Stayed here with wife and kids while visiting a local college. Connie was very gracious and accommodating. Room was very comfortable and nicely decorated and breakfast was incredible. General use area was also roomy and cozy. Would definitely stay again if in the area!

So happy we got to be a positive part of your college tour. Depending on the college choice, hopefully we will have an opportunity to host your family again. We love it when we get to know families well during their child's 4 year college career. We appreciate the kind words and your time in doing a review.

We love it when guests choose Green Tree Inn to celebrate birthdays. I love having the opportunity to surprise them with their favorite kind of cake. With all the craziness in the world, it is nice to be able to focus on small things that make people smile.

We stayed here during the Christmas holidays and a lot of the homes were open to visit. ( From the 1800's ). Also had horse and buggy rides for free to take you around town. The room at the inn was great and the Host and Hostess were very nice people

So happy you had the opportunity to visit during our annual Holiday Open House Tour. Our guests love getting to see inside the original houses and hear their history. Taking a horse drawn carriage ride around the village is just an added bonus. So glad you enjoyed your room and visiting with Gary and I. We appreciate you taking time...

The Green Tree Inn was just the thing to celebrate my birthday with my hubby! We were welcomed by owner/hostess-with-the-most-est Connie and lovely yums (caramel crunch bars . . . must get the recipe!) upon our arrival. Our room was oh-so-comfy and super clean, and had those extra special touches that are so thoughtful. The common area and the little...

We had a great time. The rooms were clean, the food was delicious, the host were excellent, the scenery was gorgeous. We would definitely recommend staying here. Elsah is a peaceful little village that allows you to imagine yourself in a simpler time and place, and Gary and Connie provide a relaxing, restful environment in which to do so.
