Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, Sleeps 14

This two acre private and secluded property is ideally situated in the beautiful Galena Territory. We built this house in 2007 as a vacation home for our family. We've had many wonderful weekends there and we'd love to share it with you.

There are hardly any nearby homes and the house is shielded by mature trees. The hot tub is nicely tucked away in the back of the house and protected by a retaining wall. Enjoy your 2 acres of Galena Territory.

This is the perfect setting for any group gathering. We've had wedding parties, reunions, birthday parties, anniversaries, corporate retreats, girls and guys weekends out, golf outings, and simple getaways for the family.

Right in the middle of The Galena Territories, minutes to Golf Courses, restaurant, spa and General Store. Head into Galena to enjoy shopping, spas or golf at the Galena Golf Club.

This is a property in the Shenandoah section of the Galena Territory. The riding and boarding stables are only 1 mile away!

Brand New Indoor and Outdoor Pools (seasonally) are OPEN! Fitness center, indoor basketball, snack bar and so much more are also available for our guests.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was perfect for our family in regards to sleeping. The only con about the area was there was the internet was spotty. So we couldn't stream movies and the dish only had like 4 channels. There were NO games/DVDs in the house---so make sure to bring your own if you want to entertain little ones at the end of the day. We had several kids with us, which I thought could be boring since Galena is known for shopping etc. We spent an entire day at Chestnut Mountain doing the activities there. Sculpture Garden was really cool. We even met the gentleman that does the sculpting. We were there for probably an hour. We hung out at the owners club in the pools etc. It was perfect for a family reunion.

Owner's Response: So glad the girls had fun but call us about the hot tub next time! We use a hot tub tech in the area and have someone on call 24 hours so always call us with any issues. We never heard a peep from the girls and wish they would have called us so we could help!

Reviewer Comments:

Our Church Ladies retreat was a success in part to this wonderful house! There was plenty of beds and sitting and dining space. The kitchen had everything we could have needed to make meals and serve all our ladies. We absolutely loved the scenery and the walking paths. The best part of our morning was as we were sitting on the deck talking, a hot air balloon passed right over us! Lots of activities to do near the house and a short drive to Galena. We would definitely book this house in the futures!

Reviewer Comments:

We celebrated my parents 50th Anniversary all together at this rental. I would definitely recommend it. The only thing that was disappointing was how dirty the hot tub was and the grill. Even with a call in to management this was not taken care of during our stay.

Reviewer Comments:

I threw a bachelorette party at this house for 12 people and it was perfect for our group! Every bedroom had its own bathroom, which was ideal for a large group of girls. The house was clean with many large tables for playing games and hanging out at. The grounds were beautiful and we really enjoyed sitting in the hot tub at night. The only downside was the trash situation; with this large of a group we had plenty of garbage at the end, but the house can only take 2 garbage bins full and you need to get rid of the remainder yourself.
