The Deal

TOP 20 - Sells out quickly!

We've negotiated discounted stays throughout the winter at this romantic, recently renovated Galena resort that offers winter activities like ice-skating and sledding for the kids and top-rated dining and spa treatments for the adults. 

  • $128 per night ... most dates through Feb. 28
  • Stay in a Courtyard Room with one king or two queen beds

“A hidden treasure ... this family-friendly destination is a gem” -- Gayot

Why We Love It

  • All guest rooms were recently renovated in early 2017
  • Plenty of winter activities -- ice skate on their 1.5 acre pond, go cross-country skiing or sledding or relax in the indoor swimming pool
  • Parents will love the Camp Eagle kids club, which includes games, arts and crafts and scavenger hunts


This sprawling 6,800-acre resort along the shores of Lake Galena is "a top pick for a fabulous Midwest getaway" (Midwest Living) thanks to three golf courses, a spa, outdoor activities like horseback riding and hot air ballooning, as well as six on-site restaurants including the top-rated Woodlands Restaurant. 

Eagle Ridge recently completed a renovation of all guest rooms to add pillowtop bedding, flat-panel TVs, walk-in showers and new furniture and carpeting. Courtyard rooms feature balconies or patios, coffeemakers and free Wi-Fi; Main Lodge rooms are similar but closer to the resort's amenities like the indoor pool and Woodlands restaurant & lounge. 

With so much available on site, you might not feel the need to leave, but guests are just 15 minutes from downtown Galena, famous for its picturesque Main Street with boutique stores, chocolate shops, restaurants and art galleries. Forbes calls Galena one of America's Prettiest Towns while Travel + Leisure says it has one of America's Greatest Main Streets.
