My husband and I spent a weekend at the Irish Cottage Inn and enjoyed it very much. We were in a 2-room suite with a fireplace. The fireplace was electric, but still a nice touch. Our room had a jacuzzi tube in the room, along with a wet bar. The king-size bed was very comfortable, perhaps the best we've experienced...

We drove to Galena from the Twin Cities & were greeted cheerfully and warmly by the front desk staff. There were 2 couples in our group & there was plenty of staff to check us in quickly, without waiting. We had a little time to kill before heading to a friends holiday party just 10 miles away, so we had...

In celebration of my husband's recent retirement we took a two night getaway to Galena and the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel. It was absolutely lovely. Quiet and cozy, just what we were looking for on a very cold winter getaway. We purchased the anniversary package and felt that it was a great deal. Two night's lodging, Champagne and a nice...

My husband surprised me with a short mini-moon after our wedding at the Irish Cottage, and it was absolutely perfect! From check-in to check-out, we were greeted with nothing but friendliness and hospitality by the staff. We stayed in the Brian Boru Presidential Suite - the perfect setting for relaxing and winding down after an incredible wedding weekend. Champagne and...

Our family was planning our first ski trip to nearby Chestnut Mountain and found this gem for accommodations. It was perfect! Great rooms with siting area, microwave and refrigerator. Separate sink from bathroom was perfect for a family of four to get ready. Kids loved the pool and the hot tub easiness after skiing all day. We loved the included...

The room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. The linens were great and the room had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. We did not eat dinner there but we did have desserts. One was a chocolate flourless cake (more like cheesecake) and the other we ordered was pound cake with strawberries. Both good. Would stay there...

A very disappointing 2 night stay for my wife and I. We were kept up for most of the night by the people who had the room above us sounding like a herd of buffalo. Also, we decided to have dinner in the pub the second night. We sat at the bar and waited for someone to come and wait...

We had a standard king room. Came with a fridge and coffee maker. Microwave not in room, but there was one near the lobby I think guests could use. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The trail out behind the hotel was shorter than expected but still offered pretty scenery and a great view of the surrounding area. Very close...

When schedules with family didn't pan out, my husband and I decided to go out of town for a couple days to do something different for Thanksgiving. We decided on the Irirsh Cottage Boutique Hotel, mostly due to its charm on the website and the excellent reviews. We also noticed they served Thanksgiving dinner so we thought why not? It...
