The territory boasts 6,800 acres of spectacular vistas, valleys, prairies and woodlands. The Territory has set aside 1,500 acres of protected recreational land. The remainder is filled with low-density residential development and Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa. The Galena Territory was designated a Community Wildlife Habitat™ by the National Wildlife Federation in 2010. There are 1,900 acres of recreational amenities and Lake Galena for boating and fishing. If you love walking, there are about 24 miles of trails right on the Galena Territory property. Some of them go up in the hills and lead to wood deck lookouts with beautiful views. Some go right along the water of Lake Galena. Activities in the Galena Territory include zipping thru the canopies of The Galena Territory on Long Hollow Canopy Tour’s new zip-line course, or a leisurely horseback ride at the Shenandoah Riding Center. Or enjoy 63-holes of championship golf and award-winning restaurants at Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa. • SPA Need the next level of relaxation, you can make an appointment at the Stone-drift Spa located in the Eagle Ridge Resort main building. The 6,000 -square foot facility has certified and experienced spa professionals and 10 treatment rooms where therapies include couple’s massages, facials, and reflexology, energy therapies, teen and men’s services. The men’s and women’s locker rooms also feature state-of-the-art steam rooms. The relaxation room is a great place to unwind while awaiting treatment and the Spa Boutique offers the deluxe organic products for purchase which can be used during your treatment. • LAKE GALENA & MARINA One of The Galena Territory’s most cherished amenities is Lake Galena, a scenic 225-acre man-made lake perfect for anglers and boaters who enjoy observing nature on leisurely cruises. It boasts some of the best fishing in the area, with an abundance of small-mouth and large-mouth bass, walleye, bluegill, channel catfish, perch and tiger muskie. The shoreline is designated Green-space – land owned collectively by members of The Galena Territory Association – that cannot be purchased or developed. To protect the shoreline from erosion and keep the lake quiet, peaceful and attractive to wildlife, the lake is restricted to 10-horsepower motors. There is no swimming or water skiing. Two other special locations on Lake Galena are North Cove and Thunder Bay Falls Park. North Cove includes a picnic area, a small pavilion and barbecue grills. Thunder Bay Falls Park is located opposite Lake Galena’s spillway and dam. Hiking trails are available and fishing is allowed in the stream below the spillway. Two paths traverse the top and the base of the 17-foot-tall by 400-foot-long limestone retaining wall that leads to a popular observation point for a view of Lake Galena’s spillway. The Galena Territory Association’s Marina is located on Marina Drive and offers boat rentals and sells fuel and fishing licenses. The Marina features a well-stocked Bait & Tackle Shop for fishermen in need of live bait, extra lures, bobbers or perhaps a new rod and reel, and also sells pop, bottled water, chips, snacks and ice cream. The shop is open April through October. On the shoreline of Lake Galena, next to the Marina, you’ll find a number of recreational opportunities for family members of all ages to enjoy including a playground, picnic area, fish-cleaning shed as well three pickle-ball courts, a tennis court and volleyball courts. Other seasonal recreation opportunities include a badminton net and two horseshoe pits. • HISTORIC DOWNTOWN GALENA This Settlement home is about a 15-minute drive to downtown historic Galena. This New England-style town was recently rated #1 in 2017 by Architectural Digest for “Most Beautiful Main Street in America”. It was also listed as one of “America’s Prettiest Towns” by Forbes Magazine in 2013. You will love the quaint, mile-long downtown area with unique gift shops, ice cream parlors, artist galleries, craft stores, specialty food shops, and restaurants. There are also many vineyards to explore outside of Galena. See the "Visit Galena" website for more detailed information including a calendar of events. • DINING In Galena, there are many options ranging from pub-style burger places to high end dining. One of our favorites is a French/German restaurant called Fritz and Fritters. It has one of the best steaks we’ve had. The Log Cabin is known for great steaks as well (although at higher prices). One Eleven Main is a great restaurant that creates their dishes with food from local farmers. Durty Gurt's is known for their burgers. If you don’t want to leave the resort, there are four restaurants on the grounds. The Woodlands restaurant in the Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa has a good breakfast buffet and a stunning view from the bluff overlooking Lake Galena. We especially like the Eggs Benedict from the menu. There is an adjacent pub-style restaurant with a bar and large screen TV if you want to catch up on a game. Paisano's serves pizza and Italian sandwiches. There is another restaurant near the entrance of the Galena Territory called Woodstone with 2 1/2 story windows facing a beautiful view of the valley. • WINTER ACTIVITIES Wintertime actives include skiing at Chestnut Mountain which is a 20 minute drive. Right on the grounds, you can cross country ski, ice skate on the pond, or go sledding on the many hills. You can rent equipment for these at the Nordic Center. You also might want to go to downtown Galena at night to see the Christmas lights. Around the 2nd week of December, Galena has an event called Night of the Luminaria and Living Windows. The town puts over 5,000 candlelit luminaries lining the streets all around town and many of the shops downtown decorate their windows with Christmas scenes and live people acting out different characters. We do live 45 minutes away from this unit. We own a local construction company in Dubuque and are available at anytime for questions or problems if they arise. This home is located in the Galena Territories with access to the Owners Club, walking trails, marina, waterfall, tennis courts. There is a large parking lot for guests very close to the house! We do welcome pets under 25LBS to come along for an additional $50.00 fee per pet. Please contact me for approval if you would like to bring your pet that exceeds our weight limit with you prior to booking. No cats allowed. Any pets that weigh over our weight limit brought into the home without approval will result in a $250 fine. There is a pathway walking trail close to the home. The Owners Club does have brochures of all the walking/hiking trails. The water dispenser in the fridge doesn't work anymore.
