This is a fabulous place, a historic mansion lovingly kept and decorated, with great hosts and absolutely wonderful food. Our room was the smallest and least expensive in the house -- Alice's Room. It was large enough for us, and had a nice closet and small but functional bathroom. There also was a small fridge tucked into the closet, which... More

My husband and I enjoyed our first trip to Galena by staying in the Tower Room at the Cloran Mansion for two nights. It was a wonderful experience. The couple who own this inn are so sweet and accommodating. Anything you need, just ask them. The breakfasts are absolutely out of this world! Pancakes, potatoes, eggs made to order, fresh... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Cloran Mansion in the Tower Room. This was our first Bed & Breakfast experience, and we could not have chosen a better inn to start with. Cheryl and Carmine were extremely pleasant and inviting and made our two day get-away a memorable one. The Tower Room was absolutely beautiful and the... More

The Cloran Mansion is the best place to stay in Galena!! Breakfast was amazing every morning. We stayed in John's room and it was very cozy with the fireplace and whirlpool.... Very romantic!! We are already booked for next year and won't stay anywhere else.

This is the second time we have stayed at Cloran Mansion and it won't be our last. Antonio's Cottage is ideal for our "furry family", Cairn Terriers Skippy and Molly. The cottage is adjacent to the main building and has everything you could want...comfy bed with wonderful cushy linens....adorable kitchenette with Keurig coffeemaker....a wonderful jacuzzi tub....and a fireplace. Carmine and... More

I decided to take my girlfriend, Kathy out of town, and suggested a bed and breakfast place to stay, she told me she never had experienced one in her life! I ask a local resident about the area and was referred to Cloran Mansion. I took Kathy out for us to get a way and her birthday, we stayed at... More

Not to mention the spectacular breakfast they provide every day. The grounds were amazing and we can't wait to go back in the fall. This was our anniversary weekend... More

The Cloran Mansion was the perfect place for our romantic honeymoon! We were B&B 1st timers and it surpassed our expectations. We had the Tower Suite with a king bed, fireplace & jacuzzi tub (for 2). Our room was very comfortable & private. The breakfasts were absolutely amazing. Carmine & Cheryl were awesome hosts as well. We'll definitely be back!
