I have stayed at many B & B's over the years and have stayed in great and not so great places. The Livingston Inn is right up there with the best of Europe and the US. The staff was caring and attentive without being overbearing. They gave me good advise on Madison attractions. The home and my room/suite was beautifully appointed.
This was not a normal B & B continental breakfast. I was served wonderful french toast....eggs as I asked for them with crisp bacon as well as fresh fruit and all the other items one would expect from a first class breakfast. Even was given a copy of the local paper and the New York Times. Breakfast nirvana for me.
