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

My wife and I visited Galena for the day from Chicago and chose to stay at the The Aldrich Guest House. It has a great location across the river from main street and Fran and Brian were excellent hosts. Upon arriving, Fran received us warmly at the door by our names. She took a few minutes to show us around... More

Fran and Brian are the perfect hosts. The Aldrich House is a perfect place to totally relax and within walking distance to the wonderful sites and restaurants Galena has to offer.

Great location for a B & B in Galena! Fran and Brian were gracious hosts. It was very relaxing and the food was delicious! The house is beautiful and it would have been great to see the gardens had the weather been better. Thank you for sponsoring your home for Veteran's Day...your kindness is greatly appreciated. Ed

The location is great. Fran & Brian could not have been more gracious. And the breakfast were amazing -- three mornings and three wonderful breakfasts. The house is very clean and nicely decorated with fun touches for Halloween. The common rooms were very welcoming and comfortable. It made for a very relaxing, enjoyable few days in Galena.

This was my 2nd stay at Aldrich House and it is most excellent. This home is so clean and I'm very fussy and I was not disappointed one bit. Fran and Brian are wonderful hosts and Fran has got to be a secret chef as her breakfasts are "to die for" and worth staying there for that alone. Galena is... More

We wanted a regional destination with a lovely seasonal color trip on the way, so we chose a fall drive downriver to historic, beautiful Galena. We picked Aldrich Guesthouse for a quiet, welcoming respite from the bustle of Galena's busiest weekend, the Country Craft Fair (not what we'd come for, but fun nonetheless!) Hosts Brian and Fran were welcoming and... More
