Our first time at the Aldrich House and we loved it! Beautiful location and within walking distance to downtown. My husband and I visit Galena often, usually staying at another B&B- but from now we will come here! The new owners Douglas & Robert are excellent Innkeepers and I can't wait to see what they have done to the place... More

Douglas and I are so glad that you enjoyed your Oktoberfest with us! We enjoyed chatting with you both and are glad that you were able to make yourselves at home at Aldrich House - proud to be your new home away from home in Galena! Can't wait to see you and David again soon! More

Beautiful home, gracious hosts and lovely gardens; and a location close enough to walk to downtown but far enough to relax and enjoy a relaxing, quiet retreat. My room was the J. Russel Jones room, which faces 3rd Street. Comfortable bed and a very charming room. Despite the B&B being fully occupied, it was quiet and peaceful. Wonderful breakfast and... More

Beautiful house and gardens, delicious breakfasts, great hospitality! Fran and Brian are very knowledgeable about local history, restaurants and places to visit! We have stayed at this Bed and Breakfast at least four times and we always have a wonderful experience! :)

We have stayed at the Aldrich several times. It's a truly welcoming and amazing place. Within easy walking distance of downtown Galena, and far enough off Route 20 to be relaxingly quiet the ambience is wonderful. They have a beautiful garden if you just want to relax with a good book or enjoy your morning coffee. We highly recommend Fran... More

We stayed with friends at the Aldrich and had a wonderful time. The house and rooms were beautiful and the atmosphere was great. We really enjoyed the screen porch overlooking the gardens in the evenings after a full day of shopping and kayaking and exploring. In the mornings the porch was a popular spot to meet other guests and relax... More

Thank you Brian and Fran for the wonderful time in Galena. We do not typically stay in Bed & Breakfasts, but chose to with 6 adults. You have a beautiful home with lovely gardens. We enjoyed the screened porch a lot. Your breakfasts were wonderful. We had more than we could eat. We will definately stay at your place next... More

We really enjoyed staying at this pretty little bed & breakfast. Fran and Brian were very welcoming hosts and their home is very relaxing. We also enjoyed the tasty breakfast. The b&b is on the other side of the river from the main street of Galena but it's only 5 minutes walk (and a nice walk). I'd definitely recommend it.

Had a great experience here for a long weekend. Fran and Brian treated us very well and all of the accommodations were very nice and clean. We loved our room and enjoyed the quietness of the home. Fran and Brian cooked awesome breakfasts each morning, and were able to easily accommodate a gluten-free diet. The location is great as well... More
