My husband, our My husband, our dog, and I stayed at the Cloran Mansion's Antonio's Cottage over the Christmas weekend and had the best, most-relaxing stay! The cottage was very accommodating with a sink, coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, satellite TV, DVD player, free DVD rentals and snacks, two-person whirlpool bath, separate shower, fireplace, comfy couch, comfy bed, and dining table....

We wanted a relaxing week before the holidays, and the fact that we didn't have to kennel our small dog made this the best possible choice. Antonio's Cottage is fantastic! Your own little piece of paradise, and spotlessly clean and odor-free to boot. Even with my sensitive nose, you'd never know they allowed pets in here. I found that a...

With the B&B beautifully decked out for the winter holidays, and a warm glowing fireplace in our Sara's Suite, we immediately felt at home -- a very lovingly maintained home. The innkeepers' breakfast hospitality included delicious Danish aebleskiver pancakes, sphere-shaped doughy goodness that resembled...

Since discovering Galena two years ago, we've stayed five times. Three of those five were at the Cloran Mansion, our favorite B&B in Galena. Carmine makes the best breakfast and he and Cheryl make for great company. My fiancee was having dreams about the wonderful potatoes that Carmine makes so last Saturday we booked a room on just a couple...

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.
