This home was immaculate and the location was (URL HIDDEN) convenient to downtown Galena. We really enjoyed our weekend get-away with our family to celebrate 3 birthdays. Virginia is an exceptionally thoughtful and responsive host. Would strongly encourage anyone needing a bit more space to seek her out and to rent her home for a truly special getaway.

This home was perfect for our group of girls....I would definitely stay there again! It would also be great for a couples trip, with four queen-sized beds in four private bedrooms. The kitchen and bathrooms were updated and immaculately cleaned. There is only one shower, but it worked out fine for us! The living/dining room was cute and a perfect place to hang out. There was a lot of natural light shining in from outside with a view of the historic train station and river across the street. We loved the way Virginia decorated the house. The wifi was great and the location of the house is perfect. It's just across the river from town so you have a short 5-10 minute walk through Grant Park and across the bridge to get to the shops on Main Street. But it's nice to be able to come back to the quiet residential area of the neighborhood at the end of a long day or night. There is a cute brunch spot across the street called Otto's that we would have gone to twice had we had more time! Just up the street from the house is the home of Ulysses S. Grant.

I'm almost afraid to write this review and share my newly found gem with you ! The host is an utmost professional and truly belongs in the hospitality business ! She responded to my many texts and questions promptly and was so friendly and helpful whenever I needed her. The home is just beautiful ! Decorated with simple beauty and comfort in mind ! Everything we needed , from the DVD and flat screen tv (we like to order in and watch movies) to 4 beautifully appointed bedrooms . The cherry on top was a fenced yard for our dogs ! Yes ! We were able to take our dogs with us !! Score !! We saw Galena's fireworks show right through the living room window ! Couldn't get any better . Just a short 5-10 min stroll takes you to Galena Main Street and all the shopping and eats you could hope for ! We adore Galena and now will look forward to being return guests !

Wow! We were VERY impressed! The pictures do NOT do this place justice! They have updated every thing and it has 4 queen beds and bedrooms with large rooms/closets! The place was very clean and everything was just cozy! The location was AMAZING! We were able to talk everywhere and it was located right next to the charming train station. The Host always quickly responded and was extremely flexible and helpful through out the renting process and during our stay! We will be coming back again!
