Galena house description

Our secluded home sits high above it all on Cogan Drive in Galena Territory. It is surrounded by forest on three sides and has two decks, overlooking 10-15 miles of trees, farmland and pastures. It is located very close to the Owners Club pool and recreation facility and very close to the Marina. At the Marina one can rent row boats and pontoons for relaxation or fishing. Right outside our home and running through the entire territory are miles and miles of trails that are perfect for hiking and cross-country skiing. We are 2 minutes from the championship golf courses located at the resort. We are 10-15 minutes from the downhill skiing at Chestnut Mountain. We are 10 minutes from the quaint restaurants and shopping of downtown Galena. Also, located in the area are wineries and Kayaking facilities.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: My husband and I are both educators and many years ago we decided to buy our rental home as a place to vacation with our family during our summers off, and a place to share with other people. We love our home because it allows us peace and relaxation that we do not always find in the Chicagoland area. We love the quiet and privacy of our house. We have three daughters with whom we have shared many wonderful times in Galena. We believe that it is the perfect getaway!

              Why the Owner Chose Galena:
              We chose to buy our home in Galena because of it's proximity to the Chicagoland area and because of all of the wonderful amenities the area provides. Every season is special in Galena! From swimming and hiking in the summer, to watching the changing of the leaves and the cool golf in the fall, to downhill and cross country skiing in the winter, and watching the new foliage appear in the spring.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We enjoy relaxing on either the top or bottom deck of the home and taking in the awesome view provided. In the winter we love sitting in the outdoor hot tub then warming up by the fire. All seasons allow us to sit in our living room and watch nature right outside the window. We have spotted many types of birds, wild turkey and deer. In the summer the kids walk to the pool or hike the trails nearby.
