Recently returned from a weekend at Farmers Guest House in the Pete & Eleanor whirlpool suite. I must say that this was our first B&B experience and we're not the type of people who would normally stay in a B&B, but in Galena its a must. Jess & Kathie made us feel like members of their family. They were very helpful in pointing out great things to do. I especially appreciated the bottomless cookie jar & free pop & water. We also enjoyed the wine & cheese hour. They also have a large selection of DVDs, even new releases. The location is fantastic since it is a quick walk to Main Street where all the shopping/restaurants are.
Our suite was on the first floor just off the dining room and has a seperate entrance to the outside, which was very handy. The photos of the room didn't do it justice. The suite was huge! Very nicely decorated & completed modern conveniences. The suite had 2 flat screen tvs. Seperate bathroom with stand-up shower, sitting room, and bedroom with whirlpool.
Breakfast was very delicious. My only wish is that there were more options during breakfast. There is one main dish (french toast one day, egg strata type casserole the second - both excellent). It'd be nice to have 2 dishes each day for picky eaters or in case you're in the mood for savory when they're serving sweet, vice-versa.
