We just returned from a 3-night stay at Farmers' Guest House. On our next trip to the Galena area we will definitely stay there again. The food was a gourmet's dream--all homemade and delicious. There was even a cookie jar with yummy treats. The rooms were charming. The lovely garden area and the sitting rooms were spacious and homey. The owners, Susan and Don, helped lodgers with restaurant and entertainment reservations. Definitely a 5 star lodging!!!

Don and Susan were great and very helpful in planning where to eat and what to see. Loved being served a very delicious breakfast that Susan made. Met some very nice people too. Would recommend staying here.

Don & Susan are wonderful! They make you feel at home. They have delicious home made breakfasts with generous portions and go out of their way to provide for special diets! The wine, cheese and crackers, beverages and cookies are a plus :)

The room was very clean and comfortably updated, and the historic building was delightful to explore. Freshly-baked cookies and wine time were nice hospitality touches. The breakfasts were varied and delicious. Don and Susan had a lot of information about Galena and area activities. We greatly enjoyed our stay and will return.

Charming and friendly place to stay. We loved the beautiful accommodations, which were right around the corner from historic downtown Galena. The B&B innkeepers made sure our stay was perfect. We enjoyed the wine and cheese time and the delicious breakfast. The room was spacious and perfectly clean!

Had an extremely enjoyable experience at Farmer's Guest House. Breakfast and service was excellent, owners and staff made us feel at home and provided a luxurious experience we've never had at other B&B's. We will definitely be back.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Farmer's Guest House and we couldn't have been happier with the experience. We have been going for several years now and each time is still a delight. The whole house is warm and inviting and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The food was excellent – my wife loved the Strawberry French Toast but I loved the Mushroom and Egg Flatbread. Susan and Don went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and that we had everything we needed (from dietary restrictions to making dinner reservations to local attractions). I would recommend the Farmer’s Guest House to anyone looking for a relaxing and very enjoyable weekend away. We always feel welcome and we've already booked our next stay!

We can't say enough about Don and Susan and their hospitality. We have never stayed at a bed and breakfast and would never stay at a hotel again if given a choice. Wonderful company and conversation. Spacious cottage with jacuzzi. Delicious homemade breakfasts, cookies always in the jar, frig with soda and water. Great resource to Galena activities. They were so warm and welcoming. Thank you Don and Susan

This is a lovely place to stay! They innkeepers, Sue and Don, are wonderful. I felt like I was at home even when I was over 200 miles away. They do the best they can to give you discounts or gift cards to make the stay more affordable. The breakfast was amazing every morning and are more than willing to make something that you will eat. I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend to anyone!
