Stayed here for a very relaxing 2 day weekend. Our room was huge and so comfortable. Enjoyed the fire place and the cozy couch for lounging in our room. Breakfast was served downstairs in the dining room (there were tables for 2, 4 or larger parties so no need to socialize with other guests if that's not your thing). Both...

I've been to Galena a few times and this has by far been the best place we've stayed. From this point on, this is where we'll stay each time we know we want to visit Galena. Susan and Don are the nicest people. They made sure we had everything we needed. Very accommodating. The room was better than I was...

The food by Susan was delicious, beautiful and like a picture. After all, she is an award winning cook!! The atmosphere was cozy and Galena is a sweet little town filled with small shops. We can't wait to return 💌 Gene and Nellie Wineland spent Thanksgiving (Wed to Sat)

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at the Aimee room at the Farmers Guest House Bed and Breakfast in Galena, IL. The B&B owners were warm, welcoming, and very accommodating. A homemade, delicious hearty breakfast was truly the highlight of every day in Galena. We truly felt at home during our stay at this B&B, and plan on returning...

We had an absolutely fabulous time!! We went there for our 11th Anniversary, and Susan and Don were so accommodating and welcoming! We booked the Charlotte Room, and it had a separate sitting room with a Jacuzzi tub and a separate private entrance. There was a complimentary wine hour at 5PM. Everything was wonderful! We would definitely return!

We had a great time at Farmer's Guest House. Don and Susan were so welcoming and very helpful. Nothing is overlooked in this b&b. Susan was very accommodating for our vegetarian and lactose intolerant needs. The food was wonderful. We also booked the couples massage, which was located right down from our room- Melvina. Very relaxing time for my husband...

My husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with a stay at the Farmers' Guest House in Galena and it was wonderful. Don and Susan were wonderful hosts, making us feel at home, making dinner and tour reservations, arranging for an on-site massage, and giving us great advice on things to do. Susan's gourmet breakfasts were "to die for"...

First time visiting a bed and breakfast and we were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful experience. Susan and Don made us feel very comfortable and their hospitality was top notch. The rooms were relaxing and comfortable and Susan's delicious breakfast did not disappoint!! We would highly recommend a stay here. It's close to everything.

This is our second visit to the Farmers Guest House, and the first time under the ownership of Don and Susan. We stayed in the beautiful and very comfortable Julia Suite. We had an absolutely fantastic time and Don and Susan could not have been more helpful, friendly, and fun. The Farmers is really two things in one: an intimate...
