Rest in elegant beauty and history at the Beall Mansion Bed and Breakfast. European influence meets American affluence in the elaborately decorated retreat nestled on a property of manicured gardens in a historic Victorian neighborhood. A hidden gem, come to stay at Beall or take a guided tour to step back into one of Alton’s most opulent households.

Built as a wedding gift for railroad baron Z.B. Job’s son and daughter-in-law in 1903, the Beall Mansion was later purchased in 1909 by Edmond Beall. Beall served as an Alton alderman, served four mayoral terms, and served as a senator, industrialist, and financier.

The grand old home sits proudly in the Middletown District of Alton alongside a host of historic Victorian and Federal-style buildings. Each room of the mansion is uniquely and classically decorated with hand-carved wood furniture, high ceilings, antique paintings and sculptures, and fine details. Original wood floors, a stately staircase, and plush oriental rugs lead to rooms that will leave you feeling like royalty. Sleep and relax first class in triple sheeted feather beds, claw-foot and Jacuzzi tubs, and enjoy continental and gourmet breakfast options, 24-hour hot beverage services, a chocolate bar, and spa services!

The lavish B&B is the perfect venue for a full-service wedding and reception or corporate retreat, offering indoor and outdoor meeting areas, event planning at the mansion, and professionally landscaped photo opportunities. Multiple packages are available to organize your special day.

Beall is close to Alton’s bustling downtown with restaurants, shopping, museums, and more- tour a Lock and Dam, go on historic tours, visit orchards, wineries, and take in the great outdoors- Southwest Illinois has a multitude of activities- from fall leaf peeping in autumn, American bald eagle watching in winter, and fair-weather riverboat cruises, to ghost-hunting in one of America’s most haunted towns, visiting one of the oldest Native American sites in the U.S. and hiking the largest state park in Illinois!

Beall Mansion B&B is 25 minutes from St. Louis and Lambert International Airport, 90 minutes from the Illinois capitol of Springfield, 3.5 hours from Kansas City, and 4.5 hours from Chicago. There is never a dull season in Southwest Illinois! Fill your day with unique events and recharge for tomorrow at the one-of-a-kind Beall Mansion!
