A surprise trip to Alton, IL and the perfect getaway! My husband whisked me away for a 2 night stay for our anniversary. (actually, we took the Harley's, so I followed him for a nice ride down from Chicago - Great rides too, but that's another review;) We were greeted by Jim, who gave us a brief tour of the... More

My husband and I had an amazing and relaxing time. We loved the chocolate bar, balcony off of our room, the whirlpool tub and so much more. Jim and Sandy are fantastic hosts. We want to stay again and see a different room.

The house is beautifully furnished with a wide range of antiques, Jim, the owner, is well versed in the history of the home and graciously shares the story of the home. The woodwork was incredible, each room in different hard woods. We loved our room on the third floor which was one of the least expensive. We had a sitting... More

My husband found The Beall Mansion online, and we decided it would be perfect for our little getaway. And it was! We enjoyed every aspect! Even from the initial email confirmation, we could tell these owners were people who were detail oriented and cared about each individual guest and their needs! Based on our plans for the arrival day, Jim... More

Our room was beautiful and the owners were attentive and courteous, without hovering. This was a repeat visit to the Beall Mansion for my husband and me because we had such an enjoyable experience the first time. We especially enjoyed the 24-hour chocolate bar!

It's not often that you stay somewhere that simply has everything you need and want. Beall Mansion did and it was provided with such care that we felt completely comfortable for our entire stay. The house, the beds, the grounds, the food, the care...everything was absolutely perfect! If you're looking for a couples getaway, or a family reunion, or just... More

Stayed here for my 25th wedding anniversary. The house was beautifully restored after several different owners put their own touches on the place. It was well kept, clean, and in a quiet part of town for a good nights rest. Ear plugs are even provided if your bed partner is too loud. They went the extra mile to serve us... More

We stayed here on a whim as we were passing thru the STL area. This mansion has a lot of history surrounding one the most important figures in Alton's history and Jim and Sandy have done an amazing job in restoring the home to its original splendor. The home is very clean, the beds are very comfortable, and the self-serve... More
