There is no better place to stay if you want complete satisfaction. It's more like staying with family. The breakfast is amazing, the atmosphere is extremely relaxing, very clean, and well taken care of. The courtyard is beautiful and the front porch has a swing. Dave and Bernadine are there to make sure your stay is the best possible. They... More

We booked an 'Elopement Package' with Dave on-line and phone. The setup and service prior to arrival was top notch service. They took care of everything and I mean everything. The ceremony was amazing and incredibly romantic. The pictures/service they offered were second to none. Dave made dinner reservations for us in downtown Galena at a top 100 restaurant in... More

For our first B&B experience, it was simply the best. Dave & Bernadine are wonderful. Dave makes you feel right at home the moment you walk through the doors. From the morning breakfasts to relaxing in your well-appointed room, it is was truly a wonderful experience.

We had a very fun and relaxing long weekend at Bernadine's Stillman Inn. Dave was very helpful in planning our day's activities and where to eat. The room was clean, quiet, and relaxing. The breakfasts were delicious... I might need the recipe for the banana bread extravaganza!

My spouse and I stayed in the Royalty III room, which was clean and tidy but extremely small. As you can see in the picture, the pedestal sink is in the room, right next to the bed. On the opposite side of the bed, there is a door leading to the tiny "bathroom" (small shower and toilet only), which leaves... More

My fiance and I stayed 3 nights at the stillman inn for our honeymoon. Not only was the room and property absolutely beautiful and romantic, but the hospitality of both Dave and Bernadine truly made our experience! Thank you Dave and Bernadine for making our honeymoon so memorable!

This was our first bed and breakfast and it was a wonderful experience. Bernadine and Dave were wonderful hosts. Bernadine's breakfasts were out of this world and kept us going all day. This is defiantly a place that we will stay again.

Driving toward the majestic Bernadine's Stillman Inn and you know you will be in for a special stay. Dave, the proprietor, certainly has a gift for making you feel welcome. He greeted my husband and I at the door, offered us bottled water, chocolate chip cookies, and fruit. He showed us around the property and to our room, while telling... More

We were traveling to Galena to relax and get away from our super busy and hectic lives in Chicago and that's exactly what we got, without sacrificing any amenities! It was our first time staying at a B&B so we were slightly apprehensive. The inn is beautiful and historic, very well maintained and extremely peaceful. We stayed in the Grand... More

Dave and Bernadine were wonderful host, and the breakfast was very enjoyable due the fact that it was made to order not massed produced. he fact that they were concerned that your every need was met, was very refreshing in this day and age. We will certainly return in the future.
