My husband and I don't get time to ourselves often, so I was very careful to find a b&b that allowed us the chance to unwind. Farmers Guest House was the ideal place! First off, Don stayed up late for our arrival as we couldn't make it out until almost 11pm, which was so wonderful as we couldn't get there... More

We chose to celebrate our anniversary at Farmers Guest House and we were pleasantly surprised to find that not only did this B&B measure up to the previous guests' reviews, but it even surpassed them. The owners, Don and Susan, were very cordial at the outset---helping us with our luggage, giving us a tour of the beautiful but homey premises... More

We took a last minute overnight trip to Galena and were lucky enough to get a room at Farmers Guest House. The whole place was gorgeous the pictures online don't do it justice. I loved how guests had access to a refrigerator stocked with water and soda and tea,coffee and cookies at anytime of the day. They also do wine... More

Don, Susan and Charles. These are the names of the smiling faces who made my stay in Galena so memorable. Don and Susan, a dynamic duo, are the reason I am writing this review. They brought life to their inn by being both enjoyable company and providers of unvarnished thoughts about living in Galena. I am considering moving to the... More

This is an incredibly charming B&B and deserves all the 5 star reviews it has received! In fact, we picked it based on all the terrific reviews and we were not disappointed.

What a charming B&B! We had a wonderful weekend in the cottage and loved it. The staff was amazing and we LOVED the food. We will absolutely be back! It's a short walk into town, only a few minutes. There was always fresh cookies and evening wine. Great overall experience!
