We just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary with our parents and adult children. Everything was awesome. The house and cottage were beautifully decorated. The grounds were impeccable. The food was amazing! And Carmine & Cheryl were incredible hosts! They accomodated all of our wants and needs. The firepit was great entertainment for us each night. The gazebo and pond were very relaxing. Everyone enjoyed the whirlpools in their rooms. We were only there for the weekend but I felt more relaxed and stress-free than I have on a weeklong vacation. We will cherish these memories and look forward to staying with them again.

Cheryl and Carmine are extraordinary hosts that go the extra mile to make you feel special and appreciated. The attention to details is boundless from the decor to the amenities. No corners are cut. I fact, breakfast is delicious and very generous; cookies upon arrival with complimentary water, pop, coffee and popcorn. Our room was spacious and the bed amazingly comfortable. We enjoyed our private whirlpool and fireplace. The weather didn't allow us to enjoy the outdoor gardens, gazebo and walkways so we will be sure to come back to experience them this summer. We highly recommend Claron Mansion and these very special hosts.

This was our first B&B experience and it was fantastic. Carmine and Cheryl made sure our stay was top notch. From the divine breakfasts that we enjoyed to having reservations ready on Saturday night to the wonderful dining establishments in Galena, they made our stay unforgettable. I would highly recommend the Cloran Mansion for your next getaway. The mansion is beautiful and the rooms are immaculate. Seriously consider the Cloran Mansion for your next Bed and Breakfast excursion. R&L Iowa Falls,Iowa

This was a first time bed and breakfast experience for us and we couldn't have been happier! Our hosts were very welcoming and gracious from the minute we walked in the door! Everything was decorated beautifully, accommodating with all the comforts of home. The food was out of this world and the little extras like homemade coffee cake were quite nice! We will definitely be back to stay at the Cloran Mansion!

We were looking for someplace cozy and relaxing, and we found it in Cloran Mansion. We stayed in John's room with the thermostatically controlled fireplace and jacuzzi for two. We didn't watch much television, but a flatscreen with satellite was available in the room. Breakfast was wonderful, and our hosts were very gracious and genuine. We will be staying here again soon!!

Thank you for very relaxing time, We will be back SOON. John & Joanne
