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...

This was the most relaxing and welcoming place. I would love to live there. From the amazing brunch, beautiful rooms and living room space. I stayed for two nights and the whole experience was everything I needed. I stayed with my mother and made this a girls trip, but will definitely bring my husband back the next time! I felt...

My husband and I took the opportunity to stay at the Farmer's Guest House again. We've been there a few times, but this was the first time with Don and Susan. Such a fantastic couple and a wonderful weekend! The food and the owners made the place completely worth it!

Such a wonderful time. We stayed in the Charlotte Suite on October 1 and 2. Food was excellent. Very accommodating. We can't wait to go back next year. October Fest was going on and was a lot of fun. Going back the same time of year!

We have stayed at several B&B's in Galena and Farmers was absolutely the best! Susan, Don and Charles were gracious, accommodating and downright fun with our large group! Loved the central location, large bathrooms, attention to detail and wine time! Highly recommend taking Susan's cooking class - fun and informative! Planning another stay at Farmers in January!

Breakfast was excellent as was the afternoon wine social. This room layout was helpful in meeting and socializing with other guest which is a benefit of staying in a B&B. Don & Susan are very proud owners of the Farmers Guest House and it shows in every detail. Susan always makes herself available at both breakfast and the afternoon wine...

Top-notch service and accommodation! Having never done the b&b thing before, I was a bit worried about privacy, amenities,etc. However, staying at Farmers was a delightful combination of family feeling and luxury hotel comfort. Susan was a great host and did everything in her power to ensure all the guests' comfort and satisfaction. Galena is a long way from home,...

Galena is a picturesque town and Farmer's Guest House topped off our stay. The owners work hard to make everyone comfortable and to assist you in making the most of your time in Galena.
