About the property

A Beautiful, Huge & Immaculate 4 BR/4.5 Bath Home With Hot Tub and fire pit

This is our #1 rental home, and one look at the pictures will show you why. Enjoy some of the best views in the Territory from the one-of-a-kind 3-story wall of windows featured in this 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath home set back on a hill above the Shenandoah Valley. This home is immaculate, perfectly maintained, and decorated in the contemporary style you want. If you've stayed here before, you'll find that the owners of this home are well on their way to updating the entire home. With 4000 square feet of living space, this is a home that will give you more than enough room for everyone.

When you enter the home, the 2-story great room with its wall of windows will take your breath away. The large gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances will accommodate all the cooks in your group, and there are two dining areas so that everyone can have their own chair. This is only the main level, but it offers space for everyone to be together, whether they want to sit and enjoy the fireplace, prepare and enjoy a meal, or watch television in the adjacent den, all while enjoying the light and view that seem to be right in the home with you.

The main-level master bedroom offers the same great views from the king size bed, and the master bath is truly a wonder to behold with a whirlpool tub and a walk-in shower with 5 spray heads. The master bedroom is adjacent to the rear deck and hot tub, and it also has its own balcony to enjoy the view. The upper level loft bedroom soars high above the rest of the home and feels like a private bedroom. It features a queen bed, a bath with a shower, and a balcony overlooking the hot tub and firepit. There are two bedrooms in the lower level, each with the same stunning view as you get from the rest of the home. The lower king bedroom has an adjacent full bath and its own patio area. The twins bedroom has its own bath and a walk in closet.

The lower level family room is all new, with a 65” flat screen television, surround sound, DVD player, and Bluetooth sound speaker for streaming your music. The pit group couch is large and sumptuous, and there are two other chairs and a table that form a nice conversation area. Wherever you sit in the room, you’ll enjoy the view and the warmth of the fireplace. If you want something cooler, there’s also a wet bar with a refrigerator.

The rear deck with its large hot tub provides a great place to relax, and the firepit next to the deck is a great place to gather in the evening. Back inside, there is high-speed internet with wifi, telephone service, and Directv satellite service for every television.

This home books up fast – don’t wait too long to reserve your dates!

Beautiful Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time visiting Galena. The house was exactly as Tracy describes it. Very spacious and beautiful. The house had everything I wanted. I got to enjoy the hot tub and the view was comforting, it was exactly what we needed for our small getaway. It’s a good 20 minutes drive to their downtown. I would definitely recommend this place. & I am definitely planning to come back.

Beautiful house in Galena Territory!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Galina, about 20 minutes from Chestnut Mountain Resort where we went skiing, with over 7“ of fresh snow we really enjoyed it. This house is located in Galena Territory with beautiful views all around, outside hot tub was a nice bonus. House was clean and comfortable. Will definitely recommend and visit most likely in the future.

Fun Winter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and the views are fantastic. The spacious home was a perfect getaway for our extended family. It was exactly the break we needed to get away for a short weekend, reconnect with the grandchildren, spend quality family time together and not be right on top of each other. The older kids were able to go to the comfortable living room downstairs, while some of us cooked and others played games at the table near the fireplace. We felt that we were all able to comfortable and leisurely commune in this spacious relaxing atmosphere that you have created in this updated home. We are definitely planning to return. T
