Roz Varon,  ABC 7 Chicago

Dear Ruth & Frank,

Thank you for being such amazing hosts!  Your log cabins are delightful -- 
I slept so well!  The alpacas are the coolest -- especially Quincy (who thinks he's a dog)!

Thank you for a wonderful experience all the way around!.

We enoyed a pleasant and relaxing stay at the Galena Log Cabin Getaway.  The cabins were a great departure point to explore the numerous natural areas -- including many DNR-maintained sites.

There are so many things to do and we will be back soon to the Galena area.

Frank and Ruth are wonderful hosts.

We had a lovely stay here. The lightning bugs were so groovy.  We loved the isolation but felt safe with our gorgeous alpacas guarding us. This was our first family ho holiday with our baby boy. He loved the alpacas and had great fun in the tub.  We thought the cabin was such a little time machine, we decided to not even switch on our TV!  G, P & O

We want to appreciate you for all your kindness!  The cabin is beautiful;  it's so cozy and warm, I felt like I'm at home.  We had great breakfast; it was so nice of you to bring that lovely basket with food!  The cabins are close to ski resort where we spent unbelievable day of snowboarding.  O, A, A, V &  Z

Frank said we would see the stars but we got T-storms and high winds our only night here!  In spite of high winds, our sturdy cabin stood firm!  In the morning, the sun came out & we could hear a nest of birds being fed breakfast in the eaves.  The cabin is unique and comfortable.  Our short visit with the alpacas last night was delightful.  Thank you.  T, S & B

The kids loved every second of our time here & wish they had more time.  The boys really enjoyed the trails and the stars.  Mom got some rest & that's exactly what we came for.  Thanks for offering this beautiful place.  Blessings. The H family

This place is a wonderful getaway!  Our time here was too short.  We danced under the moonlight, got cozy by the bonfire, fed the alpacas, and breathed in the fresh air --- rejuvenated our souls.  Thank you to Ruth & Frank for providing this great experience.  Looking forward to visitng again.  Good things...  C & B

What a gift to be able to sleep in a log cabin and under a blanket of stars.  We love the alpacas out our front door.  Loved the experience.  Thank you.  H, C & E

Our Wedding Day!  We arrived around 5:30 p.m.after a long, busy day. We built a fire in the ring out back then settled in.  Sitting around the fire was a nice relaxing way to end a perfect day with our Matron of Honor and Best Man.  Mark played the guitar while everyone enjoyed the starry night.  We turned in about 11 pm. D & K

Thanjs for the wonderful accommodations and the terrific star party.  Those were the best stargazing conditions I've seen since my trip to South Africa.  Magical!  We'll be back soon.  DW
