About

Family owned and operated!! Situated on the Galena IL boyhood estate of Civil War General Augustus Chetlain, this quiet country setting is the ideal antidote for the stress of city living. Nestled a mere 2 miles from Main St. Galena, Illinois are five rustic, original 1800s log cabins updated with luxurious amenities such as double whirlpool tub, wood burning fireplace, coffee maker, dorm size frig and microwave, central heat and air conditioning. Cabin rates also include continental breakfast, campfires, and occasional bonfires. Outdoor grilling is acceptable if you bring a grill. Conveniently located a short distance from downtown Galena and an all night Super Walmart in case you forget something, yet completely surrounded by 120 acres of grazing pasture. Private, secluded and convenient. We boast complete privacy, we don't bother you, you can bother us any time. .galena-illinois-lodging

Real Cabin Feel

2.8 on April 10, 2014

We really wanted to experience staying in a log cabin and Allen's Log Cabin gives you that experience. A plus about this place is that it is one of the few places that has wood burning fireplaces, which was a huge plus for us. What a beautiful view of open fields looking out a big window near our Jacuzzi tub. We very much enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets as well as the dark starry skies at night...very tranquil and relaxing experience. With the pros does come a few cons that we cannot omit. We did have trouble with getting enough hot water to enjoy the tub. We were unable to enjoy the tub on the first night and when we brought it up to the Innkeepers the second night, she wasn't too accommodating. We did not allow that to ruin our experience so we came up with our own plan, and eventually were able to enjoy our hot tub.


Cute, quiet getaway

3.0 on April 02, 2014

The cabin was adorable, quiet and relaxing. It just had a couple small minor defects. The ceiling fan light bulbs were burnt out and not replaced, so the overhead light did not work, the hot tub drain was extremely slow and the fitted sheets on the bed did not fit properly and are not of a high thread count as the website states. For the nightly cost, I would have expected none of the deficiencies. Other than a few small items, the cabin appears exactly as it does in the pictures. It is adorable with great romantic atmosphere and did not ruin our stay.. I would return.


Very cozy and peaceful

The cabin was absolutely beautiful. It was warm and there was limitless firewood to set the ambiance of the entire weekend. I would definitely recommend this place for a nice getaway.


Anniversary Getaway

5 on January 29, 2014

We were looking for a quiet and cozy place to share together our 10 year wedding anniversary. This was the perfect place! Jacuzzi Tub, Candles and a Wood Burning Fireplace with your true love - what more could you ask for. Complete privacy, very peaceful, romantic. You are not disturbed, not even for your breakfast - you can pick up the night before while you are out. Dining in town - lots of choices. We thouroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would most highly recommend the Grant Cabin.


Fun experience

3.4 on January 16, 2014

My wife and I stayed here over the New Years' holiday and it was COLD outside. Thus, the cabin was cold too. The central heat, fireplace, and spaceheater managed t o keep up, though. Some things could use a little TLC such as the jacuzzi. It took me a night to figure out the nuances of that machine, kinda like some of the lawn mowers I used to use as a kid, figuring out how to start it was tricky and I'm still pressed to understand how what I did made a difference. It's the the strongest motor and the proprietor knows it has to be replaced. The bed was very comfy and the linens impressively clean, but the bed had a bit of a sag in the middle and you find yourself drifting. The wifi is weak and spotty so don't go in expecting to steam a lot of content. Overall it was fun! I would say, it's rustic with a dash of class. It's a cabin, set your expectations.
