Jan & Lorraine --

This weekend was a birthday gift for
me from a dear friend -- Kimberly.
She researched B & B's and thought
yours sounded delightful, and you
did not let us down. We had a
great "girls weekend getaway" and
your home made it all the more special
-- I will definitely be back and I will
be sure to recommend -- your hospitality
was generous and genuine

Thanks for a great time!
Judi & Kimberley

--P.S. - to the next guests: here is
a dollar - please sign, date, and re-hide
the dollar
Clue: I have often found the key to
keeping secrets is to keep them
under your hat.

We had a wonderful time here, and
Lorraine and Jan made us feel
so comfortable. This was a great
getaway from a stressful month.
The room was very romantic
and relaxing.

Thank you,

Dear Jan & Lorraine,

We had a absolutely wonderful stay
here at the Belle Aire Mansion. It was both of
our first times at a B & B and now it definitely
won't be the last, thanks to you two. Our
suite was more than I could have imagined
it to be and your hospitality made the most
of everything. I especially enjoyed the
cookies! I am amazed at what you two do
to keep up such a great running business,
and once again all I can say is thank you
for giving us the most relaxing vacation/
getaway we have ever been on!

Jan and
Thank you so much for all of your kindness
and for making us feel so at home. We had
such an amazing time talking with you and
staying in your beautiful home! You are so
generous and we will definitely recomment you
to all of our family and friends. You have
made our Galena stay such a wonderful
memory that we will always remember.

delicious banana pancakes, cookies, and
breakfast time laughs!!


To everyone staying at Belle Aire & Lorraine & Jan.
This is probably our 10th stay here. We
have started as B & B guests and now have
become close friends with Lorraine & Jan.
Our stays have become "Coming Home" and
we are now property owners in the Galena
Territory and look forward to permanent
residence here. Both Lorraine & Jan have made
us feel so at home & welcome that we
keep coming back. We now look foward
to having them to our home to extend the
warm hospitality they have always shown
us. We have such wonderful memories
of our time here and hope that everyone
that stays here feels the true warmth &
caring that Jan & Lorraine extend to
all their guests. Lorraine always says
as you walk in the door. "Hi--Welcome
Home!" Enjoy every minute you can
share here!

Dear Jan and Lorraine,

Thank you so much for your hospitality! We
found Galena to be everything we hoped for and
more; thank you for your part in that. Upon your
suggestions we visited both Log Cabin &
Vinny Vanucchi's "Little Italy." They were both very
tasty, and we found ourselves wanting to take
a little home with us, but thought you might
want a little for yourselves. Hope you enjoy it!
The suite was amazing and we will always look
back at this New Year with fond memorys. Thank
you so much and we hope you have a
Wonderful New Year.

Lauren and Marty
