The Halloween/Fall decor outside was fun and tasteful. The food was unique and delicious and the atmosphere was just what I was looking for in a Bed & Breakfast. We had a cozy but spacious room, very comfortable setting. Very accommodating to our needs, very personable. Paul was friendly, informative about the town and made us feel right at home. Definitely going back next year!!

Paul and his wife were very accommodating. I was attempting to eat plant based while in Galena for the weekend (ha ha) but they made wonderful vegan breakfasts. They go all out to accommodate everyone. Such a lovely house and BTW, you can just cut through to Gelena's downtown taking Franklin St. southeast, so you are actually just a couple minutes from downtown. I would LOVE to go back to this lovely house!

Excellent location, few minutes away from Galena and a short drive to the mountain. Exceptional hospitality by Paul. The place to stay if you are going to that area.
