My wife and I stayed two nights at the Cloran Mansion in the Tower Room. This was our first Bed & Breakfast experience, and we could not have chosen a better inn to start with. Cheryl and Carmine were extremely pleasant and inviting and made our two day get-away a memorable one. The Tower Room was absolutely beautiful and the... More

The Cloran Mansion is the best place to stay in Galena!! Breakfast was amazing every morning. We stayed in John's room and it was very cozy with the fireplace and whirlpool.... Very romantic!! We are already booked for next year and won't stay anywhere else.

This is the second time we have stayed at Cloran Mansion and it won't be our last. Antonio's Cottage is ideal for our "furry family", Cairn Terriers Skippy and Molly. The cottage is adjacent to the main building and has everything you could want...comfy bed with wonderful cushy linens....adorable kitchenette with Keurig coffeemaker....a wonderful jacuzzi tub....and a fireplace. Carmine and... More

I decided to take my girlfriend, Kathy out of town, and suggested a bed and breakfast place to stay, she told me she never had experienced one in her life! I ask a local resident about the area and was referred to Cloran Mansion. I took Kathy out for us to get a way and her birthday, we stayed at... More

We had the pleasure of staying in theTower Room of Cloran Mansion and we could not have been happier. The owners are a Wonderful couple that make your stay so special. Not to mention the spectacular breakfast they provide every day. The grounds were amazing and we can't wait to go back in the fall. This was our anniversary weekend... More

The Cloran Mansion was the perfect place for our romantic honeymoon! We were B&B 1st timers and it surpassed our expectations. We had the Tower Suite with a king bed, fireplace & jacuzzi tub (for 2). Our room was very comfortable & private. The breakfasts were absolutely amazing. Carmine & Cheryl were awesome hosts as well. We'll definitely be back!

Our stay at the condo was amazing! We had a short drive over to the mansion for breakfast in the morning. The breakfast cooked by Carmin and his wife was absolutely amazing! We really enjoyed our stay and will be sure to stop back soon! Thanks again your very satisfied customer Drew.

This was our first trip to Galena, off season and mid-week was perfect for us, looking for a little down time for two very busy people. The reservation and check-in process way very simple and quick. The owners of the Cloran are genuine and warm. Our room was ready earlier than anticipated and they were kind enough to call and... More

I thought I would surprise my wife and took her here for our 22nd Anniversary. I booked the room for two nights. We were greeted by the friendly owners who right away made us feel at home. Our room (Ann's Room) was better then the pictures they had online. The room was spotless, warm, and perfect. The double person whirlpool... More
