Wake up each morning to the smell of your gourmet breakfast being prepared by our owner/chef Susan Steffan, the “The Breakfast Diva” and winner of an episode on Food Network’s Holiday Baking Championship! She’ll gladly accommodate special dietary requests, including gluten free and vegetarian options.

At 5 p.m., we’ll uncork a bottle of white or red, and you can take your glass to your room, to our courtyard, or stay in our spacious dining room. Farmers Guest House is a historic treasure in the heart of downtown Galena, and we invite you for a relaxing experience. Our comfortable bed and breakfast offers nine accommodations. Each of our rooms feature vintage pieces and original hardwood floors combined with today’s luxuries - we're sure you’ll feel relaxed in our whirlpool tubs and large showers. We are here to provide you with the best possible Galena experience.

A last minute stop in Galena and first B&B we walked into. The owners were wonderful and easy to talk to from the get go. Had a wonderful stay and a beautiful and cozy B&B. The much needed stay was worth every penny. Wonderful breakfast each morning and better than most 5 star hotels. Will stay there again!

Our favorite place to stay in Galena and our whole group already booked for next year. Owners are wonderful and very accommodating! Wine time at 5:00 is a lot of fun. Would definitely recommend this B&B.

My husband and I decided to take a short getaway and I've been wanting to visit Galena for several years now. The Farmers Guest House was by far our favorite B&B that we've stayed at. Susan and Don are wonderful hosts and their B&B is extremely warm and cozy and beautifully decorated. The breakfast that is served is beyond amazing....we will come back and stay for more than one night!

We had a fabulous experience at FGH leaving us wanting to return soon. The amenities of FGH make it a destination instead of just a place to stay. We will return to Galena to visit FGH--the shops in town are nice but my breakfast at this inn is well worth the drive. Don and Susan welcome you, check on your special dietary needs, provide a 5-star breakfast and make you eager to return. Love this place!

We had a lovely, well cared for room in the guest house. The house is beautifully updated and Susan and Don are wonderful hosts. I notified Susan that I am gluten free due to celiac disease and she went out of her way to prepare me special gluten free french toast, a special gluten free scone and gluten free chocolate chip cookies, all of which were outstanding. I have never been treated so well anywhere else. Susan (the breakfast DIVA), is a wonderful cook and the non-gluten-free breakfast was also excellent. Many thanks to Susan and Don for a wonderful visit.

Tagged along with hubby on an out of town business trip hoping for little together time...He surprised me with a three night stay in the Charlotte Suite at this wonderful bed and breakfast. The accommodations were great and the hosts, Susan and Don, and the staff, Charles and Lisa were an absolute delight. Breakfast every morning was a culinary treat and service was exemplary. Within walking distance of everything in town. Great recommendations for shopping, antiquing, food were spot on. President Grant's Home and museum, Field of Dreams movie location and the magic show were amazing! Galena exceeded all expectations. A beautiful town, a great B&B, and very welcoming people! I look forward to visiting again! Even with so many B& B's in Galena, I would still stay at the Farmer's Guest House!

My wife & I have stayed here twice. Back in Nov. of 2013 for thanksgiving we were actually engaged here and this past week it was for my wife's birthday. Both times have been so wonderful. Can't beat the hospitality. Susan and Don made us feel like family. You will never regret making your stay here!

I'm so impressed by this place I wrote the same thing on Trip Advisor! My husband surprised me with a two-night stay for my 40th birthday. We had such a wonderful time I was planning our next trip on the way home. Susan and Don’s warm hospitality and amazing breakfast was simply the best. Our room was quiet, spacious, cozy and very private. Wine time was fun getting to know the other guests and the best places for dinner, to tour, etc. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to any couple or mother-daughter duo of any age!
