Our stay at this charming little BnB was very enjoyable. Our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Craig was most helpful in explaining the specialties of nearby restaurants helping us to choose the perfect spot for dinner. Its hard to put a finger on it but, during breakfast, the interaction between Craig and Leslie was so fluent and effortless it seemed almost magical. They truly love what they are doing and the respect and love they have for each other made for one of the sweetest memories of our trip.

Comfortable, lovely and convenient

This is a great place to stay in Galena - it's a very easy walk to Main Street so you never have to worry about parking. My room was delightful - very comfortable, and the breakfast is ample and tasty. The innkeepers are friendly and very knowledgeable about Galena and its history. I would happily stay here again!
