The Best Bed and Breakfast in Galena IL for 2023

Whatever your reason to visit Galena – whether it’s to do a little shopping or wine tasting, to unwind from the busy holiday season, or to admire the historic architecture and attractions in this small town, there’s only one Bed and Breakfast in Galena IL worth considering; the Jail Hill Inn.

Our Bed and Breakfast in Galena, IL offers an exceedingly romantic space to spend your couple’s getaway. Unlike large, traditional hotels, our Bed and Breakfast in Galena, IL only offers six guest rooms, each consisting of a generous 800 square feet of space that include a private bedroom, sitting areas with kitchenettes and fireplaces, and luxurious bathrooms. You simply can’t find accommodations like this at other Galena Bed and Breakfasts.

Moreover, with only 5 other couples to share the Inn with, it will, at times, feel like you have the entire place to yourself. With customizable Bluetooth sound systems in each room and a variety of high-end amenities throughout, you won’t sacrifice any of the comforts of home, either. If you need some help relaxing into your romantic Galena, IL Getaway, the high-end features of our bathrooms are waiting. They are all different but feature things like oversized jetted tubs, steam showers, custom robes, bath salts, and more.

We’ll start your romantic Galena IL getaway off on the right foot, too, with a bottle of chilled champagne and a custom box of chocolates waiting for you in the suite upon arrival. This is one of the many extra touches you’ll enjoy throughout your stay. Crank up the music in your private suite, turn on the fireplace and settle in for a cozy, romantic evening ahead.

Shortly after your arrival – and every subsequent afternoon of your stay at our Bed and Breakfast in Galena, IL – we’ll bring you a custom tray of our favorite house-made appetizers, homemade cookies, and charcuterie from our friends at Galena River Wine and Cheese, including a bottle of wine or sparkling beverage of your choice. This is our spin-off of a traditional whole-house happy hour, and we’ve found our guests love this extra time to spend in their suites with their loved ones!

In the morning, the pampering continues with a sumptuous multi-course breakfast. We’ll start you off with a delicious cup of locally-roasted coffee or tea and your choice of juice. Shortly after getting settled, we’ll bring you the first course, often consisting of some kind of delicious, seasonal fruit, followed by a second course of freshly baked pastries. Finally, your main course will arrive, a dish that rotates daily and seasonally but which always delights. 

Add a little more indulgence to your stay at our Bed and Breakfast in Galena, IL, and let us help you arrange an in-suite massage.  We work with licensed Galena massage therapists to provide this service, so make sure to give us plenty of advanced notice to do so. It’s these little touches that set our Bed and Breakfast in Galena, IL apart from the competition and truly helps couples enjoy the most romantic Galena IL getaway!
