10.0 Excellent
Have been to Eagle Ridge numerous times and will probably be back again numerous times. We view it as a place to relax, recharge and rejoice.
Pros: Beautiful environment, peaceful, so Midwest. Several great food options, enjoyed the one we picked. Bar entertainment on Saturday night was rocking. Love the walking trails. Probably walked 6 miles and didn't touch half of the available trails.
Cons: Would have liked a late checkout option. When we asked on check-in, the clerk seemed a bit put off by our request. We didn't pursue it any further as we just wanted a stress-free, relaxing stay.

was supposed to sleep on the sofa bed. The sheets inside were filthy. We called housekeeping to have the bed made up they dropped off sheets in a garbage bag inside the door. For the price we paid the service was terrible
Pros: the pool
Cons: When we arrived on Friday at 11 AM, I was the 9th person in line, with four more behind me. Waited in the line for over half an hour to check in. The room had no shampoo, conditioner or body soap. Just one bar of soap on the bathroom sink. Our daughter

Located in Galena, Galena Log Cabin Getaway is in a rural location, a 4-minute drive from Casper Bluff Land and Water Reserve and 6 minutes from Horseshoe Mound.
3.4 Mediocre
Cons: The area was dreary to say the least but this was probably due to the time of year. I did not stay in the small cabin due to a snow storm coming in and not wanting to get stuck in the tiny cabin. The pictures made it look bigger and nicer then it actually is.
