We had a wonderful experience here. Good wholesome people. Love to talk and serve guests. The lady bakes sweets everyday. Good family atmosphere. The man is educated on a lot of local events. The place is very clean. Located in a small town off Great River Road. The town is like traveling back to the 1800's located in between Grafton...

This was our 4th stay at the Green Tree Inn and our 3rd stay in the "Aerie" room. Accommodations are always exceptionally clean, but with no perfumy or cleaning product smells. The room is simply fresh and deep-down clean. All rooms are attractively decorated. We've found the Green Tree Inn to be a great place to stay when visiting our...

It is always my pleasure to host your family. I especially love that you make my poached pears for your family and call them "Connie's Pears". So happy that we get to be part of making memories with your son. We will look forward to your next visit, hopefully sooner versus later.

We had a great time. The rooms were clean, the food was delicious, the host were excellent, the scenery was gorgeous. We would definitely recommend staying here. Elsah is a peaceful little village that allows you to imagine yourself in a simpler time and place, and Gary and Connie provide a relaxing, restful environment in which to do so.

This bed and breakfast is warm, comfy and quaint. They make you feel welcome from the time you arrive til you leave. Warm, home made treats to a scrumptious breakfast and good advice for walks and shops and restaurants. They have bikes and hikes and a firepit. Enjoyed our get away and will go again.

I've wandered up and down the UK, staying in quaint, quiet villages and have searched most of the midwest for similar places for weekend getaways, but have found nothing to compare to them, until now. This BnB reminds me of the small inns in the English countryside. Quiet, peaceful, restful, and a dozen other pleasant adjectives that can describe perfection....
