    The Birds Nest stay was exceptional!! Our group couldn't have asked for a better weekend getaway- cooler weather, sunshine, lots of room within the house, etc. Just a short drive into downtown and close to the winery vineyard- highly recommended stay! Will be back in the future!!

    This was a perfect weekend. This house was exactly what it was listed in the ad. Great location, easy access, the kitchen was fully stocked. We really needed to bring only our clothes and toiletries. I would recommend this home to anyway and we are already talking a return visit.
    Thank you!!!!

    a guest from schererville, IN recommends this vacation rental

    This place was beautiful and so was the house. We enjoyed our time here and if we come back to Galena, we would rent this place again. The only complaint that we had was that we didn't know that the grill was a charcoal grill and not a gas grill. Everywhere else we have stayed had a gas grill. The reason I didn't give it a 5 for the cleanliness is because there were quite a few cob webs and spiders in the house, but because it is in in the woods, we understood.

    Karin C from Streamwood, IL recommends this vacation rental

    We went to the Bird's Nest for a Girls' Weekend and had an absolutely wonderful experience. The exquisite "bird-
    themed decor aligned perfectly with the surroundings. The screened in porch was a delightful addition as it gave us the opportunity to relax, have a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, and just talk without the annoyance of insects. The three levels, with a bedroom and bath on each level, provided us with privacy. The management company was very professional and timely in their correspondence with us. I would highly recommend this home to others and intend to come back in the future. I imagine the surroundings must be breathtaking in the Fall.

    We stayed for a week with our two adult children and their significant others. We loved that everyone had a bedroom in a separate part of the house. The screened-in back porch and the hot tub on the lower deck were favorites! We grilled out a lot on the smoker/grill (no gas grill) and appreciated that there was a washer and dryer. The kitchen, although a bit small, was well stocked.

    Our girls weekend was wonderfully spent at the 2 Cumberland Spur location. It was very cozy, fully equipped and clean. The two fireplaces were used every day, as was the hot tub. The Galena area has lots to offer and a house was a perfect setting for our girls weekend vs. hotel rooms so we could spend more time socializing and relaxing.

    We had a family gathering and were so delighted with our stay. The instructions for getting in were very clear and the house was clean, comfortable and just like the photos and description promised. The fireplace and hot tub were so nice to have with chilly weather. An ice storm moved in before our daughter and her husband left and the owner was so helpful in getting a sand truck to come and help them get out of the driveway! Service above and beyond!! There are a number of places to eat in Galena but we also enjoyed being able to relax and prepare our own meals and snacks. The setting is very beautiful, quiet and peaceful!
