Great House was our first ever B&B experience, and we were so impressed! We've stayed there three times for events at Knox College, and look forward to our next visit. Each of the four upstairs bedrooms is tastefully furnished with antiques, dressers and plenty of room to hang clothes. All have ensuite bathrooms; some have fireplaces. Everything's clean as a...

My wife and I came to town to participate in the birth of our newest Grandson and could not be more pleased . This was the third stay at the Great House and just seemed ultra comfortable. Granted it is off season but the stay was easy, smooth and our hostess, Betty made everything seem so easy. We will be... More

Our visit to Galesburg was family oriented, and my Wife and I were looking for an alternative to the standard hotel in the area. B&B's are a treat for us, and we decided to give Great House a try because of the close proximity of our family. I was greeted with a friendly smile followed by a brief history of... More

First of all, we are a family of 4 and this was our first time in Galesburg, and, except for my husband, the first time staying in a B&B. Such a wonderful experience for all of us! Our hostess and home owner, Betty, is a sweet and delightful lady. The love and passion she has for the history of her... More

Betty was a great hostess whose House is worthy of the title. Stayed three nights total after a bicycle tour and found the location right near downtown superb. Breakfast was a quality meal each morning and Betty was very helpful in all aspects of our stay. Learned much of Galesburg history during our visit, right down to the important history... More

We were in town with my parents for our son's graduation from Knox College. Betty was a fabulous hostess. Very hospitable and knowledgeable. Both rooms were very well decorated and had really comfortable beds. Breakfast for our two mornings was delicious. Betty was especially accommodating as we had other guests in town who came over to visit at the house.... More

Arrived with a family of four and was warmly welcomed. The room was beautiful and the beds were comfortable. The whole family slept sound and well. Had a great time watching thunderstorms through the windows one night. We were traveling by train and had a few special requests, such as dropping off our baggage early. Everything went so well. The... More

My husband and I spent the night at the Great House for a visit to our daughter at Knox College. The house was lovely and Betty was a wonderful host. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Galesburg and provided a lot of information about the house and her restoration of the stately home. Our room was nicely decorated... More

Betty was a gracious hostess and diligent proprietor. Her breakfasts were delicious and the Lincoln Room was well appointed. We enjoyed the outdoor deck seating each evening and how close the house was to all the downtown shopping and attractions. Galesburg was a fun stop for a weekend getaway. We learned much about the house from Betty and were able... More

Betty is a fantastic hostess! She started us off with a detailed tour of the entire home and all of its historical contents. Her collection has been well researched and gels well. We enjoyed being able to eat breakfast at our leisure and not necessarily with the rest of the lodgers. Breakfast was really good and there was plenty to... More
