Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much for following up. We had a great time in Galena and enjoyed our stay at Cogan house. You've made the entire process from beginning to end a very smooth process. Your emails were great in detailing everything - directions, entry and close out. The home was very, very clean as well. We loved the hot tub and the pool table was a big hit. The area is a beautiful place to stay and we enjoyed Cogan house - just wish we would have come a few weeks earlier to enjoy the color! :)

Reviewer Comments:

The house was perfect with the hot tub, pool table, grill and fire pit. So relaxing and quiet we spent less time in town and more time hanging at the house! I would recommend for families or, just an easy get away for "the girls"! Management/owner were a lot of help getting date change and getting us into the house early. Happy with everything. I have a feeling we will be back!! So much better than a hotel!

We had a great time. The house fit 5 adults and 4 kids quite well. The property was well maintained and the house was very clean. The owner's association pool was also very nice.

Reviewer Comments:

This was our 6th year visiting Galena and our 3rd time staying at 306 Cogan. This is probably our favorite house. It's the perfect size, it feels like home, and it's very clean. Working with Linda is always a delight. We've only stayed in a Great Escape house when we go up and we will never stay anywhere else. We've been there during every season and it is always wonderful. You can't beat the views and staying in a house gives you a sense of comfort you can't get from any hotel. The amenities are fantastic. It is impossible not to have a good time.

We had a wonderful time. Family time together is what we were wanting and we had it. We loved the hot tub and pool table. We used games provided at the house and spent time at owners club. Everything was wonderful! Thanks for making our vacation all we were looking for and more. Should we be back in area we will definitely stay here again.

This three bedroom home is located in the heart of the picturesque 6800-acre Galena Territory, a pristine area of abundant wildlife and rolling hills that stands apart from the normally flat landscape of Illinois. Within walking distance from the home is the Territory Owners Club facility, with a newly updated outdoor pool, game room, fitness center, basketball court, tennis courts and children's playground. Just a minute down the road our guests can fish or boat on the 220-acre private Lake Galena. Also just minutes from the home in the Galena Territory lies the Ridge Golf Club and Spa, boasting 63 holes of championship golf and a world class spa facility. The home borders one of the Territory's 40 miles of hiking trails, a great way to conveniently experience the beauty of the Territory up close. Just a short ride down Route 20 lies the historic city of Galena, a great destination for shopping and eating.

NEW in 2012 Indoor and Outdoor Pools located within walking distance of the home. Less than a mile is the Galena Territory Owner's Club that houses these amenities and many more. During the summer there is a snack counter, tennis courts and farmer's markets to be enjoyed. Very close to Lake Galena and the marina, we love to rent a pontoon and cruise the lake by the waterfall.
