After reading the reviews for the Belle Aire Mansion, my husband and I chose to stay here for our visit to Galena and we were looking forward to our stay. However, it failed to live up to our expectations. The host and hostess are the sweetest, most well meaning couple, yet their property left much to be desired. Our first impression was a driveway in disrepair and neglected landscaping. After meeting our hosts Lorraine and Jan, I so wanted to love the place, but I couldn’t. There was a hint of an odor which could have been from their dog, or from the stained carpeting on the stairs leading to our second floor room. We were shown the Canopy room where we were supposed to stay, but the bed was quite noisy. Fortunately, the Garden Suite was available so we moved next door. The best part of our stay was the ample space in our suite, however, the shower had some staining and the cold water lever was difficult to regulate. Our hosts were very sweet and social and our breakfast was good, but the whole place needs SO much work. They are in their seventies and doing all the cleaning and maintenance themselves, so I think they are overwhelmed. The place is for sale, and it has plenty of potential. I hope they can find a new owner that can restore it to a more fitting and attractive condition.

The owners/hosts, "Aunt" Lorraine and Jan, immediately made us feel so welcome and at home. My wife said that she felt like she was walking into her own aunt's home. The "Canopy Room" was so perfect for anniversary escape. We felt so relaxed we spent one afternoon playing cards on the veranda. The breakfast was very good! But, more than that, the conversation with the owners and the other patrons at breakfast was so uplifting.

My husband and I visited The Belle Aire Mansion this weekend. Lorraine and Jan were wonderful hosts, they went out of their way to accommodate us and made us feel right at home. It was very nice, we were the only guests in the house. The mansion is in a quaint farmland setting which was perfect, serene and relaxing, just a couple of minute drive from the town. Lorraine and Jan were so gracious to alter the breakfast around our special holiday diet. It was wonderful and just what we needed. we sat around the table and had many enjoyable discussion. We loved our morning coffee on the country side porch. Oh! I forgot, the fresh baked cookies in our room are amazing!!! Breezy and charming! Many spacious room in the Mansion, well decorated. If you are looking for a peaceful setting away from the crowd. This is the place. Just a wonderful stay!!!

We stayed in the Canopy Suite which was incredibly comfortable and relaxing to be in. The room was large with a fireplace and Jacuzzi tub and a very comfortable bed. The room was clean and the décor was very nice. The bathroom was clean and a great place to take a shower. Breakfast was exceptionally delicious as were to cookies in the room. The hosts, Jan and Lorraine, were kind, helpful, and fun. We were able to spend some great time fellowshipping with them. Overall we had a wonderful time and the next time we are staying in Galena we will be doing all we can to book here again.
