My husband and I just visited for 3 nights (Tower suite and Alice's room) and had a wonderful time. The house was so clean and had lots of space and we felt like we were just at a home away from home. We were just a 2 minute drive to downtown Galena. I recommenced it!

This was our second stay with Carmine and Cheryl at the Cloran Mansion in Galena and we hope to repeat the experience again in future years.
