We stayed at this B&B during the Memorial Day weekend. The location is perfect, 5 min walk to the best restaurants in town. The house is on a quiet street and traffic noise is non-existent, and there is plenty of free parking in front of the house. The house is very well maintained, the hosts, Craig and Leslie, are very friendly and non-intrusive. The 5pm cookies were a nice touch, freshly baked by Leslie every day. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The house is very clean, beds are comfortable and the hosts go above and beyond to make sure everybody has everything they need at all times. They can recommend day trips, good places to eat dinner and things to do if you want to take it easy and if you are not a very active type of person. If you are an active type of person, your mind will be blown away by how many things you can do to burn up all that energy! Galena has so many things to do that you will have a hard time making a plan once you learn what you can do in the area and in town. You never realize how much is there to do until you spend a day or two in the city, walk around and try to cover as much ground on foot as possible. Biking in the city is fun, but not for somebody that does not do it on a regular basis, though...
But back to lodging! Our room, Sandra Key, was perfect! Very cozy, very clean with a comfortable bed/mattress, a claw foot soaking tub and quality linens and towels.
The morning breakfast was delicious and all guests breakfast requests were easily accommodated (mine included). It was comforting to come back at the end of a long day spent sightseeing to a clean, comfortable, quiet place. We truly enjoyed our stay and we will definitely consider staying here again if we decide to spend a night or two in Galena in the near future.

Instead of always seeing Galena in October, I decided to try it for NYE. The one constant that remained?....Avery Guest House! Craig and Leslie are such friendly warm people who always make us feel right at home. But, what also can't be beat is the location! Right down the street from downtown Galena! After a relaxing dinner with drinks there is no need for a cab, simply walk down to the end of Main st. And your there. Have I mentioned the room rates?! Because let me tell you they're the best in town!

Room tip: If booking in the fall, make sure to reserve a few months in advance.

We really enjoyed our second visit to Avery and enjoyed Leslie and Craig's hospitality.
The house is tastefully set for the Christmas season already - beautiful trees throughout the house. Breakfast of french toast, bacon and eggs. Yummers. See you again soon!

Room tip: We like Carla Ann's room at the top of the stairs.

Leslie and Craig are wonderful hosts. They take the time to answer questions and see that their guests love the Galena area as much as they do. Tasty breakfasts and the evening treat is a nice extra. Most of all, I think there proximal location to downtown (without climbing stairs) is an added perk.

A two minute walk from Main Street, Galena. Such a great little town and a very sweet b&b.

Lovely hosts, great breakfast and cute rooms. The hosts even leave out an evening dessert, which was most appreciated!

Our room was a little warm with just the fan, but we just opened the window and then were completely fine.

Would stay again.
