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!!!

Dave took the time to call us the day before our stay. Felt like we were friends before we even pulled in the parking lot. Wonderful room, nicely decorated. I would describe it as elegant. Not your grandmothers bedroom. Love cakes in the morning were the best ever. I had 2nd's :) Dave also helped us chat and get to... More

We were warmly greeted and made to feel right at home. It was our first time to stay at a B&B. It was VERY quiet. Excellent breakfast. Dave even went out of his way to get our breakfast early as we had to get on the road. Would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at Bernadine's Stillman Inn for our one year anniversary and can't begin to tell you how wonderful it was. Dave is so incredibly attentive that you'd think that you were already long lost friends before you arrive. He called us the day before we were scheduled to stay to tell us to feel free to... More

One of our most relaxing visits we have ever had at a bed and breakfast. The location was wonderful, the food was great, the room was comfortable, and Dave was hilarious. 'Nuff said. Will definitely be back for another visit.

My wife & I recently celebrated our 11 year anniversary in Galena & stayed at the Stillman Inn for the fifth time. As usual we really enjoyed seeing our friends Dave & Bernadine as they are truly wonderful hosts. We go to Galena every year simply because not only is Galena itself worth the trip but the incredible hospitality from... More

This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast and we really enjoyed our stay at Bernadine's Stillman Inn! Kids are not allowed there and it was perfect for our anniversary! We booked our room online but were upgraded to the Love's First Touch room upon our arrival so I recommend calling a day or two in advance if... More
