Tierra Linda is one of these places which transcends any category. If you are looking for the conventional B&B, in which the proprietor checks you in, tells you what time breakfast will be, shows you to your room and doesn't say a word to you until check-out, then Tierra Linda is NOT for you. If you are looking for a...

My husband and I had been planning a trip to Galena for a while; I started looking on the internet, until I found Tierra Linda. From the very beginning I fell in love with it.

If you're a caffeine addict who owns your cappucinno machine--or if you regularly get your fix at Starbuck's or Peets-- and are wondering if you'll get the caffeine experience you need at this funky little B&B off the beaten tracks in Galena, IL.... fear not! Your host, Armando, will make you an absolutely delicious latte--with refills--that will satisfy your big...
