We have stayed at many B&Bs over the last 35 years, our experience Cloran Mansion was in the top 1% in all respects. Starting backwards, the breakfast is really something to look forward to. Our room and the whole house were absolutely spotless. The owners could not do enough for us upon arrival and while we were there, we definitely... More

We stayed in Antonio's Cottage with our two shelties and had the most relaxing time. The cottage is beautiful with a whirlpool tub and fireplace. It's private, we felt like we were in our own little world. Our hosts were friendly wonderful people. I am not much of a breakfast eater but at the Cloran it was my favorite meal... More

My wife and I just completed another wonderful stay at the Cloran mansion. In our opinion this bed and breakfast should be ranked #1 in Galena, not #4. Granted, we haven't stayed at every bed and breakfast available, but we did stay a good number of them until we booked a week-end at the Cloran Mansion. We have been returning... More

We have now been immortalized with a brick in the Memory Garden of the Cloran Mansion which means we completed our 5th(and hopefully many more) stays.Each room has its own character and they are all thoughtfully furnished. We have stayed in Antonio's Cottage(rustic),Sara's Suite(formal), and Ann's Room(rustic). All three rooms served us well. The breakfast is fantastic and is served... More

If you are headed to historic Galena, Ill., and appreciate well-run bed and breakfasts, consider a stay at the 1880 Italianate Victorian Cloran Mansion (cloranmansion.com). My wife and I stayed there one weeknight in July and were pleased with it. Located just a 5-minute drive from the many downtown shops and restaurants, the Cloran is a beautiful brick house furnished... More

This was our second time we stayed at the Cloran Mansion B&B, but this time we booked three rooms (both my adult children stayed with significant others) and we also booked a Cloran wedding package and stayed in the cottage ourselves. It was an unbelievable wedding experience having our wedding ceremonies there and the day was so beautiful around the... More

My husband and I recently celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at Cloran Mansion in Galena, IL. Cheryl & Carmine warmly welcomed us into their beautiful B&B. We stayed in the Tower Room and the room was simply beautiful. The tower is where the two person whirlpool tub is located for the Tower Room. The stairs a bit steep and close,... More

We recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at the Cloran Mansion. We renewed our vows with our family present. Everything was wonderful. We rented four rooms and the cottage. The grounds were gorgeous and the rooms were nicely decorated. The gazebo and fire pit areas were a nice gathering place. The food was incredible. Carmine and Cheryl were very accommodating... More

Carmine and Cheryl are nice hosts and welcoming. They have kept great care of their b&b and it is very cozy and clean. They have thought of every detail, from warm hand towels after breakfast to an alphabetized DVD collection and coffee and cookies any time you want. It's a good 8 blocks from Main street- not bad getting there... More

We spent a wonderful 3 days in Sara's Suite - in fact, we were reluctant to leave to go out to dinner or sightsee! Beautiful, comfortable, romantic. Some quiet time in the gazebo was a treat. And also - not having to get up too early for the fabulous breakfast was much appreciated. This will certainly be our first choice... More
