The staff was very accommodating, allowing us to make a last minute room change when we saw the darling cottages and realized that’s where we wanted to stay. Since we were planning to stay 3 nights, this was the perfect “room” for us. You can sit on the front porch and take in the gorgeous sunsets. There is a large table for meals and plenty of room to lounge by the fireplace. The bathroom is updated and roomy. The soaking tub is Hugh. We did not use it but it looked inviting. You are 5 minutes from Main Street, Galena, but a world away in tranquility. We would love to come back here with our kids and grandkids.

Loved the view and quiet setting. Very peaceful and relaxing. Room was clean and comfy. Only complaints I have was more lighting needed outside for evening ,especially the steps by the firepit.It was pitch black and we had to use our phones to see the steps. Also, a walkway from the resort to the pavillion would be great so you dont have to walk on wet grass in the morning or at night. The room, though clean, had a very musky pine scent. So strong I was not able to sleep at all that night. It burned in my nose and in my throat. That reason alone is why I would not stay again. Otherwise it was a great place and so close to Main street for shopping and dining. Staff was helpful and friendly but I cannot get passed that strong smell in the room.

First let me say I couldn't give the resort 5 stars only because it's not a 5-star property. If you're looking for the most elegant place to stay, this is not it, but if you want the most peaceful and relaxing stay with the best scenery and atmosphere, then you've come to the right place. The pictures on the website may not even be as good as the grounds actually look. The views are breathtaking. The scenery is so beautiful and relaxing that I almost didn't want to leave. The grounds are well maintained, and their sitting areas are well thought out. If I could've stayed outside, I would have--and I'm an indoors guy! As for the accommodations, they are adequate. I only saw the King room in the main lodge. There are 8 rooms in the lodge--4 Kings and 4 Queens. They are basically identical. Nothing special, but laid out well and met our needs. We stayed in room 4, which is the room with the best view. There are also a couple of cottages and apartments to fit larger groups which I imagine are of slightly higher quality than the main lodge. I look forward to trying a cottage when I get back. The resort is pet friendly, which has it's plusses and minuses. It makes complete sense for the grounds that it's pet friendly, but if you don't have pets, I'm not sure you want to take the chance that pet smells may linger in your room. Not all rooms allow pets, but the majority do. I'm not a pet owner, but I'm sure if I were, my pet would've loved LeFevre as much as I did. The staff is awesome and friendly. The only downside is that they only offer continental breakfast instead of the full breakfast that the many Bed & Breakfast inn's in the area provide. As for amenities, there is a small pool and deck area, a fire pit area, an outdoor covered seating area, a gazebo and paddle boats. Not a whole lot, but definitely sufficient for a place that will never have more than 50 people staying at a time. Overall I was extremely pleased with the resort. I will definitely come back here next time I visit Galena. If you're looking for a nice, relaxing place to stay, and don't need 5-star accommodations or restaurants onsite, then this is the place for you.

We just returned from a four night stay at that the Garden View Apartment. It was a family get away with three kids and four adults and the accommodations were perfect for us. We loved everything about our stay! The location is perfect. The inn offers such gorgeous hilltop views and is so close to town. Our kids also loved the fire pit for s’mores, peddle boats, and the swimming pool. The staff was also so kind and helpful with booking. We can’t wait to come back.

We were looking for a pet friendly hotel and the LeFevre showed up on our search. The resort was about 5 minutes from downtown Galena IL. The resort was out in the country with a beautiful view of the hills. When checking in they gave us a bag with a doggie toy and treats! It was a huge hit with a Cavachion!! When we went to our room, it was very spacious with a sitting area, working fireplace and was very clean. The bed was very comfortable and shower was very good. The weather was rainy and we were unable to use the pool, or paddleboat. They had grills, covered area for a picnic and great ice maker. When we checked in they told us the Fried Green Tomato restaurant was very popular place to eat, even though it was a 45 minute wait the restaurant did not disappoint. We would highly recommend the Le Fevre Inn Resort on your visit to Galena!!
