My husband and I had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at this unique BNB! The spa and hot tub was so relaxing after a walk to downtown on a winter's night, and the breakfast was amazing each morning! The sense of privacy that the room and location brings was a great add on to our weekend too!

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend and really enjoyed our time at Abe's Spring Street Guest House. We were in Rudolph's Retreat and loved the size and layout of the suite. Breakfast each morning was tasty, and Sandy was an excellent host. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed hearing how the couple's love for art and woodworking abound in the suites that they rent.

The guest house is within walking distance of downtown Galena so you can't beat the location and the price was reasonable. The breakfast was wonderful, and our host couldn't have been nicer....
