We were impressed by Douglas and Robert's enthusiasm for their B&B. Not only were they excited to share the history of their beautiful home; their desire to serve and provide for our comfort was exceptional. We enjoyed the delicious and satisfying breakfast and were able to relax in our clean and comfortable room. We strongly recommend the Aldrich Guest House... More

The Aldrich Guest House was my first experience at a Bed & Breakfast. It more than lived up to expectations. Both Robert & Douglas made my first B&B experience extremely enjoyable. And they showed their culinary skills daily at breakfast. It's hard to believe that they have only been here for a month. The atmosphere they present is top-notch and... More

My wife and i were looking for a B&B at which to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. Having heard about Galena but never visited we thought this would be the ideal destination. When we arrived we were greeted and welcomed by both Robert and Douglas. We immediately felt like we had picked the right B & B in Galena. The... More

Where do I begin? My husband & I were searching for a wonderful B&B for our overnight stay in Galena. It was a wonderful stay at the Aldrich. Robert was extremely generous in letting us stay only one night (although I wish we could've stayed a week!) & it was fantastic. I couldn't believe Robert & Douglas have only been... More

It was wonderful hosting you and your husband for your birthday - thanks for spending it with us! It was great chatting with you both about the excitement of maintaining and restoring charm to old houses (best of luck with yours!), and don't worry, we'll make sure that any changes we do would make Mr. Aldrich himself proud.

Spent this past weekend at the Aldrich House celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Robert and Douglas, the new owners are exceptionally gracious and attentive. The home is beautiful and spotless. The dining room table was a stunning sight to see. Beautiful linens, festive fall accents and the French toast dish was out of this world "Yummy"....Keep up the good work... More

It's been a couple of weeks (in Galena to see the much-touted Halloween parade) since we stayed at Aldrich Guest House. I wanted to see what my lasting impressions would be before submitting a review. I must admit we were a little nervous having heard that ownership changed hands since we made our reservations, but those fears were immediately relieved... More

Beautiful, clean, clean, clean comfortable room. Gourmet style breakfast and cookies. Friendly owners. We enjoyed our time visiting both Galena and Aldrich Guest House. The owners, Robert and Douglas, made us feel special even amongst four other couples. The extra touches... homemade cookies in our room, homemade cookies in the dining room for our enjoyment, and coffee, tea and hot... More

Aldrich house was terrific before but the new owners are taking to an even higher level. 5 star service in a historic location. Great breakfast in the formal dining room and home made cookies in our room. What's not to love?

Robert and Douglas were exceptionally gracious hosts! The rooms were exceptionally clean with nice little extras like chocolate mints, bottled water and cozy robes. The breakfast was gourmet and a sight to behold. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and homemade treats were available at all times.

Our first visit to a B&B in Galena. We picked Aldrich House for the screen porch & the Dr. Edward Bench room which accomodates 3. The beds are very comfy with great linens. Douglas & Robert were delightful hosts and made us feel very welcome. Cookies and breakfast are delicious. Their home is beautiful and relaxing.
