Ahhh, September 2011

Posted by on in Stillman Inn Blog

Like everyone else, we here at Bernadine's Stillman Inn in Galena Illinois, we are wondering where Summer went. We actually like the cooler evenings. Great for having a fire with the guests and making Smores!

Mom was here this week helping me make more Strawberry Jam and Truffles. We have added the molded chocolates to our "Gift Armoire".

Just made Brownies and a Strawberry Pie for this weekends guests. Hope they love it!


Picked what will probably be the last of the tomatoes, green beans and green onions this year.

Also pictured here is some Pasta from Galena's new Pasta Store downtown. They have everything, even Chocolate Pasta.

Mom and I picked up the "Spinach Basil Garlic Fettuccine". It's a beautiful color and apparently all we have to do is add a little bit of oil or pesto to it for a great taste.

I also liked the pasta shaped like sombreros. You cook them and fill them up as an appetizer. Check it out next time you are in Galena!

It's Time For Dessert

Posted by on in Stillman Inn Blog

We have done so many new projects this Spring!

Look...freshly painted benches!

We have a new "Garden Loom" guests can be creative with. Go for a walk, bring back some special finds and weave them in!

A Cloth Cabana will be going up between the Inn and Wedding Chapel! This is going to be great!

And we have three bird feeding stations on the property. Just spotted a Baltimore Oriole the other day! Lots of yellow finches too! And don't forget the cardinals.


The Square Foot Gardens are Fabulous. Well, let's say one of them is doing really well. The second one, my new baby squirrels are chewing all up. I wonder why they are choosing just that box. Anyway, they are cute as the dickens so it's okay. I just keep replanting!

The Guests enjoyed the following last week:

Homemade Strawberry Jam
Homemade Fudge
and Homemade Lavender Infused Pound Cake

Oh my...I'm so glad they ate as much as they did or I would have eaten it all up myself!

Thinking this week will be Angel Food Cake with mixed fruit topping and perhaps some individual Fritattas for breakfast....yum!

Come join us at the Fabulous, Romantic and Historic Stillman Inn located across from General Grant's home and three blocks from Main Street. The gardens are the best they've ever been, downtwon shopping is great and the Weddings here at the Galena Wedding Chapel are divine! Just had an outdoor wedding in the front courtyards. Simply beautiful.

Strawberry Anyone?

Bernadine's Stillman Inn - Best Bed and Breakfast in Galena!


We asked a recent guest how he choose the Stillman Inn. He said he googled "Best Bed and Breakfast in Galena" and we came up! Awesome!

This weekend I canned fresh Strawberries and made a Strawberry pie for everyone to enjoy. It was eaten up immediately. We also had fresh baked apple/cream cheese strudels. They were fabulous.

Guests love our "love cakes" (heart shaped pancakes) so I made these individual strudels in the shape of hearts. Wala..."love strudels".


New addition to our gift shop is "Bernadine's Homemade Strawberry Jam".

Last week we served Chocolate Chip Cupcakes. Yummy.


Come and stay with us and enjoy the deserts. The pie was topped off with a clipping of mint from our new Kitchen Garden. Now that some wild animal has stopped nibbling at things everything is growing nicely! Come check it out! All sorts of fun things to see and smell in our garden. Ask for the tour!


Bring your friends and family and stay at the beautiful, romantic and historic Stillman Inn. Located across from Grant's home. Beautiful walk to main street. "Best Breakfast" and Best Innkeeper" awards.
