We stayed one night, due to an event in the area. Charlie and Rita were accommodating with our need to check in early and quickly. The room was very comfortable. At breakfast the next morning, we were surprised to learn about the history of the area and of the house—Charlie and Rita are very knowledgeable—and learned that the room we slept in the same room as a former president. I didn't spend nearly enough time lounging on any of the three porches, but we did play a game of pool after breakfast. I recommend the home for a leisurely evening for those who love history and beautiful, peaceful surroundings.

This was mine and my boyfriends first time at a B&B and it was fantastic! Charlie and Rita were amazing they made you feel right at home. We always had everything we needed. Highly recommend this place we will definitely be going back.

The weekend at the Victorian Mansion was great. The innkeepers Charlie and Rita were very cordial, The Grace Room was spacious and clean. The location was within walking distance of downtown. We would recommend this B&B to our friends and family.

I had never been to a bed an breakfast but I always wanted to try it and I figured small town Galena would be a perfect setting. Charlie and Rita were wonderful hosts and I couldn't have had a more perfect first experience. Full warm breakfast prepared by Rita was fantastic! Wine and Cheese the first night really gave us the opportunity to acquaint ourselves with the other guests. Charlie and Rita had so much knowledge and provided almost a mini history lesson on Galena. Great Place to go for a weekend. Absolutely loved it!

we stayed at the mansion for a long weekend and genrally enjoyed galena and our stay. The room was clean and relativley comfortable (even thought not well air conditioned). The biggest issue with our stay was the nosy and overbearing hosts. Having traveled to galena a few times we knew our way around however the caretakers always wanted to know where we were going or always seemed to know something 'better" to do. We also felt like we were obligated to have breakfast every morning otherwise the caretakers were not happy with you. We actually skipped breakfast after showing up for the first one (which wasn't that great) due to being assigned an early breakfast without being asked our preference for a time, when we later found out we could have chosen a later one but were "assigned" one convenient for the hosts (we're not early risers when we're on vacation). If you enjoy cruise ships you'll enjoy this place being told what to do and when to do it doesn't work for us. Oh the morning we checked out, the caretakers turned off our satellite tv in our room for missing breakfast. how riduculous is that? i would recommend if the caretakers were replaced. they either don't like what they do or don't handle diverse needs and preferences well.

The Victorian Mansion is a beautiful bed and breakfast with a rich history. It's a short walk from the Main Street in Galena. Rita and Charlie are welcoming and enjoyable to visit with. We highly recommend staying here!

My spouse and I needed a break from the prolonged northern winter and drove south to Galena, IL for a touch of spring in April of 2011. The Victorian Mansion sits with grace and dignity on a hill just west of downtown. The city is delightful, with its setting on the river, and steep bluffs on either side, punctuated by beautiful old brick homes and businesses, and church steeples. We found the surroundings to be delightful. The Victorian Mansion itself is a good representation of its era, comfortable and cozy for sitting, reading and conversing on the first floor. Our room on the 3rd floor was clean and functional, but no superlatives could be found. The innkeepers were most gracious and provided a wine and cheese get-together at 5pm, a great way to engage other guests and learn from the innkeepers about the history of the area. They clearly enjoyed their role and seemed genuinely interested in their guests. However, we did find the breakfasts a bit disappointing, expecting fresh baked muffins, breads and jellies. After all, the other B is breakfast, and one would have expected a more lavish and creative repast. The advantage of staying at the Victorian Mansion is its proximity to the old downtown, using the steps at the end of the street. We definitely want to return to Galena and sample more of its charms.

After careful research on the B&B selection in Galena, we chose the Victorian Mansion. Everything about the stay from the reservation phone call to the parting words from the innkeepers was perfect! The house itself is full of local history which the innkeepers (Rita and Charlie) are more than happy to tell about over wine and cheese upon arrival. We also received a tour of all the rooms which truly made me want to come back to try them all. Every room has its own unique and inviting personality that makes me feel more comfortable and welcome than any hotel I have ever stayed in. Either way you look at it, driving or walking, main street shopping doesn't get any closer. From the mansion at the top of the hill you are a short walk from several flights of stairs that take you directly to the main street below or a 2 minute drive. Breakfast was incredible! I actually asked to find out how Rita made her potatoes as they were the best I have ever had. The fresh fruit and eggs benedict were top notch and very satisfying! We most definitely did not leave hungry! A place my family and I will definitely be returning to and I will recommend The Victorian Mansion to all my friends!

A beautiful place to stay with a great deal of history. Gracious and funny innkeepers. But for the price I would expect the rooms to be refreshed(empty trash and replace the plastic glasses). Also One might expect a pitcher of juice on the table to refill a glass or two. We usually find a guide to the inn in our room but not here. All in all I highly recommend the inn, but you are paying for the history and the season.

This is my second stay and all of my expectations were exceeded again. Rita and Charlie are incredible hosts and made this trip well worth it. The history of the house is amazing! This was my girlfriends first trip to Galena and she wants to come back already. The freshly made breakfast to the outstanding wine and cheese just added to the ambiance. We will be back soon!
