  • Great location for visiting Galena.

    Judy2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The best part about this place is that the bedroom is in the back of the apartment, away from the street and with no windows, so you could sleep forever if you wanted and the light and street noise wouldn't disturb you. The bed is comfy and the hosts provided great local coffee. The bathroom is small but has what you need for a few days. The kitchen is big and the living room is comfy and bright. Perfect location for walking to downtown shopping and dining.

    Ann2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is clean and the location is perfect if you are planning on enjoying all that Main Street has to offer. It's a very easy walk to public stairs dropping you right in the middle of Main Street. I would stay here again!

We stayed there on Jan 24 and Jan 25 and really enjoyed our stay and will be coming back later this year.

    Hey there! We exposed the old original brick and hard wood floors inside. We installed an electric fireplace with a big comfy couch right in front of it. We do have cable TV with a variety of channels for you. There is a kitchen complete with an oven, stove, microwave and fridge if you are going to channel your inner chef. The bathroom has a shower and tub, and a built-in bathroom heater to keep it warm for you! This apt is above a coffee shop!
    This apartment has just been completely renovated. When tearing down walls, we noticed burnt wood around the windows and ceiling. We dug deeper and learned more about the history of the building. We discovered that it had burnt down in 1878 and was rebuilt in 1879. The owner of the building during this time lived in this apartment where the fire had started. The rest of the story on this historic apartment is in there for you when you book! Please Note: since this is an older building apartment does not have individually controlled climate but it is closely monitored by me (Jack) at a comfortable temperature for you! Note: You will hear noise from the street! This is an old building and sound from main street does come in!
    The town of Galena is kept in a historic look and city hall does a great job of preserving it. There are restaurants, bars, and shops only steps away from the apartment. Below is Big Bill's which is a coffee and lunch place. Quiet during the entire day so there won't be any loud disruptions while you are here.

  • Sarah's place was awesome ... ! We visited Galena for my wife's 55th birthday and to try out her new knee (ACL repair) at the nearby Chestnut Mountain ski resort where we learned to snowboard ... :-) Sarah's place is located smack in the middle of down town Galena with easy access from Main Street or the one car garage in back. Sarah provided everything we needed. We had plenty of space to relax at the end of the day, more than enough room for my wife, daughter and I to sleep - the beds were very nice and comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and clean, and the kitchen had everything necessary for us to cook breakfast and dinner. Sarah also provided plenty of amazing "Black Magic" coffee and tea to start and end our day. We hope to return to Galena in the summer to explore the town and will definitely stay at Sarah's place again ... Tom Shepherd

    My apartment is located right on Galena's historic main street also known as the Helluvahalfmile. There are great views, restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities, and nightlife. You’ll love my place because of it's location, the ambiance, people and the Galena main street life. You are right above my restaurant, which serves coffee, breakfast and lunch!
    The apartment is located right on what I call "Restaurant Row!" The location is unbeatable being right in the heart of Galena with everything within walking distance! Since this is an older building apartment does not have individually controlled climate but it is closely monitored by me (Jack) at a comfortable temperature for you! Note: You will hear noise from the street! This is an old building and sound from main street does come in!

  • The Brick Apartment was an exceptional travel find. The value was excellent, the location excellent ... as well as everything else associated with the visit. We would highly recommend this space for those traveling to Galena!

    Todd2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jack was a great host. The space was perfect for what we needed and we greatly appreciated being able to check out a little late. Will definitely recommend to friends and family in the future!

    Susan2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment. Very classy feel.

    Joe2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfectly located in Downtown Galena. It was superclean. The communication was excellent. Didn't hurt that the owner's restaurant was right downstairs. We would go back in a heartbeat.

    Jeremy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described, perfect spot for quick weekend getaway to Galena!

