Galena Territory 1 Bedroom House. Resort Core. Small Dogs OK. Book Fall/Winter

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 0 - 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 The Galena Territory

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!

My family and I loved the house. It was everything we expected it to be. The weather was unfortunately not great but the house made it feel very cozy and home felt. We might plan to go back when the weather is nicer!

Cozy getaway

  • 4 of 5

Perfect spot for our family of four. We spent President’s Day weekend in this cozy settlement home with our two children. We enjoyed the fireplace while we watched movies and played board games. The mattress was very comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was excellent.

Cozy getawy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very cute, perfect small place for two or maybe guests who don't mind using an upstairs bathroom. Well maintained. Very close to beautiful walking, biking trail.

Lots of cold air in lower level by kitchen during the frigid temps of 0-5 degrees! Maybe having the fireplace burning for hours affected this.

Note the keypad is NOT the lock box for realtors on the front door.

Cute cottage. Quiet and relaxing area. Adequate amenities. The host was responsive.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, a really cute place to stay. Nice area surrounded by trees. Quiet and peaceful. Cozy and relaxing. Only negative was that we found a bunch of dead bugs along the edges of the walls inside the house. It was an easy clean up with the vacuum that was there, though. Otherwise, great experience and I’d stay there again!!!
