Had two wonderful nights at this lovely B & B. Wonderful room, food, and people. Hope we can go back again. Also there were quite a few couples there that return every year so you know that that shows how nice the place is.

The staff here is amazing. Place very clean. They were able to recommend various shops and restaurants for us to visit while in Galena. The location is great only walking distance from all the shops and restaurants. We were very impressed with our stay

We had heard about the Log Cabin restaurant from the Public TV show Check Please and after making reservations they recommended the Farmers' Guest House. Great Recommendation! We had not been to Galena in about 15 years and being a gray rainy day in Chicago made the 3 hour drive. We lucked into being there for the Twenty Dirty Hands... More

Words can't describe the very welcoming, comfortable, and fun experience of the Farmer's GuestHouse. I stay there whenever on business in the area, and Don and Susan have become great friends; caring, genuine, and down to earth, fun folks who appreciate everything they have, and all of the new people that come into their lives each day. Susan's breakfast is... More

It was our first trip to Galena, and we had the best experience at the Farmer's Guest House! It was perfect! We stayed in "Elizabeth" and our daughter and son-in-law stayed across the hall! Susan and Don are very gracious hosts as they had many suggestions for our stay, and even made us dinner reservations at "Fried Green Tomatoes", which... More

My wife and I stayed here in early June (2014) in Annie's Galena Cottage Suite. This particular site is very nice and relatively modern (not a bad thing at all, unless you're specifically looking for a period room). Susan and Don were wonderful hosts, and their hospitality is demonstrated by their willingness to accommodate all kinds of special dietary needs.... More

Due to a change in plans we decided to make a last minute getaway to Galena and booked two nights at Farmer's Guest House. The minute we walked through the door Susan and Don made us feel like family coming for a visit. Our room (Aimee) was comfortable and cozy. The evening wine time was an excellent touch, as it...

My husband and I came here for a quick getaway after our wedding. This was our first stay in a bed and breakfast, so I was not sure what to expect, but I was definitely pleased with our visit! Our room was right off the top of the stairs (we stayed in "Mary"), which was concerning, but we didn't really... More

What a wonderful, first time, experience at a B & B. After celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary in Aug we finally got a chance to escape our usual routines for a couple of days. Our children gave us a gift card for our stay for our anniversary and what a wonderful relaxing time we had. It seemed like we were... More

My mom and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Farmer's Guest House B&B. We were greeted by Susan and Don who obviously enjoy what they do! From carrying our bags in, to the very last hug goodbye, we had such a great time here as mom and daughter. Susan went above and beyond when my mom and I started... More

Thank you for your review. Cleanliness is probably the most important aspect of a guest room and we thank you for your specific comments on the cleanliness of our rooms. Our housekeeper, Charles, takes great pride in his work, and, after 15 years here, he knows exactly what needs to be done to have our rooms perfect for our guests.... More
