My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Farmers' Guest House during the beginning of April for a weekend getaway to celebrate both our five-year anniversary and my husband's birthday. It was a nice change of pace to stay in such a historic building, I believe the house dates all the way back to 1867. The decor... More

Thank you for your review. It sure is a pleasure to not have to get in the car all weekend yet have the entire town accessible to you - that's one of the many things we really enjoy about Farmers Guest House. We can't wait to see you again and enjoyed your comment about the fitness center and swimming pool!... More

What a great getaway for us moms and our daughters. Susan and Don were very cordial innkeepers-you couldn't find anyone any more accommodating. They met are every need plus even more than we asked for. Our two rooms were spacious, clean, well lit, plenty of mirrors and plug-ins. The beds were very comfortable. Wine time and the breakfast was fantastic.... More

This was the first B&B my wife and I have stayed at and it was a great experience. Susan and Don helped make the weekend a great and relaxing time. The breakfast and wine at 5pm was perfect. The location is great, just a short walk downtown. Definitely going to visit again in the future.

My wife and I spent a mid-week break at Farmers' last week. It is exactly what a B&B should be - great location, homey feel, relaxing atmosphere. Susan and Don are exceptional hosts - you feel like you've known them forever and they take the time (at 5:00 wine gatherings and breakfast) to get to know you and offer advise... More

Kudos to my husband (Marco) for planning this trip all by himself,and surprising me with the dates to get ready. This is a trip of firsts for us ... our first trip to Galena, and our first stay at a B&B. Our stay at Farmer's Guest House immediately set the bar high of any expectation we have for any future...

Thank you for your review. We also enjoyed visiting with you during WineTime and agree that the cookies are fabulous - but, Don is the cookie baker in the house, not Susan. Susan makes the amazing breakfasts and Don bakes the cookies. We look forward to seeing you again. Many happy returns, Don & Susan More

My husband and I needed an easy laid back weekend getaway. We loved our time at the Farmer's Guest House. When we first arrived, we were invited to "wine time" which was a really nice way to start our weekend. What was even better, was the ability to be able to walk into the downtown area after the wine time.... More

Thank you for your review. We also enjoy walking in to town and love the location as do our guests. I must confess, the olive oil lemongrass soaps in our rooms are hand made, but not home made. I love them too! We hope to see you again in the near future. Many happy returns, Susan More

My husband and I needed a little get away and choose Farmers Guest House and were very happy we did. We started the weekend with a couples massage when we arrived on Friday night. What an amazing massage, one of the best I've had and a great way to decompress. FGH is very cute and well cared for. Don and... More

Thank you for your review. Most of our guests feel the same way as you; delighted that they don't have to get in the car during their entire visit. With Main St. right around the corner, we are convenient and comfortable. We have addressed the space issue you brought up in the Aimee bathroom and are installing a shelf that... More

I've stayed at FGH one other time and was blown away by the excellent service. I didn't think it could be better and HEAP -- it was even better the second time! The FGH is a 5 minute walk from the downtown Galena (shopping and eating) area. They offer wonderful breakfast, good coffee, wine time, maps to other locations, suggestions... More

We had a great time at Farmer's Guest House! Don and Susan were so friendly and accommodating! The food was amazing. My husband loved the homemade chocolate chip cookies. The couple's massage was just what we needed, and it was so convenient to have it right on site. When I got sick and didn't feel like heading out for dinner,... More

This is the first bed and breakfast I have stayed at and has possibly set the bar high for any others! Susan, Don and Charles were all very attentive and awesome hosts.
