My husband and I love coming to Galena for weekend getaways at least a couple times a year. We have stayed in several hotels in Galena and a few Bed & Breakfast's in Iowa. We wanted to try a B&B in Galena, but found that most were out of our price range and did not have king size beds. My... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Abe's Spring Street Guest House last week and cannot say enough good things about our experience! The innkeepers were amazing and the story of their B&B is really fun! Tons of history, not only related to the buildings, but also to how they resurrected this beautiful property. The breakfasts were delicious and... More

Spent one night at Abe's Spring Guest House in the smaller suite. The suite was perfect with a big comfortable bed, a nice sitting room, and luxurious bathroom. The guest house is within walking distance of downtown Galena so you can't beat the location and the price was reasonable. The breakfast was wonderful, and our host couldn't have been nicer....

I have stayed at several B & Bs and Abe's is by far the best I at which I've ever stayed. The building is historic and beautiful. The walls are very thick, so being on Rt. 20 is never a problem; we didn't hear the traffic noise. Our reservation had been for Rudolph's Retreat, the smaller unit and it was... More

We stayed in Albert's Glen and fell in love with our room, the Guest House, our hosts, Galena, and so much more. Everything is filled to the brim with incredible high end custom art by Charles, one of the hosts, from drawings to ceramic tile to door hinges. The bed is luxurious, attention to guests' needs and comforts is impeccable.... More

Loved our suite of rooms in the historical building. Our suite had a firm mattress, pullout sofa, corner electric fireplace, small refrigerator, wine glasses and opener, good A/C, room darkening shades, nice bath with shower, and a private entrance up the porch steps from the parking. Light sleepers might notice the traffic on the highway, but I slept through any... More

Everything in our room was perfect. We loved all of the handcrafted tiles, sculptures and woodwork that was done by the owner (pictured below). The hot tub/ sauna room was great as well. Breakfast was incredible and we were full for hours. The owners really care and love what they do, as it shows when you stay there. We plan... More
