My wife and I were married in this Guest House in 1991 by a Justice of the Peace with the then proprietor as our only witness. We have been back to Galena, but never stayed again at this particular b&b. It was suggested that the Aldrich House might also be a good choice for my wife's annual sister reunion this year and it worked out great. We booked early enough to reserve rooms for four couples and had the treat of staying in the same room as our wedding night 18 years ago.
Fran and Brian were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were truly gourmet delights and both were very generous in helping us plan our Galena activities. The house is historic (Lincoln, Grant and Mark Twain all stayed here) and it is on a quiet side street within easy walking distance of downtown. The house is immaculate with much attention to detail.
This is a very special place for us, so book early and it may become a special place for you as well.More
