About Doug Coup

We love our home away from home. Sometimes we never leave the house when we're there. Spending time with family and friends and enjoying the scenery makes this home very special to us. We invite you to experience something special, take the time and enjoy a stay at our home...reCoup.

During the renovation of our home, we stayed at our rental properties around the area. We took that into consideration when we decided to rent our property. We believe our house is very inviting and most guests are surprised how nice the house is, both the furnishings and the accommodations. We know you are taking the time and spending money on a getaway, our house is a wonderful place to stay. The holidays are especially unique at our home.

Doug Coup purchased this house in 2005

Why Doug Coup chose Illinois

We spent some time biking and golfing at Eagle Ridge. We just loved it. When our close friends invited us to spend a weekend at their house we were sold! The location is what sold us. See for yourself. Book a weekend with us. Check out Galena.org for an array of activities to suit all.

What makes this house unique

The house is private. At night it is so dark you can see just the stars. It's quiet too! Just the sounds of nature. The mornings are beautiful as well. We watch the deer come through the yard and then the kids begin to bird watch. There is a nice trail right off the back yard. Experience the beauty within the territory. Enjoy a bike ride, hike or horse back ride. Families enjoy the stress free walks around the area. Fall is the perfect time to travel into Galena. The trip and surrounding area is just beautiful with all of the color changes as well as a multitude of events that start in September. Hot Air Balloon rides are a huge hit!!! Better make reservations. Wine Tasting is at it's peak at this time too. Come relax and enjoy a long weekend, you won't regret it. With winter just around the corner, stay warm right beside the fire place. Skiing at Chestnut Mountain is just 15 miles from the house. Once the snow falls, kids can enjoy sledding and snow boarding right on the property. Relax every night in the hot tub while taking in the beautiful winter view! Our house might cost a bit more per night, but it is definitely worth it. You'll enjoy everything about the house. November Galena's Nouveau Wine Weekend.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 people that rented this property and it was everything we expected. The view is amazing and the house was spacious and clean. Everyone thought their bed was comfortable. The kitchen is great with granite counter tops and a large refrigerator. There was plenty of firewood and the hot tub is placed perfectly for the great view. Outdoor grill was clean and worked great. The property is resting on a hill and it is quite private. This property is also only 15-20mins away from downtown Galena and the drive there is great with all the beautiful scenery. We all highly recommend this property.

Very nice home

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home for a week. You immediately can tell that this was a very well constructed home. It has nice fixtures, granite counter tops, Pella windows, nice TVs in master bedroom and living room with Direct TV and Bose sound system. Additionally, the owner has take the time to put a nice book of instructions together, as well as things to do in the Galena area. Also, there are little placards with instructions on how to work the TV, DVD and Direct Tv. Very nice.

But the home needs a good cleaning. All of the fixtures have a film of dust on them. The cleaning service (Sandy) is very nice and extremely attentive. This means that the toilets, counter tops, sinks and floors are clean. But the basement had dead and live bugs through out. We were able to find a vacuum and clean it up, but that was not a great way to start things. Also, the kitchen cabinets and back splash had splattered food. Sandy came in and cleaned the cabinets. The refrigerator and freezer have significant wear and broken pieces, but they work well. The toilet flushing chain on the second floor toilet kept coming off, but we were able to put it back easily. The home is also missing an adequate number of hooks to accomodate 10 people with towels. Also, the home is missing wash cloths. The home does have a sufficient amount of miss-matching bath towels and hot tub towels. The furniture is comfortable, but the three couches are very worn.

Over all for the money, the home is very nice. It would not take much to make this home

perfect. I am giving it 4 stars because the owner and cleaning service were very attentive and tried to address the concerns when we contacted them. The home is priced right for what you get. The views from the home are great and it is 1 mi from the owners club which is very convenient.

Beautiful location, nice home,a few minor tweaks, but overall pretty satisfied.

  • 4 of 5

The home was secluded in a woodsy area and was far enough from other homes to provide privacy. There had been a lot of rain so it was a little muddy. The drive and walk way to the home could be graveled to make it less muddy. I liked the 3 different levels which provided my guest with plenty of privacy and I liked that the master was on the upper level by itself. There were only 2 rooms with queen beds, the others rooms had a twin or two twin beds in the other rooms. It might be a good idea to have one other room with a double bed for adults-twin beds are way too small for anyone over 5 feet tall. I am not sure when the maid was actually there to clean but it didn't appear that it was before we arrived. The floors were not very clean so we kept slippers on during our stay. There were dead bugs on the floors next to the tall windows on the main floor and even some in the bathrooms by the windows. The kitchen could use a good cleaning - the light fixtures were beautiful but covered with grease and dust which is not very appetizing while cooking a meal. The house could use some interior painting, there were many scuff marks on walls, especially at the breakfast bar where feet and shoe marks were very obvious. The outdoor space was great and we enjoyed many trips in the hot tub. The description said that the house was stocked with firewood, however there were only 2 logs in the indoor fireplace and all the wood outside was wet therefore we had to purchase our own. There were not enough chair cushions for the outside patio chairs, perhaps some were missing. I would suggest to bring your own pillows, the ones provided are old and not firm at all. We did have to go on a little hunt for towels as they weren't in the bathrooms as one would assume. There were also no washcloths, so bring your own. Each bathroom had a soap dispenser, however they were all empty. We were lucky enough to find hotel mini soap bars that were enough to get us through the few days we were there. One last observation was the refrigerator setting was way too cold!! Our salad fixins unfortunately froze overnight and had to be thrown out. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would consider staying at this particular property in the future.

Perfect getaway

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for a girls weekend getaway. The home was very spacious and the kitchen was perfect for our plans to "stay in" and cook. The fireplace and hot tub were also much appreciated.

It does appear that it had been a while since the house was cleaned. There were a lot of small dead bugs throughout the house, and the trek to dump the trash was quite the adventure. Besides these two small bumps in the road, I would recommend this spacious and relaxing home.
