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

Warm, Welcoming and Wonderful!
Thank you for the incredible hospitality and all that you did to make our visit wonderful. Resa and Chris were incredible hosts and ensured that our stay was warm and welcoming. The home was beautiful with much historic charm and the rooms were exceptionally comfortable, clean and well appointed with a spacious modern bathroom. The views from our room overlooking downtown was breathtaking. Breakfast was a full 3-course meal that was incredibly fresh with an abundance of great food. Your recommendations of things to do in the Galena area was extremely helpful. We will definitely be back to stay at Lamberson Guest House!

About Lamberson
Guest House

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.
