Peggy is the greatest. Above and beyond. She gave us all the time we needed for suggestions and help around town. Came home to chocolates in the evening. In the AM, fresh berries and cream, coffee ready, fresh bakery, and a delicious spinach egg dish. Aveda shampoo and conditioner. Thanks Peggy!

My husband and I stayed at the Livingston Inn late September, early October last year. We not only enjoyed the brief Indian summer weather in Madison, but also had the most wonderful stay at this delightful b&b! The house is beautiful and exactly what you expect from a b&b - antiques, charm, etc. All the photos online were very accurate.... More

I will stay here every single time I'm in Madison. I've already recommended Livingston to friends and coworkers knowing some of them travel to Madison. Perfect location if you're seeing a show at High Noon Saloon. The venue is just a few short blocks away. Peggy is the absolute nicest. You definitely feel welcome in her home. She easily recommend...

We can't wait to stay there again! Peggy was great - friendly and very helpful. She recommended a great place for us to eat dinner. The house is BEAUTIFUL, clean and very cozy. We loved our room - especially the fireplace! We would definitely recommend the Livingston Inn and it will be our destination every time we go through Madison.

Absolutely wonderful stay. The location, house and hosts make it a must when visiting Madison. Peggy and Dave are super familiar with the area, and give wonderful suggestions. The Weary Traveler, Pigs in a Fur Coat and The Alchemy were off the beaten path, but well worth the extra effort. We would stay again without hesitation

My husband and I stayed one night due to a short trip but found Livingston Inn to be one of our favorite B&B's. Peggy is very accommodating, the room was tastefully decorated and clean. It's a great house. You really feel at home! Breakfast was delicious and relaxed with pleasant conversation. We will be back in one week!

I arrived late (a little before 9pm) and was warmly greeted by Peggy and her dog Ella who both treated me to a wonderful glass of wine. My room was just perfect and Peggy cheerfully accommodated my request for an early breakfast. What a great place!

We stayed at the Livingston Inn this past June, and it was a wonderful experience. Peggy is the ultimate hostess; she is gracious and welcoming, and she makes you feel right at home! The amenities are gorgeous. This home has been lovingly restored, the garden is completely charming, and there is a pathway that takes you directly to the lake.... More
