This was our first time at Farmers Guest House and it was a wonderful experience! Don and Susan were excellent hosts and very cordial. The room accommodations were so comfortable (a great night's sleep); loved the bedding and towels. Our selection during Wine Time was great and we appreciate being able to relax before heading out to dinner (reservations made... More

My husband and I stayed in the Julia suite which has recently been renovated. It was BEAUTIFUL! Big jetted tub, fireplace, sitting room, mini fridge and giant bedroom! The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed borrowing movies from their large selection. Breakfast was DELICIOUS and very filling! We were able to skip lunch we were so full from breakfast! Don... More

My husband and I decided to give Farmer's Guest House a try because of all the great reviews and certificate of excellence it had received. Our room was small, but I was forewarned since in the description it does say cozy. LOL It was quaint and very clean, and they had some nice towels and linens. But the bed and... More

I've stayed at a few Bed and Breakfasts in the area, but Susan and Don by far have me the best experience. The breakfast was phenomenal, the rooms were adorable and clean, and the owners are the sweetest people I've ever met.

I've stayed with Don and Susan several times and they are very hospitable and welcoming hosts. Farmers Guest House has a great mix of amenities, including a fine wine hour and proximity to downtown Galena (it's a five minute walk to Main Street with its restaurants and such. Along with very comfortable surroundings, I can also heartily recommend the fine... More

We spent three evenings in the cottage where we enjoyed quiet time just for the two of us. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of the fireplace, the hot tub and the king bed. Don and Susan were great hosts who respected our quiet time but were extremely friendly and helpful. Their breakfasts were superb, the best at any bed and... More

Thank you for your review. Susan is very proud of her breakfast selections and begins each day at 6 a.m. preparing lovely creations for our guests. Each day we serve a freshly made from scratch, multi-course, hot breakfast in our spacious dining room equipped with tables for 2, 4, 6 or more. Susan also accommodates any food allergies, sensitivities or... More

My friend and I have been there two years in a row. The breakfast, coffee and cookie jar is awesome and the staff is excellent! The rooms are very spacious and homey. The best things in the room, you have comfy bed and your own bath room. I recommend it to all!

Don & Susan ~ amazing hosts with a fantastic B&B! We stayed in the Julia suite which was recently renovated and quite charming. All of the 9 rooms are amazing decorated with period style items. Each has it's own name and decor - so pleasing to the eye. Our whirlpool tub was so inviting after many hours of walking. We... More

Having come off a highly stressful week, our weekend at Farmers was the perfect escape. Galena is no stranger to us. The town is charming in itself. The Inn meet all our expectations and more. Our suite was clean and comfortable, our hosts made us feel right at home. Breakfast was fine dining with a homespun flare. We enjoyed "wine... More

My wife and I didn't know anything about Galena's B&B scene, so I simply guessed at one that was close to downtown and I guessed right. The Farmer's Guest House is right on highway 20 and only a short walk to downtown, which is good during the St. Patrick's celebrations. Don and Susan are awesome hosts and owners and if... More
