Property's Favorite Review
This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and it was AWESOME! Such a beautiful Inn and Connie and Gary are wonderful. Elsah is such a quaint little town and very walkable to explore. I was just so impressed with everything, the common area, our charming room, the screened in porch area and the food! Oh my goodness, the food was so wonderful. We chose to have dinner prepared one evening and it was so delicious and seconds were offered. The breakfast in the mornings was also so much more than I expected and afternoon snacks. The bar has been set so high for our stay that it will be hard for any future bed and breakfast to top this. We will definitely be returning, probably in different seasons to explore . You will be so pleased with your stay here!

My spouse and I had a wonderful stay at the Green Tree Inn. The innkeepers go out of their way to make sure everyone is comfortable at the inn. They also are knowledgeable about the area and eager to offer ideas of activities. And the food! Not only are the breakfasts hearty, delicious, and varied, but there is also a homemade "sweet treat" for guests to enjoy at their leisure in the afternoon or evening. The inn is conveniently located in the charming and quiet town of Elsah, which is a sweet walk or bike ride to view the well-preserved architecture and landscaping. Across the road from the inn, the town is restoring the wetlands, and you can take a stroll to admire the trees and wildflowers. We brought our tandem bike and enjoyed riding the top-rated Sam Vadalabene Bike Trail with access minutes away from our door.

My friend and I had the pleasure of staying at this adorable, clean and well kept B&B when we visited the Alton, IL area in late June 2022! We stayed in the Meadowlark room and everything was perfect! Connie and Gary are wonderful hosts and were very happy to share information about the history of the area and things to do. Gary even gave us a private tour of the historical museum! If I'm ever in the area again, I will definitely stay at The Green Tree Inn!!

It was our pleasure to have you as our guest. One of our favorite things about being an innkeeper is to sit and visit with our guests at breakfast. We feel like it is having friends over for visit. Hope to have you as our guest again. Thank you!

My husband and I stayed at this lovely Inn this week. It was WONDERFUL!!! We watched barges go by on the bench - walked the very historical town, got an up close and personal tour of the museum and their local grocery store!!! We had delicious sweet treats and a grand breakfast!!! We ate a couple of times in Grafton which was also wonderful and also the town of Alton!!! We toured Cahokia Mounds, Lewis & Clark museum and had a tour of the lock and dam in Alton. As we left we toured the college and saw the Treehouse Wildlife Center and saw 5 eagles up close and personal!!!

Wonderful place - truly gourmet breakfasts. Connie & Gary were great hosts - catering to our every need. The room was inviting and bed was comfortable. They have a wonderful common room with a fireplace, hot and cold beverages available all day and sweet treats in the afternoon. Parking is available right by the rooms and each room has an outside entrance with a screened-in porch and porch furniture available. Wish we didn't have to leave!
