    The whole experience was great. My only suggestion would be for coffee pot in the room because I enjoy drinking coffee while still in my night clothes. Other than that, it was wonderful!!!

    The home is surrounded by exceptional gardens that the owners, Bob and Dave, have cultivated over 7 years. They offer a garden tour every night at 5. Ours was supposed to end at 5:30, but it was just after 6 when we finished, completely awed by their knowledge and passion. The continental breakfast is just that; not as complete as other B&B's probably offer. However, Bob's scones (his recipe perfected during a year of the pandemic) are the best I've ever, ever tasted! And, he willingly shares it.

    Loved it!

    We had a wonderful stay at the Mendota Lake B&B! We will happily return the next time we are in Madison. The place was fully booked during our stay but it was still the most quiet and tranquil B&B experience I’ve ever had. Location is great too. The breakfast is continental but we really enjoyed it and had plenty to eat. Don’t hesitate to book this place.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The house was so cluttered you couldn't enjoy any space. We were never even greeted by anyone, we had to figure out the house our selves. And if you're looking for breakfast, plan to go out because the half of a hash brown and cold bagel probably won't do it for you.

    Awesome

    It was a repeat visit..we had minimal interaction with our hosts because of covid. We felt they did an extraordinary job in cleanliness and mask mandates. It was a great escape..
