My husband and I just spent a wonderful weekend staying at Abe's Spring Street Guest House. The room was exactly as pictured and described. Wonderful full cooked breakfasts. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend the B&B.

The B&B is great. Very clean and cozy. Check and and out was very simple and it's nice to have the small parking lot available. Easy and close walking distance to all areas to visit downtown. Sandra has great stories and makes an excellent breakfast!

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.

You must experience for yourself the love and craftsmanship that Charles and Sandy have put in their B & B. We enjoyed hearing how the couple's love for art and woodworking abound in the suites that they rent. Charles' talent is seen in precious art that depicts their fury family members of the past as well as loved species of... More

My husband and I love coming to Galena for weekend getaways at least a couple times a year. We have stayed in several hotels in Galena and a few Bed & Breakfast's in Iowa. We wanted to try a B&B in Galena, but found that most were out of our price range and did not have king size beds. My... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Abe's Spring Street Guest House last week and cannot say enough good things about our experience! The innkeepers were amazing and the story of their B&B is really fun! Tons of history, not only related to the buildings, but also to how they resurrected this beautiful property. The breakfasts were delicious and... More

Spent one night at Abe's Spring Guest House in the smaller suite. The suite was perfect with a big comfortable bed, a nice sitting room, and luxurious bathroom. 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....

I have stayed at several B & Bs and Abe's is by far the best I at which I've ever stayed. The building is historic and beautiful. The walls are very thick, so being on Rt. 20 is never a problem; we didn't hear the traffic noise. Our reservation had been for Rudolph's Retreat, the smaller unit and it was... More

We stayed in Albert's Glen and fell in love with our room, the Guest House, our hosts, Galena, and so much more. Everything is filled to the brim with incredible high end custom art by Charles, one of the hosts, from drawings to ceramic tile to door hinges. The bed is luxurious, attention to guests' needs and comforts is impeccable.... More
