Five of us--including a nationally known historic preservation expert who was returning to Elsah after first visiting the village 28 years ago to see a Principia College history professor--stayed two nights in early August, 2014 at the Green Tree Inn. We were treated to what the member of our group who is a retired United Methodist minister called "radical hospitality."... More

Innkeepers Gary and Connie Davis have created the perfect oasis in the tranquil village of Elsah, an historic enclave less than an hour from St. Louis, Missouri. It's the perfect backdrop for the Green Tree Inn, a charming B&B that's cozy, beautiful and private. The Inn's charm extends beyond the well appointed bedrooms and includes several outdoor spaces where guests... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Green Tree Inn so much! Elsah is an amazing little historical village and the Green Tree Inn is the perfect place to stay. The rooms were beautiful, breakfast was exceptional, and Connie was the perfect hostess. We will stay again!

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

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

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
