My husband and I recently stayed at Cloran Mansion for 5 nights. We stayed in the cottage which provided the privacy that we desired. Each morning we enjoyed the delicious meal that Carmine and Cheryl provided. I was nervous to eat there because I am a Celiac that reacts very easily to the slightest cross contamination. I ate breakfast there... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay and the Cloran Mansion. There were a lot of options for B & B's in Galena, I am glad we chose the Cloran. We had a very comfortable room with a fire place, Anne's room. The jacuzzi tub was great after walking Galena's shops all day. Beautiful place but he breakfast will... More

My girlfriend and I decided to spend an extended New Year's weekend at the Cloran Mansion B&B in Galena. Our stay was a tasteful, secluded sanctuary away from home. The location was easily accessible and close to downtown eateries and shopping. The fireplace, double Jacuzzi, free sodas and water in the mini-bar and hospitality made for a very special weekend....

You could tell we were newbies, but Cheryl and Carmine made us feel welcome from the start. Our cozy room with our own fireplace was very romantic. The breakfasts each morning were so delicious! We hope to return again.

We had an amazing stay at the Cloran Mansion! Despite inconveniencing the owners, Carmine and Cheryl, by coming 2 days earlier than our reservations, they graciously gave us their last room available. We loved Sara's suite with the spacious room and whirl pool! We can't wait to come back!

Eric and I enjoyed an overnight stay with Cheryl and Carmine. Their home was festively decorated for the holidays. Our room was beautiful with many complimentary extras we did not anticipate: Soda and bottled waters chilling in the refrigerator, wide selection of reading material and DVDs, whirlpool-bath equipped with pillows, music, fireplace and heater. Breakfast was a feast of baked... More

My wife and I stayed at the Cloran Condo for the weekend, Friday and Saturday. It was wonderful, our first time at a bed and breakfast. The condo gave us the perfect amount of privacy and Carmine and Cheryl make the 10 minute drive to the mansion well worth it, they are wonderful people that make you feel so welcome... More

My husband and I spent a night at the Cloran for fall leaf looking. Carmine and Cheryl are wonderful hosts. The breakfast is THE BEST! The food was delicious and so abundant! We stayed in Sara ' s Suite. It was quiet despite being near the front door. We would definitely recommend this B&B on your visit to Galena.
