About The Property

So you’ve been searching around for some lodging in Galena.  You’ve checked out hotels, motels, AirBNBs, and traditional B&Bs.  You’ve looked at websites and photos, you’ve read reviews, and compared prices.   Here you are.  On our listing, thinking about making us part of your visit to Galena.  Well, we’re flattered and thrilled to have you here! Allow us to introduce ourselves. Aldrich Guest House was built in 1845 and has been a bed and breakfast since 1984.  Abraham Lincoln hung out here in 1856. Ulysses Grant came to dinner quite often in the late 1800s. Between the two of us, we’ve been in hospitality for over half a century.  We’ve won awards for our home cooked breakfasts, our gardens, and our service. You work hard in real life.  Work, family, volunteering. Come stay with us and relax in an unpretentious, laid-back environment.  Be yourself and let your guard down. Enjoy tasty food that you don’t have to make yourself. Have drinks on us every evening.  Make us your homebase for exploring outdoor activities, shopping, or the history Galena is so well-known for. Let us take care of you. We could tell you that Aldrich Guest House is the best place to stay in Galena.  We could use all the typical worn out and empty words and phrases that you see on every B&B website…”we’re luxurious”, “we’re elegant”, “we’re the best”, “cozy”, “charming”.  Instead, we think you should just come and experience us yourself. Afterall - if you have to say that you’re cool, you probably aren’t.   Come relax with us.

We could tell you about our combined 50+ years in the hospitality/service industry.  We could go on and on about how much we love taking care of our guests.  But you probably already gathered all those things.  Plus, anyone can say those things - we can prove it to you. So, in place of the regular resume that are so often placed here, enjoy 20 Questions With The Innkeepers! How do you spend your ‘down time’? Robert: Knitting, for sure knitting! We take walks every day regardless of the weathe
