Galena, Illinois Attractions & Points of Interest

Start Your Trip to Galena, Illinois with Us

Cloran Mansion offers modern comforts in an atmosphere of historic charm. It combines Italianate architecture from the nineteenth century with present-day amenities like jetted tubs, gas fireplaces, cable TV, and soft and comfy robes.

Whether for a romantic getaway or a ladies weekend, we hope that you will agree that the Cloran’s location is perfect: close enough to downtown Galena to enjoy all that it offers (a three-minute drive down Franklin Street), yet far enough away to be situated on 1.5 acres of property and all the relaxation it brings. Enjoy our gazebo, our fire pit, our koi pond, our gardens or our swing for two!

The Cloran Mansion is open year round and is just a twenty-minute drive to skiing and a fifteen-minute drive to the Mississippi River, where bald eagles love to inspire visitors. We also hope that our full breakfasts each morning will get you off to a wonderful start! (Many of our guests have told us that they wind up not even needing lunch).

There is truly something for everyone in Galena country. Enjoying a good wine tasting, touring historic homes, including that of President U.S. Grant, dining in marvelous restaurants, kayaking down the Galena River, taking a nature walk, playing golf on one of many of the area’s courses, and shopping Main Street’s blocks of unique stores are just some of the activities that make a stay in Galena so wonderful.
