We decided to spend a weekend in Galena on the recommondation of our cousin. We checked reviews on trip advisor and decided to stay at Farmer's Guest House. At first sight we knew that this place held a certain magic. The exterior was draped in Christmas pine and lights. Upon entering we were greeted by our gracious hosts Don and Susan. We arrived ( by plan ) right on time for the evening wine and cheese party, which starts at 5:30. It is a great time to relax after a days drive or time spent exploring the beautiful and historic town of Galena. Don and Susan had menus from nearly every restaurant in town and offered great dining tips. Susan even called and made our dinner reservation for us. The 140 year old interior of farmers Guest House was completed decked out for the holidays. I think we could have spent a week there and not seen everything. This was only the second time that we have stayed at a B&B and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Don and Suasn pamper their guests with a level of service and care rivaling the finest hotels we have stayed in. Susan's breakast was home cooked and fantastic. The rooms are clean, cozy and warm. When returning to Farmer's Guest House after a day in town, I commented to Don that after only one day, I felt as if I was returning to my own home. He said "that is exactly how we want you to feel". Thanks for everything! We will be back. Oh.. one last thing, the historic town and and shops that my wife so dearly loves are only a five minute walk away, so stay here away from the hustle and parking hazzle.

My girlfriend and I wanted a quick getaway and, encouraged by the excellent reviews, booked a mid-week stay at the Farmers' Guest House. We were delighted by what we found. It is a very lovely property conveniently located next to Galena's Main Street. Don and Susan are wonderful, welcoming people and made every effort to make us feel at home. They were particularly helpful with finding things to do, sights to see, and where to eat/drink (they conveniently had menus from the best local restaurants). We loved the breakfasts, we loved the daily evening "wine time", and their restaurant suggestions were spot on (we didn't have one bad meal while in Galena). We both highly recommend the Farmers' Guest House. The midweek special is a great value!

My wife & I spent an evening at this lovely property. Very comfortable room with a sitting room upstairs & the dining area open with cookies (both varieties delicious) & tea & coffee. They really make you feel welcome & comfortable. Breakfast was good & hearty & sitting around the table with other guests was a fun start to the day. A short walk to the main streets, we also unpacked our folding bicycles & enjoyed the nearby river trails. Great town & Farmer's Guest House is a lovely & gracious accommodation.

Thank you for your review! We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed our common areas as well as your private rooms. We have several large common rooms that are always open to our guests - including the dining room. And, yes, it is a short walk to downtown and the trails. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Wonderful, warm and quiet. Located close to all the charm of downtown Galena and just a short walk to great restaurants. We stayed recently for our 20th anniversary and had a very nice time. Don and Susan are wonderful and breakfast was fantastic.

We had not visited Galena before but on recommendations of friends, we stayed at the Farmers' Guest House--and were delighted with what we experienced. The food was excellent, as were the accomodations, but that doesn't do justice to Don and Susan's ongoing hospitality. They offered a variety of information on Galena took care of all our assorted requests with enthusiasm and efficiency. We can't wait to go back again!
