We have stayed at The Great House numerous times when visiting Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. Betty is a wonderful host, and the house is beautiful, well decorated, comfortable and roomy. Breakfasts are great, and the rooms are themed and comfortable. Highly recommended!

We stayed in the Lincoln room. It had so much space which was perfect because apparently, our stay happened to be during the coldest days of the year so we needed to stay inside much of the time! In fact, one night, we ordered pizza and Betty let the delivery man take it straight up to our room! Clearly, there... More

This is not the first time we have stayed with Betty, our/your pleasant and knowledgeable hostess. She is a wonderful resource of all things presidential and especially her favorite topic 'First Ladies'. So, have a chat with her and learn a things about our country's presidents and their families. Her home is so inviting! Each room has its own charm--all... More

Great House was our first ever B&B experience, and we were so impressed! We've stayed there three times for events at Knox College, and look forward to our next visit. Each of the four upstairs bedrooms is tastefully furnished with antiques, dressers and plenty of room to hang clothes. All have ensuite bathrooms; some have fireplaces. Everything's clean as a...

Our visit to Galesburg was family oriented, and my Wife and I were looking for an alternative to the standard hotel in the area. B&B's are a treat for us, and we decided to give Great House a try because of the close proximity of our family. I was greeted with a friendly smile followed by a brief history of... More

First of all, we are a family of 4 and this was our first time in Galesburg, and, except for my husband, the first time staying in a B&B. Such a wonderful experience for all of us! Our hostess and home owner, Betty, is a sweet and delightful lady. The love and passion she has for the history of her... More

Betty was a great hostess whose House is worthy of the title. Stayed three nights total after a bicycle tour and found the location right near downtown superb. Breakfast was a quality meal each morning and Betty was very helpful in all aspects of our stay. Learned much of Galesburg history during our visit, right down to the important history... More

We were in town with my parents for our son's graduation from Knox College. Betty was a fabulous hostess. Very hospitable and knowledgeable. Both rooms were very well decorated and had really comfortable beds. Breakfast for our two mornings was delicious. Betty was especially accommodating as we had other guests in town who came over to visit at the house.... More

Arrived with a family of four and was warmly welcomed. The room was beautiful and the beds were comfortable. The whole family slept sound and well. Had a great time watching thunderstorms through the windows one night. We were traveling by train and had a few special requests, such as dropping off our baggage early. Everything went so well.
