Tom and I have traveled throughout the united states and abroad, we both agree, there is no place like our Galena home! We began coming up to this area approximately (5) years ago and we have always been drawn or ended up in the Territories, as the beauty is truly remarkable. We want to share this beauty and cozy feeling with anyone who is looking for a 'stress free' get away. Tom and I are still currently working and we use Oak Glen 12 as our 'retreat' from the everyday hustle/bustle. Enjoy! Tom & Pat Ellison, Orland park, il.

owner/property manager purchased this townhome in 2011

For the past (5) years, Tom and I have been traveling to this area and staying with relatives at nearby lakes. When we came across the 'Galena Territories', we fell in love all over again. Not to mention, Tom is an avid golfer and this is the place for that! I love the scenery and the SPA it's awesome!! We can replenish our minds and just relax. I cannot say enough of the beauty and charm, this is why we had to become owners.

Our unit (OG-12) is very well kept, because we love it up here! You will find warmth, charm and by the way we have great neighbors! Our main goal is to make sure that you enjoy this unit as much as we do. Our children and grandchildren visit and they love the unit along with all of the other amenities...swimming etc., we have a great time and hope you will as well!!!

GREAT STAY, GOOD VALUE

  • 5 of 5
Nice, clean and comfortable unit. Close to the town of Galena, and we were able to enjoy the restaurants, etc.. The unit itself was very nice. The front door opened up to the top floor with a master BR, and you had to go downstairs to the main living space (kitchen, LR, 2nd BR) - kind of the opposite of a traditional floor plan, but we quickly got used to it and it suited our needs just fine.

WONDERFUL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We have had a lovely week here. The condo is beautiful, clean, quiet, and leaves nothing on our wish list. We especially loved One Eleven in Galena for dinner. It was amazing. Pizza at Paisanos at Eagle Ridge Lodge is some of the best we have ever had (and we know our pizza!) Thank you for sharing your lovely condo with us.

CELEBRATING 50 WITH 5 SISTERS

  • 4 of 5
The property was in a lovely location, so serene and peaceful. The home was very clean and well stocked. We are not familiar with the area, and wish there was a comment book from previous guests or things to do, places to eat, included in the guest book that was there. Hot water was an issue for 5 people to shower one after the other. All that aside, we had a wonderful time and would rent from these owners again.

GREAT COUPLES GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
I loved the condo, the location. The condo has everything you need and was very clean. Full kitchen, clean bathroom and romantic vibe. The owners pool was nice and clean and the game room was fun as well. The owners were great with leaving info and book on nearby places. We went horseback riding and had blast and the artisan shops are great. I will be coming back and telling more people on the great find.

LOVED THIS PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five selected this property for a cozy Thanksgiving weekend, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! The property is clean and well maintained, tastefully decorated, with very comfortable beds and furnishings. The property has the layout of a loft, with a vaulted ceiling and two large bedrooms on separate levels. This gives an open, spacious feel and allows for privacy. The kitchen was well equipped with modern appliances and good countertop space for meal preparation. WiFi and Owners Club access was also included, along with helpful instructions from the owners. The property was perfect for our family of five in that we each had enough space without feeling confined, but still could enjoy being together in a cozy atmosphere. We thought that the price was very reasonable and was excellent value for the space and amenities. We had chosen this property based on previous guest reviews, and less from the VRBO photo profile, as the property is nicer than the photos would suggest. The owners were very helpful and responsive. Thank you for your kind hospitality, Pat and Tom - we hope to return soon to your lovely town home!
