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

We couldn't be happier with our choice! The house is beautiful and the breakfast is beyond amazing! Something different each day. I will compare all breakfast with the Cloran!! The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely be returning!!!

We have made many trips to Galena; this was our first stay at Cloran Mansion: a lovely and comfortable home. Carmine and Cheryl provided scrumptious breakfasts. We really enjoyed our stay and can only imagine how pretty the grounds are in spring-fall. (We were there in snowy and cold February.)

Great experience for our first time in a B&B after being married over 25 years. Fireplace was nice on a super cold night. Very nice room (we stayed in Johns room) and delicious morning breakfast. Cheryl and Carmine were very hospitable and made us feel at home. Great experience and will do over.

We stayed one night in the tower room. It was bitterly cold outside but toasty and comfortable in our room. Our hosts were very nice and the accommodations were fantastic. We really enjoyed the fireplace, which warmed the room and added ambience without making us uncomfortably hot, as we have experienced at other properties. We also liked the private jacuzzi... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for one night during a short trip to Galena and the mansion is beautiful. We stayed in the Tower Suite room and loved it! The jacuzzi up in the tower above the bathroom was awesome. We loved the little fireplace in there along with the one in the main room. The bed was... More

This was the perfect place for our elopement. We'd had a year filled with stress and heartache from the passings of multiple family members. Finding a place that knew how to manage all the details so we could focus on relaxing and enjoying the romance of the moment was a priority. Cheryl & Carmine were absolutely the right choice as...

We recently had our wedding here and booked the a few of our closest package. What a wonderful experience. Carmine and Cheryl were phenomenal and very accommodating. Both our families have raved about how much they enjoyed the ceremony. Anyone looking for a wonderful and easy wedding experience please consider this gem of a bed and breakfast.
