This was our second time to stay at Aldrich House. Our room was beautiful, clean, and the bed very comfortable. Complimentary wine and cheese were delicious and we enjoyed meeting other guests in the parlor. Morning breakfast was fantastic. Robert and Douglas were exceptional hosts, quickly seeing to any and every need. We have stayed at many B & Bs,...

Our first Bed n Breakfast. We were not sure exactly what to expect. We were both very pleased with our entire stay. Very friendly and personable hosts that made themselves available when needed, but left us to ourselves when we wanted. The breakfast was awesome. The individual plates were that of a very high end restaurant, presentation and all. The...

Had a wonderful time relaxing at the Aldrich House. It is located Close to town, the breakfast was delicious both days, and we enjoyed the wine at 5 that gave us a chance to meet the other people staying and our wonderful hosts!

I loved my stay at the Aldrich Guest House. My room (#5) was large and sunny with a great tub. I had a chance to peek in at he the other rooms and they all looked very nice. The house is absolutely beautiful and full of history! And the hosts were very enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge of the house's...

We had a wonderful time at Aldrich. It was our very first B&B experience, and we couldn't have asked for a better stay. The house was very tastefully decorated and spotless. All the rooms are spacious and well-appointed. Our room had a clawfoot tub which I took full advantage of (best bubble bath ever!). We also had our very first...

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.

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,...
