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!

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 .
