One of the best B&B accommodations we have ever experienced. Spotless clean, beautiful inside and out, perfect hosts, excellent breakfast, very nice evening wine and cheese offering, and an interesting history to boot. We are going back for sure.

Wow - I wanna stay there! Thanks for sharing your flattering review with us! As you experienced, it's a combination of a great historic house, renovated decor that is elegant yet livable, excellent food, and service that has been developed with nearly 45 years between the two of us that all comes together to put a visit at Aldrich Guest...

This was our first stay with Robert and Douglas at the Aldrich Guest House. Their home was lovely! Breakfasts were excellent! And both Robert and Douglas know exactly how to welcome their guests. Highly recommend staying at the Aldrich Guest House when you visit Galena, IL. It's also just a short walk to Main Street.

The property is beautiful! The decor has some nods to the past with nice antique pieces throughout the home, but we never felt like we were in a museum. Some pretty, modern accents are thrown in to keep it updated and current, instead of stuffy and froofy. The bed was comfortable (the mattress was a smidge squeaky), and we enjoyed...

Thanks for sharing your feedback with us! You'll never find 'stuffy' or 'froofy' at Aldrich Guest House! We keep it classy and relevant with references, not replications of the past history of the house and the architecture. And great ideas with all the different versions of the Dutch Baby - the possibilities are endless (send me an email and I'll...

First B&B experience and I will never stay at another in this area. From start to finish, this was just an amazing place to be. We came with other couples, but will revisit this with family & friends, as well as just the two of us. Would be a very relaxing place to stay solo as well. The history, hospitality,...

Great place. Great hosts. Great experience. Just spent one night here during our cross country trip but it was wonderful. The building and grounds are beautiful and historic. It's a small town so it's an easy walk from the property to downtown. Robert & Douglas could not have been more gracious and inviting. Loved our time there and hopefully one...

This was my first Bed and Breakfast experience, and I was not disappointed! Everything was so well kept and owners attention to detail was spectacular. Breakfast was delicious every morning, our room was cozy and updated, and wine every day at 5 was truly a treat. Having them give us suggestions and help us with reservations was so helpful. I...

It looks like you were able to experience so many of the aspects that make a stay at Aldrich Guest House one to remember not only for seasoned B&B travelers, but for newbies as well!
