We decided to stick somewhat closer to home for our 32nd Anniversary getaway trip and the Avery and her new(er) Innkeepers,the warm and friendly Bob and his wife Cherish, did not disappoint. Rooms were immaculate,full breakfast delicious as well as fresh baked cookies in the afternoon. We felt like family. Thank you Bob & Cherish,we will be back soon!

The location, room, amenities, food, and hosts were great. What more can I say? We were there on Country Faire weekend when finding parking in Galena is a nightmare. We could walk to Main Street & Grant Park. So convenient! Bob the host was welcoming & such fun to talk to.

We absolutely loved our stay! The owners were so welcoming and accommodating to all. They really pay attention to details all around the house and add in their own personal touches with a candy bar, complimentary water, coffee, tea 24/7, games in the shared common room, wine glasses available, mini fridge, 420 friendly (outdoors), etc. They have a beautiful backyard with a cozy gazebo. We stayed in the “Lydia” Room and it was so clean, comfortable, and spacious. The bed was amazing and was very well kept. The breakfast was super delicious. The owner cooked the food in the morning and supplied coffee, water, and OJ to go along with it. We couldn’t have asked for a better time here at the Avery Guest House Bed and Breakfast. Definitely want to come back soon!

My wife and I got to spend a weekend at the Avery and it was great. Bob and Cherish were excellent hosts (even when I screwed up the booking). The breakfast was fantastic. Close walk to downtown Galena. Lots of local knowledge. We plan on going back next time we are in Galena.

Our hosts were amazing! Very polite and informative of the area. They gave lots of helpful dining and activity ideas. House was a joy to stay in, 5 min walking distance from downtown, beautiful back porch to enjoy your morning coffee, and just a overall relaxing place to stay. Breakfast each morning was beyond what we expected! Absolutely amazing! We were so stuffed each day there was no need for lunch. Very high recommendation for anyone looking to stay in the area, you will not be disappointed.
