My wife and I stayed at the Hucleberry during Halloween of 2008 and it was one of the most relaxing and fabulous stays. The owners were awesome, the accommodations were great and because of our stay here, we had one of our best vacations ever. I can't wait to go back and suggest this place to anyone looking for a...

Please do your homework and examine your expectations before booking a stay at the Huckleberry Inn. Our trip was a gift, so we had little say in the matter. If you want attention to detail, squeaky clean accommodations, great food and plush towels, this is definitely NOT the place for you. If you just need a place to plop down... More

I must say I’m stumped by this review. Partly because it isn’t very specific but mostly because the writer managed to insult the person who graciously purchased the gift certificate, our previous guests, myself, my husband and the people at Tripadvisor all in a few lines of text. Even threw in a backhanded compliment for balance. I’m just glad she’s... More

I found the Huckleberry Inn through their website, and instantly knew this would be the perfect place to stay with my 3 girlfriends. I was right. We had the most wonderful time in Galena last weekend. We shopped, ate, went on a Ghost Tour, ate, Went in a Hot Air Balloon ride, ate again... you get the picture! The B... More

You don't have to enjoy literature to like The Huckleberry Inn, but readers will love the collection of books in the guest rooms and common areas. Jim's Room is much more spacious than I expected, and the private bathroom has extras you don't find at many B&B's, such as shower gel. The huge breakfast was delicious (try the sweet cherry...

We loved the Huckleberry Inn!! We had a wonderful and relaxing time and Barb and Geo were excellent owners. The bedrooms are beautiful and very comfortable. Barb and Geo were very, very nice and willing to do anything for us. We are going to stay there once a year because we loved it so much! We highly recommend everyone pay... More

We booked our stay through word of mouth last year and just recently came back from another weekend. We vowed we would go every year if not more from then on. Friends of ours had recently stayed there and just couldn't say enough about the hospitality of George & Barbra and the quaintness of it all. I vowed every time... More

Our weekend at the Inn was very disappointing. We knew we were in trouble when we asked for forks the first night since we were having pizza delivered and they told us no, to use out fingers. We did ask about ice that night, even though we knew they had no ice machine per their web site, we were hoping... More

First, the pizza comment was a joke. I mean, it was pizza. But I quickly learned that these were not the type of people to joke with. What I did suggest is that they request to-go utensils when they ordered, because it was evening time and we were headed out. I wouldn't have time to wash 10 sets of forks... More

We have visited other bed and breakfasts in the Galena Area and The Huckleberry Inn is by far the best bed and breakfast in town. The rooms were absolutely wonderful. The sheets and beds were soft and deliciously clean. Barb and George the owners were wonderful hosts and anticipated every need. I will always stay at The Huckleberry Inn whenever... More

I was in the group of ten that the review before mine mentioned. All I really have to say is that the people that own this place seem to have multiple personalities. They would be nice to us in one interaction, they would leave the room and come back and treat us badly. They called us liars whenever we asked... More

I would like to point out that the negative comments are all from the same party. I have already explained myself in other responses. As for this review, it is so completely ridiculous that I am loath to merit it with a response. But I suppose I should. Not one word of this is true. Well, I suppose the “laughing... More

I have never been so pleased with a Bed & Breakfast in all of my travels! The Huckleberry Inn itself is absolutely lovely and adorable! Unique and comfortable.
