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!

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
