What a great place to stay. The room and bed were more than very comfortable. The host and hostess are real and genuine people. The breakfast was not only delicious but more than we could eat. In other words we WILL be back for alonger stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the country, watching birds, walking in the rain, seeing the beautiful flowering crab apple tree right outside the window. Wendy and Hal were welcoming and made us feel at home. The room was spacious enough to spread out a little and we loved having our own outside door. The food for breakfast was amazing...

Thanks so much for your kind words. Appreciate the feedback on the dust as well. Sometimes having a country driveway and the dust that it kicks up isn't all it's cracked up to be. More diligence in this area. We look forward to your next visit. Hal and Wendy

Friendly accommodations and great homemade breakfast. The stays here are always relaxing and comfortable. Feels like a second home. Great place to meet up with friends. Enjoy the walks around the property and the evenings on the porch with a beautiful view.

The Somerset cottage is so perfect and quaint. Every breakfast was amazing and Wendy and Hal couldn't be any nicer. If you are going to Galena this is def the place to stay. The entire property is very scenic and peaceful. We had a small wedding in the barn ... Simple romantic and elegant. It was every thing we wanted.

It was the first weekend that my boyfriend and I spent away together. Despite the not so great weather, we had a wonderful experience at Hawk Valley. It provides a comfortable atmosphere to relax and enjoy the company of the one closest to you. I would definitely stay there again in the future.

My husband and I spent a wonderfully relaxing weekend at Hawk Valley in early March 2017. The property is beautiful and well maintained with a plethora of wildlife. One of the best things was the breakfast each morning. I am a vegetarian and Wendy and Hal kindly adjusted each breakfast menu so that it was vegetarian friendly. Hawk Valley is...

Thank you Hal and Wendy, We had a quiet, enjoyable 10th anniversary trip. It's always good to be reminded of God's goodness in His creation, and how small we are. You have a very nice place and we would recommend it to others. Thanks again for your care and excellent service! Brett and Jennifer
