Though we have stayed at other B&Bs, the first time we walked into the Felt Manor we knew this was the best. This is about the eighth or ninth time that we have stayed at Felt Manor. The authenticity of this1800s mansion lends to a real atmosphere of it being warm, inviting and cozy. All of the rooms are wonderful...

Our stay at the Felt Manor was nothing short of fabulous! The high tea was PHENOMENAL! You could almost make a full meal out of what was served. The breakfasts were devine! (Sandy's coffee cake was to DIE for) The house was peaceful and tastefully decorated with antiques but was not stuffy and overly formal. You were made to feel...

Felt Manor is a wonderful, cozy, historic and lovingly cared for place to stay while you are in Galena. The food, well, it's just fabulous. We have never had such wonderful breakfasts. Also, the afternoon teas are a treat! Laura and Sandy do things right. Our room was large and finely decorated. The bed, very comfortable. We slept so well!...

This was our second stay in the last couple of years and I'm so glad we decided to stay at Felt Manor again. We will definately make this an annual trip. Laura and her assistant Sandy are like family to us. The breakfasts are incredible and one hardly needs to think about lunch once you have had the best food...

Very nice, older home set up on the hill overlooking the town. Being only two blocks away from the main street shopping and eating was very nice, since parking is difficult near the downtown area on the weekends. The house itself is beautiful and the service was excellent. The owner was out of town but her assistance, Sandy was on...

My husband and I stayed there for one Sat night late Sept 2007 and overall, we'd recommend it. The PROS: 1) The food is excellent. We'd go back just for the afternoon tea. It's a meal in itself. We had to hold ourselves back from eating the variety of appetizers b/c we had early dinner reservations. There was stuffed mushrooms,...

We stayed for a two night weekend deal. The food was good. The rooms were decorated like how it probably looked 100 years ago, so it kind of takes you to a different, older period of time. There is only 1 TV in the house and books line every shelf, so you have a lot of oppty. to read. The...
