We highly recommend The Steamboat House! We stayed at here on our first trip to Galena and we’re so impressed. We hadn’t ever stayed at a Bed & Breakfast so weren’t really sure what to expect but couldn’t have had a better experience. Everything was very clean and Covid friendly! Carol is so kind and welcoming. The home is beautiful and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. The wine at 5 PM was a lovely time to explore the beautiful house. You can see the amount of care Carol puts into everything with the seasonal decorations and the pristine condition of the house. We stayed in Viola and really appreciated the fireplace in our room and morning coffee right outside the door! We will definitely be back!
