About Doug Coup

We love our home away from home. Sometimes we never leave the house when we're there. Spending time with family and friends and enjoying the scenery makes this home very special to us. We invite you to experience something special, take the time and enjoy a stay at our home...reCoup.

During the renovation of our home, we stayed at our rental properties around the area. We took that into consideration when we decided to rent our property. We believe our house is very inviting and most guests are surprised how nice the house is, both the furnishings and the accommodations. We know you are taking the time and spending money on a getaway, our house is a wonderful place to stay. The holidays are especially unique at our home.

Doug Coup purchased this house in 2005

Why Doug Coup chose Galena

We spent some time biking and golfing at Eagle Ridge. We just loved it. When our close friends invited us to spend a weekend at their house we were sold! The location is what sold us. See for yourself. Book a weekend with us. Check out Galena.org for an array of activities to suit all.

What makes this house unique

The house is private. At night it is so dark you can see just the stars. It's quiet too! Just the sounds of nature. The mornings are beautiful as well. We watch the deer come through the yard and then the kids begin to bird watch. There is a nice trail right off the back yard. Experience the beauty within the territory. Enjoy a bike ride, hike or horse back ride. Families enjoy the stress free walks around the area. Fall is the perfect time to travel into Galena. The trip and surrounding area is just beautiful with all of the color changes as well as a multitude of events that start in September. Hot Air Balloon rides are a huge hit!!! Better make reservations. Wine Tasting is at it's peak at this time too. Come relax and enjoy a long weekend, you won't regret it. With winter just around the corner, stay warm right beside the fire place. Skiing at Chestnut Mountain is just 15 miles from the house. Once the snow falls, kids can enjoy sledding and snow boarding right on the property. Relax every night in the hot tub while taking in the beautiful winter view! Our house might cost a bit more per night, but it is definitely worth it. You'll enjoy everything about the house. November 22-23 Galena's Nouveau Wine Weekend. Explore 19th century history, shop main streets, paddle a river and challenge your golf game.

Still Owed A Refund Nearly Two Months Later

  • 1 of 5
My family stayed in this house in July 2014. When we arrived, the house had not been fully cleaned and the hot tub didn't work (it was eventually restored a few days later). We had a nice time at the house, and would have been willing to overlook these issues, if we didn't have serious financial issues that are still unresolved. First, the owner mistakenly overcharged our credit card to the tune of $900. Second, the owner has failed to return our security deposit. It's been nearly two months since our stay and, despite repeated promises from the owner, we have yet to see a penny of the substantial sum to which we are entitled. I can't recommend this property as a result.

Here's where we need a negative rating. One star is still too much

Here's where we need a negative rating. One star is still too much

it took SEVEN (7) weeks to get the security deposit back. SEVEN WEEKS. Dealing with Doug made us re-think VRBO ever again. We booked the house and paid by credit card thankfully, bc I had to involve Citibank on Doug's breach of contract. The views are pretty form the living room windows. But the house was FILTHY. The floors had dirt in every corner and against all wall edges. Almost as soon as you enter the house there was a man-handled envelope for a tip to be left for housekeeping. Horrifying being that the house was DIRTY. Every single utensil (meaning pots, pans, knives, spoons, glasses) had dried crusted food. it was repulsive. I had to wash everything BEFORE even using for the first time. The bed in the master bedroom had a broken headboard, the mattresses were so old and lacked any type of support. We left the house cleaner than when we got there. but THEN there was no return of the security deposit. After waiting 2 weeks, we initiatied phone calls, left messages. Doug answered one call saying he'd make the return that day, but he never did. I sent an email, he replied with "waiting on cleaning crew, then we send out checks" this was 4 weeks after we had stayed at his house! And he did NOT have our address to send a supposed check to even if that was the protocol. more phone calls were placed, Doug wouldn't answer. Finally we called from a WORK number so he wouldn't recognize the number and he answered, was flustered, said he'd do it that wkend. that was a lie too. 5 weeks passed and I sent another email to which he never replied. THEN I went to Citibank as Doug clearly was not giving me the money back. Citibank was prompt in helping me and credited me the money. One last phone call was placed to Doug after the 7th week and he THEN accused us of making a big deal and he was confused by our names bc my boyfriend had signed the contract but I paid by credit card. newsflash-we are two distinct people and thus we have two different names. Did he think both our names would simply be JOHN SMITH? In every email communication I CLEARLY put BOTH OUR LEGAL NAMES. finally he wanted to pull a family tragedyexcuse from early in the yr. If you cannot conduct business bc you are in mourning, then don't rent the house. No tragedy justifies him trying to steal money from me. If I didn't have the protection of paying by credit card he would have successfully stolen our hefty security deposit . STAY AWAY FROM THIS OWNER

Owner's Response: This customer did make the inquiry on behalf of him and his girlfriend, and then had his girlfriend pay, and sign the contract. There was some confusion on my side when matching up contracts with payment sand refunds. While I try to manage all of the business on this property from the office computer, a lot of their inquiries came from texts to my mobile which further confused my matching up the program.

Ultimately when I did their refund was processed.

We have since simply allowed guest to pay directly via credit card through vrbo.com rather than independent credit card processing or check as well as not requiring security deposits at all, damage protection is now also offered avoiding any such security deposits as single family home rentals require.

Regarding the cleanliness of the house, this is the first I had heard of it, we have used a service from the local area for years with no issues. They are professional and through.

I am sorry that they had such a poor experience but we take steps to eliminate this in the future.

Family time!

  • 5 of 5
Our family, spanning years between two and seventy, all loved their time together in this special house!
Plenty of room for all...a great deck and fire pit for s'mores in the evenings, and everything active to do at the Owner's Club including tennis, swimming, and basketball. We loved dinners on the deck, and one evening we welcomed an owl who perched on the chimney!

Day ventures included a trip to Galena to explore the town. We walked on the levee, poked in shops, and learned about the early importance of this city near the Mississippi River. Several family members made the trek to the Field of Dreams, not far away in Iowa, and our ten year old ran the bases and talked to the ball players in period uniforms!

This is a very well appointed house welcoming to all. The kitchen had everything we needed, there were toys for little people and a small bike for the two youngest! Family friendly in every way!
Stacy was very helpful in giving us tips on where to buy things, so we didn't waste time. Our four days together were very memorable, and we all thought Galena Territory was a perfect place to meet!

Highly recommended
