A great find close to the main drag in Galena with historic charm and unexpected amenities. Bob and Sue are the most gracious hosts. We did not know Sue's celebrity status from the Food Network, and the breakfast sure confirmed it! Also don't miss the 5:00 wine time, another fun surprise. Room was comfortable. Parking a breeze. Highly recommend!

This B&B was booked when I was planning our travels so we didn't have the opportunity to stay here, BUT we did stop by to check it out. We were welcomed by Don who invited us to check out the living room and dining area. A unique home with decor of classic shows/movies to play games in, and a dining... More

Don and Susan set the bar so high for an amazing bed and breakfast opportunity. Not only is their property meticulously clean and decorated beautifully, they are also located just off of Main St. with extremely easy access to the shops and tourist attractions. Don and Susan were kind to us even before we arrived, helping us over the phone... More

We returned to Farmers Guest House after visiting last year. The hosts remain the best reason to visi. However, we experienced a leaky faucet and a way too soft mattress. The breakfast was delicious and service outstanding. I downgraded my rating, but I am sure that the issues will be fixed.

My wife and I stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary. The guest house is beautiful and comfortable. We had a large room at the front of the building and it was very well appointed and comfortable. The owners were very nice and accommodating and the breakfast was excellent. I would recommend this place for the Galena area if you... More

I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive as I had never staying in a B and B before. All that went out the window the minute we walked in, greeted by Don, checked in and shown to our rooms, cuter than cute accommodations, we stayed in the Elizabeth room, room looks exactly like the website picture, the bed...

This was my first time going to a B&B. The experience was wonderful. I would suggest staying here. The rooms are great and the food was outstanding. Wine time is a great treat. The endless cookie jar is also a great extra. Susan and her husband make you feel like your family. Come stay with them you will not be... More

My husband and I stayed at the Farmers Guest House from Wednesday through Saturday (3 nights) in the Galena Cottage suite. It's a 5 minute walk to Main Street in Galena and has great (free) parking.
