Meet The Innkeepers

St. Louis Area, Alton, IL Bed & Breakfast Host & Hostess


Beall Mansion hosts, Jim & Sandy, have spared no efforts in restoring this stately manor. Having said that, we were made very comfortable, with every need anticipated. . . .

Jim Sandy

My wife, Sandy, and I “purchased” The Beall Mansion (i.e. became the indentured servants to the bank) in November of 1996. The following month we took possession and upon completion of the 1st phase of a massive 20 year plus restoration project—we opened to the public June 13, 1998.

Sandy Belote

Sandy, is nothing less than a superwoman overseeing restoration and staff, decorating, gardening. and working hard to insure that everything is "perfect" for you during your stay.

Always up to a challenge, as a young home maker she built her own furniture (which we use in our private quarters)—today she makes the Lavender Scented Bath Salts provided for your guest bath or whirlpool. Martha Stewart look out!

Sandy’s loves include a good morning cup of coffee (with lots of cream), entertaining, dancing, dark chocolate (and hopefully me most of the time).

She is also an avid gardener—and in the spring of 2001 successfully completed a Master Gardener course from the University of Illinois Extension Service. (I regularly have to pull her by her hair out of the gardens and back inside . Ouch!)

James Belote

An executive of an unrelated family owned business in St. Louis, at The Beall Mansion An Elegant Bed & Breakfast Inn my responsibilities include marketing, tours, and special events.

My loves include business, history, floating, hiking, bicycling and satisfying my creative yearnings as a published freelance writer.

Sandy and Jim

Sandy and I share a common passion for fine wine, gourmet food, travel, classic architecture, art, music, things of quality and beauty . . . and of course, for pampering you—our special guests.

Whether traveling for business pleasure, or bleisure—please come and experience for yourself why everyone is saying, "Its better at The BEALL."
