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!

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

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.

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.

FAMILY REUNION

What a great place to enjoy our time together! All of the comforts of home! We are booking again next year. There are many things to do in Galena, but we also enjoyed just being together. Sharing meals, playing games and catching up.

AWESOME HOME !!

  • 5 of 5
Awesome home !! We chose this home for an annual family reunion. We loved it so much that we are considering going back next year. The house fit us perfectly. 4 of the 5 bedrooms have your own private bathroom which was nice and very convenient. The master suite was beautiful. The TV room had a sleeper sofa which was great for a 6th bedroom and we even used the poker room (we brought an air mattress) to be used for a teenager's bedroom. The home was gorgeous, clean and up to date. The owners went above and beyond by decorating it for the 4th of July ! It was surrounded by woods and very private. Even though there were a few other houses in the cul de sac, you would never know being inside or outside. You could only see the tops of the driveways. This home has wonderful amenities: beautiful 3 season room, deck with a nice patio set and grill, pool/ping-pong table, poker room with a poker table, a hot tub which had nice ambiance and a fire pit. There were lots of towels in every bathroom and there was also a laundry room. Nearby you could use the rec center which had tennis courts, an indoor and outdoor pool, arcade room, fitness room, a basketball court, snack bar and a nearby spa and marina. I believe there were things to do around the marina as well. There was also a pond for fishing, but you still need a fishing license. Other activities to do in the area included miniature golf, winerys, several golf courses, a distillery with tours and tastings, hiking, antique shops, shopping downtown Galena, tours of Ulysses S. Grant's home, horseback riding, kayak rentals, stand up paddle board rentals and so much more. If you have an elderly couple, I would suggest they stay in the master suite. I HIGHLY recommend this house !!

COMFORTABLE AND FULL OF FUN

  • 5 of 5
Rented for family reunion. Clean. Teenagers had their own space. Adults had their own space. Bedrooms were spaciouse. Each couple having their own toilet was also really nice. Cooked large group meals 2 times daily with plenty of cookware/dishes. Hot tub is large and easily fits 6 adults (although its rated for 8 I think).

SUCH A LOVELY HOME FOR A FRIENDS VACATION - KID FRIENDLY

  • 5 of 5
every year we take a winter break with friends in this home, and every year we love it more and more. the home is large but cozy, easy to locate and get to galena's amenities. the hot tub - the pool table - the updated kitchen - lots of room for all 10 of us to spread out (including two kiddos) and have fun, play games, relax. it really is the best. and the owners are so responsive and friendly - i couldn't ask for more. :)

FAMILY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
My husband our 6 children ages 16 to 36 spouse and grandkids for a total of 12 and 2 infants,spent a weekend here. The house is so warm,welcome and comfortable. There was room for everyone with a bathroom in each bedroom which is really nice! Every bed was so comfortable. Even the bedding was of high quality soft sheets and good pillows. There is not one thing in that kitchen we could have needed and it was not there. I even brought my own crockpot assuming there was not one there. I was wrong. It looks so much bigger inside than outside. We all sat around playing games and never felt crowded or cramped.Beautiful views from every window. It was dark when we arrived and when I woke I realized even in the dead of winter the view was splendid! Everyone went skiing to chestnut mountain (except the infant's and me) It was a short drive and all enjoyed it. There was a lot to do in the basement if the teenagers or someone wanted to play pool or ping pong,which they did.I guess there is a lot to do in the area but we never left the house except when we checked out than took the short drive to town,which also was just lovely. We walked around for about 2 hours. Every store owner or wine shop owner(Jamie) were so, so nice. The owner's Bill and Sue were pleasant and easy to deal with. The house was very clean and well cared for. The only very small thing my son who is 16 missed was tv anywhere in the house with an HDMI source for his game system.That did not affect the rest of us though. Some of the toilet's even had the built in training seat for toddlers. What a thoughtful thing to include. I would most certainly recommend this home to friends and would also stay again.

Owner's Response: Hi Carla,
Thank you for the super five star review and we welcome your next stay at the Retreat House. We added three TV sets in 2013 that do have the HDMI port; the port is located on the left side at the control board. Thank you for your 2013 reservation !
