Let us tell you about our lakeside home in the beautiful, rolling hills of Galena Territory, conveniently located near the Eagle Ridge Inn, the North Course Pro Shop and the General Store…
Calming views of Lake Galena sooth the soul.
In addition to the breathtaking scenery outside our windows, the inside of our home has been lovingly decorated with antiques, artwork and comfortable, attractive furnishings. Quite a few teddy bear friends will keep you company; hence we were named “Teddy Bear Place” by one of our young guests. The charming screened-in porch completes the peaceful atmosphere.
All you need to bring is yourself.
Our home has all that you will need for your vacation. The two bedrooms contain very comfortable queen size beds, one a pine four poster bed, the other a brass bed. In addition there is a very comfortable sleeper sofa in the living room that allows a maximum of six people to occupy the condo overnight. There are two full baths and all the linens are provided. The kitchen, overlooking the living and dining areas, is fully equipped with microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker and pretty much everything else you will need. In the living room area you are invited to enjoy the CD player, HD cable television and VCR, as well as an eclectic selection of CDs, tapes, movies and books. Finally, the cozy fireplace adds just one more element of warmth to the whole room.

My wife and I have been retired for over 10 years and the condo has been in the family since 1984. We discovered tnat the Lohenry ancestors settled in Galena approx in 1840 and we have unearthed many interesting facts about them since.

The Galena Territory offers something for everyone. The rolling hills of the territory offer three internationally acclaimed golf courses, including the challenging eighteen hole course named “The General”, tennis courts, hiking and fitness trails, boating, excellent fishing, swimming, horseback riding and lessons and fine restaurants for casual or special dining. Nature lovers will especially enjoy the countless critters that are frequently spotted within the territory, including deer, wild turkeys and an occasional fox. Also, the quaint, historic town of Galena with its exquisite architecture, unique shops and excellent restaurants is only ten minutes away.
Find the best of both worlds during winter at the Territory. Even the winter months are enjoyable at Teddy Bear Place. There are so many activities to partake in, such as sledding, ice skating, hiking, ice-fishing and cross-country skiing. Downhill skiing is available at nearby Chestnut Mountain. Afterwards, you can retreat inside, cuddle up near the warm, cozy fireplace with a steaming cup of hot chocolate or relish in the luxury of an afternoon nap.
We are once again enjoying our stay at your conco. It is always decorated so nicely and it provides a relaxing environment in which we can get away from the stresses of life. Thank you for having us a repeat guest at the Teddy Bear Place.
The owners could not have been nicer or more helpful to me, both before and during my stay. I chose this property for the view of the lake, and it did not disappoint. It was so peaceful and comfortable. So many things were provided for me - towels, hair drier, soaps and lotions, books and games, a book full of area information and maps, and the kitchen was very well-stocked.
I enjoyed hiking almost 10 miles a day on very clearly-marked trails. I also enjoyed shopping in downtown Galena, just a short drive away. I would definitely return!
Had a Wonderful stay on our Fall trip to Galena. Beautiful views. Great walking paths. Was perfect to get our steps in with Beautiful views.
Spend the days in Galena and then came back to a quiet peaceful location. Thanks for sharing your place was just Perfect!!! Diane
Great Experience! We loved it! Had everything we wanted or needed right in the area. Will definitely consider it again!
This was our first visit to Galena for our big girls weekend trip and I have to say we had a blast. Before planning our trip I spent a lot of time reading reviews about rooms and condos before even booking. The Teddy Bear Place stood out, it had a lot of great reviews, the price was reasonable , and the pictures looked awesome, so I figured why not try it, but I have to say I was a little hesitant believing everything I read online. Happy to say the reviews were correct!!! The Teddy Bear Place was easy to find, secluded from the hussle and bussle of a lot of people and traffic, but yet a very easy short drive into town. The view and setting of the condo was beautiful and it was so peaceful and relaxing both during the day and night. The condo was very clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Trust me if you forget something at home, chances are Teddy Bear has it already there waiting for you. The décor was very cute and the atmosphere provided a very homey and cozy feeling. The information left in the condo had details and answered any questions we had about Galena and since this was our first visit that was very helpful. The night before leaving for our trip, I had a question for the owner, he responded back within a few hours and when I booked online with him I received an email as well as a detailed letter in the mail with all the information needed for our stay. I would highly recommend booking your stay at The Teddy Bear Place for a nice peaceful relaxing home away from home feeling. If we are ever in the area again we will for sure be booking our stay again with Teddy Bear Place

My two sisters and I called the Teddy Bear Place home for four days in early September. Our visit was wonderful. The property is very comfortable, spotless and well maintained. The owners provided wonderful written instructions re: how everything works, TV/DVD players, the door lock system. There is a well- thought -out 3-ring binder loaded with brochures explaining things to do in the area. With two bedrooms and two baths (plus the hide- a -bed sofa, which we did not use), we had plenty of room. Our hosts thought of everything visitors might need--bathrooms well supplied, very well equipped kitchen, wonderful screened in porch to enjoy, stepping stool for short people, an extra umbrella, laundry facilities, lots of games to enjoy. We had one question about the property upon arrival, and our hosts were readily available and easy to reach. It was very hot and humid during our stay, and the air conditioning system was excellent. We made use of the walking trails and indoor pool at the Owners Club. The Galena Territory is a fabulous resort , beautiful to drive through and enjoy the vistas. We would not hesitate to return to the Teddy Bear Place or recommend this property to others.