    Denise2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    Hey there! This apartment was completely renovated and we exposed the old original brick and hard wood floors inside. There is comfy couch right waiting for you! We do have cable TV with a variety of channels for you. There is a kitchen complete with an oven, stove, microwave, fridge & dishwasher. If you are going to try out your chef skills, the kitchen is big enough for two! The bathroom has a shower and tub, and a double vanity for the both of you! This apt is above a coffee shop!
    This apartment has just been completely renovated. When tearing down walls, we found two old door ways that were plastered over. We took one of the doors that went into the adjacent apartment, and allowed it to become a passage between both. If you were to book this one and The Corner Apartment atop Main, we could open the doors up for you to have a larger space, and a higher occupancy. We dug deeper and learned more about the history of the building. We discovered that it had burnt down in 1878 and was rebuilt in 1879. The owner of the building during this time lived in this apartment where the fire had started. The rest of the story on this historic apartment is in there for you when you book!

  • What an awesome place! My husband and I enjoyed our (kid free) stay. Jack's place was so neat! Love love the exposed brick. We loved being on the Main Street. Everything is in walking distance. 😁 The food and coffee downstairs was sooo good and so convenient. If you're staying at one of Jack's bnb you definitely need to try Big Bill's sandwich shop and coffee bar. You will not be disappointed. I wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely come back and stay here again! Thanks Jack!

    Cielo2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fun getaway! We loved staying on Main Street. We will be back!

    Carolina2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

    Ryan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Keinn2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Drew2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Perfectly situated on Main Street, you have easy walking access to the shops and restaurants that are among Galena's best attractions. The restaurant below (also owned/operated by the host) is good and the coffee drinks are great. The place itself was spacious and comfortable.

    James (Jim)2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice!

    Kyle2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jack’s place was super nice!! It was in the middle of all the little local shops and for our 3 day getaway it was just enough! It’s perfect if you’re looking to get away from the usual routine and the sight seeing on the way there is absolutely beautiful! The apartment itself was so comfortable and cozy and everything we needed was provided! Would visit again definitely!

    Newly renovated building in historic, Uptown Galena above Miss Kitty's Grape Escape. One studio apartment with kitchenette with microwave and coffee/kcup maker, queen size futon, & Wheelchair accessible patio. Extra mirrors in the bathroom with a full size shower, bathrobes and lush towels. Easy access to premier night life and entertainment just below at Miss Kitty's Grape Escape. *recently added* 4K Roku 45" television.
    For an additional guest fee(s), we are happy to accept your potty trained dog(s). Simply let us know when you book and add additional guests to your reservation to accommodate your pet. If your little one does not like the potential for loud noise or the occasional cannon bomb or fireworks, you may not want to stay on Main St. Additionally, we expect your dog to not be left unattended in the apartment if he or she cannot handle it. We can’t have dogs barking and waking the neighbors but obviously a dog might bark about something. We do expect you to keep their volume very low. Our bar downstairs is dog friendly for friendly dogs.
    Downtown Galena is historically rich from the Civil War era. There are over 100 stores one right after the other. Plenty of diverse food choices (and dietary needs), great coffees and beers, and plenty of touring opportunities. I suggest checking out VisitGalena.Org for more tourism information. And you can always ask downstairs at the bar for those off the beaten path gems.
  • Perfect space in a perfect location.

    Alicia2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I stayed here with our dog for a quick snowboarding trip and the place was just as advertised. Parking was easy, coffee shop right across the street, cozy space, and the place was cleaner than any hotel I have stayed in. You could hear the music from the bar below (as the posting stated) but it really wasn't an issue for us. We will certainly be staying here again!

    Chris2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location!

    Randy2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Catherine’s place is excellent! She has a great little guidebook with lots of recommendations for things to do, places to eat, and shops to check out. A few even have discounts if you mention her! It is above a bar so there is sound late into the night, but ear plugs are provided. Everything about this stay was great!

    Lauren2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • For my first airbnb experience it was fantastic!!!! Such a beautiful place and exceeded my expectations. The host is incredible and was so friendly and thoughtful. We had stayed during a snow storm and the plowing and salting outside of the place was done before we even stepped outside. Can’t wait to book again. 100 out of 10 for this experience.

    Mckenzie2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Catherine's place is great! Fantastic location in downtown Galena. The space is so cute - and it's perfect for a solo traveler or couple.

