Why Russ and Diane Cress chose The Galena Territory
Diane, my wife and I (Russ) bought our home in Galena in 2007 because I love to golf and she loves to shop! Galena is the perfect spot for the both of us!

We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was as promised, the rooms were very adequate and comfortable and the common spaces were great for our use. Would highly recommend to future renters.
Was under rehab
This was the second time we rented this property for a Sisters Weekend. There is more than adequate room for the 5 of us. We stayed 2 years ago and noticed that there was plenty of upkeep that needed to be done. We found out the Sunday before our weekend that the house was being resided. It definitely was! The basement had had a recent flood from all the heavy rains. I contacted the owner and discussed it all with them. Diane was very apologetic and offered to see if we could relocate but at that late date I opted to stay put.
If it was just up to me, we would rent it again. I understand that home maintenance is a process and it looks and sounds like the owners are finally able to get some of that done. They are fantastic owners to work with! Prompt with responses. Once they get done with construction it will be a beautiful property again.
We were in Galena for a wedding and didn't get to spend nearly enough time in this beautiful house! The owners were very responsive to questions I had before our trip. The house has all the dishes, pots, pans and anything you would need in the kitchen. They also have plenty of bath towels. This house provides several different options for outside gathering......upper outside deck, upper screened deck and a lower outside patio with a fire pit. If we are in the area in the future, we would love to rent this house again!
We had a great time.
We just returned from our 4 night stay at 1 Briarwood Trail. The home was very clean and well-stocked with all the necessities. The location of the home was conveniently located to the main road in the Galena Territory. We were able to use the pool at the Owners Club which was beautiful. The zero-depth pool for little children was key for our family. I would recommend this home to anyone with a large family.
Perfect set-up for a group
I coordinated a trip with a group of friends. The set-up of the main floor of the house was really ideal for a larger group of adults. We never felt like we were on top of one another, and the spaces were large enough that several of us could sit in the same room and catch-up. Several other people in our group commented on how beautiful the home was and how well it served our needs (which is always a relief when you're the trip planner!).
All of the bathrooms except one were down to less than a full roll of toilet paper when we arrived, but I made a quick call, and there was TP at our door very quickly.
Thanks for a great stay!
