About Sandra Spence
We purchased the property for our own families use. As our family grew and we weren't able to spend as much time there, we decided to share our home with others. It has been a wonderful experience getting to know others who have come to enjoy the Galena area as much as we have. The continued revenue from visitors has enabled us to continually care for the home and made it a wonderful place to enjoy your time away from home anytime of the year.
Sandra Spence purchased this House in 2002
Why Sandra Spence chose Galena Territory
The nice thing about this property is that it has a wonderful view of the golf course and yet very private. The area provides great outdoor activities all year round. Boating, Fishing, Golfing and Hiking in the spring, summer and fall. Skiing in the winter season and relaxing by a cozy fire.
What makes this House unique
I believe the most unique benefit to this property is it's location it is centrally located in the Galena Territory Area. It is about 5 min, drive to the Eagle Ridge Inn which is convenient for many of our guest who are attending weddings at the Inn. There is a back way to town that is about 15 min. drive, also a 5 min. drive to the homeowners club. The homeowners club is where you will find the indoor pool all year around as well as the workout facility. The Indoor pool is open year round at the homeowners club also.

This is the 10th year we have stayed at thos home in Galena. It is a college sorority reunion for seven ladies. The house works great for us, we can make and eat breakfast, talk, reminisce. The bed situation works perfectly for us. The house is very clean.
Thanks Ladies! Always a pleasure to host such a wonderful group of Ladies! Look forward to seeing you next year!
Great location to the main hotel and within the property for golfing. The view of the North Course 3rd Hole is beautiful and serene. Absolutely adorable decor and comfortable layout. Three floors of bedrooms and baths so everyone gets privacy. We arrived earlier than planned and Sandra was very accommodating. Will definitely stay again when we find ourselves back in Galena.
Thank you so much for leaving this positive review of your stay at our home. So glad you looked us up once again and we look forward to having you visit in the future! Thanks again, Sandra and Family

Loved our stay in Galena
I believe this is the seventh year we have stayed at the Galena home of Sandy Spence. It’s a reunion for s ven college friends from Colorado, Mpls., Michigan and Iowa. Plenty of beds for us all and the home works out perfectly. Highly recommend these accommodations.
This group of girls are the best! So happy to have them coming year after year as well as booking the year before. I continue to make sure that our home is well taken care of in order to meet everyone's needs. Thanks lady's for continuing to visit! I look forward to your next years visit! All my best! Sandy
Perfect Weekend Retreat
We had my two sisters, two sister in laws and my mom and me together for a girls weekend and we loved this property. Very spacious and comfortable home and only a five minute drive to the Eagle Ridge Resort where we enjoyed the spa treatments. Downtown shopping area only a 15 minute drive away, so the house location is so convenient. We had everything we needed at the home with bedding and kitchen, so a very homey setting and beautiful view. We have already talked about returning next year! Loved it.
We are so thankful that you guys had such an enjoyable time at our home. It is a great place to just get away and regroup. So happy to host your family and look forward to hearing from you next year. All our best! Sandra and Family
