The Perfect Escape
Come Relax With Us
You’ve been searching around for lodging in Galena. You’ve checked out hotels, motels, Airbnbs and traditional B&Bs. You’ve looked at websites and photos. You’ve read reviews, and compared prices.
Here you are on our website, thinking about making us part of your visit to Galena.
We’re flattered and thrilled to have you here! Here’s a little about our historic Inn:
We’re the 6th owners of the Aldrich Guest House, which was built in 1845 and has been a bed and breakfast since 1984. Abraham Lincoln hung out here in 1856 and Ulysses Grant came to dinner quite often in the late 1800s.
We’ve been the innkeepers for the last decade, and we love it! Between the two of us, we’ve been in hospitality for over half a century. We’ve won awards for our home cooked breakfasts, our gardens, and our service.
You work hard and you deserve a vacation. Come stay with us and relax in an unpretentious, laid-back environment. Be yourself and let your guard down.
Enjoy tasty food that you don’t have to make yourself. Have drinks on us every evening. Make us your home base for exploring outdoor activities, shopping, or the history Galena is so well-known for. Let us take care of you.
We could tell you that Aldrich Guest House is the best place to stay in Galena. We could use all the worn out words and phrases that you see on every B&B website: “we’re luxurious,” “we’re elegant,” “we’re the best,” “cozy,” “charming.”
Instead, we think you should come and experience Aldrich Guest House for yourself. After all, if someone has to say they’re cool, they probably aren’t.
