Tucked away on the hills outside Galena, Hawk Valley Retreat & Cabins is an outstanding choice. The 10 acres are lovely and include a walking path and a pond. We stayed in the Pines cabin and it is spacious, nicely decorated, and has a private porch where we sipped our wine in the evening.

I highly recommend Hawk Valley to any couple who wants a nice quiet getaway. The cottage was amazing, there were homemade cookies daily and the service was superb!

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing weekend in the Pines cottage. The food was wonderful and we loved the private dinner. It was great to have a hot stone massage in the room also.

This is a lovely B&B with private cottages as well as rooms in the owner's home. The breakfast is always delicious, and the property is gorgeous! The cottages we stay in are always clean, with great amenities such as a fireplace, jacuzzi tub and flat screen TV with DVD player! I highly recommend Hawk Valley in Galena, IL!

This was our first experience at a B&B. I will definitely be going back to Hawk Valley. We stayed in the Swan Lake Room, one of three in the main house. It was spacious for a bedroom & the bathroom was very nice sized. Hawk Valley has four individual cottages. Both mornings, we ate a delicious, hearty hot breakfast. The servings were very substantial, One of the options was a "Romantic Candlelight Dinner for Two". The cost was $90, but worth every penny. We selected an appetizer, entrée, two sides and dessert. It was enough to serve four! Some of the benefits of Hawk Valley over the other B&B's I researched, Hawk Valley has separate doors that lead from the bedrooms to the wrap-around deck that circles around the entire main house, breakfast serving time is based on when each couple gets to the dining room to eat, cookies & candies are always sitting out for guests. Hal & Wendy are a wealth of information, they suggested several spots to visit that we would not have known about, off the beaten path. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a casual, laid-back, country setting with delicious food served to feed an army. They are only 8 miles from town, just seems farther because of the country roads, but it doesn't take but 10-15 minutes. When we left, it felt like telling Grandma good-bye to her good cooking & comfy home. Can't go wrong here!!

Great hospitality by Wendy and Hal. Warm and inviting. Felt like being at home but with a full service chef! Rooms were warm and cozy and nicely decorated. Beautiful grounds covered with snow...definitely a nature's paradise as advertised...and definitely going back in the summer! Hal's cooking was amazing considering my husband & I are from the Chicagoland area and have many restaurants to compare to. Hal's culinary skills by far can beat any of the Galena restaurants in town. We picked the romantic dinner as an add on package & had so much food that there was enough for leftovers for a nice lunch the next day! Delicious and a great price too:) Close enough to town yet secluded for a nice romantic or family get away. You definitely won't go hungry!

Hawk Valley Retreat is amazing! Very private in cottages...very comfortable beds...has everything you could need! Breakfast in the main house is outstanding. Wendy and Hal are superb hosts, and excellent cooks! The grounds of the B&B are beautiful..much wildlife to be seen...and very picturesque. We have stayed at Hawk Valley four times, and never want to leave to go home!!

We found Hal & Wendy to be very accomodating. The breakfasts were both very good, and the Hillside cottage was secluded, but not so far that we couldn't walk down to breakfast. We tried snowshoeing and enjoyed walking the perimeter of the property. We hope to return in September when it's a little warmer! :)

My wife and I recently stayed at Hawk Valley. This was our first time to Galena, and this seemed to fit our needs best. The cottages are more then what we expected. Very clean and very well set up with a lot of space. The owners we very knowledgeable, and had excellent recommendations of places to go/visit. The breakfasts we had were comparable to any restaurant, and visiting with the owners and other guests was an added bonus. We truly enjoyed our time, and look forward to a return visit at Hawk Valley Retreat.
