We stopped here on our way to Galena and decided to try the slide and the Segway tour. The slide was ok. It was $8 for one ride down the slide and back up via the sky lift. We surprisingly really enjoyed the Segway tour with Destiny. My husband and I had a blast on them and would have gladly...

Our friends kids were having a destination wedding. Since we hadn't been to Galena,IL. We thought this would be a good time to explore the area. We were greeted by a most helpful staff. We found our room to be very spacious and we really liked having a sink and mirror outside of the bathroom, the lighting could be a...

I felt like I was disturbing them each time I approached the front counter. No smiles anywhere and were of little assistance. My room wasn't ready when I arrived at 1:45 and I was told the hotel was fully booked. Check in was at 3pm and I had to wait. Ok, but the parking lot was empty, where was everyone?...

The Staff is ok. Helpful and pleasant but not on the spot at the front desk. Always had to wait for them. Rooms a little run down but clean. Some nice trails to walk. Would not stay again as too far from town. While the rate was good, when combined with cab fare is not a bargain.

We went primarily for the luge slide however we were blown away at the gorgeous views of the Mississippi River and mountains. Would love to come in the winter for skiing. The slide was fun, nothing crazy or a huge attraction for adults, however kids would really enjoy it. The ski lift provides top notch views of the picturesque scenery!

I really wasn't sure what to expect before we stayed here. I have to say that our stay was a pleasant surprise. The hotel was very nice. The staff was really really friendly and eager to please. The food and service in the restaurant was also first rate. I would definitely go back.

My Wife and stayed here during our Anniversary weekend. August 5-7-2016. We had intended to go to Cancun, but a hurricane put an end to that so at the last minute we decided to head to Galena since we had heard many nice things, but had never been there. Every B&B was completely booked so my wife suggested Chestnut Mountain...

We had a great time for our four day stay. The front desk, the rooms, the hotel staff and most of the food staff were fantastic. Did not know what to expect but we really had a wonderful time and people at the resort were very pleasant and helpful. We only had one bad dining experience but that did not...

My family of 5 did the zip line, roller coaster mountain and the ski lift. It was a super hot day but no one seemed to mind bc of all the fun they were having. My favorite was the ski lift I'm not an adventurist like the rest of the family so I rode the ski lift up and back...

Stayed one night in one of the bedroom suites. The suite is very roomy, a little dated but for only one night it was great. We stayed on the river side, view was wonderful, but the windows were really quite gross. Everyone was nice and they have lots of activities. We did the soaring eagle zip line, it was great!...
