About Celeste Hammond

This is our Family Home- comfortable and restful. Our base for lots of fun.

indoor swimming and Fitness Center a mile away. Game room with ping pong and basketball court. We love the quiet with activities

Celeste Hammond purchased this house in 2004

Why Celeste Hammond chose The Galena Territory

Our house is part of the rolling hills of the Tri State area of NW Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin. It is beautiful. Some folks never leave the house! They enjoy the views down the valley and the quiet.

Antiques in Galena; country fairs plus night life and movies in Dubuque

What makes this house unique

Two of the bedrooms have one queen size bed; the other two bedrooms have two twins that can be put together for a king. Additional sleeping on couches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed here previouslly and were very satisfied with the quietude and location - close to Galena yet the feeling of country. The new kitchen only makes it more enjoyable. This is great for those liking casual living.

Great long weekend for 6 sisters/cousins

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for 6 sisters/cousins. Everything ready for us. The kitchen was great so we could talk & prepare & clean up & keep talking. Plenty of rooms for folks with different sleep habits. We enjoyed the fitness center at the clubhouse. We saw deer & turkeys in the "backyard". The owner was very quick to answer any questions. We had a great time!

Rental 100705

  • 5 of 5

The house was roomy and well maintained with a huge deck overlooking the valley. Lots of comfy

beds and full kitchen plus a new outdoor gas grill. We had steak dinner cooked on the grill

which we ate outdoors on the deck. Lovely.

We would definitely recommend this rental and plan to use it again ourselves soon,

Tranquil setting for a long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely two-story house with 4-bedrooms. The large deck is great to sit out and enjoy a meal, morning coffee, etc. A breathtaking view. Enough space for a large group to spread out and not feel crowded. Great open layout for socializing.

Friends weekend

  • 5 of 5

I have actually rented out this place a few times. I have come up with groups of friends. It so lovely to wake up and see the sunrise over the rolling hills and the sunset in the evening. The house is so comfortable and warm. There is plenty of acreage out back to take a morning stroll. Or cross country ski if there snow. It's also not too far of a drive to Chestnut mountain if you're looking to do a little down hill skiing as well. If you have a bike the territory is fun to ride in the rolling hills. Downtown is just a scenic drive away. I highly recommend this property with it's fireplace,full kitchen and beautiful deck to enjoy time relaxing outside. I love the territory as there aren't many lights on at night so you can view the amazing starscape. Coming from Chicago, this is something I look forward to most! This house has everything you need and the owners are great to work with!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have chosen a nicer place to renew old friendships and make new ones. The colors were at their peak, and there couldn’t have been a nicer place to gather than outside on the deck. We never felt the chill as we spent time talking and looking out over the scenery or up at the brilliant stars in the sky. Simply beautiful…. This is definitely a weekend I’d love to do again. Thank you for all you did to extend yourself and make our weekend memorable.
