I've visited Galena many times before but this was my first stay at the Farmers Guest House. but it definitely won't be the last time! We stayed in the Aimee room and loved the cozy fireplace. It was a cold March weekend and the room was just perfect! The breakfasts were absolutely AMAZING and delicious! My husband and I both... 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. Don & Susan are wonderful hosts who truly bend over backwards to make sure their guests have a special visit. We are gluten free, which at some places... More

We stayed in the Charlotte and had a wonderful experience! The breakfasts were divine, the room charming, and the fire place added that special touch. Not only would we return we booked the same suite for August.

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!

My husband and I decided to give Farmer's Guest House a try because of all the great reviews and certificate of excellence it had received. Our room was small, but I was forewarned since in the description it does say cozy. LOL It was quaint and very clean, and they had some nice towels and linens. But the bed and... More

I've stayed at a few Bed and Breakfasts in the area, but Susan and Don by far have me the best experience. The breakfast was phenomenal, the rooms were adorable and clean, and the owners are the sweetest people I've ever met.

I've stayed with Don and Susan several times and they are very hospitable and welcoming hosts. Farmers Guest House has a great mix of amenities, including a fine wine hour and proximity to downtown Galena (it's a five minute walk to Main Street with its restaurants and such. Along with very comfortable surroundings, I can also heartily recommend the fine... More

We spent three evenings in the cottage where we enjoyed quiet time just for the two of us. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of the fireplace, the hot tub and the king bed.
