My husband and I enjoyed three nights with Don and Susan at their welcoming B & B, the Farmers Guest House. Our stay was relaxing and enjoyable. We booked the Aimee room, which had a spacious bathroom, and it's own fireplace. The sheets were amazingly soft; we slept very well each night! Also great fun was to hear Susan's stories...

I highly recommend the Farmers Guest House. I loved that everything was so convenient. Once I arrived I didn't have to get in my car at all. It was a quick walk to the restaurants and Galena tourist sites. Susan and Don went above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable. They are friendly and professional. My room was clean...

From the initial greeting and orientation around the B&B to the final farewell, the owner's of Farmers Guest House could not have done a better job. The group I was with for our stay had the use of the living and dining rooms for meeting as needed. My room was clean and well appointed. There was nothing lacking. I follow...

The Farmers Guest House, well exceeded all my expectations. Susan and Don treat you just like close family. They truly catered to my every want and need. I felt right at home from the minute I was greeted upon my arrival until my hug upon departure. Breakfast was delicious and filled with surprises. The special dinner they prepared for us...

Susan and Don are top notch! Farmers Guest House was excellent! Susan and Don are very gracious and welcoming. The accommodations were very comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and the B&B was beautiful! Wonderful location, walking distance to the shops in Galena. Will return with my family next time!

I chose the Farmer's Guest House B&B for my first ever live business retreat. Boy did I make a GREAT choice. Susan and Don Steffan bent over backwards to help me plan it and make it a HUGE success. Every room in the B&B is beautiful, comfortable and up to date. All of the 11 women there for the retreat...

My wife and I visited Galena for the first time for an anniversary getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is convenient to town and other attractions. We did not use our car after we parked in the lot across the street which was great (it's busy in town on the weekends so parking can be a challenge). The...

Fantastic mid-week getaway for my wife and me. Wonderful, welcoming hosts and quiet, restful, comfortable suite. Easy access to all of Galena's treasures. We could easily walk to any destination downtown. We do not plan on staying anywhere else but the FGH for our next trip to Galena!

This B&B had everything we look for: Perfect hosts/accommodations, amazing breakfasts and a location that can't be beat. Don and Susan did everything to make our anniversary trip memorable. Susan also runs a cooking school, The Breakfast Diva, which we attended. You are only a 5 min walk from the main street of Galena so you don't have to worry...

This is the first time we have stayed in a Bed and Breakfast in Galena. The location was right off of downtown and within walking distance. The parking was across the street but never had a problem finding a spot. There were stairs to climb to reach our room, no elevator but there are rooms on the main floor for...
