My mom and I really enjoyed our stay at Farmer's Guest House. Susan and Don were friendly and welcoming. Susan was very accommodating in preparing breakfasts that worked with our food sensitivities. This is a wonderful place to relax and unwind!

We took off for Galena for a quick short getaway (October, 2013) hoping to get in some good hiking in fall colors. Horseshoe Bluffs was a great hike in the Mines of Spain just south of Dubuque, Iowa with a great view of the Mississippi and the Julien Dubuque Monument across the river. But the trip was made by our stay at Farmers' Guest House. It was unexpected that the lodging would be the highlight. We had three gourmet breakfasts; no silly buffet or choice of omelet but a fancy delicious fruit dish with some great piece of pastry followed by a delicious warm entree with fresh sausage presented as competition for Master Chef. Susan's breakfasts can't be beat. The ten person table, plus overflow tables for the "late comers", made for great conversation about yesterday's happenings and today's plans. Then came happy hour, when Susan and Don served wine and cheese and we guests gathered around the table for more discussion of the day's experience and tomorrow's plans as Don made dinner reservations for those too lazy to do it earlier. The mingling of the owners and the guests created a fun conversation environment to discover all of the coincidences in social gatherings and always had someone with "that" sense of humor to generate the laughs. For those needing precision: Breakfast is served from 8:30 AM to 9:30 and Wine Happy Hour is from 5 PM to 6. Plan your schedule around those times. The House is a short walk to town, maybe 8 minutes to the beginning of Mains St and another 10 to the end of Restaurant Row. The walk requires an elevation change up 40 feet on a ramp and back down 40 feet via steps. This is an easy walk unless you have walking problems. It is a 5 minute drive with parking in town being the challenge depending on day of week and time of year.

Thank you to Don and Susan and Charles for a great experience at our first bed and breakfast. We absolutely enjoyed our 18th wedding anniversary at the Farmers Guest House. Breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed conversations during breakfast and wine time. It was great to meet others from all around the area. We will definitely be back and will tell all of our friends and family!!

We stayed two nights for a pre-wedding get away and Susan and Don could not have been more welcoming! The common areas were inviting....our room was comfortable and cozy. Coffee, water and soda available at all times and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious! This was the first time we had stayed at a B & B and we will be back! Thanks to Susan and Don (and Charles) for a wonderful time!

We are frequent visitors to Galena, but had never stayed at the Farmers Guest House. We've admired it for years and finally decided to book a couple nights. What a fabulous place! From the moment we walked in the door we felt welcomed and at home. Our room was beautiful and cozy as well as comfortable. Breakfast was excellent both days. We enjoyed being so close to downtown. It was a 5 minute walk to Main Street. The hospitality was top notch and the entire guest house was impeccably clean. We were very impressed with the original hardwood floors throughout the house. What a beautiful, well maintained! We look forward to returning to soon!

My husband and I were first timers at a bed and breakfast, and we picked the right one to start with! We stayed in the Annie Lloyd cottage, very quiet and relaxing. Jess and Kathie were warm, welcoming hosts. The breakfast was delicious. As we drove away I asked my husband, "When can we come back?" I know we will stay here again!

We stayed in the Annie Lloyd Cottage behind the inn. Kathie and Jess have made the entire inn a warm, inviting experience. A delicious breakfast each morning. Kathie is very knowledgeable about Galena and has great answers to your questions. They were just finishing up decorating for Christmas and it really put us in the holiday spirit. It would be an excellent place to stay for couples or even a group. Town is a short walk so the location is very convienent. Thank you Kathie, Jess, and Charles!

Farmers' Guest House is a friendly, welcoming place with lots of room to gather with traveling companions and fellow guests. The rooms are charming and comfortable ( those of us with a Jacuzzi tub in the room found it very relaxing after a day of sightseeing and shopping!) Kathie and Jess treat you like family from the start and offer anything needed, from a warm robe to restaurant suggestions. We were a group of sisters there with our mom on her 80th birthday, but it is a great place for couples as well.

