We enjoyed the Cloran Mansion very much. The room was spacious with every amenity we could want or need. We brought a DVD to watch but that wasn't necessary because there were about 700 available to choose! Breakfast was delicious and the hosts were very gracious. It was great and we hated to have to go home.

My husband and I needed to sneak away from our busy schedules running an event venue in the Lake Geneva area. From the moment Carmine answered the phone at 7am and told us about the Sarah Suite we knew we were in for a treat! Beautiful accommodations with friendly & accommodating inn keepers, Cloran Bed & Breakfast distinguishes themselves from...

Rebecca, Have your in-room massages and private dinner in your room was perfect for a romantic Saturday night without having to fight the crowds. It is not often that our guests want to help us clean up. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and are looking forward to coming back. Thank you for your kind words....

I booked this due to the 5* ratings others gave, and it was a great lead. Wonderful hosts, excellent breakfast, warm and spacious rooms. Just a 5 minute ride to downtown. We plan to return. This was our first visit to Galena, and the hosts gave us recommended restaurants in the area. They even have a standing reservation at several...

Jen, The Cottage was just what you needed for a quiet, restful getaway. The warm fireplace and heated floors take the chills away and encourage cuddling.

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...

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.
