We love staying at Hawk Valley Retreat & Cottages. This is our 2nd stay and we can't wait to go back. Wendy and Hal are such a nice couple. It is always nice at breakfast to see where others are going for the weekend.

Once again, my husband and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend get-away at Hawk Valley Retreat & Cottages. We love the Somerset Cottage. I particularly enjoy relaxing on the swing on the back porch. From the hosts to the beautiful, peaceful surroundings, everything here is perfect. This is our third stay, and we have not been disappointed with anything. We look...

Hawk Valley Retreat is an outstanding choice if you want the B&B experience in the countryside of Jo Daviess County. We found that Hawk Valley is surprisingly close to downtown Galena. Nice rooms for a very reasonable price. Breakfast was wonderful as were the hosts.

Thank you for sharing. We too believe that we are just the perfect distance from town to experience the peace and tranquility of the country, yet close enough to town (a mere 10-12 minutes) to experience and enjoy what our lovely town of Galena has to offer. Thanks again. Wendy and Hal

This place was not fancy nor did we expect it to be. Located in the beautiful Galena countryside, amidst the corn and the rolling hills, you will find four cabins and three rooms in the main house. The property was meticulously maintained and had a walking trail, pond with a fountain, and various benches through out for folks to stop...

We chose Hawk Valley Retreat for our 10th anniversary and were pleasantly surprised! Wendy was warm, welcoming, and an attentive host.

My husband and I visited from Cedar Rapids. We're huge nature lovers, so this property was a perfect retreat for us. We knew after the first night that we'd be visiting again. Hal and Wendy were really helpful in making recommendations for where to eat and shop. The breakfast they provided each morning was phenomenal as well.

The view is so amazing. The property is so beautiful. The owners are amazing. They had perfect recommendations for where to check out. The beds were like sleeping on a cloud. The breakfast that they made everyday was some of the most wonderful things I've ate. We knew after the first night we are coming back.
