Thanks Mike for a nice time. We stayed in the Lady Ashley room. The bed was a bit too soft for me, but the Jacuzzi tub, TV, and breakfast was great. There is a good selection of clean movies available to use. We met some nice people from Iowa that were also staying there. Mike gave us a good overview of restaurants and things to do in Galena. Celebrated my wife's birthday and walked the 191 steps up to the old High School. Nice relaxing time.


Mother Daughters time at Queen Anne

5 on February 22, 2016

Our 87 year old mother had never stayed at a B&B. My sister and I decided to take mom to the Queen Anne and we were not disappointed! Mike is an exceptional innskeeper! Our room was perfect for the three of us. Breakfast both mornings was delicious and portions were very generous. Mike is very knowledgeable about where to find anything we were looking for during our stay in Galena. The history of the house was enchanting. It was evident Mike and Anita did their research when decorating the house. The victorian decor throughout the house was delightful. We'll definitely be back! All the way home mom didn't stop talking about what a wonderful experience she had!


Romantic Getaway

A trip of firsts

4.8 on January 20, 2016

This was our first trip to Galena and first stay at a B&B. Queen Anne far exceeded any expectations we had. The house was absolutely beautiful with so much history, but still had all the modern day convinces of electric fireplaces, free wifi and premium cable tv. The breakfasts every morning were absolutely delicious. The house is a quick 10 minute walk away from the main street of Galena. There is even a pedestrian bridge right outside the house. We are already looking forward to another trip to Galena and to Queen Anne. I would highly recommend.


Good stay, but not blown away

We enjoyed our stay at the Queen Anne, but we were not hugely impressed by the food. Our first morning was a very sweet breakfast and the second was a mediocre egg dish. The room was lovely with a nice bathtub, and Mike provided friendly service.


Wonderful stay during Galena Luminaria Weekend

The Queen Anne is a beautiful B&B. Mike the owner is a tremendous host. I have already booked another stay.


Great Stay!

I stayed here for the Halloween weekend with my boyfriend. Mike and Anita were very hospitable and kind...the b&b was a beautifully decorated 1891 home. The breakfast each day was so good and conversations with the other couples was very nice. We stayed in the lady Ashley room with a Jacuzzi tub which does not have a shower as it stayed on the website...I love taking baths...if you are a bath person and want to soak with your sweetheart...then this is the room for you. Great price, great people and great b&b!


Another great stay
