This was our first trip to Galena, and my husband & I chose to stay at the Aldrich House after reading Trip Advisor postings! We were delighted with everything about it! We have stayed at many bed & breakfast homes over the years and this one is our favorite by far! Robert & Douglas couldn't have been nicer! We felt... More

Robert and Douglas were wonderful hosts. They showed us around the property when we arrived, and were always trying to help us find the next perfect experience in Galena. They were host and cook and baker (cookies!) and concierge extraordinaire. While the weather didn't always cooperate on our trip, the B&B was excellent.

This is a beautiful B&B, and Robert and Douglas were fantastic hosts. The house is beautiful and we enjoyed hearing its extensive history from owner Robert. Our room was cozy, nicely decorated, and very comfortable! We were able to see all of the rooms of the house, and every one was lovely. My daughter and I enjoyed playing games in... More

Douglas and Robert are great. They're really taking the spirit of the house and running with it. Highly recommended! This was our first B&B experience, and it couldn't have been better. Breakfast was a fun experience and the food was very tasty. The bed was super comfortable and the room was very nice and clean. We'll definitely be back.

Owners Robert and Douglas are passionate about customer service and it showed throughout our stay. From the warm greeting and tour of the house when we arrived, to the friendly send-off as we left, they were always willing to make our stay as pleasant as possible without being too intrusive. They make it clear that they are always available for... More

I would highly recommend Aldrich House for a stay in Galena. It is a beautiful home, very elegant and also very clean. The rooms are comfortable and there is a large, beautifully decorated parlor. It was decorated for Christmas while we were there and my husband and I spent a pleasant evening by the Christmas tree with a bottle of... More

Our visit to Aldrich Guest House was wonderful. We have recommended Aldrich to many of our friends and family. Such history, owners went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable, and a wonderful delicious breakfast by candlelight. Robert and Douglas are very generous to share their home. We visited at Christmas time and the decorations are outstanding.

A friend and I were attending an art exhibition she had curated in nearby Dubuque, so we decided to spend a couple of days in Galena. I chose the Aldrich Guest House because everything I read online made it appealing. It exceeded our expectations. Robert and Douglas are gracious, informative, and capable hosts. It is a beautifully maintained historic property.... More

This was our first Thanksgiving away from family in 35 years, and our 1st get-away to Galena. The Aldrich house was the perfect place to go. The new owners, Robert & Douglas, were not only the perfect hosts, but their knowledge of the house and prior experience in the hospitality industry made our visit second to none. The house has...
