A wonderful, charming and relaxing location to take a break from life or to party it up. Walking distance is Lake Galena where you can rent a boat to cruise around, go fishing, or dock at random places and explore the forest. Fish (lots of it) from the peer or rent a boat, enjoy volleyball, soccer, basketball and tennis courts, as well as one of the best Golf courses in the world! Nearby is Galena town with its civil war-era charm, private wineries with wine tasting every day, local cheese makers, unique sauces, sweets, as well as antique stores. Fine selection of restaurants, from fancy French, Italian, to small town diners and burger joints (one literally called 'Burger Joint', its awesome!). About 20 minutes away is the Mississippi river and town of Dubuque. There you can find vegas-style casinos. This is a great destination for a family vacation, or just a friends getaway to nature. We can house up to 20 people in 2 houses that are next to each other.

NYE rental

  • 5 of 5

Arrived early and had no problems getting in. Nice house. Had a minor issue with one of the toilets constantly flushing but the maintenance guy showed up right away and took care of it. Clean and convenient house . Almost everyone had a separate bathroom with shower. Jacuzzi was fun. Beautiful views and trails right next to the house. Checked out the association pool with the kids. Loved it! Nice fire place. Very relaxing drinking wine in front of the fire place when the kids went to bed. There is free sledding within the association. Many amenities near by.

Wonderful experience at a great home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for an extended family vacation and had just a great time. The home was better than advertised or expected. We had 6 adults and 6 kids ranging from 2 years to 15 years. The house was in a wonderful, quiet area with an open view of fields and the blue sky (star-filled sky at night). It was in perfect clean condition with lots of space to sleep, rest, and play. The jacuzzi was quite a treat after a day out. The kitchen was well stocked and we were able to cook and grill over the four days.

The home is part of the beatiful Galena Territory and is very close to the owner's club where we enjoyed swimming and tennis, and near the lake where we enjoyed boating.

It was also only 20 min to the city of Galena, where we celebrated the 4th of July watching a parade, the fireworks, and enjoying a great Mexican meal and margaritas.

We would definitely recommend this home for any family or friends week or weekend outing. Our youngest asked if we can come back again next year, and we likely will.
