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.

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

Tom and Kathleen have a special place here! They take pride in their home, grounds, garden and guests. That is evident throughout the whole home! We had a nice birthday weekend for my mom here and we both enjoyed it. Tom and Kathleen have a nice treat in Galena for anyone looking forward to all the charm Galena has to... More

This is a beautifully restored 1850's red brick home that once belonged to President Grant's doctor. Grant's home (before the war) is just two doors to the west. Tom is a gracious host and gave us a quick tour upon our arrival including the beautiful parlor, dining room, reading nook (plenty of windows) and coffee bar. He performed much of... More

It's always a pleasure to stay at Abbey's High Street B&B! The rooms are wonderful, the breakfast is generous and delicious, and the location is perfect. The history of this B&B is really important to us, because it's the former home of my husbands great, great, great Grandfather. The owners are kind and welcoming, and are filled with history that...

Wonderful weekend getaway at this charming and cozy spot. Great prices, great views, beautiful accommodations, and a great host! The breakfast was amazing and the 24/7 coffee bar was a nice touch. We are looking forward to returning to this great spot on our next getaway! Thank you so much!
