Welcoming place to stay. Breakfast was wonderful and very filling. Questions about the local area were answered happily on arrival. Totally laid back and relaxing place to stay. It was our first stay at a B&B and now I think we are probably spoiled! Didn't take the time to enjoy the full property, but you could spend plenty of time just wandering around and taking in the peacefulness.

My husband and I celebrated our five-year wedding anniversary in Galena this past July. We stayed at Hawk Valley for two nights and really enjoyed our stay there. The hosts were wonderful and the breakfast was great. They gave us some excellent recommendations for our anniversary dinner and things to do in Galena. We also enjoyed walking around the grounds and relaxing in the Fox Glen Cottage. I would definitely consider going back there!

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!
