This is a belated review of our wonderful stay back in October. The Aldrich is absolutely beautiful, breakfast and cookies were delicious and Robert and Douglas were gracious and very welcoming hosts. Can't wait to return.

We picked this place largely because we saw that they had a cocktail hour. We got so much more. The meals were delicious and house itself was beautiful and full of history. Also they make amazing popcorn.

This was a lovely guest house with warm and welcoming hosts. Robert and Douglas provided history of the house and Galena, a welcoming glass of wine, a fabulous breakfast and a treat for the road. We would definitely return to both Galena and the Aldrich Guest House.
