Connie makes such delicious food and Gary is a great conversationalist! Really really nice people that's make your stay that much better! If your looking for a really nice, quiet place to stay, this is for you!

First and foremost the Green Tree Inn is the best B&B we have ever experienced and we have visited B&Bs across the country and in Europe. For me the real highlight was that the guest quarters were totally separate from the owners' living quarters. You don't feel you are intruding on them. You have a great bedroom and bath but the guests also have their own communal living room with a TV, library, coffee/tea machine, kitchen plus Connie's wonderful baked goods. It is a great way to meet the other guests. I owe an apology to Connie and Gary for the lateness of this review but time has just gotten away from me. They were wonderful hosts while we were there and we enjoyed their company very much not forgetting Connie's delicious breakfast and the aforementioned evening baked goods. They really like running their B&B and it really shows.

Thank you for such a glowing review. We also love that we have our own space. I think that helps us continue to love being innkeepers.

This B & B is a delightful gem, all decorated for the Christmas Holiday. Elsah is a village a National Historic Landmark just off the Great River Road and a short walk to the Mississippi. We found our room #1 immaculate and cozy. Connie and Gary welcomed us to their establishment with fresh cookies. Breakfast was wonderful as well. We definitely would recommend this stylish place to the most discriminating traveler without hesitation, be it a couple, family or groups.

Room Tip: There are several rooms on the ground level that would accomodate the handicapped.

Connie and Gary are #1 Inn Keepers!! They make you feel so comfortable and treat you like family, but never let you lift a finger! :) Food was cooked in down home deliciousness, every room was immaculate and soothing and walking and exploring the community of the historical little village of Elsah is truly a joy! This is the best bed and breakfast I have ever been in and do plan to go back. They are planning a Honeymoon Suite in an adjacent on site building and wow, sure wish I was young again! I know it's going to be created with love and style!

Connie our host made our stay at the Green Tree a delight. Immaculate room with a delicious breakfast. Elsah established in the 1840's is rich in history. A drive through Principa College is worthwhile offering a stunning view of the Mississippi. Connie even opened up the museum in town for a private tour. You will enjoy you stay at the Green Tree in Elsah.

We really enjoyed our time in Elsah/Grafton. The best part was where we stayed. The room we stayed in was outstanding. The Inn is kept neat and they enjoy antiquing and have several interesting pieces that I never had seen before. Very,Very good breakfast and the afternoon cookies/cakes were greatly appreciated. I would recommend this to anyone that is planning trip down the Mississippi /Illinois/Missouri rivers.. You couldn't have better owners than Connie and Gary. And you must pet Elsie (not sure of spelling) the cat...

Room Tip: We stayed in the hummingbird room however all of the rooms are outstanding.
