About BOBBIE JOHNSON - ROBERT JOHNSON RENTAL LLC

Bob and I moved to The Galena Territory from Naperville with our son, Bret, when he was in second grade. Because we fell in love with The Territory on our first visit we bought a lot that day, later we built our summer home here.

BOBBIE JOHNSON - ROBERT JOHNSON RENTAL LLC purchased this house in 2006

Why BOBBIE JOHNSON - ROBERT JOHNSON RENTAL LLC chose Galena

We first build our home on the lot next door and then bought this lot and built our dream home. It is one of the most beautiful lots in The Territory.

What makes this house unique

I love that TIMBER RIDGE is in the heart of the RESORT CORE but so private. In spring hundreds of daffodils bloom on either side of the driveway. Birds are always singing and it is fun to see the squirrels jumping from tree to tree. We also see deer and the fawns are so cute with their spots.

A beautiful home with gorgeous secluded wooded property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation. We surprised my father in law for his 60th birthday and he was very impressed with the house and area. The house had everything you could possibly need. We are very much looking forward to making Galena a regular vacation and will for sure be staying here again.

Timber Ridge

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Timber Ridge was wonderful. The property is so beautiful and well equipped that it was easy to fully enjoy our short visit. We golfed, used the hot tub, made s'mores at the fire pit, played pool, played tennis, cooked a full family style dinner and breakfast, had a nice meal in town and played board games all evening. That is a lot to pack into a two night stay. I would definitely consider staying there again but hopefully longer so we can take advantage of the nature trails and watersports on the lake.

Our One Month Stay Was So Amazing Our Family is Moving to Galena Later This Year

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent rental property in the Galena Territory. Our family stayed for almost a month. The house had a good flow to it as well as privacy in all of the bedrooms when needed for a retreat from all the activities to just read a book or get a little work done. For those that enjoy cooking and entertaining, the kitchen and dining areas are better than any other rental home we have stayed at. We entertained numerous times and our guests loved the home and its open space. We have vacationed at many rental homes across the U.S. and this home topped them all.

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Timber Ridge House couldn't have been nicer! We were 5 siblings with spouses. We all had bedrooms with baths. There were two dining tables both of which fit the whole family. The kitchen has top of the line appliances with lots of counter space. There were dishes, glassware and silverware galore. Dish soap, laundry soap, cleaning goods, plastic bags, coffee and tea are all provided. The property is spotless.

Some of our group went to the owners pool, the hot tub was used every night as was the pool table. We played board games out in the screen porch. The property is very private with a large back yard and long drive to the house. When we noticed the propane tank to the grill was empty, Bob came immediately bringing one to us.

Thank you Bob and Bobbie for letting us use your beautiful home! We hope to return again next year.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Timber Ridge for a girls getaway weekend and once again, we were impressed with this home along with every amenity that was needed! Bob and Bobbie Johnson are wonderful hosts and so easy to work with. Just a phone call away if needed for questions. Ample room for us gals to spread out, play charades and enjoy some light cooking. The wooded setting is private, serene, and most relaxing yet downtown Galena only a few miles away for shopping and restaurants. We will definitely be making the return trip to Timber Ridge for our annual getaway!
