Green Tree Inn, Elsah, Illinois and 1 day and 29 years

Molly and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary at the Green Tree Inn ( in Elsah, Illinois this past weekend
(Big THANK YOU to Carolyn Schlueter).

We had never stayed at a B&B and really did not know what to expect. After meeting the owners, Connie and Gary,any trepidation disappeared. These folks are the real deal. It was like we had known them all our lives. Their operation coddles….no ….pampers their guests. We stayed in the Robin’s Nest Room and it was great. Tastefully decorated with antiques,clean and a bed that I would be tempted to steal,yes, it was that comfortable. Comfortable would be an understatement. Breakfast was First Class,homemade cinnamon rolls, apple crisp, sausage, heavenly hash browns,baked eggs. I broke my diet with no regret and no guilt. We will be back and we would recommend it to anyone with no hesitation.

Quote of the trip was when one of the other couples heard it was our anniversary and asked how long we had been married and Molly said 1 day…………and 29 years. She was,as always, eloquent. LOL

We had our DSLR’s set up for wildlife so I used our little point & shoot to photograph the inn.

  1. Congratulations again on your 1 day and 29 years of marriage!!! That was so clever of Molly to say it like that!! So glad it worked out for you to use the B&B Certificate for your anniversary!!!

    • Thanks Carolyn
      We both appreciate you giving us the Gift Certificate for the stay at the Green Tree Inn. Also thanks for having breakfast with us Saturday am. Hope you got some good eagle shots to make up for the lack of activity elsewhere.
