My partner had never stayed in a B&B, so I arranged the 3 for 3 package through the innkeeper at The Steamboat House, a B&B directly across the street from the Avery. She set up our three night mid-week Galena stay for one night each at three different B&Bs. The Avery was our home-away-from-home for our first night, which was...

We have been coming to Avery Guest House Bed and Breakfast once a year for the past 10 years. I just cannot say enough wonderful things about this B&B. It really is like stepping into the past and being welcomed home each and every time we come back. Craig and Leslie are some of the kindest people you could ever...

Beautifully decorated and very clean. Hosts were very accommodating on every level. The desserts every night were delicious. Breakfast was plentiful and always delicious as well. As huge water drinkers, we asked the first day for ice water and it was set out every day for us, no additional requests needed. That's paying attention to the needs of your guests!...

My sister, mother, and I stayed at the Avery B&B in the Carla Ann room for the weekend. What a great place! We would definitely go back! The location is perfect, only a block or two from all the shopping, dining, and attractions. The house is beautiful and has a nice porch to sit and enjoy the view. Perhaps best...

Last minute decision to stay overnight in Galena - we were fortunate to get the last room at the Avery Guest House. Great location just a few blocks from Main Street, easy walking to and from shops and restaurants. Lovely hosts and a good hearty breakfast to start the day. Five stars for the evening dessert of frosted brownies!

The Avery Guest House was a very nice place to stay for me and my sister's girls get away weekend. We were celebrating my oldest sister getting married and this was a post celebration.
