About David

Rebecca and David built Coyote Cove as their vacation dream home in 2008 to share with their family and friends. A native of northern Illinois, Rebecca chose the exterior colors to echo the lovely natural hues of abundant summer cornfields, and even the charming lady bugs she played with as a child. Galena Territory's hills, valleys and natural beauty captivate David, who grew up deep in the Ozarks. His labor of love was to select an especially scenic site, and situate the home and all its windows to capture compelling views of the surrounding natural beauty, while offering guests perfect privacy.

David purchased this house in 2008

Why David chose Galena

From the beginning of their Coyote Cove project, Rebecca and David knew they would offer this home for rental to guests, whom they wanted to enjoy its relaxing amenities and beautiful setting. Special attention was given to every detail of design, furniture and furnishings to attend to every need and interest of guests. The immense harvest dining table, comfortable bedding, plush towels, large rooms, spacious seating, abundantly equipped kitchen, endearing artwork, charming furniture, expansive decks, breezy screened porch and open air, open sky hot tub all reflect this passionate attention to detail.

What makes this house unique

Unlike so many other vacation rental homes that cram too many bedrooms into too little space, on small lots with little privacy and minimal views, Coyote Cove offers guests spacious comfort, privacy and beauty for all their pursuits all day long. Large gathering rooms on each of three levels allow guests to be together or apart as they need or desire and to pursue a wide range of activities and pleasures. Three outdoor decks, and a separate screened porch, expand these gathering choices. The large yard allows for more vigorous activities, and even the spacious, paved driveway affords ample parking. This eases loading and unloading of your golf bags, fishing rods, skis or luggage -- as well as all the bags of whatever you may buy when you shop historic Galena's Main Street shops.

All we hoped for and more

  • 5 of 5

Coyote Cove proved to be the perfect location for our annual girls' weekend getaway. Having never rented a vacation home before, I took a chance based on the pictures and reviews, and neither disappointed. The attention to detail the homeowners have put into this home made our stay that much more enjoyable. The beautiful setting and the feeling of home made it so easy to let go of our daily lives and enjoy our time together.

The home is beautifully appointed with quality furnishings and linens. Every room exudes a peaceful vibe that matches the wooded setting. Time after time, someone in the group would comment on how quiet it was. The kitchen is amazing, and designed for multiple people to be working together preparing a meal. Everything you might possibly need is provided. And the beautiful harvest table easily accommodated our group with room to spare.

While we spent most of our time together in the open main floor, it was nice to have two other gathering areas where we could spend time getting caught up with each other. And the number and arrangement of bedrooms and bathrooms is fabulous, especially with 9 women under one roof!

David and Rebecca were so easy to work with, and even accommodated our request for early arrival and late departure. It was nice to be greeted with a tour of the home and a gift from the homeowners. My group is already planning to spend our 2016 girls' weekend at Coyote Cove, and at least one in our group plans to return with her family and some friends later this year.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay at Coyote Cove. The home was in excellent condition, the space is great for a lot of people - we were three families with kids ranging in age from 8-13. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed preparing meals and eating together at the large table. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and relax in the home. The hot tub and pool table were an added benefit and were enjoyed by all. The house was very clean and it was special to arrive to a welcome bag full of goodies. It is also important to say that David is incredibly easy to work with, and very helpful when planning and preparing for your trip. We highly recommend this home!

Coytoe Cove

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for our annual brothers and Sisters weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect! The house was immaculate and the special touch of being met personally and receiving a welcome bag and a bottle of wine made it really special. I would highly recommend this home.

That begins with very attentive housekeeping by our wonderful staff, and continues to the first moment of your arrival, when you are welcomed personally to our home. These vital details make great starts for your perfect vacation.

Five Star Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, comfy and just plain lovely! We were there for a ski weekend in Galena and after we saw what a fabulous home this was, decided to hunker down Friday and enjoy each others company in the comfort of this awesome home. Highly recommend for families with kids! We had a crew of 9 kids ranging in age from 4 to 12 and they LOVED the home that was large enough to gather and have dinner as a group and also allowed the kids(and the parents!) to break away and do their own thing. The open kitchen and living area was exceptional and a perfect fit for a large group! I knew we were in for a positive experience after speaking with the owner, who was genuinely concerned with ensuring we had a delightful stay!! The home was the centerpiece of a phenomenal weekend and we're grateful for having found Coyote Cove! We will be back!!!!

Owner's Response: We're flattered by your compliments to our home and our customer service, but most importantly, thrilled that you enjoyed our home so much that you wanted to use it so much as simply a place to visit and enjoy each other. That's what rental home vacationing should always offer, and we're very happy you found that at Coyote Cove. We designed Coyote Cove with two thoughts foremost in mind: what would guests need and enjoy, and what would make the happiest times for our family -- including all the many grandkids, nieces and nephews. So while it's no surprise that the children in your group enjoyed themselves so much, we are very pleased to know that we succeeded in our vision.

Fabulous Home and Impressive Attention to Detail

  • 5 of 5

My group and I were so very impressed by this beautiful home. The warm and cozy furnishings, view and amenities are beyond compare. We were so appreciative of the attention to detail and the owner's concern for guests having positive experience while staying in their home. I had read that the kitchen was very well stocked and that was the truth. Every time we said, "I wonder if there is a (fill in the blank)", we opened a drawer or cabinet and there it was! The open layout and 3 levels were perfect for both adults and children to have plenty of room to spread out. Coyote Cove was the perfect way to ring in the new year with family and friends!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased you found Coyote Cove to be such a wonderful setting for your holiday escape. We learned when we used to rent houses for our own use that real enjoyment came from the owner's careful attention to the details that guests need and expect. That has inspired how we try to manage Coyote Cove now, and it guided Rebecca's passion to equip her kitchen with every detail a vacationing cook might want. Thank you for your extraordinary compliments.

Couldn't Be More Impressed

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with this place and with the thoughtfulness of the owner. The unit was tastefully decorated and impeccably clean and the gift bag waiting for us in the kitchen as well as the souvenir pens and flashlights in each bedroom were great flourishes. The kitchen was stocked with every single item one could possibly need to prepare a meal and knowing next time we visit we will not need to schlepp our crockpot since there are already two is wonderful. We ran into one tiny issue with the hot tub and the owner answered our call immediately and within half an hour was out to look at and fix the problem. For the last two years I have managed several VRBO properties but this was my first time staying at one, I must say it made me rethink the guest experience and has since made me step up my game even more. It was a delight from the moment we check in to the moment we checked out and I would recommend this to anyone!
