A Home Away From Home

5 on April 02, 2014

I have found my favorite Bed & Breakfast in Galena! Aldrich Guest House Bed & Breakfast is the place to stay. Brian and Fran are fantastic hosts, and I am happy to now call them friends. My room had a warm and comfy feel and I loved having my own private bath and fireplace! The bed was just the right amount of soft, so I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. It was a quick walk to downtown so no worries about driving after my wine tasting :) I definitely will stay again.


Winter getaway

5 on January 14, 2014

Me and my fiance took a winter 4 day weekend in Galena. We were also scouting places to hold our small wedding in June 2015. The residence was beautiful. The yard looked spacious and with some summer imagination I could see that it would be a beautiful place for a wedding. The walk to downtown Galena was around 3 blocks. I enjoyed staying off the main drag for sleeping. The host were wonderful and helpful. Breakfast was amazing especially the cinnamon bun pancakes.


Great Guest House!

the walls are thin in this beautiful Victorian home, we were unable to take an afternoon nap for the doorbell ringing frequently, there was no tv in the room, but understandably with the walls so thin. but furnishings lovely, meal outstanding & hospitality top notch


Luminaria weekend in Galena

5 on December 18, 2013

This was our first stay in Galena in the winter, though we've stayed frequently in the summer. As always the Aldrich House is one of the high points of our stay. Fran and Brian do a wonderful job and it feels more like visiting friends. Highly recommend this B&B.
