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.

Here are just some of the things my fiancé and I loved most about the Stillman Inn: Our room was clean, comfortable and wonderfully-updated. We stayed in the Grand Romance Room, which had an amazing whirlpool jacuzzi tub and a cozy fireplace and if you never left the room, you would have a great time in and of itself. The breakfasts were fantastic. They had a cook in on the weekend but every morning there were a couple of choices to chose from and everything was delicious and made with care. We left with big smiles on our faces every morning. The B&B itself is beautiful with a ton of history and charm. The owners know the history quite well and will share if you are interested. They also know the area and have all sorts of recommendations for things to do, stores to visit and restaurants to eat at. They could not be any more accommodating! We loved that the Inn was within walking distance to town. The scenery around the inn is beautiful and you feel like you are transported to a different time. Perfect location. But overall, the main reason we will return is because of Dave, the owner. Kind, warm, funny and a pleasure to talk to. He made our stay extremely comfortable and we felt like we were home. We ended up making friends with a couple of the other visitors and it is all because Dave made everyone feel like we had known each other for years! We highly recommend staying at the Stillman Inn if you are traveling to Galena. We will be back!

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 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!

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