We had such a wonderful time celebrating our mini-moon (right after our wedding, 3 weeks before our honeymoon) here. We had the cottage all to ourselves and really enjoyed how cozy and welcoming it was! The wine and cheese each night at 6 is a delicious start to the evening, and breakfast was soo good and well-rounded. Jess and Kathie were very hospitable and sure to introduce us to anyone in the dining area while we were there. Also, Galena is lovely and gave us plenty to do and explore for three days. We highly recommend the Farmers Guest House to anyone interested in a weekend (or week) away in cozy, friendly accommodations!

Stayed in Annie Lloyd Cottage. It's plenty big and everything including the room was extermely clean. It's a nice little walk to downtown but it does include a hill and/or steps. Free cookies and pop in the main room were great. The rooms you can see on the site and they looked a little bigger in person in my opinion. Most rooms are upstairs and you will have to carry luggage up a fairly steep and narrow staircase so just be aware. There are no microwaves or refridgerators in the rooms which is common for B&Bs. There is a open fridge in the dining hall. The biggest suprise for me was the social aspect. They do wine and cheese at 6pm every night and it's not big (one white and one red with some crackers and cheese) but it was great to sit and talk with the others. Kathie sat down and was just a wealth of information about the town and was great to talk to. In no time we were talking with everyone and it was just more friendly than the last B&B we were at. Kathie and Jess are both extermely friendly and helpful. The breakfest was excellent but just be aware you don't have a wide varity of options. It's on the main road but unless you are right in front you won't hear anything. There are several places to sit near the gardens in back. Really nice property all around. Our bed was very comfortable. Cottage had a bit more wear than the pictures show but it didn't bother me because it was very clean and well decorated. In my opinion it would be hard to be this experience for a B&B in town.

Okay We stayed in the DePaul room and it was so neat and clean! The whole house is filled with cutie little pictures of all the guests that stayed there. The breakfast was good and the coffee was hot. The owners Jess and Kathie are so welcoming and very informative about all the happenings in Galena, Past & Present. So check out this comfy place you wont be sorry. Also take the path across the street and that is a short cut into town. We walked the whole time and did not have to fight for a parking spot on main street. Again we had a great stay, On every review we have done we have to tell everyone about Kathie's cookies in the dining area they are sooooo good! look in the rectangle White cookie jar. It looks like a decoration but it's not. They told us if you find it and its edible eat it. So we did, we had about 10 to 15 between the two of us Shhhhhhhhh........ Thanks Again- Robert and Jacqueline Mueller 8-12-11/8-14-11

Jess & Kathie make you feel at home from the minute you walk in the door. The breakfast is always homemade and delicious. Rooms are super clean and decorated just beautifully. We had a fireplace in our room. Very nice bathrooms and nice big towels. We've stayed there twice now, each time in a different room and loved both of them. We would not stay anywhere else in Galena.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Kathie and Jess provide many little extras that made us really feel welcome. The full breakfast was excellent every day and they made adjustments for my food allergy.

I needed a relaxing vacation and would highly recommend the Camelot room.

We had a nice time just sitting and conversing with our hosts. We cannot wait to go back!!

My husband and I came back to Galena after about 9 years of our last visit. Our stay at the Farmer's was our first. We chose "Pete and Elenor's" room for my birthday stay and found it to very comfortable. Located right off the main dining area, it was accesible to the ice machine, the wine glasses, free bottle water, soda and treats that Kathie and Jess leave throughout the day for the guests to enjoy. The whirpool in suite is fantastic as well as an private door the outside. Kathie warm and geniune care allows for the guests to chat easily, as does Charles, their one full time employee who is on task making sure your comfortable! Located right on Spring street, the only minor complaint would be the rumble of the trucks, not so much noisy...just a heavy rumble as they cruised by....not enough to ruin our trip by any means. They have a plethora of DVDs to watch, as well as CDs. Kathie is very knowledagle about her town and will direct you whatever your pleasure may be..A super easy walk up the hill and then down to the shops, we did not drive anywhere parking our car and leaving it until departure.

