This past weekend, my boyfriend and I took a trip to Galena to celebrate his birthday. Dan greeted us with a warm welcome and a great tour of the beautifully historic home. On our way out to dinner, Lauren gave us some Galena insider tips on where to go for drinks and live music. We actually ran into Dan and...

I took my wife to Galena for a Birthday/Babymoon weekend. Felt Manor wasn't my 1st choice due to Trip Advisor ranking but I wouldn't stay anywhere else ever again. The breakfasts were to die for. They were so healthy and filling that we needed to lay down after breakfast to let it digest a bit before heading out for the...

We were so happy our first b &b stay was at Felt Manor. We were greeted by Dan right away with a tour of the luxurious and historical home. We were made to feel right at home from the time we arrived. Our breakfast prepared by Laura both days was absolutely amazing. She was also very knowledgeable of the history...

We love staying at Felt Manor. The house is just up the hill from town. Tea is served with hors d'oeuvres and sweets. Breakfast is amazing. The house is beautiful. The rooms are more than comfortable. We had a great weekend

Upon arrival, Dan (the Owner and Innkeeper) greeted us at our cars and assisted us with our luggage. After a tour of the gorgeous house, we were shown to our rooms and made to feel right at home! I was pleasantly surprised that Dan had upgraded my room (at no extra charge!) so that I was directly across the hall...

When we pulled up into the parking area around the back of Felt Manor, we were in awe of the beauty and immense size of this 1848 mansion in historic Galena. We entered through the porch and found the interior to be clean, well decorated, warm and quite charming. We were greeted warmly by our Innkeeper, Laura, who gave us...

Hi Sandra, Thanks for writing a great review. In speaking with Laura, I learned she did go above and beyond her job with the extra appetizers, and providing rides in the rain to and from Main St. I will gladly pass along this additional praise of her efforts. All the best, Dan

Perfect place to stay, we have never stayed in a B&B before but this has been the best experience we have had, Laura made an awesome breakfast each morning and gave us a lot of suggestions on places to eat and visit. Thank you for the great time and we will be back.

WOW!!! What a find, a fantastic 1860's manor house in authentic decor complete with balconies. We arrived at the back to park the car and wondered what we had done as the house looked like it was just taken from the 19th century, the inside was unbeleivable as it was like stepping back in time. There was what was called...
