Booked the Chefs Quarters for my wife and I on a quick three day honeymoon to Galena. Everything about the Goldmoor was top notch from driving up Sand Hill Drive and seeing the place for the first time to when we were pulling away at the end of our stay. The staff is the best I have encountered anywhere. The... More

My husband gave me a ring for our 15 year anniversary on a Friday night. I tucked it away in a side pocket of my luggage and we called the staff that morning and said we did not want our room cleaned. We went out for the day and came back to see our room had been cleaned and my... More

Dear Toni,I am sorry that you lost your ring while visiting the Goldmoor. We take accusations of theft very serious and have conducted a full investigation. We have also searched the room thoroughly and have not been able to find anything. I suggest ( you may have done so already ) you file a police report with the local police... More

The grounds were spectacular, the inn was almost storybook from the outside, while remaining luxurious on the inside. The staff were friendly, and the owners genuinely seemed to care about the occupants as people, and not as just customers. The food was excellent, and the atmosphere was such that it almost demanded relaxation. Every little detail seemed to have been... More

Yes, book it!!! The online pictures DO NOT do this wonderful establishment justice. My husband and I have 5 children (age ranging from 15 down to 3). We live a very full and busy lifestyle.

I surprised my wife for her 50th birthday and I can tell you she was surprised!!

This was the venue for my wedding. The property itself was gorgeous and many guests complimented the B&B on this. The owners were very kind and attentive during our wedding weekend. However, I am VERY disappointed in the Wedding Coordinator, Erica. When we first booked our wedding, she was non-communicative. She wouldn't return calls or emails, it was very frustrating.... More
