My friend and I have been there two years in a row. The breakfast, coffee and cookie jar is awesome and the staff is excellent! The rooms are very spacious and homey. The best things in the room, you have comfy bed and your own bath room. I recommend it to all!

Having come off a highly stressful week, our weekend at Farmers was the perfect escape. Galena is no stranger to us. The town is charming in itself. The Inn meet all our expectations and more. Our suite was clean and comfortable, our hosts made us feel right at home. Breakfast was fine dining with a homespun flare. We enjoyed "wine... More

My wife and I didn't know anything about Galena's B&B scene, so I simply guessed at one that was close to downtown and I guessed right. The Farmer's Guest House is right on highway 20 and only a short walk to downtown, which is good during the St. Patrick's celebrations. Don and Susan are awesome hosts and owners and if... More

Farmers Guest House was the perfect place to stay in Galena. We enjoyed everything about our visit. The room was quiet and comfortable, everyone was accommodating, and the breakfast each morning was delicious. We especially enjoyed the locally-roasted coffee! We will absolutely stay there again the next time we are in Galena.

Thank you for your review. Nothing says morning like a good cup of coffee so from 6:30 a.m. - 11 a.m. we serve the finest locally roasted coffee. We are glad to hear you enjoyed it. Our roasted coffee is selected by us fresh each week and brewed fresh for you each morning. If you enjoy an afternoon or evening... More

If I could, I'd give it more than 5 stars. This was our first experience at a B&B and we could not have been happier with our choice. Don and Susan went beyond anything we could have imagined to make us feel welcomed. They made us feel like family. I am looking forward to our next visit to see them.... More

Enjoyed a fabulous time at Farmer's Guest House. Stayed in the "Mary" and our room was remarkably clean, quiet, and comfortable. Don and Susan were excellent hosts and very accommodating. Wine and cheese time was so much fun, and breakfast in the morning was the best breakfast we have ever had! Just a short walk from Main Street. Looking forward... More

We took advantage of the winter special to stay at Farmers Guest House. I have traveled extensively over the years and this inn was the BEST! We stayed for 3 nights and the hospitality of our inn keepers and staff was 5 STAR! Breakfast was a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic and the display and taste could rival a... More
