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

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

We were in Madison to visit our son who attends the University of Wiscinsin and the trip was enhanced by our stay at The Livingston Inn. Fantastic Gothic Revival home , friendly and enthusiastic hosts, and beautiful view of the lake from our room. We'll be back!

If you are looking for an exceptional home-away-from-home experience in Madison, The Livingston Inn is the place! Peggy and Dave are outstanding hosts, welcoming and very knowledgeable about places and happenings in Madison. Delicious home-made breakfasts in an elegant dining room and evening wine in the parlor are settings for great conversation with interesting fellow guests. The Inn is a... More

I am from Madison, but came back to visit. This was such a treat, that I invited my sister to come for breakfast. I was in the cottage at the back and enjoyed it immensely. But mostly I am grateful to Peggy for the personal and warm reception and interest.

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.
