Dave and I own and operate "Bernadine's Stillman Inn" in Galena IL since 2000. A prime spot to visit if you enjoy History and the Gentle Arts.
Come On Spring!
Wow - what a long winter. We most enjoyed watching the abundance of Bald Eagles over the river. They were everywhere!
We've uncovered some very interesting architecture at the Inn over the winter. How anyone ever decides to cover that stuff up I'll never know!
We are now looking forward to dusting off the porches and setting up the perfect spot on the porch for relaxing. We have some great events coming up soon. One of our favorites is the Grant Birthday weekend. There's nothing like feeling your back in time when you pass by the encampment along the river or enjoy dinner with one of the General's from the Civil War! This picture is of Bernadine and Mayor Brush last year at the unveiling of the Julia Dent Grant Statue (the one everyone very affectionately refers to as Mrs. Buttersworth).
Our Blogger Special through the end of May is "A Complimentary Bottle of House Wine" with a two night stay and the mention of this Blog.
Hope to be hearing from you soon. Now is the time for a scenic drive - don't you think?
