The perfect mix of old and new in this 1857 Great House that brought the railroad and higher education to Galesburg. This spacious INNKEEPER'S ROOM has a queen size bed, full bath, TV, mini frig, desk, continental breakfast and great view of the neighborhood. There is a full house of antiques, history books, pictures and a "proof of the past" scrap book to examine while enjoying your stay.

Just a few minutes walk through a safe and historic neighborhood to our beautiful downtown Galesburg.

The space
Single room with full back and includes Continental Breakfast.

The Innkeeper's Room is named after the founders of Innkeeper's Coffee Shop on Seminary. It has a queen size bed with new mattress, sheets, pillows, a full bath, TV, mini-frig, desk/makeup stand, and extra chairs for comfort. In addition, you have access to a full kitchen and a self-serve continental breakfast, dining room, combined front and music room, side parlor, private office, and many intimate spaces to enjoy with family and friends.

At the end of your day, enjoy a glass of wine on either the front porch or back deck. Both are different experiences guaranteed to fill your emotional basket. Be sure to rub your hands over the herbal plants to fill your space with aromatic delight. When ready, retreat to your room, grab a snack and open the door to this grandiose yet quiet room.

We are Niels and Linda Lewis, and we are happy to be the new hosts of The Great House in Galesburg, IL. We have both spent most of our lives in Galesburg and are very active and committed to the community. Our love for the town and experience in travel brings new ideas we would like to expand upon this house.
Linda: I attended Carl Sandburg College and Eastern Illinois University. I spent most of my career as a Buyer for The Gates Rubber Company in Galesburg and Columbia, MO, then retired. This gave me an opportunity to invent, develop, patent, and take to market my idea, Flipple. I can show this to you if we meet. Covid ended my venture, and I am thankful – long story.
Niels: I was born in Coppenhagen, the son of a pilot and lived in the Bahamas, England, KS, Jersey (the Island), Tanzania, PA, IL. I have now lived here for 31 years and feel like a native of Galesburg.
I got my BA in Chemistry from Illinois State University am an area Sales Director for Suez WT. This puts me on the road quite a bit which makes me even more appreciative of a place like The Great House.
My wife and I love to travel two ways; the familiar which is comfortable and predictable and the completely unknown where we are expecting an adventure. We hope that you will be able to experience both when you visit The Great House; a very comfortable space that is also going to be outside of the traditional hotel experience.
