The Steamboat House
Guests at The Steamboat House in Galena, Illinois enjoy elegant accommodations in a pre-Civil War mansion.
This beautifully maintained home was built in 1855 by steamboat captain and mining entrepreneur Daniel Harris.
Walk to downtown shops and dining from this luxurious Galena inn.
Enjoy a glass of wine and fine cheeses each night at 5:00, spend time in the garden gazebo, play a game of pool in the billiard room, and savor the 3-course breakfasts.
Five guest suites are available, each featuring a private bath and fireplace. The mansion showcases many antiques and heirloom pieces, but maintains a casual, friendly atmosphere. The meticulous nature of the innkeepers is evident in the spotless rooms and lovely decor. Details such as fresh coffee and tea in the upper main parlor for early morning risers reflect a genuine concern for guest comfort.
The Steamboat House is open year-round, and is centrally heated and air conditioned. With private off-street guest parking at the mansion, the historic town of Galena is only a short walk away.
Nowhere is the scenery more inviting than in Galena, where golf courses, shopping, antiques, hiking and biking are only a few of the leisure activities, and where special events are highlighted during each season of the year. Less than 15 minutes from Galena, Mississippi riverboat cruises, and the Diamond Jo Casino are popular attractions.
Join innkeepers Glen and Char Carlson for a day, a weekend, or a week.
