My husband and I traveled with another couple, as we do every year in April. This was our first time to Galena. Cottage is within a 10 minute drive into the downtown Galena area. Beautiful drive to and from town. Loved the cows on the way into the cottage. The cottage itself is quiet, relaxing, and quaint. It has a nice homey feeling to it. It has everything you need to make a great meal. Beds are comfy, fire place is amazing to have and the best part for us, is that's it's PET FRIENDLY. We love to travel and love traveling even more with our little Maltese Casper, when at all possible. The views off the back deck are wonderful. We will definitely rent again when visiting the Galena area. Thank you for sharing your sweet home with US!
Thought the house was very clean, well decorated, and very comfortable. Richard O was great when there was an issue; he contacted us back that same afternoon.
The only disappointment was the view from our deck. The internet made it look like we would be able to see a pasture, but we had a wall of trees about ten feet off our deck. That being said, the birds were awfully nice to listen to and watch.
A wonderful house to spend the weekend in, and my hope is to do it again soon.
Packed some amenities just in case but found everything available just as described. Got lucky with the weather (70's) except for one day when we limited a round to nine holes because of the chill. Courses were in beautiful shape and we almost had them all to ourselves. I guess most vacationers wait for the summer heat. Would return to Galena for the accommodation, the golf, and Fried Green Tomatoes. One son from D.C. flew into Dubuque to join us which was just a short drive away. And the parking was at the terminal door and free. Beats big city living.
Our stay was great! Cozy little house with everything one would need for cooking in. Sheets, towels, blankets, even the dog bowls. Bbq only gets to about 300 degrees though. View from the deck after some leaves had fallen, water fall and lake. Great get away with our pup, walking trails, lots of stars, lots of birds, blue jays, hawks and even an Eagle. Great looking golf course.
We will definitely do it again next fall.

Home was decently clean, but smelled of smokers. Worked perfectly for our young family. Was nothing too fancy.
Had a couple issues but Richard was very accommodating in resolving them. He took care of us & was very understanding.
