A group of 12 of us (six couples) recently took a bike trip to Monroe from Madison for a night and stayed at the Mansion. It worked out really well - the Mansion is just a few blocks off the Badger trail and ~35 miles from Madison. We reserved the entire house for one night. It's a large, beautiful home,... More

We stayed in the suite which was very nice. Dinner at The Dining Room in Monticello was a great recommendations. The continental breakfast was a little light but adequate. the host was very pleasant. All in all a very nice stay.

We had been looking for something special as part our a few days in Wisconsin and came up on the Ludlow Mansion in Monroe. First impressions are rather mixed with a front entrance that could definitely do with a spruce up and maybe a new front door, but once inside we were blown away with old world charm and a... More

We stayed in May's suite. It was so small you could just maneuver around the bed. The only dresser in the room is used for linens, so there is nowhere to hang your clothing. The queen bed was comfortable and the room looked nice overall, but the plastic flower arrangements and cheap plastic window blinds (too short for the tall... More

This is a beautiful old mansion with accommodating host. After a long day of biking the large whirlpool tub in the Ludlow room was very nice. Breakfast was good, a lighter fair which was nice since we were biking a second day.

We absolutely loved the Ludlow. Randy was so informative about the mansion and the surrounding area. The breakfast was super and the coffee splendid! Would highly recommend the Ludlow and Monroe area.

The location of the mansion is ideal, close enough to walk to downtown but far enough away so there is no traffic. The owners/staff were very nice and very accommodating. The inside of the room and the mansion overall is in excellent condition, especially considering the time period the decor is from. The outside however, could use some maintenance, but... More

We were visiting the area to visit New Glarus Brewery and decided to stay overnight. The Ludlow Mansion caught my eye because of it's beauty and history, also because it's a short drive from New Glaurs. The area is peaceful, the mansion is truly lovely, the staff was wonderful and genuinely made us feel at home. We will absolutely be... More

I had the opportunity recently to travel to Monroe Wisconsin. I was quite dismayed at my selection of hotels. I may be a snob, but I don't do Super 8. I've to never travel into an area that didn't have a name brand mid level or above hotel. I decided to look at Bed and Breakfast Inn. I thought this... More

My mother had passed away so we came from out of town looking for a peaceful relaxing place to stay. The Ludlow mansion was just the ticket. Randy and Shirley made us feel right at home, showing us sitting rooms, tv rooms and the dining areas that we could make ourselves comfortable in. With my mother passing, we had a... More
