Our family is spread out among Illinois and Iowa and Galena is always the middle destination. This year we decided to rent a house and hold our family Thanksgiving in Galena. What an excellent choice! This house had everything we needed for our family. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to put together a fantastic meal! Our family will be starting a new tradition in Galena and this house! Thanks again Bill & Sue, the house was wonderful and enjoyable.

41st year friendship reunion
Hi Bill & Sue, Thank you both for sharing your beautiful Retreat House with us for our Annual College Gals Reunion Weekend!!! It was the perfect setting to gather & celebrate our 41 year friendship! We loved the updates you've made (although we thought your home was perfect before!) & all the special touches you added with Fall decorations were appreciated. We stayed with you in April 2012, but all agreed that spending an October weekend in the Galena area was truly magical! The fall colors were spectacular, we enjoyed trail walks, gathering on the screened porch, cozy fires, the Halloween parade in town & our afternoon at the Galena Winery. Also, your kitchen is absolutely the best equipped kitchen we've ever had the pleasure of cooking in! Thanks for sharing your amazing home with us! Kitsi Wayzata, MN

House was exactly as described and photos accurate. It had all the comforts of home and then some. Location was perfect and we had an awesome time. Kitchen is very well stocked and coming from a "foodie", I'd be shocked if there was a utensil or piece of kitchenware that is missing. We would recommend to others and stay here again.

Fall Get Away Weekend
Fall Get Away Weekend
We have been staying at the Galena Territory as a group for at least 12 years and this was the first time we've rented from Galena Area Rentals. It won't be the last. The Hubbards are wonderful people to deal with and they anticipate everything you might need to make your stay as pleasant a possible. The home is beatifully decorated and meticulously maintained. The wooded views make for a very serene getaway experience. Even though it rained for much of the weekend we had a wonderful time and that was mainly because the Retreat House was so great. Looking forward to a stay next year.

This is our third year staying at the Retreat House, and we plan to be back next year! This house is immaculate. The rooms are spacious and look professionally decorated. Bill and Sue go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. We love the three season room, and the hot tub. We grilled steaks, and watched movies, went shopping and took a trip to Dubuque for a little gambling at the casino. A few of the girls headed over to the spa at the Irish Cottage for massages. We look forward to this trip every year, and this house has become our home away from home. I highly recommend this property.

We took our 4 couples golf group up to the Retreat House for a few days of golfing and fun in the Galena area. It was a wonderful "retreat" with a kitchen that was very well equipped and a house that was very comfortable and extremely clean .Although we ate at some great restaurants in Galena, our group also likes to eat in. Therefore, a gas grill is important to us, and this grill was the best we've had in our 20 years of taking these trips. It was not only super clean it was large enough to cook our meat and 12 ears of corn at the same time. The only minor problem we had was that we were not able to get the televisions to work properly, so you may need a lesson from Bill on that!!!! We all enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to this home.

Perfect getaway. The house is immaculate and accommodated 6 guys perfectly. Plenty of room to spread out and not be on top of each other. The grill on the main deck is amazing. We utilized the hot tub on the lower deck several times as well as the fire pit on the lower level. I would highly recommend

About the owner: Hi-Welcome to our home. We're Bill and Sue. Several years ago our friends invited us to take a drive out to Galena with them. We didn’t know then about the rich history Galena boasts of, the beauty of the deep vistas and the tranquility of the woods and abundant wildlife, however these are the wonders that brought us back....year after year. Each visit introduced us to new discoveries in Northwest Illinois and educational interests and experiences for our children.
Why the Owner Chose Galena:
Galena is close enough yet far enough away from home; 3 hours drive from Chicago making it the perfect get-away place for a weekend trip. It is tucked away in Northwest Illinois and unlike the rest of the state of IL, Galena is hilly and picturesque. Downtown Galena is like stepping back in time with mid 19th century architecture aligning Main Street and beyond. Located 8 miles from town is our home, nestled in the Galena Territory. It is peaceful, yet a fun place for a large group or extended family gathering. It is a solid built home. We love it here and hope you will too.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy a game of pool or ping pong, challenge your friends to a game of poker, or relax in the outdoor private hot tub. Take a swim at the outdoor pool located at the owner's club on Territory Drive. Enjoy grilling with our 'never run out of gas' grill or just relax and enjoy the soothing sounds of nature from the three seasons room. Experience the natural surroundings; take a hike down the many trails in the Territory. Golf the 'General' or ski down the slopes of Chestnut Mountain Resort. Year-round activities make Galena the escape weekend destination.
