My boyfriend and I stayed here for the Memorial Day weekend. Neither of us have stayed at a bed and breakfast before and really did not know what to expect. We were both very pleased with the establishment, the accommodations, breakfast, location and general ambiance. I call this an understated gem as the pictures from the website truly do not do the establishment justice. We stayed in the Julia suite and as soon as you open the door you walk into a very spacious and comfortable sitting area, which also led to our larger then expected bathroom. The room itself for our 3 day stay was so welcoming with the large windows and very comfortable bed. It felt like you were almost coming home.

Breakfast was always phenomenal,(especially the caramel apple bacon french toast - yum!) and the atmosphere of the dining area with the wall of clocks, complimented so well with the decor of the room. Again, even with this being our first stay at such a place, I felt comfortable with these surroundings and the owners always made you feel welcomed, yet non-intrusive. If you had a question definitely readily available. I also was pleased that everything they state on their website as providing, they do. There is a wine time and there is always full cookie jars - (with some very good chocolate chip cookies).

The location of this establishment was also perfect, you are only about a 5 minute walk from Main Street, and even the walk to Grant's home took us only about 20 minutes (there is a very steep hill for those non-active walkers/runners - but you could also very easily drive and park there in less than 5 minutes).

I could not be happier with this establishment. I highly recommend it and next time our travels take us to Galena, it will be the first on my list. This may have ruined my ability to stay at a regular hotel.

My boyfriend and I did a one night trip to Galena this past weekend and stayed at the Farmers' Guest House based off of the great reviews I saw on tripadvisor. All of the excellent reviews are spot on. Susan and Don are so welcoming and accomodating. The B&B itself is in a great location and absolutely adorable. Every nook and cranny was decorated with unique, vintage pieces.

We went to the wine happy hour Susan and Don host every evening and it was a great time to talk to other guests and have a drink before dinner. Breakfast was delicious, Susan's almond cranberry muffins were to die for.

Our stay here was the perfect relaxing escape fromm the city that we hoped for. I will definitely be recommmending the Farmers Guest House to anyone I know planning a trip to Galena and we hope to return someday too!

Thank you for your review. Our WineTime every afternoon at 5 p.m. is included in the room rate for all guests and is certainly a highlight of our day. We enjoy hearing about your adventures in Galena and sharing a glass (or two!) of wine or one of the many non-alcoholic beverages we offer as a guest amenity. Although WineTime is not required, it is entertaining. We look forward to your next visit.

Many happy returns,
Susan & Don

This was our first trip to Galena and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. We were is the spacious Julia Suite---very comfortable. Don and Susan were extremely accommodating and served a great breakfast each morning. Their knowledge of the town and recommendations for dinner were right on! Would definitely stay here again when we return to the area. The House is within easy walking distance of the Main Street shopping and restaurants.

I surprised my wife with our first trip to Galena and this is the best B&B we've ever stayed in. Don and Susan accommodated (and were very knowledgeable about) my wife's dietary restrictions. It was a big difference from our other experiences where we have just been told what not to eat. They also had some great recommendations for the area, all of which we took advantage of, and they left us a special treat, a bottle of champagne for our actual anniversary.

We stayed in the Jennie, which was the perfect size for our needs, and we didn't hear other guests, even though we knew it was a full house. Great experience; will definitely be back in the future.

The Farmer's Guest House will forever hold a special place in my heart! My fiancé proposed in the Charlotte Suite On 12/20/13. Don and Susan were very accommodating! Breakfast was made at our convenience, and we received a complimentary bottle of champagne after our engagement. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas which allowed us to take our first engagement picture! I would highly recommend a weekend stay at the Farmer's Guest House! We will definitely be returning and maybe the next time will be an anniversary getaway!
