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.

Owner's Response: Your words are more complimentary than your stars, so I will focus on the former. :-) Coyote Cove is a great place, as our other guest reviews also confirm. Our team labors very hard to make it very clean for all our guests. For my wife Rebecca, it's a labor of love to stock the house with everything she imagines our guests could want to enjoy all our home's features, and prepare fabulous vacation meals in its wonderful kitchen or on its outdoor grill. Please come enjoy our home again.

A memorable weekend!

  • 5 of 5

If we could, we would give this experience a 10 star rating! Everything was perfect! When inquiring about the home, we received immediate, detailed feedback. The home itself was wonderful --- exceptionally clean, fully stocked and beautifully furnished. We had forgotten a couple things after we left and David graciously mailed them to us. Excellent customer service all around! We will definitely return!

Coyote Cove

  • 5 of 5

Coyote Cove was amazing. A bathroom for every bedroom, hot tub, beautiful views, over equipped kitchen (which was great). The owners were awesome and very easy to work with. Someone met us there and orientated us to the amenities of the house which was very helpful. We had an awesome weekend with friends and made lots of great memories. Thanks David and Rebecca.

Perfect home for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th Anniversary here with our extended family; included 7 adults and 5 children. Everything was perfect! Comfortably accommodated our group. This house is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The great room and lower level rec room were large enough for all of us to gather together. We had a photographer out to shoot family portraits and the grounds were perfect, we have great photos that will always remind us of the wonderful time we had at Coyote Cove! Highly recommend.

Perfect property for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Property was great in accommodating our family. Bedrooms on all three levels provided nice privacy for mom & dad (me, main level) vs. adult kids (lower level) and another family member (upper level). Great open space in the first floor allowed us to host additional family members (staying at another location) for an evening gathering. Only wish we had more time than the weekend to take advantage of all the home's amenities. Never made it to the hot tub, pool table or homeowner's club. Definitely would stay here again whether with family or a group of friends.

Owner's Response: It sounds like you used our home very well and discovered how well it can accommodate large family groups or groups of friends. It's even more luxuriously spacious for smaller groups that want to indulge in its varied gathering spaces and comfortable bedrooms. Please do come again, and leave yourself enough time to enjoy all the amenities that The Galena Territory offers our guests.
