We stayed only one night but the proprietor graciously stayed up to meet us as we arrived very late. We loved her homemade toasting bread and strawberry rhubarb jam! Delicious breakfast and gracious home!

Each room has a story and we stayed in Regina Barbara's. The snow almost ruined our trip but Joan catered to our needs. She is an awesome cook. The house is beautifully decorated from bedrooms to basement. If you are looking for hospitality and antiquity both - this is the place to stay in.

My husband and I had a wonderful night at the Gallets' House - she graciously upgraded our room when someone else didn't show and the room was lovely and clean and quiet. Breakfast was delicious and filling and we had a nice dinner at the nearby Library restaurant and a lovely surprise with the nearby Rock City. All-in-all a wonderful weekend away from our kiddos.

We stayed at Gallets House last weekend and had a wonderful experience. Joan is a gracious hostess and made us feel like part of the family. Make sure you ask her about the history of the house. It's a great story.

My husband and I went to the Gallets House on our Honeymoon trip and we have been back three times in five years. The memories made at such a beautiful and wonderful place out in the country are just priceless. The rooms are cozy, comfortable, noise proof, clean, spacious and packed with everything a person would need, not to mention the nostalgic items from long ago of the family who once lived there add a special touch. The service is fantastic, anything we need or want is always taken care of, especially the delicious home-made breakfast made and served by Joan, the Innkeeper herself, and she asks if we would like more of everything, there is always a delicious snack put out and a cold drink or some tea or coffee for during the day! The price for everything here cannot be beat, it's worth every cent. The rooms and the entire place is so fresh and clean, I am amazed by all the work must be put into keeping this large house so clean all the time. We will be back next year to celebrate our anniversary again, I can't imagine going anywhere else.

My wife and I came to Olean/Allegany for my college reunion in June 2010. We were upgraded to a different room with a larger bed because of a cancellation which was very nice. Joan made us feel at home in her house immediately and our room was clean and comfortable. This was our first stay in a B&B and it was a whole different experience that hotels. Breakfast each day was very filling and had a nice home made touch to it. We highly recommend staying here.

After a 9-hour drive to Allegany we were very warmly welcomed by innkeeper Joan and shown to our cozy room. My husband missed breakfast since he was up very early to go skiing, but I'm glad I stayed to enjoy the good coffee and delicious vegetarian breakast that Joan had prepared for me. We are innkeepers ourselves, so really understand what it takes to take care of guests. Joan and Gary, we were not disappointed! We'll be back!

My husband and I and 4 teens stayed at the Cottage for a ski weekend and we loved it! The Cottage was warm and comfortable, and the kitchen nicely equipped so that we could make our meals easily. Joan made us feel comfortable right from the start and was very accommodating.

My new husband and I stayed here on our first night as husband and wife. It was the first time for either of us to stay in a B&B. We had been in the area earlier in the week so we decided to stop by and check it out. The owners gave us a full tour. The entire place is beautiful. We had to arrive after the regular check in time but the owners bent over backwards to work with us. I didn't know they made beds so soft! The breakfast of pancakes with real maple syrup and fresh fruit was spectacular. We can't wait to go back and stay there again someday!

Many years ago, I made up my mind to stay in B&Bs whenever possible. Our long weekend (four nights, five days) at Gallets House only reinforces that decision. Comfortable rooms and beds, generous breakfasts and a relaxed informal atmosphere are its hallmarks. For those of you with kids at the local university such as ourselves, the location is very convenient; less than 5 minutes drive to the St. Bonaventure campus. Many thanks to Joan and Gary for their generosity and flexibility. Best regards, Ray and Dina

The Gallet House is absolutely beautiful. Joan and Cheri were wonderful and very patient with us 9 women gabbing about. Cheri's children did an excellent job serving dinner and brunch. My bed was so comfortable. It was the first time I stayed at a B&B and would go again.

When staying at a B&B i like to stay to myself and do things i would like to do. I have had pushy inkeepers in the past however Joan was absolutly wonderful. Showed us to our room and left us alone unless we needed something. The house and property is absolutly gorgeous!

