My wife and I stayed their the night after we were married. I loved it there and will recommend it to my family and friends. Loved the jaquzzi, breakfast in bed, and the way the building was set up.

My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon and first wedding anniversary at the Beall Mansion, so we recently returned for a tour on our tenth anniversary. Co-innkeeper Jim Belote was our guide, and we thoroughly enjoyed his retelling of the mansion's history and artifacts, and the role its family played in the development of Alton and nearby towns. Our tour... More

The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the town of Alton and the previous owners of the Beale mansion. The history of the mansion and the town was enlightening!! I recommend to anyone who visits the city of Alton to go on this tour. The tour guide was also humorous.

We decided to take this tour while on a Home away from Home weekend in Alton. we were pleasantly surprised to see all of the early 20th century furnishings and art pieces. The interior appears as if frozen in 1910. Beautiful...stunning...a must see if you're visiting the Alton area. Here's the bonus....it is also a B&B.

My sister and I toured the Beall Mansion last Friday and had a very enjoyable time. Jim gave us a lot of history on the home and the Alton area. The home is lovely! We would highly recommend the tour, or a stay at the bed and breakfast.

Great history on not only the sight but local and even touched a little on early American business. Beautiful grounds and home, hoping to plan a trip back for fast approaching anniversary!

Jim knows everything there is to know about the mansion he owns. He was so thorough and answered every question we had. Our tour was definitely worth the money.

We toured the Beall Mansion today and totally enjoyed the visit. Jim was very informative and friendly in his talk. The mansion is beautiful and elegant and the gardens are lovely. We all want to come back for a longer visit.

Took a tour awhile back of the Beall Mansion. The owners Jim and Sandy were very hospitable. I cannot believe the detail in the home, the ornate woodwork, chandeliers, fireplaces in every room, and beautiful furniture. This home was built around the turn of the century (1900). This would definitely be a place to stay for a truly unique evening.... More

My friend and I highly recommend the Beall Mansion Tour. The home is unbelievably beautiful. This was the high-lite of our trip. We were not able to spend a night there, but if you have the opportunity take it, you will not regret it. Thank you so much. You can feel the joy that lingers in the house, such a... More
