Overview

Photos and Description of this The Galena Territory holiday house

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This being our second year working with you, I must say that the whole rental process has been absolutely seamless. My family really enjoyed the Powderhorn house. Clean and very well stocked, very roomy with alot of great amenties (pool table, hot tub, poker table, big screen, wide open backyard). My family would like to rent again next year!

We had a great time and the house was wonderful! Only thing needed was a better grill, the one there you cooked on open flames as it seemed to be missing flavor bars. We definitely will look to rent again next year!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall it was a big hit with my brothers and sisters. There were six couples all together and we all were comfortable and everyone liked their accommodations. Girls were a little bit taken aback by the population of the Asian Beetles and the box elder bugs that congregated on the porches. The girls also we're going to have a movie night down on the bottom floor but the projection TV audio is not working. However the hot tub was great and we were able to watch the Cubs game playoffs and everyone said that the overall experience was not tainted by anything that was not 100%.

Owner's Response: So glad everyone had an enjoyable time. Certain times of the year can be tricky in Galena with Mother Nature. Spring/Fall and extreme weather changes can make it interesting, just know the homes are professionally cleaned and vacuums are on the premise for your use during your stay. The projector issue has been resolved and the hot tub is always up and running ready for you to enjoy!!

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed her with 5 other couples and every one really enjoyed the home. The house was big and well kept. Very nice rec room with pool table and huge screen tv, plus the one in the dining room. A very nice large deck with great view. Everyone can't wait to come back. One of the coffee makers need a new top, and the bed pillows could be better, but we love the home! )

We enjoyed a 3 night stay at Powderhorn Gap. The house was clean which is a big plus. Having a bathroom for each bedroom was great and enough dining seats & space for our group of 12 to eat together was wonderful!

Reviewer Comments:

Beautiful scenery, nice, spacious living quarters. Tucked away in the hills, but not far from downtown Galena. Equipped with basically everything you need. Would have liked to see a garbage disposal in one of the sinks, though.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great feedback on our Powderhorn Gap Home. The Shenandoah Valley where it is located is beautiful and the 2 acres the home is on is a great space to spread out and enjoy. It's a great home with 6 large bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, outdoor hot tub, pool table, fitness room and much more. We wish we could have a garbage disposal too but the area the home is located in is on a septic system and it is advised that this is not the best setup for one. Thanks again!
