Overview

The Galena Territory Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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.

About Charles Lohenry

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.

Charles Lohenry purchased this condo in 1995

Why Charles Lohenry chose Galena

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Comfortable and warm place with wonderful amenities! Great sister time!

  • 4 of 5

We were a little confused on where to rent boats but once we got there we rented a pontoon and toured the lake. Wonderful!

I know this was out of the owners control...they were working on siding and 4 wheelers went right past our windows for the last 3 mornings at 7 a.m.! A little disconcerting because we all wanted to sleep in.

Really didn't have to bring much to the condo and was very comfortable!

Owner's Response: Sorry about the siding replacement! We wish we knew sooner. Thanks for the kind words.

Peaceful get away

  • 5 of 5

The property was quiet, clean, and well appointed. It is close to the Inn, golf courses, and the general store; yet secluded enough to provide a relaxing experience. We particularly enjoyed the pool that is for this condo community. It is walking distance, clean, and not over populated. A nice alternative to the Owner's Club pools. We had a wonderful time. Thank you to the Lohenry's!

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is spacious and attractively decorated. The owners have thought of everything and it is very well stocked. The kitchen has all that you need, plus a few extras (my husband was so happy to see sugar on the counter in a canister for his morning coffee). The screened in porch is the perfect spot for coffee or an evening drink. Bedrooms were roomy and comfortable. There is even a washer and dryer for your use. Would highly recommend this condo.

All good

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, convenient, and well equipped and maintained household, close to everything.

It's on the bottom level of 3 stories, so if there are 'lead-footed' people above you, it can be distracting. I assume you only have a view of Lake Galena during winter when there's no leaves on the trees.

Perfect location and amenities

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here with my two boys and some friends for the run4troops marathon in Dubuque. Relaxed and grilled by the pool after the race. Had everything we needed in a nice quiet location. While I understand a woodsy location offers lots of wildlife, my only complaint is some bugs (ants, spiders, and crickets) lurking about the condo.
