Galena house description

Charming and cozy, Trail’s End is uniquely positioned in one of the most beautiful corners of the Galena Territory. It is a perfect spot to quietly reflect or celebrate any and every occasion with family or friends. Enjoy a wooded view off the back deck while delighting in a glass of wine. Wildlife abounds! From every vantage point you can often see deer strolling through or wild turkey stopping by for a snack. Colorful birds of many types are impossible to miss in the trees and as they dine from the feeder!

Our comfortable home features 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths each located on a separate floor perfect for evening privacy. The main floor offers a bedroom (with queen bed) and bath, comfortable gathering area (with a queen size convertible bed) with an inviting stone fireplace, sunroom, and kitchen and dining area. The large outdoor deck is the perfect place to begin to unwind and start your visit. The upper level features a private bedroom (with a queen bed) and bath suite. The lower level hosts the third bedroom (with a king bed) and bath along with a regulation pool table, satellite TV, stereo, and entrance to the screened-in porch and hot tub. What better way to soothe yourself after a long day of activities or sightseeing?!

If it is sports you are looking for you don’t have to go very far! The Galena Territory offers the best golf in the state if Illinois! Rather be fishing? No problem, Lake Galena is only a short drive through the spectacular scenery of the Territory. You can rent a boat and be reeling them in within minutes! If you prefer hiking, horseback riding, swimming, tennis, volleyball, basketball, hot air ballooning, star gazing, or any number of other exciting activities you won’t have to go very far!

The historic town of Galena offers even more golf, downhill skiing and snowboarding, luge rides, historical tours and moped tours, wining and dining, antiquing and boutiquing, spa experiences, sightseeing trolley rides, museums, and the list goes on…

Cross the mighty Mississippi into nearby Dubuque Iowa and even more experiences await! Try your luck at riverboat casino gambling, do some intense cave exploring, meander through beautiful art galleries, check out the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, and enjoy restaurants of all ethnicities. If you still have energy to burn, take a drive into bordering Wisconsin and visit small town after small town for unique finds and a lot of friendly people.

Whether you are exploring on or off the beaten path… depending on your level of curiosity and adventurousness, Galena and its surrounding areas truly does offer something fun for everyone. Beautiful in all seasons... make a return trip and you will agree!

                    We just returned from a wonderful weekend away at the Trail's End with friends. The house was welcoming, comfortable, private and close to perfection. It was clean and plenty spacious for our group of 4. The owners were warm and responsive. We loved enjoying the hot tub in the cold winter air as well as the variety of birds that frequented the bird feeders outside the window. We had a great weekend and would return again. The only caution we would want to extend is that if your group requires use of the pull-out couch in the living room for sleeping, it was very uncomfortable to sleep on. We resolved it the second night by have two people share the king bed on the lower level. Thanks much for sharing your wonderful place with us!

                    Owner response: We are so happy you and your friends found our home enjoyable. I will look at the sofa bed to see if there is anything we can do to make it more comfortable. It is pretty new and hasn't had much use but perhaps there is a more cushiony mattress available that would be pleasing to sleep on. Thank you for staying with us and sharing helpful comments!

                    We so enjoyed this house...nothing was missing, and it was very, very clean. The decorating is a fun mix of outdoors/antiques/art. Everywhere you looked you saw something new. There is so much to see and do in Galena (about 8 miles) or just kick back at the pool or play golf. Working with the owner was a breeze - friendly and thorough. We'll be back...wish it could be this fall...when the area turns color, it's probably one of the most beautiful sites in the country.

                    What an awesome home! We had 3 couples who totally enjoyed our stay in Trails End! The layout of the house is well planned for privacy. The views were awesome. We shopped at the Country Fair as well as downtown Galena and it was so nice to come home to the hot tub & fireplace. What a relaxing place! The whole house is equipped for everything you might need & then some! We enjoyed the Daffy Duck slippers & candles by the hot tub! We even added to the cork collection! Thanks for sharing such an AWESOME home! We will be back!

                    After a long search, we chose this magical home for the location to host our Girls' Weekend for 8 and we are already talking about when we can go back. From the outside the home looks small, but so welcoming with beautiful flowers and a wooden facade that gave it a rustic charm. Then you step in and realize that this home is beautifully designed with the same charm on the outside, but completely updated. Plus, you finally realize how spacious the home is and how it is perfectly layed out for a group of women to drink, dance, drink, sing, drink, wrestle (yes, wrestle) and play some beer pong (shout out to the champs Angela and Michelle!). Then you get to retire to the comfy beds and sleep it off so you can do it all again the next day! The upstairs deck is perfect in the mornings for some coffee with a breathtaking view of trees and wildlife, and at night for an alcoholic beverage and the panoramic stars. The downstairs deck is screened in with a hot tub that anyone would enjoy, and we did! The only suggestion that I have would be to provide wi-fi since cell phone coverage is spotty at best. There is a home phone and the owners do a great job of providing you with materials on local activities, attractions, restaurants and shops. Still, the internet would be a welcome addition.a Honestly, though, we can't wait to go back!! Thanks you Ginger and Gary for opening your home to us. We'll see you next year.

                    I have made several return visits to this fabulous house. It has served as a "girls getaway" as well as a family gathering place for me. It's charm and warmth are always welcoming. Bird watching from the sun room, a warm fire, and a hot tub that calls your name after a day of shopping make it the perfect place to enjoy all that Galena has to offer. Last visit discovered the winery and enjoyed the wine tasting on the wrap around porch as well as the wine tasting that then occurred on this home's lovely deck. Highly recommend this location.

                    My sister and I, along with husbands, thought this would be the perfect place based on its description. My sister and I went into town and shopped (shopper's heaven) while my husband and brother-in-law golfed (beautiful courses). We cooked in and ate at the fine restaurants in town. I recommend Fried Green Tomatoes, delish. Did a return visit with my "spa" buddies. 4 girls. The Eagle Ridge Spa right on the territory was devine. It was nice to return back to a comfortable spacious home with a serene view. My husband and I will be returning with another couple to do the shopping/golfing again. This home was a true getaway that had everything we possibly could need!

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We are hospitality fanatics that enjoy traveling more than staying home! Since we can’t get away as much as we would like, a vacation property near home just seemed like the right solution. It is the perfect place for us to spend our energy or just enjoy nature. Normally we love being on the go but when we are in Galena all we really need is a nice glass of wine and good company to make our stay perfect.

                  Why the Owner Chose Galena:
                  We searched to find a peaceful location away from our every day hectic routine... a place where we could relax and at the same time entertain and enjoy family and friends. The Galena area is the prettiest in the state of Illinois! We are only a couple of hours from home yet feel like we are worlds away. We love the carefree feeling we have as soon as we arrive. A weekend is never long enough!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Trail’s End is situated in one of the most beautiful areas of the Galena Territory. Not completely secluded though very private, the back of the property is completely wooded and across the road is wooded green space. This environment provides the vegetation that all local wildlife seek. It is a regular occurrence to see deer strolling through the side of our property in the morning and evening. Colorful birds are at the feeders continuously and wild turkey often stop by for a snack!
