This comfortable Townhouse is located on the 12th fairway of the South Course in the Beautiful Galena Territories.  It is a two bedroom, 2 bath town home located approximately 15 miles from Dubuque Iowa and the Mississippi River.  There is a small lake in the resort where you can rent a small fishing boat or a small pontoon boat for a leisurely ride.  The Owner’s Club offers a game room, small snack bar, a large pool and deck area (new pools coming May 2012), along with tennis courts, and a child’s play area.  It also offers a fitness center (daily fee).  The Shenandoah Riding Center is also available for trail rides and lessons.

Galena Illinois is the 2nd most visited location in the state (2nd only to Chicago).  At one time, Galena was the commercial giant of Illinois, and the Steamboat Capital of the Old Northwest.  Today, it is “the town that time forgot” and much of its appeal lies in the Gothic and Victorian architecture of the mid 1800s which have been unblemished by time.

The Galena Territory offers something for everyone.  The rolling hills of the territory offer three internationally acclaimed golf courses including the challenging eighteen hole course named “The General”, tennis courts, hiking trails, boating, excellent fishing, swimming at the Owner’s Club pool, horseback riding and lessons, workouts at the fitness center at the Owner’s Club and fine restaurants for casual or fine dining.

Nature lovers will especially enjoy the countless critters that are frequently spotted in the territory, including deer, wild turkeys, raccoons and an occasional fox.

Also, the quaint, historic town of Galena with its exquisite architecture, unique shops and excellent restaurants is only ten minutes away.

Find the best of both worlds during winter at the Territory.  Even the winter months are enjoyable.  There are so many activities to partake in, such as sledding, ice-skating, hiking, ice fishing and cross-country skiing.  Downhill skiing is available at nearby Chestnut Mountain.  Afterwards, you can retreat inside, cuddle up near the warm cozy fireplace with a steaming cup of hot chocolate or relish in the luxury of an afternoon nap.