We loved staying at the Farmers Guest House! Jess and Kathie and the rest of their crew are as warm and wonderful as any folks you will ever find. We would definitely stay with them again when we are in the Midwest. The guest house is chock-a-block with clocks, curios and nooks and crannies to visually entertain you. It is also within walking distance of the main street and all the great shops and restaurants in the heart ofGalena. Be sure to take the trolley tour to get your bearings and learn about all the history that the town has in abundance. Fritz and Frites and 101 Main Street are both highly recommended eateries and Fibre Wild is a top-notch knitting shop. In short, go to Galena. Stay with Kathie and Jess. Shop. Eat. Relax in a place that has escaped the harried pace of modern life.

We truly loved our stay at Farmers' Guest House. In fact, my parents and fiance and I all agreed that we would definitely stay at this B&B again, without even considering any other hotels/B&Bs in Galena. Jess, Kathie and Charlie are all so welcoming and personable. They have great, honest recommendations for anything you'd want to do, see, eat, etc. The atmosphere is very welcoming and comfortable. In fact, one night we all gathered downstairs and watched a movie in the common room. The breakfasts are great, and the wine and cheese every night is a great perk, too! My fiance loved the 24/7 fully stocked cookie jar. The hotel location is great. It's within short walking distance to all of the main attractions in Galena, and there's free parking, too. The rooms were wonderfully decorated, and so welcoming. We did not want to leave, and we'll definitely be back!

Several of my newly retired colleagues and I enjoyed a relaxing escape for 3 days and 2 nights with Kathie and Jess. Although our rooms with private baths were terrific, we chose to spend our down time in their homey great room. The comfy couches and movie selection kept us entertained and there were beverages and cookies available at will. The breakfasts were delicious - right down to freshly picked raspberries! We enjoyed looking at the antiques that decorated this wonderful B & B. It was truly a great way to celebrate a new phase in our lives. Thanks for your hospitality, Jess and Kathie! I'd love to stay again.

We found this guest house by pure luck and loved it so much we decided to stay for two nights instead of one. It's run by a lovely couple but the real star is Kathie who is so friendly and warm and makes you feel very welcome. The guest house is chintzy and quirky in a really lovely way. Each room is slightly different but with stripped floor boards, flowery wallpaper and gorgeous throws and cushions it's difficult to decide which one to have. The guest house is in easy walking distance of the town with access to canoe trips, bars, restaurants and shops. We loved it and would happily return any day.

What a great place and what great hosts!!! Our hosts, Jess and Kathie, treated us to an exceptional experience at their first-rate B & B in Galena, Illinois. The accommodations were superior; the rooms delightfully appointed and wonderfully comfortable, and the food--well, Kathie is a hidden treasure, a wonderful cook who is not only skilled but very creative. With their knowledge of the Napa area in California, their wine choices are unparalleled--this quality matches their hospitality. If you're going to Galena for some first-rate shopping, book your stay at the Farmers' Guest House. You'll be happy you did. Jess & Kathie may begin your stay as special hosts, but by the time you're leaving, they'll be your friends. Once you've stayed at their B & B, you won't look to stay anywhere else in the Galena, Dubuque area.

We love staying at bed and breakfasts and find them all to have their unique qualities. Farmer’s House is one of the best. Jess and Kathie make this b&b delightful. They are so warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. We were in Pete & Eleanor’s Room which was an immaculate, huge suite with a fireplace, sofa, TV, etc., king-size bed, Jacuzzi, wonderful linens, and skylights. We are early risers, so we enjoyed the light coming into the room. Kathie is a unique decorator, and her love of family and friends is present in all rooms. My husband loved the filled cookie jars, and there were also complementary waters, pop, and snacks available at all times. Wine and cheese in the early evening was a treat. We also enjoyed the 5-minute walk to town without having to traverse the Galena hills. Breakfasts were delightful. We always like visiting with the innkeepers and other guests. Everyone was so nice. The first morning the entrée was eggs with salsa and the following morning we had the Swedish pancake. Both were served with fruit in yogurt, coffee cake, muffins, juice, coffee, etc. Very satisfying. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before we can return to The Farmer’s Guest House.

Shortly after we arrived, they provided wine and cheese for all of the guests. When Kathi found out that we wanted to dine at a restaurant that recommends reservations, she immediately called the restaurant and we had a table when we arrived. This will be our B&B of choice when staying in the Galena area. Highly recommend!!

