I tour this home as part of a community college tour of Alton, IL. It is a beautifully maintained home that you should tour if you are in the area. I have seen homes in Charleston, Newport, Natchez and homes of the Fords and Vanderbilts, this home easily stands with them. The best part is the owner's recitation of the history of the home, the Alton area and the Gilded Age.

We stayed for a family wedding. The town is a beautiful escape from city life, and still had a lot to do, i.e. restaurants, shops, etc. Everything was wonderful! Our rooms, the food, the wedding, and customer service. I would love to stay again next time I am in the area.

Thank you so much for your 5 star review. Alton,, IL and the Great Rivers & Routes is a hidden gem that visitors fall in love with. Thank you too for your compliments about our wedding venue, catering, and service. There is simply no better, elegant, or romantic place to be wed than the mansion built as a wedding gift. You, your family, and friends were a most wonderful group. It was a pleasure having you. We hope to see you again soon.

I don't have enough great things to say! I was traveling solo across the country and decided to treat myself to a stay here for a night. Beall Mansion is so unique. The decor will take you back in time. It reminded me of my great aunt or grandma's house in the best possible way. I was lucky enough to meet Sandy, one of the owners, and she was so kind. It made the stay all the more special, and I learned that her and her husband did a majority of the decorating themselves. They were so accommodating and made check-in, breakfast, everything easy. The room I was in was at the top floor and had a claw foot tub, which added to the charm. I felt so relaxed and cozy there, I didn't want to leave. I would highly suggest staying here! It would be perfect for an anniversary or a relaxing getaway.

We spent two nights at the Beall Mansion and had a thoroughly enjoyable visit. The house is elegant and well maintained, and our room was comfortable and clean. The owners, Jim and Sandy, are very personable and helpful. We enjoyed learning about the history of the house and local area from them. They strictly follow COVID protocol, and we felt very safe there.
