Why SANDRA GORDON chose Galena

I had never been to The Galena Territory until my life long friends purchased their home. They invited me to visit at which point I fell in love with the wooded rolling acres and historical Galena. There is so much captured beauty in those 6,800 acres. The location is a short easy drive from Chicago. Every time I get in my car and head to Galena my heart lightens, so many fond memories with friends. The Galena Territory is a beautiful place to relax, unwind, and rejuvenate. My chosen special getaway!

What makes this house unique

I absolutely love being at my home in Galena. My home is located near the end of the road allowing for quiet peaceful surroundings. I enjoy the closeness to nature, watching wildlife leisurely stroll though the property, hearing cows mooing in the distance. The back upper deck provides open ski to hear as well as view the hot air balloons in flight, they pass near the home. As the stillness of evening arrives I look forward to relaxing in the hot tub (open year around located under a gazebo); star gazing (the stars are so bright),and on cooler evenings I enjoy gathering wood to start a fire in the outside fire pit to roast marsh mellows and make smores. There are so many events, activities, walking trails, etc. that I will never be able to do it all. I hope you choose to stay and play in my home, and as I do each and every time, leave looking forward to your return trip to 15 Washburne Lane in The Galena Territory.

beautiful clean home

  • 4 of 5

We have rented several homes in the Galena Territory but this home was the cleanest and most beautifully decorated home that we have rented. Everything was perfect in this beautiful home. The hot tub was amazing and enjoyed the fire pit every night we were there. There was a wonderful porch that wrapped around the back of the house.

My only complaint was that the owner was not flexible with check in\check out time. We arrived 10 minutes early and were not able to get into the home. The access code must be placed on a timer because we were able to enter exactly at 4:00. Also asked for a 1 hour late check out and were told no. Checked the calendar and no one was scheduled to check in on the day we left. We have rented several homes in the past and were always able to check in a little early and stay a little late if the home was available.

This is the only reason why I rated the home at a 4 instead of a 5. It is a beautiful home.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Comfort House more than met our expectations. It is so beautifully decorated and such an inviting home. The beds were so comfortable I didn't want to get up in the morning. The blackout curtains were definitely a plus. We loved the fire pit and most of all the hot tub. The kitchen had everything we needed. I loved sitting in the screened in porch in the morning listening to all the birds. We will definitely be back.

Sandra was wonderful to work with and thanks again for opening up your beautiful home to us.

Clean and comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with college friends we hadn't seen for years. The home was very clean and furnished with everything we needed. Galena was just a few minutes away if we wanted a restaurant or shopping, but really, why leave??

Luxury Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful home away from home vacation stay for all 7 of us.

Comfortable and clean and luxurious for a great mid-week price! We all enjoyed it thoroughly and if we are in the area will most certainly return to this home. The owner is gracious, friendly and very helpful! Only wish we could have stayed longer! The kitchen is one of the very best equipped with dishes and every pot or pan and utensil you could need of any house we have ever stayed in. And super organized. We were pleasantly surprised after some other stays in cabins and houses. Definitely a great Vacation spot!

Excellent Get Away Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Comfort House for a small family get together and had a blast. The communication with Sandra was always prompt and easy. The house itself was spacious with three good sized bedrooms and three baths. The house was clean and was stocked with most cooking items that you might need. We felt at home and had a blast. The hot tub was a great bonus and was fun to relax in at night before we went to bed. We also took advantage of the fire pit and used the grill one night for supper as well. We are already talking about going back again next summer for a mid week get away.
