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

We found this B&B randomly, on our recent road trip, by just driving past. It was only one block from the centre of the main street of Galena which was perfect for us. Not usually ones for lace, quilts and soft toys we nevertheless felt instantly comfortable in this house - and Lyn's unobtrusive approach as our host added to... 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

We stayed at the Brierwreath Manor on a lovely fall weekend. Our bedroom was actually a suite, with a bedroom, full bath, and sitting room. This was large for a B & B bedroom. The bed was very comfortable, the breakfasts each morning were delicious. Lyn, the hostess, chatted with her breadfast guests and created a warm and inviting atmosphere.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Brierwreath Manor for our anniversary weekend. The location of this B & B is absolutely perfect! It's only one block away from Galena's wonderful downtown area, but it's quiet and relaxing when you need a break from all the hustle and bustle on Main Street.
