I'll keep my review of the Farmer's Guesthouse short and sweet..... I absolutely love this place! Going to Galena is an amazing getaway for my husband and I who live in busy Chicago. Staying at this inn is like going to visit family. The Inn keepers (owners) Susanne and Don are so nice, welcoming, and fun to be around. Breakfast... More

We had a wonderful weekend at Farmers Guest House. Excellent room, very nicely decorated. Sue and Don were great hosts. The happy hour was a lot of fun and the breakfast each morning were fantastic. We would definitely stay there again!

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed WineTime, which is included in the room rate for all guests. We get together with those guests who would like to share a few laughs, a glass of wine and some local cheeses. It isn't limited to an hour but is at the discretion of the host, which means... More

An excellent bed and breakfast. Nice accommodations. Cozy, warm, perfect for staying in, playing games, head into town and general snuggling. Wife and I have been coming for 15 years under various owners. New owners are great and the place looks great and breakfast was good.

Everything we wanted. Enjoyed it so much I'm writing this review before leaving. Friendly, quiet, comfortable, accommodating and about 245 other nice adjectives. Breakfast was awesome. Felt comfortable here from the moment we walked in.

Spent a lovely weekend in Galena that was only made better by the tremendous service at the Farmers Guest House. The accommodations were lovely - a recent renovation provided modern amenities while preserving the quaint nature of this 1800's inn. The owners - Don and Susan could not have been more hospitable. They pointed us to a great restaurant as... More

Thank you for your review. Yes, Grandma Rose's Banana Bread is a favorite and always was when I was growing up - it really was from my Grandma Rose! We take great pride in serving a full, fresh cooked, locally sourced breakfast to all guests each and every morning in our huge dining room with tables for 2, 4, 6... More

My boyfriend booked us a room at Farmers Guest House to celebrate my birthday back in November of 2014. We arrived Friday evening at 6:00pm and were welcomed by Susan. The wine and cheese tasting held nightly from 5:00pm to 6:00pm was just wrapping up so Susan graciously sent us up with a bottle of wine. My boyfriend had chosen... More

Let me start by saying as a rule I do not like staying at a B&B. As a matter of fact I avoid them. I was quite apprehensive after learning we were booked at the Farmers Guest House, but was willing to take one for the team with my girlfriend. After spending the weekend at Susan's and Don's, the proprietors,... More

We recently stayed at the Farmers Guest House, it was our first time at a Bed and Breakfast. We skied at Chestnut and spent the night at Farmers, it was warm and cozy, the food was delicious and the bed was very comfortable.
