Tierra Linda introduces us to a totally different way of life. Instead of TV, try setting up hammocks and looking for stars and constellations. Instead of walking around a mall - shopping, find a grass path and explore. Look at the hummingbirds, or all the other birds. Take your dog for a walk, take her to the beach, and let... More

Place is not very clean, went into town and left my dog in a crate in my room. Came back to find my dog outside. Was not happy asked him not to take my dog out of her crate before I left, found her outside with his two dogs and two other dogs and no water bowls. Do not stay... More

Tierra Linda is a scenic gem in the hills south of Galena. Its distinctive untamed landscape gives the sense of being in a remote wilderness, while only a 15 minute drive from downtown Galena. Come enjoy swimming in the pond in a dog friendly environment with your gracious host, Armando, who will make you feel like old friends even if... More

We love camping, hiking, fishing, and just being outdoors. We love to be able to getaway, turn off our phones, have no TV, and just enjoy nature and each other. After much searching we have finally found our perfect destination at Tierra Linda! Best of all... Our chihuahua Bella can come! We arrived after 10pm and Armando welcomed us at... More

We stayed at Tierra Linda last week, for a two night stay. We were not disappointed. Tierra Linda translates to Beautiful Earth and how fitting a name for this little treasure. We had our dog with us, on this trip and I believe he truly enjoyed himself. Armando spoils all the dogs with his cooking of chicken each night as... More

We LOVE Tierra Linda! It was such a relaxing experience and Armando is a fantastic host. He provided a delicious breakfast each morning, which included produce from local farms. His friendly puppies also joined us on walks through the wooded areas on Armando's property. Our room, La Luna, was quite peaceful and served as a great spot for stargazing before... More

After researching a few places nearby an event we are attending, I spoke with Armando regarding Tierra Linda.He was very rude and basically at the end of the conversation said it is not a motel or hotel and maybe that is what I'm looking for. I was comparing him to the Goldmoor and Lafevre which is where we will probably... More

This person called inquiring about availability to stay one night only. On our website we specifically explain that we do not accept guests for one night only. I asked her if what she wanted was just a place to spend the night and she said yes. I told her that Tierra Linda is not a motel where we come in... More

I have never seen so many hummingbirds in my life. They must be happy residents of the wonderland that Armando has carved out of a corner of Galena where, if you find yourself unable to relax, it may be time to start considering pharmaceuticals. We kicked back in Tierra Linda’s funky yard, mellowed by the sound of a crackling fire,... More

This place is amazing. A wooded paradise a few miles outside of Galena. The place has many wooded acres, a giant pond (I want to call it a lake that includes a island in the middle) that the owner Armando had made when he moved in, trails through the wooded areas, and a creek wandering through his property. I am... More

Returned from a three day long weekend with my husband and dog and still enjoying the aftereffects of life at Tierra Linda. This place is unlike any other B & B you will ever likely visit. The surrounding property is expansive albeit somewhat overgrown but easily accessible. Meandering paths lead to all types of natural wonders. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed... More
