If you find yourself going to Galena, i can recommend you staying at this BnB. They are very friendly and the breakfast was something special. It is a Quick walk to the main Street. The only downside is that it is close to the Road.

My sister and I had the pleasure of staying in the Lucretia Suite. We had connected bedrooms and a private bath. It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Our host, Joan and Dave, we’re awesome and made us feel like old time friends. Joan made a scrumptious breakfast of breakfast casserole, Dutch baby pancakes with blueberries, peach croissants, juice, and coffee. She shared the history of the home and highlighted architectural details. Joan and Dave have a wealth of knowledge about the community, points of interest and Galena history. We enjoyed chatting on the front porch with Dave. Lots of laughs and stories shared. Joan and Dave are the ultimate hosts. We left feeling relaxed and happy ... and like old friends. Looking forward to the next time!

My friend and I stayed here and had a lovely visit. Our suite had two separate sleeping rooms which was perfect for us. It's very walkable to the shops of Galena and has a wonderful front porch for relaxing. Breakfast was outstanding!

We stopped here on our first night of a 15 day road trip. We stayed in the Alice room. Spacious with large ensuite bathroom. The hosts, Joan and David were extremely accommodating, but not intrusive. Breakfast was spectacular! The food was amazing. We enjoyed visiting with other guests. I highly recommend staying at this B&B. Thank you Joan and David for all your hard work. We appreciate you!!

Joan and Dave are welcoming and make you feel at home. The premises are authentic and comfortable with a very rich history which makes the stay so much more interesting! Within walking distance to downtown restaurants, shopping and other attractions, it provides a great way to explore the pre-Civil war town of Galena. We hope to return soon!

Very sweet little B&B. We were in the Alice Room which has Japanese decor. Nice sized private bathroom with plenty of amenities, body wash, shampoo & conditioner, hairdryer, make-up wipes and lots of towels. Breakfast was delicious and my gluten-free request was more than fulfilled. Close to downtown. The thing that troubled me was that there are no keys to the rooms. When you leave you can't lock the door, but while in the room, there is a hook and eye lock. Was assured that there had been no trouble with this system for years.

What an amazing B&B Joan and Dave have!! From the first step into their beautiful home we felt like family. The location to downtown is a few minute walk so no worries about parking. Joans breakfast is out of this world and we loved them joining us to answer all our questions about their home and the history of Galena. Not to mention the homemade cookies at all hours of the day! Looking forward to returning next year!!

Wife and I really enjoyed this B&B. Upon arrival, I felt very welcome by Joan and Dave. They are extremely nice people who made us very comfortable. The location is a five minute beautiful walk to downtown Galena. With the hectic traffic thru Galena, I’m glad we chose to stay at Alice’s Snyder House. The room was comfy but small. However, it suited our needs of getting a good night sleep. Also, talking to the other guests, there are larger rooms if you need one. The morning breakfast was by far the best B&B breakfast we’ve had. And the story and history telling during breakfast about Alice’s past was a nice touch by the hostess Joan. Host Dave was also a very interesting guy. Being a past motorcycle rider, he gave us some places to visit off the beaten path while on our motorcycle that he’d think we would enjoy. He was right on. Glad we listened to him. I found myself sitting with Dave on the front porch several times in my short weekend visit. I wouldn’t hesitate to sit with him anytime. Overall, you can’t go wrong with Alice’s. It’s location is great, it’s very clean, comfortable and cozy. That would be enough for most B&B travelers. However, I can’t say enough about how awesome the hosts were and how the breakfast was amazing and the front porch conversation was great. Almost forgot, no trouble parking.

The history and stories shared over the excellent breakfast was a perfect start to our day in Galena! The hosts were very welcoming and you can tell that they love their B&B and enjoy sharing it with guests!

Owners are super friendly and the breakfast was amazing! Sweet place to stay with the feel of Galena history all around you. The entire house is warm and inviting. The street at night is quiet. Easy to get to as well.
