Had a wonderful time. Don and Susan were very friendly and helpful. They gave us good suggestions for antique shopping and dining. The breakfasts were amazing! We stayed in the Aimee which was comfortable and quiet.

We decided to go to Farmer's Guest House for our 35th Anniversary as we had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before. We stayed in the Julia Suite which was named after President Grant's wife. The rooms were very spacious and peaceful. I loved the old-fashioned, large windows. The building itself was constructed in 1867. I felt as if...

So glad you enjoyed your 35th anniversary celebration! Our 150 year old historic inn is fully equipped with all the modern conveniences for today's traveler - that is, except for an elevator. With 12 foot ceilings that makes for 20 steps up our grand front staircase to get to most of the rooms. But, take heart, we will fortify you...

This was our first stay at the Farmers Guest House, and we will definitely be making return visits! Don and Susan were wonderful hosts and invited us upon our arrival to their relaxing "wine time" in the main dining area, a truly relaxing beginning to our stay with terrific conversation. The relaxing experience continued in the Aimee room which was...

Thank you for sharing your review. WineTime is an especially good time here at Farmers Guest House. I love sharing my behind-the-scenes stories about my Food Network experience and Don loves sharing about the rich history of our 150 year old inn and Galena in general. Of course, you can always take your wine to the gardens or your room...

We loved our room. The beds were very comfortable and spacious. The service was exceptional and very friendly. The breakfast is always fresh and delicious. It's like a home away from home. We will recommend this to everyone. Downtown strip is just a few minutes walk away.

This is my 3rd stay at Farmers Guest House. I stayed in the Malvina which is at the back of the B&B. Each room is unique.

We truly enjoyed our visit to this beautiful, historical Bed and Breakfast! We felt welcome and at home from the moment we walked in the door. Everything was clean, and tastefully decorated; Don and Susan were friendly and very accommodating. Our breakfasts were delicious and lovely all around; as were the fresh choc. chip cookies in the jar every day!...

Very beautiful B & B. Rooms were clean and very nicely decorated. Don and Susan were awesome hosts and served a very nice wine and cheese selection in the evening and the breakfast (caramel, apple, bacon French toast) was yummy! We were glad to be within walking distance of the shopping district
