Essentials: Binoculars and telescopes
Located five miles South of Galena, Illinois, peaceful Tierra Linda is nestled within the beautiful rolling hills of Jo Daviess County. After an extensive renovation, today the century-old farm house has two guestrooms with private baths.
Tierra Linda has a sandy beach, a magic forest and a beautiful pond with Tortuga Island and waterfalls. We do not watch Tele-Vision in Tierra Linda, we watch Tierra-Vision. We get the maximum of what Nature has to offer: birds, frogs, coyotes, butterflies, dragonflies, deer, rabbits, toads, fish, moles, wild turkeys, morels, dancing grasses, wild flowers, bedding grasses, thunderstorms, colorful weeds (and not so colorful ones), etc., etc. We usually sit by a bonfire to watch the stars, the moon and the meteors. We listen to frog and bird songs and once a year, just around Independence day, we are invaded and surrounded by the surreal Luminaires (called fire-flies or lightning bugs by the unromantic). TierraLinda is Nature with an Accent.
Tierra Linda was created on October 27, 1996 on 11 acres of an old Midwestern farm. The farmhouse was built around 1870′s and the interior was fully renovated in 1997. On the second floor of the farmhouse there are two lovely guestrooms with private baths.
