My girlfriend & I stayed here for 2 nights on our first B&B getaway and Douglas & Robert completely surpassed our expectations. They literally thought of everything and made us feel so welcome that it was hard to leave. All the small touches were perfect. The rooms and house are beautiful, the breakfasts are delicious, and Douglas & Robert are... More

Thanks, Phil, for the great review, wonderful to hear that we were able to exceed your expectations! It was great being able to be yours and Kristin's first B&B experience as we are very proud to be more 'newbie' friendly than many other options. We're looking forward to having you both back in the warmer months; the screened in porch... More

My husband and I had a weekend gateway in Galena while our teenage daughter snowboarded at the nearby ski resort with her cousins. We didn't want to stay at the resort with the noisy crowd. We decided to stay in town at a B&B. We were so glad to have found Aldrich Guest House. Robert and Douglas were delightful hosts.... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers!

I stayed here this past weekend with my husband for a quick night away- our only regret is that we could only stay one night! We had an amazing experience staying with Robert & Douglas. They have done an unbelievable job renovating the place and creating a home away from home here. From the delicious baked goods & breakfasts to... More

My husband planned a trip to Galena for my birthday. It would be our first trip to Galena and to a B&B. Robert and Douglas are probably the two nicest people you can meet. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt very welcome. It was so cozy and beautiful. The tour of the house was also a... More

Hello Shirley, thanks for sharing your review! We love having first time B&B'ers, as we're not your stereotypical overly-decorated, feels-like-grandma's-house sort of a place, and it was wonderful having you and Bill for your first B&B experience! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed hearing the history of the house and Galena as much as we enjoy sharing it with... More

My girlfriend and I settled on a weekend trip to Galena from Peoria for her birthday weekend. We had narrowed our search down to just a few B and B's and after reading reviews for the Aldrich House, we settled here. Upon arrival we were greeted at the door and offered help carrying our bags in. Once inside, we were... More

It was wonderful having you both, Jenn and Erich, thanks for sharing your review! We love when our guests are able to take advantage of everything that we have to offer here at Aldrich - and those shortbread cookies are in my top three favorites that Douglas makes as well! It was wonderful sharing the history of the house with... More

We stayed at the Aldrich Guest House for 2 nights and enjoyed this cozy, beautiful historic BB beyond our expectations. Douglas & Robert's dedication to the home itself as well as the comfort and hospitality they offer to their guests was evident. The amenities were perfect, the place was extremely clean and cozy (and I am picky) and the breakfast... More

Douglas & Robert are fabulous hosts! Every detail is thought out, down to the immaculate rooms, lovely decor, scrumptious breakfasts and yummy treats! We loved staying there and can't wait to go back when the rooms have been updated. We stayed in Room #5, the McClellan room with it's comfortable bed and divine plush linens, the electric fireplace (with remote,... More

Stayed here with a friend for 2 nights between Christmas and New Years. We felt very welcomed, beds were very comfortable and cookies and breakfasts were delicious! We even came home with a new recipe! Convenient distance to downtown (which would have been easily walkable had the temperature not been near 0.) We both decided we would stay here again... More

We two New Yorkers spent 3 late December evenings at the Aldrich Guest House and enjoyed every minute. Robert and Douglas were welcoming and excellent hosts. The breakfasts were beautiful in presentation, delicious, and the coffee excellent and plentiful. We walked everywhere from the house even with chilly temperatures the walks were short and energizing. We also enjoyed conversations with... More
