We traveled to Galena for a 5 day Thanksgiving weekend with some friends and our teenage daughter. This home is just beautiful. It is very spacious and extremely clean. We had everything we needed to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner; the kitchen is fully stocked with pots/pans/utensils/dishes, etc. The bedrooms and bathrooms are wonderful. The beds are VERY comfortable! The owner had the home decorated for Christmas with a Christmas tree and lights. It made the cozy living area even cozier. A generous amount of firewood was available. All in all - a great trip! We can't thank you enough for sharing your wonderful home. We will be back.

Owner response: I am so glad you had a nice time at our home in Galena. There is so much to do in the area throughout the year whether it is shopping, skiing, sledding skating, Owners Club pool, hiking or riding horses. It is all within the Galena area. I will look forward to hearing from you in the future. Jennifer
My husband and I and our dog stayed here for a long weekend. We were looking for a pet friendly property, and we found it. Even though it was just the 3 of us we wanted a place where we would be somewhat secluded but have access easy to Galena. It was very easy to get to Highway 20 from this property. We did venture into the rest of the Territory and with all the winding roads and limited GPS we were glad we chose this property over one that was further in. The Territory is filled with walking trails and a trail head was just across the main street. We also had a nice grassy area just outside the house for our dog. The house was very clean and comfortable. It was too cold outside for us to enjoy the screened in porch, but the photo on the website does not do it justice, it fits a 6 person table with ease and is very well kept for an outdoor space. The owner was very friendly and accomidating, and very quick with payment and arrival details. I would defiantly stay here again and recommend this property to family.

Everything we could have asked for

Big kitchen with a nice kitchen table adjoining. Big living room. Big screened in porch with a nice big table. Big bedrooms. Nice bathrooms. Nice deck. You just need to know it isn't walking distance to Galena. But we came for a family get together and for our group it was great. Plenty of places to get away and talk. We are thinking very strongly of renting it again next year. Thank you Jennifer.

Second Stay at this Property...continues to impress
Second Stay at this Property...continues to impress
This was my family's second stay at Jennifer's home in Galena. Everything was perfect as it was before with the addition of a firepit that enhanced the evening activities! We made full use of the owners' club, the marina and golfed at the adjacent course. This property has the perfect set up for togetherness and needed alone time for my family. All the amenities of home and the opportunity to travel with our pup makes this this perfect place to vacation. Thank you again, Jennifer.

What a wonderful house. Our group thoroughly enjoyed the spaciousness of this house and the screened in porch. I would recommend for a nice quiet get-away. It was near Galena that has a lot of historical sites and neat shops.

Thanks to the owner for making the reservation process including quotes quick and efficient.Upon arrival we encountered an issue with our reservation involving a miscommunication. We called the owner and she handled the situation immediately and much to our satisfaction. We stayed in this lovely home for 6 nights. A couple of times we needed items ie. firewood and an outside lightbulb. These were provided in a timely manner.We enjoyed a lovely family get together with my 2 children,their spouses and 2 small grand children. This home is definitely family friendly. The house is wonderfully appointed and there was enough room for everyone to have plenty of living space. Testament to the fact that my children are still talking to one another and to us. We did alot of cooking and eating while staying there. The kitchen had all of the items that we needed to make our meals, and the wood fireplace allowed for a fun s'more making experience. Our vacation was during the winter, the area was great for sledding, snowshoeing and hiking. There was even an extra sled at the house for us to use. The town of Galena is always good for a day of shopping.Our trip is never complete without going to see the Bald eagles along the Mississippi in Dubuque or buying bread from the sisters in Sinsawana. We had access to the territory owner's club where we were able to work out and take the little ones swimming. In addition, the house was equipped with multiple games,cards books,movies and puzzles. There was no excuse to be bored The surrounding area is beautiful. Hard to believe we were still in Illinois. We are looking forward to our next visit in the warmer months so we can make use of the large screen porch and the outdoor fire pit.

We stayed for 2 nights at Ted & Jens house in Galena. It was an excellent spot for 3 couples to share - we enjoyed the surroundings - watching a couple deer in the back yard in the morning and the house is well equiped with everything you would need! Galena is a great town to walk around in, many nice shops and good eats! I would definately recommend this house for anyone wanting a getaway! Wayne & Teri, Steve & Kris, Bob & Sue

Great time with four couples!
Great time with four couples!
We go on a mystery every year with four couples and this year it was our turn, we had a great time in Galena and even better time at the house. All was good, plenty of room with four bed rooms and with three baths. The Kitchen had all the things we needed for us to cook and the screened in porch was perfect for our grill night and cards and games.Pool was so relaxing and clean. The grill worked very well and the steaks were the best!! Thanks for a great place to stay and we will be back, Al&Kerrie

About the owner: My husband and I are self employed and we wanted a place for our adult children to come to that was centrally located. We also wanted a special place for our grandchildren to be able to come to with lots of great activities that they would enjoy as they grow. We usually are there each month for 4-5 days and have enjoyed exploring the area in each season.
Why the Owner Chose Galena:
We chose Galena, IL because it was and easy 5 hr drive for us from Stillwater,MN and it is only a 3 hr drive from downtown Chicago and O'Hare airport which makes it convenient for those who fly in.Our granddaughter has really enjoyed the times that we share at the 'Galena house' and I'm sure we will create a lot of great memories there in the future. This area is known as the Galena Territory, a 6800 acre area that is home to the 225-acre Lake Galena and Marina, Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa, with 4 championship golf courses, Shenandoah Riding Center and many hiking and biking trails. Downtown historic Galena is just 6 miles from our home with lots of many quaint shops, restaurants,art galleries,and wineries. Galena is home to Ulysses S. Grant and has a lot of great historical buildings and tours. In winter there is sledding, cross country skiing, and downhill skiing at nearby Chestnut Mountain Ski area.
