We enjoyed all the rooms/levels this home had to offer. Many spots to catch a quiet moment and large open spaces to enjoy with our group. Great pool table and hot tub and we are already planning our next visit.

Reviewer Comments:

This home was ideal for our group. Lovely location and comfortable rooms. So well outfitted we felt right at home immediately. Just loved the arrangement of rooms with little getaway areas and of course, the proximity to Galena town area was perfect. Couldn't look for a better place and are asking to rent it again next year.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was perfect for what we needed. I loved that each room had a private bathroom. It was clean and comfortable. The only complaint I would have would be that the jacuzzi tubs need to be cleaned/maintained better. Otherwise, I have no complaints.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great 50th Anniversary celebration stay for my in-laws at this house. We had enough beds and plenty of bathrooms, our children didn't want to leave! A few small issues we had: 1. There weren't enough of the promised 14 cards to use at the pool, there were only 11, so we had two family members that couldn't go swimming for free. The pool house is very strict and would not allow them to come in without a pass card. That was a little frustrating. 2. Lots of flies, but nothing a good rolled up newspaper didn't solve (maybe have a few in the supply closet?). 3. This is really minor, but the light switches for the dining room table would be nice if they were labeled. It took us until the morning of our departure to finally get the switch combination right to be able to use it. Other than those somewhat minor issues, the house was clean, comfortable, and we would definitely come back and/or recommend it to other families.

Owner's Response: So glad this guest had a great stay in our spacious Territory home. If the proximity card situation arises during your stay (sometimes they check out with previous guests) please let us know. You can purchase a guest pass and we will gladly reimburse you after your stay. Also the area is in a very natural setting, insects of all types are prevelant. We have the home treated by a pest control service and professionally cleaned after each stay. If you come in the spring you may experience boxelder bugs or japanese beetles and there is always nature near all year long. It's part of the joy of staying in the Territory! Bugs, Birds and Bats Oh MY!

Reviewer Comments:

The house is big and beautiful but very poorly maintained. The screens on windows and doors were torn, carpeting on stairs were filthy, deck is such poor condition that I walked out on it wearing socks and got a huge splinter, wifi was not working till we called and parts had to be replaced. shower and sink spray was way off until another worker came to fix it.
