Galena cottage description

Looking for a little piece of country? Our ranch home is located in The Galena Territory. Step into quiet life in Galena for the perfect weekend getaway!

Whether you are planning to visit Galena on a romantic retreat for two, for a couples getaway, with girlfriends for a wine tasting weekend, with the guys for a golf weekend, as a reunion with another family, or just bringing the kids out for the weekend, our home will easily accommodate your stay.

Our home sleeps up to 10 people. The four bedrooms (with 5 queen beds total) each have a television, plenty of closet space and are designed with comfort in mind. If people want to spread out, we have two couches that pull out to beds as well. Bedroom linens are provided.

Four full bathrooms are clean and provide plenty of privacy for all guests. Bathroom linens are provided.

Our home is equipped in technology and gadgets. We have dedicated WiFi - log in once and you will be set for the entire stay! We have large flat screen televisions mounted in the main floor and basement living areas. Even more, the main floor TV has Netflix and Pandora access. Sit back, relax and catch up on movies, TV and listen to music. In the basement, the community TV also has an Xbox system installed. Bring your favorite games, play one of ours, or rent them from a nearby RedBox.

For additional entertainment, we have board games, card games, puzzles, air hockey table and dart board. Plenty of fun, no matter your age!

If you prefer to cook during your visit, our kitchen will delight you. With recently upgraded amenities, and a recent appliance update in March 2013, you will love cooking here!

During warmer weather, grill a meal outside and enjoy our deck, screened porch and lower patio. And... as of July 2013, a fire pit!

Don't forget about Galena in the winter months! The hills create the perfect ski slopes and sledding hills. Ice skating is picture perfect. It really is a wonderful winter getaway!

          Car: Necessary

          Galena has something to offer for everyone. Shopping, golfing, hiking, bicycling, fishing, skiing, sledding, leisure boating, horseback riding, and animal watching are popular among visitors. For the photography enthusiast, there is no better canvas to capture. History buffs will love how Galena takes you back in time. Or see a birds-eye view of Galena from a hot air balloon, another favorite tourist activity.

          The hills of Galena are the perfect challenge for bicyclists. Every year, athletes flock to Jo Daviess County for 5Ks, 10ks, half marathons, duathlons and triathlons. The Owner's Club has a state of the art workout room, indoor and outdoor pool and indoor basketball court. Tennis and basketball courts are located throughout the Territory for additional outside sports enjoyment. Ask us for preferred routes for various length runs and cycle rides that would leave from our home - we would be happy to share them with you.

          Galena loves to celebrate! Mardi Gras, Wine Lovers' Weekend, President Grant's Birthday, Girlfriend Getaway, Galena Country Fair, and Nouveau Weekend are all theme weekends. If you like parades, Galena is the place to be! St. Patrick's Day, Independence Day and Halloween are all holidays worthy of this red carpet treatment. And of course Christmas is when Galena truly sparkles and shines. Nothing is more perfect. Which festive weekend will bring you to Galena?

          We all have to eat, and Galena offers some pretty amazing options! While we do enjoy cooking at home, we always enjoy a visit to a local eatery. This quaint, small town has a variety of dining choices.

          Above all, we love sharing everything that Galena has with our kids. History, beauty, fun and most of all, family memories. We hope that you can share what you love most about Galena with someone soon!

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: We live in the Chicago suburbs and have enjoyed visiting Galena for many years. We came for our first anniversary when it was just the two of us, and now we bring our kids. We think Galena is a very special place.

          Why the Owner Chose Galena:
          We have looked property in Galena for years, looking at lots of townhouses and single family homes. It has always been a 'dream' of ours to have our own place in this beautiful community. When we first visited this home, we were able to picture us here. Our kids love having plenty of space to do 'their' thing, we love the layout and ability to cater to group getaways. This home has been in the Eagle Ridge rental program for years. We are embarking on an exciting world of renting it ourselves, and we are excited to share it with you!

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Although our home has been in a rental program for years and has been adequately equipped to rent out, our goal is for our renters to be comfortable here, to be 'wowed'. As new homeowners, we are making changes to 'wow' you. We have upgraded televisions throughout the house, mounting them to walls, connecting them to services like Netflix and Pandora. We like to be connected and have set up a dedicated WiFi service - that works all the time! Our kitchen has been upgraded (with more to come!) and the bed coverings have been improved. We have stayed in enough rental homes to know what makes for a comfortable, memorable stay. We hope that you come stay at our 'Galena Country Cottage' to relax and make some memories!
