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!

Thank you. Tracey! We all had a wonderful time and enjoyed our reunion! The houses were great and worked out well for us! Everyone was pleased with their accommodations.

Amazingly Spacious and Clean Home

  • 5 of 5

This spacious home was exceptionally clean and wonderful overall! The Great room was fantastic for movies, there was plenty of space for the entire family, and the Hot Tub was the Highlight of the weekend. My husband and I felt at home and we didn't want to leave. We really appreciated the variety of pots and pans available in the kitchen- it was a great space to cook in! This is a perfect location for bonding, memories, and having a great vacation for all ages. The manager Tracey was extremely pleasant and very professional when called upon. I highly recommend this home and definitely will be back.

Long weekend getaway with the kids!

  • 4 of 5

We picked this property for the size and value. We were not disappointed! Lots of space and nicely decorated. The great wall of Windows is pretty spectacular......loved it. Even with a couple rainy days, the owners club saves it(pool, game room, and gym). Tracey came within a half hour of being called to get the satellite and ceiling fans working. Excellent response time. Very clean also. Only 4 stars for a few reasons.....many light bulbs need replacing, we would have loved a fire pit out back (our preference), satellite tv on main floor was very touchy, older lower level furniture, and the grill needed a good cleaning(about started the patio on fire for all the grease in the bottom of it). We would absolutely rent here again! Sometimes the imperfections add to the best memories.....

Best bachlorette weekend ever!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in celebration of my best friend getting married! We needed a location to accommodate a group of girls traveling from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Illinois. This house could not have been better! It's open floor plan allowed us all to spread out but still feel like we were all having a slumber party! The view to and from the house were absolutely rejuventating. All in all this was one of my favorite vacation weekends! We had absolutely EVERYTHING we could have wanted and more! Definitely will come back to Galena, and absolutely will check the availabity to this house first thing!

I LOVE THIS HOME. Pictures does no justice.

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I spent a weekend in this home for my birthday. It was perfect. The view from every window is gorgeous and the view of the home from the road is to die for. Tracey was excellent and everything was easy to find once we could get out the territory. The kitchen had everything we needed for the huge breakfast lunch and dinner. There was more than enough room for us all plus more. THE HOT TUB IS THE BEST NEXT TO THE MASTER SUITE. WILL BE BACK VERY SOON. PERFECT RELAXING GETAWAY.

Amazing price with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this home towards the end of September 2013 for our "babymoon." It was incredible. The master bedroom was large with a very comfortable bed. The bedroom also featured a very large walk in closet and a master bathroom you had to see to believe. The loft bedroom is really cool as well. The basement was large and would be great as a secondary hang out room. However, the great room is where this house really shines. With huge windows overlooking the the Shenandoah valley you won't want to leave the comfortable chairs! What you would never realize though is how breathtaking the view is at night. The big dipper falls over the valley beautifully and you get a great view of the stars. Turn off all of the lights and enjoy! Loved staying here and would definitely stay here again!
