Welcome to the Lamberson Guest House

Located at the top of Prospect Street in Galena’s scenic Historic District and overlooking the heart of Downtown Galena, Illinois, our beautiful, traditional-style bed and breakfast is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway.

We understand how important it is for us to get out and enjoy life.  Rest assured, we will do all we can during all phases of COVID-19 to make sure your stay with us is as lovely as it has always been:  breakfast by candlelight, cocktails in the courtyard alongside our bubbling fountain and birdsong, but under different socially-distant circumstances. You can trust us to protect your health.

Each of the 4 guestrooms and suites at the Lamberson Guest House have a unique personality that captures the historic charm of Galena. Thoughtfully appointed and decorated, our luxury accommodations feature custom handcrafted king and queen sized beds topped with lavender-rinsed sheets for a sound night’s sleep. Stylish lighting and comfortable furnishings make our bed and breakfast the ideal place for relaxing and enjoying hospitality at its finest.

You decide how active or relaxed your days and nights will be. Indulge in an afternoon nap, or watch a favorite movie while sipping wine in your room. When you do venture out, the Lamberson Guest House is just steps away from the shopping, dining, and unique attractions that make Galena such a wonderful destination.

The Lamberson Guest House is a Galena Traditional-style mansion, originally built in 1870. An Italianate-inspired porch and hand-carved leaded glass doors usher guests into this beautifully maintained piece of history. Intricately carved woodwork and leaded glass details complement the elegant decor throughout the entire home. The heart pine floors and gorgeous hand-carved mantle surrounding the original tiled fireplace and the original gas-lights and leaded windows remind one of the 1800s, and of life as it may have been for the Lamberson family who built this magnificent home.

We hope you choose to stay with us, and look forward to sharing the comforts and hospitality of our historic home with you.
