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. 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 Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our growing family rented the Eagle's Nest for our annual family weekend. This was an amazing location to be at together. The sleeping accommodations were plentiful and comfortable! The main floor openness allowed for all of us to be together in a very comfortable fashion! The entertainment area in the basement is outstanding for little and big kids alike! We had everything we needed to be together as a family! Our family said it was the best family weekend we have had in 20+ years of coming to Galena and attributed it to the wonderful stay we had at the Eagle's Nest.

Weekend stay at Eagle's Nest

  • 5 of 5

We rented Eagle's Nest for a group getaway and it was amazing! Our group has rented Eagle's Nest before and this trip was no different! The accommodations are immaculate! With ping pong, a pool table, foosball, a air hockey table and large screen TV located in the basement, there was plenty things to keep everyone happy! The kitchen area is great, stocked with all the pots, pans, dishes and utensils you will ever need! A large fireplace in the main room (as well as in the lower level, with plenty of firewood outside) made the ambiance even more lovely! All of the bedrooms are equally great as well. Plenty of towels and king size beds (some rooms have two beds) along with a large walk in shower and jetted tub in all of the bedrooms makes it more memorable! Bill with the Management company was attentive and friendly and great to work with. Anything that was needed he was available to make sure our stay was smooth as silk! We are DEFINATLY going to stay at Eagle's Nest again in the near future, and look forward to working with Bill again for our stay!

Excellent winter weekend getaway! !

  • 5 of 5

Our family skiing trip/reunion was so wonderful because of our stay here. The place was so spacious and big enough to accommodate us yet still warm and cozy. We hope to come to this getaway every year!

Beautiful home with Fantastic Game Room

  • 5 of 5

We visit Galena from Chicago around 4 times per year and usually stay in the Eagle Ridge area. We travel with our 2 boys and usually some of their friends. We will be staying at Eagle's Nest again for sure! This house is ideal for families with kids; especially middle school and high school because of the outstanding game room that has a pool table, ping pong, foos ball, air hockey, etc. with large screen TV to watch sports. Bedrooms and bathroom suites are all immaculate and secluded/private. The Jacuzzi is also great. The location is perfect to enjoy hiking and get into the town for the adults.

Romantic Wedding at Eagles Nest - affordable destination wedding

  • 5 of 5

We hosted 82 guests for an intimate weekend celebration of our wedding. This venue could not have been more perfect and we used every amenity they offered. Friday golf outing followed by rehearsal dinner at the house for 34; Saturday wedding on the main floor with a plated dinner for 82 and dancing on the lower level; a casual Sunday "survivors" brunch at the house for 40. The house is centrally located, close to hotels for guests and easy to find. In nice weather it is totally handicap accessible - full access may be an issue in snow. Our goal was to have a very family orientated weekend as we didn't want the big day to come and go quickly. This venue was excellent. It's high end finishes complemented the formality of the event but also felt warm and homey. Each bedroom has a different theme and very comfortable beds with nice linens and huge bathrooms with spa tubs. The kitchen/bar were well stocked with plates, glass ware, multiple coffee makers, several refrigerators etc. The unique great room on the main floor was an amazing venue for the ceremony. We had guests gather around us, some were up in the balconies, including the bagpiper, and it felt so warm. Simple roses and a cross on the mantle provided just enough decor. Down stairs we easily sat 82 with plenty of room for a dj and dance floor. The outside decks were great and added to the flow of the night. We even set up bean bag games out side, all the kids loved the games, bonfire, and volley ball court. We also very much enjoyed the hot tub and gazebo.

The owners Bill and Sue were extremely accommodating, answering questions, providing local referrals and assisting with set up suggestions. They are extremely professional and I would absolutely work with them again. They went out of their way to accommodate the various vendors and made sure trash was removed each day. They clearly take great pride in their property and it shows!

We used the nice basic white tables and chairs available for rent on site and saved a bundle. We had to assist with set up which took about 45 minutes and went very smoothly as Bill accommodated our schedule.

I absolutely would host another event here and can't wait for the opportunity. Our guests are still talking about it and looking for reasons to have their events there. We can't say thank you enough to Bill and Sue for helping us plan the most wonderful weekend we've ever had. It was absolutely perfect!

Beautiful home for large family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We have spent several years celebrating our Christmas at the Eagle's Nest and we love it. It is a large home equipped with absolutely everything you would ever need. It is beautifully decorated for the holiday season and the owners keep it spotless with high end furnishings. We have a large family and this amazing home accommodates all of us. There is no better place than the Eagle's Nest. I highly recommend it.