We had a wonderful experience at the Farmer's Guest House in Galena, IL. Kathie and Jess put a lot to loving effort into the pleasant stay that we had. The room was nice, comfortable and well laid out. We stayed in the Camelot suite. The suite had a foyer that had a dressing table, a coffee and tea service area. The bathroom with whirlpool Jacuzzi was off of this room then the bedroom was just past the foyer. It was seperated by doors so I could go and use the whirlpool bath while my girlfriend slept in the bedroom. The breakfast's served were homemade and were really good. One morning we had a stuffed french toast the next morning we had a egg and cheese casserole. Both were really good. Also, they had yogurt, granola, fresh fruit, muffins, fresh coffee. At all times they had bottled water, some soda and homemade cookies and breads. It was a delightful place to kick back and relax. A perfect location near downtown so we could walk to all the restraunts and shops. I'll be back!

I especially enjoyed sharing a glass of wine in the evening and meeting new people.

The Inn itself was very quiet and relaxing and I wish I had more than 2 days to unwind.

Kathie and Jess provide a warm, inviting experience at the Farmers Guest House. They are knowledgeable about what Galena and the surrounding area have to offer visitors. The rooms are very comfortable with large, yet cozy beds. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious, but they are very accommodating to personal preferences or dietary needs. At the Farmers Guest House, it is the attention to details that made this such a warm, relaxing experience. My only frustration was that the outdoor hot tub had a leak in it so we couldn't enjoy that as part of our getaway. This was our first B & B experience, but it won't be our last. Jess and Kathie set the standard pretty high for future experiences. Thanks!!

What a wonderful Bed and Breakfast. The Innkeepers are the best and are always there to help you with whatever you need to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We would definately stay there again.

I have enjoyed taking myself and my boyfriend here three times now. They always make our trip special and unique. We find that the service is beyond outstanding. They are incredibly hospitable and make your stay feel like you just came home. They provide delicious breakfasts and cookies 24/7 as well as have a wine hour which is more of a chance to meet interesting and wonderful people that come to visit this artistic community.

My wife and I were celebrating our marriage just a day earlier and we weren't too impressed. The innkeepers are nice and helpful but the food wasn't all that great. We were served eggs with spicy peppers that made us both sick all day and was not worth it. The cookie jar is great but save your money and find a better place. Just average.

The room was great, roomy, homey, comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and filling. But the best part was the people. The owners, Kathie and Jeff, are perfects hosts. They treat you like family. Imagine warm chocolate cookies straight from the oven, just because we happened to be there. Other people there, Carol and Charles, were very personable also, and happy to make sure we had our needs met. We enjoyed the company of the other guests at the inn who shared their favorite sites and rerstaurants as well. We even shared a dinner out one evening with some of the other guests. All in all, a great place to stay for comfort and warmth.

Kathie and Jess were wonderful and made us feel "at home." Very friendly and helpful. Within walking distance to historic Galena, shopping and great restaurants. Wine and cheese before dinner and a bottomless cookie jar! The breakfast was delicious and they even shared the recipe. Our room was comfortable and immaculate as was every room in the INN. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay and will definitely come back.

This is a wonderful place to go if you want to just get away for a night. The owners, Kathie and Jess, are so comfortable to talk to and such gracious hosts. The room was tidy and decorated so tastefully. We loved the jacuzzi tub being in our suite, that made it so romantic. Also , a great location, very close walking distance to the main street. Would definently recommend this to friends!

My husband and I desparately needed to get away from the stress of everyday life and had heard from friends that Galena was great. I spent weeks of researching bed and breakfasts in the area and even called to speak with Kathy. It was definitely worth my time and effort because we such a great time that we extended our stay. We stayed in the Annie Lloyd's cottage which gave us a great amount of privacy yet we still could meet new people and sample Jess' breakfast delight of the day. The bed was wonderfully soft, the in-suite fireplace cozy, the in-suite whirlpool was relaxing and the "in-room" couples massages were phenomenal and economical. To boot the staff treated you like family. Kathy and Jess are great........... and we will definitely be back!!!!!

