"Dan and Kellie have thoughtfully equipped this beautiful, immaculate, secluded cabin just 20 minutes from The Galena Territory both inside and out. We truly enjoyed the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets seen through the endless windows and enormous deck. There were thoughtful touches in the construction of the home using trees from the property and on the breakfast bar which was embellished with wood from a tree Dan planted in his childhood that was taken down by lightning. Dan was extremely attentive throughout our stay by keeping us informed from check in to check out and always just a call or text away, should we have any questions. I definitely would recommend his cabin to anyone looking for a outstanding experience - we can’t wait to come back!!" - Karen

"This property is beyond gorgeous. Words can’t even do justice. From the cozy bed to the beautiful details in the cabin, and don’t even get me started in the shower! This was one of my favorite places I’ve ever stayed! My daughter and I made memories we will carry with us forever. It was the perfect trip. Dan and Kellie were the nicest hosts and so thoughtful and very gracious. We can’t wait to go back. They gave us the best food recommendations and hiking tips too! We took a quick drive to downtown Elizabeth and Galena where the cutest little shops are. A must stay!!" - Cassandra
