Rental Home
Built in 1856 by Asa Haile, a licensed riverboat captain and successful mason, this classic Federal-style brick home is located up on Quality Hill, where mansions overlook the entire historic district of Galena. A quick 5-minute walk puts you directly on Galena's Main Street, named “One of America’s best Main Streets” by Fodor’s. The front porch is the key to your stay at Asa Haile House. The view is fantastic, whether with a cup of coffee watching the town wake up or an evening sunset out towards Horseshoe Mound. Some evenings lightbeams can be seen over by Pilot Knob as a barge searches its way up the Mississippi River. No matter what the season; spring, summer, fall or winter, the porch is AWESOME! Inside the house is a culmination of love and dedication as Pete & Tacie Campbell to...

Some evenings lightbeams can be seen over by Pilot Knob as a barge searches its way up the Mississippi River. No matter what the season; spring, summer, fall or winter, the porch is AWESOME! Inside the house is a culmination of love and dedication as Pete & Tacie Campbell took ownership of the property in the early 1970s. Their influence can be enjoyed throughout the 2,700-sqf house as both were historians; Pete ran the Illinois state historic sites in Galena and Tacie was the curator at the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque, IA as well as working early on for the Galena Historical Society. Time can easily disappear while hanging out in the front or back parlor, or upstairs in the front room. The bedrooms are comfortable and a great end to your day of doing whatever… or doing absolutely nothing. The property is still family-owned by Pete and Tacie’s two sons and their families, with son Mike and his wife living in town. No matter what you end up doing (shopping, dining, antiquing, wine tasting, historic walking tours, river floats, winter skiing and more), The Asa Haile House is a great way to experience Galena and all of it’s historic charm.

Wonderful location with excellent views. The house is super clean, well laid out, beautifully decorated with lovely antiques, and screams of history. A great back patio and wonderful front porch allow for great relaxation. Easy access to Main Street, and all Galena offers. I’d highly...More
