Overview

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.

About Charles Lohenry

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

Why Charles Lohenry chose Galena

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Mini-Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

We hated to say good bye to "Teddy Bear Place" after our 3 night stay with our daughter and son-in-law and our two grandchildren. The condo is very well equipped and the view of the lake is spectacular as advertised. Access to the Owners' Club is a huge plus, as our 3 and 6 year old grandkids made full use of the awesome indoor pool. We enjoyed family time watching movies in the living room on the nice flat screen TV, while the electric fireplace glowed brightly. Beds are wonderfully comfy, the kitchen well-appointed and our hosts have assembled excellent reading material on Galena and surrounding environs. An excellent value!

Teddy Bear Place

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect rental experience for our family. We saw three eagles soaring over the lake right from the living room. The fold out sofa was actually so comfortable, our four girls fought over who would sleep on it. Walking distance from lodge and general store. We loved it and are already planning our next trip. Great value and great experience.

Highly recommended.

Annual Galena Vacation

  • 5 of 5

In a few words... Absolutely amazing. I was very impressed and surprised at the commendations available. Chuck and Sue, you have a wonderful home. Thank you for allowing us to use your condo over the weekend. We had a really great time and truly felt like we were at home. I also appreciate your service to veterans. Granted it being November we didn't take advantage of all the outdoor activities. However, we did a lot of sightseeing and took a long walk along the lake. The weather wasn't perfect but it was really nice. We hope to come back during the warmer months. We did our best to leave the condo in the same condition we found it. Again, THANK YOU so very much.
