We loved it and will be back

4.8 on June 13, 2014

It was a birthday surprise for my girl friend. She was so happy and we both loved it. We just wish that we could have enjoyed a nice walk on the trails, but the gnats were so bad. There bad everywhere. We have them at home. I think we will be coming back in the winter and do a little hiking. Thanks for everything. Beautiful cabin. Larry and Debbie.


Would come back

It was nice secluded; however outside upkeep could have been better. Inside of the cabins was nice. Bathroom could have used some work. It is a whirlpool bathtub possibly could fit 2 small people.


Fun for Four

We spent the night in the cabin with another couple and had a lot of fun. We went into Galena to have a great dinner and listen to a little live music. If the weather had been better, we would have enjoyed using the grilling area with the fire pits and picnic tables. All four of us would like to go back again.


A Great Birthday Weekend!

My wife and three year old son spent a wonderful few days at the Galena Log Cabin Getaway. The cabins were lovely! They were clean, the staff was very friendly and very informative. I didn't put marks for dining as they do not offer this service. Do yourself a favor, getaway to Galena!


NICE QUIET GET AWAY GREAT 4 THE DOG LOVERS

3.2 on November 27, 2011

This was a nice getaway for us and our dog. The woods were a great place to walk and see nature. Belle loved walking in the woods. The cabin was a welcome change from your normal "cookie cutter" hotel. Close to Galena but just far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet. Alpacas are adorable! Will be back again .


Go for the Alpaca viewing

Log Cabin getaway was sufficient. If you are looking for cheap and OK accomodations this is the place. Log cabin cute and adequate, beds were good, however couldn't keep the fireplace going and the coffee maker was not in working order. Also, poor lighting made it difficult to read. The breakfast consisted of a banana , yogurt and a really bad packaged sweet roll. It was neat to have an alpaca peering in our kitchen window in the morning. Never seen that before!


Anniversary getaway

3.2 on October 19, 2011

The cabins were quaint, and the setting was okay, personally, I would have liked it better if the pasture was not right up against the cabins. It made it seem like we were in a feed lot. Ruth and Frank were very nice. I am also sure that they are right in line with the rest of the area, price wise, but I did not feel that the cabins were worth what we paid.


absolutely wonderful

My Husband and I finally got to make our first trip out to Galena and we stayed in the cabins. We loved them they were very cute and quaint very well maintained. The breakfast baskets were nice just enough to get you up and going in the morning. The property owners are very nice and helpful also very willing to make your stay with them as comfortable as possible. The cabins were very clean and have everything you need for a relaxing getaway.


Wonderful getaway

This was a wonderful place and our only regret was that we did not have enough time off to stay longer. The cabin was lovely with comfortable beds covered in gorgeous quilts and even smelled fabulous, and the alpacas and puppies are adorable. The whole place is delightfully quiet and out of the way while at the same time only a short drive to all the activities the region of downtown Galena and surrounds has to offer.


Fabulous, cozy and fun

My fiance and I spent the weekend at these adorable and well-maintained cabins. The group of cabins might look simple from the outside, but they are so beautiful and comfortable inside. Beds were comfortable and bathroom was clean. The cabin was very spacious and plenty of room for 4 in the cabin we stayed in. Breakfast baskets were great and just enough to get you going in the morning. We also loved looking out our windows to see the alpacas roaming around. It was a fabulous visit to Galena and the cabin really added to the experience. We will definitely be back.
