Not really happy with the breakfast selection. A born leader she is.

We just stayed at this Inn on Memorial Day weekend in 2016. The owners are wonderful people and treated us with the utmost respect. We had such a great experience at the Bernadine's Stillman Inn. We stayed in the penthouse suit and had the best time. The Inn was historic, clean, and beautiful. The breakfast was very good each day. I would recommend this Inn to anyone. Once again, the owners Dave and Bernadine are awesome people. I can't wait to go back and stay there again.

My husband and I had planned a wedding in Galena over a year before we got married. Two months before our wedding date, our venue was bought by a new owner who was almost quadrupling the original agreed upon price. We were not informed of many of the increases until 3 weeks before the wedding. Our once flat-rate wedding venue had become unbelievably expensive, and the new owner met us with nothing but hostility. I began scrambling for other venues in the area with so little time that this seemed like an impossible feat. I called Dave with Bernadine's Stillman Inn, and he immediately made me feel a sense of relief. He felt so bad that we had experienced so much trouble that he spent over an hour on the phone with me going over every aspect of our wedding to make sure everything we wanted could be handled. From that moment onward, I had literally nothing to worry about! I know every bride will love to hear this: Dave and Bernadine will be able to help you create the day of your dreams so you can relax and enjoy every minute of your special day! From simple to extravagant, the Stillman is the most accommodating wedding venue you will find, and you can learn from example their wonderful example from their many years of married bliss! Everything about the wedding was perfect, and the rooms were breathtakingly gorgeous! We are already staring to plan our next visit here!

You don't need a DeLorean to go back in time, you simply need to go to Bernadine's Stillman Inn! If you want to return to the age of civility, look no further! This bed and breakfast is by far the most accommodating place you will ever stay. From the moment you set foot in the Stillman Inn, you will be treated with nothing but love and kindness. I sincerely cannot wait to plan my next visit!

Thank you Timothy! You were equally enjoyable! Love the Delorean line!

Had a fantastic stay at Bernadine's Stillman Inn. Dave, the Innkeeper, was extremely friendly, welcoming, and accommodating in every way to try to make your visit to Galena the best possible including giving a full run down of the town and what there is to do, acting as a concierge. The breakfasts were delicious, including "banana bread extravaganza" and "infused lovecakes". The room was definitely quaint and hospitable. Stillman even adds bonus perks of snacks/desserts in the kitchen and a movie library. It's a quick walk from downtown and right across from Ulysses S Grant's house. Definitely recommend a stay here.

This was our first visit to a Bed & Breakfast and what a wonderful visit it was! Dave is a very gracious host and treats his guests like royalty! The Stillman Inn is so beautiful and very spacious. We stayed in the Penthouse suite and it was gorgeous. Everything you need is there and Dave is very informative about the house, and Galena itself. We highly recommend this B&B. We will be back next year!

Better late than never! We stayed here on the way back from visiting friends in Iowa in the beginning of August 2015. The weather was still beautiful to see all the beauty that Galena offers. We decided to stay at The Stillman Inn and immediately fell in love with its décor, history & owners. We even ended up staying an extra night. Dave treated us as if we were his own family and often times we ended up talking to him for an hour! We can’t wait to book our next trip (coming soon at the end of March 2016). If you are unsure about B&B’s, please give this place a try. If you need anything, Dave will do his very best to accommodate. You will not be disappointed. We definitely want to continue coming back year after year. Dave, we love you!! Julia & Scott

Had an amazing time at Bernadine's Stillman Inn on our "Babymoon"! The house was gorgeous, our room was amazing, and Dave and Bernadine were the nicest hosts. They truly went above and beyond to make our stay memorable! You truly do show up as strangers and leave as friends! Until next time! -Nate and Sabrina DeJong (+Baby DeJong)❤️

My husband and I stayed for one night (mini-moon) before coming home after our wedding. Dave and Bernadine are wonderful people that welcomed us into their fantastic, historical home. They were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The pricing was great too! We had a wonderful time getting to know Dave and the fun couple we had breakfast with. Dave helped make our experience in Galena a great one! We can't wait to go back on our one year anniversary. Thanks, Dave & Bernadine!
