This was our first time at Farmers Guest House and it was a memorable stay. Our room (Mary) was clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. FGH deserves their 2015 B&B Best Breakfast in North America Award! We truly enjoyed and looked forward to the delicious and outstanding breakfast each morning. Susan and Don made us feel very comfortable and at home... More

With my 40th birthday falling on a Saturday we knew we wanted to get away to celebrate. We had never stayed at the Farmer's Guest House before, but I had remembered the quaint look of the front facade, and was so happy to hear they had an available room. We loved the back patios, wine time, and our room, that... More

We stayed at the Farmers Guest House for two wonderful nights - July 24-26, 2015. The moment we walked through the door, we were greeted warmly by Susan and Don. They welcomed us with open arms and demonstrated that they were truly expecting our arrival - right down to how we like our meals prepared. Though the website that referred... More

We stayed in the Charlotte suite for 3 nights. Happened to take advantage of a deal they had - if you stay three nights that include a Tuesday, that Tuesday night is free. Nice! The breakfasts were amazing each morning - homemade, fresh, delicious. Cheese stuffed french toast with cherries, blueberry pancakes smothered in fresh blueberries and sauce....so good and... More

Our stay was brief, but very comfortable in a lovely room. The location was a short walk off of main street, so convenient for shopping and sightseeing. Having unlimited cookies and the wine time was definitely a wonderful perk. The breakfast was beautifully served and tasted amazing (the pecan coffee cake - awesome)!

My husband and I were looking for a B&B to stay at in Galena. We had never been to Galena before so we were not sure where to stay. We stayed at Susan and Don's place and thought it was wonderful. They are very good hosts and made it their goal to make us happy and comfortable in every way.... More

This was a trip away I planned for my sister and I. It was the first B&B I have stayed at and I am now hooked. We both didn't want to come home as we were spoiled being waited on by the wonderful people at Farmers Guest House. We had the Charlotte suite which is conveniently located on the first... More

Thank you for your review. I have copied it and sent it to Rebecca - she will be so pleased! I agree, it was great to have such a charming and cheerful helper here while Susan was out of town. And, yes, Charles is an amazing gardener which is why our lovely gardens are in such fine condition. We look... More

We opted to stay at Farmers Guest House primarily because it was located close enough to Main St that we could walk to all of the shops and restaurants downtown. That was an excellent decision in and of itself, but Farmers turned out to be even more of a gem than we could have anticipated. Don & Susan are the... More

Staying at Farmers Guest House was my husband and my first B&B experience, and we were expecting it to be a little odd for us, especially my husband who is quite the introvert. But it wasn't odd at all, quite the opposite. Susan and Don were so friendly and helpful, it probably wouldn't of been as nice of a trip... More

My husband and I enjoyed a weekend stay at Farmers Guest House on a recent trip to Galena, IL. Our room was lovely, with a really comfortable king-sized bed. We especially enjoyed Susan's amazing breakfasts! Don and Charles told us fun and historical facts too. All in all it was a delightful stay...thank you!
