COZY GALENA TERRITORY HOME / GOLF COURSE VIEW / WIFI

Galena House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8, fulll kitchen, greatroom w/ stone fireplace

The home has been all updated. There are three level to the home. The lower level has Laundry facilities, Full bath with tub and shower, Family room area with deck to the outdoors, also a Bedroom with two full size beds.

The first level has a great room with a stonewall fireplace, full kitchen, harvest eating table, screened porch, and a deck. It also has a queen size bed in bedroom and a full bath with tub and shower.

The upper level has a Bedroom with Queen size bed, a loft area with a Twin bed and a Full bath with a shower only. The home is decorated in a rustic decor. It has a view of the third hole of the north golf course from the upper and lower decks on the back of house. There is a gas grill for grilling out.

Groceries: The drive to Galena coming from the east is a very pleasant drive. You travel in a US Rt 20 which is a two lane highway. You travel thru many small towns such as Lena, Elizabeth, Stockton. There is a grocery store in the town of Stockton by the name of 'Sullivans Foods', this is a great place to stop and stock up on reasonably priced groceries as you are arriving. In the territories there is a general store for necessities, there is also a wonderful deli and bakery and meat counter here. They do also rent more current videos here for a 24 hour time period. You can also stay on Rt 20 past the turn to get downtown galena and there is a Piggly Wiggly and a Walmart super store. Gas at the Walmart is usually cheaper.

Short cut to town: When driving out of Green View Lane you want to take a left on to eagle ridge dr. and then your very next left on to thunder bay from here you will drive about 2 miles you will see the trash facilty on the left side just before that there is a farm road that will take you out to Rt 20 again. This will cut down your drive to town at least 15 minutes or more.

House essentials: When you arrive at the house you will need to turn on the water which is located inn the laundry room on the lowest level. Behind the door you will see a faucet, you need to open that valve when you arrive and close that valve when you leave. The thermostat has been programed for the heat and the cooling. When you arrive you need to open the cover and push run program and when you leave if you could set it at 55 degrees in the winter and in the summer at 80 degrees. I have a well stocked kitchen for your use, pat and pans, dishes for a service of 8 people, coffee pot, tea kettle,silverware, cutting knives, toaster, a few serving dishes, cutting boards, measuring cups, few spices, salt & pepper, sugar, paper towels, dish towels, dish soap, cleaning supplies. Let me know if there is any questions about any other items. The bathrooms have toiletries, body soap, hand soap. I also have laundry soap if you need to wash a few things in the new front load washer & dryer.

About Sandra Spence

We purchased the property for our own families use. As our family grew and we weren't able to spend as much time there, we decided to share our home with others. It has been a wonderful experience getting to know others who have come to enjoy the Galena area as much as we have.

Sandra Spence purchased this house in 2002

Why Sandra Spence chose Galena

The nice thing about this property is that it has a wonderful view of the golf course and yet very private. The area provides great outdoor activities all year round. Boating, Fishing, Golfing and Hiking in the spring, summer and fall. Skiing in the winter season and relaxing by a cozy fire.

What makes this house unique

I believe the most unique benefit to this property is it's location it is centrally located in the Galena Territory Area. It is about 5 min, drive to the Eagle Ridge Inn which is convenient for many of our guest who are attending weddings at the Inn.

Beautiful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We had a ladies get-away in Sept. 2009 and stayed at this lovely home. It is in the Galena Territories, and has amazing views. It was well stocked, incredibly clean, and nicely updated and decorated. The screened in porch was a great place for coffee. There were 3 floors, so plenty of space to spread out. The kitchen was completely stocked. I can't think of anything "missing". If you've never been to Galena, you have to visit the Territories. We actually went on the official Galena "girlfriends getaway weekend", but we never even ventured up town to the main drag of stores and restaurants. The Territories is like its own little world. Quiet, tranquil, rolling hills, beautiful homes, general store, golf courses, ponds, water falls, etc. It's an amazing place, and so is this rental home. WELL WORTH the price. We hope to come back some year and spend New Years Eve there w/ a bunch of couples. And Sandy was very responsive and helpful. Thank you for sharing your lovely home!

Owner's Response: I am so pleased to have yet another wonderful review on my web page. I continue to feel my efforts are well spent when I have so many people enjoying their families and friends there. It is a truly wonderful place to get away! I do wish to assure visitors that there are not any concerns with mold issues at my property, all of the lower level carpet has been replaced after a broken pipe was repaired this past summer. I appreciate you looking at my reviews and I look forward to hearing from you. Sandy

Great Golf Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place! There were 8 guys staying at the house for two nights for a golf weekend & we were all comfortable the entire time. Plenty of room, very well maintained & a beautiful location right on the 3rd Fairway of the North Course. We've rented other houses in Galena, and this was without question our best experience! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun weekend in the territory!

Perfect Winter Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
Our family (five adults and three children) enjoyed an amazing five days and four nights in this home. It was absolutely perfect. Warm, cozy, easy to find, and an absolutely perfect place to spend a few snow-filled days after Christmas. We enjoyed games at the large dining room table, evenings by the fireplace, movies upstairs and down, super cozy bedding, sledding in the back yard, cooking meals together in the kitchen, and watching deer from the back windows. The location is great...and even though roads were snow covered...we could easily navigate the rest of the resort area and downtown Galena. The use of the washer and dryer was a nice touch as well. Sandra was easy to work with and quick to answer any question we had. Would gladly encourage anyone to stay here...and we love to visit again! Thanks for a great trip filled with wonderful family memories!

Wonderful Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We spent a weekend at the home for a girls getaway and had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and well stocked with everything we needed. The area was quiet and we enjoyed the work out facility immensely. The house was very clean!! We would love to come back with our families.

We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5
My parents, siblings, and respective husbands and kids have been getting away for the July 4th weekend for 15 years now. We collectively review the homes we rent during our stay. This trip included 7 adults and 4 kids ages 1-7.

We definitely enjoyed the stay. As other reviewers noted, the home is well appointed and very clean. The pictures on the website were very accurate.

There was room for everyone to sleep on a nice bed/mattress. The linens were nice. However, the top level is on the warm side. The fans helped somewhat.

We felt that the eating area was a little tight for all of us. Also, we cooked all our meals at the house and felt that the kitchen could use some more pots, pans, serving dishes. We improvised just fine though.

The Territory is quite nice and includes great amenities.We made great use of the six pool passes provided to us by the owner and finished the stay with a fun pantoon boat ride!

We wished we had more outdoor seating options but it was not a huge deal to us.

In all, it was a great place to stay and we would recommend it to others. The owner was easy to work with too.

This property is located in the galena territories, a unique golfing community with many family activities! It is about 15 minutes from the town of galena which is an old stage coach town along the Mississippi river. The town is full of little shops and restaurants that is set into the hillside.

Golf: There are four separate golf courses in the Galena Territories. There is the north course the south course and a short 9 holes course and also what is called the 'General' a more difficult course. I am not a member of these courses, but you can easily set up tee times in the golf season.

There is ski rental there in the winter and in the summer they have an alpine slide that is great fun for the whole family.
