Upscale, Spacious, 5/6 Bedroom Contemporary Cottage with Superb Privacy & VIews
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 Territory
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.

We had an amazing time! Our family of 12 made so many memories at Coyote Cove while celebrating our son’s college graduation. Our favorite places in the house were definitely the outdoor porches. On rainy days we spent a lot of time on the screened in porch. The kids and grandparents played lots of pool and we all relaxed in the hot tub. The large family dining table was perfect for us. The kids met one of the neighbors who invited them to use their basketball set they purchased for their grandchildren to use. Wonderful neighborhood! We used the Owner’s Club, rented a Pontoon boat and went fishing, spent many days in downtown Galena too. We really appreciated the large accessible bathroom on the main level, very functional for our daughter. David was amazing from the start with tons of information about the property and the area. Because of all the upfront correspondence with us, we picked his property over others. Our family is already planning a future stay at Coyote Cove.
We do have one question... What kind of mattresses were in the house? We ALL had the best night sleeps. Seriously!
This property was perfect for our large family and it was especially nice to each have our own bathroom. There were plenty of common spaces for us all to be together as well. The bugs were very bad during our stay so unfortunately we didn’t get to enjoy outdoors very often like we had hoped. The scenery is beautiful and the screened porch was one of the best places in the house. The house is accommodated with just about anything you could think of and the items for use are top of the line. I especially enjoyed the comfortable bed and very soft bath towels. We also enjoyed having access to the clubhouse. The owners are great to work with and were very responsive to any issues that may arise. If we ever make it back to Galena, this would be the perfect place to stay again. Thank you!
Thank you for your compliments, and please do return to lovely Galena. We designed our home to be so nice that large families and groups could fully enjoy themselves even when conditions outside were not perfect. Normally, bugs are never much of a problem in Galena, but on occasions like you experienced it's wonderful to enjoy the relaxing protection of the large screened porch.
1st Annual Family Get-Together
We absolutely loved staying at this house. We got together as a family in honor of our mom and dad who have passed (our mom recently) and had such a great time, and it was such a great place to stay, we plan on getting together every year now.
We mostly loved the 2 living areas that made it very easy for everyone to relax and visit. A huge plus was the dining room table that allowed us all to be able to eat together. We appreciated the extra privacy of the bedrooms with attached/near by bathrooms. Enjoyed the peaceful deck and screened in porch as well. And the house was supplied with everything we needed.
David was wonderful to work with. We were very sad to see our time away end, and already are looking forward to our next family get-together.
Thank you. We designed our home with groups like yours in mind, and we love to read when groups experience all its pleasures. We hope it made all of you feel closer again to your parents. Please consider Coyote Cove again for your future get togethers.
Felt like home for the weekend
There isn't enough I can say about how lovely our stay was!
The home is cozy, adorable and had everything we needed for the weekend. It was simple for our group to just sit back and sink into the weekend.
David was so informative and helpful. He was responsive and very kind.
We are already talking about returning next year and my friends who have a wedding in Galena next year are thinking of passing up the hotel if they can stay here instead.
It made a great impression on everyone.
Thank you for your compliments. Guests who want to stay again are proof of how lovely Coyote Cove is, its wonderful location and the great service we always provide.
David was a great host, always very responsive in communication! The house was very nice and super clean(very important to us)! Our family had a great stay!
Thank you for your compliments. I'm blessed with a wonderful staff who share my passion for cleanliness and proper maintenance. I hope all our guests enjoy that as much as you did.
WONDERFUL FAMILY WEEKEND!!
We spent an extended weekend at Coyote Cove with our adult kids and their spouses in exchange for gift giving at Christmas time. The house layout was perfect for our family and it was very tastefully decorated and cozy. We enjoyed walks outdoors, time spent in the hot tub, and pool playing. We enjoyed making delicious food in the beautiful kitchen and being able to eat together comfortably around the dining table. We talked, laughed and made many great memories together! We all had a wonderful weekend! Thank you David and Rebecca for sharing your beautiful house!
Thank you so much for your review -- and for enjoying our beautiful home. You mention so many of the features that make it special for us and our extended family, too. Please come again.
