Had a wonderful visit to Tierra Linda over the weekend! The pond was so peaceful and beautiful. We slept for a few hours in two comfy hammocks under the shade of a glorious willow tree. I felt like i had visited a retreat with the therapy of nature and visits from herons and geese with spring frogs chirping! Armando is... More

Armando is a wonderful host and his property is beautiful. Our dog, Milo, had the best time of his life! He got to play with Nico and Michi all day, go on hikes, relax on a hammock and on grass, kayak with his dad and swim in the pond! And he was off leash most of the time which we... More

Armando just got two new puppies. He is committed to giving them a happy, loving home. In good weather, I'm sure this is a great place to vacation with your dog. We didn't get a chance to do the trails since it was slushy outside. We did have a good breakfast with generous portions.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing dogs not on leashes. My two dogs favorite place to do that is at Tierra Linda. They love the ponds, the trees, the birds, the wonderful smells and their Uncle Armando, the most generous and interesting person in Jo Daviess County. Galena may not have a dog park.... but it does have Tierra Linda,

We didn't really know what to expect when we made our reservation. Everything about our experience was a joy. Our dog is our traveling companion, and I think he was treated even better than we were! He was so welcome and comfortable that we left him there for the evening (with Armando) without a qualm. The room was clean and... More

My husband and I needed a weekend away from the city and wanted to bring the pup along. A quick search for dog-friendly B&B turned up this little gem. Armando has the cutest little farmhouse with a potbelly stove to keep you warm in the wintertime. I loved everything about this place and Armando is the friendliest, most hospitable host... More

We came here based on the idea that we like to travel with our dog. We were thrilled to find a place where dogs are welcomed rather than tolerated. Our dog enjoyed running the acres with Armando’s (the owner) dogs, and we liked watching her while we relaxed. Armando was a great host, our room was clean, and the property... More

Tierra Linda is truly a special place. This was our first trip to Galena and Armando, the owner, suggested activities and restaurants. He went above and beyond to ensure that all of our needs were met. The landscape of beautiful foliage, woods, ravines, barns and pond brought out the amateur photographer in us. Walter, our dog wrestled and ran with... More

Tierra Linda is THE place to get away from it all. Armando the owner has lovingly transformed the land into a lush landscape of beautiful flowers, trees, and a fabulous pond complete with a little island to swim over to. My dog Tally had a fabulous time off leash the entire 3 day stay, exploring the woods, swimming and lounging... More
