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.

ACCOMMODATIONS THAT GO ABOVE AND BEYOND

  • 5 of 5

This house have EVERYTHING you need and more! The amenities are endless and thoughtful from the paper products to the 2 refrigerators! The Johnsons are attentive and super nice to work with! My 79 year old mom/grandma enjoyed excellent accommodations on the main floor were all the action was. We were amazed that every bedroom had its own bathroom! The house is like new, immaculate and well appointed. Galena is a beautiful location with activities for all ages and interests.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were in Galena for our daughters wedding. This home was the perfect place to stay. Beautiful and quiet. The kitchen had everything I could think of. The furnishing were comfortable and inviting. Loved the decorations in the home. I found something new to look at everyday. Just a big thank you for sharing your home with us for this special occasion.

Fabulous home, service, memories

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home with an enormous amount of space for us four couple friends to spread out, spend time together and enjoy our surroundings. We were more than satisfied. The house was very clean, the kitchen was stocked better than any rental home we have ever been in(almost better than our own kitchens), the great room was perfect for relaxing, playing games and chatting. We played some pool, sat in the hot tub while enjoying the stars and seclusion, went into Galena for some shopping and entertainment(only about 15 min. From downtown) and toured the Blaum's Brothers Distillery. We also saw some turkeys in the woods behind the house, enjoyed the numerous walking trails in Galena territory and relaxing on the deck when the sun popped out. Bobbi and Robert answered all our questions and made us feel very welcome in their home. This is definitely a house we will refer to others and hopefully get to rent again if we ever revisit the area.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we hoped for and more. It was truly a hideaway in the woods. The kitchen was fully loaded with implements. The common spaces were perfect for group entertainment, and the bedrooms were very private. Our focus was entirely on golf, and this accommodation provided exactly what we needed. The Johnsons are wonderful to work with, and we plan to do so again in the future. I highly recommend patroning these top notch inn keepers. -K. Hensley
