About Joan Raymond

My grandparents owned a farm very close to The Galena Territory where I spent every Sunday, as well as many weeks in the summer as a child. I have very fond memories of the area! Even though I live in Colorado, we come to Galena as often as we can. All of my family still lives throughout the tri-state area.

Joan Raymond purchased this house in 2013

Why Joan Raymond chose Galena

We walked into this house and were impressed with every aspect of it, not to mention the incredible Burr oak tree in the back yard which was almost reason enough to buy the property. My family and I have rented houses through VRBO and Home Away all over the world and have become very picky about what we expect and we knew that this house had it!!

What makes this house unique

The house was thoughtfully designed for comfort, flow and entertaining. Every room has a great view. You feel like you are in a treehouse. The open feel of the home is accentuated with a different ceiling in each room. The center marble island in the kitchen evolves into the gathering place. The hickory floor, knotty alder woodwork, the warm glow of a fireplace and the sound of wildlife makes this a perfect destination getaway for corporations, family or friends.

Stunning home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 couples enjoyed a fun, relaxing long weekend. This home is the perfect getaway retreat with every amenity imaginable. Beautifully decorated with high end furnishings and attention to detail. We loved the lower level recreation area, the screen porch, bocce court and hot tub! Joan was fantastic to work with. Thank you for sharing your lovely home in historic Galena!

The Kiwi's Loved Your Home

  • 5 of 5

Joan your home is fantastic and the price is worth everything you pay for a large group to stay.

Kudos to your decorating, the beds and bathrooms were to die for, I would definitely come back again or recommend your home.

I wish all VRBO's were like your home and the quality of the finishes. Thanks you for the opportunity to make memories with my friends from New Zealand.

Perfect home in every way !

  • 5 of 5

I am in a group of women(10 bunco moms) that have been renting homes in Eagle Ridge for 8 years. Joan's house was by far the best. It is stunningly beautiful! It was spacious, very clean and well organized . The kitchen was well stocked . We just loved everything about it! Joan is wonderful to work with. We could not have been happier! We all loved the decorating. Joan you are amazing! Thank you for making our visit to your lovely home so wonderful. See you next year! Jill

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

This house was the most perfect rental. So much common area for every possible mood. The pool table and basement were awesome. Beds were comfortable, and really nice wireless speakers that made the overall experience tremendous.

A-Maz-ing

  • 5 of 5

Owner, Joan, is a delight to work with; quick to answer questions. The house is immaculate and decorated so well it felt like a model home. Wonderful spaces to come together as a family or group to cook, play games, watch movies, etc., but also plenty of space to get some quiet time to yourself if you wish. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Galena. During Father's Day Weekend, Hot Air Balloon Fest nearby is awesome!
