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.

What makes this house unique

While staying at our rental property you can enjoy all the Territory has to offer. You will receive amenity tags that give you access to the Territory Owners Club which has a large outdoor pool with lots of tables and umbrellas to enjoy a picnic near the pool or food from the concession stand. You will also have access to the indoor basketball court, fitness center, game room complete with pool tables, table tennis, foosball, and board games. Also outside you find a tennis court and play area for the little ones.

You will also be given a discount at the Marina where you can rent canoes, pontoon or fishing boats.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Great!

  • 5 of 5
Great place to spend a long weekend with the extended family.
8 adults and 2 kids (and one dog) fit comfortably. We had some great meals, spent some lovely time at the fire, visited lovely Galena, found some nice hikes to go on, and the kids had a great time swimming.
This place is wonderful.

This is a very nice house with plenty of room for families. It is well stocked with supplies and toys for the kids. We were able to use the owners club pool. Everything worked well except the furnace. We had to call for repairs at 4:00am because it was down to 55 degrees and dropping. The repair man was very nice and was able to get the furnace going again. I would definitely recommend this house and I would consider returning also.

Thanksgiving Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to Galena for a 5 day Thanksgiving weekend with some friends and our teenage daughter. This home is just beautiful. It is very spacious and extremely clean. We had everything we needed to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner; the kitchen is fully stocked with pots/pans/utensils/dishes, etc. The bedrooms and bathrooms are wonderful. The beds are VERY comfortable!

The owner had the home decorated for Christmas with a Christmas tree and lights. It made the cozy living area even cozier. A generous amount of firewood was available.

All in all - a great trip! We can't thank you enough for sharing your wonderful home. We will be back.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you had a nice time at our home in Galena. There is so much to do in the area throughout the year whether it is shopping, skiing, sledding skating, Owners Club pool, hiking or riding horses. It is all within the Galena area.
I will look forward to hearing from you in the future.

Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our dog stayed here for a long weekend. We were looking for a pet friendly property, and we found it. Even though it was just the 3 of us we wanted a place where we would be somewhat secluded but have access easy to Galena. It was very easy to get to Highway 20 from this property. We did venture into the rest of the Territory and with all the winding roads and limited GPS we were glad we chose this property over one that was further in. The Territory is filled with walking trails and a trail head was just across the main street. We also had a nice grassy area just outside the house for our dog. The house was very clean and comfortable. It was too cold outside for us to enjoy the screened in porch, but the photo on the website does not do it justice, it fits a 6 person table with ease and is very well kept for an outdoor space. The owner was very friendly and accomidating, and very quick with payment and arrival details. I would defiantly stay here again and recommend this property to family.
