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 tu( DURING THE WARM WEATHER MONTHS), 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.

This is my 4th year renting Comfort House. The house is very comfortable for my family with enough bedrooms and private baths. The house is very clean and comfortable as well as being well stocked for whatever cooking you may want to do. My 6 year old and 3 year old grandsons call this house " Grandma's Galena House " and were very unhappy to leave! They feel completely at home. I hope to rent again next summer as it has become a family tradition. I highly recommend Comfort House for a great stay in the Galena area!

Excellent Ladies Get Away Location!

  • 5 of 5

The women in my family get together every year for a long weekend without the guys or kids! This is one of the best locations we have stayed at. The house was clean and comfortable, the hot tub was a great bonus and we all had room to sleep comfortably! We would definitely stay here again if we are in Galena for another get away!

Reunion with Friends

  • 5 of 5

Each year, we meet friends in Galena as part of a reunion tradition that has continued for 30+ years. We have rented many homes in The Territory, and the Comfort House was the most comfortable, well organized and furnished home we've enjoyed. The house is beautifully decorated with wonderful amenities - and so comfortable, we felt completely at home. The outdoor hot tub is a bonus. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. We plan to return and only offer one suggestion - some flexibility in check-in and check-out times without incurring additional charges as we've experienced with other homes in The Territory.

Family Get-Together

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for the holiday weekend, as we had done last year. We came back because our first experience was so positive. Everything was great again: huge deck, hot tub, very very clean, well appointed home with a great screened porch we used a lot. Fully equipped kitchen, with coffee! You won't go wrong with this house.

Excellent Vacation House in Galena

  • 5 of 5

This house was clean, organized, and decorated beautifully. The layout was perfect with it's three bedrooms, spacious deck, and strategically placed huge hot tub. We had two other couples with us on our vacation weekend and it couldn't have worked out better. I have to add that the beds were super comfortable!! We plan to stay here again next year and will even extend our stay since it was so nice.

We even forgot a few items after we left and the owner was extremely accommodating on arranging for us to get them back. Could not have asked for a better experience.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I honeymooned at the Comfort House for a week in late May. It was a wonderful experience. House was clean, organized, and a perfect fit for what we needed. We loved the location and the seclusion of the property and hot tub was perfect. We're looking forward to staying there again in the future.