We stayed at the Farmers Guest House in Galena, Illinois for four nights in early April, 2009 in the Pete and Eleanor's Room. The Pete and Eleanor's Room is a two room suite right next to the dining room. It has a whirlpool tub and king size bed in the main room and a pullout queen size bed and fireplace in the other room. Each room had a TV and DVD player. Our kids used the pullout bed, which had a thick, queen-sized mattress with a pillow top that was as comfortable as any mattress on a regular bed. The entire inn was tastefully decorated with the most interesting items beautifully arranged in a pleasing manner. It had a rustic, cozy atmosphere to match the feel of the town. The inn had plenty of room to visit with other guests, or to hide and read a book in one of the sitting rooms. When we arrived, Kathie and Jess welcomed us like family. Throughout our stay, they seemingly anticipated our every need. They were very knowledgeable about the area and had brochures for all the highlights. The cookie jars were stocked, and the refrigerator had sodas and bottled water at all hours. Every evening at 6:00 they served wine and cheese with crackers - a pure delight! The breakfasts were sumptuous - we were so well fed that we never ate lunch throughout our stay (not even the kids). When it was time to go, we felt like we were leaving friends in Kathie and Jess, who were hospitable and kind without ever intruding. They made our stay a pure pleasure. Galena was to be a one-time trip for us, but now we'd like to go back just to stay at the Farmers Guest House. We've also recommended Farmers Guest House to all of our friends. It definitely exceeded all of our expectations.

My daughter and I went for a "girls' weekend" and had a wonderful time. The room was spacious, very clean and all amenities were provided. Kathie is a wonderful hostess. She gave us great suggestions for restaurants and shops, and she even made reservations for us. The location of the inn is perfect-walking distance to anywhere downtown. Breakfasts were plentiful and excellent.

We spent the night at the Farmers Guest House and was not disappointed in the least. We enjoyed a two-room suite with a private bath. Close to downtown (walking distance) where the dining experiences are varied and excellent. Jess and Kathie are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed the outdoor hot tub, a comfortable bed, a tasty breakfast, and some really nice touches (fresh baked cookies, water and soda, etc). If we could change one thing, it would be the parking - it's close, but on the other side of the highway. A very minor issue. All in all, we would recommend this B&B!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Farmer's Guset House in Galena, Illinois for a weekend get away and we WERE BLOWN AWAY! Words cannot describe the amount of joy and love we felt thanks to our hosts Jess and Kathie. From the moment we checked in we felt welcomed and right at home. The stay was wonderful. In fact, my wife is planning our next visit. Thank you so much for the experience! Chad and Melissa Pelley

Farmers' Guest House is the cutest B&B I've ever visited. The proprietors Jess & Kathie are lovely and they've created a beautiful spot relaxation and romance. We were greeted with a wine and cheese happy hour and then walked to the nearby downtown for a delicious dinner at 11th and Main. The next day we went snowboarding and then recovered with a soak in the jacuzzi tub and an in-room couples massage. It was heavenly. I was sad to say goodbye to Jess, Kathie and their little piece of paradise. We can't wait to visit again.

We can't wait to go back!

What else can I say? The Camelot Suite was absolutely wonderful. The decor is beautiful and my wife LOVED the miniature shoe collection.....very romantic touch. The front parlor adds a nice touch and the dressing table is gorgeous and also useful. The bath is compact yet very sufficient and the spacious whirlpool is very comfortable for two. Lastly, the bed is one of a kind; a wrought steel sleigh bed that is magnificent with an unbelievably comfortable mattress. Four windows in the main bedroom and two more in the parlor let plenty of natural light in, yet the custom wood blinds adjust for privacy too. And this is just the Camelot Suite! The rest of the B&B is tastefully decorated consistent with the period the structure was built. All the common spaces are very inviting and they just beg to be used. Several are stocked with goodies which we found to be a real treat. Jess and Kathie are very attentive hosts and were quick to help with anything we needed. The 6:00 pm wine and cheese tasting was fun and gave us an opportunity to learn some of the B&B's history from Kathie. The breakfast was wonderful and plentiful; no going hungry at the Farmers Guest House. My only regret was that we could not stay longer! If you want to pamper and impress that special someone in your life with a quiet, romantic, and intimate getaway to a small town richly steeped in history, you cannot go wrong staying here. The Farmers Guest House truly is a hidden jewel and we can hardly wait to go back and visit again soon! B & E Minneapolis, MN

