Stephanie and Jeff were great hosts. The property has the prefect location overlooking Galena. The house has a lot of history and the rooms are large. The breakfast was amazing and was like a work of art. Thank you Stephanie for getting us a restaurant reservation on a busy weekend.

Resa and Chris were amazing hosts. The three-course breakfast is amazing and the wine and cheese platter at 4pm was so nice! The house is beautiful and it was truly a lovely experience. I highly recommend staying here when you are in Galena!

This property is in the PERFECT location - just steps away from everything downtown has to offer. Resa and Chris could not be more kind. They even helped my fiance pull off a last-minute proposal! Our rooms were immaculate, the food was delicious, and the grounds were lovely. We will be back.

Everything about the Lamberson Guest House was awesome. The house is beautiful. Our room was so comfortable. The home cooked breakfasts were out of this world. You can see and feel the love put into this bed and breakfast. Michelle is such a sweet lady. My husband and I couldn't have asked for more at her bed and breakfast. But if we did, I know Michelle would have done her best to get it for us. This is definitely our destination for future Galena trips.

Gorgeously Restored Galena Gem
My wife and I were looking for a quick weekend get away. I came across the Lamberson House as an option; so happy we did. You will feel like you are at home in this B&B. Michelle the owner and host is so incredibly polite and accommodating. The home is fully restored and in incredible condition. Modern bathrooms and very comfortable bedding in a fantastic location overlooking picturesque Galena. We will for sure be returning as this was above and beyond a hotel or rivaling B&B's.
