I found Tierra Linda on teh internet when looking for a place in Galena that allows dogs(we have a 3 year old yellow lab). Tierra Linda not only allows dogs, but welcomes them! Our host, Armando, greeted us at th front gate with his two Airdales. We took a tour of the property which is absolutley beautiful with trails winding through the woods and a large pond for our dog to swim. A creek winds down from the pond to the bottom of a ravine. This is not a country club, Armando has kept the property pretty much as nature wants it to be. This was a former dairy farm and there are still outbuildings such as a barn and chicken coup in various states of disrepair. Makes for a rustic atmosphere. The B&B itself is a farmhouse built about 1890. It is not elegant, but is very comfortable. Try the rocking chairs next to the wood burning stove. Armando makes a great country breakfast and has an interesting personal history worth asking about. We will definately stop in again on our next trip to Galena, with or without a dog.
