A slice of Heaven

5 on October 25, 2014

My sister and I enjoyed a three day stay at the Green Tree Inn. The owners are very streadfast to ensure your stay with them is the best. They truly make this Inn a cozy, welcoming place to stay. No worries, wonderful with any needs we had and already, we have booked another room in December of this year. If you want top quality and enjoy being pampered, look no further than the Green Tree Inn in Elsah, IL. PS: The food is out of this world, yes, a slice of Heaven.


Off the beaten path luxury

My husband and I had a wonderful stay. He is always reluctant to book a B & B why I don't understand. The Green Tree Inn made him a believer. Connie makes you feel like family. Her snacks and breakfast were delicious. The critic I brought with me was even impressed and wants to return. The bed was comfortable The rooms were very nice and everything was neat and clean.


Lovely place to get away

We enjoyed our stay at the Green Tree Inn so much! The rooms were beautiful, breakfast was yummy, and Connie was a perfect hostess. We will visit again!


Great Time at Green Tree

This bed and breakfast was the perfect place to spend a relaxing time in lovely Elsah, Ill. The accommodations were great with a comfy bed, clean modern bathroom and TV. The breakfast was delicious, we had bacon and egg cups with stuffed French toast and strawberries! The proprietor was friendly, helpful and quiet knowledgeable about what to do in the area. We will return to the Green Tree!


perfect night

We stayed one wonderful night at Green Tree and were completely satisfied by the accommodations,service and food. Connie is a delight to know and a host who obviously wants he guests to have the best possible stay at her inn.


Principia Alum...stay here!

5 on July 02, 2014

We were in town for the Principia Reunion...and yes we stayed at the dorms. Never again...as the fabulous Green Tree Inn in a stones throw from campus and uber comfortable. The beds were super comfortable, Connie the innkeeper was accommodating and even pointed out the local deer who went walking past. The rooms were bright and clean, the breakfast was delicious and they had real COFFEE. Oh it was a treat. We will be returning again and again...while I love visiting the campus, I don't need to stay in a dorm room when I know Green Tree Inn is just down the hill. Thank you Connie for the warm visit and the cookies we took on our plane trip home.


A Wonderful Retreat

We wanted to get away from life and this was a great place to do just that! We enjoyed our comfortable room and the quiet setting. Connie was very friendly and put us at ease. All of the food was fantastic, from lemon bars upon arrival to a delicious breakfast in the morning. We will have great memories of this place and hope to return at some point!


Delightful and Delicious!!

Brought my mom on an overnight trip for her birthday. Lots of antiquing in the surrounding communities! The Green Tree Inn B&B was a great find! Our room, the only one with 2 beds, was absolutely charming - beautifully decorated in a soft and soothing pale mint green with 5 white shuttered windows that let in lots of natural light! Plenty of in-room lighting as well, plus a ceiling fan that is quiet and felt wonderful (didn't even need the air conditioner!). No TV in this room, but that's ok because there is a lovely and comfortable sitting area downstairs with TV (although we didn't need it), antiques to look at and interesting books to read. B&B was impeccably clean and well-maintained. Breakfast was a delight. Connie is an excellent cook and hostess - fresh fruit and yogurt, peach blueberry baked pancakes, and egg, cheese & ham cups. All absolutely delicious! Oh, and there were homemade treats awaiting our arrival last night - snickerdoodle cookies and some kind of yummy chocolate caramel bars! Be prepared to be asked if you have any food allergies or foods you don't like because that level of consideration is a part of their hospitality. If you are looking for a relaxing and inviting place to stay, you can't do any better than this! Wander around this quaint historic village to feel like you stepped back in time. And if you are here on a Thurs, Fri, Sat or Sun, you can get a wonderful lunch just a stone's throw away at The Cultured Table Bistro (starting sometime in July they will also be open for dinner-check their website!). THANK YOU to Connie and Gary for such a delightful experience! If we are down this way again, we will definitely be back!


Just lovely, in every way!

The Green Tree Inn is a gem! My husband and I have stayed in many B and B's across the US over the last ten years and this one ranks at the top of the list. In every way, this was the experience that we look for in this type of lodging. The room and grounds were clean and well-kept and breakfast was delicious and filling. In addition, there were extra touches like late-afternoon snacks and complimentary water, soda, coffee throughout the day. These are all important ingredients to a successful B and B, but the key component that makes a stay memorable is the warm hospitality of the owners. It's apparent that Connie and Gary take pride in their establishment and love people. We felt as though they were old friends. If you are planning a trip up the River Road, Grafton offers a lot of activity, from wineries, to zip-lining to fun nightlife. But when it's time to step away, refresh and enjoy the serenity of a beautiful historic town, the Green Tree Inn in Elsah fits the bill. We had a wonderful time and hope to return again soon.


Just like, no, better than home!

This is my second time to the Green Tree Inn. Both visits were wonderful. I stayed in the Meadowlark Room each time, and this room is so cozy and comfortable. I rested very well in the bed, just like I was at home. The bedrooms and common rooms are clean, and also well decorated without being fussy. Makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. Greg and Connie are so friendly and hospitable, and again I felt like I was at home. The food is great. We got wonderful treats in the afternoon, and yummy breakfast in the morning. A great variety of beverages available all of the time. Several of us ladies traveled together to celebrate birthdays, and we had fun playing games at the dining room table in the evening, sitting outside on the back porch in the rocking chairs, watching the chipmunks and hummingbirds, taking pictures in the garden, and walking the beautiful village of Elsah. This is a great place to unwind and relax. Would recommend to anyone.
