About Joan Raymond

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

Why Joan Raymond chose Galena

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!!

What makes this house unique

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.

Gorgeous Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for my fiance's 30th birthday, and it was absolutely perfect! We brought along 8 friends, and had more than enough space for everyone!! The guys LOVED the pool table and foosball table, and the ladies thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor jacquzzi! Chesnut mountain is very close, as well as downtown Galena. Plenty of things to do for everyone. Thank you for a wonderful weekend, we hope to be back soon!!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful. We took the kids skiing at Chestnut Mountain over President's Day weekend and we rented this home with two other families. Lots of space to spread out and cook and have nice meals, play games, watch movies. It was a great family weekend. Highly recommended.

Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very responsive and easy to deal with, both in booking and planning your trip. The house is simply beautiful and perfect for a group stay. The basement has everything you need to relax and enjoy your time in the house. I would strongly encourage anyone to book this home and we hope to come back again. Perfect house!

Absolute PERFECT house for group vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was AMAZING - the house was newly built and it was obvious the owners spared no expense in the décor and upgrades. Every bedroom was beautiful and amenities such as piped in speakers in main rooms, Heated bathroom floors in master bathroom, Plush carpeting, large rooms etc made this house the perfect refuge for our weekend skiing vacation. After a grueling day on the slopes we were able to come back to the house cook a family dinner and soak in the Jacuzzi outside. It really was an enjoyable stay. I will no longer stay anywhere else in the area - if a suggested weekend I want is booked I will just move my trip to a free weekend to make sure I stay here. Working w/ Joan was also seamless -- just overall a perfect experience.

Wonderful wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter just got married in Galena on 10/25/14 and we stayed at the home pre and post wedding. It was exactly what we needed, the space and views of that tree in the backyard was beautiful! We couldn't have asked for anything more and I can't wait to show some pictures of the bride getting ready. Thank you for a great and memorable home! I think we will be back next year around the same time because the tree color was gorgeous.
