It has been an exciting week at Cloran Mansion. Taking over as the fourth owner of this magnificent bed and breakfast in its long history is really a privilege, and we feel filled with gratitude. The house is beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous. But best of all about being the caretaker of this grand old place is meeting the people who come in and out of it every day. They come from every walk of life, but they all come looking to recharge their batteries, and they come with a generosity of spirit that recharges us. Case in point is our very first guests: Sandra and Charlie Eastridges of Schererville, Indiana. They could not be kinder or more generous as they see us begin our journey. So cheers to all who are beginning fresh in one way or another right now. If you get a chance to stop by Cloran Mansion, we can compare notes.
