About owner/property manager

Tom and I have traveled throughout the united states and abroad, we both agree, there is no place like our Galena home! We began coming up to this area approximately (5) years ago and we have always been drawn or ended up in the Territories, as the beauty is truly remarkable. We want to share this beauty and cozy feeling with anyone who is looking for a 'stress free' get away. Tom and I are still currently working and we use Oak Glen 12 as our 'retreat' from the everyday hustle/bustle. Enjoy! Tom & Pat Ellison, Orland park, il.

owner/property manager purchased this townhome in 2011

Why owner/property manager chose Galena

For the past (5) years, Tom and I have been traveling to this area and staying with relatives at nearby lakes. When we came across the 'Galena Territories', we fell in love all over again. Not to mention, Tom is an avid golfer and this is the place for that! I love the scenery and the SPA it's awesome!! We can replenish our minds and just relax. I cannot say enough of the beauty and charm, this is why we had to become owners.

What makes this townhome unique

Our unit (OG-12) is very well kept, because we love it up here! You will find warmth, charm and by the way we have great neighbors! Our main goal is to make sure that you enjoy this unit as much as we do. Our children and grandchildren visit and they love the unit along with all of the other amenities...swimming etc., we have a great time and hope you will as well!!! This is a non-smoking unit, please refrain from smoking inside, as their is an outside deck that can be utilized for this purpose. Thank you for your consideration!

Great Family Time

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and two kids had a great time here with plenty to do! We 'Foot Golfed 'on the East Course with soccer balls. A great experience new to us. Rented a pontoon at the Marina/ very relaxing/ took the kids fishing for the first time. Owners club had swimming, tennis, rec.room with table tennis and billiards and is very clean and inviting.This townhouse property is very well maintained/ clean and decorated nicely. Everything but food is provided. Shop at the Galena Piggly Wiggly and use the well supplied kitchen to save money on meals. Convenient to Galena downtown and Chestnut Mountain Resort for more fun- sleds, zip line- seg ways- river cruises. About 30 min to Dubuque, IA. Mississippi River Walk and more to do.

We will be back.

Great location and beautiful townhome

  • 5 of 5

Great location and a beautiful townhome. Very well taken care of. Plenty of room for a family of 4-6. It had everything we needed. We plan on coming to Galena every year for the balloon fast and I would never stay anywhere else. Felt just like home

The property was well kept and clean. A good value for the money.

  • 4 of 5

First trip to the Galena area. Some seasonal activities and shops were not yet open. The weather did not cooperate, it was wet and very chilly, but a good time was had and we plan on returning again. Next time I hope to play some golf at one or two of the courses at the resort.

Lantern lined streets are adorned with shops, antique stores, intriguing art galleries and aromatic wineries abound. Galena's historic downtown, was voted 'Best Main Street' by Midwest Living Magazine, and we sure can see why....

For the Adventurer...get a birds-eye view of the Galena Territory and beyond from a hot air balloon that hovers 4,000 feet above the ground! Explore nature's wonder at top speed with zip lining nearby.

For the Wonderer...venture across the Mighty Mississippi river to Dubuque, Iowa (approx. 15 minute drive) where you can explore the casino, seasonal festivals, a water park, fine restaurants, and all that the historical river town has to offer.

For the History Buff...Step back in time and visit countless historical sites. Pay homage to homes, monuments and tours which are reminiscent of the civil war. Tour General Ulysses S.
