Property 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!

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!
