I was here a few years ago, and upon this return, was happy to see some updating and freshening up to this historic property. Being a history buff, I love the fact that Grant gave his farewell address from the balcony of this house. The rooms are all ensuite, and comfortable. It should be noted that they do not accept...

My husband and I enjoyed a comfortable clean suite in this historic home . We relaxed were treated very well. The breakfast was lovely. We especially appreciated the fact that they don't book families with children. We were looking for an adult getaway and we found it at the Victorian Mansion. Sally greeted us and was sweet and very helpful....

We had a large group of friends gathering in Galena for a New Years eve celebration, we thought this would be the perfect place, as most of us would prefer separate rooms and bathrooms. We arrived to hear that no children were allowed, per in the inn keeper. The owner hadn't communicated with her that they had arranged for something...

Hi Kayla, We are extremely sorry that your stay was not satisfactory. Your group was a unique situation for us. Because most of the communication was between one member of your group and our owner, there may have been some miscommunication with a group that size. Had we known there were going to be toddlers and not 2 infants we...

We enjoyed our one-night stay at Victorian Mansion. The home is well-kept, and Charlie and Rita were good hosts. We stayed in the Lincoln Room, which while furnished somewhat differently than in the website photo, was comfortable, spacious, quiet and elegant. The bath in this room has a shower, so those wanting a tub bath might ask about their other...

Charlie and Rita were incredibly nice and made our stay so great! They give a great history of the mansion and of the town. Charlie also is very funny and makes for a great experience.

It's like stepping back in time staying here. The furnishings are original. The innkeepers have done very well in keeping the house and grounds up. The suites are spacious and very comfortable. It is within walking distance of downtown Galena. The breakfast provided are all made here and are delicious.
