My wife and I stayed here while visiting Galena for two nights in February. The cottages is about a 10 minute drive from downtown Galena. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and homey. The owner's made us feel very welcome and took very good care of us and the other guests. I mentioned that I have issues with gluten and they took it upon themselves to make gluten free breakfast alternatives for me. They even made a plate of cookies for the guests one night and even made some gluten free ones. We can't wait to go back in the summer to enjoy the property when the weather is better. It was everything I expected and then some.

My husband and I went here this past weekend and loved every bit of our stay. The amazing view from the cottage, wonderful hospitality, and delicious homemade breakfast is one experience I won't forget. We will be coming back next time we are in the Galena area. If you are looking to experience some peace and quiet and absorb Galena's amazing country land this place is for you.

My wife and I had a really enjoyable trip to Hawk Valley Retreat. Our room was clean, cozy, and well decorated. Our hosts made us feel right at home, provided excellent service, and the breakfasts exceeded expectations. We enjoyed spending time in the historic town of Galena, spent time at one of the scenic, local wineries, and even enjoyed horseback riding a short distance from the property. I would highly recommend a stay at Hawk Valley to anyone looking for a weekend getaway, to celebrate a special occasion, or for a surprise date with your significant other!

This is a special place. Beautiful scenery, wonderful hosts, really gourmet-type cuisine made by the hosts. We prefer staying in one of the cottages. They are fully equipped with kitchen needs, and a whirlpool tub. The views are wonderful and one can even see some deer in the surrounding fields.

Hawk Valley is so romantic and quaint, the pictures do not do it justice. We visited in the off season, and were looking for a quiet, secluded getaway for New Years.
I couldn't resist the urge to head into town anyway, and Hawk valley is still close enough to Galena to explore the shops downtown.
The hosts are so friendly I'm hospitable, the breakfast was delicious, I could go on and on.
YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
