The inn keepers are lovely, personable, and make sure we have a wonderful stay. Everything is very clean and they really make their B&B feels like home away from... More

The hospitality of the B & B owners was wonderful. Breakfast was always a diverse hearty meal. Dessert in the evening was good. The B&B was walking distance to downtown. Rooms were large with nice decor. Cons; loud train and traffic noise kept us up.

What can be said that hasn't already about this amazing bed and breakfast? It was the most superior stay of my life. Craig and Leslie have spoiled me so that I don't think I'd ever be satisfied with a hotel again! The location is less than 2 minutes away from downtown Galena. The house is picturesque and just so beautiful.... More

Quiet and serene place. Craig and Leslie were very friendly. We felt that our privacy was well respected. This is our first time in a bed and breakfast and we were a little unsure initially if we would be able to get the privacy we want. The stay in this house definitely put that at rest and we will be... More

The location is an easy walk to all the happenings of Galena's historic downtown. The house is very nice with ample room in the living room for visiting with other guests. The bed was a nice surprise. It was super comfortable! We stayed in the Lydia Rebecca room which is on the corner and offers three outside walls with windows.... More

Wow! Hands down this is the best B&B we have stayed at. Craig and Leslie make you feel like one of the family . Their place is beautifully decorated.
