As this was our first trip to Madison, we were not sure where to stay. Many bed and breakfast stays in our past, we decided on the Livingston Inn. What a gem it is! Greeted warmly by our host, Dave, and shown around the beautiful home, we settled into our room. Fabulous bed and fireplace, some reading and rest. The... More

The homes is beautifully restored. The hosts were very friendly. The breakfast was excellent. Parking was convenient. Good location close to the Capitol. We could have walked if the weather was better. I recommend this Bed and Breakfast to others.

I live in Madison, so this was a "staycation" for me! Just the very best way to banish the winter blahs...and it included a huge snowstorm, which I didn't have to shovel! This entire home is so beautifully appointed that it's difficult not to be taken back in time to the Victorian era. Every room features a gas fireplace and... More

We decided to have our company party at the Livingston Inn. Peggy handled all details effortlessly for me. The home was impeccable. The catered food was outstanding. And, our hosts were gracious. Our team had a great time socializing in a warm and inviting environment. I highly recommend The Livingston Inn for such small events. My wife and I stayed... More

Our room was homey and wonderful, the whole house was beautiful, and breakfast was delicious. The owner, Peggy, sat with us and offered us wine and answered all of our questions about Madison. Worth it for sure, I would highly recommend the location and hosts. It is only a mile from the Capitol/State Street/all that fun stuff.

What a wonderful home to stay at over Thanksgiving. Peggy and Dave created a homey environment. They are warm, friendly, interesting, & interested in their guests. Comfortable bed, fantastic breakfasts, delightful and stimulating conversation. We enjoyed our visit so much, I wish we had planned to stay longer! This is the best place to stay in Madison. We will definitely... More

What made the trip most enjoyable, aside from Homecoming week in Madison, was our hostess Peggy Furlan. She is the reason for choosing a Bed and Breakfast over a sterile hotel room. When Peggy greeted us and welcomed my wife and I into her home, she personalized our experience. Peggy sat with us in the parlor and in a short... More

My husband and I stayed at the Livingston Inn for a weekend at the end of September. It is one of the nicest, most welcoming bed and breakfasts we've had the pleasure of staying in. Peggy was born to run an inn - she is gracious, charming, and incredibly helpful. She gave us an excellent restaurant recommendation, and provided plenty... More

What can I say?! This was by far the nicest, most comfortable bed and breakfast I've ever stayed at. Absolutely charming house and rooms and, with Peggy and Dave, I feel I have new friends in Madison. I wouldn't stay anywhere else should I have the opportunity to visit again. Loved the social aspect of the evening wine. Food was... More

I've stayed at the Livingston Inn for 2 weeks and everything's been great. It is quite, breakfast is amazing and varies everyday, people living there are all very kind and would do anything to help you. The property itself is an old victorian house very well preserved, has a fireplace in all the rooms and the atmosphere inside is really... More
