About Bobbie Johnson, Robert Johnson Rentals LLC. 815-777-9777 - sales@rjrentals.com

Bob and I decided to get away from it all and do a day trip to Galena. Before getting to town Bob wanted to see the golf course his brother played in The Galena Territory.

We passed the model homes and later visited them. We both fell in love with The Territory that day and we bought our first lot. While building our summer home, Bob fell in love with everything about Galena. He convinced me to move here with our son, Bret, then 7 years old. I gave Bob a year here and guess what? It was the best thing that we have ever done!!!!! It is a step back in time, everyone knows each other, you catch up with friends while shopping for groceries at Piggly Wiggly or Walmart. You know your children or grandchildren are safe at all times.

Bob and I feel privileged that we live in such a friendly, naturally beautiful, safe environment. We absolutely love everything about Galena and The Galena Territory. Bob is a general contractor, so we are able to use our vacation home rentals as models for clients who wish to build here. We also have a small subdivision in town.

Bobbie Johnson, Robert Johnson Rentals LLC. 815-777-9777 - sales@rjrentals.com purchased this house in 1995

Why Bobbie Johnson, Robert Johnson Rentals LLC. 815-777-9777 - sales@rjrentals.com chose Galena

I have always wished for a water view and I love wooded lots. THE LAKE HOUSE has both, wooded with a seasonal view of the lake! We would have built our own home on this lot but thought our son would accolade better at a larger school since we moved here from Naperville, IL.

What makes this house unique

Very secluded and private setting. HOT TUB is open to beautiful surroundings, glider swing set in the woods. Master bedroom has whirlpool tub with separate shower. 2 gathering rooms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bob and Bobbie....Just a quick note to tell you what a great time we had here. We really enjoyed staying in your Lake House. It was so beautifully decorated and so clean. The little touches you have here -the little nick-knacks all over, the well-stocked linen closet, and such a beautiful kitchen with everything one could possibly need - made this the perfect stay. Rather than staying in a hotel room, this was truly a home. As a handyman, I can certainly appreciate the superior quality of your building skillls - from the little touches like the angled wall next to the refrigerator, the built-in bathroom vanities, the angled ceilings, all the perfectly fitted moldings and of course, the beautiful back deck. And we got to see wild turkeys! (We think that's what they were.)



We want to express our thanks to you for letting us stay in your home, and hope to come back again next year.

Girls getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our girls getaway stay at the Lake House was just perfect. Your home is so inviting, spacious and very clean. You provide your guests with all the ammentaties and more! I would love to come back in the fall or winter as the property is nestled in the woods, and the area is great for taking a nice walk in the country over looking rolling hills, surrounding farms and simple beauty of nature. We even had a deer family stob by for a quick visit just a few feet away from the house. I look forward to returning someday!

Beautiful Getaway Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented the Lake house for a private getaway weekend and were very pleased we chose this home. The location of the house is secluded, private, and quiet. The home is wonderfully decorated, comfortable, and spacious. We enjoyed every moment at the house and hated leaving. We even got to see a wild turkey walk across the front yard and then back into the woods. Absolutely beautiful. We plan to come back again soon.

The Lake House--Great for Scrapbooking retreat

  • 5 of 5

This has been my 8th time staying at The Lake Home (6th time with the girls for our annual scrapbooking trip). We love coming here every fall! It's like coming back home each time to such a beautiful house, beautiful outdoors and a nice quiet setting. The set up is perfect for scrapbookers with the nice open floor plan to set up extra tables. It is in such a beautiful location and the home has just about everything you need. It is so nice to have a bathroom adjoined to each bedroom. We love the shopping and the great restaurants in the beautiful downtown of Galena. We already have year 7 scheduled for our next scrapbooking retreat. Bobbie and Bob are so accommodating and wonderful people!

Great weekend or week home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great three days at this wonderful home. It is tastefully decorated and has all the amenities you will need to enjoy your stay. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which is very nice. Very large kitchen and two separate gathering areas, one on each level of the house. There is also a deck on each level of the house. The hot

tub on the lower deck looks down the property over looking Lake Galena. Beautiful view. The house is secluded in the woods and is quiet and serene. You can't go wrong with this home. Downtown Galena is only 15 minutes away.

Map

Car: necessary

All of our homes are located in The Galena Territory, Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa. 6,800 acres of beautiful rolling hills and valleys. Thousands of years ago Ice Age glaciers traveled from the North and leveled hills and valleys but divided and detoured, sparing Jo Daviess County. Native Americans called this land Manitoomie which means God's County, which describes our little 'town that time forgot.'
