Six girlfriends traveled to Galena to celebrate a birthday. We stayed 2 nights at Aldrich and our stay was perfect. The rooms were clean and well appointed. We enjoyed sitting on the screen porch and viewing the garden. The owners graciously met our every need.

Hello! It was so great meeting you both and being able to be part of your trip to the US! Thank you for the great compliments on all of the renovations and restorations we've done to the house - we've been having a wonderful time bringing the interior into a more classic feel that references the past without replicating it....

Our stay at the Aldrich house was wonderful! Not only were the home and our room immaculate, and the breakfasts delicious, but Robert and Douglas went beyond the call of duty in helping us in getting tickets for tours and reservations for meals. The close proximity to downtown was a real plus; from the time we arrived in Galena until... More

This was perfect for our mom's getaway. We each had our own room and it was very affordable. The wine hour was fantastic and the breakfast was amazing. It's a quick walk to downtown Galena. Robert and Douglas were very accommodating and friendly. I'll definitely be returning for another weekend away in the near future.

The Inn itself is decorated in such a way that you feel comfortable rather than intrusive in the rooms. Pros: 1) Robert and Douglas are great hosts and you can tell they have put a lot of work into the Inn and take great pride in the building and the grounds. They are very knowledgeable about the area can help... More

This was our first time at a bed and breakfast. We found it to be as charming and elegant as we hoped for. The rooms were decorated beautifully and extremely clean. There was not one negative aspect of this place. I highly recommend visiting The Aldrich House for a memorable experience! You will not find better hosts!

We chose Aldrich Guest House based on the photos on their website. What attracted us was their understated and classy decor (often hard to find in lace-filled, busy B&Bs). We were not disappointed. Both Robert and Douglas, the owners, have extensive experience in the hospiltality industry and it shows. They were detailed oriented, quick to offer concierge-type service, and fun... More

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary with a weekend in Galena staying at Douglas and Robert's beautiful B&B. The room (RH McClellan) was beautiful and very comfortable. Bathroom was spacious with a beautiful clawfoot tub and brass fixtures. The rest of the house was also very comfortable, and we enjoyed meeting other guests at the wine happy hour... More

Robert and Douglas were excellent hosts. They prepared wonderful breakfasts that catered to our vegan diet. All of the food was artfully prepared and presented. The guest rooms were bright, well appointed, and comfortable. Excellent attention to detail. We spent many hours visiting on the wonderful screened-in porch with a porch swing.
