Just to clarify this is a tour of the mansion not a ghost tour as the person at Ramada Inn told us incorrectly, but we just wanted to see the mansion & not do a ghost tour anyway. This is a nice tour of the mansion & it is being preserved to the time period which is nice to see,... More

Visited as part of Amelia's Ghost Tour. Toured the downstairs which is quite lovely. We were told the folks that own the home were hosting a dinner in the downstairs dining rooms later that evening.. I don't know if it is normal but the tables were set for dinner and the chandeliers were lit which gave an interesting vibe to... More

I showed up at the Ryan Mansion tour one afternoon with my mom, sister, and mother in law. We love old houses and were in town so thought we would take a gander. The man who greeted us was dressed up in period clothing and asked us who we were there to see and if we had calling cards, etc.... More

Indeed there be many fine B&Bs available to travelers of the Galena area. Self described as "Galena's Finest....", I excitedly found this description understated. The Ryan Mansion experience is one of pure Victorian Elegance!! Regardless of which room accommodation you choose, elegance, warmth, a peaceful rest and a Delightful Breakfast is Yours!

This was a fall get-away planned as special treat for my mom and sister. We wanted to go somewhere out of the ordinary and make some lasting memories. Ryan Mansion exceeded our expectations without breaking the bank. By choosing to go mid-week, there is a cost reduction. There is no break for single occupancy of a double room, however. The...

I have know idea why Ryan Mansion is not rated in the top 5 b&b's in Galena. It is absolutely beautiful. The mansion is decorated like it may have been when built in the 1800's. Every room is like stepping back in time. The owner even gives tours. And a wonderful home made breakfast is served every morning in the... More

We recently stayed at the lovely and historical Ryan Mansion, (a short drive to downtown Galena), for several nights and enjoyed it immensely. Our host, Bill, was gracious and very informative, providing us with a tour of their beautiful B & B, all while in ‘period mode’. It even included a brief parlour game which was delightful. Our rooms were... More

We stayed at the Ryan mansion for three nights. Our room was very comfortable. The breakfasts where amazing. The house is filled with interesting historic decor. The location is a quick drive to downtown Galena. Be sure and take a tour of the house.

I decided that my mother and I should stay at a B & B while in Galena rather than a hotel, since we were looking for an atmosphere that had more of a "homey" feel. She recently lost her spouse of 59 years, and I wanted to surprise her with something out of the ordinary. The mansion was very impressive... More
