Overview

About the property

Upscale, Spacious, 5/6 Bedroom Contemporary Cottage with Superb Privacy & VIews

Imagine those charming Currier & Ives paintings of hilly countrysides. That's the perfect beauty of The Galena Territory. And there is no more satisfying and exciting way to enjoy this comfort and beauty than staying at Coyote Cove.

Luxuriously relax, anytime, during a fun escape to our lovely vacation rental home near Galena, IL. Every season is a special delight. Refresh in the Spring breezes on the porches and decks, play in the Summer sun; marvel at the festival of Fall colors, or enjoy cozy Winter warmth by the huge hearth!

Popular dates book fast, and it's never too early to think about reservations. Reserve your dates soon to get your first choice. A truly luxurious escape is when you get away while others work! Steal away for weekdays, too, any time of year. So, indulge yourself and enjoy much lower midweek rates.

You’ll be captivated by the breathtaking setting, casually sophisticated décor, convenience and amenities galore! Open-air hot tub, three large gathering rooms, big HD TVs, pool table, pub table, huge kitchen island (w/5 barstools), silky linens and superior mattresses – SPACE, COMFORT and DREAMY EASE are yours at Coyote Cove. There’s a big stone fireplace and hearth waiting to greet your family or dear friends! Multi-generational groups rave, “It’s like this house was made just for us!”

Excellent location! Coyote Cove is only 3 turns from US Hwy 20. And offers the closest access to Galena’s restaurants, shopping and historic charm. It couldn’t be better!

Seat 12 adults, comfortably, at the custom Harvest Table. Thoroughly outfitted kitchen is a group-cooking delight, down to the cookie sheets and cooling racks. Aromas of hot cocoa, warm cookies, cider … endless memory-making possibilities for all. Plenty of large, beautiful baking dishes, a big slow cooker, even a large roaster, for brunch in pajamas, maybe chili & cornbread lunches, and decidedly relaxed dinners! Enjoy easy access to the gas grill, with unforgettable views!

The large hot tub is a vacation all by itself – day or night! Giant, plush hot tub towels are here for you. Find action, friendly competition and laughter around the pool and pub tables. Catch favorite sports and movies, from the luscious leather furniture (adjoining media room), on the largest of Coyote Cove's three HD TVs. Marvel at the Vista Room’s spectacular views - Lake Galena, the glorious hills, woods and countryside. An ideal spot for reading, board games, playing cards, scrapbooking, earnest conversations and TV. The sofa bed creates a private 6th bedroom. The views, the views, the views!

Savor artfully inviting bedrooms (w/dedicated bathrooms), luxury high-count sheets and charming bedding (3 King, 2 Queen & comfy gel mattress on sleeper sofa). Excellent mattresses promise your delightful days end with nightly rewards!

Pool players, golfers, shoppers, fishers, nature lovers and sports and movie watchers, this is your dream-come-true home! Brand new indoor/outdoor pool, weight room/rec center and more at the Owners Club, first-rate Riding Center - recreational options for absolutely everyone.

Coyote Cove’s many decks, large screen porch and big yard are privately perfect! It is just 5 minutes (and three turns) to superb golf! Lake Galena offers fantastic fishing and small motor boating, one of three great play areas for the kids to burn off some energy, and tennis courts.

About David

Rebecca and David built Coyote Cove as their vacation dream home in 2008 to share with their family and friends. A native of northern Illinois, Rebecca chose the exterior colors to echo the lovely natural hues of abundant summer cornfields, and even the charming lady bugs she played with as a child. Galena Territory's hills, valleys and natural beauty captivate David, who grew up deep in the Ozarks. His labor of love was to select an especially scenic site, and situate the home and all its windows to capture compelling views of the surrounding natural beauty, while offering guests perfect privacy.

David purchased this house in 2008

Why David chose Galena

From the beginning of their Coyote Cove project, Rebecca and David knew they would offer this home for rental to guests, whom they wanted to enjoy its relaxing amenities and beautiful setting. Special attention was given to every detail of design, furniture and furnishings to attend to every need and interest of guests. The immense harvest dining table, comfortable bedding, plush towels, large rooms, spacious seating, abundantly equipped kitchen, endearing artwork, charming furniture, expansive decks, breezy screened porch and open air, open sky hot tub all reflect this passionate attention to detail.

What makes this house unique

Unlike so many other vacation rental homes that cram too many bedrooms into too little space, on small lots with little privacy and minimal views, Coyote Cove offers guests spacious comfort, privacy and beauty for all their pursuits all day long. Large gathering rooms on each of three levels allow guests to be together or apart as they need or desire and to pursue a wide range of activities and pleasures. Three outdoor decks, and a separate screened porch, expand these gathering choices. The large yard allows for more vigorous activities, and even the spacious, paved driveway affords ample parking. This eases loading and unloading of your golf bags, fishing rods, skis or luggage -- as well as all the bags of whatever you may buy when you shop historic Galena's Main Street shops.

Girls Weekend Away 2017

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I cannot say enough about this home! It was very clean, very comfortable and VERY well stocked with anything you need in a kitchen. We have been doing a girls weekend away for about 15 years and this is by far the best house we have ever rented. The owners were great to work with and very informative about the area. We move around and try to discover new houses and new areas to have a relaxing time away from the hectic schedules and demands of having a family and jobs. We will most definitely keep this on our list of places to return to in the future and would highly recommend it to anyone!!! Thanks David and Rachel for all your help and a great place to stay!

Great house with gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

The home is well-laid out and comfortably furnished, but the owners went further and thought of all your needs. It made for relaxing and enjoyable stay for all = ages 64 down to 1. The owners take meticulous care of everything. All of the bedrooms were comfortable. There were plenty of baths. They even stocked beach towels for swimming in the Association's pool. The stay could not have been more pleasant. Now we just have to co-ordinate calendars for another stay.

Fantastic house. Quiet. Great place to unwind and relax

  • 5 of 5

It's a beautiful property. Modern and in great shape with nice rooms and decks and a great hot tub. It's quiet. Lots of howls and chirps and stars at night. The kitchen is modern and everything works well. No complaints!

girls weekend success

  • 5 of 5

David & his contact made us feel so comfortable & at home. Every question/email/phone call was returned promptly within hours. Everything we needed for a wonderful weekend away was provided. We enjoyed the community pool with ease, took a dip in the hot tub & had enough room to relax and enjoy the house. I have ZERO complaints about booking Coyote Cove & would definitely book it again! Thank you David!!

Owner's Response: Your words are more complimentary than your stars, so I will focus on the former. :-) Coyote Cove is a great place, as our other guest reviews also confirm. Our team labors very hard to make it very clean for all our guests. For my wife Rebecca, it's a labor of love to stock the house with everything she imagines our guests could want to enjoy all our home's features, and prepare fabulous vacation meals in its wonderful kitchen or on its outdoor grill. Please come enjoy our home again.
