Lovely old home furnished with period pieces. Only 1 block from main street and could walk everywhere. The price was right, the meals were delicious and the home is exquisite. I will stay there again next time i visit Galena.

Enjoyed having a sitting room available to stay in from the cold. The hostess was very welcoming. We would stay here again.

Our stay far exceeded my expectations for our first time staying in a B & B. Host and Hostess were friendly and helpful but not in your space at all and definitely have the gift of hospitality. The breakfast table was set beautifully taking full advantage of fine china and silver service. The food was tasty and nicely presented. Our room was clean and provided all of the comforts needed to relax after a day of shopping or scouting around Galena. We would definitely stay there again.

We had a two day and one night stay in Galena. We wanted a place with parking and within walking distance of Main Street. This B&B was the perfect place and the room was fabulous. The breakfast was delicious and it was nice to visit with Mike and Lyn. We would definitely stay here again.
