If you're looking for a great get away, I would highly recommend the Belle Aire. My boyfriend and I stayed their for a romantic night on our anniversary. We were delighted by the features of our suite. The pictures on the website of the Canopy Suite do not do it justice! The bedside whirlpool was wonderful and the fireplace was so relaxing. The Suite itself was large and decorated beautifully. Finally, the hospitality of our Innkeepers, Jan and Lorraine, was enough to make us want to return to the Belle Aire for our next stay in Galena.

I recently stayed at Belle Aire as a getaway with my girlfriend. Everything was what I wanted and I can not stress enough how hospitable Jan and Lorraine were during our stay. The best part was is I requested some things to be present in the room upon our arrival (flowers and wine) and Jan and Lorraine staged these items in the room. It really made the experience that much better knowing that these innkeepers would take time out of their day to run and grab these items for me. I would have paid for their time to grab these items but they only charged me for the price of the wine and the flowers even though I insisted on paying more. Thank You Jan and Lorraine!
