About Jennifer Harms
My husband and I are self employed and we wanted a place for our adult children to come to that was centrally located. We also wanted a special place for our grandchildren to be able to come to with lots of great activities that they would enjoy as they grow. We usually are there each month for 4-5 days and have enjoyed exploring the area in each season.
Jennifer Harms purchased this house in 2007
Why Jennifer Harms chose Galena
We chose Galena, IL because it was and easy 5 hr drive for us from Stillwater,MN and it is only a 3 hr drive from downtown Chicago and O'Hare airport which makes it convenient for those who fly in.Our granddaughter has really enjoyed the times that we share at the 'Galena house' and I'm sure we will create a lot of great memories there in the future. This area is known as the Galena Territory, a 6800 acre area that is home to the 225-acre Lake Galena and Marina, Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa, with 4 championship golf courses, Shenandoah Riding Center and many hiking and biking trails.
Downtown historic Galena is just 6 miles from our home with lots of many quaint shops, restaurants,art galleries,and wineries. Galena is home to Ulysses S. Grant and has a lot of great historical buildings and tours.
In winter there is sledding, cross country skiing, and downhill skiing at nearby Chestnut Mountain Ski area.

Our whole family had such a wonderful week. Galena is a beautiful place and very peaceful. I wish we had had our bikes! The house was a perfect retreat.
