Thanks for asking. Besides the cool weather, everything was perfect. Both Houses (2 and Fore Augusta) were as advertised and met our needs. We enjoyed our time and would consider returning when time permits.

Everything we needed was provided. Beautiful home and very comfortable,everyone had their own space. Large living space that allowed us to enjoy the kitchen and pool table rooms as a family. Also nice privacy but still close to everything. Thank you so much for a GREAT long weekend.

Reviewer Comments:

Enjoyable rental with ample space for 6 friends. The dining and living rooms proved to be our favorite gathering spaces. The kitchen was adequately appointed. The most enjoyed feature was the wood burning fireplace with a sizable wood supply! Delightful stay overall! Only negative to report were several slow drains in bathtubs.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great feedback! Fore Augusta has great open gathering spaces but then also nice spots to take a break in, the sun room, the bar area in the lower level, putting green near hot tub, etc. We had someone clear the drains and all is good now. You'll love your stay here!

This property was perfect for our family!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented through this management company last year, so felt confident in the selection of this property. We walked in and right away it felt great. It was clean and very comfortable! It was even better than we expected! The kitchen was very well equipped, and plenty of seating in the family room and around the kitchen table. We will definitely rent this house again. The hot tub was great!

Thanks Abby for all your assistance!

Augusta Fore was absolutely amazing! The house was beautiful and well kept. the enclosed patio as an added bonus! We didn't have to worry about running out of dishes. They had everything from serving dishes to beautiful wine glasses. The bedrooms were super cozy! I will be going back next year and the year after! Thank you to Abbey, who made the rental process easy! Thank you to the owners for opening your home to us! I highly recommend this vacation home to anyone that wants to get away but still have the comforts of home!

Map

This luxury five bedroom vacation home is located in the heart of the picturesque 6800-acre Galena Territory, a pristine area of abundant wildlife and rolling hills that stands apart from the normally flat landscape of Illinois. Within walking distance (although hilly) from the home is the Territory Owners Club facility, with a new indoor pool, a newly updated outdoor pool, game room, fitness center, basketball court, tennis courts and children's playground. Just a minute down the road our guests can fish or boat on the 220-acre private Lake Galena. Also just minutes from the home in the Galena Territory lies the Ridge Golf Club and Spa, boasting 63 holes of championship golf and a world class spa facility. The home borders one of the Territory's 40 miles of hiking trails, a great way to conveniently experience the beauty of the Territory up close. Just a short ride down Route 20 lies the historic city of Galena, a great destination for shopping and eating.

Other activities: boating, health/beauty spa, miniature golf, cross country skiing, basketball court, shopping, kayaking, wild life viewing, hot air ballooning

Golf: 3 options all very close by

Ski: Chestnut Mountain and Sundown Mountain both within minutes
