My husband and I decided to go to The Victorian Mansion for our anniversary. My husband was responsible for picking out the bed and breakfast. I have to say they did a great job. We arrived late on a Friday evening and were greeted by both Charlie and Rita. They went through the house at the time, went over a... More

We had such high hopes but unfortunately I have nothing good to say about my experience! Charlie and Rita were very unprofessional, they went out of their way to be rude and make us feel unwelcome. They had way too many rules for us to feel relaxed even in our suite. I have never had a worse experience. After a... More

We chose our room online because of the elegant furniture seen in the picture. The furniture was not the same as in the picture and disappointing. I didn't appreciate that we had to be downstairs at exactly 8:30 and how were we suppose to do that without an alarm clock in the room? I understand the rules concerning certain beverages... More

Thank you for accommodating our family in such a lovely fashion. The kids had a lovely time and were made to feel very welcome, and the rooms were simply lovely. You couldn't beat the breakfast either. This is a perfectly appointed, beautifully furnished Victorian mansion with all the modern conveniences, as long as you understand the rooms are period rooms.... More

I would not recommend anyone stay here. The inn keepers are rude and unprofessional. When an unpredictable situation arose they were unable to handle the situation. My friends and I were treated so rudely by Rita and Charlie that we ended leaving early and staying at a hotel down the street. Rita and Charlie need to take a class in... More

My husband and I have been going to Galena every year for the past seven years. Most of our stays have been at the lovely Victorian Mansion. The times that we stayed elsewhere, we were disappointed. Rita and Charlie are awesome hosts and go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. It is... More

Illinois was in the midst of a stretch of bitter cold and the Victorian Mansion once more provided a warm, cozy and friendly retreat. This was our third visit to the Victorian Mansion and we looked forward to the hospitality that we have come to expect from Rita and Charlie. We were not disappointed. After settling into the warm and... More
