Farmers Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 November 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Farmers' Guest House for the weekend, and had a wonderful time. Susan and Don were very accommodating, going out of their way to make dinner reservations for us and giving us recommendations on where to go and what to do. It's so conveniently located, just a few blocks' walk to downtown. Wine time is worth it! :) We'll definitely be back!

I attended another Quilt Retreat and had an even better time than the last. What a wonderful way to relax and get away. You don't need a retreat to enjoy the outstanding food and charm. Just book a room so you can be spoiled!

Room Tip: If you want a get-away suite. Ask for Julia, #2.

Thank you for another review! We enjoy the retreat groups because it is such fun to see so many folks relaxing and getting to know one another while enjoying a craft, activity or business meeting. We look forward to seeing you again at one of the Spring retreats or over the holidays with your partner.

Many happy returns,
Susan & Don

On our first visit to Galena, we were fortunate to have selected Farmers' Guest House for our overnight lodging. We found the place to be conveniently located near the downtown shopping district and innkeepers Susan and Don to be very pleasant and helpful.

We went with 5 other couples for a weekend getaway. Don and Susan were the best hosts hands down. They went out of their way to make our weekend special. The decor and atmosphere was stellar. The breakfast was outstanding.

My wife and I visited with a group of six couples we had a great time. What a pleasant trip the owners where wonderful people and made us all feel welcome. Susan and Don went above and beyond to see that our stay was a memorable one. The room we had was delightful.We will be back soon.

My husband and I had booked the Farmers Guest house for our mini Honeymoon. We have never stayed at a B&B, so I went to every review on the internet. Sue and Don have earned their rating and then some. We felt so welcome, as if we were an extension their own family. Knowing Galena, we wanted to make sure we found a B & B close to town, everything is so close.
We added on to our package with couples massages. A MUST for everybody. I would say that my massage was one of the top 3 I have had (and I am picky with my therapists).
The room (Charlotte) very spacious with all the comforts of home. We loved having the private entrance and the fireplace. BREAKFAST was always amazing. Charles, Don and Sue were right on top of it. The shared dining area was huge. You can sit by yourself or with your new neighbors.
We really enjoyed wine time and the chatter that happens at 5:00. Being "foodies" it was nice to know YOU know where to eat.
We really ran out of time, so much to do and so little time. I suggest an extra day.

Can't wait to share our experience with our friends and family as we were the ginny pigs. Kuddos to you I have a big mouth! We will be back!

Room Tip: Charlotte has private access in and out.
