The room was clean, the towels were wonderfully plush and soft, and the food was excellent.

We had a great stay. The location is phenomenal - we could walk to all the restaurants and shops (they had off-street parking.) The bed was comfortable - we were in the front of the house, which was the priest's original bedroom. The breakfast was very good, and Barbara and Ken were super helpful. Thanks!

We stayed at the Madison house, in the gold room, for our twenty year wedding anniversary and really enjoyed our visit. The rooms are beautiful, the owners friendly and the breakfast was delicious! We would highly recommend.

The owners Ken and Barbara are very warm and inviting. Cookies and tea were waiting for us upon arrival. We stayed in the Victorian room upstairs in the back. Comfy soft bed, and quiet inviting environment. Not overly swanky or stuffy, it delightful and accommodating. The parking behind is convenient since parking downtown can be tricky. They even let us... More

The Madison House is right in the heart of historic Nevada City, easy for a "don't touch your car" weekend. Ken and Barbara are gracious, accommodating hosts who took care of all our requests and needs. Comfortable house, good food, friendly dog. We will return!

We had an excellent time at this B&B. The hosts are very warm, engaging and accommodating. We really appreciated being right in town, yet in a place that was very quiet. The beds were comfortable, the shower full and hot, and the towels thick and soft! Excellent food.

Great bed and breakfast! In keepers are just fantastic hosts. Breakfast is home made. Vegetarian options were always available for us. We had to leave early in the morning for a course and they did not have any issue having it ready for us. We were looking for a two bed room difficult to find in Nevada City since is... More

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at The Madison Inn. Innkeepers and owners Barbara and Ken went out of their way to make us feel welcome and appreciated. Beautiful cozy inside and spotlessly clean-there seemed to be always a heavenly scent in the air from something delicious coming out of the kitchen. Breakfasts were gourmet Our upstairs spacious...

Just had a great weekend, staying with Barbara & Ken at their new Madison House (the former name is The Parsonage). Madison House is located on Broad Street, the center of Nevada City, and has parking, which is a great convenience, but quiet as if its miles away. Each room is differently decorated in the Victorian/Nevada County style. As a... More
