To begin with, Carmen and Cheryl were great hosts! They both make you feel very welcomed, just as if you were family dropping in for a few days to visit. The rooms are quite nice, and the amenities, such as fireplace, Jacuzzi tub (in the tower only), free bottled water, soda drinks, Keurig coffee, and popcorn, all give you the...

Carmen and Cheryl's B & B has become so much more than a get away but rather a retreat, a home away from home. The heart of this couple is as sincere as they come. We love the property; the comfortable beds, and the delicious breakfast and the immense movie library and the personalized bricks in the walk way to...

Renata, We always look forward to your visits. We can remember the first time you and your friends stayed with us many years ago. The blessings we received meeting wonderful friends like you over the years is priceless. It was no accident that you found us.

My husband and I spent 3 nights leading up to NYE here. Unlike some other resort towns (Lake Geneva, Door County), Galena is busy and fully in season, we stayed in the cottage and bonus - so did our dog! Lovely accommodations - heated floors, comfy bed, extra blankets, movies, plush towels, in room coffee and microwave popcorn. Plenty of...

So glad you enjoyed the cottage. It is very cozy with heated floors and the 3 sided fireplace. You have the option of enjoying all that a bed and breakfast has to offer with the privacy of your own cottage. A welcome home discount will always be available to you when you return.

The Cloran Mansion is a beautiful place to stay while visiting Galena. Carmine and Cheryl are very welcoming and informative. The bed and breakfast is located just a few minutes drive from Main Street. This was nice because you were a little distance from the hustle and bustle, but not too far. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were very...

This was our second stay at the Cloran Mansion and it won't be our last. I would recommend this B&B for many reasons. It's in a great location, the grounds are beautiful and offer an adorable gazebo for a relaxing evening of stargazing, but most of all you get Carmine and Cheryl. They are sweet people who genuinely enjoy being...
