                        We couldn't have been more pleased with the amenities and the beauty of this Coyote Cove home. We enjoyed a wonderful weekend with the ladies just relaxing, and enjoying the beautiful scenery. David was more than helpful in assisting us with our stay, as well as giving us many helpful recommendations on where to go and what to do in the town. We were greeted by Trishia who was very friendly and gave us a wonderful tour of the home. We could not have been happier with the entire experience.

                        Fantastic! The house is welcoming, warm and inviting. It seems as if it opens it's arms and welcomes you in. I feel as if I heard a voice saying relax and enjoy when I walked in. A party of 6 individuals stayed and we all loved it. More than enough room for group and alone time. Views are stunning. Close to Galena. Easy to find. Our group has stayed in several homes in the Territories, but this is the one we will return to.

                        Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing.

                        Owner response: After renting many houses in Galena for several years, we took all we had gained from that experience and applied it to the selection of our site, layout and design details for Coyote Cove. Rebecca then carefully chose all the furniture, furnishings and decor to create a welcoming, inviting and relaxing theme that radiates throughout our home. It is wonderful to read how much our guests enjoy all this work.

                        Our family group of 12 enjoyed every minute of our early January long weekend. Even tho the temperatures were frigid, most of the adults took a dip in the hot tub and a couple even went ski-ing nearby. The kids loved learning pool and playing together in the game room. The open floor plan was ideal for us. The dining room table was perfect for our meals (prepared in the very well-furnished kitchen)as well as for board games. Everyone appreciated the comfy beds, beautiful views, great fireplace and the amenity cards for the Owners Clubhouse pool, etc. The owners were so helpful about good places to shop, etc. Perfect place for connecting with each other and with nature. We will all come back soon!

                        Owner response: Thank you for being our guests and for being so complimentary. You made yourself at home, enjoying Coyote Cove's comforts and charms exactly as we do. Please do come again!

                        We rented a different vacation home in 2012. We were disappointed after we arrived. The home looked the same as the pictures, but the house was not very clean, the kitchen did not have enough dishes, pots, pans or utensils. The appliances were very dated. The carpets in the lower level had not been vacuumed recently. Last year, we rented Coyote Cove. Needless to say what a difference! We were greeted by a great couple, who showed us around the home, answered any questions we had, and gave us their phone number for any future questions. The home was spotless, very well supplied with everything we needed from linens, towels, to kitchen accessories. The setting is very private. We were in the hot tub quite late a few nights, but with the privacy we did not bother anyone or felt like we were being watched. There is a great deck on the main level that has plenty of seating and a bbq grill where we watched the stars at night. Needless to say, we are going back this year. David is very easy to work with and couldn't be more accommodating. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoyed ours.

                        Owner response: Thank you for your kind words and sharing with everyone your thorough evaluation of Coyote Cove. We welcome your return this year. While our staff and we do everything we can to make the house as nice as possible, it is Mother Nature we can thank for the wonderful privacy and beauty of our setting. We share the same enjoyment of that lovely setting as you do, and know all our guests will find it just as satisfying as we both do.

                        Our family has spent the last 15 yrs enjoying Christmas at a house in the Galena area. In 2013 we outgrew the lovely home where we had spent the last several years so our search was on to find another "Christmas home"! We found it and more at Coyote Cove! I would never admit to a little ADHD when it comes to cleanliness but I'm sure my children would say I have it....even if I had to find a complaint I could not! It was perfect for my family!! And the kitchen is stocked like a gourmet chef's delight:) We fixed crab legs, fresh salmon, turkey dinner, every meal we prepared at "home" and lacked for not one utensil or pan! From check-in to departure it was the Best Christmas gift I could have received, all my family AND an awesome home to celebrate with them. We have found our new Christmas home and hope to return for many, many years to come!

                        Owner response: Thank you very much. We are thrilled you were able to enjoy such an important holiday in our home. You discovered the kitchen joys that Rebecca worked so hard to provide for our guests when we designed and equipped our home. We continually refresh the kitchenware and other household items whenever we or our guests discover any new needs, and it is joyous for us to hear such praise for these efforts.

                        Coyote Cove is an excellent selection for a quiet and private getaway with friends or family. The home is very well maintained and the kitchen is extremely well equipped to handle any meal you would like to prepare. The photos do a great job of displaying the appearance, comfort and amenities of the home and the owner is very easy to work with. 2013 was the 4th year in a row for our annual college re-union get together at Coyote Cove and the stay was as enjoyable as ever!!

                        Owner response: Thank you very much. Coyote Cove loves to welcome guests back, over and over again. You already know what some other vacationers have yet to discover -- that Coyote Cove is a very special way to enjoy a fun and very relaxing stay in Galena.

