Arbor House is where I stay whenever I come to Madison. This trip I stayed for 4 nights in the Aldo Leopold Room overlooking the beautiful Arboretum. Each morning Cathie, the innkeeper, made a delicious healthy homemade breakfast and in the evening there was tea and an evening treat or homemade dessert waiting for me. Looking forward to my next...

Very nice. We had the tavern room which, appropriately, used to be a tavern in the 1800s. It was a spacious room with a cozy upstairs, where there was a fresh cranberry-walnut tart waiting for us. Breakfast was hearty. If you're interested in the outdoors this Eco friendly place near the arboretum is good for you.

Arbor House was a great find for a place to stay in Madison. We loved the quiet charm of the B and B and the warmth and welcoming nature of our host-Cathie. The rooms were great, spacious and comfortable. The room felt as if it was your own--not filled with overly kitschy B and B "charm", but rather a good... More

...if "home" is very comfortable, with lovely amenities and sunshine streaming in the windows amidst the trees. This is a simple place, not over-stuffed and fussy, just charmingly cozy, nicely decorated, quiet and clean. We found it very comfortable and the owner, Cathie, very accomodating and personable. Hope to be back on our next Madison visit.

We found it very easy to fall in love with Arbor House. Cathie, the host, greeted us with great enthusiasm and warmth the moment we entered the house. Although we had prior dinner plans, we loved that a sweet treat would be served in the evening (ice cream on our first night) and appreciated that Cathie baked up a delicious... More

This was our third stay at Arbor House. Our past visits were fine; comfortable rooms, good food, friendly hosts and staff. This time we were treated well until we had a complaint, then we got the cold shoulder. Instead of appreciating the fact that we were mentioning the relatively minor things before they became a bigger problem for us, the... More

When the guests reported that the DVD in their guest room was not working I offered to take a look at it immediately and resolved it by switching the remote and excused my self from their room when the DVD was playing. When we were contacted three additional times concerning that there was a malfunction mid-way through and that the... More

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

Although the Special Beverage Hour is an amenity offered daily, the light appetizer is a feature paired with the beverage on Friday and Saturday evenings only. As midweek guests, we were happy to accommodate the request for an early full breakfast and these folks were included in the 7:30am "corporate quick" service. However, with three other guest rooms filled and... 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...
