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... More

This was our first experience with a B&B and we have to say it was excellent. From the minute we got there to when we left, Charlie and Rita were very nice people and friendly and accommodating. The mansion has so much history which they will tell you about after breakfast on Saturday. We had the Lincoln room and it... More

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. Our room, The Estey Suite was so great and romantic. The Mansion is right by the town and makes it very easy to walk there... More

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.

Charming and historic house, warm and knowledgeable hosts, creative and tasty breakfasts. Should we return to Galena, it would be a pleasure to stay here again. Rita and Charlie were gracious and the house is filled with history. Thank you for a fun few days.

I did not have a good experience at all at the Victorian Mansion. I planned a trip for me and my girlfriends to have a girlfriend weekend in Galena. We do it every year in the fall, pick a cute town full of shopping, winery and more and stay at a bed and breakfast. We rented the Grace Suite which... More

Charlie and Rita were the perfect hosts - they met us at the door, showed us to rooms that have to be seen to be appreciated - all the amenities of 2015, but the charm, beauty and luxury of 1860. The location is perfect - two short down hill blocks to the busy main part of town - all part... More

We stopped at the Victorian Mansion after a 'local' gave them a high recommendation. He was spot on. We were there 'off-season' and unexpected, yet Rita greeted us with a friendly hello. Without a reservation? No problem, she asked if we'd like to see the room she had available. It was lovely, though I, at five feet, almost needed a... More

We wanted to run away from our everyday life and stressful work. The Victorian Mansion offered the perfect setting for good rest and escape from reality. Hosts were very welcoming and the room was ideal for a couple wanting to spend a cozy and romantic night. The location of the house offers quick access to Main Street with it's shops... More
