What a wonderful place to stay for a weekend! Connie and Gary were excellent hosts, accommodating our every need, including helping our 12-year-old be as comfortable as possible when he wasn't feeling well. The rooms were clean and roomy, and the bed linens and towels were top-of-the line and incredibly soft. The food was so tasty and plentiful that we...

My sister and I stayed for a night at The Green Tree Inn in Elsah; I wish it had been more! The town of Elsah is an historical gem-- full of charm and beauty and on the National Register of Historic places -- in its entirety! The inn itself is tastefully decorated, well-appointed and comfortable, and has a friendly and...

Having been on the road home for several days, we decided to look for something different from the expensive downtown hotels and the cookie-cutter hotels just off the interstate that we had been using. We were fortunate to find the Green Tree Inn and it was exactly what we needed. Although it looks old, it was built in the 1990's....

So happy that you found our B&B and our adorable village and that it meet your needs for a relaxing evening. It was my pleasure to visit with you over breakfast.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Green Tree Inn and it was a delightful experience. Connie and Gary (the owners) are incredibly gracious hosts.

So happy we got to be a positive part of your college tour. Depending on the college choice, hopefully we will have an opportunity to host your family again. We love it when we get to know families well during their child's 4 year college career. We appreciate the kind words and your time in doing a review.

We love it when guests choose Green Tree Inn to celebrate birthdays. I love having the opportunity to surprise them with their favorite kind of cake. With all the craziness in the world, it is nice to be able to focus on small things that make people smile.

We stayed here during the Christmas holidays and a lot of the homes were open to visit. ( From the 1800's ). Also had horse and buggy rides for free to take you around town. The room at the inn was great and the Host and Hostess were very nice people
