My wife and I spent 3 nights a the Stillman's Bed and Breakfast and it was a wonderful experience. Dave was fantastic, a man who loves his job and it shows. His friendliness, hospitality and accommodating manner were outstanding. The inn is a lovely restored old mansion, comfortable and furnished beautifully. We would highly recommend Bernadine's Stillman Inn to anyone... More

Wonderful people and place! The room was beautiful, complete with hottub. Quiet even though close to major highway. Very relaxing. Met some other first timers and some that go there on a yearly basis. For a special occasion we would go back.

The place and the people were great. It's very close to downtown and Dave gives you a nice overview of the places to hit and miss during your stay. Overall, it's a quiet, clean place to stay that gives you a very unique experience.

We visited Galena this time for our 25th Anniversary, this was our 5th overnight visit to Galena. The Inn is a very nice home, decorated for the time period but, still with modern amenities, whirlpool baths, flat screen televisions. The breakfast was very good & presented elegantly with friendly owners. Walking distance to some things or a short 3-4 block... More

The Bed and Breakfast was great!!! The hosts were very kind and took an interest in getting to know us. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms were spacious and interesting. The house itself has a great history and it is just gorgeous. Very close to downtown and affordable! My husband and I will definitely stay there again.

This B&B is very nice, comfortable and clean. The beds and pillows are very comfortable which makes for a good night's sleep and being well rested in the morning. The owners will try and help you out with finding out times and places of events and activities. Their suggestions on places to dine are very good. The breakfasts were delicious,... More

On a recent impromptu weekend visit to Galena, we luckily ended up at the Stillman Inn. After spending the afternoon visiting the vineyard and walking around town we decided to stay the night, but had trouble finding a room on Main Street. We happened to call Dave at the Stillman and were immediately delighted by our good fortune- he just... More

We were at the inn for our honeymoon and it was our first experience staying at a B & B. Dave and Bernadine are wonderful hosts. The cookie jar was always full and the ice cream bars are great!!! We are already looking forward to returning in the future!!!
