After a 3 year search that covered 7 states and over 35 Bed and Breakfasts, Don and Susan Steffan purchased Farmers Guest House in early 2012 fulfilling their dream of becoming innkeepers. Don and Susan view their time as owners of this historic Galena property as both a privilege and a calling. Providing exceptional service and hospitality that redefines country elegance to their guests is their number one goal. You are invited to come and experience Farmers Guest House for yourself and enjoy the charm and appeal of Galena’s number one Bed and Breakfast.
