Hellman Guest House
Formal elegance creates a warm and inviting atmosphere.
A beautiful leaded-glass door welcomes guests into the foyer of this classic, Queen Anne-style house. It was constructed in 1895 and once served as the home of a local congressman. Today, guests enjoy its great views of the city. In fact, it feels as if they're an integral part of the décor, available as they are from the parlor, library, patio and gardens. Lovers of antiques and dolls will enjoy the collections displayed throughout. Natural light pours through stained-glass windows, enriching the deep colors that adorn the interiors. The yard has been built into a hillside, isolating the property from its neighbors and creating a wonderful feeling of privacy. The inn is a short walk from Main Street. Galena is a popular destination for art and crafts shoppers. Guests will find numerous Ulysses S. Grant sites in the area, as well as some of the best downhill skiing in the state.
