Please 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 Since the exterior is outdated, it will receive a paint job in the spring of 2017. Additionally, since guests often contribute to cleaning in lieu of a cleaning person, or occasionally the cleaning person needs to leave for her full-time job; therefore, there are occasional times that the dryer will have a clean load in it. There are times that there will be a load of clean dishes in the dishwasher. If you have an issue with this, tell me, and I can make alternative arrangements. 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. If you do not care for a house with a slight musty smell in the downstairs living area, do not reserve. If hard water bothers you, do not reserve. This house sits upon a hill, and due to this, there can be seepage on the garage floor. If this 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.
