My wife and I stayed here both Friday and Saturday evening. Upon arriving, it was a little tricky getting the key's, but Victoria left notes on how to proceed to the rooms. She left a number to call for any questions. We loved the room, spacious room with bathroom with standup shower. We were in room 2 which was at... More

We have been to Galena many times. By far, this is our favorite place to stay. We love the charm of the Room (Grey Eagle). It has a small kitchenette and fireplace. It is like a mini apartment. The decor fits the charm of the building. The patio is a neat place to sip champagne in the morning and beat... More

We really enjoy the quaint 3 bedroom with the shared kitchen. It's really a great time for 3 couples. We can each have our private room with a bath, but also enjoy each-others company with the shared kitchen. We always have a great time!!

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay again. Renting the third floor rooms with kitchen works really well for couples. It's nice to have your own room and bath and then have the kitchen to gather or the big outside deck. Looking forward to your return. Victoria More

Very nice and clean. Great, charming atmosphere! Not too far of a walk to shops and restaurants....maybe a half mile. Loved the historical feel of the buildings. Breakfast was included and offered a good variety of traditional "continental breakfast" options.

Location was good, can easily walk to town. Room was clean and comfortable. Only small negative was could not find the thermostat and it got pretty warm in the room with the fireplace going. Maybe was there and just did not see it. Otherwise, very nice stay.

This is one of our favorite places to stay in Galena. The rooms are clean, cozy, and the least expensive in the Galena area. We have stayed in the suites as well as the standard rooms. They are all nice, only difference being that the suites have a jacuzzi. They are also very close to town, so you don't have... More

We have stayed at many places in Galena. This is our favorite so we have returned many times. Accommodations are roomy and the best value we have found. Short and easy walk to downtown. Delicious food in the breakfast room. Love to hang out on the back decks and in the courtyard. Perfect for groups.

My sister and I decided to take a "sisters' trip" to Galena, just the two of us. We were only looking for a place to sleep, shower, and have breakfast (to save some money). Neither of us had ever stayed in a B&B.We didn't want the standard hotel room, we wanted something unique to Galena. the Renaissance fit the bill... More

We stayed 2 nights and were very impressed with the location and the homemade pastries --all included with the free breakfast! The grounds are pleasing; plenty of nice outdoor seating among the interesting landscape. We will be back!

My husband and I decided last minute to do a weekend in Galena. We thought we had got lucky when we called and there was a cancellation for the Grand Era Suite. I did read reviews prior to booking and was concerned about the noise on Rte 20 as written about. When I called, I spoke with a lady named... More
