Groceries: The drive to Galena coming from the east is a very pleasant drive. You travel in a US Rt 20 which is a two lane highway. You travel thru many small towns such as Lena, Elizabeth, Stockton. There is a grocery store in the town of Stockton by the name of 'Sullivans Foods', this is a great place to stop and stock up on reasonably priced groceries as you are arriving. In the territories there is a general store for necessities, there is also a wonderful deli and bakery and meat counter here. They do also rent more current videos here for a 24 hour time period. You can also stay on Rt 20 past the turn to get downtown galena and there is a Piggly Wiggly and a Walmart super store. Gas at the Walmart is usually cheaper.

Short cut to town: When driving out of Green View Lane you want to take a left on to eagle ridge dr. and then your very next left on to thunder bay from here you will drive about 2 miles you will see the trash facilty on the left side just before that there is a farm road that will take you out to Rt 20 again. This will cut down your drive to town at least 15 minutes or more.

House essentials: When you arrive at the house you will need to turn on the water which is located inn the laundry room on the lowest level. Behind the door you will see a faucet, you need to open that valve when you arrive and close that valve when you leave. The thermostat has been programed for the heat and the cooling. When you arrive you need to open the cover and push run program and when you leave if you could set it at 55 degrees in the winter and in the summer at 80 degrees. I have a well stocked kitchen for your use, pat and pans, dishes for a service of 8 people, coffee pot, tea kettle,silverware, cutting knives, toaster, a few serving dishes, cutting boards, measuring cups, few spices, salt & pepper, sugar, paper towels, dish towels, dish soap, cleaning supplies. Let me know if there is any questions about any other items. The bathrooms have toiletries, body soap, hand soap. I also have laundry soap if you need to wash a few things in the new front load washer & dryer.

                  Car: Necessary

                  This property is located in the galena territories, a unique golfing community with many family activities! It is about 15 minutes from the town of galena which is an old stage coach town along the Mississippi river. The town is full of little shops and restaurants that is set into the hillside. There is lots of wildlife in the area, many species of birds, wild turkey, & deer. There is an Inn at the territories where there is a spa for your leisure enjoyment, also a gift shop and a main restaurant and a bar restaurant. There are many events throughout the year organized in the area such as a hot air balloon events, civil war days, etc. You can also rent a pontoon boat and enjoy a sail around lake galena. There is also a stable where you and your family can enjoy a trail ride or a rodeo over the 4th of July holiday weekend. There is a new local hospital in Galena.

                  You are about 30 minutes from the border of Dubuque Iowa, there is a gambling boat & other site seeing attractions.

                  Golf: There are four separate golf courses in the Galena Territories. There is the north course the south course and a short 9 holes course and also what is called the 'General' a more difficult course. I am not a member of these courses, but you can easily set up tee times in the golf season.

                  Ski: Our home is about 10 miles away from chestnut mountain that overlooks the Mississippi river. There is ski rental there in the winter and in the summer they have an alpine slide that is great fun for the whole family. In the town of Dubuque on the other side of the Mississippi there is sundown ski resort. They also have rental facilities, for your skiing pleasure.

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About: We purchased the property for our own families use. As our family grew and we weren't able to spend as much time there, we decided to share our home with others. It has been a wonderful experience getting to know others who have come to enjoy the Galena area as much as we have.

                  Why Galena:
                  The nice thing about this property is that it has a wonderful view of the golf course and yet very private. The area provides great outdoor activities all year round. Boating, Fishing, Golfing and Hiking in the spring, summer and fall. Skiing in the winter season and relaxing by a cozy fire.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I believe the most unique benefit to this property is it's location it is centrally located in the Galena Territory Area. It is about 5 min, drive to the Eagle Ridge Inn which is convenient for many of our guest who are attending weddings at the Inn.
