I spend a few weekends in Galena every year and Abbeys is w/o a doubt my favorite place to stay. A beautiful walk away from downtown and always a pleasure to see the friendly hosts.Very clean and comfortable with a lot of history.

What an incredible time we had at Abbey's High Street B&B! It was like a step back in time with all of the modern conveniences. Kathleen and Tom are quintessential hosts. We wanted for nothing and they went out of their way to make us feel at home. Tom greeted us and showed us around the property. We stayed in... More

Wonderful, charming accomadations in the Garden View Room at Abbey's High Street Bed and Breakfast. Lovely lilacs and bees painted on the walls! Breakfast was delicious and keep us full until late afternoon! We really enjoyed walking in the gardens both in the morning and at night. Very short walk to Main Street. Burned lots of calories walking up and... More

Another writer and I spent three nights at Abbey's. We are working on novels and wanted to get away to write. We had a wonderful experience. I had the Elizabeth Room. It was perfect. The breakfasts were very good. Beds were very comfortable. No TVs in the private bedrooms, but there is a TV in the parlor. Actually it was... More

My husband and I booked the Thomas Room at Abbey's High Street Bed and Breakfast for a romantic weekend away. We have stayed at a variety of bed and breakfast inns over the years, including many in Galena. We have not had a bad experience in Galena, but this was one of the nicest times we have had. Abbey's High... More

This was our first B&B experience. It is a beautiful house and so was our room (Grant's Room). It has a jacuzzi tub, fireplace, private shower and a beautiful view of Grant Park. Tom was very friendly and breakfast was delicious. We will be back!!

My wife and I had always wanted to take a trip to galena. However, a bed and breakfast wasn't our first choice. We looked around and around and during their halloween parade weekend there was no vacancy in the whole town... We were finally lucky enough to call Abbey''s and get a place to stay. The trip was great we... More

We loved Abbey's! The double parlor with fireplace was charming and cozy and we found our room lovely and most comfortable. The home sits on top of a hill with a great view of the park and town below. There is a beautiful garden/yard with lots of places to sit and admire the pretty setting. But our favorite part was...

Over the past 22 years my wife and I have been to many B&B's in the Midwest and we believe that Abbeys High Street B&B ranks right up there with the best. This was our second stay at Abbey's and won't be our last. Abbey's is furnished/decorated to perfection. The location of Abbey's is in the center of town, great... More

I found Abbey's to be a very peaceful and relaxing "home away from home." My daughter and I stayed in the Garden View room. It had a fireplace, a great view of Grant's Park, and the bed was so comfy. We stayed two days and the breakfast was very good both days. The location was close enough to downtown to... More
