We selected Cloran Mansion base on all the great review on Tripadvisor. And tripadvisor was right. Cloran Mansion B&B is one of the most comfortable stay we had. The house is comfortable. The owner, Carmine and Cheryl were super nice people. They went above and beyond to make the guest as comfortable as possible. We had such a relax and... More

Just stayed at the Cloran condo and had breakfast at the B and B. Probalbly the best one we have ever had at a B and B and we have been to many! The owners are very nice people who know how to balance chatting with guests and letting the guest chat with each other. They run a first class... More

My husband and I stayed in the Cloran Condo at Longhollow Point Inn. We loved the option of having more privacy outside of town but we still got to enjoy the amazing breakfast at the mansion every morning. The condo was very clean. I loved the large whirlpool tub with flatscreen tv above it. Breakfast at the mansion is an... More

Four sisters stayed for the first time at the Cloran Mansion. We have stayed in B &B's all over Minnesota. We had a great time. We were met and made to feel welcome immediately. Sarah's room was spacious and comfortable even for the four of us. Breakfast was always interesting and usually filled us so much we skipped lunch! It... More

My three sisters and I stayed in Sara's suite. We had a grand visit. Sara's room is large, beautifully decorated and full of amenities. Big bed, fridge with water and pop, microwave with popcorn available, Keurig with tea and coffee available! Even decaf! It's the little touches that Cheryl and Carmine think of that make you feel like royalty and... More

We were traveling though to Oregon. Was our second stay at a bed and breakfast. First was kinda odd. Cheryl and Carmine was our second and they made us welcome from the very start. We loved Sarah's room. My journal says it is home of the Bubble King! Everyone at breakfast made us feel welcome.If we ever make it back... More

The Claron Mansion is a great place to stay in Galena. The owners of the Claron run it because they love people. Their story of how they came to own the B&B demonstrates that they own one for the right reasons. It was a lifelong goal for Cheryl. While Carmine was initially reluctant to own a B&B, he has learned... More

We just spent a "picture-perfect" day at the Cloran Mansion in Galena. I was looking for that "B&B" experience but one that we enable us to bring our dogs. Antonio's Cottage, a private cottage adjacent to the mansion, fit the bill to a tee . Hosts, Carmine and Cheryl were warm and inviting and went to great lengths to insure... More

We had high hope for this B&B based on the many reviews, unfortunately, the B&B did not live up to the spirit of the reviews. The innkeepers seemed pleasant on the phone and the place looked nice from the outside. Inside it was not much of a mansion, in size or décor, as it is even lacking the flourish and... More
