Fall is one of the most beautiful times in Galena and we are just waiting for the leaves to change and for things to cool down! Perfect time to fall in love with that significant other all over again! Or come by yourself and fall in love with Fall and Galena.

It was a busy summer here at the Stillman Inn. With all the heavy rains we had to re-design some of our garden walls. Sorry to guests who had to witness this mess! But the gardens are back up and running. Can't wait to see how the new plantings look next summer! We're shooting for bigger and better.

Holidays - just around the corner. The only thing better than Fall in Galena is winter. To see the hills covered in white is just breathtaking. The downtown sparkles with excitement when it is draped in snow. Don't worry about driving, they keep Route 20 nice and clean! So sneak away and come join us and receive our lowest rates of the year!

Don't forget to plan for the Spring Daffodil festival. Lats year, the first year, was one weekend oo late as most of the daffodils were already spent. But the City keeps adding more and more daffodils and the event will keep growing and turn into a real car stopper!

Blog Special: November 2010 through February 2011 (not including New Years and Holidays). Stay 3 nights and get the third night at 20% off and a compimentary bottle of house Chardonnay or Merlot! Just mention you saw this Blog!

New Year- New Beginnings 2010!

Posted by on in Stillman Inn Blog

Welcome 2010! So many things have happend already in the last several months! We welcomed to the world Cara Isabella Anderson on Decemeber, 17 2009. 7 pounds 6 oz, what a great Christmas gift for the whole family! They are doing great as parents and we love our little sweet pea so! Crying is not an issue for this little one, and she makes us all so happy. Dave and I are so proud to be grand-parents and are very proud of Jessy and Phil for being such great parents. Christmas at Crossroads was special, as we all sang and gave praise to the new born king and our new grandchild. It was very special because now we have Jessy's family to be with during the holidays, all the girls are having fun holding Cara.

Dave and I just celebrated our 22 years together, with all the joy going around this holiday we grow stronger as one. Snow is still falling and galena looks so beautiful during these seasons, it is a perfect picture type of town! Bonus is, we live here!

This blogger special:
stay 2 midweek nights
get the 3rd night free
code word: "sweet pea"

Summer 2009

Posted by on in Stillman Inn Blog

Everything is growing like crazy out here. I must admit, last years gardens here at the inn were not at their best. I suffered a neck injury which kept me down for about 6 months. BUT I AM BACK and the gardens are lovlier than they have ever been. We have some huge red geraniums in the back, a variety of annuals and new perennials up front and the pond on the side of the mansion is just too cute!

So, come, pull up a lawn chair, open that bottle of wine and enjoy the flowers!

Bloggers Special: Free bottle of house wine with your two night midweek stay! Don't forget to mention it when you make your reservation.

P.S. Most of the weekends in October require a three night stay and they are filling up so think "FALL"!
