My husband and I were looking for a romantic and quiet getaway to Galena and we could not have imagined a more perfect setting than "The Farmers Guest House!" Don and Susan made sure our stay was one to remember and to return to! Our every need was thoughtfully attended to, from the comfort and amenities provided in our room,...

We stayed in the cottage, separated from the main building. Very comfy and private. Whirlpool, jacuzi, minifridge, two bathrooms, balcony seating. Fridge was always stocked with free water and sodas. Evening wine time with crackers and cheeses. Breakfast was different every day and was delicious. MImosas served. Very easy walk to downtown. Very nice relaxing experience.

Second stay for us and we tried the Julia suite this time. What a lovely room, full of light, from all the large windows facing the front of the house. Lots of room, comfy king bed, and nice spacious bath with a whirlpool tub. Lovely spa robes, also. As far as breakfast goes, OMG! Fruit bar, mimosa bar, followed by...

We came to Farmer's Guest House for a three night stay as a little anniversary getaway. We had a great experience and really appreciated all the little details that Don and Susan put into their B&B. The breakfast was outstanding all three mornings. The winetime and cookies are a nice addition as well. They are very knowledgeable about the city...

I downloaded this app just so I could write a review. Don and Susan are amazing they make you feel right at home. The cabin is beautiful I did not want to leave. The breakfast in the morning is fantastic. I hated to leave and can't wait to come back. I'd live there if Susan would let me.

We had a wonderful stay at Farmers Guest House. Susan and Don are quite the hosts, attending to every possible want and need. The inn is tastefully decorated with new and old accessories and collections. Breakfast was delicious! Susan creates tasty dishes served with fresh fruit and coffee from a local roaster. They spoil you with extras and will recommend...

The Farmer's Guest House is a wonderful historic place to come and get away for a few days. It is in a perfect location, letting guests take advantage of all the wonderful shops and sights of Galena with just a five minute easy walk. Our visit was a quilter's retreat. Tables, lamps, chairs, ironing boards/irons and a frig full of...
