“The place was pretty clean and the snack basket was a nice touch. The thermostat went up in the middle of the night to 78, but putting it on heat/cool at a lower temp helped. There was a lot of helpful information provided about local activities and a good movie selection. The place was comfortable and definitely a good stay!”
The Bawden Furnace Schoolhouse was built in the 1870's and is close to downtown Galena (3.2 mi.), art and culture. The rustic ambiance, natural surroundings, and airy floor plan with wood burning stove make it easy to relax, unplug and unwind. The schoolhouse is perfect for couples and solo adventurers who are looking for a true getaway.
“From the first butterfly and hummingbird garden welcome to all of the "little extra" touches (wildflowers, milk in the frig, hats to borrow, outdoor survival kit), Trisha and Mark's cottage stole our hearts. The charm and peacefulness of the space is surpassed only by the beauty of the woods, prairie, and future Oak tree savannah on the property. Trisha and Sienna greated us within thirty minutes of arrival to ensure that we had all that we needed. Her pre-trip communication was timely, detailed, and provided adventures we would have not known about, if not for her counsel. We are so grateful that we were drawn to the cottage and even more grateful to have been able to spend time with Trisha and Mark to share stories of love of nature, their plans for the amazing plot of land, and the beginnings of a friendship. This is a place that we will return to again and again to hold hands on the porch, listen to the song of the frogs, and stroll along the lush hills and valleys surrounding the cottage. It is a perfect get away to calm, revive, and connect with those you love.”
This 1840's miner's cottage in the heart of Galena is only 3 blocks from beautiful, historic and fun Downtown Galena Main Street, but is far enough to have quiet times in the 1/25 acre yard of perennial gardens as well the expansive 2 story front porch, and 3rd porch off the kitchen, with gas grill. The house sits on a corner lot in the Galena National Historic District. The bathroom and kitchen are newly remodeled and the entire house is designer decorated. Beautiful!
“Stayed four nights starting Memorial Day and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All the rooms in the cottage are spacious to us. Three TVs are provided(kitchen, bedroom, and large one in lower level). You can use the garage which has an entrance to the kitchen. Liked the two Adirondack chairs on the main floor veranda We would echo all the positive comments highlighted by previous guests. They were accurate and informative. We like the cottage - and Galena - so much that we have reserved five nights this coming October. Hopefully, all restrictions will be lifted so we can frequent Dillons as well as other restaurants downtown Thanks, Craig, for offering a special, historic place”
