This is one of the best bed and breakfasts I have ever stayed in hands down. I was hoping for a place of sanctuary from the July 4th craziness in my neighborhood and got that and more. Elsah is the perfect tranquil village setting and the inn is the ideal place to stay....charming all around. The owners Connie and Gary... More

By far one of the best b and b experiences I have ever had. Tranquil setting, charming inn, wonderful owners, and awesome eats! I will definitely be back again and again. This was the retreat my mom and I were looking for.

Located in the Charming, Historic village of Elsah, this B&B is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. The decor in our room (Meadowlark, 2 Q beds) was delightful and charming, with all amenities one might need. Room was immaculately clean! Be advised this room does not have a TV; however, we did not miss it. There is a TV... More

We've always enjoyed a day trip on the River Road. This time, my husband and I were attending a wedding reception up the road from Elsah, and we decided to spend the night rather than travel home late. We chose The Green Tree Inn and are so glad we did! This is an outstanding B and B in every aspect.... More

Connie and Gary were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful room, nice and cool. A different breakfast every day. We would thoroughly recommend it and will stay there again when we are next in the area.

We stayed one night, and thought it couldn't have been better. The price here beats what you'll find up the road at other inns in Grafton. Here we found a quiet, homelike place with friendly & easygoing innkeepers, just down the road from Grafton's downtown. We stayed in the smallest room, and found it very comfy & clean. Great common... More

I was already thinking about my next stay before I even left The Green Tree Inn! The inn is adorable. It has five rooms (one on the main level and the rest are upstairs) and they are all in the same building as the common area. The common area has two dining room sets, where everyone eats breakfast, a loveseat... More

The Green Tree Inn is a wonderful and charming B&B. The host and hostess are very friendly and accommodating to every guest. The food was fabulous and our room was comfortable and cozy. We travelled there on motorcycles and they even let us park the bikes in their garage! We will definitely return! I would highly recommend it to anyone.

So many people write about being made to feel at home at B&B's, but this one takes the cake. The owners love what they do and it shows! This delightful little inn and owners Gary and Connie offer you the perfect balance of privacy and availability. The fact that their living quarters are separate (but steps away if you need... More

It was the best of both worlds. The rooms are set up more like a hotel but the owners are wonderful and the food was great! Beverages were available for free anytime which was a nice perk. We will definitely be returning. Thanks for a great weekend!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience the peacefulness of quaint Green Tree Inn in the heart of historic Elsah, IL where the architecture of early America is framed by high limestone bluffs, tree-covered hills and the mighty Mississippi. The Inn's beautiful valley is sheltered by nature from everyday intrusions. Enjoy our graciously appointed guests rooms, each with a private bath. Open your door and find a wide porch where you can enjoy the view and the wildlife. Breakfast is home-cooked and is a special time when new acquaintances become old friends over a good cup of coffee and great conversations. ... more   less
