We had a wonderful second stay at Pine Hallow. The innkeepers live right down the road and are very kind and hospitable. The house is very cute and well kept and feels just like home. They just opened up a 3rd room at the inn, but the property and the house still feels private and quiet. Would highly recommend this property for a couple looking for a weekend retreat or someone interested in exploring Galena with all the comforts of home!

Facility has only two rental rooms. There were no other occupants during our stay so we had the place to ourselves. Nice. Rooms are well done and very clean. Continental breakfast was a nice touch. Location was awesome. In the "country", but close to town. Very quiet and peaceful with bonus deer sightings. Go relax!

We have just returned from a weekend getaway to Pine Hollow, and we were not disappointed. So very relaxing, comfortable bed, large room, cozy fireplace. The property is gorgeous, and Larry was a perfect host. Delicious breakfast and coffee. We will be back again!

The park like property was so pretty. Enjoyed sitting on the porch. We didn't get to meet the hosts as they were called away. Rooms were very clean . It was warm and rainy so did not use the fireplace. Would be very nice in the fall! Since the hosts did not live at the Inn, we could have use of the micro and refrigerator in the kitchen.. Breakfast was simple with pastry, fruit and yogurt. As we are not yogurt eaters, we would have preferred at least one hot breakfast with eggs. Otherwise our stay was very nice. We were there for 3 nights.

My husband and I just returned from an enjoyable trip to Galena and a delightful stay at Pine Hollow Inn. This gem is only a mile from Galena but as soon as you turn into the driveway you enter a different world - one of peace and tranquility. You can feel your blood pressure lower as you take in the beautiful view of rolling lawn and trees. The inn itself is like a farmhouse with large sunny and airy bedrooms with comfortable king size beds and a sitting area with a working fireplace. Beautiful views can be seen from the bedroom and bathroom. There is a charming front porch to enjoy your morning coffee and a fire pit to relax by in the evenings. A delicious continental breakfast is served at the kitchen table - so comfortable and homey! Innkeepers Larry and Sally are warm and welcoming. They make you feel like you are part of the family. I will definitely be returning to this inn and highly recommend it to anyone who might be planning a trip to Galena.

Pine Hollow is nestled in a beautiful valley with a pretty little creek and large welcoming trees. It is so relaxing and peaceful. The rooms are large and clean with comfortable, firm King beds and a nice fireplace. Each room has it's own bath, a large tv and coffee maker. Breakfast was provided in the morning in the warm comfortable kitchen. Larry was a very congenial, helpful host and we definitely enjoyed our stay there. Can't wait to go back for a longer stay!

A perfect getaway a mere mile from downtown but it feels a state away. Watching the leaves drift down in the morning while we enjoyed our coffee was magical. Our host Larry could not have been more cordial and welcoming. The inn is beautiful and inviting. the recent updates to the rooms marries the past and present in harmony. I cannot wait to visit again. Pine Hollow becomes a part of you.

As we turned onto the private lane of Pine Hollow, we immediately felt our stressed shoulders lower as we looked around at the serene landscape. Perfect for a quick weekend getaway! As we drove towards the Inn, we were surrounded by picturesque views at every angle. Set against a stunning backdrop of rolling hills, the Inn combines serenity and comforts of home, all in one. The amenities are incredibly thoughtful with guest's comfort in mind. From handcrafted soaps to television and fireplace in every suite, I wish we were able to stay longer than just the weekend. At night, we were able to look up through our suite's skylight to see the stars in clear sky. We awoke early to take a walk and just when we set out, we were greeted by three deer across the stream. Perfect start to a new day. We will definitely be back! Thank you, Pine Hollow Inn!

Pine Hollow is my home away from home. It's very peaceful. A great place to recover from the stress of every day life. Located in a beautiful country setting with many trees and a bubbling brook. Town is close enough if you care to visit. Otherwise just sit back and enjoy the quiet. The innkeepers are very attentive to your daily needs. We enjoyed our breakfast in the country kitchen. Take the time to relax and enjoy the surroundings.
