This was my first Bed and Breakfast experience, and I was not disappointed! Everything was so well kept and owners attention to detail was spectacular. Breakfast was delicious every morning, our room was cozy and updated, and wine every day at 5 was truly a treat. Having them give us suggestions and help us with reservations was so helpful. I...

The inn keepers are so kind and thoughtful! Their precision to detail makes guests feel well cared for and appreciated! They are also so knowledgeable of the area that you truly get to enjoy every aspect of Galena! And the food is phenomenal!! Staying at Aldrich is a must!

This is a belated review of our wonderful stay back in October. The Aldrich is absolutely beautiful, breakfast and cookies were delicious and Robert and Douglas were gracious and very welcoming hosts. Can't wait to return.

We had the best stay over the 4th of July weekend. Robert &a Douglas are simply the best. They let you be as guests but also are so fun to get to know and are intrigued by YOUR story too. They want you to truly relax while staying with them. Everything from wine time to coupons for free coffee or...

We were greeted with such love from Robert and Douglas. With 3 small kids at home we got away for a 2 day anniversary getaway. The atmosphere of the Aldrich house is so joyous and calm and relaxing. We loved it and plan to come back again. The only place we want to stay is the Aldrich House. Thank you...

We picked this place largely because we saw that they had a cocktail hour. We got so much more. The meals were delicious and house itself was beautiful and full of history. Also they make amazing popcorn.

When we walked up to our room we were pleasantly surprised to see a handwritten birthday card and choc. covered strawberries next to the bed....

Wife and I returned for an anniversary trip to the Aldrich. The room was again immaculate, and Douglas and Robert remain extraordinarily fun and gracious hosts. We had a particularly lovely time, this go-round, meeting and chatting with other guests at the wine hour and at breakfast. And the breakfast! Cannot say enough good things. Often in several courses, the...

This was a lovely guest house with warm and welcoming hosts. Robert and Douglas provided history of the house and Galena, a welcoming glass of wine, a fabulous breakfast and a treat for the road. We would definitely return to both Galena and the Aldrich Guest House.

I would recommend the Aldrich House for any time, any occasion. Douglas and Robert have the most beautiful and comfortable B&B I have ever stayed at. The rooms were great. The gourmet breakfasts were the best. My overall favorite was the 5pm wine and cheese get togethers on the screened in porch. Douglas and Robert were gracious and interesting. I...
