The room was absolutely lovely, beautifully appointed and with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Sandy and Charles were wonderful hosts, and the home-cooked breakfasts were delicious. Artistic touches were everywhere, from the table-settings to the tile in the shower. And it is so conveniently located, my husband and I hardly used our car through the whole... More

Abe’s is special lodging located just a few blocks from the historic district. It was the perfect spot for an overnight visit, but we would have loved to stay the entire weekend. We stayed in “Albert’s Glen” — the room named after the owners’ St. Bernard, whose likeness graces the spacious bathroom, while our son stayed in the other comfortable... More

Beautiful rooms! Excellent breakfast in the morning and fun conversation! My husband and I had an amazing time with another couple who stayed in the other room available. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud and the rooms had so much character. There was a spa and a hot tub. It is a historical and magical place and we... More

We booked a room here last moment not knowing what to expect since it was located on a very busy street . We were pleasantly surprised at how quiet our room actually was . The walls were so thick it blocked out practically all the street noise . Our room was on the first floor and had a private entrance... More

This is our third stay at Abe's Spring Street B and B. It won't be our last! We love the ambience and our hosts, Sandy and Charles, are most enjoyable. We especially enjoy Charles' artwork in the rooms as well as the gallery. There is nowhere else to stay in Galena as far as we are concerned!

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend at Abe's celebrating our anniversary. The room was just as pictured - impeccably neat and beautifully decorated with furniture and decor created by the artist-owner. A delicious hot breakfast was served each morning and included wonderful conversation with our host and the other guests. The guest house is surrounded by beautiful gardens... More

This guest house was a perfect location for Galena visitors. It is a short walk downtown (over a hill and down some stairs but short nevertheless), yet away from the crowds of the main streets. It was our first time to Galena and Sandy was an excellent source of info of what to do and where to go. There is... More

Sandy and Charles have created--tile by tile, painting by painting, root cellar to gorgeous bathroom, breakfast by marvelous breakfast--a real B&B masterpiece! we loved every minute of our stay. be sure to pay attention to all the tiny details of bronze work, wood work, ceramic work, and more.

Have been to Galena and enjoyed enough for another visit. Our first time, however, at Abe's Spring Street Guest House where we stayed in Rudolph's Retreat. Couldn't have asked for nicer host than Charles and Sandy. Thank you Sandy for the wonderful breakfast and thank you Charles for giving us a glimpse into your amazing talents. So enjoyed the history... More

What a great place to stay in Galena. My daughter and I took a belated birthday trip and stayed at Abe's Spring Street Guest House, and were very pleased with our accommodations. The suite was spacious and very clean, and had everything we needed. I couldn't get over how HIGH the bed was, I felt like Lily Tomlin dangling my... More
