About Joan Raymond

My grandparents owned a farm very close to The Galena Territory where I spent every Sunday, as well as many weeks in the summer as a child. I have very fond memories of the area! Even though I live in Colorado, we come to Galena as often as we can. All of my family still lives throughout the tri-state area.

Joan Raymond purchased this house in 2013

Why Joan Raymond chose The Galena Territory

We walked into this house and were impressed with every aspect of it, not to mention the incredible Burr oak tree in the back yard which was almost reason enough to buy the property. My family and I have rented houses through VRBO and Home Away all over the world and have become very picky about what we expect and we knew that this house had it!!

What makes this house unique

The house was thoughtfully designed for comfort, flow and entertaining. Every room has a great view. You feel like you are in a treehouse. The open feel of the home is accentuated with a different ceiling in each room. The center marble island in the kitchen evolves into the gathering place. The hickory floor, knotty alder woodwork, the warm glow of a fireplace and the sound of wildlife makes this a perfect destination getaway for corporations, family or friends.

Perfect for family time

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time bringing our family to this home to celebrate after Christmas and we absolutely love this place. Love the space which accommodates spaces for the kids to have fun and the adults to be together in other places. The home is beautifully decorated, the kitchen is my favorite and it has great bedrooms/bathrooms and linens, plus extras. It is well supplied with everything you could possibly need and sits in a lovely private setting.

We all love coming to this home! Thank you!

Beautiful and comfortable vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed when we walked in and things got better from there. We loved the open concept living area, the well equipped kitchen, gorgeous bathrooms and spacious bedrooms. We used and enjoyed the lower level game room, hot tub and wood burning fireplace on the porch. The cooler drawers in the bar area and refrigerator in the laundry room were truly appreciated. We have one minor suggestion to add an electric tea kettle. Maybe there is one that we never found! Thank you for the wonderful vacation opportunity.

Beautiful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time visiting Galena. This home was the perfect location for us to gather with family for a weekend away. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking to entertain a large group. So much space! And great amenities too: pool table, Foosball table, hot tub, large open kitchen. Would love to come back again soon. Thank you!

Exceptional home!

  • 5 of 5

This property is simple beautiful! Sparkling clean, spacious and open, decorated with perfection. The property is very "country", but close to the area attractions. We enjoyed the stay and will be back!

Beautiful home; perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully-decorated home is absolutely gorgeous and very comfortable, perfect for couples or a ladies getaway. There is so much to do right at the house (pool and foosball tables, bocce ball court, hot tub), that you never have to leave, but downtown Galena is only 10 minutes away and there is a lot to do there as well, including some great live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights at several places on Main Street. The home is located in a very quiet and secluded area. The large screen porch was our favorite place to dine and hang out. I highly recommend this wonderful home.
