A tall, dark, and elegant gentleman in white tie and tails opened the door, and said ??Welcome to the Beall Mansion.? His smile and the ambience were so warm, we immediately shook off our winter blues and chill. Once inside, everywhere we gazed were wonderful things: large statuary, fully-restored hearths, staircases, wood floors, pocket doors, tapestries, Persian carpets, a pianoforte, and an endless collection of art and finery. We were transported back to 19th century opulence by walking through this door in Alton, Illinois. Scintillating fireside conversation and brandy followed before we were shown to our room. The master??s chamber featured a king-sized bed, sofa, oriental carpets, large fireplace, French mirror, five windows, an elephant desk, and even though all the modern conveniences were present, they were tastefully hidden from view in delightful antique furnishings. The bathroom??s Italian marble made each step cool and delightful to the feet as we made our way to the huge whirlpool tub over which an ethereal goddess presides. There was also a walk-in shower, sink, and every imaginable toiletry available, along with two elegant bathrobes in our specific sizes for us to use then take home. Alton was an Epicurean??s dream, with dinners at Bossanova and Gentelin??s and gourmet breakfasts in bed at the Beall Mansion. We enjoyed visits to the Mississippi River yacht club, parks, and museum, but our time at the Beall Mansion was heavenly. On our last night experienced therapists gave us couple??s massage in our suite, using aroma therapy oils and body treatments from the East. What relaxation! Then we retired to the whirlpool tub for a soak, and discovered a bottle of lavender crystals especially for us. The fire and bed were so inviting, and we enjoyed a romantic night together any Honeymoon couple would envy. An escape to the Beall Mansion will put you in another world, another time, and if you visit in winter, even in another season.

My wife and I enjoyed the tour given by Jim. It is clear he enjoys the history of the home and has a passion for it. My wife and I enjoyed the architecture of the home and the furnishings within it. We will definitely be back to enjoy a night in the fall. It will be nice to get away from the city and take in the scenery of Alton.

My husband and I stayed two nights that this WONDERFUL B&B. I would reccomend this to anyone who was looking to stay in Alton (or Grafton for that matter.)
Jim and Sandy were excellent hosts and every little detail was taken care of!!! I highly reccomend paying the extra $$ and getting breakfast in bed. What a decadent treat!
Also, the 24-hour chocolate bar was very tasty for those "midnight cravings"...

Jim & Sandy,
Once again, you have outdone yourself! Our attempt at a quiet, get-away was accomplished with the help of your beautiful B & B. Service was impeccable, as was the house & the grounds. Thank you for the recommendation of "Genetil's On Broadway" for dinner--some of the best grouper we have ever had! We look forward to many stays with you in the near future!

This is a MUST STAY for B & B goers that desire a gorgeous yet quiet accommodations. The quaint town of Alton has much history to explore and it isn't to far away from St. Louis. Though on high ground, it is a nice walk to the Mississippi River and an eclectic array of shopping. The town has a walking and driving tour which is a must see.

Located on Millionaire's Row, this beautiful and large B & B holds its own with the surrounding Victorian Mansions and easily stands out with its breathtaking gardens and decor.

The house is wonderfully furnished in period and Victorian splendor, and the grounds are exquisitely maintained and loaded with all sorts of blooms and interest.

The rooms are all beautiful with modern bathrooms. The hot tub was great! The downstairs has a nice 24/7 chocolate bar.

A mansion is just a mansion without fabulous people. The innkeepers, Jim and Sandy Belote, are very sweet, accommodating hosts. They are easy to talk to and will gladly explain the interesting history of the Beall Estate.

We had a travel glitch, and they solved it immediately. Also Sandy gave us a safer route into St. Louis as a precaution. They provide the extras that you can not find in a brochure or web site.

My only criticism and it's minimal, is that with the exception of a complimentary continental breakfast, the Beall Mansion has a multi-tiered breakfast plan that costs additional. I guess most people like options, but I thought that a simple cooked breakfast included (though they do have a breakfast in bed option for a n additional cost), would be more aesthetically pleasing.

Regardless, if you want an AMAZING romantic stay near St. Louis or want to discovered the hometown of Robert Wadlow (The World's Tallest Man), Alton and the AMAZING Beall Mansion is a must stay. You will be treated like a celebrity.

What a great place to stay! Went there for a relaxing couple of days and was pampered beyond my expectations. Jim made sure that anything I needed a reservation for was made (by him) and to my liking. The house was beautifully kept and my room was spectacular. Add on top of that the chocolate bar, spa massage in my room, whirlpool tub and great service and I was on cloud nine. Sandy does a wonderful job keeping the grounds looking wonderful and inviting to walk through. Thank you Jim and Sandy for a very memorable trip. I will definitely recommend your lovely bed and breakfast to others.

My husband and I stayed at the Beall Mansion for a week. We loved the chocolate bar, coffee bar, the room, and everything else about the Beall Mansion. The atmoshpere was wonderful as well as the landscaping of the yard. We would recommend this place to anyone needing some time to refresh a marriage or relaxiation in general.

It's apparent that Jim and Sandy really go out of their way to make you feel at home in this wonderfully conserved Victorian style mansion. From the time they spend in decorating, furnishing and up keeping the place to the time they are willing to spend chatting with you about anything from the history of the house to the history of the town, it is evident that the Beall Mansion is not just a business for them, but more importantly, a passion. This transcends in every detail of the house.

We had a really good time there and look forward to staying at the Beall again.
