The SpacePlease read before inquiring--
This house is the perfect setting for those seeking a wooded, low-key location—those looking to unplug, enjoy the surroundings, utilize the fully-stocked kitchen, and unwind with a movie to wrap up the night or to whittle away a rainy day. Being part of an association, all guests have full access to the Owner’s Club, which has an outdoor and indoor pool, gym, basketball court, pool tables, etc. There is a marina, in which guests may rent a pontoon, kayak, or canoe. Fishing is an option at the marina or other spots in the area. The garage is stocked with numerous fishing poles and a tackle box, which are available to guests. There is a riding center one mile from the house, for those who enjoy riding horses. There are many activities in the area, and those who need assistance with ideas, please feel free to contact me. I will happily assist you.
What this house is not—a resort. It is a house in the woods of the Midwest. This means there will be bugs when the lights are on at night. There is aggressive pest control by an expert who regularly visits the house to keep any issues at bay. There is NO WIFI, NO CABLE TV, NO INTERNET, NO TECHNOLOGY OF ANY SORT. There is an extensive movie collection. This house is not perfection, but it is very cute, cozy, and has very comfortable beds—think cabin in the woods. It has a laundry room. It has everything you will need to make a very comfortable stay. Since the exterior is outdated, it will receive a paint job in the spring of 2017. This house caters to those who are looking for relaxation, exploring, adventure, wine, cooking, maybe some shopping in a very casual, moderately rustic setting. If you have an aversion to the slight possibility of seeing a mouse, do not reserve. This house sits upon a hill, and due to this, there can occasionally be a slight musty smell in the downstairs living area. I keep Glade plug-ins on hand. If hard water bothers you, do not reserve.
If you comparison shop for other properties, you will find that mine is perhaps the lowest priced house in the area. We do not aim for perfection--our target guest is someone who is relaxed and enjoys nature or mingling in downtown Galena and seeks an ideal place to relax and hear nothing but peace and quiet. Guest AccessYou will be able to access the house from one of two code pads on the garage and front door. Interaction with GuestsI am very communicative with guests and will text to see if they are enjoying their stay. Please communicate any questions immediately to me. If you are looking for recommendations and such, let me know. I know the area pretty well. If you do not see something that you need, text me. I will help! The NeighborhoodIt is very quiet and peaceful. Other Things to NoteReminder: THERE IS NO WIFI, NO CABLE, NO INTERNET. This is a basic house. It is cute and comfortable and lived in. This house is in the woods. There are bugs in the summer and snow and ice in the winter.
My family and I have personal items in the garage that you are free to use on the honor system.
If you are looking for perfection, there are many high end properties in Galena for a much higher rate. We are not perfection. You are getting an entire house for a rate only slightly higher than a motel. Please bear this in mind when you make a reservation. You will be happy with your stay--just know that this is a comfortable, low-key house
