What Our Guests are Saying

As many of you know, Farmers Guest House recently hosted an engaging leadership retreat for Project Linus. The leadership and management from Project Linus engaged in several team building exercises while meeting at Farmers Guest House. Their Galena executive retreat was recently reported on in their newsletter. Below is their recap of their time at Farmers Guest House. You can check out the Project Linus newsletter and learn more about this amazing organization at:

quilting retreats in galenaI can’t think of a better way to spend a few days than gathered together with 7 of my closest friends at a beautiful bed and breakfast. To make it even better, our stay was all about Project Linus, and making blankets. In mid September, just as the leaves were starting to turn warm colors of gold and red, we traveled to Galena, Illinois. There we stayed for 2 nights at The Farmers Guesthouse. Conveniently located on Route 20, in NW Illinois, it is about 18 miles from Dubuque, IA. It is close to shopping and restaurants and in such a glorious setting, we could have easily stayed much longer.  Susan and Don, our innkeepers were there to take care of our every need, preparing lovely meals and making sure we had every comfort. 

We took advantage of Susan’s Quilt Retreat.  As a quilter herself, Susan knows just what is needed to be able to create and stitch to your hearts content. She has a large workroom with ironing and cutting stations, and plenty of space for your sewing machine.  We highly recommend this lovely destination for anyone interested in taking a few days of relaxing, fun creativity with your favorite Project Linus friends.  Please check out their website  for more details on pricing and availability, or call Susan at 815-777-3456.

Susan has set aside 2 dates for retreats, which include November 4-5, and January 14-15 both of which still have availability.  Use the secret word “blanket” for $25.00 off the double occupancy rate. 

Susan and Don are Project Linus supporters, and offer special pricing to anyone who brings in a blanket or buys a blanket kit that she can them make for the local chapter.  We are happy to include them in our Project Linus family!
