We have stayed at several bed and breakfasts and can honestly say this one is just wonderful! Three couples enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of Connie and Gary. The breakfasts were delicious and the rooms were lovely and inviting. Thanks for an awesome experience!

This was our 3rd visit and, as always, the experience was exemplary! We have stayed in 3 of the 5 rooms and can't decide which is our favorite! Connie and Gary are fantastic hosts and go out of their way to ensure the comfort of their guests, even providing parking for motorcycles in their garage. Breakfast was delicious! We are... More

I stayed here a couple months ago for a couple days for my birthday. I was in desperate need of peaceful and quiet place to recharge my batteries. This was the perfect place to do it.

We stayed at The Green Tree Inn at the start of a month's trip to Missouri and for our whole family of five it was a real highlight of the trip. We had two rooms which were both extremely clean and well-equipped. Connie and Garry were perfect hosts in that they made us feel very welcome, did all they could... More

We stayed in the Hummingbird room, it had a comfortable bed and quiet atmosphere. The room was very clean and everything updated. Connie and Gary make you feel welcome and the food is very good. The bed and breakfast is centrally located between Grafton and Alton which makes it nice to visit different restaurants and local shops.

We definitely feel like we have the best location here in Elsah. We are close to all the activities/restaurants/shops that Alton and Grafton have to offer. But then you can return "home" to the quiet village to relax and rejuvenate. Thanks so much for choosing Green Tree Inn and taking time to do a review. It is appreciated!! More

This was a beautiful, quiet get away in a quaint area with restaurants and a small waterpark close by. My husband and I stayed a few days for rest and relaxation and it was perfect! With amazing cooked breakfasts and warm cookies every afternoon, this was a delightful stay.

It was our first time at a bed and breakfast, too. Really didn't know what to expect. We were absolutely delighted to stay with Connie. She is just an all around TRULY nice person. She took very good care of us. There is a community fridge that we used for our beer and soda while we were there. Connie does... More

The Green Tree Inn is the perfect spot to spend time for relaxing. Gary and Connie are the owners and had everything ready for us to check in and spend the weekend. There were fresh baked treats for afternoon tea and homemade pie later in the evening. A wonderful breakfast was served each morning. The Inn is located in a... More

My wife and I were to meet friends on Saturday night in Quincy so at the last minute we decided to leave on Friday and stay somewhere. I checked my normal spots in Washington, MO and in Grafton and everything was booked. The only place I could find was here. It was only going to be one night so I... More

So happy that you ended up staying with us by default and that you enjoyed your stay. We like to think that we can convert all our guests to being B & B fans.
