“The best and most luxurious place!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Cloran Mansion is the perfect place to stay! My husband and I stayed last weekend in the Cloran Mansion Condo at Longhollow Point Inn.

When we opened the door to the condo all we said was WOW! The room and bath room was Very clean. The pictures on the web page do not do the room justice! The big Jacuzzi tub fantastic!

My husband and I went to the Cloran Mansion each morning for breakfast. The breakfast was outstanding! Different each day and so much food we did not have to eat all day! The best part about the breakfast was that it was not served until 9:00 am -10:30 so we didn’t feel rushed in the morning.

Cheryl and Camine where the perfect host, welcoming and friendly made us feel right at home.

My husband and I will be back! The best and most luxurious place!

My husband and I spent last weekend at the Cloran Mansion. Carmine was very friendly and honest when I called to inquire about rates and location. Since they are a mile away we did choose to drive when visiting downtown Galena. The upside to being further away is that it is much quieter. We arrived in town early and Cheryl graciously greeted us, gave us a tour, and since our room was ready, allowed us to check in early. The mansion and all of the rooms are very clean and charming. The pictures on the website are a true representation to what the house looks like. They thoughtfully left us an anniversary card with "lovebird" cookies in our room. We enjoyed the firepit, especially because they prepare the fire for you. Breakfast was fantastic both days! You hear a lot about the french toast, which is great, but the blueberry pancakes were my favorite. They also have standing reservations at several restaurants which we took advantage of on Saturday because we hadn't made any. I have wanted to try a B&B for a long time and am very thankful we picked Cloran Mansion as it was everything I hoped it would be. My husband and I will definitely stay at Cloran Mansion again! Thank you Carmine and Cheryl!

The Cloran Mansion is the most elegant B&B we have stayed in and it has spoiled us for any other B&B. Cheryl and Camine show pride in their home and a desire to enhance their brand. They showed an obvious passion for what they do and were great hosts/tour directors/concierge service...and are so genuine. They seem to sincerely enjoy their guests and love to visit without being intrusive. The food is outstanding and more than plentiful.

We highly recommend the Cloran Mansion B&B...We will be back.

Room Tip: There is only one smaller room. The others are large with elegant appointment. We stayed in John'...

Thank you for such a wonderful review. Spoiling our guests is actually more fun and rewarding for us than our guests. Cheryl gets to be everyones Mom and loves taking care of them.
Hopefully we will see you again.
Thanks again

We stayed this past weekend (Labor Day) at the Cloran Mansion. Everything went so smoothly and turned out just as we had hoped. The mansion is beautiful and the rooms are adorable. The owners are so sweet! They greeted us right away, gave us a tour, made dinner reservations, and generally made us feel very welcome. But the best part about this B&B has to be the breakfast! Cheryl is an amazing cook. Breakfast both days was different, but so delicious. My favorite was the blueberry pancakes, potatoes, sausage, and fruit salad (and eggs made to order!) We would definitely recommend this place for anyone who's looking for a relaxing weekend in Galena.

Room Tip: We stayed in John's room, and it was perfect. Great view of the pond out front!

Cloran Mansion is beautiful! The room was very comfortable with many little extras that made us feel quite pampered! Cheryl is a wonderful cook. Downtown is a bit of a drive, but that doesn't really matter as you will probably be driving regardless of where you stay. Beautiful city with many interesting buildings and great restaurants! Perry Street Brasserie is a must - without a doubt the finest restaurant we have ever been to!
