As we pulled into the parking lot across the street and took a look at the Farmer Guest House, both my wife and I had a great feeling about our decision to stay here, and we couldn't have been more right. I turned the historic door handle and opened the door to be greeted by a huge smile and welcome... More

I've never written a review for an inn before, but FGH deserves my attention. My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this very pleasant and quaint B&B. The owners, Sue and Don, are as gracious as anyone can be. The breakfasts -- plated, not buffet -- are gourmet. Sue is a fantastic cook. 5PM is wine and cheese... More

My husband and I came to Farmer's for our first time based on so many great online reviews. We were celebrating our 5 Year Anniversary and had never been to Galena. We enjoyed the kind owners, yummy breakfast, bottomless coffee and cookies, and quick access to the amazing downtown. Care was taken to ensure that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.... More

We just returned home after spending a wonderful three days at Farmers' Guest House. The rooms are quaint and comfortable with all the little extras to make you feel pampered--free wifi, wonderful linens, updated bathrooms. The food is gourmet quality--homemade and delicious. There are even fresh baked cookies in the cookie jar in the dining room. Susan and Don help... More

Don and Sue have perfected the B&B experience. I would recommend every B&B owner stay a night at Farmers' Guest House and see professionalism with the personal touch at its finest. We were charmed by our host and hostess and simply delighted in the extra comforts provided. We immediately felt at home. In the dining area, unlimited bottled waters, soft... More

This is a great place to stay. It is very clean and well-managed. Wish I was as good in the kitchen as Susan. Her breakfast was delicious! At about 5 o’clock Don and Susan (Innkeepers) host Wine Time. That was a real plus. We met here with two other couples so this was a good time to catch up on... More

We stayed in the Charlotte suite which felt just like home. Very comfortable and convenient. Susan, Don and Charles take great care of their guests and made us feel very welcome. A very beautiful inn, with a great breakfast each morning, nice patio in the back for a glass of wine under the stars. We highly recommend Farmers' Guest House!... More

We stayed at FGH on our way to a wedding in Milwaukee. We found it to be a charming, comfortable B&B. Susan and Don are friendly, knowledgeable hosts who take their guest's needs seriously. Our room (Malvina) looked out into the lovely gardens, and had all the amenities we expected. We loved "wine time"-a great opportunity to chat with fellow... More

We stayed at this wonderful Bed and Breakfast during our first trip ever to Galena. We traveled to the area on our Harley Davidson, and found plentiful and safe parking for the motorcycle just across the street from the Farmers Guest House. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the overall vibe of this property is very inviting. We... More
