I've stayed in B & B's in Europe, but Susan and Don have outdone all of them with their hospitality. Bed was COMFORTABLE, Breakfast WONDERFUL. I'm a business traveler and usually stay in the big box hotels -- went out on a limb and stayed at this B & B and if I could stay at one just like it, business travel would be much more palatable. Susan had breakfast ready for me before I left (even though it was out of their normal schedule), and had a sack breakfast ready on the day I headed back to catch a Chicago flight. I stayed an extra night at the B & B rather than returning to spend the night at a noisy hotel in Chicago. Definitely recommend to business folks.

Room Tip: The cottage in back would probably be fun for a summer weekend away from the City!

I absolutely enjoyed my stay. Don and Susan have a beautiful place and they are so easy going and wonderful to visit with. The whole house is cleaner than clean and for being a huge place with beautiful high ceilings it was comfortably warm in every room which is important to me because I do not enjoy being cold. If you are planning a visit to Galena this is a wonderful place to stay because it is conveniently located and very easy to find. I can't wait to go again.

We just enjoyed a great girls' weekend scrapbooking at Farmer's Guest House!! Don & Susan were fabulous, and, of course, it was wonderful to see Charles again. They all made us feel right at home...so much so that we scrapped in our jammies. The rooms are well appointed, downtown is a quick 5-10 walk and they serve the BEST cookies around (my personal favorite - oatmeal raisin).

If we had a need or request, they were right there to meet that need. It was exactly what we six moms -- who spend much of our lives serving our families -- needed!

If you are looking for a weekend getaway with your crafting friends, check out Farmer's Guest House's crop weekends! You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mary room. Plenty of room and a nice bathroom!

Jamie and I stayed at Farmer's following a recommendation from a work colleague.

Walking into Farmer's is like coming home after a long day of work. Your stress leaves you as you close the door behind you. Because of their welcoming and hospitable personas, meeting Don and Susan is like meeting with old friends. The rooms are cute, quiet and warm. The wine time provides a nice time to chat with other guests and learn about their weekend plans. Don and Susan supplied us with some great recommendations before we ventured (by foot) downtown.

Susan's breakfast is an awesome way to start your morning. Unique and delicious. Susan listens to your dietary concerns to ensure a tasty and satisfying meal. Susan, Don and Charles share in the conversation. Charles' one-liners were a hit in my book.

This was our first visit, and won't be our last. Thanks Don, Susan, Charles and The Farmer's Guest House!

Aaron, thank you so much for your review! Yes, Farmers Guest House wouldn't be the same without Charles! We are delighted you felt so much at home for that is our goal, that every guest would feel comfortable and relaxed from the time they enter. It is also wonderful to park the car and not have to drive downtown and find a parking space. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

My wife and I hadn't stayed at a B&B before. We picked the Farmers Guest House based on TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. We actually had our hearts set on a specific room in the house, but it was unavailable. "Not a problem," said Susan as she upgraded us for the same cost. Susan was extremely helpful all weekend in setting up reservations for meals and massages. Overall, we had a great experience. The food was very good, the place was beautiful and clean, and all of downtown is accessible by a scant 5- to 10-minute walk. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Cottage had a little less character than the main house, but it's a great private and cozy place to get away.
