This townhome is located in The Galena Territory 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This lovely, warm, inviting townhome was just perfect to handle the overflow of guests that came to Galena to help me celebrate my 60th. The location was great; near the sledding hill, which we used with our sons and granddaughters. Thanks to the owners for providing two sleds! Can I say it again? Perfect!

We bought our golf villa in 2009 because we have family members that live in the territory. We enjoy spending time here when we can. Galena is close to many attractions. Wineries, antiques, golf, skiing, shopping, dining, museums, historical attractions...more activities than one weekend can handle. Not to mention the fact that the home is located in the Galena Territory, in Eagle Ridge, on the golf course. In the Territory there are restaurants, a spa, a marina, and horse stables.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2009

We chose to buy in Galena because of it's proximity to the Chicago area and because of the many attractions here. Galena has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment and a lot of variety. It's a very charming yet relaxing town. There are many things to do in Galena including hiking, shopping, sightseeing, wine tasting and of course golfing. The town is filled with quaint shops, coffeehouses and restaurants, as well as artisan shops.

While staying at our property, renters will have access to all of the amenities of the brand new Owners Club Complex at no extra fee. The Owners Club Complex includes an outdoor pool with a designated children's area, an indoor pool for year round use, a concessions area, fitness room, tennis courts, marina....

COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR MORE

Couldn't Have Asked for More
  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for 3 nights mid-week on 1st trip to Galena for my daughter's attendance at a writing camp at the Belden School. The townhome had everything we would ask for - modern comfort, Wi-Fi, nice TVs, wonderful patio, pool passes, well-stocked kitchen (utensils, plates, cups, etc.), free coffee, games to play, Galena information to study, and so on and so forth. They obviously care about their renters and want them to enjoy their stay. You can always get a feel for the owners by the little things, and this place came through!

The unit is a split level with bedroom and bath upstairs and downstairs. Common area (kitchen, living room) is downstairs. This made it ideal for us, with the kids upstairs and the adults downstairs. It would also work well with two couples each having their own bit of privacy.

The Galena Territory is HUGE and I don't think any particular location is better than any other. This townhouse was somewhat secluded with large shade trees which we liked.

This was our first visit to Galena and we will certainly come back. And when we do, we will book this townhouse. It was great and the price made it a great value. And NO, we don't know the owners, so this is a legit and independent review.

CIVIL WAR REANACTMENT WEEKEND

  • 4 of 5
We really loved your townhome and enjoyed our stay. There were 2 areas that I think could use some improvement. The towels and washcloths in the downstairs bathroom smelled sour and the bathtub in the downstairs bathroom was not very clean. Neither was the rubber mat in the tub and the rug outside of the bathtub. Improvement in these areas would make me change my rating from Good to Excellent :)

GREAT WINTER GET-AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have visited the territory many times over the years and I have to say, this property was the best of any rental we have ever experienced. The owners, Bill and Debbie, are extremely accommodating and are truly interested in making your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The townhouse is beautifully decorated and well stocked with everything you need. We especially loved the GAS fireplace...all the warmth and coziness without the hassle of logs and mess. The kitchen was clean and all the appliances are new. The beds are so comfy and even though it was cold and snowy during our stay, the rooms were warm and inviting.
I will definitely contact Bill and Debbie again when we return to Galena and recommend their property to friends and family.

GREAT GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
My family and I planned a last minute ski trip to Galena and were lucky enough to find Bill and Debbie's home. It's the perfect place for a small family to stay. We have never tried VRBO before and will definitely do it again..and look forward to returning to Bill and Debbie's. Their kitchen is well stocked with appliances, dishes, spices, etc. and the house is comfortable and clean. They have a ton of games in the closet that kept my kids (and my husband and I) entertained vs watching TV (although they have 3, with cable). We all slept comfortably (instead of uncomfortably in a hotel room) and enjoyed eating home cooked meals after cold days on the slopes of Chestnut Mountain (about a 25 minute drive). Thanks for the great hospitality Bill and Debbie!

WONDERFUL SPOT OUTSIDE GALENA

  • 4 of 5
We celebrated my Mom's birthday with a night in Galena. This property was very clean, well appointed and spacious for our group of 4. (They even had a closet full of games!) While the condo is located outside of Galena it is an easy drive and worth it for the additional space you get vs one of the B&Bs in town. This would be a great spot for couples too as it has a lot of privacy. We definitely enjoyed this location and would love to come back!

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY FOR A GALENA WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Bill and Debbie's condo while in Galena for a friend's wedding, also falling on a long holiday weekend. Bill and Debbie were extremely easy to work with, especially for a first time VRBOer. Their condo had it all - great decor, comfy beds, all the info you could want on what to do in Galena, great location, clean, easy to find within the maze that is Eagle Ridge, the list goes on. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Thanks again Bill and Debbie, if we visit in Galena in the future, your condo will be our first choice!
