The Claron Mansion is a great place to stay in Galena. The owners of the Claron run it because they love people. Their story of how they came to own the B&B demonstrates that they own one for the right reasons. It was a lifelong goal for Cheryl. While Carmine was initially reluctant to own a B&B, he has learned to be as passionate as Cheryl over their last 13 years of ownership. Their passion for owning a B&B can easily be seen by how they treat their guests. You will not be disappointed.
The Claron is about one mile west of downtown. This tranquil setting, including garden, pond, and gazebo allows people to retreat from the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives and rejuvenate their sole.
The breakfasts at the Claron are top notch. While both Carmine and Cheryl didn't grow up a chefs, the award they received from Georgia University and the accolades they have received show that they are quick learners.
The owner's passion for people have driven them to ask their quests what they want, and then deliver. For example, Carmine tells the store where one guest suggested that they provide a way to distinguish the room key from the B&B front door key. The next year, when the guest returned, Carmine had changed the front door key to have a rubber ring so that all guests can now easily distinguish which key to use. While this may seem like a small thing, it is just one example of many small corrections that Carmine and Cheryl have implemented over the years to ensure that their guests are happy. The accumulation of all of these small changes have ensured a great stay for each guest.
Thank you Carmine and Cheryl for a great experience for my wife and I in Galena.
