Groceries: The drive to Galena coming from the east is a very pleasant drive. You travel in a US Rt 20 which is a two lane highway. You travel thru many small towns such as Lena, Elizabeth, Stockton. There is a grocery store in the town of Stockton by the name of 'Sullivans Foods', this is a great place to stop and stock up on reasonably priced groceries as you are arriving. In the territories there is a general store for necessities, there is also a wonderful deli and bakery and meat counter here. They do also rent more current videos here for a 24 hour time period. You can also stay on Rt 20 past the turn to get downtown galena and there is a Piggly Wiggly and a Walmart super store. Gas at the Walmart is usually cheaper.
Short cut to town: When driving out of Green View Lane you want to take a left on to eagle ridge dr. and then your very next left on to thunder bay from here you will drive about 2 miles you will see the trash facilty on the left side just before that there is a farm road that will take you out to Rt 20 again. This will cut down your drive to town at least 15 minutes or more.
House essentials: When you arrive at the house you will need to turn on the water which is located inn the laundry room on the lowest level. Behind the door you will see a faucet, you need to open that valve when you arrive and close that valve when you leave. The thermostat has been programed for the heat and the cooling.

Golf: There are four separate golf courses in the Galena Territories. There is the north course the south course and a short 9 holes course and also what is called the 'General' a more difficult course. I am not a member of these courses, but you can easily set up tee times in the golf season.

There is ski rental there in the winter and in the summer they have an alpine slide that is great fun for the whole family.

Year Purchased: 2002
About: 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.
Why The Galena Territory, Guilford Township, IL, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
