My wife and I were treated like family, and we felt right at home in this historical home. The inn is a convenient walk to the downtown Galena venues. Breakfast is wonderful, and cookies, tea, coffee, water and soft drinks are available all day long. Also, we were treated to wine, cheese, and appetizers at 4 pm on the private patio.

Loved having you and Mary Ann here. It was a fun weekend for me and am so happy you felt at home. Hope you come back again soon!

We visited August 17-19, 2018. Our experience was outstanding beyond any expectation. The house was in excellent condition. We stayed in the Maude room. It was large and bright with lots of natural windows and pleasant views. The bathroom was modern. The four o'clock wine and appetizers on the beautiful newly redone patio was very nicely done. The caprese skewers and the chocolate stuffed raspberries were enchanting. Two very friendly little dogs joined us on the patio, at our invitation. Breakfast was a sumptuous feast each morning. The 'cheese pie' was quite airy and flavorful. The proprietress, Michelle, was a friendly helpful delight with a profound backstory. Her 'sidekick' Norm was equally pleasant. This was my first visit to Galena. I hope to return and won't consider any where else to stay but the Lamberson.

We chose Lamberson Guest House to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. When we arrived Michelle, the owner, had wine and cheese waiting for all her guests on the patio. It was a beautiful summer day. Michelle sat with us and told us the history of the home. The room was just perfect and a nice touch with chocolates and homemade brownies by our pillows and a celebratory note. It was surprisingly quiet with 8 guests in the house and the room was very comfortable. We enjoyed everyone's company at breakfast which was an epicurean delight each morning. We had a relaxing and wonderful 2 day getaway. Michelle-all your hard work has definitely paid off. We would certainly go back there.

Lamberson Guest House was such a beautiful home to stay in. This was our first visit to Galena and it was wonderful. Michelle’s attention to detail in each room, her amazing breakfast, and cheerfulness made it even better! We can’t wait to make a return visit!

From the moment my wife and I met Michelle, we were so impressed on how gracious and organized she was. We loved the history of the house and thought the condition of the room was outstanding. Very convenient location and the breakfast was spectacular . Michelle is a fantastic host and clearly takes pride in what she does. We already booked our room for October.
Business Response:

Thank you so much Larry, for taking the time to write. I truly loved having you and Kathy here and am so glad I had the time to chat over breakfast and get to know the two of you. I am anxiously awaiting your return in October! Have a wonderful Summer and thank you again for checking in. :)

Galena is a wonderful place to visit and when you can stay in a beautiful home like we did at the Lamberson House well then your stay just became superb! A very welcoming owner ( Michelle) is so warm and friendly right from the moment you meet her. We knew we were in the right place immediately! We settled in and by 4:00 we were relaxing having wine and cheese on the front porch! The rooms are so clean and comfortable, beautiful house! Then coffee served while you wait for breakfast at 8:30. Breakfast was superb! And at the end Michelle sat with the guests and shared Galena history and just interacted with us like we have known her forever! We will now! We booked October too! Loved every minute there! Thank you Michelle you’ve made Lamberson house a wonderful place to visit!
Business Response:

Kathy...I already feel as if you and Larry are family. Nothing makes me happier than to have someone walk through my door as a guest and walk out as a friend. I can't wait til you're back in October!

We had a wonderful time with Michelle & other guests! Michelle made excellent recommendations for dinner & activities in town, and our breakfast with her the next morning was fantastic! Chocolate cappuccino muffins?! Yes, please! We completely enjoyed our time there in such a beautiful room, and we're already planning our next visit!

In a town filled with B&B’s, This one is a step above. The house is beautiful and Michelle shares the history of the house and the family who built it. It has been very tastefully redone while preserving all the original character and charm . From arrival to departure, you won’t be disappointed. Michelle makes you feel pampered and special.
Business Response:

Thank you so much, Rich...you ARE special. Can't wait to have you back. :)
