We were married at Beall Mansion on oct. 3, 2009! My husband and I had the time of our life there. everything was beautiful and the service seemed flawless! All of our guests were shocked at how gorgeous and intimate the wedding was. We got comments about it all day long. Our overnight stays there felt right at home. It was so relaxing. The owners and their helpers were so considerate and just generally great people. I couldnt recommend this place enough, whether it was for a wedding, a reception, or a couple nights stay there. I couldnt imagine anything going better than it did. Thanks again to the Beall Mansion. We will be back soon.

I've stayed at Palaces in Italy that don't compare to this place! Jim & Sandi are amazing. Perfect attention to every single detail. I'm so glad we chose to get married at the Beall! Our wedding date was 03/25/17 and we plan to go back soon for our anniversary that we've already scheduled. In scheduling our anniversary return trip Jim made sure to ask about every detail - even scheduled our massages! Thanks so much Jim & Sandi!Sent on 01/12/2018

If you are looking for a smaller, elegant venue then this is the place for you! The owner, Jim, and his wife, Sandy, were extremely welcoming and warm people. Jim was very helpful and patient with us during the planning process for our wedding. This was by far our best experience at a bed and breakfast. The breakfast in bed upgrade was well worth the money and I suggest that anyone staying at The Beall should try it! They were also very accommodating of last minute changes that occurred. The food that The Beall had catered for our reception was amazing! My only suggestion, if you are planning on having your ceremony at The Beall is that you contract your own officiate. The officiate provided by The Beall, Rev. Mike Paddock, performed the wrong ceremony at our wedding (he did a catholic version and we are not catholic). This was disappointing, considering that two months prior to our wedding, we traveled over four hours so that we could meet with the officiate and choose the version we wanted. This was mistake had absolutely nothing to do with The Beall, however, and they were very apologetic even though it was not their fault. Jim and Sandy, I believe have since put new protocols in place to prevent this from happening again. Even with this mistake, the whole day was magical and was everything we wanted. We will be back soon to stay at The Beall and experience more of the town of Alton.
