“Relaxation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2011

My wife and I stayed at Abe's for her birthday with another couple. We had a remarkable time. The proprietors are very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious both mornings! The hot tub and sauna on the premises was superb! We had a very relaxing and enjoying weekend filled with wine tastings, massages and seeing the gorgeous sites that Galena offers in the Autumn. Our guest suite was very charming and spacious. We booked a birthday package and I was contacted to ask what kind of cake we would like for my wife's birthday. It was made next door at the Galena Bakery (I think that's the name) and it was delicious and offered lots to share. I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking to get away and enjoy themselves.

Took my BFF for a surprise getaway after her chemo. I researched B&B's, and kept coming back to Abe's Spring Street, boy am I glad I did. Sandy & Charles are the perfect hosts. Rudolphs Retreat room was wonderful. Very cozy, fireplace, king size bed, too many plus's to mention. Did the glaze&graze, just awsome. Sandy's breakfast's were amazing. The sculptures & pottery were breathtaking. Will stay again. Thanks Sandy & Charles, and of course Oreo.

I cannot recommend Abe's enough. My wife and I stayed in Rudolph's Retreat and got some fantastic rest, enjoyed leisurely walks over to Main St. and had some great breakfasts each morning. I used to go up to Galena for skiing and had never enjoyed the downtown and now can't wait to go back again to enjoy some of the wineries as well as another weekend at Abe's.

My husband have been to Galena many times and like to try a different B&B every time. We have enjoyed every place we have stayed, but Abe's is now at the top of our list. This is definitely the most private B&B we have stayed at since there are only 2 rooms and each has its own entrance. Sandy is very friendly and easy to find in the shop next door if you need her, and is definitely not “in your face” the way some innkeepers tend to be. We stayed in Albert's Glen....the room was huge and could actually be a full apartment. It is decorated beautifully with Charles artwork (including the tiles on the kitchen counter, and around the fireplace) and in particular the bed was fabulous with the figurines! The bathroom was huge and very unique with 4 stairs to go into the bathroom, sloped walls and a huge open shower. In addition to the huge bedroom and bathroom, it has a kitchen with a sink, microwave, full size refrigerator and a coffeepot, a gas fireplace, a separate sitting area with a couch, TV, DVD & VCR players. One of my favorite things is that it has its own thermostat! Even though it is located right on the highway, with the 27” walls it was amazingly quiet. Breakfasts were wonderful and were served in Charles & Sandy’s kitchen on dishes that were made by Charles. Sandy obviously takes care of the B&B, so Charles is not around much, but on Saturday he has an open house where you can watch him throw pottery and we found him to be very friendly and it was very informative. The location is a very easy walk to the shops downtown. There is also a private hottub and sauna that we did not use. Overall I would highly recommend this place. You get the feel of a B&B, but with a lot more privacy. Location, food, price, friendliness….everything was perfect!
