We spent two nights at Park Avenue. It is in a very nice location and it is possible to take a foot bridge to downtown Galena. The house, inside and out, was a charming example of an early 1900s home. The owner, Sharon, served two excellent breakfasts and provided detailed information about the home and its neighborhood. Would we stay... More

My husband and I once again enjoyed our stay at the Park Avenue Guest House. The home has a wealth of history. Our room was appointed with a comfy bed, beautiful linens and a private bath. A healthful breakfast was prepared and served by Sharon our host. We look forward to going back to Park Avenue this summer. The wrap... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Park Avenue Guest House twice now and have had a great experience each time. I was shocked to read the previous review since I feel the service is always excellent. The owner is lovely and has always been personable and extremely accommodating. The home is lovely and feel we were treated like... More

It was our 15th wedding anniversary. The owner was very rude and unfriendly and did not once give us a tour of the house asking questions was really uncomfortable. Also she had her cat drinking out of the sink on the counter of the kitchen when we were standing there. The last thing she wanted to make sure we paid... More

My wife and I chose Park Avenue Guest House for it's location. Located on a quiet residential street yet a mere 10 minute stroll to the north end of the main strip via the foot bridge over the Galena River and it's spill basin. This B&B is clean, beautiful, and Sharron, the owner treated us like family. Three very friendly... More

What a beautiful place. A tastefully restored and decorated Victorian home (kudos to people who preserve these priceless symbols of our past). And clean and with gracious friendly service and delicious hearty home cooked food -- the wonderful smells filled the house in the morning. With warmth and comfort and charm and grace due mostly to the personality of the... More

What a pleasant way to get away from it all. It's almost like being in another world. The house is gorgeous, spotless and oh so quiet! I wish we could have stayed longer. I hope to bring back some out-lf-town visitors soon!

Park Avenue Guest House is a charming B&B place. The house is located on a very quiet street, walking distance from a historic downtown of Galena. The house is a very well kept over a hundred years old mention surrounded by a beautiful garden. We found the perfect combination of tasteful antique interior and modern and very comfortable amenities. We... More
