“Beautiful place in a quaint location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2011

We had a lovely stay at the Green Tree Inn, made to feel so very welcome and the rooms were comfortable, clean & quiet.

Even a power cut the next morning didn't spoil the stay with the owner pulling out all the stops to provide breakfast.

Have a wander around the village too, it won't take long, but there are some great examples of old-style american homes.

Being innkeepers ourselves, we usually choose B&Bs when we travel. It's fun to get to know other innkeepers. It's nice to be on the "receiving side" of innkeeping too! We both slept well in a very comfortable bed. It's been a while since I've slept like that away from home. We were treated to warm hospitality and a delicious breakfast the next morning, and enjoyed "talking shop" with Brenda as we visited during breakfast.

The Green Tree Inn is super clean and comfortable, and is in a great location. I want to return in the spring and summer to see the flower garden. If you are looking for the perfect place for quiet and beauty, Green Tree Inn is where you want to be.

Thank you Brenda, for making our stay perfect!

Elsah is a quaint small village which is also home to a college our daughter has attended the past four years. We have stayed numerous times at this charming, and inviting B & B. The rooms are clean, uncluttered, and air-conditioned, a must for summer visitors to the area. The inn is located barely two blocks from the Mississippi River. The innkeepers are wonderfully gracious people, who make their guests feel welcome and at home, and the breakfasts are superb! It is quiet and the atmosphere is lovely. If you have questions about the area and its attractions, the inn's owners are happy to be of help in any way. We can highly, highly recommend The Green Tree Inn!

  • Liked — Small, quaint, clean, charming, hospitable.
  • Disliked — There are only 5 rooms for rent . . . four are upstairs.
