Imagine that you have returned from a full day of golf, tennis, boating, gambling, shopping, skiing or any of the activities that historic Galena has to offer. It's time to sink into the spa on the Horizon House screened porch and enjoy a spectacular view of the unspoiled nature preserve that surrounds you. Watch the colors change as the sun moves over the horizon.
Although the area features some of the most spectacular golf in the country, this is not just a Summer house. In Fall, the changing colors are an attraction in themselves, while in Winter, the Chestnut Mountain Ski Resort is only minutes away and...

Keywords: Vacation Rental Home
After visiting the Galena area for many years, we decided to purchase our own home there. We have not regretted our decision as we have hundreds of happy memories of our wonderful house and the good time that have been had there by all. We ourselves have rented many vacation homes all over the world and we have tried to give our house everything we thought was missing from the places we have rented.
Our house is conveniently located in the center of the Galena Territory/Eagle Ridge Resort complex. It is close to all amenities and on a main road, but it is located down a secluded ridge which gives it complete privacy. It is also adjacent to deep woods hiking trails, which we use quite often for morning nature walks. There have been more than a dozen deer in our backyard at one time and bald eagles have perched right outside our windows.
We had a great time this weekend staying here. The accommodations were very nice and we appreciated the passes to the pool. The deck was great to share conversation and stories at the end of the day. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
The kids made a beeline for the lower level game room and we didn't see much of them after that. Nice relaxing weekend in the forest. We will definitely come back
We had a great stay again at the Horizon House celebrating Christmas with children and grandchildren. The house is homey, comfortable and room for us all to enjoy time together. The new hot tub was fabulous.
We were four couples that stayed at Horizon House this past weekend and had a terrific time. The house had more than we could hope for. We cooked dinner on the BBQ and breakfast every morning in the kitchen, which had everything we needed. The hot tub was great for after golf and shopping and the girls even challenged the guys to a Foosball tournament (the guys won). The house is not brand new, but is well maintained and loaded with character. You can tell a whole lot of people have shared good times here and we wee glad we got the opportunity to do so as well. We will be back.
We only found two positives – the hot tub and the layout of the bedrooms. The house is in need of a thorough cleaning and painting. The house was dirty and dusty. If a person has allergies, you would need your inhaler for sure! We left the house cleaner than when we arrived. There were several chairs on the deck that are broken. The games in the basement were all broken in some manner. Some more than others (we did NOT break them). The TVs that they advertise in each bedroom all have to be on the same satellite channel. So if they kids were watching cartoon network that is what everyone had to watch if they were wanted to watch satellite TV! But the most disappointing thing was the access to the facilities at the owners club. This house sleeps 10, we had 9 with 5 being children. We went to the owners club pool and was told we only had access for 6 of us. We were told the owners of the property could purchase more access cards but chose not to. We were never told nor does it say anywhere on this website that only 6 can use the amenities. We had 5 kids, and needed more than one adult to supervise them at the pool. We were in bathing suits with no cash. We could buy one day passes for 5.00 each. That wouldn’t have bothered me as much had I known in advance. We were very embarrassed and disappointed to be turned away at the security desk.
We did call and complain to the phone number but were not given any suggestions are answers. I for one would not want someone in the house cleaning with all of our belongings laying around. That is not the answer. The house needs a good spring cleaning.
We had an wonderful weekend at this house! We had our kids and friends in for a weekend getaway. The adults all played cards and games upstairs while the kids were entertained with all the arcade games in the downstairs area. The house had all the amenities we needed for the weekend and took full advantage of the territory offerings. we have rented before in the Territories and have never found a house this well equipped. The Hot Tub was great!
Access to Owner's Private Club (indoor/outdoor pool)& Eagle Ridge Resort. Four golf courses next door, 100 stores, two casinos and a Dog Track in the vicinity.
