Photos and Description of this The Galena Territory holiday cottage

3 bedrooms and lots of extra space and couches, futons, sleeps8-10 people

A wonderful, charming and relaxing location to take a break from life or to party it up. Walking distance is Lake Galena where you can rent a boat to cruise around, go fishing, or dock at random places and explore the forest. Fish (lots of it) from the peer or rent a boat, enjoy volleyball, soccer, basketball and tennis courts, as well as one of the best Golf courses in the world! Nearby is Galena town with its civil war-era charm, private wineries with wine tasting every day, local cheese makers, unique sauces, sweets, as well as antique stores. Fine selection of restaurants, from fancy French, Italian, to small town diners and burger joints (one literally called 'Burger Joint', its awesome!). About 20 minutes away is the Mississippi river and town of Dubuque. There you can find vegas-style casinos. This is a great destination for a family vacation, or just a friends getaway to nature. We can house up to 20 people in 2 houses.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property as both a hunting week and then for a family gathering over the Thanksgiving holiday. Both stays were wonderful with all amenities you need to have a full Thanksgiving meal.

The owner (Tatiana) was great to deal with and quickly resolved what minor issues we had. I would definitely rent the home again and highly recommend the property for future family gatherings. You can also rent the home next door for larger groups.

Great Property - Have a Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the 8 Waterford property and we had a great time. The house was very spacious and we had a lot of fun exploring the Galena area. The clubhouse and pool were great. We have 13 month old twins that had a great time in the kiddie pool. Our 6 yo daughter also had a great time in the pool.

Highly recommended.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property. The house was great, the clubhouse and new pools were wonderful and the area was beautiful. My family came up for a week and it was a very relaxing week. We were greeted by Jeff and he gave some great fishing tips to my husband and son and they had great luck fishing in the evenings... the pools were great, the people friendly and it was a wonderful in all kinds of weather. Thanks to Tatiana for sharing her home. PS.. there is great wild life to watch from the screened porch.

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We spent the first week of May in the cabin and loved every minute of it. What a beautiful property. We felt right at home and didn't want to leave when it was time to go home. The design is very nice as well as the furnishings. We really enjoyed the screened porch/deck. We saw wild turkeys wandering through the yard almost every evening. Tatiana was so easy to work with for our booking and actually called us at the cabin the first day to make sure we had everything we needed. Jeff was great about answering our questions and making sure everything was ready for our arrival. We will definitely stay here again when we visit the Galena area in the future. The property is just a short drive away from historic downtown Galena.

Great relax

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from Galena and this wonderful cabin. Tatiana ( the owner) is a great person and answered all our questions and help us with everything. Jeff also.

The cabin is really nice, warm, clean and has everything you need. We had a great, quite, relaxing time. A lot of wild turkeys and beautiful birds around.

Thank you Tatiana for everything.
