About Bill

Hi-Welcome to our home. We're Bill and Sue. Several years ago our friends invited us to take a drive out to Galena with them. We didn’t know then about the rich history Galena boasts of, the beauty of the deep vistas and the tranquility of the woods and abundant wildlife, however these are the wonders that brought us back....year after year. Each visit introduced us to new discoveries in Northwest Illinois and educational interests and experiences for our children.

Bill purchased this lodge in 2007

Why Bill chose The Galena Territory

Galena is close enough yet far enough away from home; 3 hours drive from Chicago making it the perfect get-away place for a weekend trip. It is tucked away in Northwest Illinois and unlike the rest of the state of IL, Galena is hilly and picturesque. Downtown Galena is like stepping back in time with mid 19th century architecture aligning Main Street and beyond. Located 8 miles from town is our home, nestled at the galena Territory. It is peaceful, yet a fun place for a large groups or extended family gathering. It is a solid built home. We love it here and hope you will too.

What makes this lodge unique

Enjoy a game of pool or ping pong, challenge your friends to a game of poker, or relax in the outdoor private hot tub. Enjoy grilling with our 'never run out of gas' grill. Experience the natural surroundings; take a hike down the many trails in the Territory. Golf the 'General' or ski down the slopes of Chestnut Mountain Resort. Zip line 2.5 hour canopy tours just 1.5 miles away, Year-round activities make Galena the escape weekend destination

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Bill,



The person from our group that won the golf tournament in September is in charge of the outing for 2014. He has tentatively determined to host the tournament in Colorado in 2014.



Thank you for thinking of us, your home was one of the best venues we have had in the 30 years we have been doing this tournament.

Amazing House equipped w/EVERYTHING

  • 5 of 5

The Eagle's Nest at Galena Area Rentals was amazing. I rented the home for the weekend for a birthday retreat getaway and the pictures do it absolutely no justice. Bill was so helpful and responded very quickly to any assistance I needed. I was even able to speak with his wife when Bill was sleep when I called. The house is fully equipped literally with ANY AND EVERYTHING you could possibly need. All of my guest was so pleased with the house. We had a great time and was able to relax. If you're looking for a rental property in Galena with friendly owners, The Eagle's Nest is it!!!! Thanks again Bill.

This property is one of a kind!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful! All the furnishings are top notch from the furniture, linens and everything you would want in a kitchen to entertain a large group. We have been going there for several years for our family Christmas and it is always great to return "home for the holidays."
