Motorcycle Trip

3.8 on July 25, 2012

We don't stay in many B & B's but were pleased with our stay at Annie Wiggins. Wendy was so welcoming and friendly and a wealth of knowledge. She also was willing to share her interest and participation in Civil War Re-enactments. We had a wonderful time and the house was so beautiful. We are already planning a trip back to Galena.


The Worst !

4.0 on September 18, 2011

This was absolutely the worst experience I have ever had in my life. When my fiancee and I arived to Annie Wiggins we were greeted by the innkeepers. Only to learn that the Annabella room that we selected was infested with bugs, starting with a bug on the bed, then one on the toilet. Later that evening a bug was found in the jacuzzi. We did everything we could to make this a great stay. The next morning during breakfast, another bug was in the jacuzzi. Then as we anxiously trotted to breakfast, we were served pork sausage, and crepes. My fiancee does not have any allegies to food but I do, and the inn keeper stated " You should have told me". Later, after breakfast I asked to speak to her privately and learned that she was not the owner. When the owner arrived, I expressed my concerns regarding the bugs, and not having a choice for breakfast she replied " You do have a choice not to eat, and that I wa being completely unreasonable abou the bug situation. She requested that we check out that day and she would refund the money for day 2. I don't recommend this location because of the bugs and the lack of interpersonal skills.


A fantastic relaxing, beautiful, and exciting B & B!

We arrived without a reservation and were sincerely welcomed by the innkeeper for a three night stay. The innkeeper was very knowledgable about the house, events in the area, and restaurant recommendations. The house, porches, and our room were beautifully maintained and decorated with period and autumn accessories. Morning breakfast, afternoon brandy, and freshly baked cookies in the evening were extraordinarilly delicous! We are already planning our return visit and are recommending the place to our friends.

Relaxing and Beautiful

Our 21st wedding anniversary was just perfect thanks to Wendy (owner). We felt so at home in the beautiful old house. Breakfast was absolutely worth getting up for. Our room was even better in person than the great pictures online.


WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

4.0 on February 01, 2008

My husband and I stood at this beautifully kept B&B for our honeymooon back in June 2007. It was a wonderful experience! Wendy, the innkeeper, was so helpful and friendly. We stayed in a room toward the back of the house and had a private entrance with our own sitting area outside. The linens and little trinkets finish this room off. And the breakfast..... to die for! Wendy really goes all out for her guests. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and so did my husband. We will definitely be going back!
