... sculpted into shapes of animals, birds and other objects by ancient Indian tribes. We watched an interesting short film and went for a short hike through the woods up to a bluff above the river where some of the best preserved examples are located. It also gave us great views over the river and we encountered plenty of wildlife such as various types of squirrel and a garter snake which caused some consternation for Donelle. The wildlife hasn't been in ...

... set up and ran for many, many years in Bucaramanga. Please pray for that transition from missionary organized and financed to a completely nationalized ministry

On our last day in Colombia Jim, with a heavy cold, preached 5 sessions on 2 Peter to over 600 people from 50 churches in Bogota--about half of them from assemblies. Each one received a set of Jim's notes and a copy of the Emmaus course 2 Peter and Jude (written by his dad, Ken ...

Rode down to start the trans Wisconsin adventure trail just outside Dubuque Iowa. When I left the house it was 37 degrees. Overall temp was 50-55 the rest of the day. We found some fun twisties after miles and miles of corn fields. Made a few stops for rest, gas and food and ...

... offered gained us the knowledge that the buffet was $7 tonight and we also had the possibility of our points being 5x to 25x value. Both Denis and I got 5x. We had dinner, played some and both were up so we left but checked with the security guard about parking the motorhome and is it okay overnight. Yes, so we went and closed up the curtains and decided we could return to the casino as long as we only played a little and still left ...

... this hard work made us hungry and we ended up in Jules' Cafe in La Crosse for lunch. It was organic and vegetarian! Beautiful vegetarian chilli and lattes all round - Carol had mushroom bisque. It was unanimously agreed that it was the best meal we have had since landing here. We followed the Great River Road which was jammed (literally) between the Mississippi and the hills and wound through some beautiful countryside and ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Felt Manor Guest House Galena

    Absolutely Fabulous

    from

    We booked for 3 nights but we could have stayed there for a whole week and not moved from the house! We had the run of the place and were treated like friends, nothing was too much trouble. Laura's breakfasts are a wonderful feast - all homemade but with a delicious twist. The staff too, are very friendly and helpful. The afternoon tea is a delight, my husband loved the cream cheese, cucumber and dill on rye.

    The house itself is warm, comfortable and interesting in its own right and sympathetically decorated by Dan and Laura. Our room (Catherine's Room) was beautiful and very comfortable. Thanks Dan and Laura, you're doing a great job.

    Can't be beat!!

    from

    My wife & I traveled to Galena for our Anniversary and we got well more than what we expected. Great room, excellent breakfest, and the Saturday high tea was unbeliveable. We will stay here again.

    AMAZING!

    from

    The Felt Manor was simply amazing! I felt like I was at home. The staff was extremely welcoming and accomodating. This B & B has such a relaxing atmosphere that I didn't want to leave! If I'm ever in Galena again this is where I will be staying!

    Enjoyed the stay

    from

    Dan and Laura were very accomodating and friendly and made you feel very welcome.

    The breakfasts were excellent. The Saturday afternoon tea was great. They definitely keep you well fed.

    The rooms are very cosy. The house is well kept and very clean with soft music in the common areas and in the garden.

    There is no other!

    from

    From the time we made our reservation until the regretful end of our stay, we were treated like honored guests. Laura was such an amazing and charming hostess! If you're looking for a place to stay in Galena, look no further than Felt Manor. When we made our reservation, Laura took the time to get to know us a little bit. She asked about any dietary restrictions or preferences we had, and she also graciously secured all of our dinner reservations for the very busy holiday weekend. We arrived late Friday evening, and were greeted by a buffet of tea, homemade pastries, wines and sherry all set in her lovely Victorian parlor. We immediately felt at home. There was a little surprise for us when we arrived in our room, too! The home is lovely, and much attention is paid to details. There is no shortage of reading material or games, if you want to hang out inside or you can just relax and unwind on either of the two scenic porches. The house is situated high above the town, within close walking distance, and provides a beautiful view. Laura and her husband Dan do not take breakfast lightly. If you're used to having a danish and coffee, you'll be amazed by the bountiful and elaborate gourmet breakfast you will receive each morning. Things such as fruit creme brulee, home baked pumpkin bread, peach souflee, eggs benedict, sugar dusted maple cured bacon, vegetable quiche and more are not uncommon. As if this isn't enough, Saturday afternoons boast a "tea" like we've never seen before. If you're eating dinner out that night, you'd better make a late reservation, because the spread is not to be believed. We don't want to give away all of Laura's secrets, but trust us, you'll not be disappointed.

    Best B&B Ever!

    from

    Our stay at Felt Manor was, without question, the finest B&B experience we've ever enjoyed. We were treated to a fabulous Wednesday high tea and a gourmet breakfast like none other! The rooms were very comfortable, the setting lovely, the location ideal, and the host and hostess superb. We'll be returning soon!

    Our best B&B

    from

    The beds were great. Hosts were delightful, knowledgeable, and a sous chef for our "High Tea", and 5 star breakfast. The view is wonderful and just two blocks off the wonderful downtown shopping area, yet you are isolated from congestion and noise. How they provide this experience at their fee is not understandable. Five star experience at a two star fee.

    A Fantastic Inn

    from

    Staying at Felt Manor was an extremely pleasant experience. We felt like we were back in the Victrian splendor of the 1700-1800s.

    Having stayed at other B & Bs and small Inns, I thought the morning meal was a nice breakfast. Well, Laura and Dan, the owners of Felt Manor have certainly raied the bar...multi coarse gormet breakfasts are the standard at Felt Manor.

    There is unquestionably a world class Inn in Galena IL...it's the Felt Manor. We're looking forward to our next visit.
