                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  While staying at our rental property you can enjoy all the Territory has to offer. You will receive amenity tags that give you access to the Territory Owners Club which has a large outdoor pool with lots of tables and umbrellas to enjoy a picnic near the pool or food from the concession stand. You will also have access to the indoor basketball court, fitness center, game room complete with pool tables, table tennis, foosball, and board games. Also outside you find a tennis court and play area for the little ones. You will also be given a discount at the Marina where you can rent canoes, pontoon or fishing boats.