    Anna2020-01-10T00:00:00Z

    Colton2020-01-07T00:00:00Z

    This 1840's miner's cottage in the heart of Galena is only 3 blocks from beautiful, historic and fun Downtown Galena Main Street, but is far enough to have quiet times in the 1/25 acre yard of perennial gardens as well the expansive 2 story front porch, and 3rd porch off the kitchen, with gas grill. The house sits on a corner lot in the Galena National Historic District. The bathroom and kitchen are newly remodeled and the entire house is designer decorated. Beautiful!

    This home is in the Galena National Historical District. Just walk down Franklin toward Downtown, or up the Hill toward all the historical homes...just lovely.
  • Great location. Only a five minute walk to downtown. Would definitely stay here again.

    Michael2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Craig was an outstanding host, he provided great insight of the surrounding area and was very quick to respond. Amazing weekend get away and close to everything! Will absolutely be coming back!

    Danny2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great location and Craig offered lots of knowledgeable suggestions for things to do. Size was perfect for the two of us. The house was very clean and very well decorated:)

    Maggie2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The location was great, very walkable to Main St but with ample parking. The house was perfectly clean and well kept. Craig provided tons of great advice on where to eat and what to do in town.

    Jessica2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Go back in time with a touch of modern! Home was built in 1838 and in excellent condition. Home is 3 blocks from Main Street so no need to drive anywhere! Place is clean and you feel like your back in time in certain rooms which is awesome. It feels neat to be in a room that someone from 1840 used to live in.

    John2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Craig's place is super charming and very close to downtown Galena - about 5 minutes walking distance to Main Street. At my own fault, I had a little snaffu but Craig was very quick to respond and helped rectify the situation immediately. Loved that his place is pet friendly since our dogs are like our children and we don't like going anywhere without our fur-kids!

    Lilly2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The space was very clean and very beautiful. The walk to main street was very short and doable even in 10 degree weather. It was easy to get in and we could find everything we needed easily (towels, toiletries, etc). Greg was nice enough to provide some suggestions for places to visit and the ones we did go to were amazing! Would definitely stay here again.

    Antonella2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

Its a comfortable place for chilling out, enjoying the outdoor views from inside or from the front porch. It's close to downtown entertainment, yet on the quiet end of the street.
    There's a lovely front porch that overlooks the Galena River. Guests often sit on the rockers with a beverage of choice, as they watch boaters go by on the river. You're in close walking distance to restaurants, bars, shops, museums, bike path, boat launch, etc. You can park your car for the weekend and walk just about everywhere. Or rent an electric bike from the outfitter next door.
    The views are wonderful and the proximity is second to none!
  • This is a cozy, clean and stylishly remodeled space that is extremely convenient! The entire process was seamless and Debra the host very responsive. Step out the door and access Main Street but enjoy the quiet and peaceful view!

  • Me and my girlfriend stayed at Debra's house over a weekend in January. it's Small but very cozy place. It's located right before all the stores, bars and restaurants on Main Street just two houses before the big flood Gates. It has everything in the kitchen including an electric stove with microwave for those nights where you just want to stay in and cook. Plenty of hot water and strong heater to keep you nice and toasty on those colds nights.

The amenities include a completely equipped common kitchen with the widest selection of herbal teas experienced anywhere. The host was gracious, kind, and knows the business well enough to give a through overview of Galena with everything you want to know to explore the town. This is the best place we have ever stayed.

  • Our stay was absolutely perfect at Greenbriar! Bill was very informative on the area and gave us a lot of helpful hints. We stayed in room 7 and it was clean, had its own private entrance, and was everything we needed! The kitchen allowed us to make our own meals during our stay which we really enjoyed. Highly recommend staying here!

  • This is a fantastic location for the downtown experience. Located right on main street, although the street entrance is in the back. We loved it, walked everywhere. Was a bit tricky to find because of the hillside architecture, but no complaints overall. Super clean, homey, well decorated, and comfortable.

  • Four sisters got together from CA, AZ, NE and IA and had a fantastic stay at Modern Luxury. The pictures do not do it justice. Very clean, roomy, and incredibly comfortable. The upgrades throughout the unit were greatly appreciated. Very quiet as well. The beds were luxurious - the best sleep. Excellent location for shopping and dining. We walked everywhere we went. We will most definitely be back and hope to stay at another one of Raechelle's spaces.

