My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Farmers' Guest House during the beginning of April for a weekend getaway to celebrate both our five-year anniversary and my husband's birthday. It was a nice change of pace to stay in such a historic building, I believe the house dates all the way back to 1867. The decor is fun and whimsical and the breakfasts were filling and delicious. When we booked our stay Susan, one of the friendly innkeepers, was very thorough over the phone and recorded any food allergies, major dislikes and dietary restrictions when it came to preparing our breakfasts. We stayed in the Charlotte Suite based on reading prior reviews and just loved it. It's right off the breakfast area so it was nice to stumble out of our room and into a prepared breakfast with hot coffee each morning. The room itself had a gorgeous gas fireplace across from the bed, and in addition to a stand-up shower, a nice whirlpool tub in the adjoining room. The B&B also provided complimentary bathrobes during our stay which were so comfy that we couldn't leave without buying a set for the two of us. We parked across from the B&B and were very happy not to have moved our car once when venturing into town. It's a very short walk from the B&B into downtown Galena and we were very pleased with the location. In my zeal to give this place as many stars as I could, it looks like I accidentally gave its fitness center and swimming pool five stars and then wasn't able to leave those fields blank again. To be clear, the B&B doesn't have a fitness center or swimming pool but you truly don't need these. The weekend was spent walking all over town and on nearby trails, so no need to feel guilty indulging in the B&B's tasty breakfasts and skipping the gym! Overall this is a great place to stay for any couple thinking of visiting Galena and we'd definitely come back.
