The Arbor House is a beautiful old home on a busy street. We initially were concerned that it may be noisy but traffic died down at night and it was quiet. Stayed in the Parkside room which was ok except for a few things. The knob to pull for the shower was nearly impossible to pull up bit took two... More

This has been the third time at the Arbor House and we have never been disappointed. We were there the first weekend in August, 2014, still a busy season, but the service did not suffer. The breakfasts were a delight with some unusual combinations of Quinoa and vegetables, as well as some different kinds of French toasts with nuts. All... More

It was our first time at Arbor House, but we will be back. Cozy, quiet lodging, in spite of being on a fairly busy street. Friendly check-in with lots of suggestions on where to go for dinner, phone number for taxi, etc. We were pleased to learn there were margaritas and nibbles upon check-in; the innkeeper even made a platter...

What a great place to stay in Madison. This was our first time to Madison, and what a treat it was to stay here. Loved the location near the arboretum and a small lake (where we went kayaking) plus LOVED using the bikes to explore the city. Very bike friendly place! Our room was lovely and the breakfasts were delicious.... More

Arbor House was perfect. The facilities were modern and stylish, while adhering to their mission of being environmental friendly. It seems like a bit of a cross between a B&B style and a boutique hotel. We were upgraded to the John Nolan room, so we had great value for the money. I haven't seen the other rooms. We had a...

This was our second visit to the Arbor House and will not be our last! We stayed in the Tap Room which is roomy, clean and quiet. The young women who were our hostesses could not have been more helpful or friendly. Nice extras are the wine and appetizer hour and evening dessert. Breakfast was healthy and delicious. We had...

Accommodations are quite expensive in Madison but the room in which we stayed was not in any way worth the $175.00 nightly rate. There were two chairs and a desk but only one lamp making it impossible for more than one person to read. The T.V. was situated so that you would have had to perch on the end of... More

In tracking this review we are unable to track and reach out to the guest directly but we are making the assumption that the evening stay fell during a 48 hour, midweek family vacation, but I most certainly worked diligently at the inn full days the remaining 28 days in August. A previous similar but confusing comment came from a... More

Just stayed here for the first time, after driving by for twenty years thinking, " I should stay there sometime!" Do not wait twenty years! We reserved and stayed in the Aldo Leopold room, filled with a charming, although a bit squeaky in an old fashioned sort of way due presumably to the wooden bed frame, canopy bed covered in... More

Each summer, our extended family takes a weekend vacation together. Three couples, no children. This year we decided to explore Madison, WI. Arbor house is a wonderfully quiet oasis, right in the heart of the city. It sits just outside the U of W arboretum. It is very close to both the University, and the Capitol. We stayed in the...
