Recent guest reviews

Robert and Douglas, owners of Aldrich House in Galena invariably produce fantastic meals, comforting accommodations, and stimulating conversation as they educate about Galena and as guests share with one another. Do not miss a chance to stay at this inn!

It was our first time to Galena and we chose Aldrich house due to the updated furnishings. The pictures did not disappoint! Our a comodations were beautiful-comfy bed and relaxing side porch where we spent a lot of time. Robert and Douglas were perfect host! You should definitely stay here!

My daughter and I had a wonderful visit to Aldrich House. My husband and I had been there several times before so I knew it would be the perfect setting for our adult mother-daughter trip. As always, the ambience was elegant and comfortable. It’s relaxing to be in those carefully decorated surroundings and to know that you will start every day with a masterfully prepared breakfast. I can’t imagine staying in any B & B or hotel where more attention is paid to making guests feel comfortable and cared for. We had a delightful time.

Beautuful historical home in history rich Galena. Every comfort is provided including cocktail hour, lovely screened porch. Beautiful gardens. Elegant, delicious breakfast served. Walkable to historic downtown.

This was our 4th stay at the Aldrich Guest House! When visiting Galena we don't even think about staying anywhere else. We love Robert and Douglas and feel like family when we see them. The minute we leave we are already thinking about our next visit. Everything from the comfort of the bed, to the most delicious breakfast in the morning, are just perfect!. We have nothing but good things to say to anyone that asks!

This was our first time staying at a B&B. From the welcoming emails with info to being welcomed at the door, Douglas and Robert were great! So helpful and kind. Also the breakfast the next day was fresh and delicious! Next visit to Galena we will definitely be back. Thanks again!

Both my husband and myself have a birthday and our anniversary within one week. This is the second year we have spent part of that week at the Aldrich in Galena. This home is beautiful, immaculate, and shared by two delightful innkeepers. Douglas and Robert are the epitome of graciousness with just the right dose of humor and will make you feel welcomed from the moment their great big green door opens! Their breakfasts,using locally sourced foods, are a reason to get to the table at 8.30 sharp and cocktail hour on the porch, overlooking their award winning garden, is not to be missed. You will not be disappointed if you stay at the Aldrich Guest House.

Small family reunion at this wonderful B&B. The inn keepers did everything to make the trip wonderful. The guest house is cozy and inviting. The food was wonderful. The hospitality was amazing! Thank you for making my family so welcome.

On our first visit we chose this b&b because of other reviews and now that we have stayed here we agree. The rooms are comfortable with nice linens, our own air conditioning system, period furniture and other touches, but the best part was the food. Breakfast was first class. The proprietors were pleasant, fountain of knowledge of the area, and so accommodating so much to as even carry our luggage up the beautiful stairway. If visiting Galena don’t stay anywhere else. And the 5 pm cocktails are great!

Lovely inn- tranquil setting and saturated with American history. The innkeepers have carefully restored the inn which boasts a cozy library and restful screened porch for relaxing with a glass of wine or mug of fresh coffee . The innkeepers are very gifted hosts- knowledgeable, kind and helpful and warmly welcome their guests with homemade treats. Their breakfast would easily qualify as a feature article in a glossy magazine- artistically served and every morsel proved to be mouthwateringly delicious. If you are lucky they might still have a future vacancy / because we will talk it up to our fellow traveling friends as a “don’t miss “ stop! Thanks ,Robert and Douglas, for a perfect stay!!!!
