St. Patricks Day is right around the corner and that means

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE!

 

and I don't have a clue for what to get for such a wonderful husband!

Actually, his favorite food is weiner schnitzel so I do believe I will be taking him to Fritz & Frites for dinner.  He will love that. He recommended this restaurant to a guest that is staying with us right now and she was so kind to bring him back a schnitzel.  She had a great suggestion.  To keep her weight under control, after she orders her food she puts half of it in a take home box.  Great suggestion!

Dave also enjoys the buffet at Breitbach's.  It's in Balltown Iowa and it is about an hour away. Balltown has the greatest valley view of the Mississippi River.  This road is highly traveled by bikers for it's scenery.

LET THE 2014 WEDDINGS BEGIN!

Posted by on in Stillman Inn Blog

Weddings - 2014 - Can't Wait!

 

There are few things as nice as having a wedding ceremony here at the beautiful and historic Stillman Inn.  You may choose to get married in the Chapel (Galena Wedding Chapel), outside in the garden filled courtyards, or inside Bernadine's Stillman Inn (very small venues and mostly in winter).

 

We offer a full service of wedding coordination and will be there for you from the beginning of your planning to the end of the ceremony and/or reception!

 

Call today for a copy of our wedding planner and our dinner menu.  Ask for Dave at 815 777-0557.  He's a peach to talk to!

 

All meals are made fresh right here in our unique reception venue.  Servers are appropriately appointed and expertly trained in giving you the best in service.

 

Galena IL is the perfect setting for your special day!

 

You may also reserve a room at our Bed and Breakfast.  A place to return for anniversaries year after year.  We just love that!