    Newly renovated building in historic, Uptown Galena above Miss Kitty's Grape Escape. One bedroom apartment with kitchenette with microwave and coffee/kcup maker, queen size bed, living room with queen size futon couch, and 55" smart TV. Wheelchair accessible patio. Extra mirrors in the bathroom with a full size shower, bathrobes and lush towels. Easy access to premier night life and entertainment just below at Miss Kitty's Grape Escape.
    For an additional guest fee(s), we are happy to accept your potty trained dog(s). Simply let us know when you book and add additional guests to your reservation to accommodate your pet. If your little one does not like the potential for loud noise or the occasional cannon bomb or fireworks, you may not want to stay on Main St. Additionally, we expect your dog to not be left unattended in the apartment if he or she cannot handle it. We can’t have dogs barking and waking the neighbors but obviously a dog might bark about something. We do expect you to keep their volume very low. Our bar downstairs is dog friendly for friendly dogs.
    Downtown Galena is historically rich from the Civil War era. There are over 100 stores one right after the other. Plenty of diverse food choices (and dietary needs), great coffees and beers, and plenty of touring opportunities. I suggest checking out VisitGalena.Org for more tourism information. And you can always ask downstairs at the bar for those off the beaten path gems.

  • The Main Stay Inn is a wonderful little inn located in the heart of downtown Galena. Right outside the door your step into downtown Galena with all of their shops. My husband and I stayed for two nights and loved the charm and decor of the inn and loved all the little touches such as the cinnamon roll from a galena bakery, coffee roasted from a roaster in galena and a pamphlet of information and the story of the building. We will not hesitate to stay here again when we go back to Galena!

  • The location is amazing! This is our 5th year returning for our anniversary trip and this was our favorite location to date. Being able to walk out your front door onto Main Street was so convenient. Having private parking on the weekend was perfect. Never had to drive around looking for parking, which can take 30 minutes on the weekend. The apartment was very clean and everything my husband and I needed for the weekend. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay for 2 people.

    In the center of downtown Galena, we offer over 1500 sq ft. in a 1852 building. A bay window offers 180° view of Main St. A pool table, shuffleboard and bar are your disposal. You'll have access to either Main Street from the front or Bench Street from the back.

    Darcy2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful space in a wonderful location - the pictures do not do the size justice. Don is a great and accommodating host. We spent several days off peak in Galena and it was perfect for us. The space truly is a game room with a pool table, shuffleboard and dozens of board games available to play. The couches are cozy and comfortable making our stay that much more relaxing. Parking in Galena can be tough, especially on the weekends but we were able to street park right behind Don's building with no issues. He also provides a key so you can use the back entrance which made unloading/loading that much easier. We highly recommend the Gameroom to everyone!

  • The Gameroom is a wonderful home base for exploring historic Galena. It is right on the Main Street, so shops, restaurants, and entertainment options are all just steps away. We loved using the pool and shuffleboard tables, and there are a great number of board games available well. The space has a great vibe, and we slept comfortably in the bedroom. We were able to find street parking within a block when we arrived, and when we headed out to Dubuque for a bit. Don has left a nice supply of brochures and books of the features of Galena, so it is easy to find things to match your interests. Having a combination lock on the front door made for easy entry and exit, without having to bother with remembering a key to drag around. We enjoyed our visit and hope to return!

    Rhiannon2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful space with incredible attention to detail! Loved our trip and James and Josie were incredible hosts! If you’re looking for a perfect excluded escape in Galena this is the place. Everything is within walking distance but just far enough away to not be disturbed. Extremely beautiful and clean home and I couldn’t be happier! Definitely be back in the future!

    Brandon2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The Guest House was spacious, comfortable, and perfect for what I was looking for. Not too far from Main Street. Made our visit phenomenal!

    Andrew2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Carter2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The "Guest House" was very clean and the hosts were quick to respond! The water pressure was great and the bed was soft. Every inch of this Airbnb has the visitor's needs/wants in mind - from providing internet to local menus, as well as parking and fantastic lighting. Only 10 minutes from main street Galena - it is the BEST option in town!

