Our stay at The Madison House B&B was perfect in every way! Ken and Barbara are such gracious hosts and we enjoyed our visits on the porch with them in the mornings. The location couldn't have been any better - just on the edge of shopping in the historical district on one side and all of the beautiful historical homes... More

Ken and Barbara were delightful hosts! I was a solo traveler on this trip for a workshop with a complicated schedule. They were very accommodating and so gracious - both Ken and Barbara wanted my stay there to be a great one regardless of how little time I could be there in the day. They were so interesting and committed... More

Beautifully-appointed, spotless, relaxed, and elegant. Barbara and Ken make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Delicious breakfast and private parking. Perfect! Be aware that the stairs to the front rooms are a bit steep. Check out Szabo for wine tasting and the ice cream shop around the corner - Swiss Orange Chip, yum!

I stayed at the Madison house for five nights in June. Barbra and Ken are excellent hosts and their breakfast is super good! The house is really nicely furnished and it definitely has a character! The property is located very near all the major streets in Nevada City. It is a lovely place for solo travelers as well as couples,... More

My sons and I stayed here during the 4th of July weekend. It was perfect! Right in town. Walking distance from all the great places that Nevada City offers. I had friends meet us and we were able to enjoy the great front porch with comfy wicker chairs, sit, mingle and catch up before going to dinner. Barbara and Ken... More
