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

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

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
