We stayed at the Farmer's Guest House Inn for two nights. This was probably our sixth visit and we have booked already for our next stay. Susan and Don go out of their way to make sure you have a good time and are comfortable. They will take the time to know you and your interests and suggest different places... More

We stayed at the Farmer's Guest House for two nights and had a fantastic stay. Susan and Don are the best! We had such a great trip and Susan is a great resource on the Galena area. The breakfast is amazing so don't sleep in and miss that. They also have a wine time at 5:00, as well as freshly... More

My girlfriend and I stayed two nights at Farmers' Guest House during a weekend getaway in Galena. Susan and Don were so nice and helpful during our stay. They go out of their way to accommodate any special needs and requests. We hadn't read many reviews beforehand, so the quality of the breakfast was a total surprise. Wow, it was... More

We stayed at the Farmer's Guest House for two nights and had a fantastic stay. The owners are extremely friendly and hospitable and are a wealth of information on everything from dinner reservations to things to do in the area. Susan recommended a great antique mall in a nearby town which we never would have known about had we not... More

My wife and I spent two days here. Our hosts were welcoming, warm and genuine. The hotel is a gem along the Stagecoach Trail and it communicates authenticity while providing the modern creature comforts we depend on. Everything was clean and comfortable. Our room, while small, was very welcoming, quiet and cozy. Decorations everywhere are thoughtfully chosen and placed. Breakfast... More

We enjoyed are stay at the Farmer's Guest House and are looking forward to a third trip to this area in the future. The innkeepers, Susan and Don, focus completely on their guest having a wonderful experience from the delicious breakfast every morning to "wine time" every evening. The surrounding Galena area is beautiful with lots of things to do... More

Our children give us a gift certificate to the Inn almost a year ago. Knowing us as work alcoholics they probably weren't sure we would use it- with summer almost over, they'd be right. So on a quick impulse I talked on Monday for a Thursday stay. Susan explained that all the rooms were booked except the suite or the... More

My husband and I decided we needed to get away at the last minute. Since we are only about an hour away from Galena we figured that would be our best bet. Luckily for us we picked the Farmers Guest House. Susan and Don are more than accommodating and very down to earth-yet professional. Just read all the other reviews,... More

Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure having you and your husband here for the weekend and then extra special to enjoy the retreat with you and the other friendly ladies who came for a few days of relaxing and working on their craft. I look forward to seeing you again in March. In stitches, Susan More
