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 2007

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 at the galena Territory. It is peaceful, yet a fun place for a large groups 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. Enjoy grilling with our 'never run out of gas' grill. 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

Thank you Bill,



The person from our group that won the golf tournament in September is in charge of the outing for 2014. He has tentatively determined to host the tournament in Colorado in 2014.



Thank you for thinking of us, your home was one of the best venues we have had in the 30 years we have been doing this tournament.

Exceeding Expectations

  • 5 of 5
This property is as good as you can get from a rental home. The owners have great pride in their property. You'll find it extremely clean and everything works; which is extremely rare for homes listed on VRBO. Each bedroom provides all of the options that you would expect from a property in this price range. The lower level entertainment center is terrific for all ages. We had our entire family in for the holiday and not a single complaint, just compliment after compliment.

Perfect Wedding

  • 5 of 5
If you are planning a wedding for 50-75 people... book The Eagle's Nest NOW. The spacious common areas, beautiful custom sleeping / bath quarters, and unbelievable landscape allowed for an incredible experience; not only for my wife and I, but also for all of our family and friends.

Not only were we lucky enough to have all of our immediate family join us for this event, The Eagle's Nest allowed enough rooms for all of them to stay with us the entire weekend. There was plenty of room for us to spread out, the rooms were quiet enough for those who needed to get away, and the kids had plenty to do around the property with the game room downstairs and several trails to explore.

The great room gave us a comfortable and beautiful setting for our ceremony with 65+ guests. Then we were able to invite everyone right down the stairs to the lower level for cocktails and our reception. We lucked out with the weather which allowed people to also enjoy the extensive patio and decks. What an incredible setting! The entire place is beautiful and so accommodating for a gathering such as ours.

The owners were so helpful and assisted us with any needs or question. I would definitely recommend to anyone!

Beautiful Location and Amenities

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed Eagle's Nest this weekend as we held our 28th annual family gathering. It's a gorgeous facility with plenty of amenities for family gatherings, business gatherings, or a relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

We really enjoyed the beautiful setting but wished we had more time to spend taking in all the events Galena has to offer as well as the special provisions at Eagle's Nest. The pre-arrangements were well communicated and everything was as stated in the rental offering.

Taking advantage of the weekend, we had 24 people enjoy family members ranging in age from <1 year old to our family matriarch who'd rather not allow me to state her age. We enjoyed the recreational provisions, the setting, nature walks, and time away in the Galena area.

Hopefully our family will be able to enjoy Eagle's Nest in the future.

Our Most Amazing Stay...

  • 5 of 5
I have never opened a door before and have been so excited! Really!! This place is a modern mansion in Galena's Eagle Territory. We had 7 couples with kids and it was a blast to see how much fun everyone had! The adults enjoy that every bedroom has 2 king beds and private bathroom, the massive modern kitchen and the basement bar! The kids enjoy running around in a house that seems more like a hotel of their own! The place was extremely clean and everything was very professional. This place books up on popular weekends, but every single person in our group wanted to schedule another visit the following year. Thanks to the owners of this amazing place! If it is sunny and warm they have tons of activities ready for you outside and the biggest deck I have ever seen ;) ... if it does rain this house has so much space and toys in it that you wouldn't care! I have stayed in Galena a few times before and there is no house that compares, nothing even close! I hope your group has as much fun as ours!

Fabulous property and attentive owner

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were married at the Eagle's Nest last weekend and everything was perfect! We arrived in Galena a few hours before check in and Bill, the owner, let us store our belongings at the house so we could load up our cars with groceries. He called me when the house was ready 30 minutes before check in! Both of our immediate families (and their spouses) stayed at the house with us. All of the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Bill came by on Friday morning to help us arrange furniture for the reception and he came by again on Saturday morning to help us set up for the ceremony on the main floor. Bill answered all of our emails promptly in the months leading up to our stay. He also dropped by to bring ice to us when we were running low! I can't say enough about how wonderful Bill and the Eagle's Nest are. It was the perfect stay and I highly recommend it. It was the ideal location for us and our 70 person wedding.

12 others and myself stayed here one week ago for a retreat and I must say that it's truly impressive. We had a marvelous time and look forward to staying here for our 2015 retreat. I have no complaints the place is remarkable. If I could give a 10 star rating I would. Bill was very helpful.
