My wife and my three year old daughter spent our new years eve at the Goldmoor. My wife is pregnant so we wanted some well deserved downtime instead of our normal NYE celebration. We opted for the Timberland log cabin, which I highly recommend. The Goldmoor is a bed and breakfast, but it feels much more like a luxury hotel.... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Turret Suite right before Christmas for some much needed down-time; it was lovely! The suite's drama was so much fun with the bed and whirlpool on the 2nd floor. We slept in and opted to have our breakfast brought to us in our suite. Dining in the robes provided on the 1st floor with... More

The Goldmoor Inn has a beautiful location with plenty of land to stroll and relax in. The room/suite that we had was very spacious. We had a kitchenette, 2 person tub in main room and a huge bathroom. Parking was a bit strange because of the set up for accessing the room from outside. It seems more like a hotel... More

My husband and I try to sneak away from the kiddos a few times a year and are always looking for quaint romantic getaways that don't cost an arm and a leg. We found a coupon on Groupon for a Goldmoore Inn in Galena, IL which made our two night stay affordable. We booked the River View King Suite with... More

My husband and I did an overnight here to celebrate my birthday in July. It was a great experience. The grounds are beautiful and overlook the Mississippi River. The rooms include an incredible jacuzzi, heavenly beds, a nice little kitchen area that includes a small fridge, and a great bathroom. I really appreciated the special touches that were included, such... More

The first time, I heard about the Goldmoor Inn was through the visitor center. We drove up and I want to surprise my husband with a over night stay. We were given directions to Goldmoor Inn and we return each year to celebrate our anniversary. But now, we stay for a weekend because one day is not long enough. Each... More

We were recently married at the Goldmoor Inn, and while the location and food was amazing, the service was certainly not up to par with the prices. My husband and I had a small wedding in June with about 25 people, and were looking to have a wedding that was very laid back, relaxed, and low key. One of the... More
