My husband and I had such a great time staying here, Dave and Bernadine are the kindest, funniest, and most hospitable people we have ever met & they put together a GREAT breakfast! They made our honeymoon experience amazing and we will definitely be back for future anniversary celebrations ! I highly recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to Galena! ❤️

My wife and I had made our first trip to Galena. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast and were a little unsure about how it would go. Dave was awesome. He welcomed us and treated us just like a member of his family. He answered all of our questions and concerns, kept everyone entertained at breakfast and always had a kind word for everyone. He is passionate about what he does. It shows in the attention to detail at the inn. From the grounds to the rooms, everything is always clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay at the Stillman Inn on future trips to Galena. Thanks Dave and Bernadine for everything

Wonderful stay the host Dave Anderson was amazing we even joked and talked about our last names being the same sadly not related. All in all wonderful stay me and my wife had. Rooms were wonderful for being over 100 years old they did a wonderful job we will be back.

I have been to Galena once before, and I saw the Stillman Inn when I went to visit Grant’s House, which is right across the street. The Stillman Inn is quite beautiful and overlooks the town below. I was excited to stay here because of its outer beauty and view to town across the river. We found the inn to be as beautiful inside as out. The inn is in an old building, which shows, but it is quite well maintained and decorated. The rooms have modern conveniences (flat screen TV’s, refrigerator, comfortable beds, and up to date bathrooms) but maintain the character of the house. Dave, who works with Bernadine, does most of the interacting with guests. He is very polite and welcomes you as a friend. The quality of your stay genuinely matters to him, and during our check in, he sat down with us and another couple and reviewed a map of town, and discussed the quality of various attractions and eateries. He answered our questions openly and frankly, and definitely contributed to the quality of our long weekend in Galena.

Our 2-day stay at the gorgeous Bernadine's Stillman Inn was delightful. Dave and Bernadine are the perfect innkeepers. In our 20-year experience with B&B's all over the country, we have never experienced a made-to-order breakfast. It was not only fresh and delicious but Dave provided 5-star service during the meals. I appreciated the hand-made map that Dave drew highlighting all the great things to do and see in the Galena area. They are the most personable innkeepers we have ever experienced (40+ B&B's)

My husband and I visited Bernadine's Stillman Inn this past weekend and had a wonderful time! The inn is very well maintained, clean, and Bernadine and Dave are so friendly! Breakfast was delicious, and so filling! The rooms are absolutely stunning, the beds are very comfortable, and the water pressure is high and the water hot :) We loved our stay and would stay there again in a heartbeat! If you want a nice quiet getaway, Bernadine's Stillman Inn is the place to go!

I had originally booked a nearby hotel for a Galena trip before I realized that this would be an ideal time to propose to my girlfriend. I looked around at lodging that would be more romantic than a hotel and discovered a beautiful mid-19th-century mansion that was the epitome of romance for northern Illinois in winter (it even snowed gently throughout the day of my proposal). So, Stillman Inn on several categories: 1) Beauty - Majestic 1850's mansion 2) Romance - The Honeymoon sweet had 2 gas fireplaces and a four-poster bed and all the history we could ever desire 3) Service - Dave, the owner, worked closely with me on setting up my proposal night, from champagne to rose petals and everything in between. Breakfast was similarly awesome. Finally, he even helped us take pictures the day after to commemorate our moment. 4) Location..even in heavy snow, it's a 3 minute walk to the US Grant mansion. It's a 2 minute drive from everything in awesome, historical downtown Galena, and if it wasn't a snowstorm, would be a 10 minute walk.
