This was our second time staying and always is a great stay. Will be back next year too. Always clean and comfortable with excellent breakfast. Robert and Douglas provide everything for your stay. We had massages set up for us and dinner reservations. Love that they are always willing to help.

First time we stayed at the Aldrich Guest House, but it will not be our last. Robert and Douglas couldn't have been more accommodating hosts, from the time of booking to after our departure. We were in Galena to meet some friends/family for a pre-Christmas dinner. Our friends were staying at another local hotel, but warmly welcomed to participate in...
