We recently celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary in Galena. The overnight at Farmers Guest House was a surprise for my wife.

Susan and Don are a delight! They are aware of details and very interested in making sure you enjoy your stay. We enjoyed walking downtown Galena, experiencing the local restaurants and my husband enjoyed the spa services. We are hoping to return again very soon!

Susan and Don are the most gracious and generous hosts I've ever met, and the Farmer's Guest House is a perfect little haven--within easy walking distance to all of the Galena attractions, but outside of the hustle and bustle of the tourism. My room was cool and comfortable (even for a hot August weekend), the bed was both soft and... More

My sister and I stayed in the Charlotte suite for 3 nights, and it was perfect for a girls' getaway. Spacious, comfortable room, clean, beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were absolutely fantastic, and I'm not usually a breakfast person. I woke up excited every morning to see what would be served!

Thank you for your review. We enjoy hosting many girlfriends' getaways each year and accommodate them well with our large common rooms, king bed suites, comfy robes, whirlpool tubs and cookies! And, with over 400 movies to enjoy it's the perfect evening for reconnecting with friends. We are happy to hear that you will be returning to see us again.... More

This B&B, owned and run by Don and Susan, is perfect for a couples' getaway. It is a short walk from Galena's charming Main Street. Susan's awesome breakfasts are homemade with local ingredients, and she and Don know the town inside-out and are full of helpful recommendations for restaurants and shops. I definitely recommend!
