A truly wonderful experience! My mother and I visited Lamberson Guest House on a recent mother-daughter weekend getaway. Michelle was an amazing, warm, kind, and gracious hostess. We stayed in the Maud room, which was fabulous! The room was clean and spacious. The afternoon sun was beautiful! The attention to detail within our room and throughout the house was great. We enjoyed freshly baked cookies, watching movies from the house collection, socializing during wine and cheese hour, devouring AMAZING breakfasts, and so much more. I could go on and on... Location was also very convenient within Galena. We will definitely be back to Galena and we will DEFINITELY stay at Lamberson Guest House!

This was our 2nd visit to Lamberson and it was just as wonderful as the first visit! Such a warm, inviting house. Michelle is an amazing hostess! There is a peacefulness about the house that just makes you want to extend your stay or plan your next visit. Our room (Maud) was so comfortable, and breakfast each morning was delicious! We just got home yesterday and have already booked our next return trip for this coming October! We can’t wait!
Business Response:

Tanya....I think you may officially be family now! I was so happy when I received the message that you booked again already. So happy you continue to enjoy your time here....I LOVE having you both!

I cannot say enough good stuff about the Lamberson Guest House. From the second we stepped in, Michelle made us feel at home. She knows the history of the house, which made the tour of it all the more interesting. The room (we stayed in the Jessie) was top-notch all around. The views out the parlor windows are gorgeous. The location was great for getting onto Main Street (it's a long stair case, but it's a straight shot). Breakfast, as well as the other accommodations (the cookies and brownies were addictive), were excellent! We fully plan on returning!
Business Response:

Aaron... THANK YOU! I loved having you both here and really enjoyed sharing the history of this beautiful old home. Please come back soon for more of those "addictive" cookies! ☺️

This is, by far, the best B&B we have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The owner, Michelle, is a generous, kind and amazing hostess with the mostess! Our room was elegant and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and the constant supply of homemade cookies was amazing! I highly recommend that if you visit Galena, you stay at the Lamberson. Thank you again Michelle for a wonderful and relaxing weekend! Chris and I are grateful, humbled and blessed by your kindness!
Business Response:

Thank you so much, Michele....I loved meeting both you and Chris. I love the winter-wonderland photo you took from your room...thank you for sharing! Happy you enjoyed the food and cookies too. I really appreciate your taking the time to write a review. Hope to see you back again soon!
