About Doug Coup
We love our home away from home. Sometimes we never leave the house when we're there. Spending time with family and friends and enjoying the scenery makes this home very special to us. We invite you to experience something special, take the time and enjoy a stay at our home...reCoup. During the renovation of our home, we stayed at our rental properties around the area. We took that into consideration when we decided to rent our property. We believe our house is very inviting and most guests are surprised how nice the house is, both the furnishings and the accommodations. We know you are taking the time and spending money on a getaway, our house is a wonderful place to stay. The holidays are especially unique at our home.
Doug Coup purchased this House in 2005
Why Doug Coup chose Galena
We spent some time biking and golfing at Eagle Ridge. We just loved it. When our close friends invited us to spend a weekend at their house we were sold! The location is what sold us. See for yourself. Book a weekend with us. Check out Galena.org for an array of activities to suit all.
What makes this House unique
The house is private. At night it is so dark you can see just the stars. It's quiet too! Just the sounds of nature. The mornings are beautiful as well. We watch the deer come through the yard and then the kids begin to bird watch. There is a nice trail right off the back yard. Experience the beauty within the territory. Enjoy a bike ride, hike or horse back ride. Families enjoy the stress free walks around the area. Fall is the perfect time to travel into Galena. The trip and surrounding area is just beautiful with all of the color changes as well as a multitude of events that start in September. Hot Air Balloon rides are a huge hit!!! Better make reservations. Wine Tasting is at it's peak at this time too. Come relax and enjoy a long weekend, you won't regret it. With winter just around the corner, stay warm right beside the fire place. Skiing at Chestnut Mountain is just 15 miles from the house. Once the snow falls, kids can enjoy sledding and snow boarding right on the property. Relax every night in the hot tub while taking in the beautiful winter view! Our house might cost a bit more per night, but it is definitely worth it. You'll enjoy everything about the house. November Galena's Nouveau Wine Weekend. Explore 19th century history, shop main streets, paddle a river and challenge your golf game.

Very nice spacious home
Great house, nice quiet location. Only complaint was we needed to use extra sheets, but they were stained and ripped. It was pretty gross and unexpected. Sheets with rips/holes and blood stained is not acceptable. Everything else about the house was great.
Great for a girl's weekend
We had a great stay at the house. The house is comfortable with plenty of space to stretch out with a big group. The views are fantastic, the kitchen was really nice, and we enjoyed the outdoor space. Thanks for a great weekend!
Unfortunately the unit looked like it had not been cleaned for sometime. Cobwebs and dead bugs were all over the inside of the house, as well as dangerous parsnip growing rampant outside.
One bathroom was unusable due to a broken toilet that the handyman seemed to know about, and left without fixing.
Location was great, just very disappointed in the conditions of the house for that price
The home is professionally cleaned after each guest. We are in the country and there are flys and with the tall ceilings and glass during the week they die. We have moved to a pre-check in inspection.
In regard to the toilet is was advised by me by the handyman that he inspected the toilet and that the filler tube was bumped off when the guest removed the top after having difficulty pushing lever. That knocked off the filler tube, he simply re attached the tube. That is why it appears he quickly left. We were attentive to the problem at 8:30 on a Friday night.
We are always looking to make to improve our guest stay and our property.
As for exterior grounds, the property is 2 acres, about 3/4 of acre is mowed, rest is left natural as is most of the Galena Territory.
Very cozy,well appointed property.
Glad you enjoyed your stay. Summer is always fun with the pools and Golf.
Come back again.
We had a fantastic stay in this home! The place was beautiful, and it was very private and away from everything! Perfect ten minute drive to the Galena shops. We would definitely stay here again!
Very nice house good location beware of angry garbage man
Everything was very nice, big house, beautiful views, good location for Galena sights. Owner has instructions (and warnings/threats) for every feature of the House. One, is that you must take your own garbage with you when you leave. After a nice vacation who doesn’t want to pack their garbage in their car and drive an extra 40 min round trip to drop it off? After checking out of the house and of course leaving the transponders (otherwise being charged for taking one) I arrive at garbage facility. Well apparently you need a transponder to get past the Fort Knox style trash drop. A man approaches my car and I kindly explain the situation. But unfortunately he is a garbage man on a power trip who refused to let me drop the garbage stinking up my car. After I say I feel he’s being too strict and kinda ridiculous he threatens to fight me! Shocked I back out and call the security service who back the angry garbage man. Galena residents are far from happy courteous people. My family and I won’t be back. In retrospect I would’ve left the garbage at the house. Why am I even paying a cleaning fee?? In the end, there is good and bad. Beware angry Galena garbage men..
I am sorry your encounter with a local garbage man was not pleasant.
Yes, there is not garbage service in the area, this is the country. If left at the house, the local animals will spread it all over the yard. there for we ask you drop off at garbage station, as all other rental houses do. They put the security tag entrance there so locals and contractors do not dump there.
The house you liked. Local garbage man not so much... Sorry.
