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.

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.

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 .

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!
