The Owl House, named for the frosted windows depicting owls, is a 1200 sq. ft. warehouse turned residence. Built circa 1880, it's been used as a commercial warehouse for several Main Street businesses and even as a carriage house. It's since been completely renovated as a comfortable home perfect for your visit to historical & charming Galena, IL.

The space
This space was converted to a home in the 1980s. Recently remodeled, the Bench Street level has an entryway, full bath, kitchen, living room, dining area, and another seating area that includes a queen size sleeper sofa. The lower level has the "rock room" which serves as another sitting area for reading and listening to music on the record player, as well as the bedroom with a king size bed and bathroom. Off the back of the bedroom is a screened-in porch and small, private outdoor area.
