About Joan Raymond
My grandparents owned a farm very close to The Galena Territory where I spent every Sunday, as well as many weeks in the summer as a child. I have very fond memories of the area! Even though I live in Colorado, we come to Galena as often as we can. All of my family still lives throughout the tri-state area.
Joan Raymond purchased this House in 2013
Why Joan Raymond chose The Galena Territory
We walked into this house and were impressed with every aspect of it, not to mention the incredible Burr oak tree in the back yard which was almost reason enough to buy the property. My family and I have rented houses through VRBO and Home Away all over the world and have become very picky about what we expect and we knew that this house had it!!
What makes this House unique
The house was thoughtfully designed for comfort, flow and entertaining. Every room has a great view. You feel like you are in a treehouse. The open feel of the home is accentuated with a different ceiling in each room. The center marble island in the kitchen evolves into the gathering place. The hickory floor, knotty alder woodwork, the warm glow of a fireplace and the sound of wildlife makes this a perfect destination getaway for corporations, family or friends.

Our stay was fantastic!
Everyone in our group already told me they can't wait until we do it again. We will definitely be looking for this property the next time we book. Thank you for everything and making our stay so wonderful.
The Best of Times
Perfect house for all 4 families to get together. My 4 year old grandson Lucas has decided that all 4 families should just move there and stay forever. This is our second stay at this house, and it was as great as the first time. Thank you to Joan for sharing a true treasure with others.

Perfect for family time
This is our second time bringing our family to this home to celebrate after Christmas and we absolutely love this place. Love the space which accommodates spaces for the kids to have fun and the adults to be together in other places. The home is beautifully decorated, the kitchen is my favorite and it has great bedrooms/bathrooms and linens, plus extras. It is well supplied with everything you could possibly need and sits in a lovely private setting.
We all love coming to this home! Thank you!
Wowwwww Beautiful place!!!
Huge and beautiful Home!!!!!
Beautiful and comfortable vacation home
We were very impressed when we walked in and things got better from there. We loved the open concept living area, the well equipped kitchen, gorgeous bathrooms and spacious bedrooms. We used and enjoyed the lower level game room, hot tub and wood burning fireplace on the porch. The cooler drawers in the bar area and refrigerator in the laundry room were truly appreciated. We have one minor suggestion to add an electric tea kettle. Maybe there is one that we never found! Thank you for the wonderful vacation opportunity.
We had a wonderful time visiting Galena. This home was the perfect location for us to gather with family for a weekend away. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking to entertain a large group. So much space! And great amenities too: pool table, Foosball table, hot tub, large open kitchen. Would love to come back again soon. Thank you!
