~Walk 2 Downtown ~ Dog Friendly ~ NEW Outdoor Fire Pit ~ EV Charger ~ Private

Our Harrison Downtown Retreat is .5 miles from Main St. downtown Galena - just a quick walk to dining, shopping, etc. This home is Dog Friendly, Maximum of 2, pet fee required. The yard is not fenced or accessible due to the terrain (hill with prairie grasses). The neighborhood is safe and great for exploring.

Our Harrison Home is a modern 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom dog friendly farmhouse located in the heart of Galena with the feeling of country living. The home is less than a 5 minute ride to downtown or a 10 min "adventure" aka steep walk. If you can peel yourself away from the front porch overlooking the NEW Outdoor FIRE PIT you'll step into a large two story living room w/a wood burning fireplace between the living room and dining room. The skylights bring nature in and the airy rooms makes this home feel large and welcoming. Relax in the living room in front of the flat screen TV with Blu Ray and cable or play games at the dining room table. Step into the kitchen and be delighted by the galley layout with a NEW Frigidaire stove and everything you need or would want, coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave and ice maker. Step outside form the kitchen and use the gas grill and we provide the propane. NOTE: This home does have many interior steps, it may not be the best for someone with mobility issues. Upstairs you will enjoy the large master bedroom featuring a memory foam King mattress with private bath, closet and flat screen tv, this room has maximum light and is open to the living room below. The lower level features another seating area and a new washer and dryer in the laundry room. The bedroom has a Queen bed, private bath, flat screen smart tv for you to watch Netflix, HULU, etc. on. This home can sleep 4 people in beds, 2 on the sofa sleeper and then there is an air mattress for an extra 2. The home has occupancy for up to 8. Also the owner just installed an electric vehicle charging station for you to use mounted on the outside of the garage. This home has a steep driveway, we recommend a 4 WD vehicle in the winter and also please consider purchasing travel insurance. If you cannot access the area or the home due to weather there are no refunds. Feel free to use the one side of the garage during your stay.

Please note this home is not part of the Galena Territory and does not have access to the GTA amenities. Enjoy our Harrison Retreat!
