The space
Set in one of Northern Illinois’ most beautiful and secluded locales, the 6,800-acre Galena Territory, this townhome is located in The Galena Territory on the 10th hole of the South Course. Golf right outside your door, and when you're finished...walk home. The home has one bedroom and one attached bathroom on each floor, and has been updated to create a relaxing, cozy retreat. This home has been wonderfully popular with 'girlfriend getaways', golfers, and families as well.

On the banks of the Galena River, this town lies within a National Register Historic District and offers visitors a wealth of activities suitable for many different styles.

Our winter guests enjoy skiing, and Chestnut Mountain Resort is a 20 minute drive from this home. Chestnut Mountain Resort is a Galena, Illinois Resort that has all the amenities you've come to expect in a resort destination, yet its Midwestern roots and small town charm always keeps folks coming back for more. Chestnut Mountain perches high on a ridge overlooking the Mississippi River near the historic riverport of Galena. Nineteen ski and snowboard trails cut through solid rock bluffs range up to 3,500 feet in length and are geared to all levels. Ski or snowboard there, then enjoy your evenings by the fireplace and sleeping soundly in the quiet surroundings of the Galena Territory.

If you prefer to stay closer to your home away from home for your winter activities, the South Course is home to a Winter Wonderland Nordic Center, in which cross country skiing, downhill sledding, and an ice skating pond are offered. Rental equipment is available for a small fee and the Nordic Center is within walking distance of this home.
