Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much for following up. We had a great time in Galena and enjoyed our stay at Cogan house. You've made the entire process from beginning to end a very smooth process. Your emails were great in detailing everything - directions, entry and close out. The home was very, very clean as well. We loved the hot tub and the pool table was a big hit. The area is a beautiful place to stay and we enjoyed Cogan house - just wish we would have come a few weeks earlier to enjoy the color! :)

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at the Cogan House Sept. 15 to 18. The house was beautiful and was just as described. A fully equipped kitchen, full complement of televisions, beautiful porch with peaceful view of countryside, amazing hot tub, comfortable beds and plenty of bathrooms for 6 women. The house has two full refridgerators, very helpful for big groups. You will also enjoy a full compliment of board games, cards, movies and pool table. The weather was warm enough to use the pool at the club house. Absolutely beautiful club house. Definitely take advantage of this amenity during your stay. The Cogan house is an excellent find for a weekend or long term stay. (The 4 review under maintenance was due to a very loose faucet in the kitchen. It did not effect our stay, just wanted to let the owners know.)

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we were very pleased with the rental house. The furniture and beds were comfortable and the house was clean. The kitchen sink faucet rotates on its axis, and you could definitely invest in some new pillows and bath towels. The location was perfect, and we especially enjoyed the back porch--except during the 7 p.m. mowing, which was loud and disruptive!

Owner's Response: This is our very popular Cogan home and due to that nature we cannot always avoid the necessary maintenance that goes along with the home. The good news is that they are typically on the property and off again very quickly. The Cogan Valley location is gorgeous and it just a mile from the GTA Owners Club with pools and fitness center. We will definitely take your advice and upgrade the items mentioned. The sink has already been repaired (loose bolt underneath, quickly tightened and good as new). We know you will love the home and it's great proximity of everything in the Galena Territory!

Reviewer Comments:

Four of us from midstate Illinois were meeting friends from northern Wisconsin for a couple of nights and one of us found this house. We enjoyed our time here very much; the house has many amenities that enhanced our stay, and we especially loved the quiet location. We would definitely return to this area again if the circumstances arise. (I would give it all 5 stars except that they need luggage racks in each bedroom; there is not always room to place suitcases.)

Owner's Response: Cogan is a great home with great amenities. The view is phenomenal and the location to the Owners Club can't be beat. We do have a check in time of 4p.m. Sometimes we can get guests in a little earlier and sometimes it is right at 4 and you may encounter housekeeping as you check in. We want to guarantee a completely clean home that will meet your expectations, not do a rush job that might just be ok. The keys are actually really easy. We give you a 4 digit code and you just need to enter it into the keybox, the keys are located inside of it - that is it!

Comfortable, roomy, and full of amenities! We had a great stay and enjoyed the views, the use of the pool table and hot tub, and easy access to the village of Galena and many other sites in the area. Will stay again! Thanks!

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family loved it! The kitchen was awesome, they even had a crock pot! It was great! Games to play, movies to watch and lots of room for 6 adults! The internet is a little spotty, but that was not a problem... sometimes you need to tune out the world and tune into your family!!

This three bedroom home is located in the heart of the picturesque 6800-acre Galena Territory, a pristine area of abundant wildlife and rolling hills that stands apart from the normally flat landscape of Illinois. Within walking distance from the home is the Territory Owners Club facility, with a newly updated outdoor pool, game room, fitness center, basketball court, tennis courts and children's playground. Just a minute down the road our guests can fish or boat on the 220-acre private Lake Galena. Also just minutes from the home in the Galena Territory lies the Ridge Golf Club and Spa, boasting 63 holes of championship golf and a world class spa facility. The home borders one of the Territory's 40 miles of hiking trails, a great way to conveniently experience the beauty of the Territory up close. Just a short ride down Route 20 lies the historic city of Galena, a great destination for shopping and eating.

NEW in 2012 Indoor and Outdoor Pools located within walking distance of the home. Less than a mile is the Galena Territory Owner's Club that houses these amenities and many more. During the summer there is a snack counter, tennis courts and farmer's markets to be enjoyed. Very close to Lake Galena and the marina, we love to rent a pontoon and cruise the lake by the waterfall.
