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!!!

Good experience. One of the best locations

  • 4 of 5

It is located on a beautiful hill. Driving there was a experience. Property was clean. Few things that we did not know before going to the property. Hope these could be added to the description somewhere on the website. 1) Patio did not have a open view. 2) It is not a independent house - it is a row house.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the weekend here with our two young grandchildren and it was a perfect place for 4 people! It was beautifully decorated, quiet, spotlessly clean, and so comfortable! The kitchen was great for eating in, but of course there are many wonderful restaurants nearby too. Passes to the Owner's Club are such a bonus with access to both the indoor and outdoor (when in season) swimming pools and other activities. Staying in the Galena Territories is a great location because the drives to Galena or Elizabeth are both so easy with so much to see and do! Most of all, the owners are so helpful and quick to respond to any questions you might have. I would highly recommend a stay here any time. Definitely a 5 star accomodation!

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!!!
