A spur of the moment night away for my husband and I in Galena and we decided to try a Bed and Breakfast something we have always wanted to do. We selected the Farmers Guest House and what a great decision that was. As soon as we walked in I knew we had picked the right place, the Inn was...

We had an excellent night at the Farmers Guest House. The owners were very kind and worked to make our stay perfection. We were free to use the common room and the bottomless cookie jar was an extra treat. The breakfast was completely homemade and amazing. We would definitely return.

We rented the detached cottage which is behind the main guest house. It was exactly what we hoped for - private, clean, modern with all the amenities of the main house. Susan and Don are exactly the kind of B&B hosts I like - available if you need them but not intrusive if you don't. Breakfast was beyond amazing with...

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at this location during Valentine's Day. We rented the cottage, which is separate from the main building, and a very secluded two-story home. Everything was wonderful, and a ton of amenities -- we were very comfortable. We also had a family of deer outside of our door, every day. We actually...

This is a Bed and Breakfast in the very historic town of Galena, Illinois. It made me feel like I was stepping back in time to the 1850s (but with a modern bathroom, heating, etc.) The decor is country cheery and homey. My room was beautiful. It is within easy walking distance of the main attractions of Galena (the main...

Don and Susan were wonderful hosts. They accommodated our late arrival from Chicago, made us feel at home with delicious breakfasts, friendly wine hour, and were genuinely excited when we shared they we had gotten engaged on Saturday night. We couldn't have found a more perfect place to spend our weekend (and to create a great memory). The cottage was...

Thank you for your review and, once again, CONGRATULATIONS! We have never had a "no" at Farmers Guest House when someone has popped the question and Galena, with its romantic downtown, was such a perfect location for your special moment. Many happy returns! Susan & Don

Have stayed at several B&B's in Galena the past 25 or so years. Have settled on the Farmers Guest House as the only B&B we now use in Galena. Stayed there at least four trips now. Not that our experience at others have been bad. Just that Farmers Guest House has been perfect, and has become a home away from...
