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.

My two-day stay at Green Tree Inn exceeded expectations 100-fold! Connie loves her chosen work of welcoming and hosting guests. From the outside gardens (beautiful!) to the inside amenities (including tooth brush and toothpaste for forgetful travels like me), everything is lovely and loving -- I felt wrapped in love, but not too tightly ... just right. The rooms are... More

Connie and Gary have an incredible place, and they host so graciously. From the coffee/tea bar to the incredible breakfast and spacious rooms, this spot is a perfect place to stay in historic Elsah! The town itself is really quaint, and had we more time would have loved a trek to the nearby sites. Principia College up the hill is... More

The owners are just simply plain wonderful folks. I originally booked it for a Valentine's getaway during February but there was unexpected snow on the day of our trip.

Our stay here was amazing! We stayed in the Aerie Suite and it was comfortable, cozy, and exceptionally clean. The bed was even great too (firm but cushy!). We hardly heard any of the other guests who were there during our stay. Breakfast every morning (whenever we chose) was superb. We were so full from the lavish breakfast that we... More

Was in Elsah doing an interview and was told to check out the Green Tree Inn. So glad we did! The night we arrived we'd been driving for hours; we were plumb tuckered out.

We recently stayed with Connie and Gary at the Green Tree Inn. We are 4 sisters who went to Elsah to celebrate a birthday. Everything was perfect. The room was beautiful, the whole Inn was so comfortable and the food was delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

Arriving in Elsah, you feel like you took a time travel to the 1800's. This Bed and Breakfast was absolutely perfect. Connie and Gary were magnificent hosts. Our rooms provided all the amenities we needed and much more. Breakfast was fantastic. We look forward to our next stay at Green Tree Inn. Thank you- Todd and Deon
