Robert and Douglas are wonderful hosts. We come often and love this b and b. The rooms are charming, well-appointed, clean and bright. The breakfasts are wonderful as well at the 5 pm wine and appetizer on the porch. Just a lovely stay.

Great location near Grant Park. Walking distance to everything! The house is clean, warm, inviting, relaxing, quiet and beautiful with plenty of spaces to gather with others or sit and read a book overlooking the gardens. The owners are gracious and accommodating. We've already made our reservations for next year!

Douglas and Robert know the fine art of making guests feel at home and relaxed. The guesthouse is very well located and within walking distance of the shopping and dining district of Galena.
