I have been going to Eagle Ridge since I was a child. We always rented a house in the territory! So much fun. We enjoy all the restaurants - especially Woodlands. Since the house has a full kitchen, we tried to cook most of our meals. Lots of great memories in Galena. The pool with the retractable roof is awesome! Clean fitness center as well. Love the hiking trails and my dad loves The General golf course! Something for everyone at Eagle Ridge. 
You can rent boats by the hour too! I have never stayed in the actual inn, so not sure how to describe or rate that part. Check out the General Store while you're there too. They have a great seafood pasta (cold side dish) as well as steaks and snickerdoodle cookies!

Absolutely beautiful resort. I recently attended a wedding and stayed in a spacious 5 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath villa for the weekend.

The wedding ceremony was spectacular overlooking Lake Galena. The brunch style reception menu was delicious, and the bar tending on point! 

We tried the Woodstone restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, service, and food.

Everything was fantastic and I would love to visit again!

"Eagle Ridge is a beautiful property that provides the perfect backdrop for your destination wedding. What I love most, in addition to the breathtakingly beautiful property, is that regardless of the season, Eagle Ridge is an amazing place not only for wedding ceremonies, but also for the couple's wedding festivities. Eagle Ridge offers a variety of options for events such as rehearsal dinners and farewell brunches."

"The wedding planner, Megan Carter, was OUTSTANDING! Her professionalism, eye for perfection, upbeat personality, made our day FANTASTIC. She was accommodating and patient as our guest's reservations, golf tee times, seating requests, changed almost daily :))! She was a pleasure to work with. The entire staff at Eagle Ridge are superior. Megan my wedding planner, Chrystal at the front desk, Don the golf pro, Byron the bartender.....are considered friends to us. I would highly recommend Eagle Ridge to anyone looking for a pressure free, almost relaxing wedding planning experience."

We held our October 2014 wedding at Eagle Ridge, and couldn't be happier we chose this venue. We planned from afar (Boston), and the wedding coordinator, Megan, made us feel 100% at ease regarding the details of the big day. She was quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and went above and beyond to make the wedding day flow smoothly (this included everything from coordinating with our vendors to coming to the rescue with a sewing kit when I ripped the train of my gown). The front desk staff, bartenders, and servers were incredibly friendly and helpful -- several out of town guests commented on the Midwestern hospitality. The food was fantastic, including the wedding meal, next day brunch, and on-site restaurants. Finally, the setting was absolutely gorgeous. The fall foliage was unbelievable and we were very happy with everything from the guest rooms/homes to the ballroom. Highly recommend Eagle Ridge for your big day!

“I want to thank you and the entire staff at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa for the amazing job you all did. Several of my guests knew their servers and bartenders by name with stories about special things they did. I have heard nothing but rave reviews about the service and food... Matt walked up to the bar for the first time and without having to say a word, the bartender handed Matt a Hinanu (Tahitian Beer) and said, I believe this is what you are looking for.  Throughout the entire process you have not only been a joy to work with, but you have been my rock by being patient through my indecision, steering me when needed and encouraging me when I doubted myself. Thank you so much!!...I already miss working with you!...”

“GREAT reception!!! Thank you for everything. All went very smoothly, and the ballrooms were absolutely beautiful. The dinner was fabulous!! Your staff is to be commended...our guests gave them raving compliments as to how attentive and friendly they were. Friends and family were thrilled with accommodations. I just wish I could turn back the clock and start the reception all over again, and again...”

“Not only was Galena the most scenic and beautiful place, it was worth every moment and memory we created. The resort was more than accommodating; all our guests felt like they were VIPs for the weekend. We reserved a group of houses in the same area and our family and friends had the time of their lives. There were so many activities that our family and friends made a whole vacation out of our wedding weekend.

The personal touches Eagle Ridge provides cannot be matched. The wedding coordinator was amazing!! She had so many unique ideas and with her experience she could really help out with the details. Because of the expertise of the coordinator, I got to do what every bride dreams about, sit back, relax and take it all in. I could go on and on about how the food was amazing, how the staff was superb and how great everyone treated my guests. . . not just focusing on the wedding party but truly on each guest. There's no way I could have had this experience without Eagle Ridge and their staff of professionals. Thank you for making our wedding a true moment in time.”
