We stayed at Cloran Condo at Long Hollow Point for my husband's birthday.When we arrived at Galena, it was raining very hard. We hardly could see the road. We finally arrived at the Cloran Mansion, and the owners gave us the direction to Cloran Condo at Long Hollow Point. The Condo is not in the same area as the Mansion,... More

My wife and I booked the Tower Room at Cloran Mansion because we wanted a hot tub and loved the idea it was a little separate from the rest of the room. When we arrived for check in we were greeted warmly by the owner and given a tour of the house. We were then left to enjoy the clean,... More

Me and my wife stayed here for our honeymoon. I was hesitant because of all the stories of other bed and breakfasts. We stayed in Antonio's cottage. It was super cozy! The best part had to be the fireplace on front of the whirlpool, or maybe the heated floors. It was the best idea ever! Not only were the owners... More

First time at a B&B and it was absolutely amazing. Carmine and Cheryl are very welcoming and make you feel right at home. The rooms no matter which one you get are spectacular. I was in the Sara Suite which is right by the front entrance and was a little concerned that there would be an issue with noise with... More

If you are going to a B and B in Galena the tower room at the Cloran Mansion is the most unique experience. Also make sure you add the private dinner in the dining room. Everything detail is covered at this place! The best B and B we ever stayed at. A must stay in Galena

As a frequent visitor of B&B's, this B&B is perfect. B&B's are known for top quality breakfasts and hospitality, in my opinion. I have read all of the prior reviews before and after our stay, as well as read all of the information on Cloran website. We booked the Alice room because even though I would have loved the amenities... More

We recently stayed and got married at Cloran Mansion! Carmine and Cheryl were great! We had a great time there and it was great to have them take care of all the wedding arrangements! They thought of everything and made it very easy for us. They have great attention to detail and know what the wedding needs to be unique... More

Spent 2 nights here with my husband for a relaxing weekend. What a treat! Hospitality and food where fabulous! This is what a B& B stay is suppose to be! Carmine and Cheryl truly have a passion for inn-keeping and it shows! Definitely worth a stay!
