Thanks for the blessings of 2017!
With each passing year we ring in the New Year with dreams and goals for the year to come as we celebrate and commiserate the year we leave behind. 2017 has left us many beautiful memories as we watched couples begin their lives together making marriage vows here at the Mansion, couples come for one last getaway before they welcomed the birth of a child, and people celebrating anniversaries, birthdays, and just taking time to getaway. We have had the amazing opportunity to listen to your stories and share in your joy. For that we Thank you all!
Over the years we have built relationships with our guests that will last a lifetime. Some guests come so frequently to stay with us; they are like family by now. We are very grateful for your friendships. We look forward to your visits very much, we are so glad our home feels like home to you as well.
2018 will bring so many more happy occasions and there are so many glorious things we have to look forward to. The winter chill and snow will bring our snow bunnies out to the slopes at Chestnut Mountain. As the frost melts and the spring air returns we look forward to all the exciting activities our perfect little town has to offer. This March we will bee bopping at our 6th Annual Galena Goes 50’s Weekend. The summer heat brings golf outings, shopping trips, Hot Air Balloons, and plenty of great festivals. As we cool down for fall and the colors change we have our Annual Ladies Getaway Weekend, Oktoberfest, and our Halloween Parade and Festival. Then we are back to the Winter Holidays and all the warm fireplace snuggles and the spirit of the season fills the streets.
We look forward to it all and we hope to see you this year. Come visit us and experience an event in Galena you haven’t had the chance to before.
Happy New Year to you and yours. Cheers to 2018!!
Carmine and Cheryl
As the weather warms our memories bring us back to lazy summer days, cookouts, playing in pools and fishing trips. Galena has another wonderful tradition, the Annual Balloon Race. Each year in June the skies above Galena are filled with spectacular hot air balloons by day and in the evening the illumination as they glow in the night sky is breathtaking. The 3 daylong event features balloon rides, car shows, and live music. The Balloon Race is not only a wonderful experience for all; it also benefits the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
