My husband surprised me at Christmas with a week-end get away in Galena for this month. I didn't know where he was taking me, so arriving at the Inn was exciting - such a beautiful place! When we walked through the front door I was awed by the 3 story oval staircase. Dave said it is called a "key hole" stairway. With greenery and lights all the way up it is so impressive. Dave said he hoped Bernadine would elect to leave the lights up year round, and we agree. We regret we only got to say hi to Bernadine, but we did have opportunity to visit at length with Dave and their son. Delightful. Our room was wonderful, we loved the fireplace. Dave gave us lots of information about restaurants so we had a great supper. Otto's for a drink and good meal. Also ate at 111 Main. Great scratch food, much of it local. We met 3 other couples staying the weekend at Stillman and we all had a fun time at breakfast. We were all ages, married 3 years, 25 years, 33 years and 48 years! The Stillman is a terrific place to stay, with caring, involved hosts and every amenity you need plus a few you didn't know you needed : ). We will definitely be back!
