About owner/property manager

Tom and I have traveled throughout the united states and abroad, we both agree, there is no place like our Galena home! We began coming up to this area approximately (5) years ago and we have always been drawn or ended up in the Territories, as the beauty is truly remarkable. We want to share this beauty and cozy feeling with anyone who is looking for a 'stress free' get away. Tom and I are still currently working and we use Oak Glen 12 as our 'retreat' from the everyday hustle/bustle. Enjoy! Tom & Pat Ellison, Orland park, il.

owner/property manager purchased this townhome in 2011

Why owner/property manager chose Galena

For the past (5) years, Tom and I have been traveling to this area and staying with relatives at nearby lakes. When we came across the 'Galena Territories', we fell in love all over again. Not to mention, Tom is an avid golfer and this is the place for that! I love the scenery and the SPA it's awesome!! We can replenish our minds and just relax. I cannot say enough of the beauty and charm, this is why we had to become owners.

What makes this townhome unique

Our unit (OG-12) is very well kept, because we love it up here! You will find warmth, charm and by the way we have great neighbors! Our main goal is to make sure that you enjoy this unit as much as we do. Our children and grandchildren visit and they love the unit along with all of the other amenities...swimming etc., we have a great time and hope you will as well!!!

Open concept, clean and so charming!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The condo was perfectly laid out for 2 couples, plus it was so clean and charming. We had everything we needed to utilize the kitchen and the bathrooms had all the products you'd expect in a hotel room. The location was a little outside of town, so it was very quiet and private. We lucked out will beautiful weather and could hang out on the deck, too. We will definitely try to stay here again.

Quiet and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a cozy and quiet place, you won't be disappointed. You can tell that they want their guest to feel right at home. They have thought of things like soap, shampoo, lotion, toilet paper, paper towels, just to name a few, for your use. I loved the time they put into folding the towels and wash clothes. Everything was so clean. There are hiking trails everywhere if you enjoy getting outside. Thanks!

Perfect girl's getaway

This property was the perfect home base for exploring and enjoying everything that Galena has to offer! This cozy and comfortable town home had everything you could possibly need, including linens, toiletries and kitchen necessities. The fireplace was an added bonus. I highly recommend this property and look forward to staying there again. Thank you!

Very relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for the weekend and had a wonderful time. The property was well kept, extremely clean and charming. Anything you could ask for in a stress-free getaway is there. The location is perfect as it is close to downtown Galena but also has all of the Eagle Ridge Resort amenities available. The owners were a pleasure to work with and we hope to visit this property again.

We are situated amidst the magnificent rolling hills of the 'Galena Territory', and 5 miles from the historic town of Galena. Nothing compares to the scenery and endless amenities. For the explorer...a short drive and/or shuttle ride will whisk you away to all that Galena's downtown 'Main Street' has to offer. Lantern lined streets are adorned with shops, antique stores, intriguing art galleries and aromatic wineries abound. Galena's historic downtown, was voted 'Best Main Street' by Midwest Living Magazine, and we sure can see why....

For the Foodie...Indulge in an array of delectable dining options and gourmet chocolate shops. Finish it off with a guiltless wine tasting tour; or enjoy from the 4 delicious restaurants on the Eagle Ridge Resort.

For the Diva...Nourish your mind and body with an array of blissful SPA services from the Stonedrift Spa (Located in the main Eagle Ridge Lodge). (Girls Weekend)!

For the Sports Enthusiast...Step out to 4 highly acclaimed golf courses, including 'The General', which is frequently referenced on Golf Digest's 'Top 100 Resort Courses List'. Tennis, horseback riding, hiking trails. If you are a ski enthusiast, CHESTNUT MOUNTAIN is only a (10) minute drive.

For the Adventurer...get a birds-eye view of the Galena Territory and beyond from a hot air balloon that hovers 4,000 feet above the ground! Explore nature's wonder at top speed with zip lining nearby.

For the Wonderer...venture across the Mighty Mississippi river to Dubuque, Iowa (approx. 15 minute drive) where you can explore the casino, seasonal festivals, a water park, fine restaurants, and all that the historical river town has to offer.

For the History Buff...Step back in time and visit countless historical sites. Pay homage to homes, monuments and tours which are reminiscent of the civil war. Tour General Ulysses S. Grant's home or reconnect with spooky tales of spirits from the past in one of the local Ghost tours! (These are a lot of fun)!
