This was our third visit to Hawk Valley. We have enjoyed our stay each and every time. Breakfast is outstanding, the cottages are clean and the perfect size for a weekend getaway. Hawk Valley is the perfect distance from the downtown area. Beautiful scenery and close enough to not miss a beat in town. We definitely plan to visit again, and can't wait to do so!

Room tip: Don't skip breakfast, and come hungry!

We thank you for returning to Hawk Valley Retreat and taking the time to post your comments here on Trip Advisor. We would agree that we are the perfect distance from town...close enough to get there quickly, yet far enough away to experience the peace and tranquility of the country. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon. Wendy and Hal

My husband and I chose Hawk Valley Retreat after much searching on the internet. We were looking for a special place to celebrate our anniversary and to renew our wedding vows. Hawk Valley Retreat surpassed all of our expectations!!The setting is absolutely idyllic with rolling hills , a pond and fountain and a lovely gazebo. The site of the gazebo is where we renewed our vows. Wendy and Hal work with a great officiant named Jess who did a beautiful job with the ceremony...my husband and I were both crying!We stayed in the Sommerset cottage which was spotless and we enjoyed sitting on the porch swing. The stars at night are spectacular. I got up early one morning when it was still dark and saw a falling star! The food was delicious and filling. We have stayed at a couple of bed and breakfasts and my husband declared the food at Hawk Valley Retreat the best of the bunch.Finally,I have to commend Hal and Wendy. They are gracious hosts who are very personable and diligent at what they do. In this day and age it can be a rare thing to find people who do things with a spirit of excellence...but that is what Hal and Wendy do. Many thanks to them for a memorable occasion!

Room tip: The Sommerset cottage was lovely with a great porch swing and perhaps a little more room to spread out due to being a one bedroom.

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!
