This was our second visit to here, having stayed here last year during their Octoberfest celebration... That should tell you all you need to know about what we think. Wonderful home and owners, spacious rooms and wonderfully made from scratch breakfasts. There are also plenty of porches and verandas to sit on and enjoy the property and a drink. The best part is it is located at the foot of Rte. 20 and the Galena River so its easy walking distance to downtown. Great experience

My husband and I truly loved being guests at Annie Wiggins Guest house. Wendy is a wonderful cook. Breakfasts were wonderful! The room and house is decorated very nice. We would definitely stay there again.

I have been to Annie Wiggins before. Wendy, the owner, is a fine host. The house was built before the Civil War , was restored and a very pleasant walk back in time. Convenient to Main street. I always meet great people there, the rooms are clean and well appointed, breakfast is great. There is a sitting porch on each level and a great garden. I was up early each morning, Wendy had coffee ready and I sat on the porch taking in the sun. A wonderful get away.

Our first visit to a B n B in Galena was a pleasant, relaxing, and rewarding experience. The cooly dark interiors made a dramatic contrast to the bright and sunny gardens outdoors. The antique furniture, the old books, and the vintage portraits offer practically every surface as an object of curiosity and scrutiny. Hostess Wendy's culinary skill and charm and knowledge made her wonderful breakfasts a friendly and engaging course in the history of the 1842 house, its historic neighborhood, and the facts of Galena. Breakfast on our last morning was so comfortable that everyone sat around chatting for two hours.The house and its owners were more than equal charms to the appeal of this historic old town.

I was not sure what to expect from Galena, other than wanting to spend a special birthday evening with family. The guest house set the expectations, with the beautiful majestic entrance, the incredible interior, the magical back porch and garden and the WOW factor of attention to detail. The gracious host, Wendy makes you feel like and old friend. The glamorous settings and the incredibly served, delicious breakfast just left us at awe and with plans to return here, one day.
