We were blown away by the beauty of the B&B but felt like family during our stay with Jim & Sandy! Wonderful, wonderful home but better yet was the friendship and warmth we felt with Sandy & Jim. A truly extraordinary B&B with amazing creature comforts. You will love your time with the owners; amazing people and over-the-top surroundings. Thanks... More

My husband and I thought this was an amazingly beautiful bed and breakfast. The home is not only beautiful but very relaxing. The owners are a wonderful couple who will go above and beyond to make your stay perfect.

I have never been so pampered or felt so comfortable at a bed and breakfast like Beall Mansion. To be greeted with a glass of champagne was just the start of a great weekend. I have nothing bad to say about this place. Breakfast in bed was something to talk about for weeks. The staff was attentive and very polite.... More

Jim and Sandy have created a wonderful bed and breakfast location in a beautiful, historic area of Alton, IL. The atmosphere is relaxing, charming and very romantic and was prefect for a nice little getaway for my husband and I. It's the little touches like the 24/7 free chocolate buffet, the chocolates on the pillow every day, the homemade lavender... More

We stayed in the Veranda Room at the Beall Mansion for our fifth wedding anniversary. We had an amazing weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
