“Derinda House”
Reviewed July 26, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We enjoyed the quiet location and the friendly hostess. She helped us find the places we wanted to visit and she made delicious breakfasts. We also enjoyed the netflex at night.

“We Could Not Have Been Happier”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Derinda House is a one-of-a-kind find. The house itself is elegant and you can tell it's been lovingly decorated and cared for with classical paintings and beautiful pieces everywhere. The owner is a wonderful host, and the breakfast was way more than we had thought it would be. We ordered the optional dinner the night we arrived and were WOWed...it could have come from the kitchen of a favorite restaurant. (Two of us had Salmon, and two had the Rustic Italian. Both were fantastic.)
The beds are very comfortable, and there are plenty of great pillows (a definite plus in my book.) The living area has great seating. There is a working fireplace for cold nights, and a fire pit in the yard if you're tempted to sit out by a campfire.
It's close enough to Galena to make the drive easy, but it's out in the country so you can get away from the crowd. And, the deck overlooking the peaceful back yard is delightful.
We would definitely go back the next time we're in the area.

“Great Girls getaway”

The home is very comfy and cozy. The owners live down stairs and we heard nothing. The best part is the welcoming hospitality along with a great breakfast provided by Sandy. Back yard view is beautiful and beds are quite comfortable.

“Wonderful stay”

We stayed over the new year and had a wonderful stay! The house is spacious, clean and homey. Beautifully decorated and comfortable beds too. I didn't see it advertised but there's a hideaway bed so 6 of us stayed comfortably. Sandy was so accommodating on check in time and breakfast time! Breakfast was top notch too! The only thing I could have wanted was a hot tub after a long days skiing. Worth the drive out of galena with a beautiful view.

“The property was very comfortable and relaxing, and the service was excellent!”

We very much enjoyed our stay at Derinda House B and B. The location of the house (country setting) and the space available made for a relaxing weekend for us all. Being able to spread out into the living room/ dining room, kitchen, and deck made it feel like home away from home. Sandy was very friendly and gave good suggestions for area sites to see. We plan to return for another weekend of exploring the area!

“Fantastic Girls Weekend”
Reviewed October 4, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I and my sister stayed here Friday and Saturday night. It's such a nice place with all the comforts of home. Our host was wonderful. It's located just a few minutes outside Galena, IL where we shopped till we dropped.

Breakfast each morning was delicious. When we arrive Friday afternoon we were greeted with oatmeal raisin cookies which were to die for. The beds are very comfortable as was the total feel our stay.

I highly recommend this location to couples or families. There are two bedrooms and two full baths. One bath is part of the master.

We loved our stay and look forward to coming back.
