Fodor's Review

Whether you settle into a grandly appointed suite, freestanding cottage or woodsy log cabin, you'll revel in the romance at this country-style bed and breakfast, just beyond downtown Galena. Going on its 30th year, the Goldmoor appeals to honeymooners, parents seeking a quiet break from the kids, and couples with leisurely days and intimate nights in mind. Its primo picturesque setting on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River is duly complemented with lavish furnishings

in each room or cottage, including two-person whirlpool tubs, heated towel bars and gas fireplaces. For the ultimate views, book the Mississippi Room where you can sip an evening cocktail in the screened-in porch while gazing out onto a magnificent vista of the setting sun over the river.
