B&B needs a lot of updates. Breakfast was good. When we were all eating breakfast the host and hostess sat with us. It was hard at times to visit with the other guests because host wanted to control the conversation

My husband and I were looking for a little get-away and we found the Belle Aire Mansion Guest House online. We are so glad that we stayed there. From the moment that we knocked on the door yesterday afternoon to the moment we gave Jan and Lorraine good-bye hugs this morning, our stay was just what we wanted - relaxing and comfortable. When we arrived, Lorraine and Jan were the inn keepers. When we left, they were our friends. They were very accommodating in every way imaginable and wanted to make sure that our stay was perfect, which it was! Breakfast was delicious and Jan and Lorraine were very cautious about meeting my husband's dietary restrictions - we had given them a "head's up" when we booked there. They did a great job! To sum up, we were spoiled!

Jan and Lorraine are the perfect bed and breakfast hosts, and to be honest, a visit to charming and quaint Galena (and equally beautiful Dubuque) wouldn't be quite right in a hotel room. A visit to this historical region deserves a stay in a Civil War-era home with hosts who can provide hospitality and information about the region. Belle Aire and its owners, Jan and Lorraine, fit the bill perfectly. I brought my laptop, intending to get work done—and I didn't open it once. It's the perfect place to unplug from the hectic world for a bit.

Wonderful conversation, a comfortable room (with a lovely shared veranda for morning coffee), and delicious breakfasts. Let's just say Jan is quite the cook! My partner and I felt right at home—almost like we were back visiting family. Oh! And they take Apple Pay and Android Pay via Square—I was the first one to show them how it works! So you have a range of payment options, from cash, to card, to contactless payment from your phone! If you're looking for a B&B with the charm and comfort of being home, there's no better option than Belle Aire.

Lorraine and Jan (and Jackson) are some of the kindest, most welcoming people (and dog) that you will ever meet. They've been at this for over 30 years and you can immediately tell they love people. They treat you like family and have a great handle on where to go in Galena. Breakfast was amazing both days we stayed here. If you are lucky enough to book a room here, you will not be disappointed.

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.

Room Tip: Two suites offer more room, comfort and quiet.
