My wife and I decided to elope and we chose Hawk Valley Retreat as the site. We couldn't have a made a better choice!! Wendy and Hal ran everything smoothly and it will be a memory that last a lifetime. The food was excellent, cottages are fantastic. location is easy to find and just a short drive outside of historic Galena.
Highly recommend!

We had a great time at Hawk Valley Retreat & Cottages. We stayed in the Pines Cottage and it was so nice and relaxing. The weather didn't cooperate and we had snow in late April but we didn't care as we were looking for some R & R and this was definitely the place to have it. Hal and Wendy were perfect hosts, breakfast was incredible! It was our first trip to Galena and we were glad we picked somewhere a little out of downtown so it was more relaxing. We will be back and would definitely recommend Hawk Valley to anyone.

Great place to meet up with friends. Breakfast each morning is excellent. Hal and Wendy are wonderful hosts. Feels like family when we visit. Birds are fun to watch while eating in the morning or relaxing on the porch. Beautiful country setting. Short drive to Galena for walking, shopping, and great food.

The Hawk Valley Retreat was a great place to stay. We stayed in the Pines Cottage and enjoyed every minute of it. Hal and Wendy put on a great breakfast! Would definitely stay here again.