We stayed in the Annie Lloyd Cottage right after Christmas, and we loved every minute of it! Kathie and Jess went out of their way to make sure we felt at home, and the breakfast in the morning is to die for!!! My husband and I really enjoyed and can't wait to come back with our friends.

Kathie and Jess are the best hosts. They always make you feel so welcome when you walk in the door. We have been here several times before and always have a fantastic time. We enjoy the breakfasts each morning as well as the wine and cheese each evening at 6:00. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a great experience in a beutiful B&B

Our stay at the Farmer's Guest House was extraordinary! Galena is such a beautiful and historic town there is always a new treasure to find. The Annie Lloyd Cottage is a gem on top of the hill located behind the Guest House. Two levels with a fireplace, an in door whirlpool and outdoor hot tub, I only regret I didn't plan to stay in the room longer. Galena is pretty anytime of the year but with snow and decorations the town is truly a Winter Wonderland. We were fortunate to have visited during the Night of Luminaria with 5,000 candles lining the sidewalks, river banks, bridges and parks. Proprietors Jess and Kathy saw to our every needs, served wonderful breakfasts and afternoon treats, and served double duty as volunteers to light the candles. Incredible decorations and amazing visual displays festoon the Guest House. You could spend hours just taking it all in. While Christmastime at the Farmer's Guest House has all the magic of a storybook holiday, I can't wait to go back in the summer or fall and spend more time to enjoy the peaceful surroundings and wonderful accomodations.

My wife and I absolutely loved our stay at the Farmers' Guest House! We stayed in Annie Lloyd's cottage for two nights and then moved to the Pete and Eleanor Suite due to availability of the room. Both rooms were absolutely amazing. They were very well decorated and well-kept. The beds were very comfortable. The keepers of the B&B, Jess and Kathie, were incredible. They helped us to find great restaraunts in the area and recommended spots for other activities. We wanted to do some cross country skiing and Kathie, without even thinking about it, gave us the name of an outfiter in the area that could rent us the equipment. Overall, our stay was very romantic and we ate very very well the entire time we were in town. We definitely recommend this inn to everyone!

The accommodations are tip top, and the breakfasts are delicious. Wine and cheese in the evening are a treat after shopping and walking around Galena. The unlimited cookie jars, along with soda and water, are also a welcome treat. Would definitely stay there again and would also recommend to family and friends. The conversations with Jess, Kathie, Charles, and all the other guests were delightful and informative.

We had the chance for a weekend getaway and even though the weather was cold, Farmer's Guest House was very warm and welcoming.

The breakfasts were yummy and it was nice to have continual access to cookies and water or soda. That's a nice touch. Our room was so full of wonderful details and we could tell how much love and care goes into Farmers Guest House. Jess, Kathy and Charles are friendly and helpful. Thanks for a nice weekend getaway.

The decor is unique and seasonal. We definitely hope to make a return visit.

This guesthouse was exactly what I had expected after viewing their website. I loved the decor. The room was a bit small for the price but the breakfast was very tasty and the staff was very helpful. They even accommodated us when we wanted to carve our Jack-O-Lanterns in the backyard. The movie and game selection was great too.

This was by far the best B&B at which we've stayed. The breakfasts were delicious. The availability of water, soda, pretzels and/or cookies/sweet breads was an unexpected surprise. The wine and cheese hour was always fun and a great way to meet other guests. The "common" rooms were always available for relaxing and congregating with other guests if you desired and the crossword puzzles were a real common denominator among the guests. The innkeepers go above and beyond to make the guests feel comfortable and welcome. In addition, Kathie is more than willing to make dinner reservations, book trolley tours, or whatever you are interested in doing.

