We had an absolutely fabulous time!! We went there for our 11th Anniversary, and Susan and Don were so accommodating and welcoming! We booked the Charlotte Room, and it had a separate sitting room with a Jacuzzi tub and a separate private entrance. There was a complimentary wine hour at 5PM. Everything was wonderful! We would definitely return!

We had a great time at Farmer's Guest House. Don and Susan were so welcoming and very helpful. Nothing is overlooked in this b&b. Susan was very accommodating for our vegetarian and lactose intolerant needs. The food was wonderful. We also booked the couples massage, which was located right down from our room- Melvina. Very relaxing time for my husband...

My husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with a stay at the Farmers' Guest House in Galena and it was wonderful. Don and Susan were wonderful hosts, making us feel at home, making dinner and tour reservations, arranging for an on-site massage, and giving us great advice on things to do. Susan's gourmet breakfasts were "to die for"...

First time visiting a bed and breakfast and we were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful experience. Susan and Don made us feel very comfortable and their hospitality was top notch. The rooms were relaxing and comfortable and Susan's delicious breakfast did not disappoint!! We would highly recommend a stay here. It's close to everything.

This is our second visit to the Farmers Guest House, and the first time under the ownership of Don and Susan. We stayed in the beautiful and very comfortable Julia Suite. We had an absolutely fantastic time and Don and Susan could not have been more helpful, friendly, and fun. The Farmers is really two things in one: an intimate...

My husband and I do not usually stay at Bed and Breakfast guest houses, mostly because we have so many hotel points to use. So this was a change for us and I'm so glad we did!

My husband and I enjoyed three nights with Don and Susan at their welcoming B & B, the Farmers Guest House. Our stay was relaxing and enjoyable. We booked the Aimee room, which had a spacious bathroom, and it's own fireplace. The sheets were amazingly soft; we slept very well each night! Also great fun was to hear Susan's stories...

I highly recommend the Farmers Guest House. I loved that everything was so convenient. Once I arrived I didn't have to get in my car at all.

From the initial greeting and orientation around the B&B to the final farewell, the owner's of Farmers Guest House could not have done a better job.
