... 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 ...

The town was still a bit sleepy, so we didn't encounter that many folks who were ready to say good morning to a clown, but we did meet a woman on the sidewalk who told us she'd just moved there a week and a half ago and was utterly delighted to meet a real circus clown. Aw.
The bulk of the morning was spent outside of the restaurant, Goodtimes, owned by a ...
... Jim spoke at the final plenary session on "Connected in Fellowship" and did a fantastic job (in my unbiased opinion!) on concluding the conference with how we should work together and be united in Christ.
We had a marvelous trip and thank you for praying for us.
Jim leaves on Sunday, Lord Willing, for Pan-Africa Brethren Conference on Mission and three Emmaus conferences in Kenya and Ethiopia. Watch for more news!
... with resorts, both high and low end. And the crazy thing about it is that while you can swim in some of the Canadian parts of the lake, you can’t swim – at least as far as I could make out – in the U.S. waters because it has mostly deep and unsheltered. When Elenka asked the woman who ran the place we stayed at in Minnesota where the best place was to swim the woman looked at her as though she was from Mars and said that the ...

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.
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!
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.