    Monica2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The Guest House is breathtaking! Everything from the hospitality to the decorations, made it feel like we were right at home. I would recommend this stay 10 times out of 10! Definitely would love to stay here again!

    Amy2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • What a relaxing, cozy space!! My husband and I travel often and it is always a struggle finding somewhere that "feels like home" and is extremely clean. James' and Josie's place exceeded expectations. From all the extras such as delicious cookies, coffee, Moscato, special touches, and recommendations we couldn't be happier!! We never want to just hang out in a rental, but here we did!! We can't wait to visit again. Anyone would be lucky to find this gem and stay with such gracious hosts! They even kept it shoveled for us during the snow. Book a stay and you won't be sorry. This special place deserves 10 stars!!

    Enjoy a luxurious stay in our remise ("carriage house"), complete with authentic Art Deco and Industrial furniture and design. We took great care in ensuring top notch craftsmanship and amenities, so as to create an inviting environment that you won't want to leave! Hidden away off the quaint and historic Park Avenue, you'll enjoy a quiet and restful stay whilst within walking distance to Main Street Galena and all it has to offer.
    Many people just throw a room together with cheap furniture and appointments to make a few bucks. We spared no expense to make our space an extremely luxurious experience that you will never forget!
    Park Avenue is a well known and historic street in Galena, with some of the most gorgeous and well-kept Victorian architecture in the Midwest. Former home to a number of U.S. senators, Civil War generals, and other historically significant VIPs, you'll get an amazing sense of Galena's rich history. Furthermore, while you'll enjoy off street parking, you'll also enjoy the short walking distance to such attractions as Grant Park (right across the street), Main Street (8 minutes), or President Grant's house (8 minutes).
  • Dawson’s Remise is a cozy, cute and comfy place for anyone to stay. A perfect location, that makes it easy to get to downtown Galena. We enjoyed our stay so much!

    Rebecca2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed at quite a few Airbnb’s across the country from Portland Maine to San Francisco, and Dawson’s Remise is our favorite. It is very private, clean, and comfortable. My wife was sold on it when she opened the closet and found the Fallout picture. Also, check out Blaum Bros Distilling when you are in town-you won’t be disappointed.

    Andrew2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • One step in Dawson’s Remise and I knew we were in for a treat. Mike and Sammy spared no expense to make their space stand apart from the rest. Luxurious, spotless and absolutely cozy! If you are looking for a unique Airbnb that’s private, quiet, unique and close to town, look no further. Thanks, Mike & Sammy!

    Wendy2019-12-30T00:00:00Z

Recently remodeled, the Bench Street level has an entryway, full bath, kitchen, living room, dining area, and another seating area that includes a queen size sleeper sofa.

  • After having been to Galena a few times we decided to grab an Air BnB for this trip. We were not disappointed. This place was super close to all of the shops and the host made things super convenient. We received our door code hours before check-in time and were able to check in a couple hours early. We will definitely try to get this place again in the future!

    Kevin2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

    This is a second floor apartment in the middle of the downtown area. There are other apartments in the building, but this apartment is off of the back deck which makes it a little more private. Our guests love being able to park their car and walk everywhere.

    Located in the original Standard Cigar Company building built in 1850, the Main Street Inn is a quiet, family run lodging that offers: • Comfortable and luxurious rooms that provide an ambience of 1850’s Galena • A location right on Main Street that is in the heart of Galena’s historic district which features great shopping and excellent restaurants • Personal service for every guest, but coupled with offering a feeling of privacy
  • Such a good location. In the middle of all the shopping and restaurants. On the main street but surprisingly quiet in the room even on a Saturday night. Giant cinnamon rolls delivered to your door. A variety of snacks, fruits, oatmeal, and tea for free in the quaint sitting area. You do have to climb a steep flight of stairs, not sure if there are any handicap entrances or not. Really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

  • We had a wonderful experience at the Felt Manor and look forward to staying there again in the near future. We (2 adults, 1 child) stayed at the manor just after New Year. The house was still decorated for the holidays which made for a very festive stay. The beds were comfy and clean and the house was charming and cozy. “Super Host” Dan provided a wonderful happy hour complete with homemade salted caramel squares and assorted refreshments. Breakfast was absolutely amazing and included coffee, tea, 2 types of juice, fresh fruit and berries, Vermont cheddar scrambled eggs, Belgium waffles, and candied twisted bacon. Our waiter, Ted, even wrapped up our left-over waffles so we could enjoy them at home.

