Travelling Stories

Personal Notes From Our Guests

“Girlfriends Getaway! Our annual get together is always made memorable with the amenities of the Longwood property! Two bedrooms upstairs and three bedrooms on the lower level allows privacy for each guest when we are not hanging out on the spacious main floor. Whether we are making homemade pizzas and hanging out in the kitchen area or grilling steaks outside, we always have blast playing games and watching chick flicks in front of the beautiful fireplace enjoying wine! Sometimes we take a comfortable cab ride downtown for lunch and shopping and head back for some relaxation in the outdoor hot tub which is surrounded by a beautiful wooded area. It is only steps away from the house, so it can be enjoyed in any season! We love to wake up grab coffee and head down the walking path for a nice stroll which is just yards away. I can’t wait to get back there!”

“Not only was the home beautiful, tastefully decorated, it was extremely clean. That is a big plus for me. The hot tub was outside in a such a gorgeous setting, I didn’t want to get out of the tub. The bedrooms had room darkening drapes, perfect for vacation sleep in time. 10 out of 10 stars!”

“My husband and I came to your Galena property for an unexpected stay on very short notice. The house was situated in a wooded, well-kept and gorgeous environment. The home itself was like walking into a magazine. Everything was perfect. Just beautifully done in an upscale but still practical way. The Great room was my favorite place to just sit, drink wine and enjoy the view of the fireplace and the windows from floor to ceiling that made you feel like you were sitting among the trees. Everything we could have needed was provided down to the corkscrew for our wine. The pool table was fun to have available as was the spacious jetted hot tub in the master bathroom. We have dreamed of going back when we had more time to stay and enjoy more of the amenities on property like golf, swimming, etc.”

“We LOVED your beautiful place and hope to stay there again someday!  Our vacation rental was a warm, well-stocked, charming home in the Galena Territories. It was full of delightful amenities, including a luxurious hot tub and a huge fireplace. A lovely, private property, it was near enough to town to pop over for breakfast, and far enough away to allow us to enjoy the blissful quiet of the surrounding natural beauty. Highly recommended!”

” I’ve stayed in THREE of your beautiful homes and each time was such a full, rich and pleasurable experience. I would be hard-pressed to pick my favorite so I won’t even try. From the ease of booking, smooth check-in, comfortable impeccable homes, endless amenities, and easy check out, we loved it. I can’t say enough about our hosts either. Two thumbs up only because I don’t have more thumbs.”

“Staying at your home was truly a wonderful experience. A beautiful, comfortable home, surrounded by gorgeous and serene landscapes. And the space was just perfect for our business gathering enabling all of us to be part of the conversation while offering just enough escapes to have more private interactions. So ideal for our needs no doubt equally impressive were it for a gathering of family or friends.”

” I’ve stayed at these homes multiple times and each was a wonderful experience. The beautiful design makes for a perfect entertaining environment. These are great houses for family gatherings, reunions, bachelor/bachelorette parties and weekend getaways with friends. With downtown Galena not too far away, the Territories is the perfect place to stay when visiting.”

“The house had something for everyone! Large kitchen, covered and open decks, a pool table for the kids, bar and outdoor kitchen near the hot tub. Plenty of bedrooms with attached private bathrooms, beautiful vaulted ceilings in the great room with a fireplace of course! Plenty of parking and a beautiful wooded environment around the house. Love this place to get away from the city in luxury! Galena is just a few minutes away and has everything you may want to round out your get away.”
