My grandparents owned a farm very close to The Galena Territory where I spent every Sunday, as well as many weeks in the summer as a child. I have very fond memories of the area! Even though I live in Colorado, we come to Galena as often as we can. All of my family still lives throughout the tri-state area.

Joan Raymond purchased this house in 2013

We walked into this house and were impressed with every aspect of it, not to mention the incredible Burr oak tree in the back yard which was almost reason enough to buy the property. My family and I have rented houses through VRBO and Home Away all over the world and have become very picky about what we expect and we knew that this house had it!!

The house was thoughtfully designed for comfort, flow and entertaining. Every room has a great view. You feel like you are in a treehouse. The open feel of the home is accentuated with a different ceiling in each room. The center marble island in the kitchen evolves into the gathering place. The hickory floor, knotty alder woodwork, the warm glow of a fireplace and the sound of wildlife makes this a perfect destination getaway for corporations, family or friends.

WONDERFUL STAY!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent the long weekend at this house and absolutely loved it!! It's a beautiful house that's tucked away in a subdivision not too far from the main street in galena. We were so impressed with the Decore and the feel of the house! It was so spacious and there were different rooms that could be used for different activities for a wide range of ages and people! This was one of the nicest homes we have ever stayed in and enjoyed every minute of it. Joan was a gracious host and very easy to talk to and get in touch with. We hope to come stay there again soon!!

COUNTRY ELEGANCE

  • 5 of 5
We celebrated my husbands 60th birthday with friends and couldn't have been happier with the home. We were greeted by a note from the owners along with wine they had personally helped make. The home is impeccably decorated, every amenity you could possibly need is provided. It is truly just like being at home except you are in a beautiful secluded setting. We cannot wait to go back!

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
Luxurious is a good description! The house was everything expected and more! Beautifully decorated, comfortable beds and linens. Screened in porch was great, kitchen was well stocked with pretty much everything you could want. It was too cool to enjoy the hot tub but it was very nice. Joan was wonderful in helping us prepare a great surprise Bday celebration. It was perfect! Loved the Turkeys in the back yard each morning.

WONDERFUL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely beautiful house - we had a group of 10 people rent for a long weekend and loved our stay. The owner was courteous and very helpful, and the house itself was marvelous - huge space, excellent amenities, and very new. We enjoyed the house itself so much we almost never wanted to leave!
