Over the past eighteen years my husband and I have stayed at a number of bed and breakfasts, and the Green Tree Inn is, by far, the best! The inn was very clean and wonderfully decorated and the food was terrific. I was impressed with the amenities; abundant outdoor seating, bikes, a fire pit, and a spacious indoor commons area...

We stayed at Green Tree Inn in October with three other couples. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Gary built a campfire for us and we all sat outside by the fire that evening. Coffee & tea were provided at any time of day. We received coupons for a free glass of wine at the Grafton Winery. Delicious cookies... More

This was the fifth time that we've stayed at this B&B and it was just as charming as the first. Connie and Gary are such gracious hosts! There is always plenty to eat at breakfast (someone at our table had three servings of Connie's pumpkin pancakes--and it wasn't me!) and I just love the afternoon treats that are prepared from...

Elsah is charming. The inn is a very short walk from the river and a view of the bluffs. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. The inn keeper gave us coupons for wine at the Grafton Winery and Restaurant where we enjoyed the sunset over the Mississippi. Breakfast was wonderful. I wish we could have stayed another night!

This was our first B&B experience and it couldn't have been better. From the moment you arrive Connie and Gary treat you as if they've known you for years. Connie had made a pineapple upside down cake and it was warm and absolutely delicious. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. They had a fire pit for us... More

My husband and I arrived at the Green Tree Inn on 25 Sept. 2015. Gary and Connie were very friendly and accommodating. Our room (The Aerie) was very clean and neat. Breakfast was very plentiful and delicious. Had pleasant conversation with the owners and other guests. By far the best Bed and Breakfast we have visited. We would recommend The... More

My partner and I visited the inn for one night, and are booking a full weekend there this coming December. Connie is extremely gracious and a wonderful host and cook. Her and her husband take away the "stuffy and uncomfortable" feel of some of the other b & b's I have visited. I have been to many, but this will... More

Me and My husband couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our weekend along the Great River Road! Connie and Gary were the most gracious hosts and Connie even baked my favorite cake for the afternoon snack on my birthday. They couldn't have been more helpful and offered great suggestions on restaurants and places to go. We... More

Enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Green Tree Inn with 3 girl friends. The Meadowlark room was perfect for us! Everything"s very clean and neat. Sheets are very soft, & towels thick & plush. There's a cabinet with games, tv, small refrigerator with cold drinks. Connie & Gary are wonderful hosts & very helpful with ideas of places to see... More
