My husband and I chose the Cloran Mansion for our Babymoon. We stayed for two nights, and opted in for the Pampered Parents package. Upon arrival we had a cheese and fruit tray and some sparkling grape juice. The mansion was in a great location... kind of on the outskirts of the busier area of Galena, but a short, 5... More

We love hosting our Babymoon Packages. We really enjoyed visiting with you at breakfast. We wish you all our best with the arrival of your son. Remember parents need a little getaway every once in a while. Take advantage of your "Welcome Home " discount on your next visit, and bring pictures. More

My husband and I recently stayed two night at the Cloran Mansion Bed & Breakfast. We booked the private cottage and really had a nice time. The privacy of our own cottage was a plus, and the space was perfect for us - comfy bed, whirlpool tub, swivel TV, small kitchen area...everything we needed was provided. We also had the... More

The hospitality and service was excellent. You were really made to feel at home, the common areas and access to Carmine or Cheryl if you needed them. Our room was very nice with all of the amenities we needed for our anniversary get away. The family style breakfast was very good with all that you wanted to eat. We highly... More

We loved the Cloran, it was a beautiful Mansion in Galena that offers excellent rooms and outstanding service by both inn-keepers. The breakfast was outstanding and the owners were nice to talk with and provided to all of our needs during our stay. I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast when visiting Galena, Illinois.

Mansion and gardens were beautiful and inviting. The room was clean, cozy and quiet - even though most of the time spent was sightseeing. Bed was extremely comfortable. A ton of amenities that make a person feel welcome. Hosts were gracious and accommodating. Breakfast was divine! Plan on returning in the future!

I stayed at the Cloran Condo with my boyfriend this past weekend & we had a wonderful time. The mansion was so pretty & we felt very much at ease when we visited for breakfast. The food was delicious. The owners work very hard to make sure you are completely satisfied with your stay. We got couples massages & a... More

Stayed in the cottage adjacent to the mansion, which was spacious yet cozy. Everything was perfect and Cheryl and Carmine were wonderful hosts. Breakfast each morning was delicious. I would return in a heart beat.

We stayed in "Ann's Room" which was decorated with very good taste. The only criticism was that the bathroom could have used a little more shelf space. Also reading light on the left side of the bed was almost non-existent. But otherwise, except for these small grips, the room was lovely. Cloran has an extensive DVD library which is more... More

This is our seventh visit to what we affectionately call "our happy place". It is a pure slice of heaven on earth. There is something for everyone here - a room that will meet each person's individual tastes! We have stayed in almost every room, but have adopted Ann's room as our personal favorite. The comfortable bed provides for a... More
