Photos and Description of the The Galena Territory vacation townhome rental

Located in Northern Illinois’ most beautiful locales, the 6,800-acre Galena Terr

Set in one of Northern Illinois’ most beautiful and secluded locales, the 6,800-acre Galena Territory, this townhome is located on the 10th hole of the South Course. Golf right outside your door, and when you're finished...walk home. The home has one bedroom and one attached bathroom on each floor, and has been updated to create a relaxing, cozy retreat. This home has been wonderfully popular with 'girlfriend getaways', golfers, and families as well.

Designated by “Forbes Traveler” as one of the 10 prettiest towns in America, the town of Galena is a charming spot that holds dear to its historic roots yet engages and enjoys modern conveniences and modern living. On the banks of the Galena River, this town lies within a National Register Historic District and offers visitors a wealth of activities suitable for many different styles.

Our winter guests enjoy skiing, and Chestnut Mountain Resort is a 20 minute drive from this home. Chestnut Mountain Resort is a Galena, Illinois Resort that has all the amenities you've come to expect in a resort destination, yet its Midwestern roots and small town charm always keeps folks coming back for more. Chestnut Mountain perches high on a ridge overlooking the Mississippi River near the historic riverport of Galena. Nineteen ski and snowboard trails cut through solid rock bluffs range up to 3,500 feet in length and are geared to all levels. Ski or snowboard there, then enjoy your evenings by the fireplace and sleeping soundly in the quiet surroundings of the Galena Territory.

If you prefer to stay closer to your home away from home for your winter activities, the South Course is home to a Winter Wonderland Nordic Center, in which cross country skiing, downhill sledding, and an ice skating pond are offered. Rental equipment is available for a small fee and the Nordic Center is within walking distance of this home. Check here for additional activities and information:

Guests will also have access to The Owners’ Club. The Owner's Club overlooks a wide valley in the heart of The Galena Territory and houses recreational facilities for year-round enjoyment. In the summer, it's easy to spend the entire day at the new Owners Club Complex. There's a new outdoor activity pool, and a separate children's pool with zero depth entry and bubbler inside the pool area. The fitness center overlooks the pool, and has new equipment and new TV's, they've added a new indoor pool open year round, a snack bar with a great menu and limited alcoholic beverages, a game room with pool tables, and tennis courts outside.

When spring is in the air....hiking and cycling are enjoyed by residents and visitors with endless trails to experience and places to see. The Bueler Reserve invites you into a world of butterflies and birds while hiking its beginner trails, and the Galena River Trail is a 3.5 mile trip for cycling and hiking, which affords views of the river and the Caspar Bluff land and Water Reserve which commands unparalleled views of the Mississippi River. Rentals are available in town.

Shenandoah Riding Center is open all year, offering guided horseback rides through the woods and meadows in the Galena Territory. Or take in breathtaking views of Jo Daviess County and the Galena countryside while drifting on a hot air balloon 4,000 feet above the ground. Galena on the Fly takes groups of up to 14 people on a one hour sunrise or sunset ride.

It's a 10 min drive to downtown Galena, where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the historic town. Galena is rich in agriculture, and you’ll find no end to fresh food choices. Local growers gather at farmers markets and you can purchase jams, jellies, along with gourmet items. Galena offers a variety of things to do such as wine tasting tours at Galena Cellars Vineyard, brewery tours at Galena Brewing Company, spa treatments at Wild Clover on a Main, and a wonderful dinner at our guests favorite restaurant Fried Green Tomatoes. The shopping cannot be beat. Antiques, collectibles, coffee shops, parlors, as well as incredible pieces of artwork are offered here. There is a wonderful variety of food choices downtown from casual to fine dining and well as opportunities to take tours of the town. Wander around on your own, or take an organized tour. Relax on a one-hour narrated tour of Galena’s historic sites on an authentic 1940’s San Francisco-style trolley with Tri-State Trolley, open daily May through October.

Distillery for a tour and a tasting of their specialty spirits and cocktails or grab a pint and a bite at the Irish Cottage on your way to downtown.
