“Great B & B! Very welcoming!”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

Went on a girl's getaway to celebrate our 50th birthdays and had a great time at the Abbey's High Street Bed and Breakfast. Tom and Kathleen were very welcoming and treated us like we were family which was so nice. We enjoyed visiting with them in the backyard by the bonfire - so relaxing! The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious! Location is convenient and we were able to walk to the main street for shopping. Overall it was a great experience and would definitely come back!!

After 6 hours on a scooter ride, Galena being our destination, we arrived on High St. to the charming, lovely Abbey's B&B and was welcomed by a hostess who went beyond the call of duty in pampering us. The day only got better as we settled in to our cozy rooms and rested our bodies outdoors on the beautiful grounds in a gazebo that has a fantastic view of Galena. High St. is named for a good reason.

Hostess Kathleen's breakfasts are scrumptious and nutritious. One can always tell when you meet people that just love what they're doing. Tom and Kathleen, my hats off to you.

R&R was what we were looking for and we found heaven!

From the moment we walked through the door, we were welcomed literally with open arms.
Our Hostess, Kathleen, was absolutely charming, with a smile that would light up any room!
She and her husband Tom have renovated, and performed wonders on this great old home. It is beautiful. The yard and gardens are lovely. There is a magnificent view from the charming gazebo which is perched on the corner of the property, which has a commanding overlook of downtown Galena. We took naps there!
Then there is "Queenie", a beautiful Collie who is every bit as welcoming as her masters.
Not a dog person, no problem. Queenie knows her place. She has her own part of the house, and is only allowed to socialize with those who are willing.
The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. It is interesting to see the "before" pictures of some of the rooms. Wow, what a change.
Now, for the second "B", in B&B, breakfast.! I have stayed in more than a few B&B's over the years, but have never been treated to such wonderful, and elegantly prepared breakfasts as the ones Kathleen bestowed upon us. Each one looked like a picture ripped right out of Gourmet Magazine. Kathleen is quite the chef.
My friends and I had ridden our scooters to Galena. Kathleen generously offered to take us on a personally guided tour of some of the more interesting and historic sites of Galena, and did so on her scooter. She really went above and beyond on all levels.
Thanks to her, and the friends we visited in Galena, we had a wonderful time, and hope to return soon! Thank you Kathleen & Tom!

My wife and I went on the trolley tour thru downtown Galena as first time visitors and first year anniversary celebrators. We had stayed at another B&B our first night in town and did not have the best of stays despite the great reviews and pictures. We went in search of a place more "us" and saw Abbey's High Street during our fun tour.
Before diving into another busy day, we knew we had to find someplace we could grab a nap and enjoy coming back to after a long day on the town. After phone calls and a few B&B tours, we arrived at Abbeys, were greeted by Queeny the Collie, and were instantly connected to the property and ready to unpack! Kathleen our hostess was warm and inviting and opened her home with welcome arms. We had lemonade after we unpacked and a peaceful nap. There were no lingering questions in our mind as what we should expect and we were told to ask for anything we needed.
Our breakfast was fresh and gourmet quality, served at a perfect time, and a wonderful start to our last day in Galena. As we drove off, Kathleen and Queeny gave us a wave from the porch making us wish we were staying just one more day... We'll definitely come back again for another homey experience.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room with the jacuzzi tub/Grants Room

Beautiful home with view of Grant's Park in historic Galena, IL, home of President and Civil War Hero US Grant. Home belonged to physician and friend of President Grant who lived 4 doors down. Wonderful garden including, benches, swings, fountain and gazebo. Gardens are warmly lit and romantic at night. Breakfast both mornings was delicious. (We liked it so well we stayed two nights!) Two tastefully decorated sitting rooms with historical pieces including functioning 200 year old grandfather clock. Wifi was available for keeping in touch or the workaholic on the go. Even more raving were owners and hosts Kate and Tom. They were amiable, helpful, friendly and treated us like family. Their demeanor made us comfortable and at ease - everything you are looking for in B&B hosts and more! And , of course, Galena is a spectacular place to visit for the Civil War buff, antique shopper, and couples who love to view historic homes. It was the perfect getaway for us and will be for you too!
