This was our first visit to a B&B. Cheryl and Carmine were warm and friendly hosts, our room was charming and we can't say enough about the breakfasts. Cheryl and Carmine thank you for making our visit so special. Darryl & Diane

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

I stayed in the Cloran Mansion's guest house on a girls' vacation recently, and we were so thrilled to get such wonderful personable treatment. We were all impressed by the grounds and beautiful dining room, as well as the movie selection offered to guests. The breakfasts had something for every taste and were fresh and delicious. The guest house was... More

Very clean with soft fluffy towels, whirlpool.... Robes too. We were very comfortable and could not think of anything we would have added! A very quiet and relaxing B... More

The Cloran Mansion was everything we dreamed of while planning our trip. The room was beautiful and the whirlpool tub puts this room over the top for a romantic getaway. The innkeepers are extremely nice and helpful in making your stay as enjoyable and comfortably as possibly. The breakfast is amazing, all natural fruit along with a wide array of... More

We stayed in Antonio's cottage for the weekend. We needed wheelchair accessibility and that was the perfect room for it. Lots of space, big bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and had a large hot tub next to the fireplace. I was able to get a tray and bring breakfast to the cottage which was definitely a plus. The area... More

We joined friends of ours at the Cloran Mansion for a three night stay. We had a wonderful experience and enjoyed meeting Cheryl and Carmine as well as their other guests. The breakfast was amazingly good with something different each morning. Due to our mistake in not reading carefully, we ended up at the condo which is 7 miles away... More

My husband and I stayed at the Cloran Mansion for 1 night after our wedding in order to recover before returning to work (we are honeymooning in a month). Carmine and Cheryl were wonderful hosts. We stayed in Antonio's Cottage and it was private and so comfortable. We added the Just for Two package to our reservation and we really... More

Leah, We were happy to host your mini-honeymoon. Your massages and private dinner were the perfect way to relax and unwind after a very busy time of wedding planning and the big event. We wish you both much happiness, love and a lifetime together. Cheryl and Carmine More

Just about .3 of a mile from Cloran Mansion, we pulled into a McDonald's lot with a flat tire. And so began our 2-day Galena Getaway! The first thing we did was call Cheryl at the Cloran, letting her know that we "had arrived," and to find out where we could get help with the tire problem. She was very... More

Michael, Thank you for your review and kind words. The Tower Room is unique. The private staircase and location of the whirlpool makes the room very special. Many of our guests make the walk into town. They enjoy the walk through the neighborhood to town. We were sorry to hear about your flat tire but glad it was resolved so... More

Stay was superb! We stayed for 2 nights (Friday and Sat). We stayed in Antonio's cottage, which was outside of the mansion. The cottage was so cute, had a whirlpool tub, little kitchenette, and was dog friendly! Our dog really enjoyed the stay too. Breakfast was AMAZING! Best homemade breakfast we've had in awhile! Will definatly return with future visits!... More
