SPECTACULAR VIEW OF LAKE GALENA

Galena Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Let us tell you about our lakeside home in the beautiful, rolling hills of Galena Territory, conveniently located near the Eagle Ridge Inn, the North Course Pro Shop and the General Store…

Calming views of Lake Galena sooth the soul.

In addition to the breathtaking scenery outside our windows, the inside of our home has been lovingly decorated with antiques, artwork and comfortable, attractive furnishings. Quite a few teddy bear friends will keep you company; hence we were named “Teddy Bear Place” by one of our young guests. The charming screened-in porch completes the peaceful atmosphere.

All you need to bring is yourself.

Our home has all that you will need for your vacation. The two bedrooms contain very comfortable queen size beds, one a pine four poster bed, the other a brass bed. In addition there is a very comfortable sleeper sofa in the living room that allows a maximum of six people to occupy the condo overnight. There are two full baths and all the linens are provided. The kitchen, overlooking the living and dining areas, is fully equipped with microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker and pretty much everything else you will need. In the living room area you are invited to enjoy the CD player, HD cable television and VCR, as well as an eclectic selection of CDs, tapes, movies and books. Finally, the cozy fireplace adds just one more element of warmth to the whole room.

My wife and I have been retired for over 10 years and the condo has been in the family since 1984. We discovered tnat the Lohenry ancestors settled in Galena approx in 1840 and we have unearthed many interesting facts about them since.

Charles Lohenry purchased this condo in 1995

The Galena Territory offers something for everyone. The rolling hills of the territory offer three internationally acclaimed golf courses, including the challenging eighteen hole course named “The General”, tennis courts, hiking and fitness trails, boating, excellent fishing, swimming, horseback riding and lessons and fine restaurants for casual or special dining. Nature lovers will especially enjoy the countless critters that are frequently spotted within the territory, including deer, wild turkeys and an occasional fox. Also, the quaint, historic town of Galena with its exquisite architecture, unique shops and excellent restaurants is only ten minutes away.

Find the best of both worlds during winter at the Territory. Even the winter months are enjoyable at Teddy Bear Place. There are so many activities to partake in, such as sledding, ice skating, hiking, ice-fishing and cross-country skiing. Downhill skiing is available at nearby Chestnut Mountain. Afterwards, you can retreat inside, cuddle up near the warm, cozy fireplace with a steaming cup of hot chocolate or relish in the luxury of an afternoon nap.

Grandma's birthday

We met my wife's daughter, son-in-law and 6 year old grand daughter to celebrate Grandma's birthday. After a shakey beginning,with the condition of the condo, the owners handled the problem in a prompt and thorough manner. Within a few hours the condo was perfect. It is a very upscale and homey condo, perfect for any type of outing. We were very impressed with the unit, its location and the concern of the owners.

We had a great time at the Teddy Bear Condo. Excellent winter views of the lake, wonderul accomodations with everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable time. 2 terrific bedrooms and baths and the condo is located perfectly near the lodge and General Store. This condo is a great value and is immaculate. (this was our second stay there) Chuck and Sue are great to work with and make the entire experience easy. Galena and the surrounding areas are gorgeous with plenty to do and excellent restaurants!

Best Thanksgiving in Years!

  • Stayed: Nov 2013
Our family spent the Thanksgiving holiday at Teddy Bear Place and it was the BEST Thanksgiving we've had in years! We were able to cook our whole dinner in the well stocked kitchen (we brought some of our food and purchased some locally). We relaxed, napped, played cards, shopped the quaint shops in town, watched football, used your Wi Fi to stay connected and even got in our workouts at the Owner's Club Fitness Center. And as advertised, the showers were the best! Better than at home. We will definitely be back, as this a short drive from the Chicago area, but once here we felt as if we had gotten away from all the chaos of daily life. We went home well rested and grateful for the experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We try hard to maintain the whimsical nature of our home away from home. It is always gratifying to know that someone else appreciates the opportunity to escape from the day-to-day and enjoy the unique getaway that is Teddybear Place.

Great place to experience "The Fall"

Although the weather could have been better the house was ideal. Well maintained, clean, good size, comfortable - and warm.....which was a relief as the temperatures dropped significantly while we were there. Well equipped and and great showers. The surrounding area is full of wildlife and lovely walks are easy to hand. The trees were just beautiful - all the rich colours of autumn. Galena is 10 miles away and picturesque - loads of restaurants and a small theatre (we saw a great magic show). Dubuque is 20 miles away and has a great museum of the Mississippi. The outdoor pools were closed (it was <15 deg C outside) but indoor pool was empty except for our children (too cold for us adults!). We would loved to have stayed longer and would definitely go back. You do need a car though - unless you like a long walk or cycle.
