Galena Territory 1 Bedroom House. Resort Core. Small Dogs OK. Booking Summer

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

1 Bed/1 Bath in the resort core area of the Galena Territory. Walking trails nearby will take you to the Eagle Ridge Inn. Why rent a 1 bedroom hotel room, when you can rent a house? No common walls, nobody walking loudly in the room upstairs, nobody running through the hallways at all hours of the night.

We've opened up our home to people with small dogs (under 30 pounds please) because we have a dog who we travel with and find quality rentals hard to find sometimes because we want our dog in the rental with us, not a kennel.

Private, light home, located in the Settlement area of the Territory. Four award winning golf courses, including the General nearby. Eagle Ridge Inn is about 5 minutes away. The city of Galena with it's antique shops and restaurants is about 10 minutes away. Chestnut Mountain Ski Resort is about 20 minutes away. You will also have access to the Owner's club with its workout facilities and new pool complex opened in May 2012.

The house has 1 bedroom upstairs and a den downstairs with a new Lazy Boy pullout sofa-bed. Because the house is listed as a 1 bedroom, JoDaviess county maximum occupancy is 4 people. The house is great for a couple or a family, complete with a full kitchen with newer stainless steel appliances. The house is turnkey with all linens, cooking utensils, etc. provided. There is a full washer/dryer in the house. The back deck contains a table and chairs as well as a new gas grill. The house has newly installed in May 2012, flat-screen HDTVs in the living room and the upstairs bedroom, and a stereo downstairs. There are DVD players in the living room and upstairs bedroom also. There are numerous DVD's, puzzles, books and games in the home for your enjoyment.

About The Owner

We live in the suburbs of Chicago and enjoy snow skiing, biking, hiking, and traveling with our Lhasa Apso, Maddie

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Galena

We bought in the Galena Territory because we had been coming out there for years and renting homes. We like the peacefulness and quiet of the home, as well as its close proximity to the city of Galena and skiing at nearby Chestnut Mountain. We also like the proximity to Chicago, with it being only about 2 hours from our home.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy doing whatever we want in the Territory. Whether we feel like relaxing, shopping, fishing, hiking, skiing, it's all nearby or at our doorstep.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a WONDERFUL Memorial Day Weekend...The weather was PERFECT! Your house is ADORABLE! The Owner's Club pool was GREAT!

We couldn't have asked for a better time. It will be remembered for years to come!

Lovely and charming place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at your place. It was truly a time portal that we entered into another land to escape for a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. We loved staying at your place and will definitely return again.

Great little house!

  • 5 of 5

Overall I was very impressed with this home as well as the owner. Robert was very accessible and accommodating. Very clean home! Everything was well organized on the Welcome letter which was very helpful. Love that pets are allowed. It was a great location to hiking trail and access to garbage, etc as well as to downtown Galena. Would definitely re-book this home in the future.

Met our needs

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the quaint property with our two small senior dogs. The owner was easy to work with. We were slightly disappointed about a few items. There was no furniture on the deck to use. The prior guest didn't bring in any firewood so we had to dig out some dry pieces (it was raining the day we arrived) to use. We thought we were opening the flue only to learn we closed it, thus setting off the smoke detector briefly while having to reach back in with the fire burning to open it. The prior guest didn't close the flue after use. Also, it was clear someone didn't clean up after their pet outside and there was what appeared to be urine stain in the master bedroom at the base of the heater that no one attempted to clean. I was hopeful for more of a view, but since we didn't have deck furniture I guess it was a moot point. The external photos are taken at an angle. The wooded area is to the right of the unit; when looking out the back windows you actually see the decks of two other units. The space was tidy with the exception of some dried crumbs on the kitchen counter and several long black strands of hair in the bathroom on the counter and someone left the kitchen lights on. We enjoyed nature, including the wild turkeys each morning. A great selection of games and movies are available, and we donated a dice game of our own to the collection. Close to downtown Galena and a nice hiking path. We've been staying at the Territory for many years and this was a nice property that met our needs. One caveat, given my husband is 6'3 he struggled with the dormers upstairs and in general we found the overall footprint a bit smaller for our liking.

Owner's Response: Sorry that you had those issues at our home. Many of the things you mentioned were more the fault of an inconsiderate previous guest. That being said, I'm glad you brought them up because I can address some of them with our cleaning service. As far as the stain in the bedroom, it's not a urine stain. It is near one of the heating units in the bedroom, and we don't know if it was done when the unit was serviced. It's been there the 7 years that we've owned the house. We really aren't sure what it is. We've had our dog at the house numerous times and she never even smelled the area, like a dog normally would if it was another dog's urine. I wish you would have called or emailed me asking about the outdoor furniture. It's in a shed attached to the house, but isn't normally put out until mid-May because of the unpredictable weather of Illinois. Again, sorry that your stay wasn't as positive as both you and I had hoped.

Cozy Dog Friendly get away 10 min into Galena !

  • 5 of 5

my husband and I & our 3 small dogs enjoyed our stay at this cozy cottage. It's challenging to find places to stay when traveling with our furry family. The house was well kept and clean and the location is a quick 10 min scenic drive into Galena. we also enjoyed the walking path near to the cottage. Will be back! Thank you !

Great Place, Great Price!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our long weekend in Galena. Cozy surroundings and they have all the right amenities, including a TV in the bedroom - a rare find! And the owners are very nice to work with, too!

Close to Galena and about 30 minutes from DuBuque. Sitting out on the deck you can hear the stream rushing behind the property and each morning wild turkeys walked by. We'll be back - maybe with our little dog next time.
