The location was great! The B & B was fabulous! The atmosphere was very relaxing. and the food was great. The little personal touches made our stay special. They shared the stories of the B & B, and the hospitality was good. My Sister is from Germany, and never stayed at a B & B. She was very impressed.

We had a wonderful time at the Aldrich House, thoroughly enjoyed the house, history, and the beautiful gardens with the screened in porch. Robert and Douglas are thoughtful and excellent hosts! We also highly recommend the stand up paddleboarding on the Galena River. So much fun!
