We were visiting Galena for the first time, and wanted to try a B&B that was also walking distance to shops and restaurants. Felt Manor fit the bill perfectly, Our host, Dan, was friendly and welcoming, and gave us a short tour as we arrived. The breakfasts were amazing, and MORE than filling (we skipped lunch both days since we...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 21 November 2016 via mobile

We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay at the Felt Manor. Dan was very welcoming, and makes an amazing breakfast. The rooms are comfortable and the atmosphere encourages you to relax, soaking in the local flavor of Galena. Hot cookies and wine every night. Would highly recommend.

The Felt Manor sells itself on it's history and beauty alone. It's been impeccably maintained and Dan has made it his labour of love. His knowledge of the residence and the time and money he's invested in his 20 years show through with his passion as he tells you anything you'd like to know about it. The evening wine, cookies...

Dan was welcoming and warm! We had an excellent time. Dan's gourmet breakfasts were delicious and amazing. The room was beautiful and the common areas were extremely comfortable. Each night there were homemade cookies and various beverages. This was an exceptional place to stay and I highly recommend it!

Stayed at Felt Manor for a one night getaway and was thoroughly impressed. The home is beautiful and kept to the period inside and out. Dan was very friendly and accommodating and talked in depth with us on the history of the property, house and family. We were greeted upon arrival by a wine reception with a crackling fire in...

Our family of six, (incl. 4 teens), rented the entire B&B on a Wed. night over Christmas break. Dan did a terrific job keeping us comfortable and welcome the night of our stay. He started a natural wood fire in the sitting room a couple times. I really enjoyed the Christmas lighting in each room downstairs. Very comfortable and relaxing....

Had a wonderful stay here- have been to other B&Bs in town and this is my new favorite. The place is run very laid back with always great music playing, wine available, and cozy fires roaring. We had just as much fun hanging out in the house as in town. Extra special experiences were the small book in the room...

My husband and I loved how peaceful the house was! The breakfasts were amazing! The only drawback was that you had to decide your mealtime the night before and breakfast took over an hour. We will return again sometime though. We loved being spoiled!

My wife and I loved Felt Manor for it's history, charm, and price. We need to be frugal, yet we enjoy being pampered, and Dan certainly made us feel special. The cook to order omelettes and freshly ground select coffee made breakfast a unique experience in the relaxing dining room. The historic home was clean, and convenient to Main Street...
