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! :)

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!!

Reviewer Comments:

I rented the Cogan Drive property for a 3 day stay with my family which included my two teenage children who I do not get to have under the same roof often. The house is absolutely beautiful, extremely functional, and honestly felt like home. I would highly recommend this house to anyone as 5 stars!!

Reviewer Comments:

This home was just right for our family of 6. It was very clean and had everything we needed for a long weekend. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies. I had brought paper towels, dishwashing soap,etc. but all that was provided. There were lots of beach towels and games in the hall closet too. Wifi worked great. Hot tub was wonderful. We sat on the back deck each morning and enjoyed the sounds and beautiful scenery. The one complaint would be the mattress in the main floor master. It definitely needs flipped or replaced. Also the rug under the dining room table is quite worn. With that said, we would stay again as this house is close to the owners club and in a great location. I would highly recommend it. Booking was easy and customer service was great. Thank you for a very enjoyable few days!!

This was a beautiful spacious house in Galena territory I couldn't have asked for anything better. We had 8 people and a lot of space to spare! We used the pool and had we planned better would have rented a boat it was only two miles away. I would definitely stay here again

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.
