**Beautiful, Historic and Updated** This preservation AWARD winning home was built in 1856 and is in an incredible location. Bench St is one street North of Main St and this home is approximately 150 steps to all the amazing dining, shopping and entertainment that Downtown Galena has to offer.
This home is an AMAZING 1600 square feet. It feels spacious and welcoming, definitely not your typical downtown rental. When you pull up and locate your on-street parking (first come first serve) you will notice the immaculate exterior of the home. It is located directly across the street from Turner Hall and could accommodate a bridal group, guests at a function or just serve as a beautiful backdrop for your stay.
When you enter the home off of Bench St. you will enter into the foyer with the study to the right (location of air mattress) and living room to the left. There is plenty of comfortable seating and a flat screen tv for you to enjoy. The dining room is large and will be a great spot to enjoy meals and play games during your stay. The half bath is located on this level as well as the galley style, eat in kitchen (for 2) with all of the modern amenities. Step out back onto the back deck which is a great place to relax. Upstairs are the 3 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. Plush linens and towels are available for you and don't forget that awesome view of Turner Hall across the street. Please note this home does not have a washer and dryer for guest use.
You are literally steps to everything in Galena but don't forget just a short drive will have you enjoying the vineyard at Galena Cellars, The Galena Territory walking paths or Dubuque's River Walk.
Enjoy your stay on one of the most desirable streets in Galena!

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
There were 7 of us at Bench street. We loved many things about the house that was built in the 1850's. The old radiant water heat, some of the old round light switches, lots of character. All the bedrooms were large with nice beds, even the blow up was nice for a blow up and fit well in the study. Having just one full bath was never really a problem, however no one took a long shower. We could have found a fancier place in the territory but the convenience of being so close to main street was well worth it. We did not have to worry about cab calls and fees. The kitchen was well equipped, I cooked for everyone our first night there, we even played Apples to Apples. I hope to stay here in Galena again.
We do a girls get away once a year. I have visited Galena many times & have always stayed in the territories. This year we stayed in town & loved it. The owner thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. The home is lovely & we loved that is was so close to all the stores & restaurants. We never had to drive anywhere, since the owner had the fridge stocked with water & also coffee for 4 of us for the time we were there. I would definitely stay there again. Only negative was the internet did not really work very well. I did bring that to Abby’s attention (who by the way was great to work with) said she was going to look into it. We plan on staying there when we return to Galena.
Downtown Galena is an amazing historical and scenic location to journey to. You will love the location of our home in in this idyllic town!
