We stayed two nights at the Farmer's Guest House in Galena IL last weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The rooms are beautifully furnished with country-style beds and tables and feature flat-screen TVs with DVD players. This becomes important because the Farmer's Guest House offers a huge range of recent movies in a cabinet in the parlor that you can choose from, take to your room, and watch as a great way to unwind after a day of shopping in Galena. There is also an awesome selection of jazz CDs for the same purpose. If you'd prefer a larger venue, the parlor has a wide-screen TV that can also be used. Our room had a gas fireplace that was not only scenic, but also very effective in kicking out additional heat. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast featured a range of offerings, all of a very high quality. For example, on the last morning we had home made raisin bread, fruit in yoghurt, quiche, english muffins and bacon. The location is ideal - no need to fight the traffic in Galena for a (rare) parking space. The inn is within easy walking distance of the shopping area. Kathy and Jess were also the source of some great dining and entertainment recommendations. All in all, a great place to stay!
