What are your top three expectations when you book a weekend getaway? Many guests rank having authentic service, clean and comfortable rooms, and delicious breakfast as the highest priorities. Do you agree? Well, Farmers Guest House offers all of this and more. Here are five reasons why staying at our bed and breakfast in Galena, IL, will be a bright spot in your next vacation! We can’t wait to welcome you!
Why Should You Spend a Weekend at Our Bed and Breakfast in Galena, IL?
1. Reduced Rates
If pricing is important to you, you’ll always get the best rate when you book directly on the Farmers Guest House website (or by giving us a call). Did you know that online travel agencies (OTAs) charge hidden fees? Did you know they often don’t show all of the rooms available at a property, keeping you from making the best choice for your needs? For the best pricing as well as access to our specials and add-ons, it always pays to book direct.
2. Personalized Services
One of the most personalized services our Galena, IL, lodging offers is a delicious breakfast. You can enjoy our house-made items like Caramel Pecan French Toast, eclairs, oatmeal pumpkin pancakes, local meats, and Farmers Guest House’s Signature Egg Frittata. We love to use locally-sourced ingredients and find a way to take breakfast to the next level.
Our WineTime is another guest favorite. Each evening, we serve wine and cheese, which are the perfect complement to stories and conversation. Mingle with other guests or find a quiet spot for a romantic toast with your sweetie.
Our B&B is a two-generation family business, so it’s important to us that each guest enjoy their stay. We’re available to answer questions and assist you in any way we can so that you enjoy your stay! We can help you make dinner reservations as well as help come up with a few things for you to do during your stay. Farmers Guest House in Galena, IL, has been a gathering place for travelers and locals since the late 1800s, a tradition that continues today!
COVID-19 UPDATE: Our two-course breakfast will be delivered to your room at an appointed time. You can dine in your room at the cafe table or take it to-go and enjoy a picnic en route to your daily excursions. Also, we are delivering wine and snacks to guest rooms rather than hosting a gathering in the common area. You can then sip your wine in your room, or choose to find a cozy spot in the B&B or on our beautiful grounds!
We have additional policies and procedures in place due to COVID-19 to ensure you have a safe and fun stay.
3. Onsite Amenities
Booking a 60- or 90-minute treatment at our spa is one incredible way to enhance your stay. We have a private massage room onsite that’s so peaceful, the stress of your week will begin to melt away immediately. (Please check with the front desk about spa availability during COVID-19.)
