My wife and I were looking for a way to escape the hustle and bustle of St. Louis to celebrate our wedding anniversary when we happened upon the Beall Mansion. It was superb!!! Our only regret was that our schedules limited our first stay to only one night! Jim was a fantastic host. We felt transported back to a different... More

We arrived exhausted and left totally refreshed. If you want to relax and be pampered this is the place to go. Jim and Sandy are the best. Not your average B&B. The word "elegant" definitely belongs in the title. Proximity to St. Louis is great and believe it or not there is plenty to do in Alton.

We stayed here for my 5th wedding anniversary. It was marvelous. We wish we could have stayed longer. The owners and staff were very warm and helpful. The place was clean and enchanting. The chocolate buffet was amazing. The only downside is that it's 30 minutes from St Louis, but going anywhere in St Louis takes 30 minutes so it's... More

Everything about this B&B is top notch. John and Sandy are attentive, inviting and never intrusive. The inn was spotless! The furnishings divine. The breakfast upgrade is well worth it. We had breakfast in bed one morning and breakfast in the formal dining room the other. Both were divine. So convenient to Pere Marquette hiking! We will be back.

The hospitality of the owners, Jim & Sandy, was second to none and the accommodations were excellent. A great way to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Upon arrival we were given a tour & history of the property and guided to our room. The rooms was spacious and clean. The chocolate bar and complimentary evening brandy were a very nice touch.

Our third trip for a weekend getaway because we love this place. The history and hosts are such a full experience. The owners are very enthusiastic and knowledge filled about the home they live and work in. Also, located near many pieces of Alton history and near Gentlin's (fantastic food). We will continue to return. M

My husband and I can't wait to come back again! The whirlpool tub was relaxing. The three layer feather bed was the comfiest bed I have ever slept on and our gourmet breakfast in bed was fantastic! We stayed here the night after our wedding and couldn't be happier that we chose to stay at the Beall Mansion.

We had a wonderful time at this mansion. Jim and Sandy are wonderful people! Our breakfast was delightful. Our bed was absolutely luxurious. The neighborhood was peaceful. There is plenty of off street parking.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Beall Mansion. We enjoyed the antiques and lovely king room. We will definitely return. Alton is a quick drive from metro St. Louis, but seems miles away from all the hustle and bustle.

My husband and I have been travelling around Illinois, staying at a number of different Guest Houses and B&Bs en route. Our stay at Beall Mansion was both extraordinary and a delight. The attention to detail was superlative, as was the service: we enjoyed amazing breakfasts, served by Jim wearing a winged shirt and white bow tie and a black... More
