“Great Time!”
Reviewed 20 April 2011

We were in Galena for a few days of relaxation and stayed at the Belle Aire. Lorraine and Jane were great - very accommodating, tending to our every need. Room was clean and spacious, couldn't have asked for more. We'll definitely stay there on our next visit to Galena.

I stayed here for a little weekend getaway. The husband and wife who run it certainly love their jobs and it shows. They work very hard. I would prefer for my next visit to stay closer in town (I came a busy weekend and most inns were booked solid). The Breakfast was good but not great. I felt the decor was a little old and dusty.

Overall, the price is right and very fair value for what you get.

Hubby & I decided we needed a getaway and we ended up at the Belle Aire and it was just perfect. Garden View room was beautiful and food outstanding. The owners were as cute as could be and paid attention to every little detail. We highly recommend staying here while visiting Galena.

Hubby and I stayed Saturday through Monday. It was great. The Canopy room was so nice! I loved all the space. The double Whirlpool was an awesome place to relax and to soaked tired feet, after touring through downtown Galena, for hours.

There was a nice fireplace in the room too... but the weekend weather was so great, it was much to warm to use it..

Everything was clean and homey... in fact, so homey i often referred to "going home" when ever we were headed back to The Belle Aire Mansion.

This was only our second B&B stay and we are definately hooked on B&Bs...

Thanks Jan and Lorraine Svec for a wonderful experiance.

  • Liked — The cleanliness and good food... and being on 11 acres away from crowding

The Belle Aire is run by two of the most friendly owners that we've found during our stays at B&B's across the country. They are attentive to the little details that make a visit to their B&B an exceptional experience. We stayed in the "Canopy Suite" and found it to be totally charming; the flavor of the past, with some welcome modern touches.The breakfast was beyond our expectations. The variety of items was exceptional, and everything tasted great!The location of this B&B is a few minutes from the town center - just far enough away to provide a true country setting.We give the Belleaire a top rating, and have recommended it to our friends!
