We had an absolutely wonderful time in Elsah, IL at the Green Tree Inn. Connie and Gary were amazing hosts, the inn is beautiful very clean and is nestled in such a quaint, beautiful town along The Great River Road. Would highly recommend staying here.

My sister and I stayed here last night and it was wonderful. We just wanted to get away for a day to chat and enjoy the scenery. It was so clean, the breakfast was wonderful and the rooms were very comfortable. Could not have asked for more. Connie and Gary are just delightful hosts, they make you feel like old... More

The Green Tree Inn is the nicest bed and breakfast we've ever stayed at! Connie and Gary made us feel completely at home and we loved meeting and making new friends. The rooms are all lovely as is the gathering area. The evening cookies and the wonderful breakfast were all home cooked and delicious. We've already booked a return visit!... More

We returned a month after our previous visit, this time bringing our sons. It was just as great of an experience as it was the first time. Connie and Gary made us feel like family, and are enjoyable to talk with. We miss eating Connie's breakfasts and snacks once we get home. We can't wait to come back again.

My husband and I stayed here over Labor day week end. It was our first time at a bed and breakfast. We loved it! We cannot wait to return! We could not get over how clean and cozy and adorable it was. The rooms look just like the photos. We were in the Hummingbird room. Our home cooked breakfast in... More

Their website convinced us to visit the Green Tree Inn for the the first time this weekend. Their outstanding hospitality convinced us that we'll definitely be there again and hopefully soon. What a great place! Photos simply can't show how peaceful it is to stroll historic Elsah before breakfast on a fresh summer morning. Connie and Gary prepared a wonderful... More

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
