Nestled in the hills of Galena’s Driftless Area is a luxurious bed-and-breakfast that needs to be experienced to be believed.
Offering 18 exclusive suites, the Goldmoor Inn’s elegant, castle-like getaway makes an immediate impression with visitors, setting the tone for the indulgent escape that awaits them during their stay.
Each suite is unique, from rustic log cabins to the cozy and graceful Mississippi Suite, to the Turret Suite, with its very own drawbridge. Each features plush amenities and private balconies to take in the breathtaking views of the Mississippi River valley. Add in details like fresh cookies and flowers that greet visitors in every suite, and a stay at Goldmoor seems like a page from a fairy tale.
Despite being only 6 miles from the town of Galena, the Goldmoor, located at 9001 W. Sand Hill Road, is a world all its own. In the winter months, it can feel like the inside of a snow globe and is a prime location to watch wintering eagles dive for their dinner along the Mississippi River. In warmer times, the sweeping landscape offers stunning vistas for a photograph, a social media post, or even just a quiet memory to tuck away for a rainy day. Bird lovers will want to watch the skies for a variety of birds. Binoculars are available at the front desk for anyone wanting a closer look. At sunset, the sky steals the show with breathtaking displays of color and dying light.
While landscape, decor and views offer a feast for the eyes, the fine-dining experience in the Goldmoor’s dining room provides one of a different kind. Executive chef Brandon Veitch concocts a lavish creation with each dish, elevating the food he serves with each meal. An upscale, yet cozy dining experience, Goldmoor Inn’s menu is not just for the stomach, but also for the soul.
Whatever the occasion, a stay at the Goldmoor Inn is a five-star experience. ❚
