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. On this trip I brought my friend who found Farmers Guest House just as relaxing. We came to hike and enjoy wine. Susan and Don are fantastic hosts. Susan's breakfasts are to die for,...

We loved every minute of our stay at Farmers Guest House. The rooms were beautiful, the breakfasts were beyond amazing and Wine Time was a blast each day! Plus, we were just a short walk from Galena's Main St. with lots of fun shops and restaurants. Susan and Don are awesome hosts. Because of them, we had delicious dinner experiences...

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!...

To sum up Farmers Guest House: Susan and Don give special attention to people's wants and needs! We watched as Susan interfaced with couple after couple doing her best to meet their dietary wants/needs and do anything she could do to give them the best Galena experience possible! Yes, it's a nice building with ample parking directly across the road...

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

After choosing Galena to spend a few days with some longtime friends we stayed at the Farmers Guesthouse. Best choice we could have ever made! We were treated like family and made ourselves at home. Each morning we were greeted with fresh brewed coffee and the most amazing breakfasts you could ask for! The rooms were clean and the wine...

Susan and Don provide a wonderful Bed and Breakfast experience in their historical and clean home conveniently located near downtown Galena. They were both so accommodating to my husband and me.

Don and Susan are the most incredible hosts. Five of us traveled to Galena for a Quilters Retreat. There was nothing more to ask for: a beautiful room, amazing and delicious breakfast, wine and cheese served in the evening, great dinner recommendations and the most friendly, cozy atmosphere possible. I can hardly wait until our trip next year.
