Douglas and Robert have made this bed and breakfast experience very special. It's a beautiful old mansion that they've made modern enhancements to. They are very hospitable and made us feel at home. It made our first visit to Galena memorable and cemented the fact that we will be back!

The Aldrich has everything you want in a B & B: beautiful, clean rooms; amazing breakfast (the best meals we ate in Galena were the breakfasts); and a low-key atmosphere in a historic house. It also has its two wonderful hosts, Robert and Douglas. Both of them have dedicated themselves to the job of innkeeping with real joy and a... More

My family had such a wonderful time here this past weekend. Robert and Douglas were spectacular hosts! They went above and beyond to make our stay there perfect. The house itself was absolutely stunning. Every single room was beautiful and unique. I can't wait to come back when it's warmer, so I can see the beautiful gardens. I am so... More

Having never stayed in Galena I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best when booking a room here for myself and two other friends for a "girls getaway". The Aldrich house had a room that would accomodate all 3 of us. Douglas and Robert are outstanding hosts, pampering us with not only a wonderful breakfast but homemade sweets and... More

My boyfriend and I came to Galena for a short Valentine's weekend trip. It was freezing, but the Aldrich House was one of the reasons why our stay was still wonderful. First of all, I had originally let them know that we would be checking in around 4. We arrived early, though, so decided to see if we could check... More

We went to Galena for a mini ski weekend and stayed at the Aldrich House. Robert and Douglas could not have been more kind or accommodating. The house/rooms/food were all top notch. Felt very quaint and homey. And we received 20% discount by showing our lift tickets from Chestnut Mountain skiing. We will definitely stay at the Aldrich Guest House... More
