The Farmer's Guest House is both comfortable and elegant. Each room has it's own "personality", resulting in a luxurious experience with a family feel. The hosts, Susan and Don, are friendly, professional, and very helpful. There is nothing they cannot tell you about Galena, or the nearby area.The breakfasts are exquisite!!!! Susan's creations have won awards, and she expertly changes... More

A very nice choice for a single person or couples. The inn offers quiet and privacy, but also a time to socialize, if you choose, at Happy Hour (wine and cheese) and at the delicious breakfast. One of the few B&B's that offers a TV in the rooms. Great location. Only downsides are the stairs and having to walk across... More

We had a wonderful time at the Farmers Guest House - our room was fabulous- comfortable bed and great linens. Super jacuzzi tub too!! The owners are the nicest people and very hospitable. They saved us by helping us with a dinner reservation that we forgot to make ourselves. We will definately be back!!

Our second time to this oasis. My husband and I enjoyed the delicious breakfasts, the wine time, and our stay in the cottage. It was an indulgence but so worth it to upgrade to the separate location. Everything is clean and fresh. The people who stayed were fun to get to know as well. The short distance to the downtown... More

Stayed at Farmers Guest House this past weekend. Susan and Don are great hosts. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was delicious! The ambience and building brought back wonderful memories of places we visited in Italy. Would definitely stay there again.

Aug. 21, 2015 Having been our third time at the Farmers Guest House as another great escape for us. We stayed in the Minnie room and were very satisfied and happy with our room. From the moment we walked in the front doors and were greeted by our hosts until the time we checked out it was a great experience!... More

Farmers Guest House was the highlight of our trip through Galena. The hosts were warm but professional. The rooms were delightful. And the other guests were friendly. We were passing through on a road trip so our only regret was not having time to stay longer-- or having time to book a massage as they have a 'spa' room where... More

The owners were very friendly and helpful in making dinner reservations. The location was close to downtown and we enjoyed the beautiful garden area in the back. The breakfast was delicious and we were able to change our menu if we wanted to. ....

My daughter and I stayed for three nights a few weeks ago and loved every minute of it! Bob and Susan were friendly, gracious, and wonderful hosts. Breakfast was great and Susan worked with our dietary restrictions wonderfully. Wine time in the evening was delightful. I can't wait to return!

Susan and Don were very welcoming, very informative. We loved the place, very clean and close to all the activities. We were very pleased with our room. We love visiting Galena and now have a place we look forward to staying at. Thank you Susan and Don.
