We've been to the Belle Aire Mansion about 20 times over the past years. We always make it a point to stay there when visiting Galena. Not only is the place clean and comfortable, but the friendly Inn Keepers always make us feel like one of the family. this is the best place to stay in Galena.

Lorraine & Jan run a very nice Galena B&B. It's not close enough to walk to, but it's quiet and un-rushed about 3 min. west of downtown. Their passion and love of inn keeping is quite apparent and they go out of their way to accommodate their guests. The parlor is a nice gathering space if you have friends staying...

We stayed in the bungalow for a cozy romantic weekend away. Our hosts Lorainne and Jan were outstanding. The made sure we needed for nothing. The bungalow was beautiful, fireplace added the special touch. Cookies in the room every day, and fantastic homemade breakfast and entertaining conversation in the morning. We've already booked to come back again after the holidays....

The Belle Aire Mansion is a wonderful, beautiful place to stay! The room was very nice and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious! However, the main reason we would rate this a 10 is because of the owners, Jan and Lorraine! They are two of the nicest people we have ever met. They are so friendly and helpful. I had...

It was a five star stay in a five star town. Getting away from the stress of the workweek finds a place of rest in Belle Aire Mansion.

After deciding to take a spontaneous trip to Galena over Memorial Day weekend we weren't sure if we could find a place to stay. Having checked on the internet, most places were either already booked, required a 2 night stay, or over priced. We were pleasantly pleased when we found the Belle Aire Mansion had a room still available. The...
