About the property

Looking for a little piece of country? Our ranch home is located in The Galena Territory. Step into quiet life in Galena for the perfect weekend getaway!

Whether you are planning to visit Galena on a romantic retreat for two, for a couples getaway, with girlfriends for a wine tasting weekend, with the guys for a golf weekend, as a reunion with another family, or just bringing the kids out for the weekend, our home will easily accommodate your stay.

Our home sleeps up to 10 people. The four bedrooms (with 5 queen beds total) each have a television, plenty of closet space and are designed with comfort in mind. If people want to spread out, we have two couches that pull out to beds as well. Bedroom linens are provided.

Four full bathrooms are clean and provide plenty of privacy for all guests. Bathroom linens are provided.

Our home is equipped in technology and gadgets. We have dedicated WiFi - log in once and you will be set for the entire stay! We have large flat screen televisions mounted in the main floor and basement living areas. Even more, the main floor TV has Netflix and Pandora access. Sit back, relax and catch up on movies, TV and listen to music. In the basement, the community TV also has an Xbox system installed. Bring your favorite games, play one of ours, or rent them from a nearby RedBox.

For additional entertainment, we have board games, card games, puzzles, air hockey table and dart board. Plenty of fun, no matter your age!

If you prefer to cook during your visit, our kitchen will delight you. With recently upgraded amenities, and a recent appliance update in March 2013, you will love cooking here!

During warmer weather, grill a meal outside and enjoy our deck, screened porch and lower patio. And enjoy the backyard fire pit!

Don't forget about Galena in the winter months! The hills create the perfect ski slopes and sledding hills. Ice skating is picture perfect. It really is a wonderful winter getaway!

We look forward to hosting your special getaway in Galena.....

Galena has something to offer for everyone. Shopping, golfing, hiking, bicycling, fishing, skiing, sledding, leisure boating, horseback riding, and animal watching are popular among visitors. For the photography enthusiast, there is no better canvas to capture. History buffs will love how Galena takes you back in time. Or see a birds-eye view of Galena from a hot air balloon, another favorite tourist activity.

The hills of Galena are the perfect challenge for bicyclists. Every year, athletes flock to Jo Daviess County for 5Ks, 10ks, half marathons, duathlons and triathlons. The Owner's Club has a state of the art workout room, indoor and outdoor pool and indoor basketball court. Tennis and basketball courts are located throughout the Territory for additional outside sports enjoyment. Ask us for preferred routes for various length runs and cycle rides that would leave from our home - we would be happy to share them with you.

Galena loves to celebrate! Mardi Gras, Wine Lovers' Weekend, President Grant's Birthday, Girlfriend Getaway, Galena Country Fair, and Nouveau Weekend are all theme weekends. If you like parades, Galena is the place to be! St. Patrick's Day, Independence Day and Halloween are all holidays worthy of this red carpet treatment. And of course Christmas is when Galena truly sparkles and shines. Nothing is more perfect. Which festive weekend will bring you to Galena?

We all have to eat, and Galena offers some pretty amazing options! While we do enjoy cooking at home, we always enjoy a visit to a local eatery. This quaint, small town has a variety of dining choices.

Above all, we love sharing everything that Galena has with our kids. History, beauty, fun and most of all, family memories. We hope that you can share what you love most about Galena with someone soon!
