Plenty to do for families, fun for seniors to watch, but not necessarily to participate.

Thank you for your feedback. We do have many activities here at Chestnut Mountain. Unfortunately some of our more leisurely enjoyable activities have been put on hold because of the weather we've been receiving. We do appreciate your business and hope you'll stay with us again.

Needs Updating

Beautiful place in a beautiful location. Room was fairly priced as well. It needs updating. Still had the old style tv's in the room. No coffee maker in the room but it was served in the lobby. Paint is peeling around doors and windows. Needs a facelift.

Great room with a beautiful view

Pros: It was well maintained and well managed.
Location: The view of the Mississippi River from this ski resort is very impressive, even in the summer. Historic Galena is only seven miles away.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Chestnut Mountain. Our room was clean and quiet, food was very good, and staff was very friendly. The recreational amenities (bobsled slide, ski lift, etc.) were reasonably priced and added value to our experience. I'm certain we'll return, especially since we can enjoy the historic sites in Galena nearby.

Thanks for leaving feedback regarding your recent stay at our Resort. For some reason, I did not receive this feedback until 2 years after you posted the feedback. I hope all is well and you are able to visit our Resort again in the near future!

Nice Getaway

Our room was very clean. Bed very comfortable. The furnishings were a little on the old side - like a sprucing up is needed. The front staff was very nice and helpful. Dinner was great and staff very nice. View was wonderful over looking the river. The only thing it is 8 miles from Galena, but once you are there it is worth the drive. Would diffently go back.
