Sleeps 12. 5 Bedrooms. 4 Baths.
Our beautiful custom-built 5 bedroom 4 bath log home is truly one of a kind! With a sleeping capacity of 12 it is perfect for any all varieties of visitors, from family gatherings to friend connections to business retreats. Four bedrooms offer queen beds and the fifth has a king. Each is perfectly appointed with unique touches.
The main floor is immediately captivating with its vaulted knotty pine ceiling and massive floor to ceiling windows, which provide breathtaking scenery of tall woods and raw nature in every direction. It is impossible to miss the fascinating wildlife as deer and wild turkey cross paths every day just outside your window. The large living room and 20-foot wood burning, stone fireplace offer a picture perfect setting for sharing stories of the day or making plans for tomorrow. The large kitchen and dining area will accommodate the cook and many helpers (or in some cases… many cooks!). Off the dining area in one direction you will find a screened-in porch perfect for bird watching or simple moments of losing yourself in thought. Exit in another direction and enjoy the open-air deck and perhaps the aroma of dinner being started on the gas barbeque grill. Also on the main floor are two bedrooms, one with a private bath and balcony, the other with lovely stencil-accented walls and a bathroom just outside its door.
The grand and open second-floor loft has plenty of space for kids and adults alike to play games or just hide-out!
Retreat to the lower level for some recreation or more relaxation! Another fireplace is available to warm this large gathering area for movie watching, pool playing or dart throwing. Just want to be an observer? Belly up to the wet bar and enjoy being a spectator. Three more themed bedrooms, each with a log accented wall, surround the lower level with one providing a private bath. The fourth bathroom features a super-sized jetted tub!
Love the smell of truly fresh air? Spend some time lingering on one of the open decks, hike nearby trails or just sit and watch as the local wildlife flourishes in your view.
As the day wanes and the dark of night advances make time for a little star gazing. The incredibly clear night skies bring the stars almost within reach. End the evening telling spooky stories or reminiscing the day’s events around the campfire.

About Tranquil Trails Vacation Rentals
After years dreaming and planning for a home that would remain in our family for generations, we finally decided to build a log house in Galena and, as they say, the rest is history! When building this home we were a family of 9. We are now a family of 18 and continue to enjoy every precious moment in this wonderful retreat. We wanted a home where lifelong family memories would be born… mission accomplished! We have celebrated many specially planned occasions as well as moments of sheer spontaneous laughter in this dream home and we aren’t finished yet! There is always something new to see and discover in this lush and lovely area. Introducing Galena to extended family and many friends has been a joy in itself. Most of this home was handcrafted by our family of construction artists and remains our pride and joy. Now we would like to open our home to other families and groups of friends to forge traditions of their own. It is surprisingly easy to create loving memories when you are able to relax and leave the stress of your real life behind!
Why Tranquil Trails Vacation Rentals chose The Galena Territory
After years of consideration and planning, we decided building a custom home in the Galena Territory would be the best choice for our family. We anticipated the instant relaxation we would feel when walking in the front door. We carefully designed this home to provide the indoor and outdoor space required by our growing clan and our desire to remain close as a family. Situated in a quiet, heavily wooded area of the Territory, our location offered the connection to nature that we desired. It would be a challenge to find a more breathtaking view of nature and it’s wildlife than the one built into this cabin.
What makes this House unique
Our home is a perfect base for activity filled days or lazy, do-nothing days! This retreat offers large groups the space to gather and reinforce family and friend connections, to share good times and some hearty laughter. If every now and then you would like a little privacy, there are plenty of nooks where you can hide away for a few moments to re-connect with yourself!

This beautiful log cabin home easily accomodated our party of 8. Kitchen was a popular hangout, also the two fireplaces, and the media room with pool table. We enjoyed the stay and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay.
Thank you so much Robert! It was a pleasure chatting with you and hosting you and your family. I am so happy that you were pleased with everything and hope you will keep us in mind the next time you are considering Galena as a meeting place!
All the best to you!
Perfect NYE Getaway
Wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of work and the city, we rented this gorgeous cabin in Galena for a long weekend over New Years. It was everything we wanted and more. Big enough for the 5 couples we had staying with multiple fireplaces, a great kitchen and gorgeous views, it felt like we were tucked away in a luxury mountain escape. The cabin is really tucked away and with subzero temperatures all weekend, it was great to ring in the new year in PJs with a fire roaring and the ball dropping on the TV. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get away!!
Thank you Mallory! With the frigid weather you had, enjoying every inch of the house was the best choice! We're so happy you chose to celebrate the new year with friends in The Galena Log Home. Thank you for taking such kind care of the house. Remember, Galena is beautiful in all seasons so please come again! Happy 2018!
Our 4th year at this beautiful log home. Plenty or room for the whole family. Many things to do right in the territory and outside the territory also. Our family loves to come up right before Christmas to enjoy all Galena offers😘 Hope to be back again next Christmas season🎄
Thank you Karen! It is such a nice compliment to have you and your family returning each year to celebrate together. We hope it is a tradition that continues for many years to come. Until next time... all the best!
Something for everyone!
Beautiful property! It was better than the pictures. We would definitely return!!! We saw turkeys and deer. Sitting on the screened porch was like being in a tree house. The clubhouse amenities were enjoyed by the younger crowd.
Thank you for staying with us and for the nice review. I love your "tree house" description of the screened porch! So happy you enjoyed your visit and hope to welcome you again.
Beautiful Home. Everything we expected and more.
Ginger was a pleasure and delivered everything promised! The whole house was very well stocked. The kids loved the loft area. Enjoyed being able to all sit together at the kitchen table. Gorgeous home inside and out. VERY clean!Had a blast down by the fire pit each night. Lots of room for extra air mattresses in the basement. Looking forward to staying again in the future!
Thank you very much for the nice review and for taking such good care of our home. You are welcome back anytime, there is still more to discover in Galena!
We had our family vacation here in late June and had a wonderful time! As the previous posters have mentioned, it is gorgeous and has everything that you could want. From visiting the wineries or the golf courses, the ski hill (to slide on the alpine coaster) or shopping downtown, there is something for everyone to do. We are thinking about coming back here next summer (instead of a new destination) and looking forward to it!
Thank you for the nice review! We are really happy that you were so pleased with the home and the area that you are considering returning. There are still many places to discover in the area and we hope to welcome you back next you so you have a chance to enjoy even more of Galena. Thank you again!
This home is located on one of the most beautiful streets and within some of the tallest trees found in the Galena Territory and we take every advantage of the gorgeous view!