                        Every other year, my family and I come together to celebrate Thanksgiving in the Galena Territories. We always struggle to find a place that will meet our family needs, and offer a warm and relaxing atmosphere. Coyote Cove was everything David promised and more! The kitchen is a cook's dream! It had everything we needed to make a perfect turkey dinner, and several meals throughout the weekend. The house has a fantastic lay-out; an ideal open-concept for keeping a group feel cohesive, but also allowing for separate alone time with the downstairs and perfectly appointed bedrooms. Our family has been doing this for several years, and this is the first year we left with a resound consensus about booking this same house for future Thanksgivings. We will definitely be back - David and the team at Coyote Cove are fantastic, with a beautiful house to help you make memories of your own.

                        Owner response: Thank you for your compliments, and Rebecca is thrilled you enjoyed her kitchen for so many great meals. Thanks especially for acknowledging the great work of all the dedicated people on our Coyote Team who make such wonderful stays possible for our guests. We look forward to welcoming you again. Repeat guests are the greatest compliments we receive.

                        Coyote Cove is a fabulous home for the weekend or longer, for small or large family get-togethers, for friends gathering, or even a couple's private getaway. It is such a clean, well appointed home, stocked with everything one could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. We loved the home's scenic views, cozy fireplace, hot tub under the stars, and spacious kitchen and dining. We loved hiking the hills and paths and exploring the many nearby attractions in Galena....shopping, restaurants and historical sites. We are already anxious to return!

                        Owner response: Thank you for your very nice -- and we think, very accurate -- evaluation of Coyote Cove. Like so many other guests, you discovered the many treats that make a stay at Coyote Cove so enjoyable. And you highlight what some may overlook -- what a wonderful place it also is for a couple to escape and enjoy a luxurious getaway alone!

                        After an extensive internet search and contacting numerous rental properties for our annual family reunion in Galena, we were fortunate to find Coyote Cove. It had all the features we were looking for: 6 bedrooms, each with a private bath, a giant, fully outfitted kitchen to prepare meals for our large group, spacious dining area, (we sit around the table for hours after the meal to chat) and large deck with dining table, gas grill, and view of Lake Galena over the tree tops. The house was clean and well appointed with upgraded amenities including bedroom furniture, linens and towels, kitchen utensils, silverware, dishes, and wine glasses. David, the owner, responded promptly and professionally to all inquiries and made the rental process simple and easy. He owns and manages this property himself with a “hands on” approach. We’ve rented many houses over the years and this one stands out as one of our favorites. We will definitely visit Coyote Cove again, and highly recommend you do the same.

                        Owner response: Happy and enthusiastic customers make all our work worthwhile. I especially enjoyed the reviewer's comment about sitting around the table after meals, talking with those we love, and enjoying the spectacular beauty that surrounds our home. It's one of our own favorite things to do with our family and friends -- and very nice to know our guests enjoy the house the same way.

                        Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us this past weekend in celebration of our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Comments made by family members were that it was by far the nicest vacation home they had ever been in. This house was clean, well supplied with anything you could possibly need and the view was outstanding. The owners went out of their way to make sure that we were made to feel welcome when we came. I would highly recommend this property to anyone that is interested in staying in the Galena Territory. The family had fun at the pool and going into Galena to explore all the shopping.

                        Owner response: Any wedding anniversary is special -- but your 50th is super special. It's wonderful to know that once again Coyote Cove helped our guests make special moments even better. And when experienced travelers say it's the best vacation rental home they have stayed in, I can do nothing but smile. I agree, but it's only the opinions of our guests that validate that statement.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Rebecca and David built Coyote Cove as their vacation dream home in 2008 to share with their family and friends. A native of northern Illinois, Rebecca chose the exterior colors to echo the lovely natural hues of abundant summer cornfields, and even the charming lady bugs she played with as a child. Galena Territory's hills, valleys and natural beauty captivate David, who grew up deep in the Ozarks. His labor of love was to select an especially scenic site, and situate the home and all its windows to capture compelling views of the surrounding natural beauty, while offering guests perfect privacy.

                      Why the Owner Chose Galena:
                      From the beginning of their Coyote Cove project, Rebecca and David knew they would offer this home for rental to guests, whom they wanted to enjoy its relaxing amenities and beautiful setting. Special attention was given to every detail of design, furniture and furnishings to attend to every need and interest of guests. The immense harvest dining table, comfortable bedding, plush towels, large rooms, spacious seating, abundantly equipped kitchen, endearing artwork, charming furniture, expansive decks, breezy screened porch and open air, open sky hot tub all reflect this passionate attention to detail.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Unlike so many other vacation rental homes that cram too many bedrooms into too little space, on small lots with little privacy and minimal views, Coyote Cove offers guests spacious comfort, privacy and beauty for all their pursuits all day long. Large gathering rooms on each of three levels allow guests to be together or apart as they need or desire and to pursue a wide range of activities and pleasures. Three outdoor decks, and a separate screened porch, expand these gathering choices. The large yard allows for more vigorous activities, and even the spacious, paved driveway affords ample parking. This eases loading and unloading of your golf bags, fishing rods, skis or luggage -- as well as all the bags of whatever you may buy when you shop historic Galena's Main Street shops.
