Hey there! We exposed the old original brick and hard wood floors inside. We installed an electric fireplace with a big comfy couch right in front of it. We do have cable TV with a variety of channels for you. There is a kitchen complete with an oven, stove, microwave and fridge if you are going to channel your inner chef. The bathroom has a shower and tub, and a built-in bathroom heater to keep it warm for you! This apt is above a coffee shop!

The space
This apartment has just been completely renovated. When tearing down walls, we noticed burnt wood around the windows and ceiling. We dug deeper and learned more about the history of the building. We discovered that it had burnt down in 1878 and was rebuilt in 1879. The owner of the building during this time lived in this apartment where the fire had started. The rest of the story on this historic apartment is in there for you when you book! Please Note: since this is an older building apartment does not have individually controlled climate but it is closely monitored by me (Jack) at a comfortable temperature for you! Note: You will hear noise from the street! This is an old building and sound from main street does come in! If this listing happens to be booked, I have 5 others in the same building that may have availability! Here is the link: Airbnb.com/p/galenaapartments (Please cut, copy, and paste)

Guest access
Anything in the apartment can be used. The washer and dryer located in the hallway may also be used. If the temperature in the apartment is not what you would like, since this is an older building apartment does not have individually controlled climate but it is closely monitored by me (Jack). I can adjust it for you over my phone. I have it locked since it controls one half of the building.

Other things to note
The windows are a bit hard to open, and they may not stay open with out something holding them up. There may be a bit of noise from the street. Please note: This apartment in not individually controlled but it is closely monitored at a comfortable temperature. The heat can be adjusted by the fireplace. In the apartment there is a book, please check the parking schedule in red at the top of the page, it will help you .

Galena, Illinois, United States

The town of Galena is kept in a historic look and city hall does a great job of preserving it. There are restaurants, bars, and shops only steps away from the apartment. Below is Big Bill's which is a coffee and lunch place. Quiet during the entire day so there won't be any loud disruptions while you are here.
