Reviewed 19 July 2007

Had a very relaxing weekend at the Cloran Mansion. Cheryl and Carmine are very accomodating and very friendly. We enjoyed our conversations with other guests around the fire pit. Breakfast was superb and very satisfing. Great experience!

I'm surprised this B&B is rated only #7 of all Galena B&B's! I can't dream up a better experience than Cheryl & Carmine delivered - everything was truly perfect. We utilized all of the facility: the Tower Room hot tub, the soft robes, fridge, library (with coffee, snacks and movies), the fire pit, gazebo and fish pond! Positively lovely time - couldn't improve on it. We stayed two nights, and I can say the breakfast was hands above any other I've experienced at a B&B - simply phenomenal. The mansion is about a mile from town, which was nice - felt very peaceful, quiet and like our own place. Highly recommend this B&B!

  • Liked — The owners: cooking & people skills!
  • Disliked — Shower in our (Tower) room was a bit small, but all other rooms showers were big

Simply the best experience we've ever had in a B&B.
Beautiful property. Both grounds and rooms. Very quiet and relaxing. Wonderful breakfasts and friendly hosts.
Cheryl and Carmine have thought of everything in making your stay extremely comfortable, cozy, and relaxing.
We'll be telling all our friends and family about Cloran Mansion. It is a truly wonderful getaway.

As always we enjoyed our stay this past visit. First, we think that Carmine & Cheryl are wonderful hosts. As a couple they have the right balance to make your stay perfect. Carmine is an excellent cook and we are talking a WONDERFUL breakfast so come to the table hungry. Cheryl with her genuine smile will make you feel like a family member. The rooms are inviting and very well kept. We have been to the Cloran several times and always look forward to our next visit. We highly recommend this cozy Inn. You will not be disappointed!

My husband and I have stayed here four times and we can't wait to book our fifth.

Carmine and Cheryl are excellent hosts and are most accomodating to whatever needs we've had. The only thing they won't do is give up the recipes for the delicious breakfast--not until our next stay!

The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. I'm a huge fan of the hot tubs! We've stayed in Ann's Room, John's Room, and the Tower and each is charming in its own way. It's hard to choose a favorite.

I can't recommend the Cloran Mansion enough...the quality of service and commitment to the satisfaction of their guests is the best I've ever seen!!!

My husband & I had such a wonderful romantic time at the Claran Mansion! We celebrated our 18th Wedding Anniversary, and they had a personal cake and card waiting in our cottage when we arrived. They did not hesitate helping set up couples massage and wine/chocolate when setting up our reservation. I would highly recommend them!

Cheryl and Carmine are the best host for a wonderful getaway. The Mansion is beautiful and is a perfect location that allows you to enjoy downtown Galena and still feel far away from anyone else. Wonderful location for any occasion.. We will be back...
