Hi-Welcome to our home. We're Bill and Sue. Many years ago our friends invited us to take a drive out to Galena with them. We didn’t know then about the rich history Galena boasts of, the beauty of the deep vistas and the tranquility of the woods and abundant wildlife, however these are the wonders that brought us back....year after year. Each visit introduced us to new discoveries in Northwest Illinois and educational interests and experiences for our children.

Why Bill chose Galena Territory
Perfect for Large Groups & Ideal for Family Reunions and Corporate Business Meetings. Galena is close enough yet far enough away from home; 3 hours drive from Chicago making it the perfect get-away place for a weekend trip. It is tucked away in Northwest Illinois and unlike the rest of the state of IL, Galena is hilly and picturesque. Downtown Galena is like stepping back in time with mid 19th century architecture aligning Main Street and beyond. Located 8 miles from town is our home, nestled at the galena Territory. It is peaceful, yet a fun place for a large groups or extended family gathering. It is a solid built home. We love it here and hope you will too.

A Home Worth Renting
I rented this house for a yoga retreat I was hosting. The thing that attracted me to this home the most was the individual bedrooms with 2 beds and private baths. There were 8 of those along with 2 separate king bedrooms. The kitchen space and open floor plan on the first floor was so incredible. We had 16 people in this home and at times didn’t see any of them. The downstairs area is so comfortable with heated floors which was perfect for our yoga practice and a full size bar and seating for our wine time! Bill was so accommodating in helping me to move furniture in the home to allow us the space we needed. He also pulled out an incredible sound system that had Bluetooth to create the ambiance and sounds we desired. Moving along to the outside space!! WOW! Even in the bitter cold the girls found time to relax and enjoy the hot tub both nights. When the got back in the house we had roaring fires on both floors due to the fresh wood and beautiful fireplaces equipped with everything we needed. Speaking of equipped... the kitchen was packed with everything cooking related you could need to prepare your meals and multiple coffee pots to keep everyone happy. I will definitely be back to use this home. Was worth every penny!! Thank you again to Bill and Sue for creating this beautiful home to share!
What a great review! We have over 150 five star reviews and your is at the top of the list. We really appreciate your group and await your next Eagle’s Nest stay.
Thank you Linda!!

The Eagle's Nest was a joy to visit!!
Hello Bill. My guess and I absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Eagle's Nest. It had everything one could think of. The bar was completely stock with every possible utensil, from the glasses, the icemaker and the refrigerator. I can say the same for the kitchen. Each guess room was extremely comfortable and the bathrooms were great. I did get the chance to enjoy the jetted tub. My overall experience was GREAT!!! I do have one suggestion....the pool sticks are warped and needs to be replaced. Thanks, Will from Chicago.
It was such a wonderful experience very clean property, beautiful lay out very receptive owner Bill and Sue always a phone call away for any questions overall experience was awesome we will recommend this place
The house is amazing. Open and inviting layout. The rooms have comfortable beds and personal bathrooms which is very convenient. The bar, hot tub, fire pit, tables & games available all make for a good time. Dish Network had an issue while we were there and the hosts took care of it right away. Very responsive and helpful. Overall a great place with great service and I would highly recommend.
One of my the nicest homes we have ever stayed in! Super clean, beautifully decorated! Loved it!
Wedding Weekend House was a success!
This house was everything and more that we expected and wanted it to be. While it wasn't cheap, it was definitely worth our funds, time, efforts, and organization. With the amount of people we had stay, it was a perfect share to split and everything was absolutely thrilled and super impressed about their individual experience!
We rented this gigantic house for our Bridal Party for our 5 day wedding weekend. 80% of them were all from out of town, and because of that and the lack of space in hotel rooms we wanted to keep everyone centrally located! We bonded like we couldn't have if we had been in just a hotel or resort! The house is HUGE and everyone had enough space to either share or have time to themselves. It was so perfect.
We went on the walking trails, rented boats and kayaks at the lake, took advantage of the jacuzzi and fire pit every night, played games downstairs (the kiddos loved it!) while using the bar at the same time. The bedrooms are spacious, the balcony's were beautiful, the bathrooms are perfect with walk in showers & HUGE tubs, the beds are comfy, and the kitchen(s) are perfect for hosting dinners (we had our rehearsal dinner at the house!) for they had EVERYTHING we needed to host (dishes, bowls, serving trays, serving utensils, glasses, wine glasses, champagne glasses, etc!).
Before leaving, everyone mentioned how they'd love to have a reunion at the house every year for our anniversary! :) A couple of friends of ours - who are getting married next year in Colorado - want to rent a big house just like this so they can provide the same experience we provided for our bridal party too! Everyone LOVED the house, Galena Territory, the amenities, the location, the views, the esthetic, the acoustics (you can party downstairs and have kiddos sound asleep upstairs), and all the in-betweens.
We highly recommend this property! Bill is so pleasant to work with and was quick to address any questions or requests/concerns we had prior to our stay and during.
It truly made our wedding weekend better than we could have hoped. :)
