My mother and I spent two nights at the Iron Gate Inn over Mother's Day weekend. Our rooms were lovely and comfortable. I stayed in the Glen Ellyn room and spent several hours in the early morning and late evening on the darling porch. The bed had a firm mattress, so if you are used to something softer ask about...

The Iron Gate Inn is a beautiful place to stay. Our room, St. Charles, was very clean and comfortable. The Inn keepers thought of everything you might need for an overnight stay. We enjoyed walking around Madison and checking out all of the city's history. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast was tasty. The only thing missing was a... More

This was such a lovely stay that I might even send Dee & Steve a thank-you note. My room was lovely, cozy, classy and clean. There are personal touches, but it doesn't feel like you're in your grandma's attic. I slept very well and thoroughly enjoyed the candle-light breakfast.

The hubby and I were looking for a one night get away and found room at the Iron Gate on relatively short notice - got lucky I suppose :) Loved the old historic house, the hosts, Dee & Steve were friendly and welcoming and the food was delicious and plentiful...esp. the pumpkin bread. I had read reviews of the Iron... More

As a graduate of the local-area college, I long ago fell in love with Madison and return regularly for my college reunions. This year's reunion had me and several of my sorority sisters staying at Iron Gate Inn and I believe this will be where I make my weekend home on all my future trips to the area! The home... More

The stately home has lots of character, and is just off the main street within walking distance of downtown Madison. (Proximity to main street means you will hear traffic at night and fairly early in the morning.) The hosts are wonderful, and breakfasts are delicious and filling. I have to agree with another review's description of the fresh fruit plate... More

very tastefully decorated with super comfortable bed. the fresh fruit plate that was the first course at breakfast was outstanding. I would certainly stay here again although the price was similar to an upscale hotel for such a small town.

Did my homework before settling on Iron Gate Inn and we were not disappointed. Old federal style home built in 1840 took me back to the same style house I was raised in in KY. The owners are very pleasant folks and the accommodations are quite nice. We stayed in the St. Charles room. Just as other reviews state, we... More

Absolutely LOVED everything about the Iron Gate Inn. Steve and Dee are wonderful and gracious hosts. The Inn itself is gorgeous, clean, and beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Garden Suite - which was once the summer kitchen and loved the privacy of a separate entrance. Everything was spot on with our expectations for a quiet, restful weekend get-away. We... More

We were visiting the Vevay wine festival and wanted to stay for the evening, in doing some research I found Madison and the Iron Gate Inn. What a find it was, the B&B is located a few blocks from the town centre and the riverwalk. The town has lots to offer from historical home tours, galleries, good restaurants, a fabulous... More
