Exceptional 10.0
My husband & I very much enjoyed our stay in the Oscar Wilde room! Our room was large & spacious with a comfy seating area w/a tv, an electric fireplace, & a table for morning coffee, playing games or enjoying some take out. The shower/tub were nice! We didn't get a chance to try out the tub. We were happy we decided to go with 2 nights, we could truly felt at home and relaxed. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. The views of the lake are stunning. The house is very comfortable, & has lots of character, I love the music they play on the first floor/community area, the coffee is amazing, all good vibes here, I would definitely recommend! Enjoy :)

Arts and Crafts B and I had a meeting in downtown
It was convenient to downtown and they were very nice about letting us bring our 7 yr old grandson even though they don't usually permit young children Beautifully furnished common areas over looking lake, decent self serve breakfast. Room was ok, WiFi was in and out.

Great B&B in Madison, Wisconsin
if not for hotel,com wouldnt have found this jewel! beautiful historic B&B on lovely setting over looking Lake Mendota. Hand written note left to us by the owners explaining everything we needed to know about getting in our room and information about good places to eat. WALKABLE to State Street even in this crazy cold Wisconsin winter! Walked to/from The Orpheum for a concert and felt safe walking back at night. Our room was small but cozy! Just what we needed for the one night stay! In summer you would be able to enjoy the porch outside the room. The first floor has lots of room to relax in and is beautifully decorated..Will be back again

Loved the view and the hosts were very welcoming. The room could use some upgrades - in particular the bathroom had peeling paint. It’s a beautiful property, breakfast was good
