Fun new inn right near downtown Madison. Recently opened so still figuring out the ropes, but great promise for the future. Awesome room layouts, still in need of some updating. Two person jacuzzi is a nice touch; would love a working fireplace to make the experience complete. A little high priced in the current state with a fairly basic breakfast, but would happily come back in nicer weather to enjoy the location right on the lake. Would recommend for people who want to experience downtown Madison and the rich architectural history of the city.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Mendota Lake House B&B is perfectly situated in downtown Madison on the shore of Madison's largest lake, Lake Mendota. We are within walking distance of the state Capitol (15 min.)and the University of Wisconsin campus (1 mile.) The stunning 1911 arts and crafts home was built in the prairie school style by local architects Louis W. Claude and Edward F. Starck. Hosts and owners Bob and David have lived in Madison for more than 30 years and offer a wealth of information about the area. Guests enjoy a hearty continental breakfast with fresh and organic products. We have free parking and free wifi. Don't expect a fancy B&B. We are plain and simple. We will provide you with what we look for in our own travels -- a clean room with a comfy bed at a reasonable price in a great location. Languages spoken include French, Italian and Spanish. The house is in great shape but we are doing restoration work as time permits. Hope to see you soon! ... more less
