We wanted to run away from our everyday life and stressful work. The Victorian Mansion offered the perfect setting for good rest and escape from reality. Hosts were very welcoming and the room was ideal for a couple wanting to spend a cozy and romantic night. The location of the house offers quick access to Main Street with it's shops... More

We had decided last minute to get away to Gelena for the night. We are new to the Midwest and heard great things about the town. We wanted to go snowboarding at Chestnut Mountain and then head to the B&B. Rita asked when we would like to check in. We said 6. They promptly checked us in and spoke about... More

This was our first time visiting Galena and we picked a great place to stay. Not sure why some reviewers found fault with Charlie and Rita, because we found them to be very personable and pleasant. We were made to feel right at home from the start, but we weren't hovered over. Our room was very nice, very comfortable, and... More

I loved all the history that Rita and Charlie told about the Victorian Mansion. They are a sweet couple. We took a trolly ride through town, that was very interesting. The driver also talked a lot about Galena's history. I highly recommend you do the Trolly Tours. The Victorian Mansion is within walking distance from town, but you have to... More

Took a few days and went to Galena. First time there. Great for shopping and history. Our hosts were friendly and we really enjoyed the information about Galena after breakfast. It was nice to have them interact with the guests with their historical knowledge. The history of the house is very interesting. We stayed on the 3rd floor in the... More

Made res On Saturday morning. Was told to be there by 3. To check in. As they wanted to leave early. No ice, did not accept b&b gift certificate. (Reason for staying here) Not as published in b&b.com. Room was ok though. Would not again. Breakfast ok. Minimalistic for the price. Hosts were fine. Problem seems to be with property... More

Victorian Mansion was so close to Main St and the right price, too. On a Thursday we decided to go away for the weekend and found Victorian Mansion online. I called the number and spoke with Rita. She was very nice and described all the rooms that would be best suited for us. I traveled with my aunt and cousin,... More

If you want the best of everything during your stay in Galena then start by staying at this wonderful B&B. The special experience was orchestrated by the gracious hostess and host--Rita and Charlie! The accomodations; the fabulous breakfast(s); the history-sharing; and the general cozy and friendly atmosphere all helped to create one of our best Sisters' Weekend. Thanks, Rita and... More

We found the Victorian Mansion on trip advisor and after reading many reviews we started to get a little nervous because of the negative reviews. I am SO glad we decided to stick with the decision to stay at the Victorian Mansion. This was our first time staying at a B&B and it was definitely a different experience but such... More

My husband and I stayed at the Victorian Mansion for our first wedding anniversary this Memorial Day weekend (2014). We had an exceptional experience. It was my husband’s first time ever staying at a bed and breakfast and he was very impressed. I have stayed at one other b&b, and it does not even begin to compare with our time... More
