We stayed at this B&B during the Memorial Day weekend. The location is perfect, 5 min walk to the best restaurants in town. The house is on a quiet street and traffic noise is non-existent, and there is plenty of free parking in front of the house. The house is very well maintained, the hosts, Craig and Leslie, are very... More

Instead of always seeing Galena in October, I decided to try it for NYE. The one constant that remained?....Avery Guest House! Craig and Leslie are such friendly warm people who always make us feel right at home. But, what also can't be beat is the location! Right down the street from downtown Galena! After a relaxing dinner with drinks there... More

We really enjoyed our second visit to Avery and enjoyed Leslie and Craig's hospitality. The house is tastefully set for the Christmas season already - beautiful trees throughout the house. Breakfast of french toast, bacon and eggs. Yummers. See you again soon!

Leslie and Craig are wonderful hosts. They take the time to answer questions and see that their guests love the Galena area as much as they do. Tasty breakfasts and the evening treat is a nice extra. Most of all, I think there proximal location to downtown (without climbing stairs) is an added perk.

A two minute walk from Main Street, Galena. Such a great little town and a very sweet b&b. Lovely hosts, great breakfast and cute rooms. The hosts even leave out an evening dessert, which was most appreciated! Our room was a little warm with just the fan, but we just opened the window and then were completely fine. Would stay... More

This was our first stay in Galena and were very pleased to find Avery Guest House B&B. Craig and Leslie are very kind and friendly. The entire place is immaculately kept, no dust (no allergy problems). Breakfast was delicious and the conversation with our fellow guests was enjoyable. We plan to stay again.

front the back porch and gazebo. Wonderful place to stay; the hosts, Leslie and Craig are wonderfully gracious innkeepers - hospitality reigns here. Stories and bits of facts were shared among the hosts and guests during the delicious breakfast; each of us was made to feel like their family. The second floor rooms were comfy and decorated to go with... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Avery Guest House! It was a short walk to Main Street, which was very convenient. It is tucked away in the trees, so even though you are close to Main Street, it still feels secluded. The house itself is very nice and tastefully decorated. All of the guest rooms are on the second... More

I'm here right now at the Avery Guest House and don't want to leave my beautiful and comfy room, even to get the yummy and full cooked breakfast.  The love and care in every detail show in every aspect of this home.    Small details such as the tv/DVD in the room, central air plus individual AC in each room...
