My husband and I stumbled across this B&B after arriving to Galena for a last minute getaway! Between the quaint-ness, the history, the politeness & accommodations, we had a memorable stay and will plan to stay there again any time we venture to Galena!

My wife and I stayed in Alberts glen and it was great. The bathroom is amazing and the bed is very comfortable. Location is very close to downtown. We walked daily with ease, maybe 10 min walk at most. If you want privacy this is the place to stay. Sandy was an amazing host and took the time to get... More

We stayed overnight in Rudolph's Retreat and really enjoyed all the space. The breakfast was great. We liked being in walking distance of the downtown shops and restaurants. The only negative thing about this place is that it is located on a highway and the trucks going by were quite loud, but the building has very thick stone walls which... More

My girlfriend and I wanted to get away for a weekend trip for our one year anniversary, and after doing much research, I came across Abe's Spring Street Guest House. And boy am I glad I did - what a fantastic find! Sandy is such a gracious host and made a great breakfast for us both mornings. Don't be shy... More

This is a very nice guest house just a short walk from the main street activity. The suite we stayed in had a large bedroom with a king bed and a separate sitting room. The bed was very comfortable and the suite was equally inviting. The breakfast was outstanding and the host, Sandy, is a gem. Take time to explore... More

My husband and I fell in love with this guesthouse the minute we checked in with Sandy. The suite was everything that we thought it would be, all the comforts. Perfect location for us, not quite a 10 minute walk to downtown. Abe's is located in a lovely area. Sandy's breakfasts are delicious and leave you feeling full, all day.... More

The room was Big and very comfortable having a separate Parlor... More

My husband & I were in Albert's Glen & our dear friends were in Rudolph's Retreat. The accommodations are wonderful. The rooms are clean and inviting. Even the gardens exude positive energy. Our hosts, Sandy & Charles, were welcoming, friendly, and gracious. Sandy's breakfasts were superb. We will definitely stay here again.

Our suite was perfect. Albert's Retreat. What an incredibly, great memory to be had. It was like visiting a cottage located in an enchanted forest. The hubby loved it too and he is not cottage material at 6'2". Can only hope to visit again. The pictures are wonderful but in reality it is even better. The bathroom is spa like... More

We absolutely loved our stay here. We were in Rudolph's Retreat in early March and despite the cold weather, the temperature in the suite was perfect. We couldn't believe how nice the room was considering it's much less expensive than similar places in Galena. Also very easy to reserve a room online with prompt email correspondence from the owners.
