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...

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...

This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review about a property. We frequently travel and this is just a wonderful guest house. The hosts are amazing. The breakfast was great. Easy walk to downtown. Free parking across the street.

Our stay at the Farmers' Guest House was amazing! We stayed for three nights and it couldn't have felt more like home! Where else can you go that you have a delicious three course breakfast, always filled cookie jars (with homemade chocolate chip and snickerdoodle while we were there) and wine daily at 5:00. Our room (the Jennie) was beautiful,...
