Reviewed 5 October 2010

The Cloran Mansion had absolutely everything we needed. It was so warm, welcoming, and relaxing. We can't wait to go back and visit!

We just got married at the Cloran Mansion and it was a magical experience from beginning to end. We chose this B&B over others because they offer an "elopement" package that includes the officiant, flowers, a cake, champagne and pictures for a very reasonable price. From the moment we arrived, Carmine and Cheryl made us feel like part of the family. We stayed in the Sara Suite which is a little larger than their other rooms. It is beautifully decorated, gets a lot of sun during the day, and has a cozy fireplace. The bathroom is also very spacious and has a jacuzzi tub and vanity which was perfect for wedding preparations. Breakfast each morning was almost overwhelming with a variety of delicious selections that had us full until dinner. We also chose the "Just for Two" romance package that includes a couples massage and romantic candlelight dinner right in the room. The food was fabulous and the massages (our first ever) did not disappoint. The wedding itself was held in the garden which was obviously well cared for. There is an amazing screened in gazebo, a pond with a little waterfall, and a relaxing sitting area with a fire pit. Overall, we could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding. Carmine and Cheryl far exceeded every expectation and we hope to revisit both them and this beautiful B&B again soon!

We were married recently at the Cloran Mansion and had a wonderful time. Our family stayed there with us and we enjoyed it tremendously. The rooms are beautiful and cozy.
The breakfasts are out of this world, and they were very accommodating for special diets. I also highly recommend their wedding cake. It was amazing! Carmine and Cheryl made themselves available to us, but allowed us to come and go as we pleased all weekend. We appreciated that. They also worked out all the wedding day details with me and were patient with my many special requests. They made sure the grounds were extra clean and most impressive for the big day. My only wish was that we would have arranged the chairs for the ceremony differently so the sun wasn't in everyone's eyes. Other than that, everything was great. We hope to celebrate our anniversary there in the future.

My husband and two children loved the Cloran Mansion's condo at Longhollow Point! A beautiful, relaxing place to stay that is quiet, yet very kid friendly. The front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. The condo had a great balcony, a wonderful jacuzzi with a TV and fireplace in the bathroom, a kitchen area, a very comfortable king size bed with luxurious bedding, as well as a comfortable pull out couch for our two sons.

The indoor pool and game room were terrific! Our kids didn't want to leave either one!

Breakfast at the Cloran Mansion was nothing like anything we had experienced before. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was elegant and charming. Cheryl and Carmine were excellent hosts and made us feel right at home. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Carmine & Cheryl are wonderful hosts! They are extremely hospitable and made us feel right at home. The attention they give you from the first moment you arrive to the moment you leave it outstanding. And their breakfast is the best breakfast we have ever had! The room was perfect and relaxing, complete with everything we could need or want! We will ABSOLUTELY return!

My wife and I had taken a motorcycle ride through the hills of Southern Wisconsin, ending our weeklong trip with Cheryl and Carmine at the Cloran Mansion. What a relaxing stay we had. The inn keepers are accommodating, welcoming, and the food was great. They pay attention to detail. What a relaxing way to spend a couple of days. We both want to go back again. Galena is a great town for shopping, food and arts.