I stayed at Gallets House for two nights in October 2008. The house is fabulous: even the stuff has stuff! There's every wonderful Victorian element: oak woodwork, pocket doors, paintings, old wallpaper, a guest parlor, a game room/lounge in the old stone-walled basement with fridge and microwave for guests' use, formal dining room for breakfast. The rooms are wildly overdecorated, as is the whole place, really, but you don't mind because it's all so much fun. The Bosers, who run the place, are friendly and talkative, sometimes to the point where you'd like to get a word in of your own! But they're cheerful, helpful and genuinely considerate of their guests. The location is on a side road, so the b&b is very quiet, and convenient to attractions in the area. Only downsides: the TV in my room was tiny and stuck way up next to the ceiling, very hard to see, the reading lamp was insufficient to read in bed, and breakfast could have been substantially better. Otherwise, I loved the place and would certainly go back for another stay.
We strive to do our best to make our guests comfortable and happy.We have added a larger TV to this room and moved the floor lamp that was in the room to the side of the bed. I serve juice, fruit,homemade breads, homemade jelly, muffins, foods like pancakes, french toast, omelets, quiche and offer guests extra helpings and I ask and take special request. Please just ask if you need anything more as I am very happy to see you have what you wish.
- Joan Boser (innkeeper)

We have stayed in many B and B's in our area, and Gallet House was by far the most beautiful,with so many extra touches to pamper us. The history of the house is amazing, as are the hosts for taking the time to tell it. We will most certainly come again!

While I only had one night and a very tight schedual, Joan was totally cool about understanding my situation. She made me feel so welcome and I felt so safe and comfortable in her house. Her house, btw, is a beautiful, spotlessly clean, remarkably decorated victorian that is excellent condition. I loved everything about her house, even the gardens outside were beautiful although I did not have time to roam through them. I recommended her to the administration of the Western New York Alpaca Breeders, as a place to keep the judges for next years show. Joan knows how to be a great hostess, and next time I stay there I look forward to meeting her other half! Thanks Joan.... Breakfast was delicious and your place is first rate :)

We started staying at the Gallets House when Joan and Gary first opened. And we have been going back every year since then. Sometimes twice a year. We were staying at other B&B's in town until they opened. But nothing compared to the Hospitality that you will get at the Gallets House. Joan and Gary are like family now. Wouldn't think of staying any place else. John and Miriam Jobe, Poquoson, VA.

Due to my plane's arrival being 2hrs late, I called Joan to let her know I would be much later than I had planned to arrive. She put me at ease and said she would await my arrival. I drove in from Buffalo and did not have a great map with me and Joan guided me to the Gallets House. Needless to say the room was excellent, the pie was just the right nightcap to help me relax after a very hard day of work and travel. The house exudes local history! I felt at home. both Joan and Gary are very accomodating hosts. When I come back to visit , i will stay at the Gallets House!

My wife and I spent the weekend at the Gallets House in April 08. We stayed in the Mary Elizabeth room which is the largest room, which we found to be very relaxing. Joan was a great host and cooks up a very nice breakfast. She also related the history of the inn and how she and Gary restored it 10 years earlier. The restoration was very nicely done. Part of the romance package was a gift certificate to The Old Library Restaurant in Olean. The the meal and atmosphere was a perfect compliment to our stay at the inn. We definitely hope to stay at the Gallets again in the not to distant future.

Last year, the Bosers saved our wedding night. We were married in Bradford, and we had reserved a room at a B & B there. The innkeeper must've decided that we weren't going to show up (even though I told him it would be later in the day when we arrived, and I had given him a credit card to hold the room), but he gave the room away. There was nothing else available in the region except for the Motel 6 in Olean! My mother-in-law's concierge found out that the cottage was available at Gallets House, and we were able to stay there for our wedding night. It was a wonderful place, and the Bosers were terrific. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful, too. I would definitely return to this B&B because it was a wonderful place, and the innkeepers were terrific. They saved our wedding night!

We stayed at the Gallet's House for our anniversary, and had such a wonderful time! We purchased the romance package, and everything was just so perfect. The innkeepers, Joan and Gary, were so friendly and made us feel so welcome - you would have thought we had known them for years! The B&B was so well decorated, and the family history of the place is unbelievable with pictures everywhere to enjoy - we felt like we had taken a step back in history! Breakfast was delicious, and we sat and enjoyed it with other guests, just talking - even the innkeepers themselves took a little time out of their busy schedule to sit with us for breakfast one morning..how much more personable can you be than that! THe room and all the amenities offered here are just super. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone, we oursleves hope to make a return visit sometime as well!!!!
