This was the first time that we stayed at the Avery Guest House and I would definitely recommend it. Leslie and Craig were fantastic hosts and made us feel more than welcome. The breakfast was delicious and so was the company. Leslie had it beautifully decorated for the Christmas season. Our room and bed was very comfortable. My friend needed... More

The Avery Guest House was a very nice place to stay for me and my sister's girls get away weekend. We were celebrating my oldest sister getting married and this was a post celebration. This B&B was one of the few locations in Galena that could accommodate 3 adults. We stayed in their largest room which has it's own bathroom.... More

This was the first time I had stayed at a Bed & Breakfast in Galena, but it will definitely NOT be the last! The Avery Guest House was a wonderful experience, and I highly recommend them to everyone. Leslie and Craig were wonderful hosts, very friendly, helpful and interesting. We stayed for two nights, and each morning we were treated... More

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...

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.
