We very much enjoyed our stay in the Victorian room. Ken and Barbara were very attentive to our needs which made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was very good and we would come back for another stay. The location was fantastic, you could walk out the front door and be directly in The heart of Nevada City.

Barbara and Ken are a delight. They have improved the home and garden so much! The home has a contemporary elegance feeling while nestled in this little historic town. A sit on the front porch is a must. Great place to stay mid-week to get away from it all and relax or on one of the many 'parade' weekends. You... More

As a traveling musician, I run into my fair share of lodging nightmares. This was far from it, in fact, it was a dream come true. The owners welcomed us as their own family. The room was clean and quaint and the breakfast was truly sensational. I will definitely be staying here again. Thank you for the great nights sleep!

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.
