About the Property
4 BD/3.5 BA
From the great room you can walk out onto the deck, which spans the length of the cabin, and watch the wildlife in action. Every view from this home offers a panorama of wooded landscape. Positioned high on a bluff, seasonal views of Lake Galena appear. This is a special place where lifetime memories will be made. Beware… you will want to return as often as possible!
On the upper level, with open walkway above the great room, there are two more bedrooms (each with queen bed) and a large bath with window and skylight. The bedrooms are decorated in appropriate woodsy themes!
The lower level is the center of recreation in this gorgeous log home. The surround sound television area is fit with a huge movie library of all genres. The L-shaped sofa opens to a queen sleeper providing a perfect place for the kids to camp at night. A large open area with an abundance of toys & games will keep children occupied for hours at a time. Billiards enthusiasts can have a progressive pool tournament throughout their stay or just indulge in a friendly game anytime they choose. The fourth bedroom (queen bed) and a full bath are also located on this level.
From the lower level recreation area take a step outside and you are in the middle of one of the most beautiful wooded areas in the Galena Territory. Keep the feeders full and you will enjoy a spectacle of colorful birds, wild turkey, deer and many other surprise visitors. Walk down to the fire-pit, start a small fire and share stories with friends and family but whatever you do… don’t forget the marshmallows!

This 4 bedroom 3.5 bathroom home is located near Lake Galena in the beautiful Galena Territory. Boat rentals are available to fish or cruise this picturesque and well stocked body of water. If you love nature of all kinds, you have found a perfect spot to watch, listen, and enjoy many species of wildlife. The Territory Owners Club is just minutes away from our home and offers an outdoor pool, indoor pool, game room, fitness center, basketball court, tennis courts, and children's playground. No matter which direction you are coming from, the soft rolling hills in this corner of Illinois are uniquely welcoming and promise to take you far far away from your daily mental routine. Explore the area by day and retreat to our peaceful pocket of paradise by night.
About: We are a brother/sister plus spouses team with hectic and crazy schedules that absolutely needed a secluded and peaceful place to retreat. We are a unique combination of a music promoter & rock and roll musician, and a transportation executive & fashion industry recruiter. As a result you will find a chic melodic tone flowing through our home! Though our schedules still keep us on the go we are working hard to free up as much time as possible to enjoy our vacation home. When we can’t do that, we invite others to enjoy it in our place and feed our wildlife friends.
Why The Galena Territory, Guilford Township, IL, USA:
We love the outdoors, hiking, and nature of all variety. Galena and its surrounding area provide a treasure of nature preserves and hiking trails. Pioneering is never disappointing! We are always discovering new areas and bountiful unspoiled lands to explore. The business exec among us is happiest when on the golf course and when we found an area that provided both, in generous measure, we knew we found our paradise. Our interest in genealogy and local history is fed by Galena’s many historic sites, and you’ll find a montage of our ancestors gracing a wall upstairs.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Every vantage point whether on the inside or the outside of our home, offers a panorama of tall woods that change with every season. We could not have chosen a better spot to relax, savor our limited free time, commune with nature and appreciate the wildlife that we love so much. Boulder Creek is certified as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.
