Meet the Innkeepers

Meet Resa & Chris Larson

How many years have you been an innkeeper?
We have been innkeepers at Lamberson Guest House since September 2020. Prior to purchasing Lamberson we lived in the Minneapolis area working in Human Resources and the Financial Investments industry. Our love of entertaining, food and serving people attracted us to be innkeepers and we are overjoyed being the caretakers of this beautiful home. 

What is your favorite part about our community/Galena?
The Galena community is very welcoming and hospitable to everyone. Each time we stayed in the area we met wonderful, kind local people and it didn’t take long for us to know that we wanted to be part of this community. Everybody is happy here and how can you not be when you’re surrounded by the beauty of this region. The history and quaint places in Galena is unique and we continue to find many new “bests” as we explore the area. 

Favorite event in Galena & way to participate and give back?

Christmas holiday is our favorite time of the year. Fire In the Sky and Luminaria are magical events every year that celebrate the season in such a unique way. We love sharing these events with our guests and create social activities to celebrate this special time. We are very fortunate to partner with the Galena Country Tourism, Chamber of Commerce and the Galena Downtown Business Association to provide charitable and civic events. 

What fun things can your guests expect when they stay at the Lamberson Guest House?
The experience we share with our guests is an environment that is relaxing, comfortable and just like coming home. When guests walk into Lamberson GH, we want them to not think about their day-to-day lives and feel the quiet, spa-like environment of comfortable rooms and amenities. Our location allows guests to relax in the rocking chairs on the front porch with views overlooking Galena or sit in the courtyard by the fountain with a beverage and appetizers. We are only steps to Main Street Galena and all of its amazing attractions.
