The space
Tucked into the rolling hillsides of the “driftless” region this beautifully crafted log cabin is an irresistible hideaway at the edge of the 6,800-acre Galena Territory. The striking Great Room boasts vaulted ceilings, plush furniture, a fireplace and pastoral views of the valley by day, or hours of stargazing through the telescope at night. Throughout the home, you’ll find unique pieces like custom log furniture, mounted longhorn steer horns and antler chandeliers that give this log cabin an extra touch of rustic character. Retreat to one of two decks for a steaming mug of your favorite hot drink, or a glass of the complementary bottles of wine. Each of the three levels offers a king suite with bath, sleeping a total of up to 10 guests. The lower-level walkout features heated floors, a 55” flat screen TV and surround sound with Direct TV and a second fireplace to cozy up to as you binge your favorite Netflix series, or gather round for family board game night. While the kitchen is the perfect place to cook a romantic dinner for two, the rustic dining table is large enough to accommodate the entire family.

Guest access
As a guest you have access to the private Owner’s club, which overlooks a wide valley in the heart of The Galena Territory and houses recreational facilities for year-round enjoyment. Rent a pontoon on Lake Galena, horseback ride, or hike one of the more than 20 miles of private trails. Be sure to keep an eye out for colorful wildlife from deer, fox, coyote, wild turkey, owls and bald eagles. The new Pool/Recreation Complex includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, locker rooms, a snack bar with indoor and outdoor patio seating and three pools. The outdoor activity pool has a double slide and in-pool seating area. The zero-entry kiddy pool has bubblers and a frog slide, and the indoor pool is open for swimming year-round. To round out your recreation options, the Owners’ Club has an indoor court to accommodate basketball, pickleball or volleyball, an arts and crafts room and game room with pool and ping pong tables as well as a video arcade. The business center offers a quiet retreat with two computer stations, plus the entire complex offers free wireless Internet connectivity. Outside you’ll find ample parking, two tennis courts, a basketball court and small playground.

Galena, Illinois, United States

Tucked away on an acre of private land and bordering several hundred acres of private farmland, this cozy cabin is just six miles from historic Galena, which Forbes Magazine calls “One of America’s Prettiest Towns” and Fodor’s Travel has cited as one of “America’s Best Main Streets.” Tap your inner foodie at one of 45 restaurants, or toast to great memories at one of four local wineries. Sample brews from the local brewery or try the handcrafted spirits from a local distillery. Take a trolley around town and soak up the Civil War history, keeping an eye out for General Grant, who often appears in period attire. Browse boutiques and shops along Galena’s beautifully restored 19th-Century Main Street, featuring art from local artists and nationally recognized photographers. Soar the skies in a hot air balloon. Hit the slopes or tear up the terrain park at Chestnut Mountain overlooking the Mississippi. Snowshoe or cross country ski in Winter -- and canoe, kayak or stand up paddle on the Galena River in Summer. Or tee up a round of golf on one of ten spectacular golf courses. Drive just 30 minutes west, across the Mississippi River to Dubuque, and visit the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, or try your luck at one of two casinos in Dubuque’s historic downtown. Catch live entertainment at the Mississippi Moon Bar, or knock down some pins at a 30-lane state-of-the-art bowling center. Galena County and nearby Dubuque have something for everyone and at this log cabin is just minutes away from it all, making this a fitting retreat for romantics, golfers, anglers, history buffs, families, foodies, girlfriends and nature lovers alike.
