About The Owner
Hi-Welcome to our home. We're Bill and Sue. Several years ago our friends invited us to take a drive out to Galena with them. We didn’t know then about the rich history Galena boasts of, the beauty of the deep vistas and the tranquility of the woods and abundant wildlife, however these are the wonders that brought us back....year after year. Each visit introduced us to new discoveries in Northwest Illinois and educational interests and experiences for our children.
The Owner purchased this house in 2004
Why The Owner chose Galena
Galena is close enough yet far enough away from home; 3 hours drive from Chicago making it the perfect get-away place for a weekend trip. It is tucked away in Northwest Illinois and unlike the rest of the state of IL, Galena is hilly and picturesque. Downtown Galena is like stepping back in time with mid 19th century architecture aligning Main Street and beyond. Located 8 miles from town is our home, nestled in the Galena Territory. It is peaceful, yet a fun place for a large group or extended family gathering. It is a solid built home. We love it here and hope you will too.
What makes this house unique
Enjoy a game of pool or ping pong, challenge your friends to a game of poker, or relax in the outdoor private hot tub. Take a swim at the outdoor pool located at the owner's club on Territory Drive. Enjoy grilling with our 'never run out of gas' grill or just relax and enjoy the soothing sounds of nature from the three seasons room. Experience the natural surroundings; take a hike down the many trails in the Territory. Golf the 'General' or ski down the slopes of Chestnut Mountain Resort. Year-round activities make Galena the escape weekend destination.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Bill & Sue,
Thank you both for sharing your beautiful Retreat House with us for our Annual College Gals Reunion Weekend!!! It was the perfect setting to gather & celebrate our 41 year friendship! We loved the updates you've made (although we thought your home was perfect before!) & all the special touches you added with Fall decorations were appreciated. We stayed with you in April 2012, but all agreed that spending an October weekend in the Galena area was truly magical! The fall colors were spectacular, we enjoyed trail walks, gathering on the screened porch, cozy fires, the Halloween parade in town & our afternoon at the Galena Winery. Also, your kitchen is absolutely the best equipped kitchen we've ever had the pleasure of cooking in!
Thanks for sharing your amazing home with us!
