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.

Thank you Cheryl and Carmine! After Jackie and I decided to elope and find a B&B to host our marriage, we looked at several online. Galena and The Cloran Mansion looked like what we were seeking. After a brief visit with each of you on the phone, we knew this was the place. With a few specifics and some parameters,... More

We have stayed in almost every BandB in Galena. Not only are the hosts so warm and welcoming, the home is so comfortable. We stayed just before Christmas and the holiday decorations were amazing. Each room was decorated and that is important to me. The breakfast were absolutely divine. What sets this place apart from the others is that breakfast... More

For our 2nd wedding anniversary, my husband and I chose Cloran Mansion for its overwhelmingly positive reviews and reasonable price for the luxe Tower Room - hot tub is located in its own tall, narrow room with built in fireplace/heater and sound system, up a ladder-like staircase from the bathroom. It's pretty amazing and well worth it to stay only... More

My boyfriend booked us a room at the Cloran Mansion for a romantic weekend getaway and it was fantastic! You can tell Carmine and Cheryl really enjoy having you there and they put so much effort into the decor and ambiance of the Mansion. We stayed in Alice's room (the smallest room but SUPER cozy!) and we loved it! Carmine... More
