Wonderful first B&B experience! The innkeepers, Kathy and Phill were kind and hospitable. They even took care to prepare a gluten free breakfast for my husband, which is very much appreciated. Our room was clean, cozy, and met all of our expectations. We hope to make it back again during the warmer months!

Out of the way and away from it all in the woods; fortunately, we had beautiful sunny days while we were there; but, it would be a bit difficult to get to in adverse weather. Main photo is a bit misleading, because it's of the owner's home and not the lodge next door that contains the rooms, although it is...

The hosts were amazing. Friendly and accommodating. Atmosphere was relaxing. Loved sharing the outdoor fire pit with other couples and sharing information of the many things there is to do in the area with each other. We will definitely be back.

The hosts were fantastic and the home made breakfast every morning was much great. It is about 15-20 minutes outside of town on a quiet gravel road. My wife and I saw several deer and wild turkeys around. Definitely worth the stay.

This B&B was so peaceful, welcoming and relaxing. Yummy breakfast. Comfortable. Beautiful scenery. Very accommodating hosts. We enjoyed the casual privacy and the walk in the fall leaves. Also close to great restaurants but tucked away on the bluff for that away from it all feeling.

This was the first B&B my husband and I ever stayed at. Now it's still our favorite after 3+ years of staying lots of places. Kathy & Phill are very accommodating, friendly and the breakfasts are outstanding! They're always ready with a recommendation or directions, too! I'd highly recommend a weekend stay here!

My husband and I were looking for a place for a long weekend for a Fall getaway for our anniversary. We were hoping for Eagle Ridge in the Galena area because it is so beautiful there.

Celebrated my birthday here. I liked the peaceful location. The rooms were a bit outdated (colored hot tubs remind me of the 80's) but otherwise very homey. Our hosts were sure to introduce everyone to each other-- very gracious people. They prepared wonderful strawberry covered chocolates for us ( i have a great husband) and we thoroughly enjoyed them!
