First let me start with explaining just how high our expectations tend to be...my husband has worked in hotels and hospitality for nearly 20 years...and my degree is in interior design...we can tend to be highly critical and take note of missed details easily...but the owner Joan and the Owl House have far exceeded every expectation and desire we could have had. The location is perfect! The design is a phenomenal blend of decadent decor & modern amenities, while still maintaining the interest and integrity of the buildings historical roots! Such a perfect weekend get away...I had thought earlier in the trip that the Owl House would be the ONLY place we’d stay in Galena moving forward...but after learning she’s expanding her locations...we’re excited to try Joan’s other offerings...she’s got a knack for creating the perfect ‘Galena Experience’! Joan we look forward to being reoccurring guests of yours for years to come!
