Like others, this was a return visit for us. The environment is so comfortable and a strong desire to make your stay what you want it to be. Don and Susan spend time to know their guests and offer suggestions when asked. Many resources are available for the area activities. As others have mentioned, the 4th was fun. The best... More

This was our second stay at Farmers' Guest House and it was still a great time for us. We enjoyed watching the fireworks from the roof of the parking garage at the Desoto, tickets were held for guests of the B and B. The breakfasts were still awesome and the easy walk to the downtown is always a plus. Thanks... More

My husband and I, along with three other couples, recently enjoyed a fabulous stay at Farmers Guest House. The mere fact that this was our 4th stay in twenty months should tell you a lot about our love of FGH! Our friends are also repeat customers. The accommodations are very attractive and comfortable. Every room has a flat screen TV... More

It was our first experience with a B&B and we were not disappointed :) Super friendly staff, clean rooms and common areas and a very yummy breakfast. We stayed in the Charlotte Suite. It was very spacious and cozy. There were pros and cons to the location of the suite. It's located right off the dinning room so pro: it... More

Just want to start off by saying thank you Don & Susan for the wonderful hospitality. It was our first time staying at a bed & breakfast and we loved it! The breakfast was wonderful! We stayed in the Aimee. The Aimee room was just perfect. It was pretty cozy just like the rest of the house. It was also... More

Thank you for your review. We love being in the downtown historic district and only one block off of Main Street - it makes walking into town just what you need after a big breakfast but not such a distance that it is a chore. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Many happy returns, Susan & Don More

This trip was a return to Galena after almost twenty years. Farmers Guest House was the perfect place to stay to get reacquainted. It's a great launching point for exploring downtown. More than just being convenient, the B&B was most welcoming. Both the decor and grounds were fun to investigate. Our room, the Julia Suite was spacious, comfortable, and extremely... More

Our kids bought us a weekend stay here for a Xmas gift. We stayed for 2 nights in mid-June with friends. Don and Susan are wonderful and gracious as hosts! They cater to your every need! Susan would even ask if there were any special dietary requests for breakfast! During evening "wine time" they would chat with us and really... More

We had a lovely stay there. Don and Susan were wonderful Inn Keepers. All of our needs were cared for. The location is quite close to the South end of Main St. They have a huge selection of videos to chose from if you want to watch a movie in your room. We went down to the main dining area... More

Thank you for your review. The DVD library has over 400 titles, many of them recent releases, and is a big hit for guests who want to relax in front of a movie at night. WineTime is included with every room for all guests and is a guest favorite. We serve the wine with local cheeses from Galena River Wine... More

We stayed at The Farmers Guest House in June we had a fabulous time. Food was great , rooms were clean, the inn keepers were awesome! Don and Susan really make you feel welcome and at home. Without a doubt the Inn Keepers make the difference from staying the night in a strange town to spending the night as a... More
