This is our fourth fall in Galena and every year we try a new place to stay. Galena has many options for lodging, and overall we were happy with the warm hospitality and accommodations at Brierwreath. Location-wise, you can't beat the b&b's location right off of the main street. Makes for a very pleasant couple block walk to shopping, food,... More

We stayed there this week. Was our first trip this Galena. Great location, only a block away from all the shops on main street. You can park at the manor and walk down to the shops and restaurants! The rooms are all very nice and comfortable. The breakfast food is delicious and the manors owner Joe is very accommodating and... More

The surroundings are lovely and comfortable, spotless, the company excellent, the breakfasts are delicious, the location perfect, parking is present, the owners are like family _"The Kids are here!" - they always greet us, coffee water and juice outside the room. Perfect place to stay to explore Galena.

My husband and I stayed in the Heirloom Suite last week. It was a huge suite with all the little touches that made our stay perfect. We had a jar of cookies waiting for us every evening after a long day sightseeing and golfing. Early every morning, Joe had coffee and water available outside the guest suites so we could... More

My husband and I spent the weekend visiting family and the charming town Galena in the comforts of the Brierwreath Manor. We stayed in the Country Charm Suite decorated in red, white, and blue, so it was ideal for the July 4th weekend. With a separate sitting room next to the bedroom, I could savor my morning coffee from the... More

My girlfriend and I decided to take a last minute long July 4th weekend getaway in Galena and were very fortunate that Brierwreath Manor B & B had the "Mayor's Room" available for two nights. Joe made sure from the time we checked in to the time we left we were well taken care of. Clean comfortable room, delicious breakfasts,... More

This was our first visit to Galena and Brierwreath proved to be an excellent choice for our accommodations. A number of the Galena B&Bs advertise themselves as conveniently located but we found this to be somewhat exaggerated for most of them. Not so Brierwreath, which is literally a two-block walk to just about anything in the town center. Joe, our... More
