For the third time our expectations were outdone by the superlative care that Susan and Don take to make sure that everything is perfect. I was even pleasantly surprised to have learned a little more about Charles from himself. Everything is immaculate. We love the modern amenities and convenience of being so close to the historic downtown (not too far... More

I've stayed at several bed & breakfast inns around the country. The Farmers Guest House is certainly the friendliest one I've encountered. It's easy to find and very clean. The linens are white, clean and fresh. No strong fragrance on them for those like myself, that are sensitive to that. I stayed 3 nights and each breakfast was delicious, unique,... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Farmer's Guest House. The owners, Don and Susan, are simply wonderful. The hospitality level is superb. The rooms, cleanliness, and uniqueness are stellar. The full breakfast is delicious right down to the specialty coffee from a local Galena coffee store. Everything is homemade! We truly enjoyed every moment. Even the staff...specifically... More

I refer to TripAdvisor constantly, and now its time for me to give back to the TA community. I have been rather lazy about ever reviewing anyone on here, but the Farmers' Guest House has inspired me to actually do it. That's how wonderful it is. It was actually the first time my husband and I have ever stayed at... More

We stayed at the Farmers Guest House this past weekend and had a lovely time! The rooms were beautiful, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. It was so relaxing! We also had massages which started out the weekend perfectly. We will definitely return! Susan and Don and Charles made our stay incredible!

We returned to Farmer's Guest House and stayed in the Julia Suite this time - so peaceful and comfortable. Don, Sue and Charles completely spoiled us, in addition to great suggestions for activities. They are all very knowledgable about the community and special activities. Thank you very much, and of course - we'll be back!

We stayed for two nights in the Charlotte Suite and the decor was fabulous. I loved the large wall filled with different clocks. The Inn was conveniently located near downtown Galena. The Innkeepers Don and Susan were very hospitable and resourceful. The breakfast and snacks at "Wine Time" were delicious.This was my first time staying at a B&B and the... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Farmers' Guest House and felt quite at home and welcomed there by Susan and Don. They work hard to provide a relaxing and comfortable experience for all their guests. Our room was exceptionally clean and quaint. It was upstairs and towards the back of the house and was very quiet for a... More

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our first anniversary. It truly was as comfortable as home - unlimited pop and an outdoor deck for my husband, and a very comfortable bed and unlimited cookies for me! Don and Susan were very welcoming.

Thank you for your review. We have had Chocolate Chip Cookies and Peanut Butter Cookies all summer and will be changing to Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Raisin for the fall. You must come back and sample the new ones! Many happy returns, Susan & Don More

We stayed here for one night. The owners were so helpful and kind. The breakfast was exquisite. So simple yet so fancy. Great experience. I'll definetly be coming back. We couldn't have asked for better service from a B&B.
