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...

We booked the hillside cottage, it was amazing! We had plans to be out the whole weekend and changed our minds once we opened the cottage. It was spacious, comfortable, very clean, private, and amazingly relaxing. Breakfast was delicious and serviced as soon as we sat down. We walked around the property the last morning and we enjoyed every minute....

This was absolutely the perfect place for us. We stayed in the Pine Cottage, and it was lovely and inviting - right down to the homemade cookies waiting on the table for us when we arrived. Hal was very helpful when we asked for suggestions of places to spend time outdoors and do some hiking. We lucked out with beautiful...

Beautiful cottages and decor, so quiet and peaceful, warm and inviting. Wendi and Hal are awesome people and Hal makes the most amazing Quiche!! We woke up in a cottage surrounded by pine trees, hills, and just a beautiful property. EASY access to downtown Galena and short drive to many activities.

We visited in mid-Feb for 2 nights and stayed in the Meadows Room. We thought overall it was a nice property, the roomy was cozy and a perfect size for us and Wendy/Hal were very kind hosts. We liked that the breakfast was prepared per group/couple, so it was always hot and fresh since they started making it as soon...

Our stay at Hawk Valley Retreat was one to cherish. The grounds are just a short 10 minute scenic drive from down town Gelena. The 10 acre lot was amazing and there counldn't have been one room or cottage without a great view of it! The spring and summer time have to be gorgeous there! Hal's breakfast was fabulous and...

Homemade cookies in the gathering area and a full gourmet breakfast every morning is an easy way to earn a five star rating from me. Hal and Wendy were very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I traveled here for New Years to get away, and it was perfect. The inn keepers were very welcoming and breakfast was delicious. The cabin was clean and romantic. It made for a wonderful weekend!

We had a great time the first time we went and this time they even upgraded us to a cabin for free. They were also very accommodating with our dietary restrictions for breakfast. If you want a nice quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of life this is the place to go.
