The space
Our Space- The main floor welcomes you into the living room, dining room and kitchen with an open floor plan. Two bedrooms, one with a king bed and a second with a bunk bed (twin over full bed), and full bath. The lower level offers a family room for movie nights by the fire or game nights, a full bath and bedroom with a king bed. Fireplaces are included on both levels. Gas grill included on the deck.

*****Please note, during Covid-19, the pools and indoor amenities are only accessible through reservations and with very limited times offerings.**** As mentioned, the Toasted Marshmallow includes six member passes to the exclusive Galena Territories Owner's Club, which includes both the indoor and outdoor pools, game room, state-of-the-art fitness center, tennis courts, basketball courts, kids’ playground, over 24 miles of trails winding through 1,700 acres of undeveloped, preserved woodlands and prairies, access to 225-acre Lake Galena.

Perks, Fun, and Other Things to Note-
Other fun that awaits you: toast marshmallows by our small fire pit (BYO-S’more supplies), play corn hole, ladder golf, countless board games, DVDs, kid's sprinkler and more. We strive to make your trip enjoyable, memorable, and easy (with easy self-check-in)!

We value family and have included a pack-n-play and sheet, high chair, toddler dishes and cups, a padded guard rail for the fireplace hearth, and baby gate for your convenience. Traveling with littles is hard. We try to make it a tad bit easier.
