My wife and I stayed at the Queen Anne’s just after New Years 2018, and we had a fantastic time! Mike was friendly and welcoming and had a very streamlined process for setting us up with a key to our room. The location could not be better for walking to downtown Galena; once we parked at the Queen Anne we barely needed to move our car! Each morning, Mike set us up with some of the most out-of-this-world breakfasts that I have ever seen. These breakfasts looked like something you’d be served in a 5-star restaurant in New York! The Queen Anne boasts a collection of interesting books about the history of Galena, and they also have quite the movie collection for those cold wintry nights after a night on the town. Mike was great, the location was perfect, and the house itself was very cozy. I’d definitely recommend staying at the Queen Anne! The one caveat of which we were unaware when booking the room is that they have a pet cat. Mike asked we had allergies, and then promised the cat would be kept away from the rooms until we departed, however my allergies were still pretty bad throughout the stay. If you aren’t allergic to cats, I’d say that it doesn’t get better than this in Galena! Tony and Sharon

The Queen Anne guest house is a dream! My husband and I came here for our birthdays and really enjoyed our stay here. The house is gorgeous and welcoming. Mike is an excellent host, very personable, and makes the most delicious breakfasts! You simply cannot beat the value. We felt very taken care of here. Will definitely be returning!

I chose the Queen Anne Guest House with my friend (who happens to be named Anne) in mind for her first true Bed and Breakfast experience. We had a great time, the rooms were spacious, and we had a wonderful breakfast with Mike, one of the owners. It was everything you'd want in a bed and breakfast experience and more.

We had a very nice time at the Queen Anne Guest House. The owner was very thorough and you could tell took a lot of pride in his home/business. It was very charming and only a short walk to the Main St. It was nice to be a little bit off the beaten path, but yet have a quick walk to downtown. I do think the only reason we were able to still make a reservation over a holiday weekend was because they don't offer online reservations. I do think that would increase their patronage, but if that's not a concern, they are probably just fine continuing to do business as they do.

Our Innkeeper, Mike provided wonderful gourmet meals at a beautifully set table. He also provided a get together snack at 5:00 pm each day. It was fun to break the ice with other guests and share interesting ideas on local activities and such. Rooms were spacious and very clean. It was nice having a private bath. The morning coffee bar on the second floor was a real treat for people who need a few cups to prepare for the day. We will definitely return and refer all our friends.
