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. The breakfast is amazing and in the evenings they place dessert out. We missed it the first night but the second night we made sure to indulge in the upside down... More

This was our first time at a bed and breakfast and this will not be our last! Our hosts were incredible. The food was amazing. Rooms were clean and comfortable! They even left desert out for us in the evening! Can't wait to book our next visit.

We had the opportunity to stay at the Avery Guest House for the Ladies Getaway Weekend September 11-13. The innkeepers were fantastic, the B & B is within walking distance of the town and Craig even carried some of our purchases back from Quartermania,so we could continue our festivities! The house is amazing and gave us opportunities for photos and... More

My partner had never stayed in a B&B, so I arranged the 3 for 3 package through the innkeeper at The Steamboat House, a B&B directly across the street from the Avery. She set up our three night mid-week Galena stay for one night each at three different B&Bs. The Avery was our home-away-from-home for our first night, which was... More
