What a way to spend your time away from home. Sink into wicker chairs or on a swing for two. Perfect place to visit with each other or friends old & new.Our classic Galena Bed and Breakfast has been known for its hospitality since the 1850's entertaining such figures as U.S. Grant and Abe Lincoln. Today, guests gather each morning in the formal dining room, where a full, hot breakfast is served enhanced by candlelight and great conversation. Complimentary refreshments are available 24hrs/day.

Christmas at the inn is a very special time of year. Guest rooms each have their own special tree and the common rooms are all decked out awaiting the big day.Enter our inn through the original door from 1845 surrounded by beautiful stained glass in rich color tones of that era.
Summer in full bloom!Lush gardens to stroll through make a colorful view when relaxing on the screened porch.
Dr. Edward Bench Room: Just what the doctor ordered… a queen size brass bed, oak dressers, and extra single brass bed for third person. Bright and sunny with a park view, large private bath and shower. 
Minimal extra charge for third person.

J. Russel Jones Room: If you look through the trees, you can see Jones’ masterpiece, the Belvedere Mansion from the windows. This romantic room features a queen size antique white iron bed, walnut dresser, fireplace and private bath with shower.
The McClellan room, the original master bedroom, overlooks the gardens and grounds where U.S. Grant once trained his northern troops.  Retaining the grandeur of times past, the imposing oak bed is softened by a cloud-like silky canopy.  The large corner fireplace creates warmth and majesty. Boasting the largest bath in the home, it includes an original oak pull chain toilet, clawfoot tub, "the best soakers ever made" and brass shower. This room exudes romance, gracefullness and elegance.
