“This is a very special place to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2009

The Cloran Mansion holds a very special place in my heart. Carmine and Cheryl are two of the greatest people that we have ever met.
We were married at the Cloran Mansion in September of 2002 and we have been treated like family ever since. Carmine and Cheryl are very dear friends and the B&B is one of our very favorite places.
Not only is the Cloran Mansion the perfect relaxing getaway, it is ideal for a wedding/honeymoon location. Carmine and Cheryl, as well as several other businesses in town, went far beyond our expectations in making our wedding an event to remember.
We do not feel the year is complete if we do not get an opportunity to return to the mansion or at least stop by to visit our dear friends.
This is the ultimate in hospitality and comfort. Anyone who is disappointed in their visit to the Cloran Mansion is obviously impossible to please. Carmine and Cheryl take every guest's personal comfort very seriously.

Carmine and Cheryl have thought of everything. The home is charming, the breakfast is out of this world ( best I've ever had and I've traveled a lot!), the yard is inviting and relaxing, guests have thier own " room" where they can get coffee, cookies, use a microwave, get ice, choose from what seemd like a couple of hundred movie DVD's, choose some music CD's ( DVD and CD players in every room), use the laptop, or read a book. The guest rooms each have a small refrigerator-which for me, was the most attractive ammenity. Every room has it's own bathroom-no sharing! There are massage therapists who come right to the house to give massages. Whatever you do-get the massage! Seriously. Get the massage. Quite honestly, if you do nothing more than come to Galena for this incredible breakfast and a massage, it still may be the only vacation you need this year!

We had a great time at Cloran Mansion. Our room at Alice's was charming and cozy, the purple color theme and the white curtain makes it more romantic. The breakfast was wonderful, and the peanut butter cookies were delicious! We really like the fact that the owners were very accomodating, with popcorn and movies library, blankets in the gazebo, and a firepit outside. We'd highly recommend Cloran Mansion.

The owners are very knowledgeable about the home and were very easy to talk to. Ann's room was very pretty and comfortable. The breakfasts were wonderful, although we could have used less food. The upstairs library, which included books and movies and CD's, was very nice.

This was the best honeymoon I could've given to my husband. If you like (or need) peace, quiet, and relaxation then the Cloran Mansion is the place to go. Carmine & Cheryl are the best, friendliest, caring people I've ever met. This was my husband and mine's first time staying at a bed & breakfast so we were a little leary at first, but the hospitality we received was overwhelming. We got lost, and Carmine called to see what the hold-up was and directed us there via phone. Upon our arrival he was awaiting us outside with a warm welcome and smile. The mansion itself on the inside was beautiful the rooms were perfect (they have satelite t.v. with ESPN channels so my husband was in heaven, because he didn't have to miss any of the playoff games), all rooms had a whirlpool tub and shower. Everything was clean and neat and definitely worth the price. I have and will continue to recommend this place to everyone I know. My husband and I have even decided to make this location our permanent anniversay spot!

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and decided to try a B&B for the first time. After our experience at the Cloran Mansion, we wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Cheryl and Carmine have created a wonderful atmosphere that makes you feel right at home. The breakfast was incredible...my wife would like to see a Cloran Mansion Breakfast Cookbook for sale.
