed. There is a plasma TV above the fireplace, a small fridge and a coffee maker. We brought leftovers from meals back to the inn with us as there is a microwave that you can use to reheat food near the ice machine. The pool on site is a perfect size and the water was a great temperature. Although their websites states that there is a hot tub as well it is inaccurate as the hot tub has recently been removed. The rooms however do have a large two person jetted tub. If you are looking for a restaurant in downtown Galena stay away from Vinny Vanucchi's Italian Restaurant, it is overpriced and the food was terrible, probably the worst restaurant I have ever been too, no idea how it has any positive reviews.

Very beautiful suite with relaxing atmosphere! The manager was so friendly and helpful. The beds were extremely uncomfortable, though. I ended up sleeping on the sofa, which was far more comfy.

This was a wonderful getaway from Chicago. The prices were very reasonable, the owners were very friendly and helpful about local restaurants. The rooms were very spacious, spotless, and updated with all appliances including a fireplace in the room...not to mention how comfy the mattress and plush pillows were in the extra large King size bed. We will be back with out extended family later this summer...and you can bring small dogs too:) We will def. be back!

Wife and I spent our 39th wedding anniversary at this Inn and were quite impressed with the level of quality found here. Not your everyday motel chinzey fixtures. While the rooms in the main house were a touch "cozy", I felt, the overall feel of the establishment was very high. Michelle, the Innkeeper, was very friendly, helpful, and projects a feeling of actual care for the comfort of her guests.
The view from the front of Le Fevure is quite spectacular and the man-made Lake is beautiful and relaxing. Go ahead and purchase the bottle of wine in your room, you won't be disappointed.
An in-room microwave would have been nice, but it's the only negative I can think of.
I think we'll be back next year!

I visited Galena with a group of friends. A highlight was sitting in the hot tub on the deck at LeFevre which overlooks Galena nestled in the hills and the sky was amazing (very little light pollution). We were lucky enough to be there duriing a meteor shower and saw dozens of shooting stars. It was incredible!! The rooms were upscale and even the TV selection was amazing.
The downtown shops were fun - esp Poopsies and the Kandy Kitchen - and so many restaurants and refreshment stops!!!
It's a great weekend for a group of friends or a romantic get-away for a couple.

The views of Galena and beyond are breathtaking. The sunsets over the lake and gazebo are wonderful. There wer so many things to do right there - a fire pit, the lake with a wee paddlewheeler, the swimming pool, an outdoor hot tub. We want to go back with our extended family so that we can all enjoy the accomodations and just have fun away from the hustle abd bustle of every day life. I highly recommend this accomodation. We loved walking around Galena as well.
