          Car: Necessary

          All of our homes are located in The Galena Territory, Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa. 6,800 acres of beautiful rolling hills and valleys. Thousands of years ago Ice Age glaciers traveled from the North and leveled hills and valleys but divided and detoured, sparing Jo Daviess County. Native Americans called this land Manitoomie which means God's County, which describes our little 'town that time forgot.'


          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1995

          About the owner: Bob and I decided to get away from it all and do a day trip to Galena. Before getting to town Bob wanted to see the golf course this brother played in The Galena Territory. We passed the model homes and later visited them. We both fell in love with The Territory that day and we bought our first lot. While building our summer home, Bob fell in love with everything about Galena. He convinced me to move here with our son, Bret, then 7 years old. I gave Bob a year here and guess what? It was the best thing that we have ever done!!!!! It is a step back in time with knowing lots of people even while shopping for groceries. Knowing that your children or grandchildren are safe at all times. Feeling privileged that you live in such a naturally beautiful enviroment. We absolutely love Galena and The Galena Territory. We also use our vacation home rentals as models for clients who wish to build here.

          Why the Owner Chose Galena:
          I have always wished for a water view and I love wooded lots. THE LAKE HOUSE has both, wooded with a seasonal view of the lake! We would have built our own home on this lot but thought our son would accolade better at a larger school since we moved here from Naperville, IL.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Very secluded and private setting. HOT TUB is open to beautiful surroundings, glider swing set in the woods. Master bedroom has whirlpool tub with separate shower. 2 gathering rooms.
