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 The Galena Territory

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.

Beautiful & spacious home

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home, perfect for our annual get-away for five couples. In addition to the beautiful decor, the house is well-stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen and throughout the house. The pictures don't do it justice.

What a wonderful, beautiful place. It is so much and more....

The house accommodated eight of us with room to spare. We took advantage and enjoyed all the amenities of the house. It is immaculate, beautifully appointed and decorated, and has all you need, just as if you were at home. The owners, Bob and Bobbie Johnson are wonderful to deal with, very accommodating and thoughtful. Our experience was great and we will definitely return.

This was a very nice home one of the best we have ever rented

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice and as indicated private.

The entire home was well kept and the location fit our groups travel needs.

We had 5 couples and each had their own room and bathroom.

Everything was in good working order and the kitchen was well appointed with all of our cooking needs.

The Johnson group was helpful and responsive with our questions.

This is a good value property one of the best we have rented over the last 20 years traveling as a group.

We did not use any of the outside facilities available other than the lounge restaurant at Eagle Ridge for one meal.

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family just celebrated my brothers 50th birthday here as a surprise to him, however we were all surprised to see what a wonderful home this was. We have 7 siblings, this was the first time we all stayed under the same roof in probably 45 years. There was 12 of us here and we all fit comfortably. I was concerned about having an extra propane tank and Bobbie brought it right over. The hide away bed in basement was broke when we went to open it. It is a shame people don't tell the owners when something breaks so they can fix it. Luckily we had an air mattress. I'm sure if I had told Bobbie about it on Friday night, they would have made accommodations immediately. They are great hosts. The house was very clean! You will be very happy to rent from the Johnson's.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home offers so much.... from unbelievable beauty to spacious rooms. All 5 bedrooms have a bathroom. A double or queen size bed. A completely stocked kitchen (seriously)! 2 big dinning rooms. A large family room with plenty of seating. A screened in porch which we were able to get 6 adults and 4 - 10 and 11 year old's in for games and fun. They have a glass table with a Lazy Susan turn table making the board and card games easy to maneuver and play.

The lower level offers a pool table and 3 bedrooms. Step outside from the lower level and you'll find relaxing lounge chairs. Just across the back lawn you'll find an area for an outside fire pit with chairs surrounded by trees. In fact the whole home is set back, surrounded by trees and is very secluded.

Back upstairs you'll find you can access the very long deck from 3 different points of the house. The deck offers a Weber gas grill, 2 good size areas for seating with tables and chairs along with a 4 person hot tub. My family and I really enjoyed our stay and plan on making this an annual trip!
