About the property

Country Elegance And Comfort In The Galena Territory

This wooded, cozy, three-level townhouse is ideally located and furnished for your family holiday, your group's golf and ski outings or your well-deserved 'me time' in front of a warm fire with a good book and favorite classic movie. Looking down on Lake Galena, the Early Riser Townhouse sits just a leisurely walk from the General Store with its morning bakery items and coffee, newspapers, groceries & spirits. Centrally located just a short drive from the Owners Club, you have full access to newly renovated indoor and outdoor pools, health club, tennis courts, indoor basketball court, playground, billiards, ping pong and sun deck. Nearby you may also enjoy horseback riding lessons and trail rides at the Shenadoah Riding Center, rejuvenate at the Stone drift Spa, fish at the marina or just down the hill from the townhouse, challenge one of the 3 championship golf courses and discover miles of beautiful hiking or cross-country ski trails. Hot air balloons embark less than a mile away offering spectacular views of the Mississippi River Valley. And downhill skiing at Chestnut Mountain is just 15 miles away.

Decorated in the classic American Country style, the townhouse set-up is perfect not only for families, but also for groups who prefer up to three distinct private living quarters. The main floor has a master bedroom with a queen bed and full bathroom, sleeper sofa, kitchen, dining area, living room/TV area with wood-burning fireplace and balcony. The lower level has a bedroom with two twin beds, full bathroom, living area with TV, sleeper sofa and faux fireplace, patio and dining/game area. The loft bedroom has two twin beds whose bathroom has a walk-in shower plus another sleeper sofa. Amenities include high-speed WiFi, balcony overlooking Lake Galena, BBQ grill, lower level patio, wood-burning fireplace, washer/dryer/ironing board/iron, two TVs with DVD players (one compatible with European and Asian DVDs), complete kitchen cookware and accessories, a collection of books and DVDs, board games, cards and puzzles. The entire unit is fully compliant with Jo Daviess County rental regulations, and includes state-of-the art safety for your utmost peace of mind.

We hope you feel at home, and hope you have a wonderful stay at the Early Riser Townhouse.

Early Riser Townhouse In The Galena Territory
average rating of 4.9 based on 10 reviews

Relax, relax, relax.

Our family stayed at the Early Riser during the week after Christmas and we had a great time. Key pick-up was easy and the townhouse was very clean and inviting. We had wood fires each night and enjoyed several meals in the dining room. There was plenty of space for our family and we had a wonderful vacation. It is located close to the Owner's Club, General Store and Main Lodge. Galena is a short drive away. Will definitely stay there again!

A very comfortable surrounding for a fun girl's weekend in Galena!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely at the Early Riser Townhouse! Ron was a pleasure to work with. He answered all of my questions timely and even gave me his private cell phone number (which I didn't need but was nice to have!).

I enjoyed a long weekend in Galena with my 2 sisters and 2 nieces. Both of my sisters said that they would definitely recommend this property to others. One said because it was so clean. The other said because it was so homey.

It fit our size group perfectly! Because of the twin beds, we each got our own bed. And we were thrilled that there was a bathroom with a shower on every level!

I was also impressed that the townhouse was well stocked. Even though we brought our own supplies, it was nice to know that if we forgot something it was already there!

It was a nice distance from Galena - away from the busyness of the town, out where it was quiet. It was also between Galena and Elizabeth, as we went out that way also to enjoy a couple of wineries. We all had a wonderful time.

We didn't watch much TV, but my sister was happy we had Cable TV so she could watch CNN and watch the updates on a hurricane in Florida, as she has some property there. The WiFi connection was great, as my 2 nieces connected right away and had no complaints on the connection.

The townhouse was well stocked with blankets and quilts as we forgot to turn on the heat and it got cold overnight, so an extra quilt kept us warm. The townhouse was well stocked with dishes, silverware, pans, and utensils when we did cook a meal, even though we did eat out most of the time. The townhouse was also well stocked with towels and a laundry, which one of my nieces used.

I would definitely recommend this townhouse to others and would stay here again if/when I come to Galena! Compared to what we would have had to pay for two hotel rooms in town in Galena, this was a much preferred choice!

Relaxing girls get-away reunion

  • 4 of 5

Very nicely laid out townhouse--three levels, so we could spread out and have our own areas. Comfortable beds, warm and user friendly fireplace, well equipped kitchen with everything you would need.

Had some trouble with the entrance key but security and the homeowner were able to help with the problem.

Close to the General Store and one of the golf courses, walking path close by.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Overall we had a great stay. The location of the townhouse was perfect as we had several other family members staying an a townhouse close by. The layout was great for family to gather. The owner was easy to contact and quick to respond. We loved being able to have access to the Owners Club, especially the beautiful pool. Will definitely recommend to other friends and family!

Loved the layout of this home - very spacious - and the location - close to both the general store and owners club - can not be beat. We will be back!
