“Traveling all over the world...Cloran remains high on our list.”
Reviewed March 29, 2009

A great getaway, close to Chicago but worlds away. The Innkeepers, Carm and Cheryl, have the expertise to know when to engage people and when to let them have privacy. The facilities are well kept, the breakfast is exceptional, their services and words invaluable as we trekked around the area.

Wonderful!

Our hosts, Carmine and Cheryl, provided impeccable service and just the right touch for a one-night romantic get-away. We stayed in the "Alice" room upstairs, which was a comfortable room with a small fireplace, private bath, and even a flat screen TV with DVD. The "library" across the hall offered us great coffee at any time, a cookie jar, a huge DVD selection, as well as CDs to listen to in the room. Even though we enjoyed the downtown Galena area, it was nice having a lot to do back at the house, too. The finishing touch was the outstanding breakfast--made to order eggs and hashbrowns, fresh fruit, feather-light pancakes with powdered sugar and cherries, and more coffee. We enjoyed good conversation with the other guests and Carmine, and the warm towel provided by their granddaughter after the meal. All in all, a great romantic experience. We'll be back!

This is a very clean and cozy bed and breakfast. I suggest, if you have the opportunity to stay in the tower room. We loved it, and we really enjoyed the romantic whirlpool loft. The breakfast was delicious and kept me stuffed all day.

What a fun, relaxing trip. We have waited 10 years to get together because of family obligations. We are rebooking again in July or August. The breakfast you served us was outstanding! We had dinner at the LOG CABIN and what a meal that was. Our cottage was the perfect place to kick back and enjoy each other.
Thank you Thank you Thank you

My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Cloran Mansion. Carmine and Cheryl added some really personal and nice touches including a "Happy Anniversary" balloon, a bottle of wine, and a personalized card. The room we had, Ann's Room, was very nice, cozy, and romantic. It was better than the pics on the website and we were VERY happy with the room. We were greeted by Carmine with him using our names. It was a very nice and personal touch.

The breakfast was nothing less than fantastic. To say we were surprised would be an understatement! Not only was the food delicious, but there was plenty of it! This was our first bed and breakfast visit and it surely will not be our last! We plan on staying at the Cloran Mansion in the future. We would recommend it to anyone and everyone. It is well worth it!

We enjoyed the rooms. The decor was beautiful and romantic. I had made a mistake and booked for the wrong night and we were lucky enough to have another room available for us. The massages were wonderful. I highly recommend the special packages. The large breakfasts and endless supplies of cookies were a plus, too!

Our first visit, We got married on the property. Carmine & Cheryl
arranged everything and it was exactlly what we were looking for. The Cottage was perfect in every way for "newlyweds".
Carmine & Cheryl and thier staff were attentive to every detail and one couldn't ask for a better breakfast.
Our recent stay, was just a weekend getaway. Just like the first, everything was perfect. Sara's Suite was well appointed, fully stocked and very comfortable. I had e-mailed ahead and asked that roses I had ordered be taken care of and on our arrival, they sat on a table in the room, arranged and watered. I couldn't ask for more.
The other guests (on both visits) are just what you'd expect. From all walks of life with many diffrent intrests, however, Carmine & Cheryl have a way of getting everone conversing about anything one could think of. They are truly WONDERFUL HOSTS.
We have recommended the Cloran Mansion to friends and family and would recommend it to everone. We would give it 10 stars if we could.
Sincerely,
Paul and Lisa Campbell, Cortland Illinois.

  • Liked — Breakfast. Carmine & Cheryl do know how to put out a spread!
  • Disliked — Hard to complain about nothing.
