Everything was so exquisite. You really feel transported in time. This home has such a great positive energy to it. We are really looking forward to staying here overnight next time we visit.

From Cheri B:The Innkeepers, Wendy & Bill, were wonderful hosts, home is gorgeous, and my room was lovely and very inviting. I so much enjoyed the gazebo and the peaceful feeling I enjoyed my entire time at the Mansion. Wendy has the sweetest nature with helpful advice where to eat. She even took my picture with the beautiful and tasty... More

My significant other and I needed a quiet weekend away. This was our first B & B experience, and we loved it! We both agreed that we would return to the Ryan Mansion again. Upon arriving, we were greeted by the innkeepers' daughters, Olivia (in full costume). She gave us a tour of the house and made us feel very... More

Wendy, Bill and Olivia made us feel like members of the family when we stayed at the Ryan Mansion. We felt as though we travelled backwards in time 135 years. What a delightful experience! We can't wait to stay there again. Hopefully, soon! The breakfast was delicious and Minnie's room was charming and comfortable with incredible attention to detail.

This B & B is also open for tours starting at 10am. It's a beautiful house but the main focus seems to be on the tours and not on the B&B part, so I would recommend finding another inn closer to downtown galena and just driving to see this one for a tour.

We had never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast like this, and we loved the historic quality and charm of The Ryan Mansion! We stayed in the Ryan Suite, which had a very comfortable, romantic looking bed. There was a whirlpool tub in the room as well, between the bedroom section and the separate sitting room. It was nice to... More

We just returned from a trip to Galena. My husband and I stayed at the Ryan Mansion. Bill showed us around and shared a good bit of information about the mansion, its renovations, and answered all of our questions about the area and things to do. He even let us in on a beautiful secret spot to see the Mississippi... More

Some Ryan features are very nice and some are lacking. Overall, the mansion is beautiful and the owners are doing a great job restoring it. However, I didn’t find it very restful or comfortable. As my wife put it, it’s like staying in a museum. LOCATION: It’s on a busy stretch of Hwy 20 - there are hotels on each... More
