Abes Spring Street Guest House

414 Spring St
Galena, 61036
Reviews:
A charming, cozy B&B in a incredible 19th century stone building! Beautiful, eye-catching original artwork in a variety of media can be found indoors and out, making for a truly unique setting. Everywhere you look, it's a feast for your eyes. Speaking of feasts: breakfast was delicious! Very reasonably priced. HIGHLY recommended!
My husband and I try to maintain annual valentines day trips to a Galena B&B. We tried different locations each year, and stayed here in Rudolph's Retreat in 2013. We totally fell in love with the place! It's so cozy, welcoming, the food was amazing and the architecture is beautiful! There's also a sauna on the property, which is so private and relaxing. Super clean room and the bed is so comfy and big. The bed is set high, which I love, so there's a little step stool to get up on it. The bathroom is a really good size. Though this room does not have a bathtub, the shower is beautifully crafted, with the most unique vintage style, tile work. What we loved most about it is that there is a private entrance to each room, so coming in late you don't have to worry about disturbing others. Charles and Sandy were so great too! We had wonderful conversations at breakfast each day and Charles made us an awesome cd of music for our drive home! My hubby loved Sandy's blueberry pancakes so she wrote out the recipe for me! Though I've tried making them, they are nowhere near as yum as Sandy's! We missed this years valentines trip, but plan to visit again this up coming February. And there will be no more B&B jumping for us! Abe's Spring Street Guest House is it!
We had such a good stay here in Rudolph Retreat! We decided to do Galena as a winter weekend getaway and after searching over 20 B&Bs, we read about Abe's Spring Street online and loved their competitive pricing. They only have two rooms available so we also liked the ;privacy of it. It's right off Hwy 20, literally right off of it, you pull into the parking spot and the steps to the guest house are right there. Pulling out of the spot can be tricky as you are backing into the highway but we did it just fine! The room itself was awesome. It had a huge king bed with a stair step on the side to help you get up on it (I'm glad it was there). And two benches near the bed, lots of windows to let in natural light and a separate seating area with a couch, tv, coffee table, small refrigerator and an electric fireplace. It was the perfect retreat from chicago. The decor is pretty old fashioned but not in a bad way, in a historic way, where you realize you aren't in a cookie cutter modern hotel. This place is great for people who want to stay somewhere extra comfortable a few blocks away from the Galena floodgates entrance and not worry about spending too much. The room was $110/night and it came with a full breakfast (although breakfast was a little early at 9am but it got us up and out of the room to shop/wine drink early :) ). Also, you get your own key like your staying in your own apartment! And did I mention there is a private hot tub/sauna room for guests only and since there is only one other room to rent, we had the room all to ourselves and bought up drinks to share and unwind after a chilly day of walking in the cold. Overall, five stars! Sandy and Charles are really sweet owners and they made our stay really great. Sandy's breakfasts are awesome!

Inn At Irish Hollow

2800 S Irish Hollow Rd
Galena, 61036
Reviews:
This place and a the people who are apart of it are absolutely amazing. Stayed in the Gardener's Cottage during the Christmas season and was completely blown away the decorations, the coziness and the service is absolutely outstanding. I have been all over this country and to a few other countries and still have not been able to find anything that compares to the Irish Hallow! My at the time girlfriend(now wife) and I plan to return ASAP! Thanks for the wonderful memories that we will never ever forget.
We celebrated our anniversary here and stayed at the French Maid Cottage. Everything was spectacular! Each meal here was a work of art and our cottage was decorated for the holiday season. Our wood burning fireplace and jacuzzi tub set the stage for an amazing weekend of sipping champagne and much needed R&R with the hubby. It was so fun to wake up each morning to a unique, home cooked meal. We also did the 7-course candle lit dinner and everything from the wine to the desert were outstanding.
My husband and I came here for a little weekend getaway. It was perfect. We stayed in the main inn, and next time (which there will be), we will likely get a cottage. The bed was super comfy. The fireplace was nice. The food was amazing. Everyone who works here is super pretty and sweet. It's an excellent little getaway spot. The only bummer for us was the weather. At -10 degrees, it's difficult to enjoy their 500 acres, but we are already trying to figure out when we can come again. We haven't even left yet.

