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 ...

Jim had an 4 or 5 hour meeting with the National and Regional (Bogota) Emmaus directors and together they set up a 5 year vision plan for the Emmaus courses in Colombia. Marcia VanderLaan retired from the field while we were in the country and these men will be helping run the Emmaus ...

April 23 (Day 7) -- We are ending our day in a parking lot kitty corner from the entrance to the Diamond Jo Casino in Dubuque, Iowa. There are a couple big rigs in here with us right now but not sure how long they will stay... it will do for the night. We arrived here in Dubuque about 4:45pm and hungry so decided to see if there was any parking for RVs around the casino and decided to treat ourselves to dinner in the casino. A ...

We've been spotting 12-20 eagles every day or the last couple of weeks and today saw approx 30. We also managed to see a beaver dam and many blue-green herons. The river has vast areas of native lotus lilies and lots of duckweed. Very interesting river with fisherman tucked away in quiet river bends trying their ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Farmers' Guest House Galena
Full of charm!
We had a great time @ the Famers' Guest House. Convienently located near downtown Galena, this B&B was fantastic!. Proprietors Kathie & Jess Farlow were very warm and friendly. It was just like staying with old friends. The rooms were clean and comfortable, as were all of the common areas. Make Farmers'Guest House your place to stay if ever in Galena, Il.
Ready to book again
We truly enjoyed a three night stay at Farmers' Guest House. Our true remorse arrived the morning following our departure when we awoke to a chain hotel's presentation of a breakfast. We were considering phoning Kathie and Jess immediately to book a return visit - or finding out whether they might deliver any of their breakfast items. Thank you Kathie and Jess for a memorable get-away.

Been to Galena many times, but none where as great as when we stayed at the Farmers Guesthouse. Great people very friendly and inviting. The best breakfast in town, we have stayed so many times that we have seen just about every room, everyone is special and delightful. Being so close to town you needn't even drive your car to town. You go in as a customer and leave as a friend.
Extremely enjoyable stay
I've been going to the Galena area for many years but never stayed in one of the local B&Bs. Recently, I stayed at the Farmers' Guest House. The building was built in the 1860's so it was historical and beautifully decorated! Our room with private bath was comfortable, cozy, and very well maintained.
We enjoyed a wine and cheese social hour in the evening and a fabulous breakfast in the morning (the french toast was exceptional!). We were within easy walking distance of downtown Galena.
The innkeepers, Kathie, Jess and Charles, were very congenial and knowledgable about the Galena area. We particularly enjoyed hearing the history of the Farmers' Guest House.
A place not to miss!
Our 7 siblings, 4 spouses, 5 cousins, and one grandchild converged on this B & B in Galena for three great days. This house comfortably hosts 22, and our crowd found the many comfortable common areas perfect for both small and large communing on and off during the day.
Great!!! I would love to live here..
I love The Farmers Guest House... I've been there 6 times in less than a year..I have taken a total of 39 friends and family and they all loved it!!! Hope to be back before summer is over..Looking forward to Christmas the decorations are amazing..
One night is not enough
This is a wonderful facility in an extraordinary one of a kind town. The innkeepers are gracious, thoughtful and wonderful hosts.
The rooms are great and the rates are reasonable given the facilities. Breakfast is wonderful. These are the creme de la creme of innkeepers.
Few could imagine the delights of Galena, IL. but it offers many things for many interests - historic buildings, great retail, wonderful dining and great history.
You should do the place justice - both the inn and the town - and plan to stay more than one day.
From the moment we stepped through the magnificent front door, we were welcomed with open arms to this beautiful establishment.
We have stayed at this B&B several times now. It is much larger than your average B&B, in that it has something like 10 rooms (including "normal" rooms and suites), as well as an unconnected 2-floor cabin. The owners, Kathy and Jess, are extremely nice people who go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable (heck, Jess will even officiate your wedding). Same for staff member Charles.
Five trips to date and going back again in Dec. 04 for trip #6 - excellent, more like an old Italian Inn then a B&B. Clean, beautifully decorated, large common areas (dinning and sitting rooms with big screen TV, lots of DVD and CD's to choose from) exellent breakfast each morning, wine & cheese at night, free soda/water/hot tea/coffee all hours, little treats (cookies etc), hot tub in a beautiful tree filled back yard, walking distance to the main shopping area and restaurants. You have a question the owners have the answer. This is a great place, don't miss it.
