“Exceptional intimate wedding weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

My husband and I got married at the Goldmoor Inn on February 18th. The accommodations were outstanding! The owners and staff made the entire weekend come together exactly how we had envisioned. They provided a truly stress free experience and went above and beyond which gave us the opportunity to enjoy every moment. The fireplace in the lodge provided the perfect backdrop for our small intimate wedding and the great room was perfect for our reception. The spaces were immaculate and the food was consistently amazing. Whether it be the included breakfast or our reception dinner, which included a personalized menu with gourmet selections, a beautiful coffee and hot chocolate bar and an oh so yummy ice cream sundae bar. Not to mention our wedding cake was made and designed on site. We heard over and over from our guests that it was the best wedding cake they ever had; and we couldn't agree more! We stayed in the beautiful Arthur suite and two days was not enough. The room was spacious, luxurious and had everything you could want. All of our guests had great experiences and we can't speak highly enough about the site and staff! We would recommend the Goldmoor to anyone without hesitation and we can't wait to go back!

My wife and I stayed in the Turret Room. This room gave us a 270 degree view of the surrounding area and I feel was probably the best room they have. It had two floors with a very nice bedroom set up. The 2 person hot tub holds 2 people easily and with an easy view of the TV at the same time. The bed was big and very comfortable. The dining area and small kitchen were located on the 1st floor and was perfect for the morning breakfeast that was included and hand delivered to the our table in the room. There was gas opperated fire places on both floors and all the lights dim which creates a very romantic mood. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I can honeslty say they were one of the most friendly staff we have encountered and that includes owners, front decks, restraurant people, massage people and the lady who delivered the breakfeast. My wife loved the robes that were provided in the rooms. This place is located off the beaten path, but we like it that way as it created space between the busy town of Gelena. We did dine at the hotel the 1st night and had a wonderful meal. We also took part in the hot stone massage which was very relaxing. There is a lot to do in the area and we ran out of time and had to skip some stuff. The price for the place and the dining is on the higher end, but it was well worth it. I only wished it was not so cold and windy so that we could have walked around the property. This place is what I picture a BandB to be. We will be coming back to the Goldmoor.

Room Tip: Make sure to go on Goldmoor's website to look at the rooms.

My husband and I were so happy to return to the Goldmoor in Galena this last weekend. We stayed in the English Cottage and loved the privacy and luxury of the cottage. We are always so impressed with the food and the overall attention to detail. Tom and Patricia are not only excellent innkeepers but wonderful people as well. We always enjoy their company and love feeling like we are also apart of the Goldmoor family. We would whole heartily recommend the Goldmoor Inn to anyone.

Room Tip: we enjoy the privacy of the cottages

The quality of rooms and service at the Goldmoor Inn are exquisite. We stayed for a couple nights in the Chef's Suite, and everything was fantastic. Tom, Patricia, and the rest of the staff are kind and approachable; everyone did a wonderful job making us feel at home. Right after we checked in, we wandered around the grounds to explore, and Tom gave us a tour of the suites that had not yet been checked in. All the rooms are spacious and gorgeous. The decor is elegant and not over-the-top. Tom grew up in the are and provided some good information of the caves and notable features in the area, as well as some Galena restaurant recommendations. Chestnut Mountain is just a mile down the road, and downtown Galena is about 5 miles away. For anything that we wanted that was not immediately in the room, the staff was very accommodating. (e.g. there was coffee and hot chocolate, but no tea in the room, but a quick request to the front desk remedied that. +10 for Mighty Leaf brand teas.)

Perfect for a romantic getaway or a family reunion. A wonderful balance of getting away and delightful divertissement.

Room Tip: Chef's Suite has an entrance from the kitchen, has a whirlpool bath that overlooks the Mississip...

My wife & I stayed in the Gwenivere Suiteon a Fri-Sat night. All the staff was great, very pleasant. The suite was awesome, very clean with all the amenities we would need. Our meals were very tasty, the desserts fantastic. On the night we arrived, we both had the hot stone massage. This is a must for kicking off a stay here. The only thing is that while the water pressure was adequate, it could have been higher.

Room Tip: Save a few bucks with the Gwenivere Suite in the Winter time, when the view doesn't really matte...
