This was my first ever stay at a B&B. I booked Abe's based on recommendations from the internet and I could not be more pleased. I took my girlfriend for a weekend getaway. We stayed in Rudolph's Retreat. The room was spacious and immaculately clean. Sandy and Charles were extremely inviting and knowledgeable of the area and attractions we could... More

We couldn't have had a more enjoyable stay at Abe's Spring Street! Sandy was very warm and welcoming and tended to our every need! We stayed in Albert's Glen and it was very cozy and spacious! We had our own entrance, kitchen (with refrigerator, microwave, dining table, coffee maker and grinder), large spacious bedroom with seating area, tv, fireplace, and... More

She also made 2 EXCELLENT breakfasts (very filling) in the morning for us as well. She was so nice! We stayed... More

This was our first time in a b&b and we loved it! The room was incredibly unique, with many of the elements and art created by the host Charles. Our other host Sandy made a fantastic breakfast, and we enjoyed the conversation and information she provided. Easy walk to town and shops. Loved the fireplace in the room. We plan... More

We spent a Saturday night in a room here and due to the large size of the room and the coziness we ended up not leaving the room in the evening and staying in. We are big animal people and were blown away by the custom dog tiles and dog sculptures throughout the room. Great breakfast and conversation with the... More

We just spent 2 nights in the Albert's Glen suite. Amazing! The room was clean, quiet, spacious, and charming. The Wi-Fi speeds were good and we enjoyed the fireplace. Sandy and Charles were great hosts, friendly and knowledgeable -- and made us wonderful homemade breakfasts! We also enjoyed the indoor hot tub and sauna. Conveniently located to walk or drive...

We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend... More

My wife and I recently had a great winter weekend at Abe's. We stayed in Albert's Glenn and we simply can't say enough about our beautiful spacious room(s). From the bronze sculptures adorning our bed, to the handmade tiles, to the cozy fireplace and outstanding breakfasts served by our host Sandy, the weekend was perfect. We will definitely stay again... More

We recently spent 2 nights at this property. Since it has only 2 rooms, it is perfect for privacy and relaxation, The room was comfortable, charming, and quiet. The location to downtown is perfect. The breakfast was excellent and Sandy was delightful. We will definitely stay again.

We visited Galena with another couple and decided to check out Abe's. We were especially impressed with Albert's Glen, which has a kitchen and one of the most unique bathrooms I've ever seen. Many elements of the interior were made by Charles, the artist who owns the pottery studio next door. Not only did he restore the inside of the... More
