Getaway

This was our third stay this year. Jim & Sandy & staff are wonderful. Better than 5 star hotel. If you want to be pampered, this is the place to stay.

Winter Luxury at the Beall Mansion

A tall, dark, and elegant gentleman in white tie and tails opened the door, and said “Welcome to the Beall Mansion.” His smile and the ambience were so warm, we immediately shook off our winter blues and chill. Once inside, everywhere we gazed were wonderful things: large statuary, fully-restored hearths, staircases, wood floors, pocket doors, tapestries, Persian carpets, a pianoforte, and an endless collection of art and finery. We were transported back to 19th century opulence by walking through this door in Alton, Illinois. Scintillating fireside conversation and brandy followed before we were shown to our room. The master’s chamber featured a king-sized bed, sofa, oriental carpets, large fireplace, French mirror, five windows, an elephant desk, and even though all the modern conveniences were present, they were tastefully hidden from view in delightful antique furnishings. The bathroom’s Italian marble made each step cool and delightful to the feet as we made our way to the huge whirlpool tub over which an ethereal goddess presides. There was also a walk-in shower, sink, and every imaginable toiletry available, along with two elegant bathrobes in our specific sizes for us to use then take home. Alton was an Epicurean’s dream, with dinners at Bossanova and Gentelin’s and gourmet breakfasts in bed at the Beall Mansion. We enjoyed visits to the Mississippi River yacht club, parks, and museum, but our time at the Beall Mansion was heavenly. On our last night experienced therapists gave us couple’s massage in our suite, using aroma therapy oils and body treatments from the East. What relaxation! Then we retired to the whirlpool tub for a soak, and discovered a bottle of lavender crystals especially for us. The fire and bed were so inviting, and we enjoyed a romantic night together any Honeymoon couple would envy. An escape to the Beall Mansion will put you in another world, another time, and if you visit in winter, even in another season.

A Homey Home Away From Home

It's apparent that Jim and Sandy really go out of their way to make you feel at home in this wonderfully conserved Victorian style mansion. From the time they spend in decorating, furnishing and up keeping the place to the time they are willing to spend chatting with you about anything from the history of the house to the history of the town, it is evident that the Beall Mansion is not just a business for them, but more importantly, a passion. This transcends in every detail of the house. We had a really good time there and look forward to staying at the Beall again. Something to note, I'm a budget traveler. We stayed in the "Servents Quarters" The pricing for this room is comparable to hotel rates and in some cases was cheaper. Definitely well worht the money.

Most Wonderful!!!

This was the best b&b ever. It was our honeymoon and it was most memorable thanks to Jim and Sandy. This has been almost 4 years ago, but I still can't wait to go back sometime They had the best food, the most beautiful room and the best hospitality. You'll not regret booking this one. A little pricey, but for a special occasion it is unbeatable!!!
