My wife and I had an amazing stay at Stillman Inn. Dave and Bernadine were so friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was amazing. Bernadine is a great cook. They had pie, cookies, and ice cream bars if you get hungry. The Inn is in a beautiful setting on a hill overlooking Galena. We had a terrific stay.

Our stay at the Stillman Inn was awesome. Dave and Bernadine are great hosts, making you feel right at home. Not to mention the best homemade breakfasts!! Our room was super comfortable with an awesome fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Everything was neat and clean, and Dave was very attentive to any requests. We will be back!

Breakfast was excellent. Owners were friendly and very good to be sure we had everything we needed. They were informative about area attractions. They have a wedding chapel that is beautiful on the grounds. House is very old if you like that feel. The room we were in was very nicely done. We enjoyed our stay.

We must admit we were not fans of B&Bs, but Bernadine's really changed our minds. What a peaceful and cozy environment, absolutely beautiful place. Dave and Bernadine spoiled us with their great breakfast menus, made especially to our liking. We would never stay anywhere else!!

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for our anniversary. I honestly could not have asked for more. Beautiful! The honeymoon sweet was everything and more. But the best part was Dave and Bernadine. Some of the nicest people I've ever met. They'll cater to your every need. We're definitely going back again!
