You couldn’t find a nicer, cozier place!
The Owl House is our home-Away-from-home when we come to Galena. The owner thinks of and provides for everything you need. The place is immaculately kept and well stocked.
You are right above Main Street, so getting to the restaurants, bars or festivities that are happening at that particular time is just a few minutes away. When we stay in to fine, one of our favorite Italian restaurants, Vinny’s is steps away for fabulous takeout!
Always a great time. Thanks, Joan.
Very clean and cozy home, has everything you need and very close to restaurants and shops.
Cute, Cozy, Comfortable!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Owl House. It is so close to Main St and the shops. It was a perfect mini getaway for my husband and I. The house was setup with everything you could possibly need when doing a blend of eating out and cooking a little for ourselves. It has such charm and we so relaxed and happy when coming home from hanging out in such a beautiful town. We would definitely return!
Excellent property. I can't say enough. Location could not be any better. We parked the truck and did not drive anywhere for 2 days. What a treat! The attention to detail in this house far exceeded our expectations. The decor is phenomenal and really compliments the location. Every need has been anticipated. We have visited Galena for years and this is by far the best place we've stayed! We will be back for sure!
It was perfect! Would stay again and again. Joan thought of everything and the location is ideal!
If Illinois is the Land of Lincoln, then Galena is certainly the City of Grant. As a civil war era town, it's not uncommon to see soldier reenactments or even a man dressed as General Grant strolling down Main Street. We call Main Street the "Helluva Half Mile" because it's packed with antique stores, souvenir shops, tasty treats, fashion, decor, and restaurants. And after dinner, the nightlife will make you glad you can just walk home! We like to think of Galena as our secret spot, but we're happy to see others jump on board too! Forbes Magazine listed Galena as one of America's Prettiest Towns, Conde Nast Traveler listed Galena as the 2nd friendliest city in America, and Fodor's Travel listed it in America's Best Main Streets--just to name a few!
About Joan Raymond
My grandparents owned a farm outside Galena where I spent every Sunday, as well as many weeks in the summer as a child. I have very fond memories of this City. Now, I split my time between Boulder, Colorado (where I raised my family) and Galena. All of my immediate family and a lot of my extended family live in the tri-state area.

Why Joan Raymond chose Galena
I saw the Owl House in the 2015 Annual Tour of Historic Galena Homes and fell in love with it. Such a beautiful example of small urban living which is so historically charming! When I heard it was for sale, I knew this would be the perfect place for visitors to stay and enjoy the best of Galena right at their finger tips!
