“2nd stay just as great as the first”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

Went back for our second stay to celebrate our 10 yr anniversary and it was as amazing as the first time! Place was clean, quiet, beautiful, romantic and the service we get from Cheryl and Carmine you could not get at a 5 star hotel. Can wait to plan an our next visit.

I took my mom to the Cloran Mansion as a Mother's Day gift. We went midweek for 1 night. I wished we could have stayed for more. We had a short wonderful time. I will definitely stay here again. My mom has been to many Bed and Breakfasts and she said this was one of the best. The breakfast was outstanding. Better than any restaurant and Carmine tells a great story. You can tell they love what they are doing and love to share their home. When we arrived they showed us to a different room than I had booked and said that they were upgrading us! So thoughtful. Our stay was too short as we really didn't get to enjoy the gazebo and pond as much as we would have liked. We will stay longer next time. A great stay and a big thank you to Carmine and Cheryl. Sincerely Karen (Algonquin,Il.) and Donna (Johnson City, NY)

Thank you for such a nice review. It is such a pleasure to host a Mother/Daughter get-a-way. We're glad that you had a nice time and upgrading your room was our way of thanking you for choosing us from all of the available and wonderful Bed and Breakfasts that Galena has to offer. Hopefully we will see you again

Just completed a return visit to the Cloran Mansion and we were pleased to find that nothing had changed. The hosts, Carmine and Cheryl were as friendly and helpful as they have always been, the room was just as clean and comfortable, the breakfast is still the best that we've experienced after many years of staying at B&B's, and the little amenities have not been forgotten. The Cloran Mansions does continue to shine as one of the best!! We intend to return soon.

Room Tip: Rooms choice would be a personal preference. Thus, be sure to visit their website to view the pictu...

The location is ideal, it is tucked away from the hussel and bussel of downtown and highway traffic, yet close enough to the downtown area for convenience. It has very beautiful grounds. clean rooms, and excellent breakfast. I would recommend the Cloran Mansion to anyone wanting a quiet and peaceful getaway.

My husband and I stumbled upon the Cloran Mansion whilst looking for a short getaway before our first baby arrives. After reading reviews, we booked. Please believe me when I say it is the ultimate place for rest and relaxation! Carmine welcomed us at the door, showing us to our comfortable and cozy room. Absolutely loved the whirlpool. The complimentary ammentities were a plus (coffee, cookies, bottled water, and soda.) I know everyone has read this before, but BREAKFAST..Amazing! Cinnamon roll pancakes. There is nothing left to say. The conversations shared between fellow guests, Carmine and Cheryl, and ourselves were very interesting and inviting. The mansion is located just minutes away from the all of the Main st shops and restaurants. This place is truly a gem, and we were so happy to have had the chance of staying here. Thank you Carmine and Cheryl for a beautiful and relaxing experience. We will be back.

Room Tip: Johns Room was very pretty and cozy with a great view of the pond and gazebo.

Lovely property and fabulous breakfast. Galena's downtown is a joy to spend a sunny afternoon walking around and then to come back and enjoy the quiet in the gazebo was the icing on the cake. Highly recommended!
