If you prefer to cook during your visit, our kitchen will delight you. With recently upgraded amenities, and a recent appliance update in March 2013, you will love cooking here!

During warmer weather, grill a meal outside and enjoy our deck, screened porch and lower patio. And... as of July 2013, a fire pit!

Don't forget about Galena in the winter months! The hills create the perfect ski slopes and sledding hills. Ice skating is picture perfect. It really is a wonderful winter getaway!

Galena Country Cottage

This advertiser has been with HomeAway.com since 2013
Speaks english

We live in the Chicago suburbs and have enjoyed visiting Galena for many years. We came for our first anniversary when it was just the two of us, and now we bring our kids. We think Galena is a very special place.

Galena Country Cottage purchased this cottage in 2012

We have looked property in Galena for years, looking at lots of townhouses and single family homes. It has always been a 'dream' of ours to have our own place in this beautiful community. When we first visited this home, we were able to picture us here. Our kids love having plenty of space to do 'their' thing, we love the layout and ability to cater to group getaways. This home has been in the Eagle Ridge rental program for years. We are embarking on an exciting world of renting it ourselves, and we are excited to share it with you!

Although our home has been in a rental program for years and has been adequately equipped to rent out, our goal is for our renters to be comfortable here, to be 'wowed'. As new homeowners, we are making changes to 'wow' you. We have upgraded televisions throughout the house, mounting them to walls, connecting them to services like Netflix and Pandora. We like to be connected and have set up a dedicated WiFi service - that works all the time! Our kitchen has been upgraded (with more to come!) and the bed coverings have been improved.

We have stayed in enough rental homes to know what makes for a comfortable, memorable stay. We hope that you come stay at our 'Galena Country Cottage' to relax and make some memories!

We were very happy with our stay. We had 3 couples and one baby and all of us had our own bedroom and bathroom, plus an extra. The beds were very clean and comfortable, the house was wired with all the latest Apple technology and the kitchen had everything we needed for a great weekend. Amanda was wonderful accommodating us on late notice. The only thing I would improve is additional heat in the basement, we had a 4 month old and we couldn't get the basement warm enough to hang out there with the baby. Otherwise we were VERY happy and would definitely recommend it.

We had a great end of summer getaway to Galena Country Cottage. The house exceeded our expectations. From the exterior entry it doesn't look that big, but there was plenty of space. The kitchen was well equipped and easy to maneuver - plenty of counter space and everything you need (enough supplies to cook for a group). Both the upstairs and downstairs living areas were comfortable, and the house if fully outfitted with electronics - flat screens in both living areas and all 4 bedrooms. We appreciated the access to Netflix and Pandora and my daughter loved the XBox in the downstairs family room. One nice feature is that each of the 4 bedrooms is comparable in size (2 are en suites and the other 2 have easy access to a hall bath) - all queen beds with comfortable bedding. We've stayed in other VRBO properties with a couple of great bedrooms and some not so great - nice not to decide who gets stuck with the bad bedroom. The deck and screened porch were lovely as well. The backyard faces a wooded area and is very private. We chose the house because it was pet friendly, and took advantage of the nearby walking trails for long walks - a real vacation for pooches. We also used the pool at the Owners Club a couple of times which was great and not far away at all. This was our 1st visit to Galena and we also did the trolley tour downtown (interesting history), the alpine slide at Chestnut (2 nights - slide and view were fun, food was subpar), horseback riding at Shenandoah (very close) and crossed the river to ride the funicular in Dubuque (could have skipped). It was exactly the relaxing getaway our family needed at the end of the summer and we would absolutely return and recommend the property to others. Considering a return for winter fun.

The 'cottage' was plenty big enough for our whole family. We had a total of 12 including our 4 grandchildren. The downstairs rooms were wonderful when it was naptime and the rest of the family didn't need to worry about waking them. The four bathrooms may seem excessive, but for us it was perfect as we had four family groups. We got the most use out of the screen porch-with the mosquitos it was a real advantage. The location from the owners' club wasn't walking distance but it was close and the drive is lovely.

4th of July Reunion 2013

The Galena Territory is a beautiful area not too far from town. This 4 bdrm home was perfect for our gathering. Thoroughly enjoyed the porches for coffee and breakfast in the morning and games late afternoon with a glass of wine. The wild life were a joy and an added bonus. Location was very convenient to historic Galena where we enjoyed shopping, jewelry making class, wine tasting, lunch at Embe and the 4th of July parade and fireworks. The Dubuque casinos were close by and Chestnut Mtn sliding was fun and scenic. We also went to the Owners Club pool and Shenandoah rodeo. The owners are very pleasant to work with and go above and beyond to make your stay an enjoyable one. We would highly recommend this vacation home.

Galena has something to offer for everyone. Shopping, golfing, hiking, bicycling, fishing, skiing, sledding, leisure boating, horseback riding, and animal watching are popular among visitors. For the photography enthusiast, there is no better canvas to capture. History buffs will love how Galena takes you back in time. Or see a birds-eye view of Galena from a hot air balloon, another favorite tourist activity.

The hills of Galena are the perfect challenge for bicyclists. Every year, athletes flock to Jo Daviess County for 5Ks, 10ks, half marathons, duathlons and triathlons. The Owner's Club has a state of the art workout room, indoor and outdoor pool and indoor basketball court. Tennis and basketball courts are located throughout the Territory for additional outside sports enjoyment. Ask us for preferred routes for various length runs and cycle rides that would leave from our home - we would be happy to share them with you.

Galena loves to celebrate! Mardi Gras, Wine Lovers' Weekend, President Grant's Birthday, Girlfriend Getaway, Galena Country Fair, and Nouveau Weekend are all theme weekends. If you like parades, Galena is the place to be! St. Patrick's Day, Independence Day and Halloween are all holidays worthy of this red carpet treatment. And of course Christmas is when Galena truly sparkles and shines. Nothing is more perfect. Which festive weekend will bring you to Galena?

We all have to eat, and Galena offers some pretty amazing options! While we do enjoy cooking at home, we always enjoy a visit to a local eatery. This quaint, small town has a variety of dining choices.

Above all, we love sharing everything that Galena has with our kids. History, beauty, fun and most of all, family memories. We hope that you can share what you love most about Galena with someone soon!
