First of all...your location and the room were fabulous. The couch and the TV were pretty outdated for it being a King Suite...but the four poster bed was gorgeous and the furniture definitely fit in with the atmosphere of Galena. And the little back patio looking out on the gorgeous field and lake were an unexpected surprise! That being said, my husband and I are pretty sure we were visited by a little critter in the middle of the night. I'm a light sleeper and the extra firm mattress DID NOT help me have a nice sleep at all, but 3 times in the night I heard rustling in the garbage cans. At first I figured our ice cream cups were just settling in the trash can, but it would come and go every few minutes. I woke my husband up who believed I was crazy and we went to look and didn't find anything so we went back to bed. About 10 minutes later the rustling started again and this time he heard it also. We jumped out of bed and went to look and, again, nothing. Thinking we were crazy, we scoured the room looking for any evidence of a mouse. We found some mouse poop up behind the night stand by the headboard. We just decided to put the trash out back on the patio because there was no point in asking for another room at 3-4am. I understand being out in the country it's gonna happen but really didn't expect it. In the end, a softer mattress would've really been great! We left our 5 month home with the Grandparents and I was really looking forward to a good night's sleep =\ I can't really rate the staff, our interaction with them was minimal. The girl on check in was super friendly and the girl on check out seemed like she had better things to do and I was bothering her. "Staff in Uniform" didn't notice at all. Your breakfast was awesome!
