About Tracey Hartz

The owners are from the Chicago area. They keep the decorating and furnishings in this home up-to-date, and they maintain the home in perfect condition. They provide many extra amenities, especially in the kitchen. They are fastidious about the cleanliness of their home and when you walk in the door you will see immediately that they love and enjoy this home.

Tracey Hartz purchased this house in 2012

Why Tracey Hartz chose The Galena Territory

The owners chose this property because it is located on a beautiful lot that backs up to a wooded area. The property is screened from the adjacent homes, so you won't even know they are there. This home has one of the most lush and rolling lawns we have seen in the area. This home is located in a quiet area that is close to amenities.

What makes this house unique

The home is upgraded, and you will feel like you're entering a contemporary home when you arrive. The bedrooms in this home are truly special, with sumptuous furnishing, upgrade beds, and a very special feeling.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much for your assistance with the rental at this home. We had a great long weekend/Thanksgiving with everyone. What a beautiful home, setting, weather, sunsets! Hope to do it again.,

We loved this home & our pets did, too!

We had a great stay at this home while attending a wedding in Galena. Plenty of space and things to do (the games were a plus). Our dogs enjoyed the stay as well - especially exploring the outdoors!

Great family home for a getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying in this home for a spring break getaway! It was very family friendly and had everything we needed for our young kids and the adults as well. The decor was very nice and we especially enjoyed the fireplace and beautiful wooded setting! We will most definitely be going back again:)

Cozy House for Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house really worked out well for our family of adult children and spouses. Having 3 en suite bedrooms made all the difference. Fireplace was a great extra!! Lack of lighting was an issue for reading away from the dining room table. Especially in the bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Hello! We're happy that you liked our home, and thanks for letting us know that you needed more light. We replaced all the light bulbs with higher wattage and added a few lamps so there is better lighting throughout the house.
