Thank you Hal and Wendy, We had a quiet, enjoyable 10th anniversary trip. It's always good to be reminded of God's goodness in His creation, and how small we are. You have a very nice place and we would recommend it to others. Thanks again for your care and excellent service! Brett and Jennifer

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Wendy and Hal were both personable and accommodating. Bonus points for Hal being a wonder in the kitchen for breakfast meals. The property is secluded and about ten miles out of the town of Galena. We are definitely coming back on a future hiatus.

Excellent innkeepers. They accommodated our need for gluten free foods. Would stay there again lots of nature to see. Bet the place is beautiful in the spring when everything is in bloom and the fall foliage would be a sight to see

Couldn't ask to be at a better place on a special weekend! This place made it happen in every way possible. Breath taking views, great food to wake up too, and the owners are very sweet. The weather was mixed but the retreat had what we wanted to stay in and enjoy our hot tub. Cookies delivered to our room...

My husband and I stood in one of the rooms (vs cottage) in the main house for one night. The room was very nice and clean. This is a perfect getaway place for couples...it's quiet and located in a very remote secluded area down the valley... Hal and Wendy are so nice and such great hostesses. We can't wait to...
