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.

We came to Madison for a culinary weekend with two other couples, and we had an outstanding stay at the Livingston Inn. Peggy made us feel very welcome, and the inn immediately felt like a comfortable home base for us: beautiful vintage bedrooms, spacious common rooms, access to the lake, a tire swing in the front yard. The rooms had... More

We visited Madison to move our oldest daughter into graduate school at UW in August. Four of us stayed in the Willow and General Pickering rooms and were truly welcomed and made to feel at home by Peggy. The Inn is beautiful, the rooms are comfortable and up to date. Coffee and breakfast in the mornings were delicious and enjoyable... More

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Livingston Inn and loved it. Peggy immediately made us feel at home and she talked with us about the many things to do in Madison. Our room was the General Pickering room. Wonderfully comfortable bed, great amenities in bathroom, and very homey feel. Breakfast was spectacular. I like a B &... More

On our recent overnight stay in Madison, we camped at the Livingston Inn, a lovely B&B run by a lovely couple. We chatted with Peggy for a good while the afternoon we arrived and found many common interests. She gave us many recommendations for restaurants (the one we chose was excellent) and things to see and do in the area... More

Peggy welcomed us into her home and spent some time with us just visiting. We talked about mutual interests and the Inn. It was all so relaxing and I felt like I was talking with an old friend. Be sure to walk down to the lake if you visit where you get a bit of a city view and UW... More