All of which are close by. House was clean and there were enough bathrooms to accommodate 10 women. Organizing and communicating with Raechelle was easy. Wish we had more time to enjoy it more, but I highly recommend this property.

  • Every amenity imaginable, perfect place for a weekend getaway or a longer stay! Full kitchen, giant bathroom and in unit laundry, very clean spacious and a perfect location! Best place to stay in Galena.

  • The apartment is just as beautiful as the pictures, if not more so! Very high end finishes and details. Plush towels were appreciated (and plenty of them!) The location can not be any better if you want to be right in the action downtown. Having a designated parking spot was wonderful, and breakfast included was great!! We had a wonderful stay. Because you are right in the action, you will have noise from the late night partiers in Galena, but we just turned on a portable fan that was in the unit (thank you!) and it drowned a lot of that out.

    Jill2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very modern and cozy place. Great location and the added benefit of a parking space. Breakfast was a nice perk too.

    Tammy2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This rental was immaculate, and well thought out. We loved our stay here and look forward to visiting again in the future. It is centrally located on Main street and was within walking distance to everything we wanted to do in town. Having parking was a nice bonus, as the parking situation in Galena is always troublesome. We also enjoyed our complimentary breakfast at the Victory cafe and talking with the owner, Bruce. If you do stay here, check out the instruction book located in the kitchen. It has pictures from the renovation of the space, that are pretty interesting as well as a shadow box above the fireplace filled with interesting items found within the walls during the renovation. A must visit!

  • Expect a very well appointed, comfortable space in the heart of beautiful downtown Galena.

    Colin2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • What a great trip we had visiting Galena and staying in the Victory Suite! Bruce and Nanette exceeded any expectations we had for our stay and they provided the best Airbnb experience we’ve had to date. Bruce made a point to introduce himself during breakfast in the cafe as he welcomed us and offered suggestions of spots to visit in town. If you’re looking to visit Galena this is the place to stay!

    Best view in Galena Deck overlooks pond (with quaking bullfrogs) and the 16 th green of the North Golf course. Enjoy a glass of wine on the porch while watching golfers "pluck" balls into the pond. Perfect direct view of pond and green. Enjoy Galena Territory amenities with owner's passes--- work out gym, tennis, basketball, indoor and outdoor pools. Townhouse adjacent to 24 miles of hiking paths. Horseback riding, winter sports and boating nearby. 14 minutes to downtown Galena
  • We had a wonderful stay! The place was just as advertised and had several lovely touches.

    Erin2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute little spot! The house was full of thoughtful touches, like wine and snacks on the counter, notes about trails (so helpful) and local spots to eat. Unfortunately it was cloudy for our visit, but if the sun was out the view would have been beautiful. Steps away from the trails. Would stay here again.

    Chrissie2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place was pretty clean and the snack basket was a nice touch. The thermostat went up in the middle of the night to 78, but putting it on heat/cool at a lower temp helped. There was a lot of helpful information provided about local activities and a good movie selection. The place was comfortable and definitely a good stay!

    Kaylee2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Everything is beautiful and cozy here. The hosts are impecable at making your first walk-in perfect. It's a short drive from Galena and beautifully located. We loved their fireplace and looking at the stars from the patio. Would definitely stay here again!

    Nzinga2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Far exceeded our expectations! Fantastic, gorgeous location...they literally thought of everything. It was perfect. Highly recommend!!

    Gina2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a find😊😊. We really enjoyed the snacks and extras! The location is perfect and you can’t find a better view. The local tips were very helpful and hosts were responsive!

    Kathy2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place to stay for a weekend in Galena.

    Michael2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Joseph's place was very homey and in a great location. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others. My only complaint was the responsiveness of the host.

