Enjoy a beautiful private 2 bedroom, 2 bath house with a spacious well-equipped kitchen, patio, deck, jetted tub, walk-in shower and incredible views all within minutes of Galena and surrounding attractions.

The space

This is the perfect house for a couple or small family that enjoys cooking and spending time together. Our large well-equipped kitchen is the perfect gathering space for family and friends. There's a beautiful private terraced patio steps from the kitchen.
The living room boasts unbeatable views of the surrounding countryside from all six windows, which leads to a covered porch where you can enjoy refreshing drinks while you prepare a feast on the Weber gas grill.
The large master bedroom has a private en suite bath with a large walk-in shower. The other bath off the hall has a jetted tub and laundry.
There's an office space that would easily accommodate a Queen air mattress that can be provided upon request at no extra charge. (So if you're not fussy this house would comfortably sleep 6. Please let us know if you require an air mattress in advance at no extra charge.)
The yard is beautifully landscaped and leads to a 5 acre field that you can hike and enjoy the views.


You will have access to the entire upstairs of the house. The basement is used for storage for things we can't possibly find room for, and it's pretty rough besides.

We very much want you to enjoy your stay and we will be available to help you if you have any problems.

The main attraction of this house is the seclusion, but there are so many things to do close by it's difficult to list. There are 6 nearby golf courses, many restaurants, all of Galena, the Savanna Palisades, Chestnut Mt Resort and the mighty Mississippi River.

There is no public transportation in the area. You will have plenty of private offstreet parking for 4 cars.

This is truly a beautiful house with lots of rich wood paneling and many personal conveniences. We have two televisions with satellite, wireless internet, 2 DVD players (one Blu-Ray), plenty of fresh linens and towels, and lots of kitchen equipment. We do not have central air. We do, however, have window units that do the job nicely. There are steps, and it is not wheelchair accessible.
You will want to grocery shop prior to your arrival unless you're planning on eating out for the duration of your stay. We have a large refrigerator and freezer that are completely at your disposal. Grocery stores are at least 20 minutes away.

Jennifer has a beautiful property that we're very fortunate to have picked to stay at. She was really sweet and helpful during the check-in - offered good advice for local things to try, and warned us about seasonal bugs. Very good communicator before and during stay. Home is very spacious and comfortable.

What a great place. This was the perfect destination for our girl's weekend. Jennifer was a great host, and left the most delicious bundt cake in the kitchen for us. There are many local eateries and bars within walking distance, and Jug's (local bar) is definitely recommended.

Jennifer was a wonderful host and very easy to communicate with. The home was lovely and fully equipped with all of the amenities that we needed. My significant other and I did a lot of cooking, so the modern kitchen appliances were a huge plus! We also stopped by Galena a few times and enjoyed exploring the vineyards and Helluva Half Mile (we recommend Myrtle's Pies!). Thank you for being so welcoming (the coffee cake and eggs were delicious!) and allowing us to stay in a home that was comfortable, relaxing, and full of personality. I highly recommend this place!

Our stay at Jennifer's place was wonderful. We were looking for a relaxing weekend, and this was perfect. Jennifer met us at the house to give us a tour and answer any questions. She gave us some great tips about the area. Despite our trip being fairly last minute, she had a homemade pound cake and a dozen fresh farm eggs waiting for us. The house itself is beautiful, and surprisingly quiet. The beds and bedding were lovely and extremely comfortable. We began and ended each day sipping drinks while sitting on the balcony overlooking the valley - I still miss this little routine we fell into!

We hesitate to give our review only because then everyone will know how amazing Jennifer and her home are... and then we will never get to it again because it will be booked! Seriously, clean, beautiful and jennifer is great. We cant wait to go back!

We have now stayed at Jennifer's twice and loved it just as much as the first time. The house is beautiful and clean, and complimented with antiques. Jennifer is a fantastic host who works hard to make everything perfect. We are planning to return!
