The safety and well-being of our guests and staff are the highest priority at Abe's Spring Street Guest House. We have decided to temporarily suspend breakfast service until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience.

During your stay, we will be providing limited housekeeping services, so that no one will be entering your room during your stay. Fresh towels and amenities will be replaced daily outside of your suite upon request as well as trash removal. We will continue with rigorous cleaning and sanitizing between visits.

Named for the last brew master, Rudolph Speier, who owned and operated the City Brewery, one of Galena‘s predominant breweries in the 1800s, of which the guest house building was the icehouse and the adjacent Stone House Pottery building was the main aging facility.
