The Oak Grove sets on 5 secluded acres near Chestnut Mountain Lodge (7 miles) and Galena Illinois (15 miles). The wooded area is all mowed and makes a pleasant place for an evening walk overlooking the river below. We also have a hiking trail that is mowed and maintained, but is not fully completed. Hunters and fishermen are welcome.

The space

This is our primary residence. We live in the walkout basement and you will have the first and second floor all to yourself. There are two large bedrooms with queen beds and a day bed on the common balcony area. The balcony connects the two bedrooms and overlooks the sitting room below. The bedrooms are located on the second floor so there are stairs involved. Each bedroom has a patio door leading out to it's own private screened balcony.
The main floor has a sitting room with a gas fireplace and two patio doors where you can watch wildlife in the yard. Connected to the sitting room is the dining room with seating for 9. There are a pair of picture windows looking out toward the tire swing in the fenced yard. There is also a large fully equipped kitchen for your exclusive use. We added a Fire pit for your use and will supply wood for your use.

Guest access

You have access to a large kitchen with a gas stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave. There is seating for 9 in the kitchen and plenty of counter space. Washer and dryer are available on request.There is free WIFI throughout the home.

Although our trip was short, Cheryl made us feel extremely welcome. She was attentive and quick to respond to my questions before my wife and I arrived, and the coffee & homemade muffins were a welcomed treat to get our day started. The rooms and bathroom were extremely clean, and the area was peaceful at night. Thank you once again!

My son and I were looking for a quick trip to Galena in between our busy schedules. Cheryl did a great job making us feel welcome. Communication was excellent. Wish we would have had more time to explore outside. Nevertheless, we enjoyed ourselves.
