What will you do first when you arrive at this welcoming 4 bedroom retreat in the Shenandoah Valley of the Galena Territory? We recommend you kick back with a glass of wine in front of the floor to ceiling stone wood burning fireplace or perhaps you'd rather a bonfire on the front patio? If there's snow, the kids can slide down the small hill off the patio, trust us, it's a hoot! The house comes with an fully equipped, open concept kitchen, laundry, dining room and living room with a 55' tv on the 1st floor so everyone can join the festivities. A gas barbecue is a step away out the back patio overlooking the extensive gardens, meadow & nature trails. The master king suite with whirlpool, walk-in shower and a 2nd queen bedroom & bath are also on the 1st floor. Downstairs the fun continues with a family room, 60' tv and 8' pool table. A walk out patio with access to the hot tub and 2 queen bedrooms, 2 baths finish the downstairs. This house is perfect for a golf getaway, a family retreat or just a relaxing time away. You'll be close enough to enjoy all that the Galena area has to offer from skiing at Chestnut Mt. to horseback riding to exploring historic Galena or golfing at one of the premier area courses but you'll have the comforts of Sugarcreek to return to and enjoy. We're new to the VRBO world but encourage you to contact us if you have specific needs (ex.check in/out times), we want to work with you to make your Galena stay memorable.

Our family has been traveling to the Galena area for over 18 years from the northern suburbs of Chicago. We built this home as a getaway from the city & suburbs. A place our kids could explore (nature trails, horses, stars at night, skiing, golf, fishing) and be kids. Something that's hard to do in the city. But we didn't ignore us adults! From golf to canoeing to exploring area wineries to trying one of the many restaurants downtown Galena has to offer, we've had lots of fun. We're renting Sugarcreek because we've built a new home on a larger lot: new views & new gardens!
Debbie purchased this house in 2008
We stayed at many homes & condos during our visits to Galena and always dreamed of building a getaway home in the area. We wanted a place perfect for the family, for the guys golf weekend or for friends to visit. The Sugarcreek valley is a quiet 1 mile circle that provides that relaxing feel with all the amenities minutes away. The house was built specifically to take advantage of the blue skies, native meadows and ridges that encircle the house. With numerous patios & deck you can enjoy the outside world at any time of day. The hot tub is situated among the rocks and plantings of the gorgeous garden, another favorite activity. There's something to see from every window, from every deck chair.
What we love about Sugarcreek? It depends on who you ask? Our teens & friends love the pool table & huge TV in the basement (we love the glass door we installed to block noise from those teens!) or when they were little they loved sledding down the small hill in the front. The guy guests love the pool table, walk-out basement, the fire pit out front and the incredible golf courses. As a mom & hostess I enjoy the open concept kitchen so I can cook & kibbitz with guests. The raised hearth fireplace is a favorite spot to sit or the rockers on the front porch are perfect for morning coffee. Everyone loves the welcoming feeling you get as soon as you walk in the door. Galena Myth: we were told years ago that there are few mosquito's in Galena. Unbelievable we thought, perhaps its due to the abundant birds & bats but there really are few to no mosquito's. At least at Sugarcreek!
Just got home from a four night Galena getaway at this beautiful home. Our family ( which included a 19 and 16 year old), couldn't have chosen a better place. All the previous reviews are spot-on, as this home is beautifully decorated, spacious, comfortable, well-stocked, beautifully landscaped, etc. etc. The owner was great to work with from start to finish, and the info-binder provided at the home was a great touch. The hot tub, pool table, fireplace, and four bathroom combination put this home way ahead of other competition in the Territory. We all agreed that the next time we stay in Galena we would definitely look to rent this home again! Thank you Debbie for some incredible memories.
Our adult family had a great time with the fireplaces in and outside along with the hot tub. The two living areas and 4 bedrooms were so comfortable. We loved riding and watching the horses hobby the path. You will love it!
This was our 5th year for our annual girls Galena getaway weekend and by far our favorite house. The decor was really nice, all the finishes were beautiful. The layout was awesome for relaxation and catching up. The hot tub and stone work outside is very nice. We loved that the house is so green and environmentally friendly.
Our family planned this weekend to spend quality time together in Galena in a single house. This house exceeded our expectations. It was beautifully decorated, clean, well stocked with things you need for daily living, and spacious. There was more than enough room for our 8 person group. We enjoyed the decks, fire pits, hot tub, pool table, and common living space. The owners for very attentive and easy to reach with questions. We are grateful that we found ourselves in such a nice place!!! Thanks to the great owners.
I don't even know where to begin. From booking to trip ending, Debbie had been so helpful in answering any and all questions we had. The house itself is amazing, extra linens, towels everywhere. The kitchen has a ton of supplies like condiments etc. TVs everywhere, pool table, and lots of sitting areas. It was perfect for our girls get away. It couldn't have been better
Beautiful, well equipped home with gorgeous views out all windows. More than enough space for 6 adults and two little ones for a weekend visit to one of our favorite vacation destinations, Galena, IL. The owners are so conscientious about resolving any concerns. This is the perfect rental!