    Chris2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The host is very responsive and the location is great. Walking distance to the Main Street and enjoy all the charm that Galena offers. The apartment is very clean and the check-in/out processes are very easy. Highly recommended.

    Kailin2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah and David’s place was a perfect home base for our trip to Galena and the Driftless Area of NW Illinois. Beautiful comfortable space, spotless and clean. While in a historic early 19th century building in the core of town, all the appliances, fixtures and necessities were modern and in perfect working order. Great location in the middle of everything off Main Street. Able to walk to just about everything in town. Although we hardly needed our car in town, there was ample parking in front of the building as well as a reserved spot shortly down the block if needed. Can’t wait to come back and stay with Sarah and David’s the next time we come to visit!

    Michael2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great! We booked it last minute for NYE and couldn't have been happier w the place. Location was amazing, steps from Vinny Vannuchi's (my favorite Italian Restaurant in Galena), and it even had parking in a lot across the street so you're not parked on the busy street over night. Being able to park the car and walk from place to place, restaurants, bars, and not have to drive on New Years Eve was PERFECT. The place was spotless, bed & pull out couch were comfortable, check in and out were a breeze. & a big thank you to the hosts for letting us check out an hour later on the holiday. Perfect.

    Ryan2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place to stay. Just steps away from Main Street with all the restaurants and shopping. Parking options were a plus.

    Shaunnan2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Sarah and David’s place. It was cozy, clean and a close walk to everything!

    Mark2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah andDavid's place is very well located near Main Street and all the shopping and restaurants. It is very homey and clean. They were very accommodating as well.

    Hello There! This apartment has just been completely renovated. We exposed the old original brick and hard wood floors inside. There is comfy queen bed patiently waiting for you! It does have cable TV with a variety of channels for you. There is a kitchen complete with an oven, stove, microwave, fridge. Feel free to use any of them! Channel your inner cook! The bathroom has a shower and tub, and bathroom heater! This apartment is above a coffee shop! It also has the best views!
    This apartment has the best view of Main street with a clear shot of the town, we call it the Million Dollar View! It just been completely renovated. When tearing down walls, we found two old door ways that were plastered over. We took one of the doors that went into the adjacent apartment, and allowed it to become a passage between both. If you were to book this one and The Loft apartment above main, we could open the doors up for you to have a larger space, and a higher occupancy. We dug deeper and learned more about the history of the building. Note: Since this is an older building apartment, it does not have individually controlled climate but it is closely monitored by me (Jack) at a comfortable temperature for you! Note: You will hear noise from the street! This is an old building and sound from main street does come in!
    The town of Galena is kept in a historic look and city hall does a great job of preserving it. There are restaurants, bars, and shops only steps away from the apartment. Below is Big Bill's which is a coffee and lunch place.
  • It’s a very nice place to just to unwind and relax.

    Noelani2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous stay. Best Galena location! If you want to be in the action, this is the place to stay! Jack was a great host who quickly answered all our questions! You do hear street noises, but don’t let that hinder your stay. If you want to park your car and enjoy walking around Galena, this is your home away from home.

    Sandra2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • "Million dollar view" is for real! Awesome location made for a priceless stay; I appreciate Big Bills downstairs too!

    Aaron2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful stay in the cutest town! Great space and communication. We will return! Definitely dine at Big Bills too!

    Sarah2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect for a weekend getaway for two! The place was so cute, clean and easy to feel right at home. Location was perfect, we didn’t have to drive in downtown at all. It rained and snowed during our stay however everything was plowed/shoveled/salted making walking everywhere a BREEZE. It was 10 pm and I didn’t know if I could stay parked out front with the plows, so I emailed Jack and he responded in MINUTES. We plan on making this trip a regular thing, and we will definitely be back to stay here or at any of Jacks places!! What an awesome host. Highly recommend his sand which/coffee shop Big Bills, and the Little Tokyo place across the street!!

    Kalie2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location right downtown. Cute and charming!

    Hailey2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jack's place was awesome! Great location, unbeatable view of Main Street, super stylish and clean! I would definitely stay here again.

    Paul2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Jack was very responsive and quick to address any concerns. The place is designed well with a fully equipped kitchenette and has all the basic amenities for a few days of stay.
