It was our first time at a B&B and I was VERY happy with my stay. We stayed in Ann's Room and the Tower Suite. The rooms were clean, cozy, quiet, comfy beds... More

We were honored to host your 1st Anniversary and your first stay at a Bed and Breakfast. It can be a bit uncomfortable when you do not know what to expect. We are so pleased that you felt welcome and comfortable. Later breakfast is popular with many guests. We hope to see you both again sometime when your travels bring... More

My wife and I needed to get away from "life" for a couple days. We stayed at the Condo, it was absolutely what we needed. The very large whirlpool tub was perfect for decompressing from stress. In addition to the wonderful accommodations, our hosts went out of their way to try to meet our many food allergy issues. If we're... More

Special dietary needs are not usually a problem. You were very helpful in letting us know what your restrictions are. This gives us an opportunity to prepare. So glad the Condo worked out for you. It does have a great tub. The TV above the tub is pretty nice too. It was our pleasure meeting you both and hosting your... More

It is always nice to hear that your expectations were met and sometimes even exceeded. Breakfast is our time to get to know everyone a little better. Carmine takes great pride in ensuring no one ever leaves the table hungry or disappointed. We hope you will chose the Cloran Mansion if your travels bring you back to Galena. More

The Cloran Mansion was the perfect place to stay for our weekend in Galena. Cheryl and Carmine were wonderful hosts and were very accommodating to my dietary restrictions. The breakfast was incredible and tasted better than any breakfast restaurant we have been to! The Sara Suite was spacious and comfortable with beautiful views of the front and side landscape. They...

Maggie, It can be difficult at times having to alter your meals because of restrictions. We try our best to make your breakfast as close to everyone else's as possible. It helped letting us know in advance so we can be prepared. You two looked so happy spending time together at the private table. We hope to host your stay... More

It was an excellent stay! Rooms are very clean and Carmine and Cheryl are very friendly and great hosts. We spent the weekend in Galena with friends and would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was wonderful and so much food you can skip lunch.

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary weekend and decided it time to explore Galena. I hopped on Trip Advisor and looked for a quaint B&B, and that is where I found The Cloran Masion Owned and Expertly run by Carmine and Cheryl. From the moment we booked until we drove home, it was top notch!... More

I have reviewed the Cloran Mansion previously, so this review will be relatively brief. After staying in a number of B&B's in Galena over the years, we booked a stay at the Cloran Mansion 9 years ago and have not stayed anywhere else while visiting this historic city as a yearly "get away" destination. Obviously we like the hosts, Carmine... More
