2014 Year In Review Here At Bernadine’s Stillman Inn

Becca, Phil, Bernadine, Dave, Miss Lili and Cupcakes!

We’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who has stayed with us or who are planning to stay with us soon.  2014 has been a blast and we so much appreciate all of your love and support.

Grandkids are getting older, we’re adding an 8th room on the third floor of the Stillman, and Dave has been super busy keeping all the dead bushes spray painted green.  They actually don’t look that bad!


We’ve had some of the most beautiful weddings here this year and the weather for outdoor weddings was perfect!  The gardens were showing the fruit from having such a humid and moist Spring!

Packages Oreos

We have a new and fabulous website this year with a lot of new packages for you to choose from.  Hope you enjoy!

Christmas Bkfst

Many fun breakfasts shared with guests!  Yes, we are open 365 days a year and probably serve 357 of those days!  There is nothing else we’d rather do.  We’ve made so many new friends and have enjoyed so many good stories with you all!

The Bond

And we can’t forget our newest addition to the family – Drago!  We brought him home from a shelter in June.  He is two years old and just the most perfect dog we could ever imagine being blessed with.  Some of you have enjoyed watching him run around the lower courtyard and others have actually taken him on walks!  What fun!  Welcome Drago!


We’ve enjoyed helping our guests explore Galena and all the great options available.  Iowa Wine Tours was a big hit with the guests this year!

Christmas 2014 2

And the Holidays!  What fun!  We had more guests visiting over Thanksgiving and Christmas than ever before and they were such a pleasure.  How great it is to be able to share this beautiful and decorated mansion with you all!

Cara Angel SnowAnd in our spare time – what better way than to spend it with the grandkids?  This is the only snow we’ve had to date this winter.  Glad she got to have fun in it.

Cara Advent

Many of you are interested in my Craft Room and what I’m whipping up now.  Well this year we have a new advent calendar for the grandkids to enjoy…and they certainly have been enjoying it.  Mom and I made a second one for her place too!

Becca & Lili

What’s up for 2015?  Well, we will finish “The Third Floor Pent House” room and ask our daughter if she will begin offering facials here at the Stillman Inn.  She is attending school now and I had the privilege of getting a facial.  Oh My Word – it was fabulous.  She is also a makeup artist and Dave is a photographer  – so there you go.  Come, be pampered, get all dolled up and have a photo shoot!

So, from our home to yours

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hope to see you in 2015!
