This is an old house that was built by Mr Aldrich and has been kept nice. Lots of history here. Great place to stay.

Great way to celebrate a 43rd anniversary

Pros: Character and its history
Cons: The improvements have been done!!
Location: Walking distance to downtown with its many wonderful restaurants and shops of all types to please everyone. Dinner theaters, tours, etc. available.
We had wonderful stay at a very nice B&B in Galena, IL. The house is very well taken care of and filled with history from the past 170 years. The hosts were very friendly and were willing to spend time telling of the history as long as we were willing to listen. They also suggested another house to visit that was also rich in past history that was owned by the state and open to tours. There was always refreshments available as well as lite snack in the afternoon or evening. In the morning we were served a very tasty breakfast. This is B&B that is worthy of a repeat and one to recommend to our many friends!

Thanks so much for visiting with us and for sharing your excellent review! We're pleased that you enjoyed yourselves as much as you did from the decor to the history as well as the food and mostly the intuitive yet unobtrusive service that we pride ourselves on. All of these combine to create the next generation of bed and breakfasts and we are looking forward to seeing you both again soon! Robert and Douglas
