This is a beautiful old building with awesome woodwork and period decorations. We stayed in the Harmon room which had a nice warm fireplace and a wonderful bathroom with a rainshower head in the shower. Very nice! The host, Peggy greated us when we arrived and was very friendly and informative about the area. We also thoroughly enjoyed breakfast in... More

Peggy and Dave were wonderful hosts. They offered great advice and accommodated our needs. I really enjoyed conversations with then and the other guests. The house is beautiful, and breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend the Livingston Inn to a friend and would stay there again.

I had a great two-night stay here in late September. Peggy was very warm and sweet while greeting me (with a glass of great red wine!), and she made the check-in process so easy! It was easy to come/go as I needed, and there was always a delicious little treat (toffees, caramels) waiting for guests for a "nightcap." I stayed... More

There probably is no better way to experience the exciting city that Madison has become than to begin your day at Livingston Inn. We enjoyed the beauty of the home, the morning gatherings for breakfast, and the quick walk to local restaurants and the Square. The friendly hosts are great resources for things to do and places to eat. All... More

We had a lovely stay last week. Our room was quite warm, but Peggy turned on the A/C and, even better, brought us a fan. We were very comfortable after that. Breakfasts were wonderful, and we certainly enjoyed sitting in the conservatory to drink a glass of wine, or read the morning papers.

This was our 2nd year at the historical Livingston Inn B & B and my husband and I were delighted to find it as perfect as last year. If you are fortunate enough to arrive late afternoon, the sunsets on the lake will amaze. The house is meticulously maintained and beautifully landscaped. The location is perfectly situated for walking to... More

My husband and I spent a night at the beautiful Livingston Inn and enjoyed everything about it. The Inn itself is a lovely sandstone home dating from 1854; it's on the National Register of Historic Properties and has a pretty garden and access to the lake and a pier. Walking out there in the morning was very relaxing. David wasn't... More

My husband and I were in Madison for 3 days to visit our son and his girlfriend. The Livingston Inn is absolutely gorgeous, and it was apparent that our hosts take great pride and pleasure in sharing their wonderful historic home. The location was conveniently located, and we were perfectly comfortable in the newly opened Harman Hideaway Room. Peggy was... More

We rented the entire Bed and Breakfast for my son's wedding. David and Peggy have developed relationships with top-notch caterers and were able to help the couple secure everything they needed for a beautiful and relaxed wedding. The rooms were beautiful and extremely comfortable and breakfast was delicious - David's baked goods, Peggy's wonderful egg dishes, fresh fruit...We were satisfied... More

my wife an i truly enjoyed the Livingston Inn for our anniversary. The interior decoration was exquisite. my favorite space was the glass enclosed outside seating area were I sat and drank my wonderful morning coffee. But perhaps the best part of the stay was the morning brunch shared with some of the most interesting people I have met.
