We stayed in the bungalow for a cozy romantic weekend away. Our hosts Lorainne and Jan were outstanding. The made sure we needed for nothing. The bungalow was beautiful, fireplace added the special touch. Cookies in the room every day, and fantastic homemade breakfast and entertaining conversation in the morning. We've already booked to come back again after the holidays.... More

The Belle Aire Mansion is a wonderful, beautiful place to stay! The room was very nice and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious! However, the main reason we would rate this a 10 is because of the owners, Jan and Lorraine! They are two of the nicest people we have ever met. They are so friendly and helpful. I had... More

It was a five star stay in a five star town. Getting away from the stress of the workweek finds a place of rest in Belle Aire Mansion.

After deciding to take a spontaneous trip to Galena over Memorial Day weekend we weren't sure if we could find a place to stay. Having checked on the internet, most places were either already booked, required a 2 night stay, or over priced. We were pleasantly pleased when we found the Belle Aire Mansion had a room still available. The... More

Love the Belleaire Mansion! Stayed here about 15 years ago, when my wife and I started dating, and it was our first overnight getaway as a couple. So, for our 10th wedding anniversary, I surprised my wife by booking the same room again. It was just as we remembered it! Jan and Lorraine are the best hosts! Breakfast was excellent,... More

My wife and I recently got a chance to getaway for memorial weekend. Jan and Lorraine were the best host we could have imagined. The room was very clean. The breakfast were spectacular each morning. They were very helpful with a list of current things to do that weekend. They also directed us for dinner when asked for a suggestion.