This was our second stay at the Farmers' Guest House, and it was just as good as the first. We stayed in Pete and Eleanor's Suite our first two nights and Annie Lloyd's Cottage the third night. Both are excellent. Both are tastefully decorated (Pete and Eleanor's is a little more country and old-fashioned feeling). P & E's is right next to the dining room, making it very convenient to get to the complimentary cookies and bread that are always available, and it is very spacious, also with its own private entrance to the outside. The Cottage is private and secluded in a wonderful setting surrounded by trees in the back. It has its own private decks. Both rooms were extremely clean, and you can control the climate in each. Both rooms also have a whirlpool tub, fireplace, two TV's and DVD players (in the bedroom and the sitting room area). The beds are comfortable with lots of pillows. I am pregnant, so a comfortable bed is a must for me, and I did not have a problem sleeping. The inn is very nicely decorated and clean. The breakfasts were fabulous, served from 8:30-9:30. We are late sleepers but did not have a problem getting out of bed in the mornings because we looked forward to the big breakfasts so much! They have an extensive DVD and CD collection for guests to choose from. They also have games and puzzles available. They have a refrigerator in the dining room with complimentary soda and water, as well as an ice maker. Wine and cheese are served each evening in the dining room at 6 p.m., and it's a great time to meet the other guests and talk. The inn is a short walk to downtown and easy to find. The best part about the inn is the owners, Kathie and Jess. They are extremely friendly and hospitable. They will call and make reservations for you, they offer advice on where to eat and what to do, and they are full of stories about the town and their own personal lives. They make you feel like family. We look forward to our next visit!

With so many inns to select from in Galena, deciding which one I wanted to stay in was a challenge. However, I am glad I chose Farmers Guest House. Not only is the location ideal, but the warm hospitality and Americana charm of this historic property combine to make this a B&B where guests feel a sense of relaxation the moment they arrive. Snacks and complimentary drinks are available throughout the day, wine is offered in the early evening, and a delicious breakfast is prepared each morning. The Annie Lloyd Cottage and Pete and Eleanor's Whirlpool Suite are especially nice and offer extra privacy, but all accommodations are clean and comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Farmer's Guest House, and I would definitely stay there again.

My wife was fortunate to have off during the week of April 14th. We decided at the last minute to do something to get away from everything and enjoy some time together. We talked about a few things and decided to visit Galena as it’s been over 15 years since we visited. We also never stayed at a B&B so we went on the internet to start searching. After several hours viewing many sites we narrowed our choices down to two. The designer for Farmers Guest House website did a fantastic job of all the details. We stayed in Pete and Eleanor’s room and could not have been happier, it was outstanding. We had a chance to “peek” into several other rooms when they weren’t occupied, all were beautiful. I especially loved the outdoor Jacuzzi first thing in the morning, we got lucky with the weather (I think we picked the nicest week of the year) and my wife joined me again in the evening. What sold me on Farmers’ was their quick response too our inquiry. Jess immediately called, answered all my questions and after our conversation we booked our room. That shows me how dedicated they are with their customers. The other B&B didn’t get back to me for 3 days (sorry to late). We basically had the place to ourselves as we went during the mid week and the other couples had to sadly head back. This was awesome because it gave us plenty of time to chat with Jess, Kathie and Charles. They made us feel like we were back home visiting family. They quickly became friends we will always remember. The location to downtown Galena was excellent, walking distance if you wanted. Shopping at this time of the year was another advantage. The stores had time to talk and make suggestions since the busy season has yet to start. For us this time of year was fantastic. Visit Galena and stay at Farmers’; you won’t be disappointed. There won’t be any searching the next time we decide to visit Galena! Love John & Donna

Our Euchre Card playing group of 18 needed a place with areas for ALL of us to gather, and the Farmer's Guesthouse met our needs! With their large dining room, we had plenty of space to play cards and do other group activities. We were all able to participate in the Murder Mystery Night, good fun had by all. We all loved the attention that was provided to the smallest details in decorating, in ALL of the rooms, whether they were bedrooms or just sitting rooms. Only complaint? Just wished that we could have stayed a few nights longer, and REALLY gotten into the relaxing part of being away.
