This was our first stay at a B&B and we only did it because we got a B&B Gift Card from our son and daughter-in-law. Boy, what we have been missing! Personable hosts that truly want you to have an enjoyable stay (unlike a normal hotel); relaxing wine and cheese at 5:30pm (unlike a normal hotel); a delicious breakfast that is included and you are served like guests (unlike a normal hotel) and true peace and quiet (you get where I am going with this right?)
We chose the Farmers' Guest House because of the Trip Advisor reviews as I knew if it was a horrible experience, my husband would NEVER do it again. No worries at Farmers'. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere, within walking distance to shopping shopping shopping. Cute, warm, welcoming decor with attention to detail and cleanliness.
We stayed in the Camelot Suite and it was huge! It is facing the street, but the only time we were bothered by road noise was when a couple of fire trucks went by sirens a blazin' and that is understandable. It could only have been better if it would have been chilly and we would have used the fireplace. But as it was, it was very cozy and the big whirlpool tub was fabulous after a busy day.
There is a refrigerator in the wine & cheese/breakfast room that always has pop or water for the guests, and room on one side for your own items you may have. We needed that for leftover chicken from the Market House that we wanted to have the next day for our drive to our next destination. I will leave a separate review for the Market House as that was great too.
I would highly recommend the Farmer's Guest House if you are in Galena. I would not consider myself a "picky" guest, but I like to be comfortable after a long drive. I provide customer service to others, so I appreciate good customer service when I get it, and you will get it at Farmer's.
