Main Street Inn | Fine Guest Lodging in historic downtown Galena, IL


It may still be fall, but it's the 
perfect time of year to start thinking about Winter in Galena!
The Christmas Season is not that far off!

Christmas season in Galena is a wonderful time to be in town! There are so many wonderful weekend celebrations and we currently have rooms open for both of them!

December 1-2 - Fire in the Sky Weekend
The Galena Downtown Business Association is hosting this event for the very first time and it's sure to be a real game changer in our Holiday Season line up! Experience Galena as the fireworks light up the sky! Come early and spend the day shopping, sight-seeing, dining and then watch the skies light up!

December 8-9 - Living Windows and Luminaria
Don't miss one of the most beautiful and romantic visions of the year! Stroll down the Helluva Half Mile and watch more than a dozen windows come alive with holiday inspired animation. Here is a video for you to check out to see what it's all about!

After the windows come alive, the streets come alive with light! From Main Street to the hills overlooking Grant Park, all of Galena will be glowing! Enter a land of enchantment on this magical night with more than 5,000 candlelit luminaries on the streets, steps and sidewalks! 

Local businesses offer extended hours so that you can take advantage of this magical weekend and do some holiday shopping while enjoying all of the beauty that is on display!

Living Windows go from 4pm to 6pm and the Night of the Luminaria goes from 6pm until 9pm.

The beauty of this weekend is a romantic and amazing site! Our Innkeeper got engaged over the weekend just last year and another couple had a renewal of vows with the Luminaria as a magical backdrop!

And now back to Fall!

Did you think we were going to skip over fall entirely?
No way we could! 
Fall is another very beautiful time of year here in Galena! 
The leaves change, the air has a crispness to it, the lattes switch over to pumpkin spice!
There are boots and sweaters in your closet just waiting to explore Galena with you!
Fall weekends at the Inn fill quickly so get that calendar out now 
and figure out when you'd like to come visit us! 
Weekdays are always a great choice too!

When I think of fall, I think of a nice, warm beverage in my hands and brightly colored leaved crunching under my feet.
