We stayed here on Valentines weekend and were very satisfied. Great hosts, breakfast, accommodations, and location. In fact, I have stayed at B&B's in many states during my 15 years of traveling, and this was the first time a host played guitar for us during breakfast! Hanover is the first town south of Galena, so if you're looking for a... More

Good friends of ours recommended the Arftul Lodger to us and we're so glad they did! From the moment we arrived, we were graciously welcomed into Maury and Patricia's home and treated as family. They offered ideas of things to see, places to eat, and had an excellent knowledge of the surrounding area. They loaned my husband and I field... More

This is a fabulous alternative to the over-priced B&Bs in Galena. The trip from Hanover to Galena is only about 25 minutes and the road is the most scenic in the entire state. If you are skiing at Chestnut, you can avoid that over-priced, run-down scene and stay at a lovely place with fabulous breakfasts. You won't need to eat... More

I stayed at the Artful Lodger for 3 months this summer while working temporarily in the area. I did not expect to find such a pleasant location, and home to stay in. The owners of this B&B go above and beyond the standards in providing the rare combination of high quality service and a relaxing place to stay; rooms are... More

My husband and I have stayed at this b and b three times. We keep returning for the excellent breakasts and the delightful company. We truly enjoyed our experience. I was skeptical the first time when we pulled up to in the parking lot that seemed a bit junky...the rooms are simple, but you certainly get more than you pay... More

If you decide to take a trip to Galena, but are looking for a peaceful retreat, I whole-heartedly recommend the Artful Lodger. The hosts, Maury and Patricia, were absolutely wonderful people and very accomodating to my husband and I. They have a lovely piano that they allow guests to play, and also host numerous musicians and sponsor events throughout the... More

Stay away from this b/b, it looks charming but let me assure you it is the Bates b/b. The rooms are even ok, it is the current owners. It is a type of b/b that you feel you are invading THEIR home! If you stay out and ski for the midnight ski at Chestnut, the owners will be waiting for... More

Just a heads up if Chestnut Resort is full and you saw this b/b as an alternative, stay away at all costs! The b/b is in Hanover, eight miles from Chestnut resort. It looks decent on the exterior, in fact this terrible review is not about the rooms either! Stay away until new people own this establishment! the current owners... More
