Our son just had his wedding here and everything was wonderful. Miss Tammy went above and beyond to make it a special day. The cabins were perfect and the property was beautiful. Miss Tammy even built a bonfire upon special request. We will definitely be back!

We loved our time at Allen's! Tammy is a wonderful hostess and very knowledgeable about the area. It's only a few miles from downtown Galena but feels like another world away. So nice, peaceful, and relaxing! The cabin we were in was so nice and cozy. The jacuzzi was fantastic, especially after walking around all day. We will definitely make...

Spent the night here with my daughter and our large dog. Clean, friendly, and make you feel at home. Will definitely be back, Tammy and her mom have a great place here. They have 5 cabins and a coach house, one of the cabins accommodates 6 people.

I booked here last minute this past Friday for the next day for one night. I spent a lot of time contacting places for my son and his fiancé. He suprised us with his homecoming from his first deployment so I wanted to find a place for them for a short getaway! I emailed the inn keeper and she did...

This place is awesome. Grant's Cabin will forever be a place my wife and I remember. You walk into a REAL log cabin, it's 150 years old, you can see each and every axe cut in the logs from 150 years ago! They've also tastefully incorporated a nice bathroom and a hot tub into the cabin. This past weekend was...

We were looking for something quiet and relaxing and found it here. It was a quick last minute get away and when we called Sunday morning there was availability for the next two nights in Grant's cabin. We had never heard of this place before and decided to venture out from home in McHenry County. This was absolutely perfect for...

Wanted to get away to a quiet place after a hectic week, this looked like the spot for just some relaxing. The cabin itself could use some upgrades for paying 225.00 a night. Such as the TV and bed. My computer monitor at home is bigger than the one in the cabin. The bed was very uncomfortable and small, don't...

I cannot stress enough the fact that when you check in you are told numerous times to call if you have ANY problems at all and we will gladly do what we can to make your stay more pleasurable. I always have another cabin or guest house available for transfers if you are unhappy with your cabin. All of the...

We loved our stay!! The cabin was so cozy and cute; we quickly felt at home and comfortable. The wood burning fireplace and jacuzzi tub were perfect for a quiet, peaceful weekend away from it all. Only a five minute drive to Main Street but still far enough away to feel secluded, it's the perfect location. Highly recommend and will...

What a lovely place to stay. As long as you go into your visit with the expectation that you're staying in a very old antique log cabin, you'll love it and have a wonderful stay. We found the habit of leaving your signed wine bottle cork behind a quaint tradition that we gladly followed. Our cabin, the Smith, was conveniently...

Thank you for your review!! As stated when you checked in, you can call any time for ANYTHING. If you would have pointed out the light bulbs that were burnt out I would have gladly done what I could to replace them. As it stands, I can't find any cabins with 4 bulbs burnt out....give me a call or send...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled a mere 2 miles from Main St. and surrounded by 120 acres of pasture and field, are five rustic, original 1800s log cabins updated with luxurious amenities such as double whirlpool tubs, wood burning fireplaces, satellite tv, central heat/ac, continental breakfast and more. Situated on the Galena IL boyhood estate of Civil War General Augustus Chetlain, this quiet, pastoral country setting is the ideal antidote for the stress of city living. The perfect "get away from it all" location without having to travel for conveniences. We allow tent camping and you can bring your own grill. Enjoy a campfire in the fire pit or arrange for a HUGE bonfire while you're here (weather permitting). Family owned and operated with many recent upgrades. New sofas, new mattresses, etc. ... more   less
