Derinda B&B was absolutely "what the doctor ordered."...better than a hotel. Food was great, accommodations outstanding. We'll be going back!
our stay was perfect. Sandy truly thinks of every detail! Stocked fireplace, s’mores fixings, coffee and tea and bathrobes in the closet.
But the most amazing part of your stay is the breakfasts she provides. Amazing and the table was set to perfection.
The bedding is super comfortable as well!
We highly reccomend a stay here!
What a lovely home we spent time in for a small family holiday gathering for two days. The furniture was comfortable, clean and elegant. The dishes, furniture and decor had an old world English/Scottish/Irish feel. We enjoyed lighting a fire while it snowed outside. The house had tasteful Christmas decorations up for the season. Our hostess, Sandra, had the fireplace set up for us and also provided additional logs, a starter kit as well as s’mores supplies. It was great being able to relax and watch movies on the smart t.v. In the living room and make cocoa in the kitchen.
Our stay felt very thoughtful. We had access to our own full kitchen and the privacy of our own floor but our hosts were accessible for any additional needs on another floor. Sandra made us two delicious breakfasts. We especially loved the crepes. There are actually three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the guest level. The beds had a nice array of blankets and we had control of the thermostat. The house seemed well-insulated because we stayed comfortable and warm. The parking could not be better-they have a circular drive and let you park right in front for easy loading and unloading.
The location is 15-20 minutes outside of Galena.
Great place to stay for couples or family! Sandra is a great chef so have her cook you dinner as well...well worth it! We will be back!
Wonderfully relaxing and comfortable home in which to stay. Breakfasts were excellent. Hope to return.
The location was peaceful, with a beautiful deck overlooking a well-tended back yard. The breakfasts were top notch. I recommend getting the optional supper provided as well; she really is an excellent cook! The hostess was very helpful, orienting us to the surrounding area. The drive from the bed and breakfast to Galena was scenic and took about 15 minutes. It was just the two of us this time, but we will bring some friends next time.
Our stay at the Derinda House Bed and Breakfast was incredible. We were only 12 miles from Old Town Galena that we visited during the days while site seeing as well. The Trolly ride was very informative as we toured the town. While back at the B&B we enjoyed relaxing out on the deck as it was inviting with a patio table and furniture so we could take in all the amazing views and listen to the frogs and all the other nature as well. Sandra also equipped us with wood for a fire and the ingredients for s'mores as well. Sandra was a great host and her breakfasts were amazing!
