My husband and I had a wonderful time. The place is beautiful, charming, and the staff were so personable. We stayed at the cottage and loved breakfast (everything was home made) and wine time. When we go back to Galena, we'll definitely being staying here again.

My wife and I visited Galena for our first time for our 6 year wedding anniversary. We chose to stay at the Farmers' Guest House based on the great reviews. This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and we loved it. Susan and Don were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and home... More

We visited Galena for our honeymoon in 2004, so we wanted to come back for our 10 year wedding anniversary. I can honestly say this time was better than before and it's mostly in part to our stay at Farmer's Guest House. Susan and Don were very welcoming and so friendly. We stayed in the Charlotte Room, which was sooooo... More

Susan and Don were wonderful hosts. This was our first time to Galena and weren't really sure what to expect. My husband and I have stayed in one other bed and breakfast,however, now we know what a real B&B is. Check in was quick, informative and very friendly. Each morning breakfast was a treat. Susan works with all dietary restrictions... More

Super location…everything is within walking distance. Mid-western friendliness in spades..we enjoyed getting to know Susan and Don as well as the other guests. There are games and puzzles in the common areas. Yummy cookies all day long! One morning we had to leave before breakfast to get to Taliesin and Susan provided hot breakfast sandwiches, muffins, fruit, coffee and juice... More

I have not stayed at many B&B type accomodations but really enjoyed our two night stay at the FGH. Fun meeting new people and Don and Susan were great hosts. Very nice breakfast...and plenty of cookies the rest of the time. Short walk to downtown shops and other attractions.

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

Thank you for your review. We enjoyed visiting with you once again. Yes, Charles is an amazing housekeeper, but he is also charming and interesting to chat with during your stay. He has been with Farmers Guest House for 14 years and can tell you all kinds of fun facts about the inn and the destination. We look forward to... 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
