This is a great place to stay. Don and Susan made us fell right at home. My sister and wife took Susan's cooking class or I mean "Breakfast Diva", They want to come back just to take the cooking class and the great breakfasts we had. This is a must stay if you are in Galena.

My wife chose the Farmer's Guest House for an anniversary getaway. Booking via the internet was easy. About a week prior to our arrival we received a reminder email with some helpful hints, especially about the restaurants that they recommend and those that require reservations. Susan and Don greeted us upon our arrival and Don showed us to our room... More

Susanne, Don and George were amazing!!! This B&B was beautifully kept, like home (but better). They have the best atmosphere to get to know people, the town and still have your privacy. Breakfast Diva was the best.... we will definitely be back and recommending to everyone!!!!! Thank you for such a wonderful stay ♡ Crystal & Don B.

A stay at the Farmers Guest House is exactly what the bed-and-breakfast experience should be. Susan was so welcoming and helpful that you immediately felt like you were family (except you didn’t have to do the dishes!). The guest house is in easy walking distance of downtown Galena, so we almost never moved our car out of the large parking... More

This bed and breakfast was everything you could ask for. The food was outstanding. Susan and Don were attentive to everyone's needs. The rooms were very cozy and comfortable. The location is close to shopping and the attractions.

My mother recently turned 90 and we chose to celebrate the occasion over the Labor Day weekend at the Farmers Guest House. And were we ever glad we did. There were ten of us staying in five different rooms all of which were comfortable and pleasing to the eye. Susan and Don made arrangements for two different dinners at two... More

Thank you for your review and for trusting us with your family's 90th birthday party! Our convenient location to downtown is a real plus - there is so much to see and do within just a few blocks of the inn.

We enjoyed an overnight stay at The Farmers Guest House. Excellent accommodations with very friendly, gracious owners! Enjoyed the wine hour and meeting new friends and then a fabulous breakfast in the morning! We learned that the owner Susan, also has a Cooking School so we quickly signed up for class later in the morning. What a fun getaway we... More
