Madison House should not be missed when you're staying in Nevada City. Ken and Barbara are amazing hosts - they will make you feel like family. The breakfast is always delicious; fresh homemade cookies are always available at the coffee and tea station. The rooms are all lovely - very clean, comfortable, and inviting. There is also a small fridge provided for guests to keep important beverages (you know what I'm talking about!) chilled. The location can't be beat. And there is parking behind this beautiful home so you don't have to hunt for a spot. Treat yourselves to a stay here. You'll return every year, like we do.

This place is like home with kind and welcoming hosts, clean and comfortable rooms, and central location in Nevada City. I stay there each year during the Wild and Scenic film festival and the place now feels like my second home. We love that there is parking in the back and no need to use the car all weekend. You can walk to every venue. Very close to my favorite restaurant “New Moon”. Extra special touches in the room with beautiful and comfy goose down comforters and hosts are sensitive to special diets. They even baked a special gluten free tart for me. Perfect trip.

We love Barbara and Ken at the Madison House. We have been staying with them for 6 years during the wild and scenic film festival. It feels like staying with family each year. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is superb. We are vegan and they are able to accommodate our eating preference. We can also walk to every place in town without having to use our car. We will be back next year. Thank you!!!

We stayed in the Balcony Room in Oct 2019. The host and hostess were amazing. Super attentive and the breakfast was great! High quality linen, attention to detail, and super clean. The location is perfect. Quiet yet steps away from shops and restaurants. Highly recommend.

Our family met to celebrate our mother's 80th birthday and for one night the house was ours! The quaint well decorated home, the comfortable private rooms, the warm hospitality and delicious food, and the great location all made for a memorable stay in Nevada City. Thank you Barbara and Ken.
