My husband and I have been repeat guests of the Goldmoor Inn since New Year's Eve 2003! It's a great place to go for a quick two or three night getaway. We can completely unwind and relax while there. We always feel refreshed after a visit to the Goldmoor Inn. This time, upon check-in, I was handed an envelope that contained earrings I'd left behind during a previous stay. I had no idea they kept the earrings for me amd I searched everywhere for them. I was so happy because the earrings have sentimental meaning for me. It was so wonderful that the staff saved them for me! A second surprise was a bottle of chilled champagne left in our cottage as a thank you for being loyal repeat guests. The Inn Keepers and the entire staff are very kind. We'll always return to the Goldmoor Inn for a nice, private getaway.

Property's Favourite Review
This property is wonderful and a must-visit for anyone in Illinois. We had the best stay, and the staff was polite and friendly. The food was delicious and the ambiance was spectacular. Several reviews say it's very romantic- and yes, it is, but this is also a great spot for families or friends to come visit. There is something for everyone here.

We had a wonderful time and will be back again! We stayed in one of the cabins which was very clean and charming. The view of the Mississippi River at dinner, during sunset was beautiful, and the food was superb. We felt very welcomed and are looking forward to a return trip.

Spent the weekend at this beautiful B&B. Tranquil setting with great views. The room was very clean and comfortable. It was so quiet I wouldn't have even known anyone else was staying at the B&B. We had a delicious breakfast delivered to our room each morning. The staff was super welcoming and helpful. The highlight for me was our dinner in the restaurant. We had 2 friends join us and were seated in a private dining room with amazing views of the sunset. We ordered 4 different entrees and they were all incredible. I had the beef wellington and it was one of the best meals I've had. Slobo was an excellent host and checked in on us several times. This is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. I would take a trip to Galena again just to stay here.
