This is the second time we stayed here. Like others 1st time was great but the 2nd time I wondered if they had different owners. We came in after being gone all day and though the bed was made, In 2 of our 3 rooms the coffe pot was dirty & so were the wine glasses. The grounds were still in the coffee pot and the cups were dirty. Doesn't seem like a big deal but even the cheaper motels give clean cups & glasses. We'll be staying somewhere else next time. We had 3 rooms, the only reason their cups & glasses were clean was because they hadn't used them. At these prices is it too much to expect clean cups, glasses, and coffee pot?

We were here for a wedding recently. First of all we were quoted one price and then got another price for $40.00 more. We had to pay it because they would not honor the original price. Since it was a wedding, we were told there would be a discount. We were not the only people this was told to. Also, the the place is in need of some work. The stairs are not too sturdy, the building is in need of a paint job and our room needed an overhaul as well. Our room backed up to the forest behind the Inn, so everytime we opened the door, we had all kinds of bugs fly in. I even found a tick in the bathroom. I've been to Galena a lot and I would never stay at LeFever again. Not worth the price and there isn't much to do there either. The grounds were pretty though for the wedding, but if I had a choice, I would have stayed somewhere else.

This is a small (8 rooms plus 2 cabins) resort in the rolling hills just outside of Galena. The building is situated on the top of one of those hills, and the view from your room reaches to Iowa and Wisconsin as well as Illinois. Because they are at the end of a dead-end road and off the beaten path, you never hear any traffic noise at all, unless it's someone coming to the Inn. The rooms are well laid out, with amenities such as an HD TV, mini-fridge and coffee maker. The king size bed was comfy and the pillows were supportive, not those postage stamp size pancakes a lot of hotels are using these days. They have a wonderful pool which is never very crowded, a grill if you wish to use it, a fire-pit area, a small lake with a gazebo out over it (used often for weddings), paddle-boat for free use on the lake and free continental breakfast! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return again to this wonderful place whenever we visit the Galena area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the lake

We (a couple of 3 persons- included a teenager) stayed there for two nights. Its not far from Galena but far away to have a silent place for relaxing. We were directely in the nature .. with a beautiful view on the lake, birds whistle..The rooms are also greate and large. There is a plasma TV above the fireplace, a small fridge and a coffee maker. In addition we had a whirlpool in the bathroom. In balance- we enjoy each day. That's exact what we expect after some days in Chicago...

This quaint little resort is specacular for any getaway. The rooms are clean and the king size bed makes it hard to get out of bed. We came about three years ago and since then the inn has been modernized and they added a pond with a walkout gazebo. I will bring the whole family this summer!

Room Tip: The best room by far is their cabin.

We found the LeFevre Inn to be a charming little inn with a great panoramic view of the countryside. Our room was very tastefully decorated and the fireplace gave the room an extra touch of comfort. The service was excellent. It was well worth the 5 minute drive out of Galena. We hope to have an opportunity to return to the Inn in the future.
