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!

What a delightful B&B! The owners are very kind, the atmosphere is outstanding, the room we had was spacious, clean, very comfortable bed. The owners had great recommendations for food and drinks around town too! I would definitely go back!

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

My husband and I stayed at The Madison House for one night, and it was such a pleasant stay! When we arrived, we were welcomed by the B&B owners Barbara and Ken.

We stayed in the Victorian Room and loved its quaint charm. The little details such as glass cups, coasters, magazines, and super thick towels were appreciated. The room was clean with a restful blue color scheme. We were able to step out the front door to an amazing adventure through intriguing shops. We watched a play a block down the... More

A restored Victorian house with a small wrap-around porch, shaded by a grapevine, and gracious interior. We needed a quick get-away between intense work commitments, and chose this bed and breakfast based on the good reviews and the location, on a close edge of the downtown area. Proprietors Ken and Barbara greeted us warmly, as did Madison, the couple's old... More

We had a short stay here for a wedding back in November. My wife booked it for us. It was a very cute and quite. The owners were very accommodating and sweet. Centrally located, short walk to shops and restaurants.
