The Owl House

116 South Bench Street, Galena, IL 61036

Vacation Rentals

Originally built as a warehouse circa 1850, the Owl House has since been completely renovated into a modern and comfortable living space with industrial elements and charm.

At approximately 1200 square feet on two floors, the Owl House sleeps up to 4 people. With original exposed ceilings, unfinished wood flooring, and stone and brick walls, this house has character that matches the historical town around it.

As a tip of the hat to the civil war history and the nine generals of Galena, the Owl House features decor and artwork of the era while remaining luxurious and modern in a way that sets itself apart from other lodging options in the area. A stay here will result in a truly unique and authentic Galena experience, just steps away from Main Street.
