First visit to this area but will definitely return!! The village is beautiful! We were met with smiles and friendly conversation! Our room was beautiful, clean and private. All the little extras that make staying at a bed and breakfast special!! We will return!!

Amazing experience with Connie and her family! Feels like home from home. Homemade cookies on arrival, access to a kitchen with all the food! Bikes in the garage, wonderful breakfast, the rooms were delightful. Everything about this B&B is perfect from the setting of Elsah,the rooms, the food but it's the hospitality of Connie and her family that make this a special place.

A superb value, comfortable room, and great food. A incredible retreat close to St Louis but it may as well be 1000 miles away for the quiet and peace. The hosts are wonderful, and they even have a little antique shop! Probably the best traditional B&B in the St Louis area. Elsah is a real gem, really like stepping back in time, and the hosts wonderfully integrated their B&B into that experience.

Room Tip: All the rooms appeared to be good.

Our family stayed there for two days and two nights, Connie and Gary helped us make our visit comfortable and nice.
Connie served a rich and wonderfull breakfast and baked tasty cookies - and we all felt really at home.

Green Tree Inn in Elsah is a marvelous place. Our family visited the inn in July 2013. The rooms are very beautiful – all are of high quality. Green Tree Inn has a lot of facilities that we used and felt like at home. Connie and Gary took wonderful care of us and advised us for what to see and do in the lovely surroundings. Connie made fantastic breakfast and also cookies for the afternoon coffee and tea. Very safe and quite place with wonderful people. Tove From Jørgensen, Denmark.

We found Green Tree Inn by accident when Springfield, IL, turned out to be a very boring stop on our road trip. We were warmly welcomed by Gary and Connie and we ended up staying a day more even though we had another reservation in St. Louis.

My husband I had a pleasant stay at this fabulous Bed and Breakfast. We enjoyed the leisure walk thru the village, a quiet night sleep, a spectacular breakfast. Connie welcomed us with her yummy cookies and great coffee in the evening. I will recommend this place to everyone for a getaway!!! We are planning to visit again by fall.
