Hellman Guest House Hotel Review

: 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 d├ęcor, 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.
