I am so glad we chose to stay here instead of in town. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful out in the country surrounded by cornfield. The breakfast was delicious and far more than you can eat. The hosts are engaging and friendly.

Room tip: Meadowlands at the end of the House is more secluded with privacy at the end of the deck.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and it truly was the best way to do so. We were both thrilled with our cottage and can’t wait to return. I highly encourage anyone looking for the “perfect place” to stay here.

My wife and I went to Galena for a 3 day weekend to celebrate our anniversary, stayed at a cottage at Hawk Valley (Somerset Cottage for the first 2 nights, then Hillside for the 3rd, since the Somerset was booked already for that night). The grounds are beautiful, the drive into town was also very pretty. Our cottages were very clean, pretty, and private. We had fresh cookies waiting for us every day when the place was cleaned, nice big comfortable beds with lots of pillows. Also breakfast each morning was soooo good, and Wendy and Hal really went out of their way to make special recipes each morning that catered to my wife's dietary restrictions. I would highly recommend Hawk Vally Retreat to anyone considering a trip to Galena!

I highly recommend this gorgeous retreat! The hosts are so sweet and the breakfast was delicious! The property a well maintained and lots of little areas for relaxation! I came here for a business trip and found myself relaxing while working. It was amazing.

Room tip: For the back rooms to have a little better wifi connection. (since I came for work I did need a decent connection)

We had a great in Galena shopping and spend time together. We were super lucky to get a reservation at the Hawk Valley property. (It was a last minute weekend) The Pines Cottage was excellent! The breakfast was yummy!! The biscuits were just wonderful. I would highly recommend this to all my friends!

So happy that the last minute reservation worked out for you and your sister. Biscuits are one of my favorites too...if not for breakfast I must admit I look forward to left overs. Thanks for taking the time to comment on your stay. Wendy and Hal
