Dave and I own and operate "Bernadine's Stillman Inn" in Galena IL since 2000. A prime spot to visit if you enjoy History and the Gentle Arts.
We have done so many new projects this Spring!
Look...freshly painted benches!
We have a new "Garden Loom" guests can be creative with. Go for a walk, bring back some special finds and weave them in!
A Cloth Cabana will be going up between the Inn and Wedding Chapel! This is going to be great!
And we have three bird feeding stations on the property. Just spotted a Baltimore Oriole the other day! Lots of yellow finches too! And don't forget the cardinals.
The Square Foot Gardens are Fabulous. Well, let's say one of them is doing really well. The second one, my new baby squirrels are chewing all up. I wonder why they are choosing just that box. Anyway, they are cute as the dickens so it's okay. I just keep replanting!
The Guests enjoyed the following last week:
Homemade Strawberry Jam
and Homemade Lavender Infused Pound Cake
Oh my...I'm so glad they ate as much as they did or I would have eaten it all up myself!
Thinking this week will be Angel Food Cake with mixed fruit topping and perhaps some individual Fritattas for breakfast....yum!
Come join us at the Fabulous, Romantic and Historic Stillman Inn located across from General Grant's home and three blocks from Main Street. The gardens are the best they've ever been, downtwon shopping is great and the Weddings here at the Galena Wedding Chapel are divine! Just had an outdoor wedding in the front courtyards. Simply beautiful.
