More than just a B&B, Derinda House is an entire apartment with the owners living downstairs. Very spacious - Loved having actual living room, dining area, kitchen, and deck. Plus third bedroom has a sleeper-sofa, and living room sofa could be used as well - so would be perfect for a group getaway.
Sandra made an excellent breakfast both mornings we were there.
Quiet location is outside the tiny town of Elizabeth and an easy drive to Galena.
Would definitely stay again if in the area.
Derinda B&B was absolutely "what the doctor ordered."...better than a hotel. Food was great, accommodations outstanding. We'll be going back!
our stay was perfect. Sandy truly thinks of every detail! Stocked fireplace, s’mores fixings, coffee and tea and bathrobes in the closet.
But the most amazing part of your stay is the breakfasts she provides. Amazing and the table was set to perfection.
The bedding is super comfortable as well!
We highly reccomend a stay here!
What a lovely home we spent time in for a small family holiday gathering for two days. The furniture was comfortable, clean and elegant. The dishes, furniture and decor had an old world English/Scottish/Irish feel. We enjoyed lighting a fire while it snowed outside. The house had tasteful Christmas decorations up for the season. Our hostess, Sandra, had the fireplace set up for us and also provided additional logs, a starter kit as well as s’mores supplies. It was great being able to relax and watch movies on the smart t.v. In the living room and make cocoa in the kitchen.
Our stay felt very thoughtful. We had access to our own full kitchen and the privacy of our own floor but our hosts were accessible for any additional needs on another floor. Sandra made us two delicious breakfasts. We especially loved the crepes. There are actually three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the guest level. The beds had a nice array of blankets and we had control of the thermostat. The house seemed well-insulated because we stayed comfortable and warm. The parking could not be better-they have a circular drive and let you park right in front for easy loading and unloading.
The location is 15-20 minutes outside of Galena.
