The accommodations were wonderful. The food was excellent and our hosts were superb. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable my wife and I have ever encountered on a trip. The breakfasts were delicious. I would highly recommend it to anyone and would certainly stay there again.

What an excellent experience! We stayed in the Julia suite. This spacious suite has a little sitting room, large bathroom with a whirlpool tub/shower and bedroom big enough to hold a couch, King sized bed winged back chair and a fireplace. We have done a lot of traveling and this was one of the most comfortable beds and pillows we... More

Been to Galena many times, several B&B's. Farmers Guest House the best! Susan Steffan great hostess, not to mention the fact she appeared on Food Network Holiday Baking Show! Great company, she was very accommodating as far as what we wanted for breakfast. Unlike most bed and breakfasts. We were so interested in her stories of the popular show, and... More

This B&B was so quaint! Five star hospitality & accommodations. The rooms were very clean & modern. The food was outstanding! Our hostess Susan was such a pleasure to meet. She went above & beyond to make sure all our needs were met. Aside from being very accommodating, Susan was a great conversationalist. She told us all about her adventures... More

From the moment we walked in, we felt extremely comfortable and were treated like family by Don and Susan! Our room was amazing; very clean and incredibly cozy. The breakfast was out of this world... We never expected everything to... More

My husband and I along with our Best Friends went to Galena in December of 2015 and stayed at our favorite B & B, the Farmer's Guest House. We stayed in the Melvina room once again.

Thank you for your review and for your repeat business. It is such a pleasure to see guests return year after year. All our rooms are named after the wives of the 9 Civil War Generals who lived in Galena; hence the name Malvina, after General Jasper Maltby's wife. We look forward to seeing you again later this year. Many... More

Stayed at the Guest house and took the cooking class. We had a chance to experience a few things "hands on" and pass the apron. Everyone who took the class seemed to enjoy it. I learned some good tips that I will apply to my own cooking. The food was great! Enjoyed exploring the town (I walked) and coming back... More
