Charming and historic house, warm and knowledgeable hosts, creative and tasty breakfasts. Should we return to Galena, it would be a pleasure to stay here again. Rita and Charlie were gracious and the house is filled with history. Thank you for a fun few days.

I did not have a good experience at all at the Victorian Mansion. I planned a trip for me and my girlfriends to have a girlfriend weekend in Galena. We do it every year in the fall, pick a cute town full of shopping, winery and more and stay at a bed and breakfast. We rented the Grace Suite which...

Charlie and Rita were the perfect hosts - they met us at the door, showed us to rooms that have to be seen to be appreciated - all the amenities of 2015, but the charm, beauty and luxury of 1860. The location is perfect - two short down hill blocks to the busy main part of town - all part...

We stopped at the Victorian Mansion after a 'local' gave them a high recommendation. He was spot on. We were there 'off-season' and unexpected, yet Rita greeted us with a friendly hello. Without a reservation? No problem, she asked if we'd like to see the room she had available. It was lovely, though I, at five feet, almost needed a...

We wanted to run away from our everyday life and stressful work. The Victorian Mansion offered the perfect setting for good rest and escape from reality. Hosts were very welcoming and the room was ideal for a couple wanting to spend a cozy and romantic night. The location of the house offers quick access to Main Street with it's shops...

We had decided last minute to get away to Gelena for the night. We are new to the Midwest and heard great things about the town. We wanted to go snowboarding at Chestnut Mountain and then head to the B&B. Rita asked when we would like to check in. We said 6. They promptly checked us in and spoke about...

This was our first time visiting Galena and we picked a great place to stay. Not sure why some reviewers found fault with Charlie and Rita, because we found them to be very personable and pleasant. We were made to feel right at home from the start, but we weren't hovered over. Our room was very nice, very comfortable, and...

I loved all the history that Rita and Charlie told about the Victorian Mansion. They are a sweet couple. We took a trolly ride through town, that was very interesting. The driver also talked a lot about Galena's history. I highly recommend you do the Trolly Tours. The Victorian Mansion is within walking distance from town, but you have to...

Took a few days and went to Galena. First time there. Great for shopping and history. Our hosts were friendly and we really enjoyed the information about Galena after breakfast. It was nice to have them interact with the guests with their historical knowledge. The history of the house is very interesting. We stayed on the 3rd floor in the...
