Terrible vegan breakfast options despite having alerted the hosts prior to my visit. Their website states that they can cater to all diets, but beware, if you are vegan then they expect you to be content with 2 slices of toast, peanut butter and a teeny tiny bowl of fruit.

Food awesome! Room amazing!

Pros: location, room, and food
Location: we visited the downtown area for dinner and enjoyed the food and drinks.
We stayed in the Mississippi room which had a wonderful view. The Jacuzzi tub overlooking the hills was an amazing experience. The staff and food was awesome. We highly recommend this resort for a weekend getaway.

How often does the train come by?

Pros: The room was very nice.
Cons: Train noise all the time and wish the front desk personnel had asked us about making advance dinner reservations on arrival.
Location: a short 10-12 mile ride into Galena for all activities. Chestnut Mountain skiing is two miles up the road in winter.
As the old Blues Brothers movie quote went..."How often does the train come by?" To which the reply was, " So often you won't even notice it." Not true. The train came by our cottage area of the facility about every half hour, night and day. With the tracks being visible and less than 1/4 mile away, it was quite loud, even with the door shut. The cottage room was very nice and well appointed but the supposed exclusive parking space reserved for our cottage was occupied by others so we had to park elsewhere. We did sit out on the small deck outside our room in the evenings but the view was pretty lame of the Mississippi backwater and the roof of the horse stables below the cottage hill. We also failed to make advance dinner reservations at the facility so we could not eat there for the evening meal even though we were guests. If you choose to stay here make sure you do make dinner reservations if you want to eat on premise.
