    We must have booked this vacation house 5 different times over the last 4 years. Our kids love coming here. With the loft bedrooms, they feel like they are sleeping in an indoor treehouse. The staff have been very attentive every time that we stayed and always responded regardless of the request that we had. Looking forward to more family vacations with A Great Escape.

    My family and I picked a perfect time to visit Galena in all its glory. The sights, people, places and especially the home on Lookout Trace. We were very please with everything your comfy rental had to offer. My family had more then enough room to be comfortable and cozy. We definitely will recommend Home Away to other family and friends and will most definitely return to visit Galena in the near future.

    The house was better than in the pictures. If you are looking for a private, secluded, peaceful get-away, this is it. Everything was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Hot tub was a bonus and the back deck was great to watch the stars and enjoy good conversation. We are definitely coming back!

    a guest from Estherville, IA recommends this vacation rental

    Home was clean and comfortable. Five adults stayed easily with all in beds. Directions to home were easy to follow and management was easy to get ahold of before our stay. Answered several questions for me via email and promptly called back when a message was left. We enjoyed the hot tub. Saw another review commenting that the tub was not directly accessible from the house and required walking down a flight of stairs. Easily remedied by bringing a cooler for soda etc. My bed was very comfortable and I never heard any complaints from the ladies I was with. Definitely recommend!

    Craig T from Stockton, IA recommends this vacation rental

    The location was perfect, secluded yet not too far from the pool, riding stable, lodge or even Galena. The home was very nice inside. The hot tub was nice to use. We enjoyed the gas grill the first night upon arrival to fix our dinner. The only negatives were it would have been nice to have a fire pit for making smores and ants were somewhat of an issue, but I'm sure they are everywhere around there. Overall a very nice experience and we'd return if available.

    The house was perfect, just what we wanted. It was located in a beautiful countryside area. Granddaughter especially enjoyed the park and the pool. Having a country store nearby was great. Only problem was the grill did hot work. But we only found that out the last night of our stay. Customer service offered to switch it out - but since it was for our last night we opted to use the oven instead.

    Annette E from Oswego, IL recommends this vacation rental

    Loved staying at Lookout Trace!Plenty of room for the 6 of us (except for the kitchen - it's made to hold one person.)
    The outdoor hot tub with the forest view was a really nice amenity. The house was very clean. The location was close to downtown Galena (15 minutes). Only 3 complaints - shower head in one bath sprayed too hard (it hurt), water filter on kitchen faucet leaked, and landscaping lights along steps to house didn't turn on (safety issue). I informed the management after our stay of these issues, so I'm sure they'll be taken care of.

    • Manager Responded on 5/27/2016

      Thanks Annette! We so agree that a vacation home is a much better option than a hotel. Why not get the whole house and so much more for sometimes less money? The issues at the home were forwarded on to the owners who have already addressed them. We appreciate all feedback at our homes and know that we'll see you again soon!

    We stayed for three nights between Christmas and New Years with our four adult children. We have absolutely no complaints. It was clean, comfortable, and had a beautiful view especially when it snowed. There was even Christmas decorations including a small tree. The outdoor hot tub was the perfect place to watch the snow fall. Booking was easy, and everything was exactly as described.

    Sue R from Green Bay, WI recommends this vacation rental

    We all so enjoyed our stay in the Galena Territories. The setting is so beautiful and rustic. We made use of the hot tub under a beautiful clear night full of stars. Had a warm cozy night next to the fireplace, and had coffee in the morning on the beautiful deck looking over a wooded ravine. Turkeys came through and a huge buck visited the property each morning. A short drive to Galena for shopping, sightseeing, and great food. Will definitly try to stay here on our next trip to Galena. The accomadations were as stated and slept 6 comfortable using the 5 beds and one futon. We found turning on the porch light when leaving in the morning was helpful when returning later at night as it is very dark without the aid of the porch light. We cooked breakfast and the kitchen provided everything we needed and seemed well stocked. All appliances we used were in good working order. The linens were clean and well stocked. The booking arrangement was made very easy and painless with helpful details provided a couple days before arrival.

    We wanted to rent a smaller home as it was just my wife and myself. We choose this "Ridge Topper". The home was well appointed and contained everything needed. We spent three nights but didn't have a chance to use the hot tub.

    This is the first time I rent a VRBO. Everything was done on-line with no problems.

    We will rent this property again in the future.

    Wanted to spend a few days in the Galena area with the family. This cabin, at the rate, seemed like a good fit for us. We were pleasantly suprised at the size and condition of the cabin. Plenty of room for five of us. The kitchenwas a touch small, but totally usable. We had an issue with carpenter ants, but in the woods, it's to be expected. Overall, it was a fantastic ace for us to enjoy a few days away, close to home and yet totally away. Very happy!! We will be back!
