... the road. Traffic was terrible p, so it took an hour to get back, and then we pretty much made our way out of the city and onwards west. We drove until about 8ish and then we stopped at a KOA in a small place called Lena. It was a beautiful little caravan park, with a pool and slide, an awesome playground for Kaya, even with a jumping pillow! :) we pretty much had dinner and ...
... a calvary troop hunting the Indians, followed by an episode of 'Gunsmoke', which also had a calvary theme today. With that, we settled back in for the rest of the trip, slipping over a scattered carpet of clouds a few thousand feet below us.
Technology snuck up on us again as we winged our way across South Dakota. I went to look at the copy of my flight plan that I had downloaded to my phone, when I saw that I had good connectivity. ...
After regaling the baby boomers around the breakfast table with tales of Tasmania over our chocolate cake and eggs benedict we headed towards the Effigy Mounds national monument. Travelling through the country back roads we encountered a couple of Amish carts. Just like the Great River Road we're following is known as a scenic byway, it turns out the road we were inadvertently on was signposted as an 'Amish Byway'. The effigy mounds are large mounds of earth ...
We're back home already after our 3 1/2 weeks in South America. It's not because we did nothing that I did not write, but because we did so much!
After our many meets (meetings) and eats (being invited out) in Lima, we took a very early morning taxi to the airport and said good bye to the new and improved city of Lima, Peru and headed for Bogota, via Panama City, Panama.
On Good Friday we didn't have any meetings scheduled so we thought we'd ...
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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Felt Manor Guest House Galena
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!!
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.
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
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 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.
In summary, Felt Manor is more than just a beautiful Victorian home. It's one of life's very special treasures. Come with an appetite and a appreciation for gracious hospitality. These are truly people who love what they do, and you'll feel like an old friend by the time you leave.
Best B&B Ever!
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
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
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.
