About Tranquil Trails Vacation Rentals
This sister sister team purchased the Cottage at Oak Glen several years ago after deciding to exchange their lake front weekends for the beautiful scenery and golf opportunities of the Galena Territory. Both educators and both living in the Chicago suburbs, they needed a place to unwind at week end and this picturesque corner of Illinois provided that in abundance. Close enough to leave work on a Friday afternoon and be here for dinner, yet far enough to escape the pressure of weekend ‘to do’ lists! Families and other commitments have taken precedence over regular weekends away and they have decided to share their home and the growing list of local activity opportunities with other pleasure seekers.
Why Tranquil Trails Vacation Rentals chose The Galena Territory
For these golf lovers, the Galena Territory and surrounding area provided an abundance of course choices as well as other outdoor activities to entertain their non-golfing friends. With the extensive array of area activities and dining opportunities they have never regretted the decision to make Galen their home away from home.
What makes this House unique
Located near one of the most popular golf courses in the Territory, it’s possible to stroll to the clubhouse for a snack or beverage or just to take in the scenery of the beautifully manicured golf greens. In winter months, this zone is hub to the many cold weather sport opportunities available in the area.

Great place for 2 couples. The 2 bedrooms were in different parts of the house which gave added privacy. Great outdoor area for sitting outside. Walking trails through the woods were nearby. Convenient to the resort which had a small market as well as a restaurant. Definitely would stay again.
Thank you Lori! You'll have to come back sometime when you're not attending a wedding so you can really have a chance to discover all that Galena has to offer. Thank you for choosing the Cottage at Oak Glen. All the best!
we loved the cottage-------very well set up
The cottage had everything we needed----the Galena Territory is a beautiful area and well located to visit Galena---we were 2 senior couples--they had the upstairs bedroom and bathroom----we had the main level----it worked great--a little privacy when wanted and yet we spent most our time together.
Thank you Gary, we're happy that the home and the area was everything you expected. We hope to see you again!
Cute cottage in wooded area convenient to Eagle River Inn
Property is in need of major upgrading inside and out compared to its neighbors. Front walkway is wearing down and is a trip hazard. Mattresses were flat. Five people attended only set up for four. Sofa bed not made up and not enough towels. That being said the area is beautiful. Lots of light. Lovely screened in porch. Rooms were large and had a comfy feeling. Priced accordingly.
Thank you Linda for taking the time to write a review. It appears that overall you were pleased which is nice to hear, however you did mention a few things that did not suit your personal choice. The front walkway is a bit rugged as is the terrain of the area however we will keep an eye the safety factor. We have had several guests comment on how comfortable the beds are and so it is difficult to make a change when more often we hear positive feedback. I'm very sorry if there were not enough towels left out for your use, this must have been an oversight and if it happens to you again in any rental home I would encourage you to call the manager or owner so it can be taken care of immediately to your satisfaction. Thank you again for choosing this home. All the best!
Quaint home with plenty of space nestled in the woods.
We loved the open floor plan and bedroom and bathroom for both couples. We spent so much time in the screened porch. It sits surrounded by woods, beautiful, quiet and peaceful.
Perfect location for the guys to golf and the girls to head into town. We will be coming back.
Thank you Susan! That screened porch allows guests to let the outside in and is a great place to share stories, games, and maybe some wine! So happy you enjoyed the home and the area and we'll definitely look forward to your return! All the best!
This cabin is absolutely perfect for a weekend getaway. Every detail is charming and the screened in deck is heaven. Secluded, quiet, beautiful and plenty of space for us and two kids. Can't wait to go back!
How nice to hear! Thank you so much for the great review and for choosing the Cottage at Oak Glen for your Galena getaway! Hope to welcome you again.
Great for a girls’ getaway!
Visited for 3 nights for a relaxing mother-daughter getaway. House is a bit out of the way but the drive is beautiful with rolling hills all around and the house is adorable! Loved the screen porch, and the kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed. Only big downside was that the WiFi was broken during our stay which also caused the TV programming not to work. Ginger was very responsive when we notified her. On the other hand, no WiFi can often be a blessing in disguise :) Overall we really enjoyed our stay in Galena and in this house. We definitely will be coming back!
Thank you Samantha! I'm so sorry about the wifi problem, it is fixed now however. Thank you for turning a wifi lemon into a lovely limoncello! Hope to see you return. All the best!
