Originally built by a railroad baron at the turn of the 20th century, this 10,000-square-foot mansion now serves as one of the finest B&Bs in southern Illinois. Guests at the Beall Mansion will find themselves nestled into Alton's Millionaire Row, part of the Middletown Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Guest rooms feature hardwood floors with Oriental rugs, high ceilings, canopy feathered beds in full, queen and king sizes; bathrooms feature Italian marble with complimentary bath salts, and guests can opt for a clawfoot tub or a whirlpool for two. King rooms also feature a fireplace with a hand-carved mantel. Guests also receive free Wi-Fi. 

A stay here is as much about the little extras as it is about the rooms themselves. Guests have access to hot beverages and a gourmet chocolate buffet around the clock, and an evening taste of cognac in the reading room is also complimentary. In-room spa services including couples massages can also be arranged.

If you hunger for something a little grander than the included continental breakfast, order a gourmet breakfast to your room, which features fresh fruit, an appetizer, an entree like butter-poached eggs in tomato-basil sauce or Tortuga rum French toast, a side dish and a dessert. 

The town of Alton, located alongside the Mississippi River, is also rich with history, boasting Civil War era monuments and memorial sites, as well the location of an Abraham Lincoln/Stephen Douglas debate.
