“Good value at comfortable craftsman guest suite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2011

We stayed in the Albert's Glen room, a very large & clean 3 room suite that includes every comfort expected for a Galena getaway. Unique and quirky (in a most complimentary way), since elements of the building restoration and some furnishings were done by the talented craftsman / owner. The nearby owners home and business are equally amazing to see. A hearty and tasty homemade breakfast was included. We loved the stay and look forward to returning.

Staying at Abe's Spring Street Guest house was a relaxing experience. It was quiet and comfortable. Our room and the sauna room were both spotlessly clean and very nice. Charles and Sandy were very hospitable. We enjoyed Charles' pottery demonstration and Sandy's breaksfasts were beyond compare. While we enjoyed the delicious meal she had prepared, Sandy entertained us with historical anecdotes about the guest house and Galena's history. Later, Charles offered his recommendations on where to eat dinner. Considering the relatively inexpensive price, I feel we recieved more than our money's worth. To steal a line from a hotel chain's ads- "The extras aren't extra." I would highly recommend Abe's to anyone.

Charles & Sandy are wonderful hosts of this special place. Charles is an artist and potter who is happy to share his studio with guests. Sandy makes a wonderful breakfast and is a super hostess. Together they share their beautiful home and surroundings with those of us fortunate enough to stay here

My wife and I stayed at Abe's for her birthday with another couple. We had a remarkable time. The proprietors are very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious both mornings! The hot tub and sauna on the premises was superb! We had a very relaxing and enjoying weekend filled with wine tastings, massages and seeing the gorgeous sites that Galena offers in the Autumn. Our guest suite was very charming and spacious. We booked a birthday package and I was contacted to ask what kind of cake we would like for my wife's birthday. It was made next door at the Galena Bakery (I think that's the name) and it was delicious and offered lots to share. I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking to get away and enjoy themselves.

Took my BFF for a surprise getaway after her chemo. I researched B&B's, and kept coming back to Abe's Spring Street, boy am I glad I did. Sandy & Charles are the perfect hosts. Rudolphs Retreat room was wonderful. Very cozy, fireplace, king size bed, too many plus's to mention. Did the glaze&graze, just awsome. Sandy's breakfast's were amazing. The sculptures & pottery were breathtaking. Will stay again. Thanks Sandy & Charles, and of course Oreo.

I cannot recommend Abe's enough. My wife and I stayed in Rudolph's Retreat and got some fantastic rest, enjoyed leisurely walks over to Main St. and had some great breakfasts each morning. I used to go up to Galena for skiing and had never enjoyed the downtown and now can't wait to go back again to enjoy some of the wineries as well as another weekend at Abe's.
