A Bed and Breakfast stay is very different from a typical lodging stay. When you make a reservation with us we are committing to you a specific room on specific dates and will not rent that room to anyone else. The Lamberson Guest House is an exclusive property where every guest reservation is both important and special to us. If your travel plans change and you must cancel your reservation, please call us at least 10 (ten) days prior to your arrival date to cancel your reservation less your $50 deposit.
In the unlikely event that you must cancel within the 10 (ten) day cancellation period, shorten your stay or check out early, you will still be charged for your entire reservation. If we can re-book your rooms, a full or partial refund will be made.
Rates/policies are subject to change and vary during high impact periods and for special requests. A 30 day cancellation notice is required on multiple room bookings, whole house bookings, and for some holidays and special events.
Old Man Winter Guarantee:
Winter is a wonderful time to visit Galena. Whether you’re looking to relax and unwind, or to enjoy some of the exciting winter sports offered all over Galena, book your stay with us and know that if a winter storm warning is issued that prevents you from traveling, there will be no penalty for last-minute cancellations, up to and including the day of your arrival.
Accepted forms of payment include credit and debit cards, and Lamberson Guest House gift certificates.
The balance of your stay will be charged to the card used to reserve your room on the morning of the day you are due to check in. If you would like to use another form of payment, please let us know before your arrival date.
A $50 non-refundable deposit and the full cost of all retail items, will be collected at the time of booking.
Lamberson Guest House has a two-night minimum on weekends. Single night reservations may be considered within three days of arrival and must be made by phone.
Check in and Check Out:
Our standard check-in time is 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Any arrivals after 7:00 pm will be subject to an additional $25 late check-in fee. Because we wake in the wee hours of the morning, we are unable to accommodate any check-ins after 9:00 pm.
Checking in prior to 3 p.m. is not available due to housekeeping schedules.
Check-out time is 11:00 AM. A late check out time is not available due to housekeeping schedules.
We are unable to accommodate pets at this time.
Under Illinois law, smoking is not allowed in our home or within 15 feet of doors and windows. We do have an outdoor smoking area for those who would like to enjoy a cigarette, pipe, or cigar.
Well-behaved children over the age of 15 are welcome in our inn. However, there is a 2-person occupancy for all rooms except for the Elizabeth Suite, which has a sofa-bed. There is a $50 per-day additional charge for a third person staying in the Elizabeth Suite.
