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!!!

Wonderful Townhome

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful townhome for a 3-day, 2-night girls weekend. It was perfect for us! The townhome was extremely clean, beautifully decorated, and more than spacious enough for 4 girls. The photos don't do this place justice as it is bigger and more open in person. We utilized both beds and the pull out couch and all the mattresses were very comfortable. There was plenty of counter space in the bathrooms for everyone to get ready at the same time. We had trouble connecting to the wifi, but Pat and Tom were easily accessible and able to get us set up quickly. We spent most of our visit in Galena, but did make a quick trip to the Owner's Club and the pools and workout facility were very nice. Don't miss breakfast at Otto's! We would definitely stay again and had a fantastic trip!

Great Galena townhouse on South golf course

  • 5 of 5
Pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of this 2 bedroom townhouse nestled on the South golf course. Spent 4 days with our adult children and daughter in law and were quite comfortable. Large Master on top floor where you walk in front door. Downstairs is 2nd bedroom, kitchen and family room with pull out couch that could sleep 2. Only negative would be there's no privacy or noise buffer if that's where you sleep as it's next to the kitchen and community living space. If you don't mind that, place sleeps 6. TV's in both bedrooms and wifi available. Pat and Tom, the owners, are easily accessible for any questions and have thoughtfully stocked their home with everything you might need for your getaway. You can use their passes to the Owners Club if you want to swim, play tennis, or ping pong. We brought breakfast foods and things for lunch but did eat out the majority of meals; Don't miss lunch at Chef Ivos for smoked meats and BBQ . Dinner at Fried Green Tomatoes was a more upscale experience where we had their walleye, scallops, steak and veal parmesan, besides sampling 'fried green tomatoes'.
Our family loves adventure so we zip lined in Dubuque which was as good as the time we did it in St. Lucia. A good off-road adventure is at Chestnut Mountain zooming around on segways. Craft beer tour at the Galena Brewery was interesting and spent one night there sampling the cheap craft beers and music. Gobbies for designer pizzas and an out-door patio with reasonable prices. If you want good wine, music and an eclectic experience, check out the Grape Escape that is owned and operated by the colorful and irreverent Ms Kitty. Endless shopping in downtown Galena but after a few stores they all seemed the same. If you like to garden, stroll an hour at Lindmar Gardens. Bob, the elderly tour guide and owner is delightful with a great sense of humor. Unsure how long it'll be open to the public so be sure to visit soon;
Had done a wine tour last visit with Dennis from Dubuque tours. This time we did a couple of samplings at Masbach and Galena cellars right on Main Street. Love Traumen at Massbach. The crowds definitely pick up on the weekends so may want to consider coming midweek.

Relaxing vacation and golf

  • 4 of 5
The town home worked perfect for two couples which we found to be very clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and almost anything you needed in the kitchen was there. A couple restaurants we enjoyed during our stay and recommend were 111 Main in Galena and the Sunset Grille in Chestnut Mountain. The golf courses on property are very nice but you can save a lot of money if you wait until there twilight rates which are half the price and begin at 2 during the summer which is plenty of time to get a round in before dark and it was not busy at all. We would definitely stay in this town home during our next get away vacation and would recommend it to anyone else.

Nice stay

  • 5 of 5
We came to Galena for a short weekend for a wedding. The town home was perfect for the location. Very clean and comfortable. I liked the separate bedrooms. Only suggestion, if traveling with small children, bring a baby gate to keep them off the stairs.

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.
