My wife and I just spent a night at the The Artful Lodger Inn and we haven't stopped singing its praises. The location is great, just a short walk from all of the shops, restaurants and bars along Thames St...yet it's nestled in a very quiet area that feels miles away from all the hustle and bustle.

Lisa and Randy prepare a delicious breakfast and can answer all of your questions about finding good places to visit and eat. There is a parking lot behind the inn large enough to accommodate all guests even if the 7-room inn... More

This was our first stay in a bed and breakfast and we truly enjoyed it. The innkeepers Lisa and Randy had emailed us ahead of time and gave us tips on restaurants and things to do in the area. The location is great, it's close to the mansions, shops and many restaurants. It was by far, the best breakfast we... More
