What an amazing experience! We could not believe how clean everything was and felt 100% safe staying here during Covid-19. We were very discouraged after leaving our cabin we rented in Eagle Ridge the two nights before but when we got to Greenbriar and saw their Covid precautions and were so relieved. The owners were so kind, attentive, and caring. We will definitely be staying here again!

The staff was frinedly, kind, knowledgable, and extremely helpful! I appreciated the covid protocols and precautions very much! We stayed in the margery luxury suite. The room was large and comfortable and the fireplace was great! Breakfast was muffins, fruit, coffee, and juice. It was delicious and filling! Great location or walking into town or driving and parking. Would definintly reccomend and WILL be staying here again in the summer!

So impeccably clean! Such attention to detail! It's hard to find anything to do that feels safe and comfortable during this Covid-19 pandemic, but Bill and Barb gave us an incredible gift -- the gift of a safe, clean, romantic weekend getaway for an unbelievable price. We stayed in the Gabrielle room (standard room) which features a gas fireplace. My wife is the kind who usually wipes down every surface the moment we enter a hotel room, but she didn't this time -- because it was clear how well this place is taken care of. When we arrived at the Greenbriar, we found our way to the office where Bill and Barb have set up a special sitting room in a screened porch for check-in, which included some great local tips from Bill. I have to admit it was a bit chilly sitting in what is essentially an outdoor all season room, but you can tell the lengths these hosts are going to put safety first by not having guests come inside the office. Once we were all set, Bill walked us over to the building where we were staying, which is technically classified as a small "inn," but with a bed and breakfast feel. Lucky for us (and sadly for our hosts), the only other guests scheduled this weekend canceled, meaning we literally had the place to ourselves! We enjoyed some hot cocoa (available 24/7) in the kitchen and read a Galena magazine in the sitting room before retiring to our bedroom for the night (which had its own private entrance - a bonus when other guests are around). In the morning, Barb brought over a lovely breakfast basket with fruit, warm muffins, banana bread and juice (all made to order). The location is excellent, walking distance from Galena's famous shops, though we did drive and park downtown since it was in the 30s out. This was our fourth time to Galena (we were engaged here in 2016), but our first at Greenbriar Inn and Suites. We've enjoyed every place we've stayed and this was no exception! What we got for the price made this one of our favorite weekend getaways yet.

Stayed here back in September for a weekend getaway. I have been to Galena several times, but this was my favorite stay! The owners were so nice and took great precautions with the pandemic. I am still thinking about the delicious breakfast and cant wait to come back! Thank you!

The couple managing the Inn are so kind, witty, and accommodating. The woman gave excellent directions over the phone, so it was easy to find. They both took precautions to socially distance themselves while checking in and conversating in the yard. The Inn is within walking distance of downtown Galena, so we didn't have the parking issues that some visitors had and we were able to bring our packages back to the car without much effort. We enjoyed the outside deck area off of the suites. We sat and watched the sun rise with a cup of coffee, enjoyed the sunshine in the afternoon, and pizza & wine in the evening. Our only suggestion would be a small fire pit, or gas fire place on the deck, for the evenings. The windows on the West side didn't open and close properly, so it got a bit stuffy in the room, just before sunset, but was not a huge issue. Otherwise the room was clean, well stocked, decorated nicely, and everything we needed for the weekend. We did not partake in the continental breakfast that was offered, so no comment on that. We are already planning a return trip, next year.
