About owner/property manager

Tom and I have traveled throughout the united states and abroad, we both agree, there is no place like our Galena home! We began coming up to this area approximately (5) years ago and we have always been drawn or ended up in the Territories, as the beauty is truly remarkable. We want to share this beauty and cozy feeling with anyone who is looking for a 'stress free' get away. Tom and I are still currently working and we use Oak Glen 12 as our 'retreat' from the everyday hustle/bustle. Enjoy! Tom & Pat Ellison, Orland park, il.

owner/property manager purchased this townhome in 2011

Why owner/property manager chose Galena

For the past (5) years, Tom and I have been traveling to this area and staying with relatives at nearby lakes. When we came across the 'Galena Territories', we fell in love all over again. Not to mention, Tom is an avid golfer and this is the place for that! I love the scenery and the SPA it's awesome!! We can replenish our minds and just relax. I cannot say enough of the beauty and charm, this is why we had to become owners.

What makes this townhome unique

Our unit (OG-12) is very well kept, because we love it up here! You will find warmth, charm and by the way we have great neighbors! Our main goal is to make sure that you enjoy this unit as much as we do. Our children and grandchildren visit and they love the unit along with all of the other amenities...swimming etc., we have a great time and hope you will as well!!!

Galena, IL getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very clean,beautiful views and all around nice place to stay! My husband loved the golf course and I enjoyed the members pool area. This is definitely a great place to stay and Galena is a glorious place to visit. The owners were very easy to work with. My daughter is thinking about going back during the winter to ski. Lots of things to do including walking the beautiful trails around the condo and just relaxing on the deck!!!

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

Condo entrance took us to the loft area, overlooking main living quarters and home to a nicely sized bedroom and bathroom. Down on the main floor, a cozy open area combined the kitchen, dining area and living room to provide ample room for relaxing and talking. Another nice bedroom and bathroom rounded out the living quarters. Tastefully decorated and clean. A patio door provided access to the outdoor porch. The owners' club and resort were about a mile or two in opposite directions from the condo, but that was fine for us. One of the golf courses is right around the corner. Deer and some skunk were spotted on the golf course around dusk, but everyone went their own way. We made the trek into Galena several times, and the distance seemed to shorten each time. If you take to the back roads, it is possible to reach the resort from Galena without taking Highway 20, but take a map with you, and do it during the day. No noise from condos on either side, though several were occupied. Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was a wonderful, peaceful retreat for a quick family vacation.

So Nice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in June 2016 and found the accommodations were excellent. Very close to all Galena activities and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Very clean and decor is modern with a complete kitchen/all you need is your food! Even has a grille off of the deck! Galena is packed with activities to do and this place made our trip so enjoyable. Owners are the best.We definitely will recommend it to family and friends and we will be coming back.
