This was the very first time my girlfriend and I stayed at a B&B and we were able to book the cottage which was so beautiful, but actually any room in the house would be an awesome experience as well I feel. Cheryl and Carmine could not have been nicer and I feel help make your stay experience even better... More

Love this beautiful mansion with many amenities perfect for pampering and relaxing. We had Sarah's suite. This large, gorgeous room is filled with Victorian treasurers, it's own fireplace and whirlpool and a bed comfortable enough to rival the most luxurious hotels. If that isn't enough, Cheryl and Carmine are warm, caring hosts whose passion for meeting and serving their guests... More

We had the most incredible stay at the Cloran Mansion. We were greeted like family by Carmine and Cheryl when we arrived, but given the privacy we wanted as soon as we were settled!! We stayed in the Tower Room. It was extremely comfortable and cozy with the fireplace and Jacuzzi Tub. Because of the warmth and everything offered at... More

Sincere thanks to Carmine & Cheryl for their warmth and fantastic hospitality (special touches everywhere!). The Tower Room was extremely comfortable (and so unique with the hot tub in the tower!), the breakfasts were magnificent, and we truly felt at home. Carmine & Cheryl have a wonderful philosophy and were extremely helpful in recommending dining options and even with securing... More

Cloran Mansion Bed and Breakfast is a marvelous property with extremely professional and friendly owners. Carmine and Cheryl have crafted a wonderfully relaxing and comfortable environment which we fully enjoyed during a bleak January weekend. Despite the numerous attractions in Galena, it was hard to leave our warm and inviting room. We'll be back as soon as possible.

Carmine and Cheryl owners and operators of Cloran Mansion Bed & Breakfast are wonderful people. They were so warm and helpful. There were three couples including me who chose this B&B for our anniversary/New Years getaway. The food was delicious, and by far the best of any B&B that I have ever stayed at. I am so glad to have... More

This was our first trip spent at a B&B and we loved it! The hosts were very helpful and considerate and the room was spotless. Carmine was wonderful at explaining everything about the house and the room and what to expect (like the fireplace popping when it warmed up). We loved the fireplace (which quickly warmed our room on a... More

I have traveled thru a large part of the USA and stayed at numerous hotels, motels and lodges. I am not sure that any of them could have exceeded our expectations to the extent that the proprietors of Cloran Mansion, Carmine and Cheryl, did for this special week-end. Amazing sense of welcome from the moment we walked thru the front... More

Thank you for such a wonderful review. It was our pleasure to host your daughters wedding and we're happy that everything turned out as nice as it did.

First timers at Cloran and it was excellent. House and hosts were great, food was amazing, room was great as well, no complaints. Even the seasonal decorations were awesome. The only non-perfect comment (not really a complaint) is the location--if you want a short walk downtown, it's a mile or two away, but it's still very close and parking downtown... More