Cloran Mansion Bed & Breakfast

1237 Franklin St
Galena, 61036
Reviews:
My husband and I just returned home from celebrating out 1st wedding anniversary at Cloran Mansion in Galena, IL. Cheryl & Carmine welcomed us into their beautiful B&B. We stayed in the Tower Room and the room was simply beautiful. The tower is where the two person whirlpool tub is located for the Tower Room. The stairs a bit steep and close, but using the tub was so relaxing for us, that it was worth it! All the rooms have a whirlpool tub, so don't let the stairs stop you. We awoke to one of the best breakfast I have ever had! When my husband and I came back to our room after spending several hours touring Galena, we were greeted to an anniversary card and cookies left in our room for us. We paid a bit extra to have the special "Birthday/Anniversary dinner". We had an outstanding anniversary dinner in the dining room, all to ourselves. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and will definitely be back again!
This wasn't quite as "out in the middle of nowhere" we thought it was, but as B&Bs go, it was lovely. Carmine and Cheryl are so sweet and understanding, it's easy to feel at home. The breakfasts are huge, the towels are soft and fluffy, the whirlpools are fun, we got a king-sized bed (!), and the overall atmosphere is simple and relaxed. We enjoyed our stay. The only downside we found was staying in the Tower Room, after reading the description, we thought there would be windows to look at the view. It's sunny, but the windows are too high to look out of. (This was definitely our assumption, though. In reviewing the description, it doesn't say "view" anywhere.) We really liked our couples' massage, as well. Cheryl & Carmine obviously don't do that, but they've contracted with two wonderful masseuses. Great job!
Last summer by boyfriend and I stayed here in the cabin room for 4 nights with our dog. Let me just say everything about our stay was FANTASTIC! Different breakfast every morning, eggs cooked to order, just delicious!! Clean room, complimentary soda, water, coffee, tea and popcorn in the room. Gorgeous gazebo outside, I could go on and on about this place. Let's just say we will definitely be returning at some point in the future.

Felt Manor Guest House

125 S Prospect St
Galena, 61036
Reviews:
Having never stayed at a B&B before, I was not quite sure what to expect. Well... I will say this: proprietor Dan and his girlfriend Lauren set the bar VERY high! We arrived on Saturday of Labor Day weekend a little after 6pm. We were greeted with chilled wine and cookies, and any place the greets me like that is ok in my book! The room was beautiful, complete with it's own bathroom! Stayed for two nights and it was very quiet both nights, even with all of the rooms booked. The food - outstanding! You can tell that Dan and Lauren put a lot of time and effort into the food that they serve. A very intimate dining room setting. The front porch is amazing - you can sit out there, drink your wine, and look out over the town below. I will warn you - it may only be two blocks off of Main Street, but it's 2 very hilly blocks! You can either walk down the street or you can take the stairs. Both option are very close by. This isn't a complaint, but I was a little unsure as to why there was a family with two small kids staying there, both of which seemed to be under the age of 10. I was especially surprised to see this considering the sign out in front clearly states "no pets, no smoking, no children under 14." I don't have kids, but I would not expect to come to a place like Felt Manor and hear small children running up and down the halls. I would say that it's really more of an adult place. The kids were a little loud at breakfast one morning, but other than that they were relatively quiet, so it wasn't too big a deal. However, Felt Manor is a fantastic place, and I would return without hesitation! It was very hard to leave, and that was largely due to the hospitality that we received.
We found a fabulous B&B in a small Illinois town called Galena. It was like finding "home". We love the Felt Manor! The views from the Felt are wonderful, the ambiance is fantastic as the rooms are all decorated in 1870's decor - ornate and posh - you can almost see the ladies and gentlemen of the era sitting in the front parlor enjoying an afternoon tea - or a cool refreshing mint julep on the front porch! The Felt Manor is situated high up on the town, and overlooks the main street(s) of the town. The steps leading up to The Felt Manor are charming, but you can access the Manor from High Street in the back - which will be easier. The Felt Manor provides wonderful service in the evening with a tour of the rooms and a good history lesson of the house and the Galena area. Dan (the owner) leads you on your tour, and also cooks a magnificent breakfast for you in the morning at the time of your choosing - we had Eggs Benedict - which was cooked to perfection! The Felt Manor has a seating area for breakfast, much like a restaurant, which is different for a B&B. It was actually nice to have a dedicated seating area, and breakfast that fit your schedule. The quarters are very "in the era" but the amenities are all modern. Almost every room has it's own en suite bathroom and air conditioning. The beds are extremely comfortable! The rooms are of different themes - we stayed in the "Susan" room - with beautiful colors and appointments. The views from the Susan room were fantastic, especially at sunrise. Our stay was definitely enjoyable, and we would come here again. We give The Felt Manor 5 stars! If you are going for a drive through Illinois, make a point to stay at The Felt Manor.
Excellent B&B Lovely 1850s house, beautiful rooms, great host. A memorable weekend all round!

