Went to Farmers Guest House for an anniversary weekend as had a wonderful time. Susan, Don and Charlie were great hosts and everything (food, beds, rooms) was first class. Don helped us with insights on things to do and Susan gave us the best places to eat. Breakfast was a feast each morning and wine time was an opportunity to... More

We had the privilege of staying in Annie's cabin. It was so nicely decorated, clean, and very comfortable. Don, Susan, and Charles were very helpful and friendly. Susan's breakfasts are an amazing way to begin the day.

We love to visit Galena and The Farmers Guest House was a great place to stay. Don and Susan are wonderful hosts. Our room and the food were outstanding! We took advantage of the couples massage. Loved that we didn't have to leave the B&B. Highly recommend!

This is a lovely B and B with a short walk to the lo the quaint and historic downtown. Comfy beds, linens, and the host and hostess were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was made by one of the owners, known as the Breakfast Diva, and they were both delicious. Hope you all enjoy your stay as much as we did.

The bed was so comfy. The other guests staying were so nice too. We were supposed to have a romantic dinner for 2 on Friday night... More

My wife and I very much enjoyed this B&B! We've stayed at a number of B&B's in Galena and throughout the country as well - The Farmers Guest House easily ranks as one of the best we stayed at and looking forward to a return visit.

Everything was very nice at the Farmers Guest house. Susan's breakfasts were great. Very easy walk to downtown. It was enjoyable meeting other guests at wine time. I'm sure we will be back at the Farmers Guest House for our next visit to Galena.

This was our second visit to the Farmers Guest House. And this visit was just as delightful as our first. Susan, Don, and Charles are marvelous hosts. Susan's breakfasts are a true culinary experience. We enjoy getting to meet the other guests during the wine and cheese social hour. We stayed in the Charlotte Suite which is spacious and charming.... More

We had a great stay!! Breakfast was delicious and always looked amazing! Susan and Don make you feel like your family. Great location, walking distance to downtown Galena. All the rooms were recently remodeled and are beautiful. Each room has something special. We will definitely be back!!
