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 The Galena Territory

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.

Great house for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It was nicely hidden in the trees which gave us a lot of privacy. We enjoyed the hot tub and the other amenities; the owners club was a great bonus! Also special thanks to the gentleman who came by and helped us get the grill going! Overall we had a marvelous experience.

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.'