Bernadine’s Stillman Inn

Galena, 61036
Reviews:
This was our first B&B experience and we were a little hesitant at first. Dave, our host, was great in welcoming us to his home. He went over everything in our room, we stayed in the Honeymoon Suite. Dave gave us information on places to eat and things to do in the area. We had decided to walk to town, so he told us how to find the path to the stairs on Grants property so that it would be easier coming back up the hill. I loved the hand drawn map Dave provided us and used it the whole time we were there. It was indispensable. Our room was a two room suite and is the biggest guest room in the house. It is on the first floor just as you come into the home. It has two fireplaces, two ceiling fans, and a huge whirlpool. You also have a semi private porch to sit out on and watch the sun set or listen to the frogs late at night. Other details of the room is listed on their website. Breakfasts were great and it was fun to meet new people. Talking to the people and finding out what they were doing for the day and what they had already done and liked or disliked was a great advantage for visiting Galena. Dave provided entertaining conversation and introduces all the guests, just like a perfect host should. The Banana bread was wonderful. They even made decaf coffee for me. Make sure you stop by the kitchen door to say thank you to whom ever cooks your meal that day! Dave's wife is in the kitchen cooking breakfast most days, so we don't get to see her much, but on our last day she came out to clean up the dinning room and we got to talk to her for a bit. I felt like I was staying with friends and I would definitely recommend this B&B.
I had some hesitations about staying in a bed and breakfast but glad we got out of our comfort zone and gave it a try. I wasn't sure about staying in someone's house and having to eat breakfast with strangers. Neither my boyfriend or I are super outgoing nor are we morning people so I wasn't sure how that would go. Everything was perfect while we stayed with Dave and Bernadine. We did eat breakfast with people we didn't know but Dave did a good job of introducing us to everyone else. Some mornings were busier then others but I never felt uncomfortable while there. Our room was spotless and decorated is a style of the period that Grant lived. It was a nice touch to staying in such a unique old town. Dave did an excellent job of suggesting places we could eat and visit during our stay. It was kind of like having our own personal guide to Galena. Every morning we could choose an egg dish or some other breakfast entrée. My favorite were of course the love cakes but grandma's banana bread was a close second. Considering the price of our room was comparable to hotel prices and included breakfast I would definitely recommend staying here while visiting Galena. In addition to that you were only a few minutes walk to downtown Galena and you got to stay in a beautiful old mansion!
My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon at the Inn. It was our first trip to Galena and we couldn't have picked a better spot to stay! Dave and Bernadine were both so warm and went out of their way to welcome us. The Inn itself is beautiful, and very well kept. Our room (we stayed in the Grand Romance Suite) was cozy and very comfortable. We really enjoyed the delicious complimentary breakfast and getting a chance to get to know other travelers, but never felt like our privacy was impeded upon (something I'd been nervous about, having never stayed at a B&B). We would highly recommend the Inn to anyone passing through Galena and we can't wait to return someday soon!

Tierra Linda

826 S Rocky Hill Rd
Galena, 61036
Reviews:
Last weekend we took a trip to Tierra Linda with our dog and had the best time! It's such a pain to find a dog sitter for a quick weekend getaway so Tierra Linda was the perfect solution. Armando was very accomodating and made excellent breakfast. He even acted as our game show host so we could play a board game! There weren't any other dogs there, but we were glad because our dog doesn't get along well with other dogs and they stress her out. For the first time, we were able to let her run around without a leash! They were lots of old barns and silos for her to sniff around. Armando even took us a little hike one morning. Armando loved our dog and took good care of of her when we went into town, which is just a quick 15 minute drive away. It was very convenient to have the farm house in the middle of nowhere, yet still be close to all the shops in town. 5 stars for Tierra Linda. We're definitely coming back.
My husband and I had a fantastic time at Tierra Linda. We loved swimming in the pond , our room was great, and it was fun to watch the dogs interact. Armando was an amazing host and we loved drinking wine with him and talking. We can't wait to come back again soon!!
This place isn't what it used to be, it's overgrown, there were flies all over the house, there was a dead bird in the dining room, puppy feces left on the floor and the dogs don't appear to be well taken care off. Let's not go into the dramatics of the inn keeper or that apparently fat people aren't allowed.... That's a story for another day folks...

Aldrich Guest House

900 3rd St
Galena, 61036
Reviews:
Had a great experience here. I stayed in the "RH McClellan" room. It runs $10 more than the other rooms, but it's definitely worth it: it's the largest one, has lots of large windows, and a huge bathroom. Get ready for some vintage plumbing: however, it all worked well with great water pressure. The way it is laid out gives you a little more privacy than some of the other rooms. Room was truly spotless, not a stray hair to be found anywhere. The electric fireplace in the room could stand to be updated, but I still enjoyed it anyway. Staying here, I truly felt as though I were on some kind of retreat, what a different experience from staying in an anonymous hotel room. It was exactly what I was looking for/needed. I'm glad I visited during slow season, and was able to enjoy a really quiet house and a snowy Galena. I can't tell you how great it was to be out of my highrise condo and in a lovely, old, Victorian home. Yes, it's decorated in Victorian kitsch but it's part of the charm. Owners were a true pleasure to be around. Breakfasts were top notch and well prepared. And, the prices here are very reasonable compared to some other places in town. I'm a huge fan...I'd like to come back and book the same room again.
This was my first b&b experience, and it definitely did not disappoint. We stayed over here for a night after a trip to Iowa, before heading back to Chicago. The house is adorable- definitely kitchy, but the innkeepers make you feel at home. We had the smallest room, but it really didn't feel too small. The breakfast the next morning was delicious!! Just a few blocks away from Main Street, this is a definite on the recommend list!
Doug and Robert are great and have done a tremendous job with the Aldrich House. Rooms are wonderful and it's all about the nice little things which they do a great job with. They are also entertaining and engaging hosts which makes for a fun experience. The breakfasts are delicious and drinks/snacks before dinner is a fun time. Would definitely recommend this to others going through Galena and would love to stay with them again.
