Luxuriously relax during a fun escape to our lovely vacation rental home, Coyote Cove, in the Galena Territory near Galena, IL. Every season is a special delight. Play in the Summer sun; marvel at the festival of Fall colors; enjoy Winter warmth by the huge hearth, or refresh in the Spring breezes on the porch and decks!

Popular dates book fast, and it's never too early to think about reservations. Reserve your dates soon to get your first choice. A truly luxurious escape is when you get away while others work! Steal away for weekdays, too, any time of year. So, indulge yourself and enjoy much lower midweek rates.

You’ll be captivated by the breathtaking setting, casually sophisticated décor, convenience and amenities galore! Open-air hot tub, three large gathering rooms, big HD TVs, pool table, pub table, huge kitchen island (w/5 barstools), silky linens and superior mattresses – SPACE, COMFORT and DREAMY EASE are yours at Coyote Cove.

Excellent location! Coyote Cove is only 3 turns from US Hwy 20. And offers the closest access to Galena’s restaurants, shopping and historic charm. It couldn’t be better!

Seat 12 adults, comfortably, at the custom Harvest Table. Terrifically outfitted kitchen is a group-cooking delight, down to the cookie sheets and cooling racks. Aromatic hot cocoa, warm cookies, cider … endless memory-making possibilities for all. Plenty of large, beautiful baking dishes, a big slow cooker, even a large roaster, for brunch in pajamas, maybe chili & cornbread lunches, and decidedly relaxed dinners! Enjoy easy access to the gas grill, with unforgettable views!

The large hot tub is a vacation all by itself – day or night! Giant, plush hot tub towels are here for you. Find action, friendly competition and laughter around the pool and pub tables. Catch favorite sports and movies, from the luscious leather furniture (adjoining media room), on the largest of Coyote Cove's three HD TVs. Marvel at the Vista Room’s spectacular views - Lake Galena, the glorious hills, woods and countryside. An ideal spot for reading, board games, playing cards, scrapbooking, earnest conversations and TV. The sofa bed creates a private 6th bedroom. The views, the views, the views!

About David

Rebecca and David built Coyote Cove as their vacation dream home in 2008 to share with their family and friends. A native of northern Illinois, Rebecca chose the exterior colors to echo the lovely natural hues of abundant summer cornfields, and even the charming lady bugs she played with as a child. Galena Territory's hills, valleys and natural beauty captivate David, who grew up deep in the Ozarks. His labor of love was to select an especially scenic site, and situate the home and all its windows to capture compelling views of the surrounding natural beauty, while offering guests perfect privacy.

David purchased this house in 2008

Why David chose Galena

From the beginning of their Coyote Cove project, Rebecca and David knew they would offer this home for rental to guests, whom they wanted to enjoy its relaxing amenities and beautiful setting. Special attention was given to every detail of design, furniture and furnishings to attend to every need and interest of guests. The immense harvest dining table, comfortable bedding, plush towels, large rooms, spacious seating, abundantly equipped kitchen, endearing artwork, charming furniture, expansive decks, breezy screened porch and open air, open sky hot tub all reflect this passionate attention to detail.

What makes this house unique

Unlike so many other vacation rental homes that cram too many bedrooms into too little space, on small lots with little privacy and minimal views, Coyote Cove offers guests spacious comfort, privacy and beauty for all their pursuits all day long. Large gathering rooms on each of three levels allow guests to be together or apart as they need or desire and to pursue a wide range of activities and pleasures. Three outdoor decks, and a separate screened porch, expand these gathering choices. The large yard allows for more vigorous activities, and even the spacious, paved driveway affords ample parking. This eases loading and unloading of your golf bags, fishing rods, skis or luggage -- as well as all the bags of whatever you may buy when you shop historic Galena's Main Street shops.

Fantastic Home for Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Coyote Cove for several nights with our extended family including many small children. The house was absolutely perfect to accommodate such a large group! Both the interior and exterior features allowed for the kids to play as well as give the adults some relaxation time. We loved spending time in the evenings on the large deck outside - a perfect view of the open starry sky! We've stayed in the Galena Territory for several years now and this is our favorite home this far! Thank you to David and Rebecca for being so accommodating and hospitable to our family!! :)

Owner's Response: We're very flattered by your compliments and share your love for our home. It would be a wonderful place to live, if we could, but it certainly is a wonderful place to enjoy. Like your family, our family finds the large variety of places to play and visit to be so relaxing and enjoyable. We are very happy when our guests find our home, and the beautiful galena area, as fun and enjoyable as we do.

Beautiful stay

Beautiful home. We had a great stay and loved the home. Everything was up to date and clean and in working conditions. The one small issue we did have upon arrival was immediately dealt with by the owner.

Owner's Response: Our goal is for our guests never to have any issues, but houses sometimes have their own ideas. Whenever that occurs, we rally to fix whatever may be amiss, and thank you for noting how fast we responded and that the issue was immediately resolved. . That is our constant practice, because this business is fun for us only if we know our guests are having nothing but fun.

Ladies getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Coyote cove for 2 nights and had a wonderful trip. It was my sisters bachelorette weekend getaway and there were 13 of us ladies. Coyote cove fit us all very comfortably. It is very clean and has everything you need to enjoy a weekend away. It is located in a great location, close to Main Street, galena territory club pool and galena lake. We took advantage of the pool and rented a couple pontoon boats. We also went on a hot air balloon ride which fit all of us ladies! David and Rebecca were very helpful in helping me plan this weekend and were very quick to respond to my questions and were very thorough with all the answers. I would definitely recommend this place for a fun and relaxing ladies getaway.

Early family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Our family ranges in age from 85 to 20 years old, we were looking for a house that could give 13 of us the chance to be together. Everything was clean and pleasing to the eye, the floor plan gave us ample opportunities to be together and space for some me time also. The kitchen set up was amazing. Over the years we have rented several homes and never had the selection of kitchen ware, utensils and extras that were provided here, platters, crock pot, roaster, the list goes on and on. Every detail is considered in each room, you will want for nothing, everything is quality. Galena is close by for dining and shopping if desired.

Owner's Response: It's wonderful that your entire family enjoyed themselves so much at Coyote Cove. Your comments reward us, because you say what we always hoped guests would stay in our home. We're proud of its spacious layout, and how it helps assure that large groups can be very comfortable over an extended stay. And your celebration of our kitchen thrills Rebecca, who worked so hard to make it as perfect for guests as she could imagine. Please come back and enjoy Coyote Cove again and again.

Awesome girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year in a row that we have rented this house. We keep coming back because it is a quality home with all the amenities you need. Each bedroom has a full bath with great showers and nice thick towels. They think of the little things like bathroom cups, plenty of wine glasses, dishes , pans, utensils, serving bowls and platters, etc.

We have 10-12 women that rent this home for a girls getaway weekend. We cook together and watch movies and shop. The house is set up superbly for all these activities.

The owner is so responsive and ready to meet any need that arises during your stay. I highly recommend this home and we plan to return in 2016.

Owner's Response: Thank your for your personal compliments and your compliments on our home. Repeat guests are very special to us. It's like making new friends, and knowing they are happy to share what we also enjoy so much. We hope memories of Coyote Cove always bring smiles to our guests' faces, just like nice reviews from our guests always bring smiles to ours.
