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.

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

We are once again enjoying our stay at your conco. It is always decorated so nicely and it provides a relaxing environment in which we can get away from the stresses of life. Thank you for having us a repeat guest at the Teddy Bear Place.

Awesome getaway; Teddy Bear Place

  • 5 of 5
This was an extended weekend getaway. Packed full of activities. The Condo rental was very nice. Well stocked kitchen with pots pans, dishes, and a what I would assume are leftover consumables (food) that might help the next person that forgot their peanut butter, Pam Spray, salt and pepper, etc.

The beds and bedrooms were roomy, homey, and very inviting. Water pressure was great, and the whole place was clean and spacious for two couples.

My only complaint, is directed more towards the Condo association (I think). This Condo is below grade. Meaning from the parking area you go down one level. This is a woodsy area and obviously attracts bugs and spiders. But it appears no one sweeps the place and knocks down the webs that have significantly accumulated on and around the front door. The girls were a little hesitant, especially because the crickets and cricket carcasses were so plentiful.

Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful way to spend Labor Day weekend! The unit was very clean and well maintained plus had some nice amenities. It was a short drive into Galena, and at the end of the day, we were happy to come back to the peace and quiet of the Territory. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely come back.

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a girls weekend - my sister, mother and myself. We had a wonderful time. This condo is in an ideal location for walking to the pool, the General Store and Eagle Ridge Inn. The accommodations are spacious, comfortable and very homey. Chuck and Sue have thought of every detail to make your stay relaxing and seamless. The kitchen is fully equipped, the bathrooms immaculate and you will find detailed instructions for the TVs, DVDs and Wi-Fi.

Very Pleased

  • 4 of 5
I went to this condo with my Mom and four sisters. We stayed for the weekend. We were very pleased. We thought the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare our meals. There were sheets, blankets, pillows, towels, including in the kitchen, etc. We loved eating our meals and playing games (which we found at the condo) on the screened-in porch. We thought the owners did an excellent job of anticipating and supplying what we needed. They left excellent direction and detail on how to use the condo. It was a wonderful weekend.

Very positive experience.... well thought out condo rental...everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5
We loved the cleanliness!!, preparation (great directions as to the free, fast WIFI, how to operate the television with hundreds of channels and movies, etc.

Owners are very kind and friendly.

We stayed there with some relatives who we hadnt seen in ages.... so much better than staying at a hotel as we could visit in the living room and got to spend much more time together.

Im sure you know how awesome Galena and Eagle Ridge resort are, so I wont add that here.

we would highly recommend this to friends and relatives and hope to stay there again.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a weekend trip to Galena with our three small children. Teddy Bear Place is a very nice, comfortable home that was ideal for our family. We had access to all of the facilities in Eagle Ridge - including the big new swimming pool/owner's facilities and a smaller pool that is a short walk from the condo. It was a really nice weekend getaway with the kids and Teddy Bear Place made the trip!
