Experience the peacefulness of Green Tree Inn Bed and Breakfast located in the heart of historic Elsah, IL. The entire village of Elsah is on the Historic Register. Enjoy our graciously appointed guests rooms, each with a private bath. Each room is uniquely decorated. Guests are served homemade afternoon snacks each day. Breakfast is home-cooked and is a special time when new acquaintances become old friends over a good cup of coffee and great conversations. Elsah is set in a valley along the Mississippi River located just 4 miles from Grafton and 10 miles from Alton. It is a great place to rest and relax, but if you are looking for things to do there are many intriguing local attractions nearby. Guests have access to a full kitchen, a common area (stocked with water, soda, tea and coffee), a garden as well as a screened in porch. Guests are provided access to the free use of bicycles.

We visited over this weekend. The bed-and-breakfast is very charming, clean and well run. We had a nice room with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The heat was nice there was even a heater in the bathroom. I think the most important attributes are the two amazing

The Green Tree in is in a great location. Elsah is a quaint village located between Alton and Grafton. Connie, the owner, was wonderful! She did everything to make our stay pleasant. We particularly enjoyed the delicious breakfast and the tour of the town museum.

We have to agree that Green Tree Inn is in a perfect location. We are close enough to take advantage of all the activities in Grafton and Alton and then return to our quiet village and cozy Inn to relax. So happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for taking time to do a review, it is appreciated.

The rooms are all very clean and well decorated and the beds very comfortable, the owners are both very welcoming and the guests all were friendly as well. The breakfast was delicious and portions were generous, with offers for seconds as well.

As I always tell my guests, I grew up on a farm and my mom and grandma's all taught me that you always make sure you have plenty of food. I always want my guests to leave the table with a full and satisfied stomach. So happy you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the kind words and taking time to do a review.

The Room
Is it Pet Friendly?
Thank you for your inquiry regarding Green Tree Inn. We do have one room that is designated as our pet friendly room. This room is located in our residence, which was originally a 3 room bed and breakfast. It has since been converted to a residence and we have placed one of the original rooms back in service as a guest room. It is newly decorated and has a queen size bed and along with it's own private bathroom. You also have access to our glassed in sun porch. The rate is $135 Sunday-Thursday and $145 on Friday/Saturday (plus tax). This rate includes homemade afternoon snacks and a delicious home cooked breakfast. There are not pictures on our website because I want to talk to folks before I rent it since it is located in our residence. Give me a call 618-374-282 for more info and available dates. hope to hear from you. Connie

"Any of the rooms at the Inn would be a good overnight stay."
"Our room was a bit on the small side, but we choose it as it was on the first floor. Rooms on second floor are larger."
"All the rooms look like they would be quiet in this sleepy little village of yesteryear."
"All rooms are quiet, this is an old river town with very little traffic."
"Great Inn see the village"
$145 - $183 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
