Thank you for accommodating our family in such a lovely fashion. The kids had a lovely time and were made to feel very welcome, and the rooms were simply lovely. You couldn't beat the breakfast either. This is a perfectly appointed, beautifully furnished Victorian mansion with all the modern conveniences, as long as you understand the rooms are period rooms.... More

I would not recommend anyone stay here. The inn keepers are rude and unprofessional. When an unpredictable situation arose they were unable to handle the situation. My friends and I were treated so rudely by Rita and Charlie that we ended leaving early and staying at a hotel down the street. Rita and Charlie need to take a class in... More

My husband and I have been going to Galena every year for the past seven years. Most of our stays have been at the lovely Victorian Mansion. The times that we stayed elsewhere, we were disappointed. Rita and Charlie are awesome hosts and go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. It is... More

Illinois was in the midst of a stretch of bitter cold and the Victorian Mansion once more provided a warm, cozy and friendly retreat. This was our third visit to the Victorian Mansion and we looked forward to the hospitality that we have come to expect from Rita and Charlie. We were not disappointed. After settling into the warm and... More

Staying at the Victorian Mansion in Galena has been one of the highlights of my year! My four-night stay under Rita and Charlie's care was amazingly special and uplifting. My sisters and I shared adjoining rooms which were beautifully decorated, spacious, comfortable, and clean. The breakfasts were delicious and attractively presented, made with fresh ingredients and with generous portion sizes.... More
