Enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Green Tree Inn with 3 girl friends. The Meadowlark room was perfect for us! Everything"s very clean and neat. Sheets are very soft, & towels thick & plush. There's a cabinet with games, tv, small refrigerator with cold drinks. Connie & Gary are wonderful hosts & very helpful with ideas of places to see... More

The Green Tree Inn in Elsah, Il. is the perfect place to relax and unwind from the hustle of every day life. The town (village) itself is enchanting with it's quaint, historic, homes, and the people who live there couldn't be friendlier. Definitely a place to visit and enjoy. Our accommodations at the Green Tree Bed and Breakfast were first-class.... More

We enjoyed our night at the inn. We'd planned to take advantage of the bikes they offer guests to ride along the river and explore the town, but this summer's monsoon rains made that option less appealing. Still, we felt very taken care of by Gary and Connie, and enjoyed relaxing in their large common area, watching the hummingbirds at... More

We were ending a vacation in Ely, MN by travelling the Great River Road back home. Great idea, bad timing...both the MS and IL Rivers were flooding. The day we were to arrive at the B&B, we endured one detour after another. Connie fielded several calls from us that day. AND! When we *finally* arrived, she had homemade chocolate chip... More

It was our pleasure. Thank you for the kind words. I just wish you could have had the Great River Road experience without all the flooding. I guess that just means you will have to visit us again:) More

I stayed at the Green Tree Inn with friends for a weekend getaway. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. The owners were very helpful: suggested things to do in the area, gave us coupons, and had bikes for us to ride around the area.

This was our first experience with a B & B. Connie and Gary are truly wonderful hosts. They helped us with a nice place to eat and gave suggestions on where to visit. We loved the room (Robin's Nest), so clean and cozy. Elsah, IL is a step back in time, quiet and inviting to all. The hospitality was supreme... More

Connie and Gary are wonderful owners. Very friendly and genuine and obviously are committed to providing an excellent experience. Cooking is phenomenal and they even accommodated my wife's gluten issues. The only negative is the pillows weren't very comfortable. Definitely would go back!

We greatly appreciate the feedback so we can be aware of any potential problems. We will look forward to seeing you again. More

I was searching for somewhere with an hour or two from my home in Springfield, IL to take my wife for Valentine's. After reviewing a couple of dozen options I located the Green Tree Inn. I read all of the reviews and looked at most of the pictures and amenities. Everything I read and saw was quite appealing. When I... More

Highly recommend the Green Tree Inn for a quiet peaceful getaway. Connie's warm hospitality made us feel comfortable and welcome - nothing was too much trouble for her. Connie even took the time to open up the village museum for us to have a look around. Warm homemade cookies greeted us every afternoon and delicious breakfast were made for us... More
