We come from a little sleepy river town and wanted to experience all the good things we have heard about Galena. We went online and picked out Farmers Guest House simply by the photos! What a wonderful experience it was! Don and Susan are the Best Inn Keepers and their story is a dream come true! It's the kind of... More

I have reviewed Farmers Guest House before and I am glad to say it is still the best B&B in Galena. I had another wonderful weekend away (this time girlfriends get-a-way for my Birthday!) and was amazed at all the improvements Susan & Don have made to the FGH. The robes in the rooms, the lap desks, the breakfasts, the... More

Stayed at The Farmer's Guest House a weekend during the winter and I had the most fabulous time. First, let me start by saying I was completely floored at how close to the downtown strip (where all the shops and restaurants are) they were. When I first walked in I was completely captivated by how lovely the furnishings and decorations... More

Needing to have a short get-a-way after a very stressful year, we lucked upon an incredible value that turned into an even more incredible experience at the Farmer's Guest House. We were delighted that the awesome Christmas decor was still up when we arrived and kind of stalked around the house camera in hand, netting some lovely photos of the... More

Thank you for your review. Taking down Christmas decorations and putting up others is always a two or three day process and we are so delighted that the guests, like yourselves, who were here while this was being done were so very gracious and understanding as the ornaments came off the tree. We try to do most of the work... More

Not sure where to start.. I seriously don't have a bad thing to say about this place! From the accommodations to the staff, I had a wonderful experience. My partner made the arrangements for my birthday. A 4-day getaway and much-needed break from the stress of the city. Upon our arrival, we were cheerfully greeted by Susan, the inn-keeper. She...

My husband and I stayed at the Farmer's Guest House for 2 nights for our wedding anniversary. Susan, Don and Charles made us feel so comfortable while we were there. The B&B was exceptionally clean with a very comfortable bed and the breakfast was out of this world! Thank you for making our weekend getaway a fabulous one!

We stayed at Farmers Guest House 3 nights over New Year's Eve and we had a wonderful stay. Don and Susan were excellent hosts and made you feel very welcome. There were many nice couples staying there at the same time and we enjoyed talking to them over breakfast and wine time in the afternoon. Don and Susan had answer... More

My wife and I just returned from two nights in Galena staying at the Farmers Guest House. We could not have been happier with our entire stay. FGH was very clean, friendly, and convenient. This was our first time at a B&B but will not be our last. It was great to feel like we had a home base that... More

Don and Charles were very sweet, and accommodating. Everything was clean, and cozy.This was our first stay at a b&b, and we were very impressed. We missed breakfast the first day because we slept late, but on the second day we were able to make it, and it was fantastic. I'm glad I read the reviews before picking a place... More
