Absolutely loved it! Very nice welcome, super accommodating through-out our stay, food was delish, suite was exceptionally clean, and the location is very close to main street. So happy to have been there. I highly recommend it.

We stay here every year for a mom and daughters Christmas shopping weekend. It is perfect! The house is beautiful and immaculate. The rooms are great for the three of us. We stay in a suite which has a queen bed, twin bed and a very large bathroom. It is only one block from main street so we never have... More

We came to Brierwreath for our 25th anniversary. Serene, quiet and peaceful. Lovely accommodations and the nicest owners you will ever meet.Come stay - especially in fall when the leaves change colors. Just gorgeous!

Look no where else! This is the place to stay in beautiful Galena. We had the pleasure of staying at the Brierwreath Manor Bed and Breakfast at the end of September. The location is perfect, less than a block from the center of town. When we drove up, we immediately knew we were in for a special stay. Joe, who... More

We came to Brierwreath for a mom & daughters weekend and had a fabulous time. Joe met us at the door and gave us a quick tour and escorted us to our room which was spacious, yet comfy and cozy. We realized later that although there are three rooms in the inn, none are adjoining, so there are no common... More

Innkeepers Lyn and Mike really made us feel at home. Walking distance from downtown shops and restaurants.Good breakfast , super quiet rooms, separate sitting room and separate bathroom too ! Lyn has a great eye for knicknacks and decorating. Cute place!

We could not have been more pleased with our stay at this B&B. It was one block off of Main St, so a convenient walk to many attractions. They had off street parking, so we could leave our car in the driveway as we walked to all the fine restaurants and shopping in the area and never had to search... More

This was our first experience staying in a bed and breakfast and we were not disappointed! We loved the location of this house since we were only a downhill walk away from all the shops on Main St. in Galena. The owners, Lyn and Mike were friendly without hovering over us while we stayed in their home. The suite was... More

Having stayed with Mike & Lyn at the Brierwreath several times, I can personally attest to their consistently wonderful hospitality. I always come away from their home feeling as if I've just had a cozy visit to Grandma's house. During our stays, we've spent a summer's evening drinking lemonade on their front porch and curled up for a nap in... More
