Despite being a bit noisy, we had a great time. We stayed in a beautiful room with cozy Victorian decor. The hostess was kind and provided an excellent breakfast. It was the perfect place to cerebrate our anniversary.

My boyfriend and I loved the architecture of the Annie Wiggins guest house. The house was beautiful on the outside, and gorgeous on the inside! We were captured by the Victorian style look of the house and the rooms! We stayed in Sara's room, and I feel like it was one of the best rooms in the house! Not only...

We enjoyed the hospitality of the Annie Wiggins Guest house during our visit to Galena. Comfortable beds, impeccably clean, delicious breakfast and welcoming hostess. Up the hill from Main St., an easy walk through the riverside park and across the footbridge.

What a stunning bed and breakfast located within walking distance to downtown and other historic landmarks. I was immediately taken back from the moment I walked into this home. We were kindly greeted and given a brief tour before we were taken to Hattie's room. There was a private entrance and welcoming seating area looking into a small garden.Our room...

My wife and I made last min reservations for Sat night at Annie Wiggins and got the "Hattie Room". We are travelers, no kids and have impeccable taste. This B&B is so cute. Charming, old-world and COMFY! Beds and pillows are unreal and wonderful. TONS of character. Some rooms have a balcony, some don't. Check that before booking, arriving and...

Thank You Harry! So glad you enjoyed your stay! I just have one comment, You are so right about the WiFi, for Hatties and Sara's rooms! They are located with 4 brick walls between! The other rooms get it fine, and it also works in the parlor and dining rooms. Thank you for bringing that up :). I hope you...

Beautiful old home. The house was immaculately clean and the host very nice. The food was phenomenal. Our questions about the house were answered and also her knowledge of the Galena area was extremely helpfull. We spent much time sitting on the porch enjoying the beautiful weather and view of the garden. I would definitely go back.

Annie Wiggins Guest House is a beautifully restored property. We stayed in Sara's Room that was charming with a fireplace and private bath. Just outside the door is a covered porch and sitting area overlooking the garden. Breakfast was in a lovely dining room filled with antiques. We were served a tasty stuffed French toast, ham, fresh fruit, orange juice...

My daughter and I stayed at Annie Wiggins Guest House for two nights(27-29) and it was wonderful. We stayed in Jennie's Room. It was very clean and big enough for our purpose. The air conditioner kept our room at a nice temperature. The breakfast was delicious and since Mrs. Wiggins knew I was gluten free she made breakfast that I...

A really great bed and breakfast. Though it is a little outside of downtown it is easily walkable and is close enough to everything. The breakfast is good and the rooms and house are beautiful. It was an amazing place to stay for a getaway in Galena.

We were greeted by Wendy at the door with a warm smile and welcome. She showed us around the beautiful home and provided information about the rooms and meals and how to enter and leave during our stay. We settled in and since the weather was cold and rainy we spent some time in the parlor talking with our friends....
