Car: Necessary

Nestled within 6800 acres of the Galena Territory our cottage provides the perfect backdrop from which to enjoy 19th century history and architecture, great local wineries and restaurants, arts and crafts and many eclectic shops found in Galena and the surrounding towns of Elizabeth, Hanover and Stockton.Within the territory you might enjoy Illinois' largest golf course, the Eagle Ridge Spa, the marina from which you could rent pontoons, the Shenandoah riding stables, outdoor and indoor swimming, a fitness center, and a game room featuring pool tables, ping pong, foosball, etc. Miles of trails for hikers and cyclists, and wonderful opportunities for birdwatching.

The town of Galena is home to art galleries, spas, wineries, irish music and the home of President Ulysses S Grant. More trails to bicycle or-perhaps canoeing or kayaking the Mississippi backwaters is more to your fancy. Come winter there are the skiing/snowboarding opportunities at Chestnut mountain or snowshoeing at the Galena Cellar Vineyard.

Downtown Dubuque is 40 minutes away--here one might enjoy various concerts and musical/cultural arts events, casinos, Mississippi riverboat rides, and the world's steepest trolley.

For lovers of nature-rolling hills close to the might Mississippi; for lovers of wine-the many award winning wineries; lovers of outdoor sports; lovers of history; or just lovers...you are welcome.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Originally from Chicago and the western suburbs we fell in love with the Galena area years ago as we drove through the area en route to Dubuque, Iowa. Eventually we bought this cottage that we have so much enjoyed and now would like to offer you the chance to fall in love with Galena and the beauty of JoDavies County

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A special little cottage-somewhat quaint, nestled within the settlement...trees, a seasonal view of Lake Galena, beautiful starry nights and the lull of Galena falls...hiking trails just down the road. A quiet retreat, tho minutes away from tourist hustle and bustle of historic Galena if desired.
