For the Wonderer...venture across the Mighty Mississippi river to Dubuque, Iowa (approx. 15 minute drive) where you can explore the casino, seasonal festivals, a water park, fine restaurants, and all that the historical river town has to offer.

For the History Buff...Step back in time and visit countless historical sites. Pay homage to homes, monuments and tours which are reminiscent of the civil war. Tour General Ulysses S. Grant's home or reconnect with spooky tales of spirits from the past in one of the local Ghost tours! (These are a lot of fun)!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Tom and I have traveled throughout the united states and abroad, we both agree, there is no place like our Galena home! We began coming up to this area approximately (5) years ago and we have always been drawn or ended up in the Territories, as the beauty is truly remarkable. We want to share this beauty and cozy feeling with anyone who is looking for a 'stress free' get away. Tom and I are still currently working and we use Oak Glen 12 as our 'retreat' from the everyday hustle/bustle. Enjoy! Tom & Pat Ellison, Orland park, il.

Why the Owner Chose Galena:
For the past (5) years, Tom and I have been traveling to this area and staying with relatives at nearby lakes. When we came across the 'Galena Territories', we fell in love all over again. Not to mention, Tom is an avid golfer and this is the place for that! I love the scenery and the SPA it's awesome!! We can replenish our minds and just relax. I cannot say enough of the beauty and charm, this is why we had to become owners.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Our unit (OG-12) is very well kept, because we love it up here! You will find warmth, charm and by the way we have great neighbors! Our main goal is to make sure that you enjoy this unit as much as we do. Our children and grandchildren visit and they love the unit along with all of the other amenities...swimming etc., we have a great time and hope you will as well!!!
