We are following both the CDC guidelines, local and state public health guidelines and the information coming out daily from the governor regarding current infection rates and projections. Our primary focus is to insure that we can provide the same high quality personalized hospitality in the safest environment possible. While we cannot give an exact date for reopening, here are some things we are implementing for guest safety: 1) 2 night minimum stays with 48 hours between overnights so that each room can be thoroughly sanitized. 2) Masks must be worn in public areas where guests cannot maintain a 6 foot distance to other guests. 3) Breakfasts/dinners will be served to guests at staggered tables that are more that 6 feet apart. 4) Innkeepers will wear masks and gloves when serving guests and preparing food. 5) Innkeepers will wear masks and gloves when cleaning rooms. 6) Common areas will be regularly sanitized and disinfected. 7) Automatic hand sanitizer stations will be installed on both floors. 8)Baked goods will be individually wrapped and served to each room. 9) We will bring back individual single use bottled water. 10) Coffee will be offered per room rather than communally. 11) Decorative pillows will be removed from rooms. 12) Amenities will be limited to 1 per room, additional can be requested as needed.

**Just a quick note regarding Covid-19. Being immaculately clean is nothing new to us. We continue to do so with even more focus on common touch points so you'll probably see us disinfecting railings, doorknobs, light switches, etc. more than normal. Additionally, being such a large house, we're able to accommodate social distancing when necessary. For meals and evening drinks, we'll be able to space people throughout the parlor, the dining room, the library, the screened in porch, and we're even happy to offer in-room breakfast if that makes you feel more comfortable! Lastly, out of consideration for our guests, you'll see us wearing masks while preparing/serving food and drinks, as well as when interactions prohibit us from maintaining the recommended personal distance. Being a big house in a small town surrounded by loads of outdoor activities and no crowds, Aldrich Guest House and Galena are a perfect pairing for you to relax and take a breath of fresh air. Let us be your happy place!** So you’ve been searching around for some lodging in Galena. You’ve checked out hotels, motels, AirBNBs, and traditional B&Bs.
