The Galena Territory House Rental Photos and Description

Eagle's Nest House' We offer tiered rates, please inquire over 2 night stays.

We advertise our lowest rate - residential (16 people). Please inquire for rates of corporate, small events and small weddings. All wedding events require a tour prior to the rental contract quote offer and some smaller events may require a tour of the Eagle's Nest prior to an rental quote offer.

We offer the 'Eagle's Nest' more value in this extraordinary 12,000 square foot, 8 bedroom & 8 full baths, 14 King beds with 3 half baths vacation rental home located at the entrance of the Galena Territory in Northwest Illinois. There are many golf courses within & just outside the G.T.A. The “Eagle’s Nest” is the largest private rental vacation rental home in the area. It is handicap accessible on the main and lower levels and situated on 12 pristine wooded acres.

The Eagle’s Nest will surpass even the most sophisticated tastes; it was designed for small weddings, corporate events and meetings, golf, ski, groups, family reunions, multi family outings, wedding receptions and scrapbooking.

As you enter the main level great room, you immediately feel the spaciousness and luxury. The floor to ceiling windows provides natural lighting and panoramic views of the beauty in the surrounding woods. The centerpiece of the great room is the indigenous Dubuque limestone wood burning fireplace. It is flanked by warmth of fine leather furniture, natural hickory hardwood floors with large distinctive area rugs.

To the left is an intimate library nook. To the right are the twin dining tables seating for 16. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with a full open view. The granite countertops seating 12 and natural hickory cabinetry with stainless appliances is perfect for buffet style breakfast dinning.

Step out onto the main level furnished wood deck seating 20 with views and sounds of nature. Have a cookout on the gas grill or have a chef cook for you.

Each of the Eagle’s Nest (8) bedroom suites are themed Galena décor, with two bedrooms off the kitchen that are handicap accessible with one king bed in each bedroom suite. The other (6) bedroom suites have two king beds in each room. All (8) bedrooms have a luxurious jetted tub, two sinks, and walk-in custom designed tiled showers and nine foot ceilings. Two of the bedrooms have their own balcony with superb views.

There is plenty of room in this 4,000 sq. ft. lower level, we prefer not to exceed 60 people when set up for reception style dinning. When set up for leisure, there is plenty of entertainment with the 55” TV, pool table, poker table, air hockey, foosball, and ping-pong gaming tables with 27’ of wet bar. The southwest wall is wide open to the patio with (6) double sliding glass doors allowing the perfect view to the 12 acres of wooded scenery. This will welcome guests onto the seventy foot furnished patio seating 20 for alfresco dining with granite fire pit. In the center of the patio stands the towering 60’ stone fireplace.

You can also choose to walk on the path through the twelve pristine acres of woods or play volleyball on the sand court. At the end of your day enjoy the eight-person hot tub under cover in the gazebo located just off the patio.

During your stay at the “Eagle’s Nest” you will enjoy beautiful scenery, spacious affordable accommodations. It offers convenient access to the Galena area. This is one of the most exclusive and sought after luxury vacation rental accommodations in Illinois. It is truly a “must see/must stay”.

About The Owner

Hi-Welcome to our home. We're Bill and Sue. Several years ago our friends invited us to take a drive out to Galena with them. We didn’t know then about the rich history Galena boasts of, the beauty of the deep vistas and the tranquility of the woods and abundant wildlife, however these are the wonders that brought us back....year after year. Each visit introduced us to new discoveries in Northwest Illinois and educational interests and experiences for our children.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Galena

Galena is close enough yet far enough away from home; 3 hours drive from Chicago making it the perfect get-away place for a weekend trip. It is tucked away in Northwest Illinois and unlike the rest of the state of IL, Galena is hilly and picturesque. Downtown Galena is like stepping back in time with mid 19th century architecture aligning Main Street and beyond. Located 8 miles from town is our home, nestled at the galena Territory. It is peaceful, yet a fun place for a large groups or extended family gathering. It is a solid built home. We love it here and hope you will too.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy a game of pool or ping pong, challenge your friends to a game of poker, or relax in the outdoor private hot tub. Enjoy grilling with our 'never run out of gas' grill. Experience the natural surroundings; take a hike down the many trails in the Territory. Golf the 'General' or ski down the slopes of Chestnut Mountain Resort. Zip line 2.5 hour canopy tours just 1.5 miles away, Year-round activities make Galena the escape weekend destination

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Bill,



The person from our group that won the golf tournament in September is in charge of the outing for 2014. He has tentatively determined to host the tournament in Colorado in 2014.



Thank you for thinking of us, your home was one of the best venues we have had in the 30 years we have been doing this tournament.

Eagle's Nest EXCEEDED all Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

As the door swung open, I had a moment where I thought of "Goldilocks" standing in awe of the big house she was entering. I've hosted a weekend retreat for our directors for 6 years, and this was the ultimate destination. Wish I'd found it earlier. Our event is a Friday night till Sunday, and we don't leave the premises, so all the food is prepared and served on site. The kitchen fascilities are high end from silverward to dishes to coffee pots and steak knives, even the spice drawer is organized. The spacious first floor allowed us to cook, dine and have training sessions. We could sink back into luxurious leather couches for in depth conversations, or perch at the counter on bar stools for a snack and a chat. The next day, we chose to have our taco bar lunch downstairs in another complete kitchen dining area. One night we had a "bed time" segment, and the downstairs circular leather couch conversation pit was a perfect place to share stories. Part of our tradition is to intersperse training with games, and the multi level decks and hot tup and driveway and firepit were back drops for crazy games and fun pictures. The first director who came a little early said, "I don't know if I want to look at the bedrooms till you tell me which one is mine.." In the past her sleeping accomodations maybe hadn't alway been stellar. As she peeked through every single bedroom, her exclamations and comments got louder and more enthusiastic. "I don't care where you put me, this is AMAZING!" she stated. We crammed in so much in our weekend, and multiple times I'd pause when I'd notice one more detail, one more decorating nuance that cemented my opinion of the opulence of the decor. I appreciate staying in luxury, but that's not easy to do when you're housing many and keeping costs reasonable. This house far exceeded anything I imagined, and truly, the whole time I was there, I was thinking of what other group I could bring or recommend. Before leaving, we circle the room asking for individual takeaways, and preceding the motivation and teaching and training evaluations, every person commented on the house experience. A STELLAR EXPERIENCE

The Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

I am Real Estate Broker in Galena IL and I am very familiar with all of the rental properties in The Galena Territory and surrounding area. When it came time to organize my family reunion there was only one rental property that could meet our expectations. The Eagle’s Nest with its outstanding décor and massive spaces indoor and out, provided the greatest venue at a price that could not be matched by any other property. Do yourself a favor and visit the Eagle’s Nest to see firsthand this exceptional property.

Perfect Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We chose the Eagles Nest property as the site for our wedding ceremony and reception and it was the perfect choice! Our stay at the house was four nights over the long 4th of July weekend with the wedding being on the 3rd. The house is amazing, its enormous but still feels warm and cozy. The bedrooms and attached bathrooms are amazing as well, the entire bridal party stayed on the property and were thrilled with their accommodations. Everything in the house was immaculately clean and had a modern touch. In addition to the interior amenities there is a fire pit, tons of outdoor deck space, a sand volleyball court and a large hot tub in its own gazebo on the lower level. We utilized and enjoyed all of these features. It was especially nice for the bride and I to wind down with a soak in the hot tub along with the bridal party after the conclusion of the reception. The best part about having our event here was spending quality time with the bridal party and family all weekend long (breakfasts together, the rehearsal dinner etc. all under one roof.).

Our wedding was DIY-style and this location met all of our needs. The ceremony was held on the lawn near the volleyball court and the reception was a seated-style dinner on the lower level. Our guests loved the house and the family-barbecue feel that the house helped provide. Instead of being in a banquet hall room all night our guest were able to congregate at the various tables on the decks and patio after dinner to enjoy the beautiful weather. The lower level easily accommodated our guest list with room to spare, plus enough room for a sizable dance floor. The built in bar was large enough for two bar tenders to work comfortably side by side as well as accommodate our guests drink needs without there being a line. There is minimal parking at the house so guests needed to be bussed in, but we were still able to provide spaces for immediate family, DJ, caterer, bar tenders, etc with room to spare.

Bill and Sue were great to work with and helped us with every step of the process, including the recommendation of local vendors who provided us with side dishes, commercial sized barbeque grills, and transportation to the house from local hotels. It's difficult to encapsulate our experience in just 2000 words, but I can honestly say that we loved our time at the Eagles Nest property and it played a big role in providing us with a once in a lifetime wedding experience that was enjoyed by all!

Perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

This house is filled with first class accommodations including comfortable beds, spa-like bathrooms, multiple leather couches/chairs, huge game room, bar, two giant fridges, and a nice outdoor grill just to name a few. Everything is extremely clean and looks brand new. There is also tons of outdoor space to use. I highly recommend this house for large gatherings.
